Newborn Cloth Nappy Fold

I'm one for ease and convenience and I tried several different cloth nappy folds, the newborn fold is my preferred one because it is easier to clean ll the poo off.  no nasty surprises in the folds and crevices that the kite fold or the boy fold make!

So to do it:

  • Fold your square in half
  • take one of the corners across to the other side to make a triangle - so there's 3 corners in one side and one on the other
  • Place it back down with the triangle down and roll the layer into a pad and your newborn folded terry square is ready to go!

Easy hey?!

This took less time than using the modern cloth nappies and snapping in the boosters.  it's draw backs are that it's quite bulky under clothes, but there are more baggy pants and leggings coming out now that accommodate cloth nappies these days so it's getting easier all the time.

The other reason I like terry squares over the modern cloth nappies I have is that the cotton dries quicker than the bamboo booster and so it was great during wet times as I could get my nappies dried quicker.

The modern cloth were also fabulous and I wouldn't go without altogether, but having terry squares was essential in my opinion.

Also having enough of the boosters and terry squares to last me 3 days meant I didn't use my dryer much at all as I'd let everything have a good 48 hours to dry and a quick flash in the dryer only if necessary. (I only had 2 days worth of covers as they dry a lot quicker).

It meant too that when I had lots of dirty nappies in one day I wasn't worried about running out (and my little guy was a prolific pooer so that happened fairly frequently - we changed his nappy hourly a lot of the time!)

The other essential is having a clothes drying rack instead of relying on the washing line just in case it does rain you can keep everything under cover.
