Arrow 2 Questions about AI2 and Prefolds

1. I just can't seem to put the prefolds on my dd. It seems like they are not wide enough to go around her tummy. Can anyone please give me some advice on how to fold a prefold. I have read numerous websites but they just don't seem to work! Does it keep in the bf poop if you just fold it into thirds? Also what is your favorite prefold for softness and absorbability (if that is even a word).

2. Does anyone know of a good absorbant WAHM AI2?

Please let me know if you can helo me out with either of these questions. Thanks mamas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 2 Questions about AI2 and Prefolds

I love LHC (Lucy's Hope Chest) AI2. The snap in liners are doubled, and stay in through the wash. I've never had a leak. Truth be told, I only have 1, my stash is uber-ful, and I still keep coming to look at FSOT board to see if I can get more. I think I'm going to break down & by some when dh isn't looking!

Re: 2 Questions about AI2 and Prefolds

I LOVE Angel Wraps AI2s.

As for prefolds, how old is your dc? You just have to try different folds and keep practicing. Folding in thirds worked fine before dd started crawling, and after that, the angel fold worked best for us. I've also tried the twist fold, too. I like Thirsties, though really all kinds have worked well for us.

Re: 2 Questions about AI2 and Prefolds

I am guessing that you're using infant size pfs? My ds outgrew them at 3 months because they would no longer go around his waist. Toward the end, I used a bikini twist and didn't fold the waist in at all--left the front and back completely fanned open to get every bit of girth possible. When we sized up, to regular and premium size pfs (I got a dozen of each), there was extra length but no problems with the waist. Like everything else that's too big, they quickly grow into it!

Re: 2 Questions about AI2 and Prefolds

i think the pf's are too small, when they started doing that it was time for my dd to move up. i'd get some regulars, the best fold for bf poops is the jelly fold

also for ai2's i loved lhc for my dd when she was smaller

Here's LHC -

The one I have is a solid pul (vs. print) and has held up amazingly well.
