Wish you could afford pinless diapers, but all you can afford is prefolds?

Add some Velcro® to your diapers, for a great pinless fit!

If your baby is already born, just fold your diapers to fit your baby, try one on for Velcro® placement.

Pin a 4"-6" (10 cm - 15.25 cm) strip of loop Velcro® across the front of the diaper, and 1"-2" (2.5 cm - 5 cm) strip of hook Velcro® on the top-inside of the diaper, coming round from baby's back, one strip on each side of waist.

Make sure this will hold the diaper on your baby snugly and securely, remove diaper from baby, and then sew the Velcro® in place.

Use this diaper as a sample to mark the rest of your diapers.

If your baby isn't born yet, fold your diapers down about 1/3 and place your loop Velcro® across there.

When baby outgrows this, you can simply un-stitch and move the Velcro® about 1"-2" (2.5 cm - 5 cm) above or, for longer use, add another strip of loop Velcro® that is 2"-4" (5 cm - 10 cm) longer above the first strip.
