If you use traditional sized prefolds

Whats your favorite fold for when your baby grows out of the newborn size but the premiums are still too big? I cant quite get the newborn prefolds to snappi on my boys anymore so iv been trifolding them in a cover and then using a snappi with the premiums, I can get them to fit by folding over the front but im having a hard time getting the legs tight. Im doing the angel wing fold, any other folds work better for when they are still kinda big? Thanks!

I think the bikini twist works well when the prefold is a bit too long.

Re: If you use traditional sized prefolds

I just folded down the rise for the short time I used them. My son very quickly outgrew the width though. By 4 months my son had a 22+ inch waist. As I use wool soakers, shorties, and longies trifolding wasn't an option. We wound up switching to GMD green edge/x-large. We did the same and just folded down the back rise to what we needed it to be.
