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?

I've never used a Snappi before...and not sure that I'm going to. I think I prefer hook and loop or snaps to just prefolds and snappis...ReplyDelete
I just bought.two snappi's last week and have been practicing with prefolds on dolls and teddy bears. Baby isn't due for another month. I didn't know that snappi.had a diaper out. I'll have to look into that more. ThanksReplyDelete
Snappi does not have a diaper, the EpiBi is a liner for laying against babies skin inside of a cloth diaper.Delete
I am just like Shalaina; I recently bought Snappis and have been practicing with stuffed animals and prefolds!! I don't think the sizing is quite accurate though...haha. The Snappis are pretty sharp!ReplyDelete
I have not tried a snapping yet, but I have a baby due soon and I want to try using prefolds with snappish with him :)ReplyDelete
Snappi * sorry :)Delete
Used a Snappi (the same one) with both kids!ReplyDelete
I never have but my daughter in law is planning to cloth diaper with baby#2...so maybe she will try themReplyDelete
I have a Snappi but, have never used it. We use liners and not flats, so have not needed them yet.ReplyDelete
What a great idea. We used disposables with my first but we are planning to go cloth for #2.ReplyDelete
I'm not cloth diapering yet but I plan to try Snappis and Boingos and anything else I can get my hands on!ReplyDelete
I have never heard of these but they seem really convenient and easy to use.ReplyDelete
I have never used snappi because I have only used cloth with snaps, no prefolds.ReplyDelete
I've never used a snappi or any other diaper fastener. I did finally just purchase some, though, and I'm very excited to try it!ReplyDelete
I love my snappi! I had no idea that's what those loops were for though, haha! Thanks for the additional info. My loops have always ripped, but my snappi works just fine without them.ReplyDelete
I have used diaper pins and much prefer the snappi.ReplyDelete
I have a friend who is planning on cloth diapering and this looks like a great baby shower gift. Thanks for the review!ReplyDelete
I tried using a Snappi when we first started cloth but I was never comfortable with it. We had really thin flats and I was afraid of hurting the baby with the teeth. I've been considering trying again as a friend gave me some toddler sized flats recently but i need to get a cover still.ReplyDelete
