The newspaper fold gives plenty of absorbency right up front which is ideal for naptime with tummy sleepers.


Lay the diaper out flat on your changing pad

Lay the baby on the diaper so that the back edge is about even with her belly button


Fold the bottom edge of the diaper up a few inches (your goal is for the prefold to rest around your baby’s bellybutton when you fasten it)


Fold one side of the diaper in towards the center


Fold the other side in towards the center


Pull the front of the diaper up between your baby’s legs


The front of the diaper should come up just below your baby’s belly button.  If it is too long or too short, just start over.

Fasten the diaper snugly
