We have no issues with Boingo's, they hold the best for us. We always have things coming loose with a Snappi though and as much as I try, pins are a nightmare for me. We use them with flats, prefolds, and WH. My DD's been wearing them with flats all day today either coverless or with pull on wool covers, she's 15 mo.

Re: boingo staying put?

My baby is not even mobile yet and I have that problem with my boingos... I've had better luck fastening them like a side snapping diaper (with the front flap over the back flaps) but it still doesn't seem as secure as with my snappis.

Re: boingo staying put?

My LO is only 4 months but I love my Boingos and prefer them to the Snappi. They stay put everytime. Maybe stretch them a little more? Do u have the newer ones made of silicone (I think)?

Actually I have the same stay out prob. It works better if I stretch a LOT and try fastening side snap style, but these put holes in my prefolds! Not sure what I'm doing wrong here...

I wanted to really like my Boingos, and I was really supportive of Stacey when she was getting slammed on here about a year ago about the delayed shipment of all the preorders.... but I decided I was officially done with them when I asked them on FB about holes in my pre-folds and the response was pretty much that I was doing something wrong and that they would "go away" after laundering... which they didn't. All I really wanted to know was if the teeth were the same on the new version as the old, but after being treated like an idiot, I didn't even bother trying the new.

Re: boingo staying put?

mine stay put on our WHs. I do find they leave snags/marks in my WHs, even after washing/drying. But compared to the snappi, I prefer Boingos. I am not able to get a good fit with pins on our WHs, thought I'm sure I could get better with practice.
