trying out a new fold - what do you think?

I was playing around and came up with this. Never seen it before, but I don't know much about folding pf's. It's a variation on the bikini twist. Dd is in it now...we'll see how it goes!

First I folded the sides in



Then I turned it over and folded over the end to shorten the rise



Laid the Build-A-Bear on top



Then I twisted it once through the legs as I pulled it up and Snappi'd



The back



It's super trim through the legs and nice and flat on the front. Also I didn't have to fold down the front like I usually do to make the rise fit. I like this although I may be making the uncomplicated prefold more complicated than necessary!!

Looks like the bikini twist that you lost the "poo holder in folds" to the outside.

I do something sorta similar in that I fold the excess down in back. I like your idea of folding in the sides some, though, and could see where that would make the twist area more trim. I'll have to try that soon.

Here's a pic of my now 2 1/2yo when she was about 1 in a bikini twist.

yea, I think I lost the pocket in the back and gained one in the front - exactly where I don't need it!
