Bikini Twist

This fold is supposedly better for babies with chunky thighs. It's never been my favorite because poop gets in all the creases of the folds and the twisting makes scraping poo into the toilet kind of complicated. However, a lot of people like it because it's trim between the legs and they claim that the 'poop pocket' that's formed can even keep in breastfed poop.

To start, lay the prefold under your baby with the back lined up with their navel. Then twist the front of the diaper.

Bring the diaper up between baby's legs and fold it down below their belly button.

Next, bring the back corners around to the front. Remember, for a good snug fit, the diaper should start high in the back, then wrap around lower to the front.

Snappi each corner, then pull the third snappi leg down to catch the center portion of the diaper and you're done :) .
