How to Fold a Cloth Diaper

Prefolds and flat diapers are simple, inexpensive, and easy to wash and dry. The trade off is learning a few easy folds to put the diaper absorbency where your baby needs it.

CLOTH DIAPER LINGO: PREFOLD = A prefolded and sewn flat diaper. Before there were prefolds there were large squares of one-layer of absorbent fabric. When mothers realized that they were often folding the diapers the same way to start, they just sewed up the seams with extra absorbency down the center, and they had a prefolded (and sewn) diaper. Over time, prefolds became their own type of diaper.
