Pinning challenge! :D
Has there ever been a pin challenge? So many mamas want to pin, but have a hard time with it. I know that practice makes perfect, so have we had a challenge where we try to use pins with our prefolds for like a week or something?

There was an old-school challenge, but I didn't participate, was that what that was about?

I've been trying to pin as much as possible- and I'm getting better! I think I'm going to have my husband hide my Snappis :giggle: for a week so that I'm forced to use my pins! I can use one pin on my larger prefolds, but I really want to be able to pin with two! So cute!

Anyone else?

I suck at pinning. Plus, I'm so scared that I'll stick him :( I have some BV pfs coming so I need the practice though!

I was really scared at first too. I just put my fingers against her skin to form a wall between the pin and her skin. Sometimes I poke my fingers, but I'll take that over stabbing my baby any day!

I'll play, but only part-time as I use mostly pockets.

Re: Pin challenge?
For some reason, it's easier for me to pin if I put the diaper on backwards. I wonder why that is? The fit is always nice and snug. Here, I even have photographic evidence:
