Umbilical chord care?
Jenney - posted on 11/18/2008
I did not start CDing my kids until they were 26 mos and 4 mos. However, I use thirsties diaper covers and I know they have a newborn size with an umbilical cord cut out. Basically if you keep the area clean and dry you will be fine.

good question, thanks for asking it! We are also expecting a baby in march, but our 3rd. I haven't decided if I will go for the cd'ing with him or not...seems like a lot of diaper washing (I'll have 3 in the cloth diapers. Yikes!) A follow up ?: are there any special considerations with infants/newborns in cloth diapers?

I started with cloth pretty much right out of the hospital, and I think the guidelines are the same for all diapers--just make sure the diaper is well below the cord stump (it should be an inch or two below the belly button anyway). Good luck with your new little one!
