We're an EC'ing family, and at night DD2 sleeps in a prefold/t-shirt on a wool pad and I change her whenever she's wet at night. This ends up being every 2 hours when she wakes enough to pee. Soon...

They won't fray. Just cut. You have too many other things to be doing right now to be hemming former-onesies (unless that's something you enjoy doing, in which case, go for it). I have onesies that...

Oh, and OP - is your babe spitting up 5x PER DAY, or just 5 times in 12 days? If it's in 12 days, I'd say you're on the side of a rare-spitter-upper. NB's just do that, and honestly 5 times in 12...
