Snappi Baby was originally Snap To It, Kate Schumann-Braithwaite is the founder of Snappi Baby. She didn't make a single dime in her first five years, but she also knew she couldn't just give them all away.The Sanppi Diaper Fastener has revolutionized cloth diapering over the past 25 years.
Snappi Diaper Fastener
The Snappi Diaper Fastener ($3.95/ea) is a practical and reliable way to fasten a cloth diaper, whether it is a prefold, flat or closure free fitted diaper. This diaper fastener is latex and silicone free as well as CPSIA compliant. Snappi's are made from stretchable, but non-toxic material and have a t-shaped stretchable fastener has teeth grips on both ends so you can hook it onto almost any fabric and you won't have to use pins anymore!
Snappi Diaper Fasteners are available in two sizes to increase the length of time you are able to use it as well as getting a great fit on your child as babies and toddlers are shaped differently. Snappi users continued to request a larger Snappi, so the Size 2 Snappi was introduced in 2007. This Snappi is better for larger babies and young toddlers. The "T" is longer and once it is stretched correctly, the Size 2 will give an additional 4" of stretch across the width and comfortably fits up to a 30" waist. While sizing greatly depends on the baby or toddler, the Snappi 2 is recommended for children aged 16 months old and up.
In 2006 the Snappi had a makeover! Introducing a crescent shaped loop as a safety feature, this loop can be tucked over the white grips to help prevent the sharp teeth from being exposed. Even with this safety feature, Snappi's should still be kept away from children to prevent injury (cuts and scrapes).
Previous to receiving Snappi Diaper Fasteners I would have to hold the diaper together while closing the cover over it. While you still need a cover when using a Snappi so baby doesn't get hurt or the Snappi doesn't become caught on something if it were to come loose, it is much easier now and we can now using fleece and wool soakers that pull up. Before we were only able to use covers with snaps or velcro. Snappi Diaper Fasteners help make diaper changes easier, especially with babies on the move and they also help to broaden the types of covers you can use, such as pull on covers/soakers.
Prefolds and flats are the easiest to use the Snappi Diaper Fastener with, it is a little hard to catch the teeth of the Snappi on flannel fabrics, but as you can tell from the picture on the left it IS possible.
EpiBi Diaper Liner
Snappi Baby also has a diaper liner called EPIBI, which is patent-pending. This diaper liner wicks away urine and ammonia from your baby's skin to help reduce diaper-related rashes. It is hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. The nice thing about these liners is they are very thin and absorbent, but due to how thin they are, they do not add any bulk! Super nice when you have a heavy wetter and his diaper is bulky enough as it is. I do wish they were a little longer to help protect more of the diaper area, but they are nicely sized for placing in the wet zone which is most important.
Have you ever used a Snappi? If no, have you used another form of diaper fastener? If yes, do you like the Snappi?
