doubler in pf?

Okay, so I want to put a CB MF doubler in my prefold....how in the world do i do it? The only fold I can do well is the bikini twist and can somewhat do the angel fold. Is this possible?

if you are using a wrap or soaker you can lay the doubler on the outside of the prefold or the inside of the soaker/wrap and go like that. The other way I do it is with the newspaper fold. lay the doubler on the prefold, then tri fold over the doubler. HTH.

You don't want the microfiber to be next to the baby's skin.

I have put a microfiber doubler in my prefolds before, but I put a fleece layer on top next to my baby's skin.

you could also layer a smaller prefold in as a doubler.

Then I'd just sit it behind the baby's bum, pull it forward between his legs, and then fold the prefold however you normally do.

So I can do a bikini twist and not have to worry about the doubler not twisting with the prefold?

reverse angel wing works well with a doubler. That's the fold we use the entire day with a doubler laid in.

Gahhh...I'm just not getting it

If I just lay the doubler on top of the prefold how will it get snug to the legs? For example, with the bikini twist...I can just see it sitting on top coming out of the sides of the twist.
