My first go at flats and prefolds!!

I started out with all these expensive pockets and AI2s.... just to realize flats and prefolds are so much more fun! I had to share pics of my first go at them! How did I do???

My little model, Greyson, is 13 weeks old and 12 lbs BTW.

This is a diaper rite prefold. I think he likes it

Next is a diaper rite flat using the origami fold.

Lastly is a receiving blanket flat using the kite fold.

This is much more fun than snapping on a pocket IMO!

Awesome! You are a pro
Handsome little model
I spent a fortune then ended up with flats... My husband thinks I am crazy!!
I find my Son pees through them too fast though so use a doubler in the wet zone. Love my new squishy bamboo ones

Looks great!! Thanks for sharing some pics! I recently decided that I want to give some flats a go this time around (due in August, already have a bunch of prefolds), but I haven't decided what kind yet. They look so trim!!

I did the same thing! Now I rarely use my pockets except if we are going to be out most of the day. It's still a little easier to use those for my 2yo when out and about for a long day!

Cutie model in your pics too!

I can do prefolds okay (and actually am quite fond of them), but I cannot get flats on tight enough! I don't know what I do wrong. Your folds look great!

I pull up and out on the wings and it makes it a lot tighter! I can show you if we ever get around to a play date he's been super fussy lately so I haven't been getting out much!

Oh he is too stinking cute almost, just almost, makes me a little bit baby hungry.

Great job! Prefolds and flats are a lot of fun.

great job! My first attempts at pinning certainly looked nothing like that.
