My absolute favorite is the newspaper fold. You can fold it first, then put the baby on top of the diaper and pin (or snappi).

Here is a link to it: http://www.diaperpages.com/newspaper_fold.php
There are other folds at that site, as well.

Don't forget to check out the sticky at the top of this page on all of the different folds! :thumbsup:

Have fun with your prefolds! I promise, they get much, much easier as you go.

My fold is really simple and fast and easy. I'm sure it has a name, I just don't know it.

I didn't want to try to hide little boy bits so I used a stuffed bunny.

First I lay out the pf and fold down the top to shorten. You can fold down the front too, but I've found it to be too bulky on such a little guy.

Lay baby on the diaper and fold the sides into the center.

Pull up between legs and bring wings around to the front.

This is where coordination and practice comes in. Don't get frustrated, just keep trying if you have trouble at first coordinating it all on a wiggly baby.

Hook one end of the Snappi on while still holding the other wing snuggly in place.

Then hook the other side. Adjust tightness if necessary. Then pull the bottom hook down and attach (it's not hooked in the photo). Voila!

Then add a cover. This is my favorite, the Stacinator So Simple.

Hope that helps. There are many options. This is merely the one that works best and fast for us.

Karen I love your tutorial! That is so great! It needs to be added to the sticky, too!

Okaaay, um, I just clicked the link on the post above mine and didn't realize that it was pics of pretty much the exact same thing I posted just now. Oops! Sorry for reinventing the wheel on this one!

Just think-- how often do you get to see a bear AND a bunny diapered in one night? In the same thread?! Isn't that special. :)
