Boingo Fasteners for Cloth Diapers Review
Mallory Menegay
Boingo Baby

We have been successfully cloth diapering since our little guy was one month old. Now, 14 months in, my time in researching this topic seems to be a close second to our switch to organic and clean eating. I did some digging into the best closure tools for cloth diapers that use a cover (basically anything other than the pocket 319479363and all-in-one style diapers). We mostly use pre-folds and flour sack towels with covers and pocket diapers. I settled on the Snappi, but the Boingo was a close second.

I was given the opportunity to use the Boingo fasteners from Katie here at BurritoBuzz and was excited to try them! In all honesty, the first few times using them, I hated it. I was used to the convenience of the little tabs on the Snappi, and really fought with the Boingo to get it off of the diaper. I do not like to touch a pee soaked diaper if I don’t have to, and the Boingo fasteners definitely make me do that. Yuck. There may be some trick to getting them off, but if there is, I haven’t found it.

I kept using them to see if I could find a good technique that worked for us, and they began to grow on me.

The fasteners come in a wide range of colors and are very stable and sturdy. Being so thick, they are harder to maneuver, and I prefer the Snappi over them for this reason. They are one size and come in a pack of two, so you can use one fastener for smaller babies and two for bigger areas. This is nice, because comparing this to my use of the Snappi, the convenience factor is greater (Snappi’s come in sizes, so you have to buy more as baby grows). The prongs on the Boingo seem to grip better than the Snappi, and hold on great. The non-toxic, medical grade silicone covers the BPA-free hard plastic parts well, so there hasn’t been any rubbing or poking on baby’s skin for us.

Overall, I’ll continue to use them, and I do like them more now than when I first gave them a try, but would recommend them hands down if they were adjusted a little to make them easier to get off of the cloth!

SnoofyBee {Review}

If you’re a parent, you know how difficult changing a diaper can be. If you’re a new mom or dad, you’re in for a surprise when baby starts moving and fighting each and every diaper snoofybeechange, because it will happen. Be it a baby or toddler, he or she will try and get away or try and grab the wipes, dirty diaper (that’s fun!), their private areas or anything they can get their grubby hands on. It makes for a huge mess if they get a hold of that diaper! So not only do you have to clean their bottoms, you have to clean their hands and everything else they touched (like their face – gross). So what can you do other than strapping them in a straight jacket (possibly illegal)? Meet the SnoofyBee, the 3-in-1 Clean Hands Changing Pad.

This is the most amazing and innovative changing pad I have ever seen and used! It’s design is so unique and it really does work! Here’s how:changing-pad-citrus-3-in-1-clean-hands-changing-pad-7

During the diaper change, baby is distracted by a soft barrier, therefore keeping their nosey little hands free of their dirty diaper and their private areas. It lays flat and folds right back up into a compact portable clutch. It is so easy to fold up, you can literally do it with one hand, which is often all we have to work with! It’s a diaper clutch, changing pad and play mat all in one!

This product has been great with our new little one but I know I will get much more use out of it in the future. My oldest was a hellion when it came to diaper changes the older she got, the SnoofyBee would have been a Godsend with her! The only thing I would change is the price point. At $29.99 (on sale from $34.99), the price is a little steep for me. With this changing pad, there’s no need to hold your little one down or need both parents to tag team for a diaper change. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars because it does what it’s supposed to! It works and makes diaper changes a breeze while also keeping little hands clean. I guess I can send back the baby straight jacket I ordered! 😉

La Petite Crème {Product Review}

Until recently, I didn’t know that French moms don’t use baby wipes. Instead, they use a diaper lotion that cleanses and also protects tiny bottoms. I found La Petite Crème on Instagram a few months ago and I couldn’t wait to imagetry their product when my baby was born. Founded by 2 French natives and mothers, Franny and Cecile, La Petite Crème aims to fight diaper rash naturally. Free of parabens, talc, petrolatum, fragrances and hypoallergenic makes it a safe choice for babies with even the most sensitive skin.

It’s so easy to apply, too. After shaking well, apply to a cotton pad or wash cloth and cleanse diaper area and you’re done! No need to imagerinse off. La Petite Crème keeps harmful chemicals away from your baby’s delicate skin while also keeping baby wipes out of the landfill. Since I started using it on my 5 week old, she has yet to have any type of diaper rash or even the slightest redness. A little goes a long way as well so the bottle can last a good amount of time which will save you money. And it’s completely safe to use on cloth diapers! All in all, this imageproduct is fantastic. I am so glad I found them, I’m so happy to share them with our readers! Check out their website here to learn more and to order!
