Very cool. Though I think my little chunker wouldn't fit in an infant anymore. I'll have to check! I'm not sure it would be absorbent enough either. Hmmm.... now I'm curious! I'm trying to clear out prefolds that I don't need, so maybe I can get rid of even more!

Can you still do it?

I could put infants on my daughter till she pl'd... I could probably put one on her NOW

Thus, I'm always kind of shocked when someone says they can't get reds or yellows on their 6 month old.

I could until she PL'd but she's been PL'd for about 8 months so I haven't tried

Ya, same here about the explosions. I couldn't take it anymore so I started EC and no more explosions plus rarely a poopey diaper at all

WOW! I'm impressed and was going to get rid of my infant prefold soon, but will save them for sure and get some pins. I guess this doesn't work with a snappi?!? I'm scared of pins, but will try them and have just been using snappis and have had success so far. Would love to keep using the infant prefolds a lot longer to save money!

Re: TUTORIAL How I get an infant prefold on my 2 year old~PIC HEAVY~

Wow! I have a huge baby then! I can hardly get Yellow edge prefolds to fit my 2 (almost 3) month old baby boy - but he is 18 lbs now LOL! The rise is just too short! I'm using them trifolded in a cover though.

The weird thing is that the yellow edge almost fit my 2 year old DD, but she potty trained at 18 months, so no need for them to fit her. I thought that these would work for along time! Oh well...

As for pins...I bought some and was so excited to use them, but they are so hard to get through the fabric that I'm to chicken to use them. I'm afraid that I will push too hard and either impale my fingers or worse, my baby! Any suggestions? Or is it just a learning curve?

You know, I JUST started using infants again on my HUGE 7 month old the other day and I LOVE them! They won't work with a snappi because she's too round but I prefer pins anyway. I love the fit and love that I don't have to fold down anywhere.
