Flat Nappy Folds: Kite Fold

Added on 04 July 2014 in Bumboo, General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   0 comments

This is the last in our little series looking at some great ways to fold a traditional square flat nappy. And this is the first nappy fold that both Catherine and I learned EVER - a very long time ago. You see, this popular nappy fold - the 'Kite Fold' - was our mum's favourite fold, and I remember her showing me how to fold it and put it on our youngest brother about 25 years ago. This is him helping us out at an Expo - which he'll never do again now that we've mentioned changing his nappy! &n... READ MORE

Flat Nappy Folds: Bat Wing or Origami Fold

Added on 23 June 2014 in Bumboo, General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   1 comments

The Bat Wing Fold (aka Butterfly, Chinese or Origami Fold) is one of the very first flat nappy folds I learned and it's still one of my favourites.

This nappy fold puts lots of absorbency in the centre where it's needed without too much bulk around the sides. It creates a nappy with a shorter rise than some others... READ MORE

Added on 18 June 2014 in Bubblebubs, Bumboo, Bummis, General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   0 comments

Here, gathered in one spot, our favourite ways to fold a prefold nappy. This can be a cotton prefold like the ones by Bubblebubs (see our post here for how to prep an unbleached cotton prefold), or a bamboo prefold like Bumboo. Pad Fold This is the easiest. Just fold the prefold into thirds and pop it in the cover. You can fold the prefold horizontally or vertically: Horizontally gives you a shorter pad with lots of absorbency in the middle. Vertically gives you a longer pad with the absorbenc... READ MORE

The 'angel wing' is one of the most popular ways to fold a prefold nappy - it's quick and easy and provides more coverage than a prefold pad folded into a cover.

During June, we are taking part in a 'Back to Basics' campaign. The purpose of this promotion is to focus the spotlight on traditional cloth nappying options. Before anyone out there rejects the idea completely out of hand, flats and prefolds are seriously not as complicated as they're sometimes made out to be.
