Cloth Diapering with Prefolds

Cloth Diapering with Prefolds

Here’s how to diaper your baby using cloth diapers, specifically prefolds and Snappi’s.

What You Need:

About 18-20 Prefolds These do come in sizes and I recommend buying the newborn size for newborns as the larger size will be ill fitting and cause leakage.

A few Snappis
About 4-6 Diaper Cover

Directions:

Bikini Twist

1. Lay prefold down legthwise (vertically) and lay baby on his or her back onto the prefold. The prefold should be high enough so that his or her booty is covered…and then some.

2. Twist the prefold so that the opposite side is now right side up.

3. Bring twisted prefold up to baby’s belly.

4. Bring the back corners up to the front, over the top of the prefold in step 3. This should be a snug fit and the prefold should not flop loosely around baby’s waist.

5. Using a Snappi, secure both right and left side. Then using the bottom part of the Snappi, secure the center twisted part of the prefold.

6. Cover your diaper with cover of your choice.

Jellyroll

1. Lay prefold down legthwise (vertically) and lay baby on his or her back onto the prefold. The prefold should be high enough so that his or her booty is covered…and then some.

2. Roll sides in toward center.

3. Bring up through legs onto the baby’s belly.

4. Fold excess prefold underneath and wing out corners so that they are lying on the baby’s sides.

5. Bring the back corners up to the front, over the top of the prefold in step 4. This should be a snug fit and the prefold should not flop loosely around baby’s waist. Secure with Snappi and cover.

Newspaper Fold a.k.a. Angel Wing Fold

1. Lay prefold down legthwise (vertically) and lay baby on his or her back onto the prefold. The prefold should be high enough so that his or her booty is covered…and then some.

2. Fold prefold sides in so that the prefold resembles a “Y” shape.

3. Bring up through legs onto the baby’s belly. You will probably have to tuck excess prefold underneath itself.

4. Bring the back corners up to the front, over the top of the prefold in step 3. This should be a snug fit and the prefold should not flop loosely around baby’s waist.

5. Secure with Snappi and cover.
