How Do (The Amazing) Snappi Cloth Diaper Fasteners Work?
There are teeth on each end of the Snappi that grip onto the fabric of cloth diapers and pull the points to a center. This is much like how my baby grips onto my mental energy, and makes sure it's 100% focused on her...all the time...forever. Remember: Snappis are used instead of diaper pins. Most babies aren't strong enough to remove Snappis (props if your baby is), so don’t worry about your little one ripping off their diapers.
When would I use a Snappi?
Whenever you would use a diaper pin! If using a prefold or flat cloth diaper, Snappis make sure the diaper stays in place and doesn't bunch up under the cover.
Snappis are made for regular flat or prefolded diapers that need to be held closed. Since Snappi fasteners work by gripping onto the fabric of diapers with little teeth, it will not work with fabrics that cannot be gripped like microfiber or thin gauzy weaves. Snappi fasteners work best with thick woven cotton fabrics. Washable cloth diapers made of microfiber or hemp cloth may not work as well with Snappis since they do not have a weave for the fasteners to grip onto.
