Re: Bum Genius snap conversion tutorial

I love this tute! I'm debating whether I should do it now or wait until my LO's are a bit bigger. My BG's are a mess, but my 6 week old twins don't mind! I'm just curious if anyone has an opinion as to how this would affect resale value. I personally don't want to spend a lot of money on a dipe with icky velcro, but the dipes wouldn't be "normal" if we put snaps on them. Just wondering what everyone thinks. If you've already converted your BG's, have you sold them or do you plan to? TIA!

Re: Bum Genius snap conversion tutorial

Late to the game here. Where do you get the snaps? The only ones I've found don't work with pliers and require a press, which isn't worth the $$ for me.

Re: Bum Genius snap conversion tutorial

I have almost 30 BG that my 19 month-old twins have been wearing since birth and this might save them from resale!!

I wondered, though, what about where the velcro strip was removed from the front? Do the little holes go away as the fabric relaxes, or do they get worse and/or snag over time?

And where do I get a snap press and snaps? (Yes, Google is my friend, but I'm feeling lazy right now...)

Thank you!
