Can babies not wear pants for a while because of their umbelica cord? I was packing up a bag for the baby today- for the hospital and that thought came into my head so I figured I would ask here since many of you have other children..just wondering if the waist of the pants would rub on the belly button area and if its better to not wear pants at all until the stump falls off?

Right. One pieced outfits are the way to go at least until the stump is gone. You do not want to irritate that area while it is healing.<br><br><br>
Best of luck!

soft, comfy one-piece outfits are definitely the way to go. My new baby is due in March, so I'll get him a warm one-piece sleeper for coming home.

Okay I'm confused about this. My mw told me specifically not to bring onesies because they can irritate the stump. Something about them being too tight in the tummy area? I'm taking nb shirts and gown sleepers, which are technically one piece but don't button at the bottom causing resistance.

We have a bunch of 1/2 onesies. They don't snap underneath. All DS wore for the first few weeks were the open bottomed gowns. Love them!

Yeah most of the stuff I have is gowns and footed sleeper type things but I had gotten two pairs of pants and a really cute onsie so wasnt sure when the baby could wear those. Thanks for all the help, what would I do without you guys <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh yeah I forgot. This time of year I'd put baby in a one piece sleeper. DS was born in August so the gown was okay.
