Thanks to Angela for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I like *looong* pads so I when I go to pull up my undies I grab the pad at the top with my thumb and it is all there, this keeps them bunching front to back. If they bunch sideways I fold mine so they are a tad bit wider and that gives enough coverage. Occationally I need to refold them and start over, but as I get better at this that needs be done less and less. I use what looks like tiny (2x3x2) prefolds that I made out of flannel and I swear by these for light to almost heavy days.

The flannel "holds" onto the fabric better, that's why you can use flannel boards to hold fabric up on a wall...something I recently heard about while I try (and did) complete my quilt top.
