Prefold/cover mamas?

Mama could you do me a big favor and show me how you fold your prefolds, and lay inside a cover, if possible even a pic of you boy with a prefold/cover on? I try every which way I have seen pics on sites,etc and with my son there seems to be a big gap out the front/top. And I really want to know what Im doing wrong as I have a bunch of prefolds to sell if they are not going to work for us
Thanks
LuAnn

I was just getting ready to get up a change a diaper......this helped with the decision of 'what to put on baby?' lol Sometimes it's worse than trying to pick out clothes for myself! I will post a pic in about 5 minutes.

I don't have the cord to my camera right now but I lay the prefold into the over open the back flaps, lay baby down cover his front and open the front flaps then clse the cover. Anything that sticks out I tuck in....probably not the "right" way but it works for us.

Wink Re: Prefold/cover mamas?

Okay...here he is in a snappi'd PF with wool cover.


And here he is with a PF laying in a BSWW.


And to put a face to the bum! lol


I prefer the snappi'd PF since it helps to make it more trim and I think it stays put better. But I use both pretty regularly. HTH!!

Re: Prefold/cover mamas?

Oh and I just trifold the PF if I lay it in the cover.....if it has the little 'pocket' in front of the cover to stuff the PF into I use it to help hold the PF in place.

Sorry they aren't working for you! Are you getting the cover tight enough? I know when Harley wiggles too much and I can't get it tight enough I have a gap.

What size are your PFs....I use premium IPFs.

I was told regular (I got them from someone here where I live, so I didnt pay shipping, they were used. I get the cover as tight as I can without leavnign marks on my baby (he has some thighs) so I have to watch it there. I will put on on him later and take a pic and show, than you can tell me what Im doing wrong,
Thanks

I snappi mine also. I tried to lay in the cover and did't like it at all. They were to bulky. Hereis a couple of pictures for you.
