The Snappi is an amazingly simple invention that gives parents the confidence they need to successfully cloth diaper. I love pins, but many people are fearful of pinning and yet still want a snug diaper to contain poopies. The Snappi diaper fastener is simple to use and perfect for little babies when the pins seem so large. A diaper cover must be worn when using the Snappi.
Each Snappi comes complete with easy to follow instructions for securing your baby's diaper properly.
The Snappi is preferred by new parents using prefolds on a brand-new infant. The Snappi allows them to secure the diaper well and then secure the cover. Older babies may have success using the toddler size snappi to maximize the use of their infant prefolds. When the regular snappi seems a bit snug, but your prefolds are still long enough for the baby consider using the toddler snappi to secure your prefold and give you the extra room needed around the waist.
NOTE: This product is designed to be operated BY persons OVER the age of 12.
Snappi®s are available in 8 colors: White, Mint, Pink, Pastel Blue, Lilac, Dark Blue, Red and Purple.
EXTRA SAFETY FEATURE!
The Snappi® fastener underwent a ‘makeover’ in 2006. The basic shape and function remains the same, the only change being that the rings at the end of each leg have been replaced with a solid piece embossed with the Snappi® logo and a crescent-shaped loop at the end of each leg, which gives the Snappi® this EXTRA SAFETY FEATURE. When the Snappi® fastener is not in use, fold the loop over the back of the Snappi® end to fit over the teeth of the white grip. This acts as a barrier and prevents the sharp teeth from being exposed. These loops are NOT to be pulled on when attaching the Snappi® fastener to the diapers. When attaching the Snappi®, hold onto the solid part of the tab.
WARNING: Keep all Snappi® fasteners out of children’s reach when not in use.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Snappi® fasteners must be used responsibly, and need to be used correctly in order to work effectively.
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, will pull 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. So,
Stretch ACROSS and Hook Right,
Stretch DOWN and Hook Center
In other words, the Snappi® fastener should go from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.
By following these instructions, the Snappi® should be secure and the diaper will fit snugly. ALWAYS place a cover over the diaper and Snappi® fastener.
