Last year my favourite fold was the origami fold. I am using that a fair bit this year too, along with the Crooked Cape fold that I showed on youtube a while back, but the fold I’m truly embracing is the Padfold! The simple, quick, padfolded flat cloth diaper has really won me over.
My guy wets mostly upfront, and I love how I can utilize the bulky seamed edges of my flats to provide more absorption up front when padfolded. And since some of my flats are larger, I can fold the seamed edges inwards to reduce the “rise” of the pad, and provide even more absorbency up front while keeping the back smooth and bulk-free.
I had never really noticed the versatility of Padfolding before. If I assemble a padfold and tuck it inside a cover, ready to go, my husband will happily reach for it. It’s great for caregivers, and for stuffing in pockets. In fact, the bumGenius Elemental Joy diapers are just that- pocket diapers with padfolded flats as inserts.
