how to nippa a prefold?

Postby 123princesssammie » Sat Aug 29, 2009 9:35 pm

i have been given loads of BambinoMio prefolds, about 4 small and 20 large, alesha is 18lb so using the medium and large wraps but the prefolds seem way to long inside the nappy(pops out the back if i try and put it on), am i doing something wrong? i have been using pockets and 2 partners for so long now, confused on how to do these?
i have read a couple posts on here about people that nippa there prefolds, how does this work (pictures would be good as i not good at instructions unless stupidly clear lol)

Never tried it (I use terry squares, not prefolds), but have a look at the Nifty Variations bit :)

When i nippa a prefold i lay it flat and then fold 2 inches or so down at the back and then bring it up betwen his legs...if its still a bit too long then i fan out the front anf fold it down a bit and then nippa :)

To nippa I~
lay the prefold flat, fold back as necessary and then fold the two side panels into the middle panel between his legs and bring it up (if its too long then i fan out and fold down again) and then I pul the sides around to meet the front bit and nippa each side and the middle. My Ds is 4 months and about 15lbs and I use the larges (blue stitching around the edge...JJ ones) as the smalls wont reach around him now :)

If your just trifolding then~
lay prefold flat, fold an inch or so down at the front and then trifold it, makes the front abit bulkier but it should fit in the wrap better like that :)

This site shows how to with pictures~

Ooh, I'm going to have a go at that. I have a pile of prefolds that at present I just have been using as boosters.
