Photo Tutorial of a Simple Flat Fold *Very Pic Heavy*
 
Ok... Last tutorial of the day because dd is getting tired. She's such a good baby. This is not my favorite fold because it's not as trim as the origami, but it's very, very easy to do.

Start with your flat in one big square.

Bring two of the edges together with the tips like this.

Bring the other two edges together

Your flat will look like this when it is finished with the fold.

Now to put diaper on baby :lostit:

Place baby on center of diaper

For smaller babies you will need to fold up the section at the bottom. This is a great fold for boy babies or tummy sleepers since all the excess material is where it needs to be.

Fold edges under the baby's booty like you would do with a prefold thus creating leg sleeves.

This is what diaper will look like when you're ready to fold up tummy panel and snappi or pin.

Bring up wings to get ready to pin or snappi

I always roll in the legs of this fold for better poop containment

And here's a pic of the exhausted model after all of today's photo tutorials :giggle:

ROFL - you're up next - i'm SO done you can stick a fork in me - dd's like mooooooooooooom enough already! besides those are the only two flat folds that i know of - i just know that a lot of people have been asking flats questions lately and i was hoping to help them out - i could only find ONE flat tutorial when i was desperately searching when i got my flats a few weeks ago - so hopefully this will help some newbies out

hey srsly - 1 dozen LL flats are just 18 and some change with shipping included - it's totally worth it - where else can you get a dozen diapers brand new for under $20?

sell ONE good pocket diaper and you have a dozen diapers or ONE good fitted and you have a dozen flats - can't beat that with a stick!
