Double Kite Fold for flats! Picture Tutorial

Hello Mama's! After using... and still using this fold for over half a year now, I can safely say that it's worth sharing as a keeper. I wasn't crazy about the kite fold at first, but I think that was because I had a hard time getting proficient at pinning on a flat nice and snug. It seemed like every new fold I tried was a new favorite at first, but then I would become frustrated by some downside and look for something different. I have heavy wetters, so this idea came to me as a way to get lots of layers in the wet zone, but only a couple layers around the waist (I hate pinning through lots of cloth).
Instead of putting the whole thing on here again, I will direct you to my tutorial... I hope it works as well for you!!!

Re: Double Kite Fold for flats! Picture Tutorial

Thanks! What a wonderful tutorial!

I am going to try this tomorrow when I see my lo again! Just received a bunch of flats in trades this week!

Any ideas what stage in folding you would stop and put these away on the shelf ready for use?

Have you tried this one? I love using it and it is in my favs for folds list. Ro po fold

Re: Double Kite Fold for flats! Picture Tutorial

Thanks, I'll have to try that! The Rosie Posie is my go-to fold right now because of the EBF poo containment in the legs, but I'm finding that now that she's bigger and I have to spread the middle layers out more to get enough wing, it's not giving enough coverage in the butt and poo is leaking through the single layer in the middle. My DD is also a heavy wetter so I'm hoping that this will work well!

Re: Double Kite Fold for flats! Picture Tutorial

If I fold them before putting them away (which I often don't do), I fold it completely ready for use, then fold it in half and stack. But usually I fold the diaper just before changing her.
I hope you love it too!

Thanks! I am going to try folding in half. I like getting them stuffed, lined and folded all ahead.
