I’m not the first blogger to be chatting about the RETURN OF THE SIZE 2 SNAPPI, and I won’t be the last. If you’re anything like me, you were probably pretty stoked to hear the Size 2 Snappi would be restocking and returning to the cloth diaper marketplace.
I received product and/or compensation for this post.
Why does this matter? Because for some time the Size 2 Snappi has only been a tale of legends told by moms who once got their hands on this life-changing product and think it’ll work for your chunky baby and prefold cloth diapers (or flat diapers). If like me, you went searching for this product and found it hard to come by, you’ll be excited to find it quickly at retailers and Amazon. SnappiBaby is bringing back the Size 2 Snappi.
What’s a Snappi?
A Snappi is a stretchy cloth diaper fastener to secure a prefold, flat, or fitted cloth diaper. With three sets of prongs, the teeth of the Snappi grab onto loose cotton fabrics with ease (and struggle with higher weaves). Made of non-toxic materials in 5 colours, the Snappi is a must have cloth diaper accessory.
Snappi is found in a standard size 1, but now a Size 2 Snappi is available. This bigger, better Snappi is ideally suited to bigger babies and growing toddlers. The Snappi is available in packs of 3 or 5 at SnappiBabyUSA.com and amazon.com.
What’s the Deal with Size 2?
The deal is the Size 2 Snappi offers a little more room to fold on a prefold cloth diaper or flat cloth diaper.
As a mom of chunky babies, I remember when my first maxed out the Snappi. I began to look at other fasteners, but none of them quite compared to the Snappi! The pull-down middle helps secure the prefold or flat cloth diaper in place. I never quite mastered the Boingo or the Diaper Pin the same as I do with a Snappi.

My Take on the Size 2 Snappi
I love it.
Honestly, I’m a little surprised the Size 2 Snappi is not bigger. I was expecting it to be bigger.
With flats, the Size 2 Snappi works great on my toddlers. With prefold diapers, a Size 2 Snappi also works great. He is a toddler and stopped cooperating for photos.
I also loved how it works on my baby. She’s not tiny, but at a chunky 18 pounds, it was a great fit. I would wager if you needed a cloth diaper fastener and your child was 15 pounds plus, only look a the size 2 Snappi.
Why do I need a Snappi to cloth diaper my Toddler?
This is a good question. Very seldom do I use a folded flat with my toddler because I believe pad folding cloth diapers is the way to go.
HOWEVER, Nighttime cloth diapering is a challenge, and a pad folded night time cloth diaper is MASSIVELY bulky and uncomfortable. However, if you fold and layer flats, refolds and inserts, you distribute the absorbency and get a trimmer fit. Then you need a fastener, and then you need a size 2 Snappi.
Snappi also works great in snap-less fitted diapers, flats under wool (like these stylish HumBird Flats my kids are wearing in the photos), and for just bumming around the house.
PS. Safely secure your Snappi after use. This way if it accidently finds its way into a load of laundry it wont destroy your diapers. #noexperiencenecessary #farewellSeirenpski
