How do you "Fold" your kids laundry?

Weird question, but how do you fold your babies laundry? I just washed all my sons laundry for when he will be a newborn, and put it away in the dresser. At first I folded them in kind of squares, but then unfolded them all. I decided to fold everything in half and roll them up. That way I can sort of see what is what. How do you do it?

My girls aren't babies anymore :( they're 8, almost 7 and almost 6 so I fold their pj's, shorts, and short sleeve shirts. I hang up their pants, jeans and long sleeve shirts.

I'll add a pic later. I fold then and instead of laying them in I kinda stand them up, neck and bottom down, so I can see what is what.

Best you can.

I fold them similar to how I fold adult clothes.

My 1 year olds shirts sweaters and one sides are all hung and pants in a dresser. And my 2 1/2 yos shirts are folded like they do at the stores as are pants. They are in a storage cubby type thing in his closet. His sweaters are hung.

I hang all tops and sleepers, then fold the bottoms and put them in the dresser. But, my son is now 4 so his clothes are a lot bigger. I did the same when he was a newborn, though.

 I fold the shirt/onesie sleeves behind the shirt, then fold in half "hamburger style" the pants in half long way then bring the bottoms up to the waist. One sock goes inside the other. Sleepers get the sleeves folded behind, then the legs up so their sticking above the top a little then back down. Nice shirts, coveralls, hoodies, sweatshirts & dresses get hung up. & outfits get hung up together.
