Does anyone else do this? (prefold related)

Ok, i have been doing something for a while now and i am starting to wonder if anyone else does it. I have been folding an infant(green stitching) chinese prefold into a regular(or premium) chinese prefold and covering with wool. The thing that is different is that i am folding the infant prefold the "wrong way/against the grain(so to speak)". My baby is a girl so this puts the layers in the middle where she needs them the most. I am adding a picture. Does anyone else do this? We find that it works so well for us.

Here is what it looks like. (password is "ashna" if one is needed )



And just because i am a mom

Yup, I think I've seen that done before. Definitely makes sense for a girl!

I never thought of doing that! I think I'll have to try that tonight. My DD actually soaked through her pf last night and I was thinking of how to double up. Thanks mama for the great idea!

My DH does this. Actually, I think he shoves an infant prefold into any diaper he can!

Yup, I've done that, especially for night-time. It's the perfect amount, I think! Makes for one large, sleepy butt, though.
