Flats users, another question...please help!

How do you keep flats from bunching up in the crotch and getting poop on the cover? I have been experimenting and failing... I use pad fold, angel wing fold, origami fold. Any time LO pees and poops the pee area bunches up and poop gets on cover.

A doubler might help to make that area thicker. When its so thin its easy to bunch up. It will bunch up with padfolding no matter what you do though. Or you could try doubling your flats, i find that really bulky though.
Also, my favorite fold is the kite fold jelly rolled. That seems to maintain a good bulk through the crotch. But, using a doubler definitely helps.

This. We do the kite fold jelly rolled. When you go to pull the wings tight, make sure LO's leg is flat. It makes for a tight fit around the legs.

Origami fold with a fleece liner? That seems to do the trick for us...

Re: Flats users, another question...please help!

We kite fold and fasten with boingos side snap style. If I fasten up front and not at the hips, bunching is a lot more likely.

Yay! Glad it is helping! Also I forgot to mention that I also do the side snapping boingo style. It makes SUCH a difference! Love it.
