Anyone feel free to add your photos of your favorite folds and tips to help out prefold newbies!

The Newspaper Fold:


Lay your prefold out flat and fold up the front about 1 1/2-2 inches





Fold in the sides and pull up tight between legs





Snappi or pin



Reverse Newspaper Fold:

Lay out prefold under baby and fold sides in.



Pull up tight between legs



Fan out towards the front, pull back wings around tight, snappi or pin





Bikini Twist Fold:


Lay prefold under baby and twist front



Pull up between legs, Fold down rise, snappi or pin (Not a good fold for my short rise DD)





Jelly Roll Fold:


Fold down the back 1 1/2-2 inches



Slightly fold in the sides and roll





Tightly pull up between legs, fold rise down





Snappi/pin



Angel Wing Fold:

Lay prefold out under baby. Fold in sides.





Pull up tightly between legs, fold down rise, snappi/pin





Add a cover and you're all set!



Again, I apologize that the folds are not entirely neat, She was twisting like crazy today! But it should still help.
your baby is supper cute.

Good post
Glad it has been bumped back up to the current page. It would be great if it was kept there, as many people requested.
