Which is the best way to fold a CPF for inside wool shorties? He's not in danger of pooping this afternoon so I wanted to try it out for the 1st time!

HELP!

Thanks!

I haven't done prefolds for a while now, what kind of cover are you planning to use? That makes a difference in the folding. I usually would lay it the long way and fold the 4ply sides into the 6/8ply center. Then lay it in the wrap, fold the front down and fasten the wrap. I hope that was explained okay. This will bump the post for you, and maybe someone else can give better advice

I do the angel wing fold, pinned. Then I put him in wool shorties/soaker/etc.

I do the bikini twist--it is most comfortable between his legs, and I snappi.

The angel wing fold or jelly roll fold pinned is a good fit I think. We only have 1 wool pull-on right now and those folds work best in keeping poo off his wool. HTH!

Didn't get your replies in time...how did I do? I guess it's the angel wing fold:




I guess we'll see in a couple of hours or so....

Just a note. You need to pull your snappi down further so it's a Y shape instead of a T. But great folding mama! *thumbs up*
