how to fold econobum?

How do you fold your econobum? We are on the second setting of snaps and trifolded either way doesn't work to well. DS has it on snappied with the extra folded down. Any other ways?

Re: how to fold econobum?

so you don't have it trifolded? what exactly is not working about the fold you're using? i've never used an econobum pf, but when we snappi a prefold on under one of the covers i have to jelly roll the legs in or i get prefold sticking out. i imagine a bikini twist may work as well.

Interesting, We use our Econobum trifolded the short long way on the second set of snaps and it works great. But yes a bikini twist might work. I saw someone on here posted that they use the bikini twist with their Econobum PF but dont snappi it in place, just let the cover hold it.

Let me see if I can find that...

eta found it. I remember that post in particular because I thought it was such a cool idea.

It seems to be too short the on the small 'setting' and too long on the 'large'.

yeah exactly!

when i fold it the short way its too short and the snaps leave a mark on his belly and the long way is way to long.

just curious as to how others make it work on the second setting.

Re: how to fold econobum?

Are they longer than a flip insert? I use those folded the long way on the second setting and I think it's perfect.

They are a bit longer than the Flip organics.
I have been folding the econobum the long way and fanning it in the front, that helps with some of the extra that would be sticking out of the front. I think they need to tweak that PF a bit. I love the softness and absorbency, though.

Bumping this to say that I discovered today that folding the Econobum PF the long way and fanning out the back a bit makes it fit perfectly on the second set of snaps.

My 1 year old needs it bikini twisted to make it work on the second set of snaps. Works like a charm this way!!

That is a good idea too!

I was also suprised to discover that my Econobum PF is the exact same length as my GMD unbleached Reds, just not as wide.

Which makes their sizing make sense then I guess since Reds are made to be used on the medium and large settings of covers.
