My LO is 6 months old and has thus far been pretty happy in sposies. I don't love the idea of diapering baby in something reusable and was sort of pushed into it because Daniel has been wetting pretty heavily at night and leaking through his Pampers. So I went out to my local cloth diaper store and bought two diapers: a FuzziBunz OS and a Thirsties Duo pocket in size medium. I also bought some hemp doublers since I was told they would be best at night. So far I've been super pleased with them. I only had one leak, and though it was pretty substantial, I think I might not have closed them up tight enough on his tummy. So I went out today to try and get some more. And this is where the trouble began.
I already had some really high quality prefolds that I've been using as burp cloths so I went to the store I bought them at and the woman showed me how to fold them like diapers, use a Snappi and put them into a Bummis Superbright cover. I couldn't really get the Snappi to work right (it wouldn't catch the fabric) and the folding was really intimidating. I bought it all anyway because I figured I could get it right at home, but alas, I cannot. What am I missing here? Is there a way to use the prefolds without having to snappi them? My husband is already freaked out by all the snaps on the FB's, I don't know how he's ever going to get the hang of these folding diapers. He'd really prefer we use something like gDiapers or Flip.
