What's your favorite way to "pin" and why?

I love Boingos. I don't trust safety pins, and Snappis look flimsy. Plus with Snappis, they don't want to stretch as far as I need them to on some of my prefolds. With Boingos, a tiny bit of overlap is all you need. I also use them to attach a prefold as a bib during/after feeding because in my house regular bibs are a joke.

I've never heard of Boingos... I am interested!

Where can you buy them?

I know KBTM and MySweetPickles have them. I bought mine at CottonBabies, and I really like them.

Re: What's your favorite way to "pin" and why?

Pins then snappi. For some reason none of my children have liked the snappi so I just got really good at pinning. If you do it correctly there is really no way to stick the baby. I feel pinning coverless is safer than the snappi and I can get such a great fit. Boingos didn't come out until my 2nd was almost PLed so I haven't used them long enough. I got some for my newbie and he cries when I use them or the snappi. I think it has to do with the pressure on the hips or something so back to pins which I prefer anyway and can do quickly.

I tried boingos first but turns out I prefer the snappi. I find it to be easier to use and it's just one thing to keep track of instead of two.

Re: What's your favorite way to "pin" and why?

I prefer pins. I can get a better fit with them and don't worry about them snapping in two and hurting baby. I started with pins on dd and then with ds1. Then I saw snappis and tried those. I started with snappis with ds2. Now I am back to pins.

I wanted to try the boingos but there were a lot of bad reviews so I held back. Then they came out with the newer ones. Not too long ago though there was a thread with a lot of bad reviews again. Plus really poor customer service. The op on that thread had waited a long time for some promised replacements. I don't know that she ever did get them. Every now and then I am tempted to get some. Then I remember that review and pass on them.

Love the new version boingos!! Especially for my newbie. I don't like risking poking my squirmy newbie with pins nor do i like the third leg of the snappi going across his baby boy bits. I get an awesome fit with the boingos. They hold strong and are easy to use. The first version they put out were trash!

Snappi, just because they are really easy. But I'm trying to get into pins so my kiddo can go around coverless; I'm getting better with more practice if the baby cooperates!

Uh I need to learn how to pin well! I'm trying, but right now I prefer snappis for my toddler, just because it's easy!

I tried snappis with DD #2 and they were hard to work with, so I went to pins and loved them. This time with DS, I found out about boingos and have been using them. So thankful for them because he is so wiggly for diaper changes!
