Testing my Pinning skills WDYT?

Well I haven't pinned a PF really since about a month into our CDing.

I found the snappis and never looked back.

But I'm going to be doing basically ALL PF's and flats and I'm going to have to pin.

So I've been using pins all day. I'm not sure I'll be able to do it.

WDYT? I feel like it's not right for some reason not as tight as when I snappi.

I think it looks fine. the thing with pins is the prefold will get looser over time as it stretches. with snappis the snappi would contract and take up the slack. I prefer pinning- you just want it to be very snug at first

Okay thanks

I'll keep trying to get it as tight as possible.

Looks like you've been pinning for years! Good job! I HAVE to use a cover or my toddlers diaper starts to sag wether we pin or snappi.

Re: Testing my Pinning skills WDYT?

Amy i have found that i get a fit that stays tighter with otehr folds like the bikini twist or angel wing because my jelly roll tends to come unrolled over time thus making it not snugh.

Well the flats I want snappis don't work as well on them.

Also I want to use wool wrap covers over PF's & Flats and I think they just work better with Pins.
