Converting Velcro to Snaps

Ok I have Velcro Diapers I want to convert to snaps.... Do I need to stabilize the snaps and if so with what?? I already did one and was looking on a site that I could send them off to and she said Kawaiis need to be stabilized.... What snaps do y'all prefer... I got the ones at JoAnnes but there almost $4 a diaper!! Sheesh I could pay someone for that price!

I don't know about stabilizing but I would look at KAM snaps for the snaps themselves.

Re: Converting Velcro to Snaps

The JoAnn snaps are garbage and I would ruin about 1/3 of the ones I tried. I bought these and got rid of my JoAnns one. http://kidsinthegarden.com/shop/inde...oducts_id=2859

I'd say it depends if you're going through both the inner and outer layer. If yes, I wouldn't double up the stabilizer, but if just the outer PUL I would.

Are you talking about plastic snaps or the metal on like onesies? I think gal I got mama stuff from said the snap attacher wasn't bad in price but the link previous gal put i could see being more.

Re: Converting Velcro to Snaps

I purchased this set of pliers, and then I buy different KAM snaps on ebay (whoever has a good price). I read so many bad reviews of the ones from Joann's that I researched and found this. Love it so far, and the only time I have a ruined snap has been from user error.
