Prefolds Made Easy (picture tutorial)

well, this is the ONLY way I can get a prefold on either of my kids. I guess different folds work for different parents/kids. I hope if you are like me, and none of the tradition folds worked, this will work for you.

I call this the no-fold prefold technique lol.

Step 1:
Lay prefold flat, and have pin/pins or snappi ready!

Step 2:
put baby down on prefold. I prefer to put baby down on belly since she's just gonna try to roll over run away anyway, but you can put baby on the prefold the traditional way as well and this fold will work just as fine.

Step 3:
Fold Up over the bum.
(example one: im taking this picture myself and you can see she is already trying to take off!)

Step 4:
Tuck top corners under baby.

Step 5:
Pull bottom corners over, and hold in place and get your snappi or pin/pins:

AT THIS POINT LOOKS LIKE SHORTS... ONCE WE TUCK THE "LEGS" IN WE WILL GET ADDED ABSORBANCY WHERE WE NEED IT, AND IT WILL LOOK LIKE A DIAPER. HOWEVER, SOMETIMES I JUST LEAVE THEM LIKE SHORTS AND PUT THEM UNDER WOOL IF IM LAZY. OR LET THEM GO COVERLESS THIS WAY.

Step 6:
tuck in legs, all around the sides!

note from me:
im sure this is a lot like other folds final results, but i have tried EVERY fold, and for whatever reason, this is the only one i can get to stay in place right, fit this snug, and not end up with the snappi/pin handing on the "hinges" to hold the diaper in place.
