Talking How I pad fold a flat with pics!

This is how I pad fold my flats, it works great!

Start with the flat folded in half


Fold the bottom up half way


Now fold the top down half way


Fold the flat to your desired length


Flip it over so the smooth side is up (no seams against the babys bum)


Put in cover and I like to fan out the back a bit for extra poop protection


Put cover on baby!


nice and trim!

NIce!

Thanks for sharing! I love how many different ways there seem to be to padfold a flat. YOu just wouldn't think there would be.

I'm going to try that way and see how it works for us. One thing I like about it is you can adjust the length at the end instead of having to figure out rise in the middle of the fold.
