With our first 2 kids they told us to use alcohol preps to clean them and they fell off in about a week. Then with our last one who was born this past April, they said not to use alcohol and it took 3 weeks and yes it began to stink! It was so gross

I guess I was lucky, my sons never smelt, the only issue I had was it would get blood on his clothing.
