A safe alternative to pins!
Snappis are safe, simple fasteners for use with prefold diapers. They offer a practical and reliable way to fasten your diaper, replacing the diaper pin entirely. Just fold your diaper the way you'd like, tailoring it to your baby's unique size and shape, and then use your Snappi to secure the diaper snugly!
Snappi fasteners come in a variety of colors and they're made from a stretchable non-toxic material, which is T-shaped with grips on each end. These grips hook into the diaper fabric to ensure a snug-fitting diaper with enough natural movement for the baby.
Directions for Use
1. Stretch the Snappi fastener before its first use. The stretching triggers the 'memory' of the Snappi to return to its original size and in so doing, pulls the diaper together to the middle to allow for a snug fit. This is essential for the Snappi to work properly. This can be done by holding the Snappi in the center with one hand and close to the end of the leg with the other hand. Then s-t-r-e-t-c-h a few times (10 or so). As you do this you should feel how the material 'softens' or gets more elastic. Follow this stretching procedure with each leg. The Snappi is now ready to go!
2. Make sure that the Snappi is attached securely. It is important that the Snappi 'leg' being attached be stretched across the diaper before hooking it into the diaper. When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab. Do not pull on the loops.
By following these instructions, the Snappi should be secure and the diaper will fit snugly. Please be sure to always place a cover over the diaper and Snappi fastener.
How many Snappi fasteners will you need?
Each Snappi can be used over and over again until it shows signs of wear, at which time it should be thrown out and replaced with a new Snappi. We recommend you replace your Snappis after 6 months of use. You may want to keep about 3 or 4 Snappis on hand - one in use, one for the diaper bag, and one or two extra for when the others need cleaning.Save Save
