How to Use Flat Diapers (Birdseye and Muslin Flats)

Tip from Karen:   The diaper fold can be quick, sloppy and wrinkled and it will still catch the pee, so do not worry about fancy folding techniques. You do not need to know the names of folds. Getting the cotton in the cover somehow is enough.

Here are some video tutorials to help you learn some of the various ways to use flat cloth diapers.

This video shows a comparison of the one-size birdseye flat and the one-size muslin flat and it shows how to pad fold them. This is the easiest fold.
