Fav Flat Folds for Newborns
 
What are your favorite flat folds for newborns? I like trim, but obviously containing blowouts is a priority :) I used to use and origami fold on my older dd but never used flats on her when she was a newborn. I'd love pics of flats with different folds on newborns too. I'm expecting tiny ones (~5lbers).
TIA

I didn't start using flats on my baby until she was 6 weeks old, so not a newborn but still a little baby. I use the osocozy unbleached flats.

Here she is at 6 weeks old in a snappied origami fold. This was my first time using the flat on her so please excuse the messy folding.

Here she is at 8 weeks with a kite fold. I LOVE this fold. It is super trim, but has enough layers upfront to absorb the pee.

I used orgami and jellyrolled the sides.

May try kite fold also this time. Mostly used that as baby gets older. I couldn't get it small enough but I will give it a go

Thanks for that pics, that kite fold looks AMAZING! I don't expect to use the flats on them until they are 8-10 lbs or so, but with two babies, I may end up using them sooner as backup diapers :)

I've been using the mini kite fold on my little guy since he was 4 weeks old. It's perfect for his skinny thighs. It's posted on a thread here somewhere with pics.

My son is 3 weeks old and 9 1/2 lbs - the cover used is a Thirsties XS.

Lay flat out

Fold all four corners to the center

Fold the left and right side in
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...ikitefold3.jpg

Fold the top down completely
http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...ikitefold4.jpg

Fold the top down just a few inches (this helps to make a little pocket so poo doesn't go up and out the back during a blowout, and also gives stability to the tabs)

Place baby down and fold the front in (I find that folding it in until the point touches baby's bum makes the perfect rise!)

Jelly roll the legs

Lift up the front, fold in the tabs and snappi or pin!
