Newborn Flat Fold Tutorial- Mini Kite Fold

This post may contain affiliate links.

Even though I don’t have a newborn to show the fold on, I was able to get a good grasp of how well the Mini-Kite Fold would work on one.  The shelf in the back and the jelly-rolled legs make this a perfect fold to hold in those runny poops and prevent poopspolsions in conjunction with a good fitting cover.

I made this tutorial based on the requests of so many who wanted a newborn flat fold tutorial.  I have several other flat fold tutorials already and you can find them all by visiting this YouTube Playlist: Flat Cloth Diaper Fold Tutorials.

    Thank you for the great tutorial! My baby is due in a few short weeks so I will get practicing now.

    Any ideas how this fold fits inside tiny covers like the newborn size bummis wrap?

      The newborn Bummis is actually very, very tiny so it will depend on the size of the flat TBH.

    Thank you, my babies are little tiny and this is a much more compact fold.
