Delving into the world of prefolds this past summer was a scary thing for me since I knew that using oldschool diaper pins was definitely not within my comfort zone, being the sleep-deprived klutz that I am! So, when I started networking with blogging friend Shannon (a.k.a. The Artful Mama) and chatting about her "Diaper Parties" Consulting service & business through Everything Birth, I was excited to hear that we could partner together on having me demo a Snappi, a pinless cloth diaper fastener!

I had seen pictures of Snappis before and wasn't quite sure how I felt about them. In the photos I had seen, they looked rigid, and I imagined that they would be hard to work with and adjust on a growing (and wriggling!) baby! Little did I know (until I received the Snappi in the mail), these are actually made of a very soft, pliable rubber/silicone type material that allows them to bend, flex, twist, and stretch.

The Snappi arms are flexible and stretchy for a great fit & grip |

The Snappi fastener works like a tensor bandage claw, only it has three claws that are triangulated into three branches to ensure that equal tension holds a prefold snuggly in place on the tummy. I should mention that these claws are

*extremely*sharp and could definitely cut sensitive baby skin, so you want to make sure that the Snappi ends are really anchored in well before you leave the prefold as is. For playtime and for mobile wee ones, I would definitely recommend using a cover while using the Snappi to avoid any owies that could result from curious fingers prying at it. All that being said, however, I have NEVER had it snag anything, come undone, or--frankly--move one bit, even when being worn for a 12 hour overnight stint. It holds really well, and the diaper never sags or bags even after lots of tumbling around.

A soft, stretchy tab protects the firm claw below |

I am now the hugest prefold lover, thanks to this handy little fastener! And, quite honestly, one or two is all you need. If it ever happens to get soiled, this little fastener would be a cinch to rinse off in the sink. Having one at home for us has worked just fine since we primarily use fastened prefolds only for nighttime. I could see that having a second one in a diaper bag could also come in handy in a pinch, and since they honestly take up less space than a tube of lipstick, they are a no-brainer to keep in several handy locations (or at the babysitter's house, etc).

The Snappi comes in two different sizes--Size 1 (infant) and Size 2 (toddler), and with plenty of stretch these have a wide range of fits for all baby body types and waist sizes. At only $3.95 (infant) and $4.95 (toddler) each, these are honestly one of the best inventions for modern diapering. I could never go back to not having one, and I'm so thankful for Shannon to introducing me to this handy gadget!

Head on over to Shannon's store, which has hundreds of amazing diapering, baby, and mommy products, Snappis aside. Stocked by Everything Birth, her online store is honestly a terrific one-stop shop for any items you've been meaning to pick up.
