Lately everytime I put one on my Little guy I wonder if they would work with a twist. So going to try this next diaper change.

I like to fold the back down instead of the front. Mine isn't walking yet though.

The tag doesn't bother my little guy at all when worn inside out. He has really sensitive skin too.

Re: please HELP me love my MEOS!!

The twist is working awesome on my 18lb chunk. Found the MEOS love again for awhile which is good since they make up a huge part of my stash. Funny how you can love one thing for awhile and hate it when they grow a little.

My love waivers between pockets, MEOS, ME Sandies, my homemade flannel RRP, now I just discovered I love how M gdiapers fit my DS. I had tried them before and hated them.

Re: please HELP me love my MEOS!!

I'm a little confused about the twisting it like a prefold. Can someone explain or post a pic please?

Re: please HELP me love my MEOS!!

What a great idea! Would this help droopy bum? My stash is pretty much just MEOS and my son always get's droopy bum, I wonder if this fold would help?

Re: please HELP me love my MEOS!!

I fold down the back and the front to keep from getting droopy bum. I use the snaps that are on the inside when you fold down and ours stays folded fine. One dd has a bigger waist, so on one side just one snap is snapped, not both. I prefer to go coverless. Do those of you that do use them coverless use liners inside? Since we fold the front and back down, I can't use the snap in liners so I'm afraid to try coverless....

I just twist like prefold and position over private areas, then snap. The snap area now has wrong side up. If I can figure out how to post a picture, I'll try and next change and use a colored MEOS so you can see better.

Here is my first attemp to add photos ever.

Pic of MEOS under my LOs bum.


Pic of MEOS twisted. Thought it would be easier to see with colored diaper since the inner is white.


Pic of how I have been normally snapping with twist but still a little lose in the bum. Tried it turned down in back but didn't like it. So I had the idea of turning front down too and here is what I got.

I really like how trim it seems and narrow between legs. Gives extra layers in boy area.
Hope this helped some

Re: please HELP me love my MEOS!!

well that is just brilliant! They fit both my chunker kids just fine as is, but that would have been helpful when they were a bit smaller! Looove our MEOS, who knew they were so versatile!
