Thanks to Julie for this Frugal Baby Tip!
When I first switched to cloth, I met a mom on this list who told me she pinned her prefolds. I said "Oh no! If I have to pin there's no way I'm going to switch!" But, really it is no big deal, and the fit is so much better. Plus they can run around with just the diaper, if need be. I actually even pin my fitteds instead of using snaps or Velcro.
This is a pretty good fold, especially for those with chunky thighs, however it doesn't contain the bowel movement blowouts on my daughter very well. But a fun change of pace I find I have to fold down the front, and in the sides although it does not show that in this illustration
The Pocket Fold
That's just my adopted name for it. This is my stand-by fold. I contains the poo great, and gives a nice snug fit.
That should get you started, just remember to get good pins (I like Dritz), and keep your fingers between baby and pin, and baby won't get stuck. Although I do get stuck myself sometimes!
