How to fold a prefold cloth diaper – "Jelly roll"

This is my favorite way to fold and fasten a prefold diaper. Blow-outs are rare, and combined with a good cover, clothes are pretty much always spared the mess.

First, start with naked baby in need of a diaper.


I like to fold the back part under and lay her on top. That “lip” of diaper keeps the poo-splosions from going up the back.


The I roll each side in like so…


And so


Take the rolled parts up between the legs


And then fan them out to each side


Grab the corners of diaper from behind


And fasten!


Cover, and you’re done!
