    Talking Photos - Pre-folds and new covers

    Bear got some new wool wraps yesterday, and I just couldn't help but take a photo for you ladies, since so many are seemingly interested in cloth diapering now !

    First, this is Bear today - 11½ weeks old - in a premium unbleached indian prefold.




    And secondly, one of his new wool wraps. This is a medium knit wool wrap from Sugar Peas. It's on over the prefold in the previous picture.




    And ladies - I'm sorry that these aren't up to my usual photo standards. Just some quick snapshots this morning with very minimal post-editing.

    It's call a snappi. It's much easier to use than safety pins.

    CUTE!!! I can't believe he wears a premium- wow! You're good tho- the fit is perfect.

    We LOVE Sugar Peas wool covers!!

    Here's info on the Snappi- just remember it should always be covered with a cover. I always used Dritz pins if Zane was coverless.

    It's called a Snappi. It's got little teeth that hook into the diaper to keep it done up. Much easier than pins.

    He's been in premiums for about a month now - lots of growing room in them. He was "cracking" out of his infants by 5 weeks old.

    And I'm bad - I don't always use a cover with the Snappi. At least not this young.

    He's so cute and chunky. Love the cover!
    just remember it should always be covered with a cover.
    I left my 20 mos old son then without a cover because I was back in Puerto Rico and it was a hot day for DS, well he was climbing out of the side of the sofa and the middle part of the snappi got stuck, broke and hit him on his belly leaving a mark for days, the side parts didn't come apart. Now if I want to leave him without a cover I put regular undies on top.

    Cute pics!!!! And cute baby...

    We didn't care for the snappis either but I know of a couple of people who kept using them. I may have posted this before but there's a cloth-diapering board on mothering.com with cloth diaper fanatics - like folks here are about car seats!

    http://www.mothering.com/discussions...play.php?f=221

    You may be aware of it but thought I'd throw it out there...

    Re: Photos - Pre-folds and new covers

    Okay, y'all, I clicked the link for the snappi thing (because I didn't know what the heck it was either...I thought perhaps it was the newest trend in baby jewelry...heh). And I came across the warning :

    WARNING:ALWAYS use a cover when using a Snappi® fastener on your baby's diaper. Keep out of children's reach when not in use! Do not use your Snappi® for longer than 6 months. Do not leave your Snappi® lying in the sun as it is not UV resistant and can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi®.
    Which makes sense, given what I read further in the thread about the thing coming off and hurting the kiddo. But when I read it, all I could think was... "Do not taunt the Snappi..."

    (I have the full text for the happy fun ball thing, somewhere, in an book. Yep. I'm a dork. lol)
    apparently, people put stuff here.

    Re: Photos - Pre-folds and new covers

    Okay, I'm a bad snappi parent. I have about two dozen of the things, because I bought them new in package for a buck each (pack of two). Since they are normally $4-5, I snappied em up

    I don't use them. We don't use prefolds that often, and when I do I prefer pins anyway. But Charlie LOVES the Snappis. So he carries them around and plays with them. Bad idea? Probably. But he's never unsupervised, so I'm not that worried.

    BTW- Remember my problem with him loosening his harness? I tried to snappi the cover closed... it didn't work, not enough fabric to grab. But it was my first thought on the problem!

    Yikes ! The teeth on those things are SHARP ! And they come out of the plastic part quite easily.

    I'm glad he's always watched, and in such good hands, or I just might be tempted to get worried about those as play toys.

    Re: Photos - Pre-folds and new covers

    Zane's Snappi ripped open my thigh. I never let him go coverless with one again. It HURT!

    They're great for quick, easy changes. Just have to be cautious.

    Wow! Zane didn't outgrow infants until around 9-10 months if i pinned them. Then I went to regulars. premiums just have to much bulk for me.

    CUTE baby!!

    Re: Photos - Pre-folds and new covers

    My snappie trick. I cut off the bottom snappi part as it is the one that gets caught. Then I let my kid have fun coverless. Not as snug but it gets the job done without the snags. Of course I haven't cut my new ones yet and this morning we got dad's new pants.
