I'm a twenty something striving to become the person I want to be "when I grow up". Yes, I may be a wife and mother, but my adventure is just beginning. My motto:
"Live Stronger. Live Greener. Live Simpler. Love."

How to fold a cloth diaper
To fold a cloth diaper, you first lay it out flat. Note that I color coded the sides to make it a little bit clearer. The colors are green, blue, pink, and orange.
Then, hotdog fold the diaper (you teachers know what I mean). Fold it so you have a long rectangle.
Next, fold the diaper again by folding the rectangle in half. Your diaper should look like this.
Now, this is the tricky part. Grap the top layer of the cloth diaper like this. Hold down the other three layers. The corner you grab is the only one with a loose corner you can pick up. You are going to pull it across to make a triangle.
< = Like This! Then you need to flip the entire thing over
Next, take the square part that seems separate from the triangle and fold it over itself to kind of roll it towards the center. And finally....
You get this! Yay you're done!
I color coded my first folding diaper until I figured out how to do it without keeping track of sides, but once you get it down, you can fold them really easily!
