Re: 2012 Flats picture thread..

I never got great at that.. DS poos more like slid off as I was changing him than came out the legs.. A good tight oragami helped. First I took what would become the leg gusset and pulled it along his side, then wraped the tabs around. So there was a little tuck. After that I would tuck and roll each leg super duper tight! I still do that with the oragami, pull the "leg" up along his side, then tabs over. Then tuck and roll really tight.

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.

I've never seen that! Its been a long time though since folding over longways would fit ds in the waiste.

Nicole yours too as it just barely fit into a large FRB lol.
I didn't get on my computer tonight for pics but after 4.5 yrs of exclusively CDing these have been a fav and with two in diapers I love the simplicity! Anyone else anal about having a completely square and symmetric fold?

Can you do demo pics with a plain flat--I can't see where you're folding with the dyed one!

Re: 2012 Flats picture thread..



3.5 weeks old at 5lbs6oz. Was a preemie girl.

The fold is the triangle fold. Really simple and absorbant. Flat is a gmd bleached small.

Sure! Those are not my demo pics and I had a really hard time figuring those out at first too. I will be back later today to get those up.
