TUTORIAL How I get an infant prefold on my 2 year old~PIC HEAVY~
 
well almost 2 Year old.

I laid a tissue on her but I still thought it showed too much so I censored them a little more but you get the point

Lay prefold flat

Fold front sides together up to just under rear

Pull up bw legs

Fan out the front to make another set of wings

Pull tight(notice how it pinches up too look TOO tight if you are doing it right but when you put the pin in and move your hand out from under the diaper it is perfect)

Pin

Thanks for doing that! I am a PF dummy but lately been trying to get the hang of them. Most of the ones we got so far are too big length wise yet they seem like the sides arent wide enough to connect in the front. My dd is a few mos younger than yours and a skinny minnie- what is your dd's waist measurement? She's just adorable :)

Thanks for posting this! I was wondering how pp were still using infants on an older child. Do you think you still can do it with a double in there?

Absolutely! Here's one with a hemp doubler in it. A little more bulk but she was getting ready for a nap

Her waist measurements are 18-19 inches but her hips are 22" LOL

Now I need to get some pins. I was wondering what to do with my infant pfs. I was going to trifold in covers, but that's not working for us.

That's how I pin too! I have had breastfed poop explosions leak out with that fold, but I think it was going to come out no matter what! :giggle:

I like my pins so much more than my snappi (though I'm one of the weirdos that think snappis are cute too)! :thumbsup:

My almost 3 year old is so skinny i can get her into infants easier than I can get her 3 month old sister in infants. :giggle:

Yes Grace outgrew the infants at about 6-8 months old until she slimmed back down :lostit:

Nice! That's how I do it with my 20 month old, too. :mrgreen: I don't use pins or snappi though, just a side snapping cover.

We used to have that couch, too!
