C finally lost his umbilical cord! Yay!
: And it only took 3 weeks.
Ok, almost 3 weeks, but still. The nurse at the hospital tried to tell me it would only be a few days [I wanted her to trim it cuz it kept catching on things--it was very big and almost fan-shaped]. His belly button still looks moist and a little red.
We're cloth diapering mostly. I don't have a huge stash for this size so I keep running out, plus it took a while to figure out how to cloth diaper him without rubbing his umbilical cord [not an issue anymore, yay!]. We do have a lot of issues with poop leaking out, no matter how I roll and fold the dipes. I have two types: prefolds and contours. And the moisture wicks from the diaper to the edging on the legs and waist.
One day I ended up changing his outfit 3 times cuz of the wetness. I'm hoping once he grows into the next size it will be better. But I think we're going to have an issue with the prefolds cuz he's outgrowing the newborn size but the next size I have seems huge compared to him, so we'll see.
I'm also ECing him some, but he seems to HATE being on the potty. Cries as soon as I get him in position.
I thought maybe it was the cold of the seat, so I've been trying to hover him over the little potty, but he still hollers. Funnily he stops screaming just long enough to start the flow of pee, then resumes.
I don't want to do something he hates, but he almost always pees if I wait it out a minute or two.
I keep hoping he'll adjust.....
