Re: Flats Picture Thread

How do you avoid the wide "crotch" area?

Can you?

That would be AWESOME as I was wondering the same thing. Planning on using Flats and PFs for the newb and that is one great fit!

Re: Flats Picture Thread

I just prepped my flats this week but I have been struggling with folds. This is exactly what I needed. Thanks!

Thanks for taking the time to shoot this tutorial and load it for us. I am going to try this as soon as my LL flats get here (I caved and bought some just for kicks ). These might be the perfect simple diaper for the next little bit for us. Do you ever use these with a doubler or do you find them to be enough on their own? I have a moderate/light wetter most of the day. But I had the fear of leaks worked into me by my super-soaker firehose of a first child and I know these weren't nearly enough for him even doubled up.
