Snappi Review

A little over a year ago, I tried a Snappi for the first time. I was strictly a pocket-diaper user at that point, but my little guy had a rash, and I had to give him some air-time (as the entry points out). Since then I have gotten to use a Snappi many a time, and it got easier and easier each time.

I love how simple they are to use. When you first get them, you need to slowly stretch the sides out so they are a bit more elastic for you when you need to use them.

They have little tabs that can come down and over the hook parts so you can ensure that nobody gets cut or snagged on one when they aren't in use. This is a FANTASTIC feature, as Bobble likes to just grab things and run with them before I can grab him. He probably would have scratched himself up a million times by now if they didn't have those little protectors!



Through trial and error, I quickly learned the best way for me to use the Snappi is slide a finger between the diaper and Bobble when hooking the Snappi into the material. This allows me to ensure that I can hold the material up enough just in case I go through too many layers so I don't scratch any skin.

Snappis come in two sizes, Size 1 and Size 2. Size 2 is for toddlers. This image from the Snappi Website shows a comparison between the two sizes.


The Snappi has no latex, no silicone, and is CPSIA compliant. They are made from a stretchy, non-toxic material. Snappi Fasteners are inexpensive and help a parent cloth diaper for less by allowing for use of prefolds/flats and a cover instead of a more expensive pocket or AIO diaper.  A cover is essential over the Snappi® fastener to prevent it from catching onto something and coming undone. 

Snappi Fasteners are super easy to use. If you can use the fasteners on an ACE Bandage (or any of those wrap-bandages), you can use a Snappi Fastener. You simply hook into material, stretch, and hook the other end. Voila!

  2. I LOVE snappi's on little babies. I dont like them for toddlers...as I prefer the newspaper fold anyways.

  3. I agree with Amanda, I think they are great for little babies but I've found that they put a lot of pressure on the stomach and crotch area for bigger babies, doesn't look comfortable.

  4. Snappis look a little too old school for me. Too close to dealing with pins & plastic pants for my taste.

  5. I've been very happy with Snappis when I've used them in the past on my newborn.

  6. I was scared to death to try prefolds because I was worried about having to use diaper pins and possibly poking a wiggly child. I'm not as worried now since there is a non-sharp alternAtive. I will definitely buy a few snappis!

  8. I just got 2 snappis and I can't wait til we have our LO so I can use them! They're such an awesome invention. :)

  9. I use snappis all the time as I am a flat user. I also have pins, but I rarely use those with all the squiggling that goes on. I have a toddler and I still use a size one without a problem with the types of folds that I make. Trifold users would probably have to go size two for that extra extension.

  10. Snappis are such a great convenience, especially on a wiggly toddler. I'd hate to have to try and get diaper pins on him!

  11. Definitely a must have for prefolds/flats. I never felt comfortable using safety pins on my baby - I'm too much of a klutz!

  13. never tried snappi I myself am a pocket girl but always wanted to try but look a little intimidating but kudos to you on trying.

  14. We used snappis a ton when DD was little and we exclusively used prefolds. The teeth on a snappi are also great for cleaning out the "hook" side of linty aplix!

  15. I have never used Snappis because I too am a pocket diaper lover. I am trying to branch out to different styles though. I have a few fitteds, so maybe next will be prefolds so I can try these.

  23. I love my Snappis and Boingos! I started out with pockets, flats, and prefolds and I have to say that I love them all. They work for different situations. My husband is confused by the Snappi, but I just use it during the day.
