I’ve tried different insertion methods but the only one I can use so far without pain is the punchdown fold. However once partially inserted I can’t get it in any further as the fold creates almost a corner where you hold it which is painful to insert so I can’t get it in any further and it feels like it’s at an angle. I’m using the saalt soft small so it shouldn’t be an issue of softness.

I’m not sure if there are any more folds I could try that are small but dont have the corner or if I’m not inserting at the right angle. I also need the fold to be easy to hold which is an issue as I have arthritis in my hand so can’t grip the cup strongly
