How I Fold Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers can be as simple or as complex as you make them.

Here is a quick tutorial to show you how I easily fold and use cloth diapers.




The diapers that I use are pockets stuffed with flats, and flats with covers. I have a very small amount of storage space to keep them and have found that these are the easiest and take up a small amount of space.






To fold a flat into an insert for my pockets:

Lay the flat diaper out flat, then fold it in half, then fold in half again.


Then fold over 1/3 of the square.

Fold over the last 1/3 of the square to make a long rectangle.

Then insert into the diaper.








To use the flat with a cover, follow the same folding technique.

Then lay the flat into a cover.










That’s it! Seriously. These two folding techniques are the what I use to cloth diaper my babies. The flats wash and dry quickly and thoroughly since they are only one layer of fabric. Really Easy!!
