|This is a snappi.|
|These are its teeth.|
I scoured the instructions and quickly learned that it would never work on my tiny little prefolds, so I purchased this unbleached OsoCozy Indian Prefold from Mom's Milk Boutique. (Love their free shipping!)

Now, I'm not a prefold folding expert by any stretch of the imagination (I'm hoping to learn about folding this week from the other blogs!), so I tried folding it how I remembered my mom folding my younger siblings diapers - Tri-fold
|Tri-folded Indian Prefold|
I thought folding the front in would be a good move for keeping leaks to a minimum, so I did that.
|Front folded down about an 1"|
I fanned out the bum area to accommodate the Bug's posterior.
Then I fold the front part to the back and overlap the "wings" so that they are laying on the front of the diaper.
|Isn't it starting to look like a diaper?|
Okay here's the tricky part. I have arguably the WORST fine motor skills. So if I can get a snappi on a prefold, you can too! Remember the picture of those snarly snappi teeth? Well, hook one side of the snappi onto the wing of the diaper. I start with the left side. Those teeth will grab the fabric and hold it.
|Attach one side of snappi to the wing.|
Pull the snappi firmly across the diaper and hook those teeth into the other wing.

|Pull down the center part and let it grab fabric.|
This is what it looks like all done. Now just insert wiggly baby!
Ha, or not! I'm sure your sweet babe will be much more accommodating!
