Flat diapers are the most versatile diapers around. Not only can you fold them up for diapers but you can use them for a million other things as well. Do not be intimidated by folding them. You can fold them a number of ways.
The prefold fold: Just fold in quarters so you have a prefold sized material that you can use as you would any prefold diaper (newspaper fold, angel fold....) An added doubler is a good idea for most babes.
The Origami fold: This sure sounds complicated but it is not. The great thing about this fold is that it creates a built in doubler in the center panel.
Start with your square flat and fold into quarters like this:
Then grab the upper right corner and pull to the left like this:
Until you have made a triangle like this:
Then grab both upper corners like this:
And flip the whole thing over like this:
Then start folding in the left hand side like this:
Until you get this:
Then place the baby on the diaper, fold the front up and the corners in like this:
Notice the great poo catching pocket that is forming in the back... Now bring the wings forward like this:
And fasten with pins or Snappi!
