Newborn covers with umbilical snap down

Hi all! So, I've purchased a few newborn fitteds with snap-downs for the umbilical stump. Now I need some covers to go with them, and would like to get a few that also have the snap down option. I'm not interested in wool, just PUL or TPU covers. Any favorites or recommendations?

Thanks!

I like thirsties. They have size newborn and size extra small which both have snap downs

Rumparooz Newborn covers were a fave of mine for H's stash.

I bought some Thirsties newborn covers but did not like the new Thirsties aplix. It folded in and irritated her belly.

I'd second the newborn RAR. I don't remember if it had a scoop but DD at 8lbs started wearing them mid rise so you could always snap the middle snap lower if you need too.

Re: Newborn covers with umbilical snap down

Thanks for the suggestions! I'd like to try either the Thirsties newborn or XS covers. I'm not sure if the Newborn size will be too snug over a KL0 fitted. They're on sale at Nicki's with free shipping, so I guess I could try both...

Re: Newborn covers with umbilical snap down

Thirsties xs and duo 1 have a dip or cutout for the cord, but does not snap down. I was able to use both on my 7#14oz newborn from birth, over newborn prefolds.

I debated for the entire third trimester, getting some thirsties newborn covers too, but im glad I didn't. He grew so fast they would have lasted 2 weeks tops.

My xs covers are OLD... As in I bought then used for my now six year old son, when I was pregnant with him. I've used them on three babies and they are still fine. I bought a few new duo 1s fot this new baby. Ill keep the xs since I have them, but if I were buying, I would just buy duo 1s. They still fit at two months, almost 14 lbs, over yellow edge prefolds.

Also... You can always buy NB size if baby comes tiny. Shipping from Nickie's is really fast. That was my plan.

Re: Newborn covers with umbilical snap down

I think if you get snaps instead of hook and loop they do have a snap down. I'm pretty sure most of mine snap down and a few have the dips. I'll check them after a quick nap 😉

Oops. I'm wrong. My size nb, xs, and 1 all have the dip; none have a snap down. My thirsties nb aios have the snap down. Sorry!

Re: Newborn covers with umbilical snap down

Regardless, I did not have any of these come close to hitting the cord on LO, but I don't know if that's because of LO's torso length or not. I'd feel safe using any of those on a nb. Don't forget thirsties outlet, too! You can get covers pretty cheap there if you don't care about color or design

Re: Newborn covers with umbilical snap down

Thanks Elchorrito! That's really helpful! Did you CD from birth or wait a couple of weeks?

Did you think it's worth it to start with the Newborn size, or do you recommend going straight to the XS or Duo 1? It's tough since I have no clue how big my little guy will be until it's too late!
