Folding out. I'm not sure I can fold in, it would land on his penis and then when he scrunches up his legs, it will just be pushed back up on his stump. That's why I've been folding outwards...

What its baby on weight? My boy was 9# and it was ok on him...fbos 8 snaps. But seem like they have gotten harder as he had gotten bigger as rise seems pretty low. I was told to use alcohol since billi blanket made it prematurely fall off & it still wasz bleeding a bit at 2 weeks.

Fold it smaller twice and see it that helps. It will stay below the cord and above the penis.

Stop the alcohol and look into using something else to clean his stump. The alcohol will tend to make the stump stay on much longer, and it really isn't the best thing for taking care of infections. Other then that no diaper ideas sorry, but congrats!

I gave DS a bath with me for a week after birth using PP herbs and his fell off in 8 days and we never really had issues with it. As for the peeing issues I am not sure DS was a super pee-er also.

You can bathe him with very gentle soap and water, and then pat it dry to keep the cord stump clean. It will get gunky smelling and gross before it's ready to fall off though. If the skin is irritated, you could put a little lanolin or something similar around it, on his tummy skin, but not on the stump itself.
Make sure his little bits are pointing downwards when you change him - that should help!
All the best!
