Boingo diaper fasteners get an A+ for ease of use. I was able to fasten a pair on a squirmy toddler with just one hand the first time I ever tried them (the other hand was holding the camera). Doesn’t get much easier than that!
There are a few things you should know about Boingo:
You need to stretch them a little before you first use them. Grab them by the rubbery part just inside the stars and stretch gently.
The goal is not to stretch the boingo to fasten the diaper like you would to fasten a snappi. Very little stretching is necessary
Do not pull on them by the little stars. It seems like a logical place to grab and stretch the Boingo, but overstretching can damage it
The teeth are grabby and pointy. They are a bit less grabby and pointy than a snappi’s teeth, but they’re still sharp
If you have a tiny baby, you can use just one boingo instead of two
How to Fasten a Boingo
The diaper fold I used below is a very sloppy newspaper fold. The prefold I am using is a trimmed prefold, so I didn’t have to fold it down in the front at all. My model is 20 months old.
Hook the teeth of the boingo into the fabric on the diaper near the baby’s hip
Gently pull the boingo at a downward angle toward the center of the diaper. Remember to hold the boingo towards the center and not by the star.
Remember, do not grab the boingo by the star (like I am in the pic below)
Sit back and admire your work for a second. Even a sloppy newspaper fold turns out ok once it’s all fastened up!
