“This fold is great because it puts a lot of layers along the whole middle.
Baby K and K Bear are all ready to show you how we do our Origami with a Twist :)
Start out as usual-diaper in 4ths (as long as it's about 27"x27")
Make sure the 1 fold is on the left side and the two folded flaps are at the top and the 4 loose flaps are at the bottom and pick up the top layer of the diaper)
Open it up and make a triangle
Fold it smooth. If your diaper is completely square it will all line up-mine aren't quite square but it's not a huge deal
Flip the WHOLE thing over
This is how it looks with the whole thing flipped
Take the left side and fold the two parts over once
Fold it smooth
Fold it over again
And a third time (you can just do twice but there won't be as many layers)
Now get your baby ready-put it so the point of the whole triangle is towards baby's front
Making sure that the back is lined up high enough in the back, bring the front up and around the baby
At this point you can fold the front over like this to make the rise shorter if you need to
OR before laying the baby on the diaper you can fold the back down like this to help hold breastfed poop in
Fold it smooth
With the rise folded down in front, back, or both fit the diaper around the thigh like this and fold it up.
Another view of the wing folded up around the thigh
Now twist the wing
Bring it around and hold it in the front
Repeat with the other side. Cross the extra wing in front and bring the wing ends down
Snappi one side
Snappi the other side
Bring the snappi down over the cross to secure it in place. Alternatively you can pin through all the layers in the center
On the baby-notice how it is really skinny in the hip and there are lots of layers in the hip so the Snappi doesn't scratch him
Another view-he's so stinkin cute :). By the way-he's wearing an Inspired By Finn teething necklace-I highly recommend them!
Last step-add the cover! With this fold there is VERY minimal tucking but make sure NO part of the diaper is hanging out of the cover-if it is it will leak. Make sure the cover fits well around the back, belly, and thighs and secure.
This fold is really trim-even under a onesie. It's not much bigger than a disposable diaper!
All dressed up in overalls!
