Great Video! I have two Snappis for my prefolds and this video would've been great when I was learning how to use them the correct way. It took me a good two or three times each diaper change for about a week to realize what I was doing wrong.

this is awesome! i'm seriously considering using prefolds when #2 is an infant and the snappi seems the way to go. Thanks for the tutorial!

Those look way easier than pins! If we have any more kids, I plan to use prefolds at the newborn stage and I will definately need to get one of these!

The McDougles said...

Thank you so much for this video! I'm wanting to tackle prefolds and snappis when my newborn comes and this really helps with knowing how to use them!

Elizabeth said...

So embarressing...I watched this video and realized that I had been folding the incorrect way this whole time!!! The snappis were correct but no wonder I have been cleaning up so many messes.

MaryAnne said...

Great video, I've been wondering how snappis work!

Ally said...

Wonderful video!!

Andrea said...

Love the bloopers!

Thank you for a great demonstration. We just started using a snappi here this week and it was a lot easier than I had anticipated. We're planning on using it with baby #3 due here in about 3 weeks.

Question: What about boys? Does it smash there little boy parts? It looks as though it would. Thanks.

Snappis are wonderful! I recently picked up a second Snappi, this time in blue... Our first one was white, and it kept getting lost in the diaper pile!

Wow. That looks so do-able that I may have to rethink my anti-prefolds stance. Thanks!

Ilyas is so cooperative, and so darling!

#1 - So cool to finally put a voice w/ the name & face.

#2 - Thank you for making the video. I have always wondered what a snappie was and how people used them. :)

Andrea: Your question gave both Kelly and I quite a chuckle!

No, the Snappi will not smash little boy parts. It simply grips the outer portion of the prefold (or fitted/contour) diaper and doesn't really apply any pressure in the boys "netherlands."

I am not a prefold user at all (pocket and aio gal) but this makes me want to give prefolds a try. The video makes it seem so simple. Yes, hosiewosie, I second that Ilyas is very darling..and handsome too!

Kelly said...

Very educational for those who haven't ever used a Snappi before. And I love the bloopers reel at the end.

A Psych Mommy said...

We love using a Snappi--I probably wouldn't have touched a prefold without one. Good video--I'm a visual learner I would have loved to have seen this when I first started.

Cathy said...

Thanks for this. It's a new way to fold the diaper for me.

great video! i love snappis :)

Great video! I still havent tried prefolds on my 5 month old but they are easy to get on my 21 month old.

Laura W. said...

Thank you for this! I'm still a little unsure about prefolds because I was worrying that I wouldn't be able to fold them right, but watching them get folded made it seem much easier than I was imagining.

Kate Wangsgard said...

Thanks for the video. I'm going to have to try them now.

Becky said...

I have been so curious to see how Snappi's work, I've heard that they're better than pins, but I am one of those who was scared off by pre-folds...so glad to see it's not to hard if I want to try w/ #2 :)

Christina C. said...

Thanks for the video! I have ventured into prefolds just last week and there is no way I would have if not for Snappi's- huge pins that close to my kiddo's body freak me out!!

Slee said...

This is a great video, and it makes me want even more to try snappis! Awesome. And can I say there is a certain amount of hilarious associated with diapering a LO in undies? I get why, but it's still funny!
