Prefolds slide around in cover, help? Irish Twins Mama ♥ 2 kids; Iowa 2147 posts
10th Jul '13

I always use up all of the pocket diapers I have before using my prefolds and covers (I am a newly cloth diapering mama so I don't have much of a stash yet). I like them, but the prefolds don't stay in place and it bothers me! Any tips on fixing this problem?

Get some boingos or a snappi?



I only put prefolds in a pocket. I use flats with an origami fold when using a cover only.

I just fold it into thirds and flare it out on the ends a bit, place it in the cover, and then onto my baby. That's how I was taught to do it.. :l Nobody said anything about pins.

This is what I always used and had no problems.
