Prefold tutorial with pics!! ALL FOLDS
 
Maybe we can make this a sticky. Ok, a lot of mama's keep requesting to see prefold tutorials on all the different folds. I did every fold I know of with the exception of the side fold for side sleepers. My DD was VERY wiggly :giggle: today so the folds are not entirely crisp and tight but it's to give you the basic fold so you can follow.

Anyone feel free to add your photos of your favorite folds and tips to help out prefold newbies!

The Newspaper Fold:


Lay your prefold out flat and fold up the front about 1 1/2-2 inches

Fold in the sides and pull up tight between legs

Snappi or pin

Again, I apologize that the folds are not entirely neat, She was twisting like crazy today! :giggle: But it should still help.

Thanks for sharing. I don't have any pics right now, but the Diva fold, snappi in the back is my favorite right now.

I knew I forgot something! :giggle2:

Thanks for the info! My prefolds are in the mail on their way to me, and it'll be good to have a picture tutorial to go by!

This is awesome! Thanks so much for sharing this! I use fitteds and covers, but I'm trying hard to find the prefold love because it would be so much less expensive. I will try some of these out on DS:thumbsup:
