When the twins were small, I liked the kite fold.  It's a little more difficult if your flat (or receiving blanket as I've been using) isn't perfectly square.  Now that we're incorporating flats again, I discovered another downside.  It's hard to get snug enough that an active toddling baby doesn't lose it somewhere around the house. LOL  Bare butts are so cute.  But puddles are a little less cute.


So today we're rocking the twist.  I have a lot of doublers, so we'll use the twist to keep a doubler or two in place.  No need for a square flat for this one.  Even better, I think this one might be simple enough for Daddy to work.


We'll see if we have any dropping diapers today!  


Anyone else have a favorite fold?

Mom to eight!!  Our twin girls arrived 3-3-2011.

"Bare butts are so cute.  But puddles are a little less cute." HAHA seriously!


I like the kite fold with for older babies and the oragami fold for younger ones. I really like pins for the little ones. I think they contain the poo better.
