The folds are what puts most people off from trying terries, but they really aren’t difficult or time consuming once you’ve done them a few times. Plus you only need to learn one, and then just see how you go.
You can even pre-fold terries before putting them in a box/drawer/wherever you store your clean nappies, so when you need one it is ready to go. This isn’t any more time consuming than stuffing a pocket nappy.
Here are a few videos on how to do some of the most popular folds. If you aren’t sure where to start then I’d recommend the Jo fold as a good starter one. Honestly you’ll be a pro in no time.
