After six weeks of trying, I FINALLY got a prefold Snappi'ed on DD.

No more tri-folding for this mama now that I can do a bikini twist. **struts**

Next attempt: pinning.

My DH now thinks I'm a dork because I'm so pleased with myself.

I ordered more CPFs to celebrate!

Woo hoo! I want to go on a Snapi Crusade so that everone may love their Snappi!

BTW, I share your daughter's birthdate! Leos are #1!
I just got a Snappi this week too. I am so in

And I am with you on being so wildly impressed with myself for doing the bikini twist.
The diaper fits so so so much better than just trifolding into the cover.

I am
for not trying this earlier!!!!!

Should we start the Snappi crusade?

I'm about to get my 1st snappi -- in my expected fluffy mail package!! What do you wish you had known about snappi-ing technique that you now know? does it really take 6 weeks to master?

And tell me about bikini twists - do they only stay put if snappi-ed?
Tracey, I think it took me six weeks because I'm horribly uncoordinated. :LOL

Make sure you stretch the heck out of it before using it. That was one of my biggest problems. I couldn't understand why this thing wouldn't stretch across my little one's belly when I've seen pictures of toddlers with Snappi'ed CPFs.

I'm assuming that the bikini twist is pretty much Snappi-only. It creates form-fitting leg holes and isn't really bulky at all when held together with the almighty Snappi.

Good luck!

Wow, you guys are inspiring me! I've been the queen of the snappi until now (at least I thought I was! hehe). As soon as dd wakes up from her nap I'm gonna try the bikini twist.

Tracey-I was able to snappi my first try (and that is on a wiggly almost 11 mo old). So I am sure you will be able to master it

I just looked at some pictures on the web (check out all the folds at Karen's site...she is using a snappi

I started off with the newspaper fold and then tried the bikini twist. Both are so much better than trifolding into the cover!

OK, I've finally been inspired to break out the Snappi I bought months ago! It's still in the package.
Wish me luck!
