How To Fold a Nappy?

When Ryan was born, there were lots of things to learn and there are still many things that I'm learning on a daily basis. So, I thought I will start a `HOW TO' series to share on some of things that I've been taught as I explore the wonderful journey of parenthood.

My confinement lady was the one folding all the cloth nappies when she was around during the first month when Ryan arrived. I knew that I would probaby be the one asked to do it when she leaves. So, I asked her to teach me.

1) Fold the nappy along the center line, making it into a rectangular as shown in figure (1)

2) Fold the rectangular nappy along the center line, making it into a square as shown in (2)

3) Lift the top right hand corner and fold it down, making it into a triangle in front as shown in (3)

4) Turn the nappy over. Fold the square over to get the overlap as shown in (4)

5) Fold the small rectangular that you have obtained in (4). You should get a long narrow rectangular as shown in (5). This part is the thickest of the nappy, he part to hold the wee-wee.

6) Fold the nappy liner along the center and place the nappy liner on the thickest part of the cloth nappy. The nappy is now ready for use.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could

I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
