When you first look at a blank rectangular prefold or square flat diaper you may think there is no way to get that thing on a little tiny heiny. Trust me, in no time you will be a pro!

There are several ways to fold a prefold, depending on the size, how you are securing the diaper, the size and shape of your baby and whether you tend to have a problem with leaks.

The easiest way to use a prefold or flat diaper is simply to fold it into thirds lengthwise (or however many folds are necessary to make it into a nice rectangle that will fit into a cover). Then lay it in a snug-fitting hook and loop diaper cover such as a Thirsties or Bummis cover. Fasten the cover around baby, and voila! Diapering nirvana!
