All my seedlings look healthy for 4 or 5 days and then they suddenly fall and the stem looks like this.

This damping off happens most often when it is too moist. Seedlings need just a little time to dry out on the surface between waterings. I would try again using brand new soil just in case there is a disease from wet soils.
