How to Fold Flat Cloth Diapers for Newborn Babies

I use the pad fold with flat diapers because for me it’s the quickest and easiest, and requires no pins or fasteners.

But when I tried to use the pad fold for newborn Erik, it was too long for his tiny covers. So I invented my own fold and dubbed it the “Mini Pad Fold.” Here’s a quick photo tutorial:

The second photo shows that the Mini Pad Fold results in the same number of folds/layers at the front and back, so there’s isn’t too much bulk at either end.

Here’s a comparison of the two folds:
