Thanks to Julia for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Here is a link to a good illustration of the fold tha I dub "the pocket fold". It creates a little pocket to catch the poo in. I always make sure that the smallest point of the "v" is right below her labia so that the poop goes straight into the pocket, and nowhere else.

Once I really got the hang of this fold, and started using *good* prefolds, I *never* have leaks. In fact just this morning I was amazed that I didn't. When we woke up she had a MAJOR explosion in there, but it was all contained.
