Cloth and the NB

I've been waiting patiently for DS3's embelical stump to fall off before starting him in his NB cloth. That stump is stubborn! He's 8 days old and it doesn't seem like it will be coming off for a little while longer. Has anyone used cloth over the stump? Did it irritate it? I've been folding the sposie down so it doesn't touch it. He's got such tiny hips. Thanks ladies!

Cloth diapers on the stump did irritate the stump a bit. Zoe's did fall off a lot sooner than Aiden's, but otherwise no issues. However, we mostly used newborn prefolds during that stump time which we could make be below the stump without issue. Smile

No advice, but I hope it hurries up so you can CD without having to worry about it!

Thanks ladies. I'm testing out the CDs today for the first time. The cover was irritating that stump a bit even folded down, so I stuck thick gauze over it. So far, so good! I love NB cloth. So tiny and cute. Smile
