Flat Nappy Folds: Bat Wing or Origami Fold

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. A midwife taught me in hospital - this was almost 13 years ago, and the hospital used cloth nappies then. I used it all the time - especially in the early months - with my babies.

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 so is excellent for newborns. It's also quick and easy.

Don't forget to check out the great deals on luxuriously absorbent bamboo flat nappies available in the June Back to Basic Campaign.
