What is the best way to fold a prefold?

I am breastfeeding my daughter and am wondering what the best is to fold her prefolds. I have been using the jelly roll, but find that I am not quick enough as she is pretty antsy.

  • I really liked the twist fold, very easy! But I wondered whether having the seem in the middle would bother her...she never acted like it did.

  • Angel fold . It makes a nice poo pocket especially if you make sure you tuck in the legs after you secure it.

  • We used the bikini twist to keep in runny newborn poop. Simply lay your prefold on the wrap and your baby on top of that, grab the two front conrners and twist them so that the right side is now on the left and the left side on the right. Here's a link to some simple folds (and a diagram of the bikini twist!) from Bummis:
