I love using prefolds and flats on both Grady and Haley. While the majority of my stash is pocket diapers, I occasionally switch to using the “old-fashioned” diapers when I feel like a change. I love doing different “folds” with these diapers, but I’m not very good at using diaper pins, so I’m very happy that there’s a product on the market that makes using prefolds and flats super easy!
Snappi Baby is the company that distributes the Snappi Diaper Fastener! It’s a pin-less diaper fastener that makes using cloth diapers that require a closure so easy. They’re made from a stretchable non-toxic material (polyester based polyurethane) and come in a wide variety of colors and 2 different sizes (a size 1 and a size 2 for toddlers).
The benefits of this fastener include:
- SAFER THAN PINS – no more pinpricks for baby or parent!!
- RELIABLE – a snug fitting diaper to prevent those dreaded leaks
- DURABLE – no snaps that can become brittle/rust, nor any velcro to catch all the lint in the wash!! At least if your Snappi® fastener needs to be replaced, your expensive diaper is not wasted!!
- ECONOMICAL – affordable fastener that works very well with the less expensive flat, prefold or contour cloth diapers
- EASY to use – allows first time parents, grandparents and people with arthritic problems to cloth diaper with ease. It is as easy as 1 – 2 – 3
We received a Snappi in size 1 to review. They are seriously so easy to use! You have to prep them a bit by pulling on each “leg” about 10 times to give it some stretch. Then after you have your diaper on your baby (prefolds, flats, contours, etc.) you just hook it to the left, then the right, and then down the middle. Basically, you’re turning the “T” into a “Y”. If that’s confusing, just take a look at the picture below:
Here’s a picture of a prefold on Haley secured with a Snappi:
One thing that’s worth mentioning is that the “teeth” on the Snappi are pretty sharp. You’ll either want to use the safety feature by hooking the loop over the “teeth” or you’ll want to keep your Snappi out of reach of your toddler when you’re not using it.
If you have prefolds or flats in your stash, you’ll definitely want to have a Snappi on hand! It makes using these types of diapers a cinch. It’s never failed to hold a diaper in place for me!
Do you use prefolds or flat diapers? What do you use to close them? Ever tried a Snappi?
