Re: What fold do you use for PF's? Snappi or Pins

I use the bikini twist during the day. It took some practice but I can get it so snug I told DH to take a picture because it was art..lol. At night we use the newspaper fold with a liner. I use snappis most of the time but do have pins if needed.

My MIL gave me a great trick with pins that helps them slid easily through the fabric. Instead of soap you rub the pin on your hairline. Just make sure to rub with the pin sideways so you don't stab your head (yes that is from experience)

Newspaper fold with Snappi for my boy! I loved the bikini twist when my daughter was CD'd, but it doesn't work well on my son.

Trifolded and laid in a cover. That's all we have time for with 2 one-year-olds! lol I just put 'em all together when I'm folding diaper laundry, then they are easy peasy to stuff the munchkins into!

Mostly pins when I use them, but we have some snappis too.

Bikini twist is all that will work on my chunky thighed DD. We get a snug fit with a snappi. Either she goes coverless or with a wool cover.

I mostly use the angel wing fold, sometimes the newspaper fold. I use snappi's most of the time, but if I can't find one, I have no problem with pins. Before Eliana was born, I used (almost exclusively) the angel wing fold with pins on Torrin.
