Maybe different doctors or hospitals have different policies so I wish you the best. Also I just received this email today! Dear CBR...

"i'm just confused why you would bank it instead of letting it flow into your baby after the birth?" I like so many others was not familiar with delayed cord cutting.

My thoughts, there was a time when children who weren't Caucasian weren't able to find dolls of their ethnicity. My children are biracial, AA/White and I used to buy my DD's only AA dolls. Now if I can't find one I will buy a doll that looks Caucasian.
