These are AMAZING for my enormous little guy! When he hit 9 months or so (and 31 pounds!) snappis weren't big enough to go across his giant belly, so we got these and some toddler size snappis, and these won hands down! It also keeps the pressure off of his fat pocket "down there" that had a near constant rash with the snappis. With using preforms nearly exclusively, one pair only lasts us 3-4 months, but it's worth it!

Not perfect, but worked better for us than snappis
Snappis weren't working for my chubby baby and he seemed uncomfortable with them pulling so tightly across his lower abdomen (maybe he wasn't, but it made ME uncomfortable!). The Boingo fastener works pretty well, except when trying to pull it tight to attach, I really wish there was a loop or extra tab of some kind. I always end up reaching my fingers too close to the teeth. One time my baby initiated a roll just as I was trying to pull the fastener across and the teeth dug into my finger and tore some skin... ouch! Other than that one design flaw though, they do seem a lot more sensible than the Snappis, at least for us.

First I'll say that I tried really really hard to love the Snappi, but in the end we just couldn't work out our differences...I use flat diapers because they're cheap and durable, yay! However, the teeth on the Snappi went through the diaper deep enough to bite my baby :( I've never been able to get the hang of pins, but hey, there are worse problems to have...I gave the Boingos a shot and I'm basically in love! They're snug, cute, and the hubs likes 'em too!

I tested these out and they seem to work just as directed. Heard some stories about Snappies so I decided to try Boingo first. I believe boingo is more versatile and I see no difference.

So much better than a Snappi. The Snappi hooked several times on my baby's boy bits. It also pinched his tummy in order to get it tight enough not to sag. The Boingo does have a learning curve, but after you get the hang of it, it is the best fastener there is.
