When using certain cloth diaper styles, you might want a separate fastener. Our family uses fasteners on fitteds (for size skipping), prefolds and flats. Since trying both Snappi and Boingo fasteners, we have found that they each have their uses and place in our stash.
Because of the differences between the two fasteners, we have developed a system for when to use each. Due to the plastic gripper coming off the Snappi, we have stopped using it while coverless. We feel safe using the Boingo for going coverless because it grips really strong and it doesn't have any pieces that can be swallowed. Even if the Boingo came off the diaper, the worst that could happen is a bad scratch. Since the Boingo grips better, we prefer to use it under a wool or fleece cover.
For the Snappi, we use it with a wrap style cover. It's especially good with fitteds that have snaps because the stretchiness makes it easier to go around the snaps. The Snappi is also a bit thinner, so it's nice for at night when we use a bulky diaper.
For LO #2 due in a few weeks, we are planning on trying both styles. We're not sure if he will be chubby enough to fit a Snappi. But he might be too chubby for a single Boingo! We have both ready so we're prepared.
