I have been CDing with mostly prefolds for 6 1/2 years and I suck at pins! I can pin but it.takes me multiple tries and I don't trust the containment lol. Snappis are my friend! I do know what you mean about squishing boy bits though and my suggestion would be to add a doubler. I find this works great :-)

That would help yeah I fold down the rise in the back so there's not much fabric in the front to protect his boy bits
