We had leaks until we moved over to pins! Yes, I know, but it is the only way to get a real good snug fit in the legs, IMO, and it does take some practice! We used the newspaper fold. I flared out the legs before folding it up, and after pinning, I made sure the outer edges on the leg sides were not tucked in. I tucked the legs in, but kept the edges flat against the leg. So, when you flare out the sides before folding up, make sure the sides are laying flat against the thighs. I wish I could explain this better-look at all the newspaper folding and look at the "poo pocket" they speak of. For me, I tried to get that pocket as open as I could, so tucking the legs in or not flaring the sides out would overlap that pocket. Next time, when you have a poop, take the diaper off and try to keep it in the same shape to see where the leaks are happening. When I did this, I found that the poo was rolling off the sides that were tucked in, so that is why I started to flare them out!
