Give Them Room To Wiggle

When my sister was born, my mother used safety pins to secure her cloth diaper and one of the things she always had to keep in mind was not to give her an accidental “shot.” I liked pins. We had the ones with little animal figures for pin heads. And that’s the way I was going to do my son’s diapers until I found out about Snappis. I made sure to order some right after I ordered the cloth diapers I was going to be using when baby arrived. I am very glad I did.

The Snappi Cloth Diaper Fasteners are an easier, safer way to fasten your baby’s diaper. They are made of stretchy plastic in the shape of a “T.” At each end of the “T” it has claws that grip into the diaper fabric for a snug, comfortable fit on your baby. They are BPA, latex, and silicone free, non-toxic, and biodegradable. They can be easily cleaned in hot soapy water. They are made in South Africa.


To use:

Stretch Snappi a few times before first use for better elasticity.

Hook one side, stretch and hook to the other side, stretch down the middle and hook.


Warning:

  • You should always use a cover over a Snappi fastener.
  • Keep out of reach of children when not in use.
  • Do not use on children who are able to disrobe themselves.
  • Do not use Snappis longer than 6 months.
  • Exposure to the sun can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi.


Caution:

Inspect the Snappi before each use and discontinue using immediately if there are any signs of cracking, tearing, breakage or wear of the teeth or any other parts.

Pros

  • No pins! They are safer to use than diaper pins.
  • They are easy to use.
  • They are non-toxic.
  • They come in a wide variety of colors.
  • They are durable.

Cons

  • They do not work with all fabrics. The fabric you use these on has to be thick enough that the material will not unravel and the claws won’t poke through.
  • The claws are sharp.
  • They are more expensive than diaper pins.
  • Despite the fact they are durable, it is recommended that you discard them after 6 months of use.

Overall:

Although, Snappis are more expensive than diaper pins, they are safer and easier to use; which I consider to be well worth investing in. Many times I have had to change my wiggling son and I could not imagine trying to pin his diaper when he is like that. I bought the 5 pack with two whites, two light greens, and a blue one. I wished it had another blue or a light blue (to match with his diaper covers) instead of one of the white ones but that’s just me being picky. They are a great product and I would definitely recommend them to anyone using cloth diapers.
