Solomon is a handsome little guy!

I love flats too, kite fold and airplane fold are my favorites for my 20 month old.

I need a flat fold that has wide wings so I use one pin in the center instead of two on the side for my 9 mo dd, someone help! And also would like a demo on the bikini twist, I really like the way it looks but haven't figured it out yet

We use mostly flats around the house on both 1 month old and 18 month old and LOVE them! Not a better diaper out there IMO. Will see what I can find

Oragami? What about kite? I could ALMOST pin one pin on DS with the Neat.. But I dont usually do that.. seems I cant get a tight fit that way.

Bikini twist with flats? Thats new.

Re: 2012 Flats picture thread..

I am so going to keep up with this thread! The other one is SO long...I just couldn't get through the whole thing. I need to figure out how to use flats so that EBF poo doesn't explode out of the legs....is there a way?? I have ususally used the kite fold, but would love to try something else....I want to use flats at random again, but just can't do the explosion mess....PLMK if there are any ideas out there.

Loving the pictures...I will take some if I put a flat on Lucy soon

I love the bikini twist for my flats. I do it differently for different flats.

For the gerber flats, they are so small that I just folded them in half the short way and then I had the size of basically a premium prefold and twisted them the same way I would a prefold. They are really stretchy so it worked well.

For my ll's and Diaper Rites here is how I do it.

Scroll down to modified bikini twist. Let me know if you need more clear pictures. I used this without a doubler for a LOOONG time when we used flats and wool for the summer.
