Don't worry...they are SUPER easy to use. My hubby actually prefers them over the AI2 we use! I can explain it to you, but I think you'll get a better idea if you SEE it. I went to YouTube and searched prefolds. There are a number of videos to help guide you. That's where I learned to use a prefold. And after a couple diaper changes, you'll have it in no time!

you could just buy some gdiaper covers and fold into 3rds it works great when little but once bigger they figure out how to take the diapers off
