Neat Nappy Fold

Starting with the nappy laid flat, fold one corner in towards the centre. How much you fold in is dependent on how wide you need the waist of the nappy to be. The further in you fold the corner, the larger the 'waist' of the nappy will be... neat nappy fold - step 1

Now pull corner '3' across and up so that the corner ends up in the centre of the flat edge at the top of the nappy. neat nappy fold - step 3

Place a liner in the centre of the nappy if required. Lay your baby on the nappy with the waist level with the top edge of the nappy. Pull the nappy ('5') up between the baby's legs and the wings ('6' & '7') around the baby's waist before fastening with a pin or nappi nippa, making sure to grip/pin fabric from all three parts of the nappy to secure it snugly. neat nappy fold - step 5
