Converting bumGenius Diapers To Snaps!

I have had my bumGenius diapers since Elijah was born 7 months ago. Hook & Loop, especially on diapers (in my opinion) should last longer than that, but unfortunately it hasn't on my bumGenius diapers. I always have a diaper chain (all diapers stuck together via the hook & loop) and it's making them pilly. Finally last night I decided to try converting one of the diapers to snaps to see if I should just convert them all. It worked out great!

 

 


No more diaper chain for us! Keep in mind if you decide to do this it will void any warranty you have on your bumGenius diapers. If anybody wants to convert their diapers to snaps but doesn't have a snap press don't hesitate to contact me, I'll gladly do it for you for the price of snaps, shipping and $1 per diaper!

That looks great! I'm having the same problem! Do you mind sharing how you did it/where you got the right snaps (so far all I've found are metal ones)? I have a snap press (a cheapo from WalMart - will that even work) and would love to do this to mine b/c I'm getting sick of diaper chains!

Of course! I actually bought a snap press from thesnapstore.com cause I am making diapers anyway, and you can put snaps on an amazing assortment of stuff! They are the polyactel resin snaps in size 20. They are KAM Snaps and snap press. You can get a complete pliers kit for $35 bucks at kamsnaps.com which comes 200 sets of snaps in your color choice, and kamsnaps.dcom also sells the snaps that match all the bumGenius diapers exactly.
Then I just used a seam ripper to rip out the threads from the hook & loop. I put one snap on each side for closure then I put ten snaps along the front 1 inch apart in the middle of where the hook & loop was. I put the backing of the snap inside the pocket so they weren't touching baby!

I will probably be sending my diapers to you one day soon! CottonBabies is going to replace them for now since they are only 6 months old, but after this set wears out, I will need snaps!

I just did this to 4 diapers that I got off of Diaper Swappers, they were in perfect shape and I did a double row so I wouldn't get wing droop. They are wonderful!

OMG I would absolutely send you my BG's to get snapped. Please tell me you're still offering?
We've been using them for about 10 months and that diaper chain is sooo annoying! That, and my hair always ends up wrapped up in the tabs (no idea how in the world it gets into the washer in the first place).
