Does anyone actually pin a flat?

Lately I've been reading alot of post on flats and it seems like everyone pad (or otherwise) folds them. Does anyone pin/snappi/bongo them on?

Re: Does anyone actually pin a flat?

I am sure there are some who do, but I don't know how mainstream it is. I have flats for pocket inserts, and have only truly folded up a flat into the shape and used a pin to fasten it if I'm in the mood to feel crafty and industrious, lol. It happens once every few months...then I realize how much work it is, decide to never do it again, and start to love my pockets.

I personally don't pin, but there are a lot of mamas on here that do, and I mean a lot. There are whole threads dedicated to it.

I did before I was halfway into this pregnancy, so maybe about a year? I stopped pinning and started using a snappi, then started trifolding. I stopped using flats all together in the last month because I got tired of the folding. I know I'll pick it back up again in a few months once this one gets here (in 11 days!!!) because I absolutely love how trim they are when pinned.

I don't pin, but I do snappi! I LOVE the origami fold. I prefer things pinned/snappied/boingod because it hopls the poo so much better for my LO.

I pin or snappi flats. I don't like padfolding they always bunch up on me.

We snappi flats. I don't have the patience to learn to pin.

That is amusing from a person that has the patience to fold a flat

I padfold. I used a snappi when DD was a newborn though.

I folded them (and pinned or snappied) until my kids outgrew them. We have Osocozy flats which are really small so after a while they don't fit Origami folded on them. Now we just use them in pockets or padfold.
