does anyone here convert BG OS to snaps?

Interested in knowing how much this would run and if I'd get leaks on the front part of the diaper from doing this. Thanks pm or post

There are a few . . . but it is pricey! I am thinking of doing a few. My velcro is shot after 20+ mos.

Re: does anyone here convert BG OS to snaps?

I think it generally runs a little over $3 a diaper plus shipping both ways, unless you can find someone near you who has a snap press. I ended up just buying my own snap pliers from kamsnaps.com, but I can understand why it costs that much, in fact it should cost more between the labor and the cost of the snap parts themselves! It took me a good 2 hours to do my first one, but less for each subsequent diaper as I'm figuring them out better.

Tinkle Traps does them for $1.75 per dipe (plus shipping), 10% off for 12 or more. Shipping isn't so bad since pockets without inserts are so light. HTH

I am thinking of getting the pliers too...have you tried out the newly snapped diaper? Does it leak from the snaps? Do you find that it works just fine, good fit and stuff?

thanks!

Re: does anyone here convert BG OS to snaps?

I LOVE the newly snapped diapers! No leaks from the snaps at all, and I used one overnight. I did 2 rows of snaps, and the fit is a little strange on the first few I did, but once I realized I could offset the bottom snap on the tab, that fixed it for me! So on my tabs the snaps look like this (edited to make the diagram work, ignore the underlines and imagine the asterisks are the snaps and the lines in the middle are the edges of the tabs where they meet when the diaper is closed):

___* | | *___
*___ | | ___*

I made sure I measured the tab snaps against the already placed snaps on the tummy so the bottom one would be one over from the top one. I hope that makes sense, if not I will try to post a pic tomorrow.
