Unhappy Agh! Darn Boingos!

I split my thumb open on a Boingo today. Aren't they supposed to be better than Snappis for that? I've never hurt myself with a snappi.

Boo. Insert pout here.

Re: Agh! Darn Boingos!

Probably a year ago I tried a boingo for the first time. I snagged my thumb and it hurt so much I never used them again and got rid of them! As I've read different things over the last year I realized I was trying to stretch it on (like the snappi) rather then just place it on. I was also getting annoyed with the snappi because the middle hook never would stay hooked.

So I tried the boingos again this week and "placed" it on with out pulling or stretching and I love them! They go on much easier then I was trying to do last time. Maybe try just pressing it into the diaper. I can't believe the difference!

Re: Agh! Darn Boingos!

I once sliced my finger open with a snappi. I went to pick it up off the floor, and the teeth on one end were caught on the carpet. When I grapped and pulled the other end, a tooth ripped through my finger. I had DD at the doctor a day or two later and the cut was so bad she noticed it on my finger and commented!

It's the sharp plastic teeth on both of them :-(

Re: Agh! Darn Boingos!

Bah! Well I would probably manage to hurt myself more with pins, so I guess I'll just try to be more careful.
