Seriously, how do you do padfolded flats in covers and not get poop on cover?

So I got my grovias and thanks mamas who helped me with all my questions. I truly am grateful. Love the looks and fit. But definately will go through lots of covers this way. Which is not cheap.

But how how do you not get poop on the cover. The nb poop with almost every diaper, but also my 13 month old poop gets out too.

I just want it to be so easy.

Are prefolds better?

You can fan out the back for better coverage.

My 1 year old dd never gets poop on the cover but she has plop-able poop. I'm hoping this doesn't change because I would get quickly annoyed having to change the cover every time!

There is no way to 100% ensure that poo will not get on the cover when pad folding or trifolding. That's why I always pinned or snappied in the NB phase (when their poop is runnier and more frequent). If you pad fold just make sure you have more covers, like pp said.

I don't think I could do it with a newbie! My toddler is about 50/50 for getting poop on the cover, but she is "breastfed" too so we get some pretty mushy poos. I've only ever snappied prefolds on my tiny and had our first escping poo today lol. Thank goodness not a blow out

Yep. I think it's just one of those things you have to account for when pad/ tri folding in covers.

Ditto,

I still have to change the cover everytime my 13mo poos, but she's never been a big pooer lol only once a day so no biggie. Just have more covers and snappie in the newb phase

Ditto to all of this about the pad folding. You can try some different folds to see if they help contain. The jelly roll is a popular one, but I always used the kite fold. It's a little more involved on the front side, but I didn't mind it.
