What`s your favorite flat fold???

After watching youtube-videos on the kite and origami fold I thought I knew it all. BUT THEN I came across this site: http://www.thenappylady.co.uk/articl...p?categoryID=6 with more than 20 folding techniques! Feeling slighty overwhelmed

Has anybody tried these? What works best for you and why?

I love the "poo catcher" fold. I actualy started doing that with my prefolds "on accident" when I first used them. I was folding the back down bc my prefolds were too long, then pad-folding them and then fanning out the back bc I didn't want any PUL touching baby's bum.

It's funny to see that it's actually a fold!

The Jo fold looks genius for using large flats on a newborn!

Lol - I love that name: The poo catcher fold
Looks pretty good, will try it out tomorrow. I haven`t had any issues though with poop coming out of the back yet...
The Gaynor`s fold looks good too.

I used flats in summer and I really loved the diaper bag fold (because of all the layers in the wet zone) even without snappis. But when I was too lazy or tried to have other people to fold flats, I just fold them in 4 and then in 3 lengthwise (I guess it's a pad folded flat?) I guess that's my favorite. As far as poo leaking I haven't had any issues (baby didn't have runny poo and I used double gusseted covers).

I don't know very many. The kite fold is my favorite currently.

Jo fold is hands down my favourite. I use it all the time. Lots of layers in the wetzone, super trim. Love it.

Kite fold also works really well for us too. I like how you can totally customize the rise and the wet zone.
