Cloth Diapering

Pre folds and thirsty duos:

What am I doing wrong?? Every poo diaper explodes into the thirsty duo. Usually Dd's clothes stay clean, but I need to change the cover. Is this normal? I only bought 3 covers thinking I'd do laundry every 2-3 days. Me thinks I need more covers.

Re: Pre folds and thirsty duos:

  • Do you snappi or pin the prefold first?  This is critical when LOs are young.
  • Use the Jellyroll fold and a Snappi or pins.  This video shows how to get a tight fit on the legs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R

  • You could try a different fold, but I don't know.  I use the angel fold with snappies and still it often gets on the covers, it was the same with DD.  It gets better when they start eating solids.

  • Yeah, this happened all the time with us. I have 1 Thirsties Duo Wrap cover and 6 prefolds to bulk out my stash. She's pretty much guaranteed to poop the first time I put her in the it, which defeats the purpose of a reusable cover. I've mainly given up o

  • First, the name Evelyn is awesome (that's my daughter's name too!).

    Also, I agree with PP's. Jellyroll fold and snappi or pins. Although 3 covers is really not that many. I would suggest 4 as a minimum, 6 being ideal.

  • I've always done well with the jelly roll and a Snappi. I had poopsplosions all the time with other folds. And yes, I'd spring for more covers. Bububibi covers have worked very well for us, and they're very reasonably priced!

    Maybe try a different fold?

  • Ditto to the jelly roll fold with a snappi. Make sure you pull up the diaper before you use the snappi to make it tight around the legs don't go too tight. You don't want to leave red marks, just snug. Our covers only get dirty about once a day or every

  • I sucked at using a snappi when DD was a newborn and eventually just bought more covers so we had 6 which was enough for EOD washing.
  • Thanks! Who knew there was more than 1 fold? Everything I've learned about CDing has come from my sister :) I'm amazed
