How To Fasten A Tinkle Trap Prefitted

So you're about to place an order for Tinkle Traps prefolds-converted-to-fitteds? And you're thinking you might like snaps or Aplix (velcro) closures? Here I'm going to show you why you'll like no-closure Tinkle Traps so much more! If you choose to have the prefold rise trimmed, you'll have a trimmer fit. But if you leave the length of the prefold, you can fold down the excess and they should fit well into Toddlerhood.

Here to demonstrate is our dolly Meaghan. And my assistant Kellie will be pointing out the important parts to remember.

Step 1: Locate a Tinkle Trap and a Snappi

***SAFETY NOTE! Snappis are an amazing invention that make cloth diapering a wiggly baby so much easier for new cloth diapering parents. Please be sure to cover your Snappi'ed diaper with a secure cover. Those little hooks can hurt!***

Mom! Let's put this one on her!

If you are like me and embrace the hip puddle, you can pin a Tinkle Trap to go coverless around the house. Kellie has volunteered to model her Tinkle Traps.
