Snappi and fasten your baby’s diapers with ease!
These marvelous little inventions allow you to easily close up your baby’s prefold or flat folded diaper, even one-handed. They work on the same principle as a bandage closure (plastic grip teeth grab the diaper fabric and hold it closed under three points of tension).When pinning isn’t safe or intuitive (think baby sitters, grandparents, etc), these fasteners do the trick. There is very little risk of injury associated with these. That said, the gripper teeth can be sharp, and I have had on rare occasions a light scuff across an errant leg while getting it adjusted. You must discontinue use when baby can undress himself (which for us was at about a year).We’ve gone through about a dozen of these in a year of exclusively cloth diapering (100% cotton prefolds with PUL covers). They will wear out with constant use. Breakages do occur sometimes, but in the form of small tears and obvious stress, rather than snapping like a rubber band.We felt very safe using these efficient fasteners with our son, and would readily use them again with another baby. Much easier than using pins, and much more secure than going without fasteners entirely. It would be more ideal if they had a longer life, but they do endure constant tension, so breakages are expected over time.
I love using these for flats! They don’t work as well for prefolds because my son is a chunk, but that’s okay. For quite a few months we almost exclusively used flats so these were a big step up from old school pins. =]
So much easier!
I love these things! They make using prefolds a snap! The reason I give it 4 stars is because the white claw part can come apart from the rubber part which could be a major chocking hazard.
Nifty tool, needs some improvement
I think this is angreqt replacement for pins amd the pros have all been covered. Just make sure your little one does not grab it – I always seem to somehow find the pointy end in my LO’s mouth.The thing that needs improvement is the tabs you pull. The loops at the end broke in all three of mine within the month and I was amused to find the warranty exclude the loop. We had done precisely what the package said not to do – we used the loops to pull the snappi tight. We knew it shouldn’t be done, but between my husband., the grandparents and myself we all admitted to doing it anyway since its hard to resist the loops without thinking twice. The tabs which you are supposed to pull on is ridiculously short for what its meant to do – good luck grasping it between two fingers and putting effort to stretching the snappi. The tabs need to be longer and have a grippy texture.
Just as described and works like a charm. I Definitely recommend these for those looking to cloth diaper their baby.
Ideal if you are doing prefold diapers
Used cotton prefold diapers with my newborn from when she was 5 days old until she was 10 weeks. After that she could fit into Best Bottom (daytime) and Bum Genious (nighttime) diapers I’m now using for her). The snappis have held up great and I will be used on our next baby. Make sure to take advantage of the wrap around rubber ends that protect them from catching on clothes and other cloth especially when tossing them in your diaper bag. Considering the alternative (diaper pins?) this is an awesome product!If its helpful: For 10 weeks of newborn diapers I use the following: 2 Rumparoozs newborn covers, 2 Thirsties size 1 covers, one package of Snappis, and 18 prefolds (12 infant and 6 infant shorts from a local store). I did laundry every 1.5 days with this stash but was doing my older daughters diapers as well so not a problem. But to do laundry every other day with a newborn I would have needed 24 prefolds and maybe 2 more covers.
Do not work on flannel diapers
I bought these for my daughter as she will be cloth diapering. Most of her diapers are home made flannel. The only diapers these work with are the looser weave Chinese prefolds and flats.Pins it will be!
SOOooo much better than pins…
My mom tried convincing me that safety pins were just as easy as anything else and that a little practice was all I needed. I’m sure with practice it WOULD have been easier, but why spend the time, blood, sweat and tears trying to get something right when I could use something so easy and simple as a snappi?! I LOVE my snappies and consider them a vital part of my prefold cloth diapering collection. Love love love.
