bifold VS trifold
 
I use diaper safari trifold inserts inside diaper safari/diaper junction covers. Ive always trifolded the inserts which works well. However it gives a bit of a bulky look and sometimes the inserts shift and the PUL from the cover is exposed more and can sometimes cause some irritation.
SO last night as I was folding her just wash diapers and assembling some into the covers as ready to go ones I got an idea.. I instead of trifolding I bifolded just folded in half and layed into the cover. It gave total coverage over the inner PUL and a thinner profile. I worried about it being bulkier between the legs on my baby but I found it easier to snap up and while Maggie has been telling me recently her diapers are "too big" as I think go a bit used to the disposables we used when treating her yeast, she tells me these feel soft and make her happy. :thumbsup:

Cool! I have done that with flats pf's and econobums. I am not a big fan of exposed PUL for the irritation factor either. Less bunching when wet between the legs too when its folded wider.

These seem like different inserts, but seem similar to what this reviewer did.
