We use cloth diapers on Jonas almost exclusively. If you want to read more about how we cloth diaper and the various diapers we have used so far, you can check out this post. In that post I touched briefly on how we used Snappi diaper fasteners to secure our prefold diapers on the babe before putting on a cover.
I decided to take to video and illustrate how to use a Snappi with a variety of types of diapers.
In case you didn’t want to watch the video, or couldn’t because a baby was sleeping on you (can you tell I speak from experience?), don’t worry I totally get it, so I’m including the ‘Coles Notes’ version below.
Snappi is used instead of a diaper pin. If you’ve got a wriggly 18-month old who likes to do diaper change gymnastics, like mine does, then you’ll really appreciate the Snappi instead of a diaper pin.
Snappi is made from a (patented) stretchable non-toxic material and manufactured in South Africa. I’m not sure why that fact intrigues me. I guess I don’t see a lot of products in my neck of the woods that are made in South Africa. Make sure you give your new Snappi a few stretches before using it for the first time.
Snappi has gripping little teeth at three points, providing a secure fit of a cloth diaper. These teeth work best on thick woven fabrics like cotton prefolds. In the video, I show Snappi being used on a cotton prefold, folded flour sack towel, and a terrycloth cotton fitted diaper. I feel like the Snappi works well for all three types of diapers. Snappi may not work on microfibre or hemp diapers because they don’t have as thick of weave on which to grip.
Snappi has a safety feature to cover those grippy little teeth and prevent snags when not in use. Just fold the loops on each end over the teeth. This is what you’d want to do if you decide to throw the Snappi in the wet bag when you’re out and about. Do not throw the Snappi in the wet bag without covering the teeth because chances are it will snag the PUL lining. Ask me how I know.

One note about delivery: Canada Post (the postal service in Canada, where I am located) is currently on strike and mail service has been interrupted. I didn’t want to delay my review and giveaway until they are operational as we haven’t heard exactly how long the lockout will last. The winner will be contacted immediately after the drawing is made but may not receive the product until much later due to this interruption in mail services. I will communicate with the winner directly about this. Giveaway is open to Canadian and U.S. residents only.
Disclosure: I was provided a set of Snappi diaper fasteners to demonstrate and review. I was also provided a set to giveaway to one of my readers. The honest opinions expressed in this review are my own.
