Thread: Got Cloth diapers and Plastic Pants, no pins. Help!

  1. #1

    Default Got Cloth diapers and Plastic Pants, no pins. Help!

    I finally managed to purchase some plastic pants and a cloth diaper, but my pins never arrived, and to make matters worse, the pins I did order turned out to be too small. I live with my parents, so I can't just ask them to get me diaper pins.

    For all intents and purposes, I have everything BUT the pins.

    Is there any way for me to improvise?

    Could I just wear the diaper folded up inside the plastic pants and call it a day?

    you should be able to go down to your drug store are sewing shop and get regular safe pins with out the safety locks. I use them when I have broken mine and used them until I got new diaper pins.

    You could also getting ribbons or shoelaces or the such and tying them on snuggly. I've done it before, and it works great it not super active. However, as they get soggy, they will droop very much

    You can buy some from most pharmacies or chemists. Also Coles has them available for just $2 a pack in their sewing section.

    For pins, as foxkits says, try to get yourself to a fabric store. Most carry the ultra-popular line of Dritz-brand fasteners, which include diaper pins. And I think the Dritz diaper pins are some of the best. They're much sturdier and will last longer than the ones AdultClothDiaper sells.

    But simply tri-folding your diaper and laying it down the middle of your plastic pants can work--if we're talking a Velcro or snap-on cover, as the pull-ons tend to be a lot baggier.

    ...although it sounds like you found a non-pin approach already, so great!

    What kind of a monster ships the diapers and back-orders the pins? That's like giving a kid a toy for chirstmas and forgetting the batteries!

    You can order Boingo fasteners or Snappi fasteners, they are an easier method for the cloth diaper newbie.
