Best prefold folds

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What are your favorite ways to fold a prefold? In terms of gender? Baby's build (skinny/chunky)? Absorbency? Bulk/fit?

We pretty much only used the "bikini twist" with dd, with a snappi, but I'm interested to hear the pros and cons of other approaches.

I have a baby girl and we use the angel wing fold with a snappi.  It works pretty well for us!

Love the jelly roll! Keeps the blowouts in better than other folding methods we'ved tried.

We've always used the angel wing fold with snappi for DD (now 2 years old) No leaks or blowouts!

Angel wing with Snappi here too.  I sometimes use bikini twist when sizing up to the next prefold bc it puts the extra between the legs and is trimmer than folding down in front, but I find it occasionally creates tiny leg leaks - almost like it funnels pee around the twist and shoots it out the legs. :)

I did angel wing for the first few months with DS, but then it wound up no longer containing poo, so we switched to jelly roll.  I've used bikini twist a few times, but it just didn't work too well for us.  The main problem with any but angel wing for us though was that I pretty much needed to add a doubler to them because he could pee so much so fast that it would just spray right through the PF, right through the wool cover and onto the floor.
