LOL honestly the ONLY time I've poked myself is pinning my OBV stuff sense it's harder for pins to go through that. Mine just slide through my flats and my CPF.

The rainbow shorts seem to be a thicker weave. I have the hardest time getting pins in them too!

Re: Pinning challenge! :D

My Mom told me back in the day when I had DS 1 16 years ago, to stick the pins in a bar of soap when you are'nt using them and they slide in easier. It works too! I just started trying to pin again today. I am so out of practice! Her diaper was falling off! LOL!

Re: Pinning challenge! :D

I got the nice pins and gave it a 2 day try...and gave it up. However, I can getting some Rita's Rump Pocket Fitteds and those can be pinned with a single pin in front...so I will be giving it another go...albeit an easier one!

Re: Pinning challenge! :D

Oh my! I just read through this thread last night and watched the video on how to pin. I had NO idea it would come in handy just a few short hours later!!!

DS has the *worst* diarrhea today. He has been battling a stomach bug since Saturday, but so far it has been throwing up and a low fever. Today, he just exploded in his diapers!! I mean the totally liquid, runny poo that gets forcefully expelled and just explodes the diaper

Well, I was using ONLY my pins, not even looking at my Snappis and put into practice all the things I have learned on here. So far, my prefolds were always hopeless, while I was getting rather good at my flats.

Well, today I ROCK!! I mean, tight leg gussets, and not a single molecule of DS's poo escaped my diapers! The wool covers are still untouched! That has never happened before, and today time after time (and I am changing him constantly 3-4 times before he is done pooping for a bit)

I will now go and give myself a pat on the back.

Oh, and everybody who contributed to this thread of course
