Flat fold cheat sheet

Has anyone ever seen a list with pictures of all the ways to fold a flat? I will be using flats when traveling this summer/fall and will mainly use a padfold but I would like to be able to use other folds if necessary (I.e. if my son has stomach issues). I won't always have Internet access so something that I can print off would be easiest. Thank you!

I haven't specifically seen it, but my first stop is always Dirty Diaper Laundry. If she doesn't have, shoot her an email and I'm sure she would come up with one in an upcoming post.

If all else fails, make your own? I write down the steps of any new fold I'm trying to keep next to me when I'm folding flats. Works fine and I can keep the paper for future reference.

Padded Tush Stats has a flat fold table, but it only links to videos. I've been thinking of making my own picture one with the folds I like. Maybe I need to get on that.

I would try a few without baby and see which ones you can figure out and might want to do. then maybe try and baby and see which ones work.

You could probably work it down to 2 or 3 to bring with you.

thanks for posting this. I've been thinking about getting flats for traveling/camping for #2 rather than use disposable inserts and it's great to know... I'm also getting my first 4 flats this sunday and I'll want to try and fold them even without a baby.

This is Dirty Diaper Laundry's page from this years flat challenge. If you scroll down she has links for a few folds. There are videos as well as pictures. This is my go to spot if I want to try a new fold.
