Side snapping diapers?? Whats the secret?

Ok so everytime I try to put the grovia AIOs on my son I pinch him, or have to snap them and re-snap them a few times to get them right! I want to love these, they are super absorbent and trim, but I'm a dummy when it comes to the side snaps!

Snap the bottom snap first, one hand under the snap flap, then do the top snap. you should have no problem fitting your fingers under tha snap. I have almost all side snapping dipes. I love them, they have a better trimmer fit IMO. My husband used to do the same thing Until I showed him how I did it, He hasn't pinched our babe in about 9 months now! lol!

Yeah bottom snap first.... I don't find them any harder and I strongly prefer the fit. Especially on my slim kids

Side-snaps are also generally much nicer for babes with chubby thighs, so they're a fave around here.
