Bootstrap columns in mobile version

I'm using bootrap to make a website, but it's something is wrong.

I want to make 2 rows and 3 collums and when the screen changes to mobile, I want it to be 3 rows and 2 column.

Desktop

|A| |B| |C|
|D| |E| |F|


Mobile

|A| |B|
|C| |D|
|E| |F|


I used the code below to do it, but the images don't stay like I want it to.

<div class="row">
<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-4">Content</div>
<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-4">Content</div>
<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-4">Content</div>
<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-4">Content</div>
<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-4">Content</div>
<div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-4">Content</div>
</div>


The images stay like this

|A| |B|
|C|
|D| |E|
|F|


Thanks in advance!

I have run into this problem before. The issue has been that my content is different heights. Because Bootstrap uses floats to arrange it's columns your column C cannot float all the way to the left if your column A is taller than column B.

I have included a link to a codepen so you can see it in action. The top two rows are exactly your code above while the bottom two rows show a div with a different height than the other divs.

The solution for you will be to set the height of your divs to the max height for all your content. Something like

.maxHeightDiv {
    height: 200px;
}

You'll probably have to set heights for different window widths. It can be a little annoying but this is a caveat of the bootstrap float system.
