Greenline covers and flats??

I just bought 3 greenline covers and I love them. I have mostly been putting them over GMD workhorse fitteds. I have tried a few times to pad fold a flat but the fit seems off and they move. Has anyone had any success with this? If so how did you do your pad fold? What else can I use in a greenline cover? Thanks ladies!

Re: Greenline covers and flats??

Flats were all we used with our Greenline covers - GMD medium flats or IKEA flats. We either padfolded (folded flat in half twice and then tri-folded that) or did a modified padfold to put more in front (boy )

That is where I am having my problem, in the front. Can you explain your modified fold? I need a little inspiration.

We used Thirsties hemp prefolds in our GL's and loved, loved, loved them! Never had any leaks and they were very trim! After trying so many different diapers and my son kept getting rashes, we found GL's and they were the answer to our problems. My son stopped having diaper rashes when we started using them. I'm sad to say we recently sold our whole stash of GL's because I thought my son was ready to start potty training. I miss them soooo much!!! I wish she made trainers So my whole stash could be GL's again! Natasha is very sweet and I truly loved purchasing from a wahm

Have you ever gone to the Greenline b/s/t Facebook page? There are some moms on there that always have good advice for someone needing a little help with GL's

I fold it in half once and then instead of folding it edge to edge again, I take one edge and bring it about an inch or two past the other (now bottom) edge. Then, I pull that top edge back to the original side so that it "doubles up" in the middle and only about an inch hangs off the end not doubled up. Then, I tri-fold that. Hopefully that makes sense... it's a little hard to explain with words
