Roo's took 11days. He was the biggest and his took the longest of all 3. We used bg sized aio so i just folded the front in a bit to avoid it.

DD was about 3 or 4 days I think - we were told not to bath her until it came off so I was pleased when it did as I was looking forward to bathing her. I have bought lots of Kissaluvs this time as they all have the snaps, although when I put wool over the top that's still going to cover it so I'm not sure it'll make much difference. I am hoping to use cord ties rather than a clamp this time though, I found the whole thing totally gross last time and hated touching it to clean round it :puke:

That could be it...big baby...big stump. It's not smelly or anything so I'm sure it's fine :D

Jack and evies were within a week and they were 7lbs 5 and 7lb 7 Catrins took 2 weeks and she was 9lbs 10, we ended using sposies with Catrin until it fell off, as although we managed to fold the bimbles under it all the wraps rubbed and made it sore :( with Evie we found the best combo was folded down bimbles with a wool soaker over it, as the wool wad breathable it stopped it going soggy
