Snappis are dangerous

I had gotten a snappi so that i could just put a prefold on my son during the day and save the aio's and fitteds for the night. Well, I just now heard my son screaming and ran into the bedroom tro see what wrong, I was thinking that the Wiggles video maybe had stopped, He was standing in the middle of the room with his back to the door, the prefold was hanging down in the back and the snappi was stuck to the floor with the bottom middle clasp and the 2 top ends were still stuck on the diaper, so he was stuck there!!He could not go anywhere. Poor thing. Luckily he did not get hurt.

Ah, the dreaded snappi attack! If DS ever goes coverless, I use pins.

Re: Snappis are dangerous

awwwww. Poor little guy! My dd got stuck to a beanbag chair once, when I had a snappi on her...needless to say, she was not happy. Just make sure he has a cover on next time, so he doesn't get snagged

Re: Snappis are dangerous

We have had Snappis get hung up on things, like our couch, but no one's ever got hurt. I prefer to use them with covers over, and use pins when coverless.

The instructions on the snappi package say not to use without a cover. I love them but will not use them without a cover. I did once and my DD unhooked the snappi and punctured her finger.

This is all so good to know for when DS gets a little older & mobile.

Re: Snappis are dangerous

We love our snappis! But when we first got them they got caught on EVERYTHING (except dd, amazingly) so now when I pack them I just make sure they're separate from any other material. And I think they're a little sharp, too! Especially for something used on a baby...

Re: Snappis are dangerous

Yeah, my DD got her Snappi caught on the couch the other day. I just tried pins for the first time today...they worked OK but I need to figure out how to get a more snug fit with them! Practice, I guess

Re: Snappis are dangerous

Snappis should always be used with a cover. It is one thing for LOs to get stuck, but those things can become un-stuck and snap against the skin like a rubber band with teeth!!!!!
We always use a cover with a snappi, if DD is coverless we use pins.
