Snappi® is the smartest and safest diaper fasteners used for holding together flats or prefolds. These have teeth that give a good grip and prevent bunching of flats or prefolds. These are a must-have if you would like to add versatility to the types of folds that you can do to increase the effectiveness of flats/prefolds. Snappi® is made from a stretchable non-toxic material which is T-shaped with grips on each end.These are much easier and much safer to use as compared to diaper pins specially since babies become wriggly as they grow up.
Prepping the Snappi® for use - Stretch the Snappi® by holding it in the center with one hand and with your other hand, grab close to the end of one of the arms, avoiding the sharp teeth, and pull. Do not grab the Snappi® by the loops. Repeat this about 10 times for each arm. You will notice the material begin to soften up and become more elastic. Once you do this for each arm your Snappi® Diaper Fastener is ready for use!
Using the Snappi® - Snappi® can be used in 3 easy steps such that it goes from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.
· Hook Left
· Hook Right
· Pull Down & Hook Centre
Clean Snappi® in hot soapy water. Do not machine wash them with other cloth diaper products or other clothes. Do not expose to prolonged sunlight.
· Any tear in the Snappi® can lead to separation of a piece, presenting a possible choking hazard.
· Do not cut your Snappi® as this could create weak spots in your Snappi®.
· Do not pull on the loops of the Snappi® when attaching, as this can cause breakage. These loops serve as a safety feature only, as explained above. Use the flat, solid tabs for leverage.
· Inspect your Snappi® before each use. Discontinue use immediately if there is any sign of cracking, tearing, breakage or wear of any parts.
