The Jo fold is what I consider to be the best flat nappy fold-it’s easy, trim and unisex. It’s easy to part-fold and stack on a shelf, and generally when most people discover it it quickly becomes all they use.
However it’s not very well known! So if you’ve never heard of it, give it a try using the instructions below. Left and right refer to your left and right, not the childs.
-Do the same thing with all the corners. This is when you determine the size-if you have a smaller child, overlap the corners slightly. If you have a larger child don’t fold them all the way to the centre. As you can see my nappy is not quite square anymore so it doesn’t fold perfectly. It’s not origami so it doesn’t matter.
-Now you need to insert your child-I found mine outside digging happily in the dirt, hence the grotty legs. Their bum goes on the fanned-out part so the top of the nappy sits at their waist, the narrow part is brought up between their legs, and the fanned-out corners are brought around to fasten at the front.
-Stretch the bottom part of the Snappi down and dig it firmly into the middle of the nappy. I hold the nappy in place with my left hand as pictured and attach the Snappi with my right, it takes a bit of practice but once you get the hang of it it will only take a few seconds.
-Done! You can leave it like that if you change after every pee, or you can use a cover. Pepper OSFM covers are great over flats ;P
Hope that’s clear-if you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them below!
