I cannot pin!

Hello ladies. Any advice for pinning prefolds, flas, or snapless? I've tried and I can't see my to get the pin through the cloth. I usually give up quickly because I'm worried ill poke my squirmy LO.

I usually end up resorting to a snappi or boingo.

Run it through your hair or keep the pins stuck in a bar of soap. The slickness of your hair oils or the soap will help it slide right through the fabric.

This is what I was going to say. I always run pins through my hair, even when sewing.
