I'm going to be new to cloth diapering a newborn in a few months. I didn't start with my first daughter until just after her first birthday. Anyway, how do you deal with the umbilical cord with these newborn diapers?

I know that the Kissaluv's 0's have the umbilical cord snap-down but you still have a put a cover over it and wouldn't that irritate the cord just as much? Plus, I'm trying to go with mostly AIOs this time.

So - will the diapers bother the cord? My daughter's fell off when she was just over a week old, so I'm hoping for the same again this time. ;-) Right now I have some Re uz em's AIOs, a bunch of baby soft wraps SIOs, a few fuzzi bunz, and a NB FMBG. Do you think these will be a problem?

I do actually have some NB sposies left over from my DD because she outgrew them too quickly. Plus the hospital gives a package of sposies - perhaps I'll just use those up in the first week or so and start with the cloth after the cord is gone if it will be a problem.

Just curious what others do! Thanks!

Prorap covers have a notch, and Very Baby all-in-ones have a low rise.
