Re: Flats Picture Thread

Okay My own quick Tutorial. I'm using an IKEA flat and a snappi.

First Take the Flat and lay it out in front of you with a point facing you.
then Fold the top point down toward the center and the bottom point up toward the center.


Next line up edge A with Edge B on both sides.



Now your going to fold the top down to make the poop Catcher. (We don't really use it as DD is eating more solids so I do it more to change the rise of the diaper)


That's where most Neat folds stop but I have way to much fabric for my Skinny Minnie and can't get it to fit well with her legs.

Now you fold the side in again.


Then flip the little "ears" out. (Cute. It looks Like a Puppy! Or is that a cow. LOL!)



I WAS going to use a Teddy but my Daughter walked in and told me she's Wet and wanted a change. (Perfect timing)
I roll in the sides kind of like a Jelly roll before lifting the front



It's not a great Fit.. she thought I was taking to long while taking Pics. But you get the idea!


And other Pics of a better fit durring her nap earlier today and one other change.

Re: Flats Picture Thread

Wow thanks for the great and detailed tutorial. I am looking forward to trying this out tommorow because I always have trouble with the neat fold as well. The alterations you made to this reminds me of the alteration made to the kite fold that makes it work so well for us.

This looks like it might actually work for us! (we have trouble with the legs in the neat fold as well)

Thanks for posting!

Re: Flats Picture Thread

Bumping this back up to say:

I LOVE this neat fold modification! We have been using it all day so far. She had an explosive poo and only a teensy bit got on the cover and I think that was from me not realizing what kind of diaper she had and pulling the cover down too carelessly. It doesn't come loose from the snappi and it is SO easy to put on. It is so tight around the legs and it doesn't require a lot of tweaking.

This fold is PERFECT for my somewhat skinny legged DD. I loved the kite fold modified but it kept coming loose from the snappi. This stays tight after hours of wear. This has made the neat fold actually work for us!

Thanks again for posting.
