How well do Thirsties Duo size 1 covers fit under the umbilical cord stump on nb?

I have two of them and I'd like to get more, but I want to make sure they won't rub on the umb. cord stump first.

Thanks!

I used the duo wrap from birth with my son. They fit pretty well. Occasionally it would rub but apparently not enough to even slightly stain the cover. Would I use them again on a newborn? Yep!

It went way over DS's cord. He was 7.12 at birth, 19 1/4", and went down to 7.8. Seems to have rise on the short side, but still, it wasn't even close. I folded down to the aplix strip and it still rubbed against the bottom of his cord stump.

I didn't like the way they fit on my little guy until after he was out of xs thirsties covers. It rubbed his cord. XS thirsties covers fit way better on my guy, but all babies are different! HTH. BTW, my little guy was 7 lbs. 14 oz and 20 inches at birth.

My kids have really sensitive cord stumps it seems, so I wasn't planning on using duos for #5 until a week.or two. I found that wool soakers were my favorite when they were teeny and had cord stumps because I could pin down the front.

uh oh, since people said they get smaller than the Thirsties XS, I assumed they would fit under the stump!

So what PUL covers do y'all like for newborns? (sorry to hijack!)

I didn't like them with my LO until her stump fell off. They irritated it. She was 7 lbs., 3 oz. at birth.

They fit my DS wonderfully. I used them at the hospital. They went under his stump. He was 8lb7oz though
