I just started CD in the last few days as Tiergan was born premature and just a little to small for CD's. I have a bunch of AIO and pockets but some of them are still just a little too big.

I was given a bunch of prefolds and told they are better for such small ones. I was shown how to fold but I forgot by the time I got home. Anyone know of any good websites that will show a diagram of how to fold. The fold that I was shown was called a bikini twist fold?

I have no clue, but you can probably do a search on YouTube and find a video of how to do it. A video would probably be easier to follow anyway. GL!

Search youtube and/or google for:
Jellyroll prefold (sometimes called "sidewall" instead of jellyroll)
Angel wing prefold

I don't recommend bikini twist because it is messy with runny poops unless you are super talented with it. I have had disasters with it even with toddler poops but I LOVE the jellyroll. Angel wing is a bit simpler and also good. Let us know if you can't figure it out! Good luck
