1.  Pins


Yesterday I found my Snappis... misplaced (they were later found).  Fortunately, I happened to have a pair of pins some diaper company had given me with my order.  Unfortunately, I had no idea how to get them to work.  I regret, months ago, my mother beating me to changing my daughter and being bewildered at how to use a Snappi and saying she preferred pins and not asking my mother at that moment how to use them.


So... advice in case this happens again.


2.  To-sell-or-not-to-sell


My daughter just moved up into "medium" size, leaving me with a nice, still-great stash of small prefolds.  I know a perk of cloth is to save them for the next baby, but I don't know if I'll still like prefolds then and we are a bit tight on cash.  What things to consider?

#2 - See how much you prefolds go for locally on craigslist or similar. It's not cost effective to sell them online usually because they are so heavy that shipping often costs a lot. Plus used they may not go for much anyway, that can depend on how much interest there is in your area.


If you decide to keep them you can always use them for other things even if you don't like prefolds, like pocket stuffing, etc.

I felt like my initial investment in diapers was so expensive (well, relatively, still cheaper than 'sposies!!) that part of justifying the cost was using them for more than one kiddo. If you think you might do sposies in the future, sell them, but unless you're going for flats (which are cheaper) you'll be shelling out a lot of money if you switch to aio or fitted diapers, I would have to really hate prefolds to go that way (and I love them)... It seems like a short term minimal gain that will cost a lit in the future... Just my $0.02
