Snappis: not as easy as they look

So I attempted my first snappi tonight. My 2 yo was not impressed.

I have watched several videos where they use snappis and they make it look so easy!!!

Guess I need more practice!!!

I didn't have much luck either. Even my 3 month old looked at me like I'd lost my mind! Lol

Try boingos! They're so much better, easier, and faster.

Keep trying! My 5yo can snappi a prefold (it's not always pretty but it gets the job done!).

At first I was like these things suck!! But some tips I learned is to make sure the first side is anchored well, really pull and stretch it to the other side. Then pull the middle down.

The key for me was to really stretch it across and make sure the first side is well anchored otherwise you wont be able to stretch it across well. Now I love them!!

oh my, I could never get the boingos to work!!

OP - make sure you've pulled your snappi out a bunch before you start using it, it will be come more pliable and easier to work with. I basically only anchor the top pieces, I do the lower leg very very loose because otherwise my son pitches a fit, so I think that part can be uncomfortable.

you should se me with pins

snappis are awkward at first, for sure. And slow. But after you do it a few times, you'll be super fast!
