I'm new to cloth diapering and i have a bunch of flat diapers, but no idea how to fold them and put around baby so that his blowouts are contained. Thankfully we haven't had too many blowouts, but I'm also trying to find a fold that will put most of the absorbency in the front where he needs it. I do best when I can see how they are being folded. I really want to stop using disposables so much.

I use the origami fold or newborn kite fold and roll the legs before I snappi or pin. A good cover with leg gussets should contain any blowouts,
