Re: Do your prefolds fit trifolded?

I trifold mine in the wrong direction too, otherwise I was having the same problem you are. My prefolds were too long and bulky. I wish I wouldn't have bought so many in the size that I did.

My favorite cover to trifold in is probably my Fluffy's Diaper covers or my Thristies Duo. The Fluffy's is my favorite I think because of the prints and such but also the fit is great.

That's what I did. Trifold the wrong way and they are a little wider then but they fit just fine

I tried it and it fits so much better length wise! She was a little perturbed by the extra cloth but she quickly forgot about it. thanks Ladies!

Re: Do your prefolds fit trifolded?

And here I thought I was just an idiot who was destined to use FBs forever because I couldn't make a prefold and a cover work! I have tried to use the Large Bummis organic prefolds on my 23 pound 5.5 month old son and if he didn't look like a sumo wrestler BEFORE the cloth dipe, he sure did after! They are soooooo bulky because I have to fold down the extra length and the diaper sticks out 4 inches from his tummy!

Just my luck, he is napping now so I can't rush upstairs to try to fold them the "wrong" way!
