Why cant you do them hun? They need to be pulled quite taut, as does the nappy. Hook left, right and the middle.

Just a little thought here....I almost gave up on cloth when I first started with ethan as I coudnt get nippas to fasten his nappies properly .....it turned out that sometimes bamboo doesn't nippa very well and therefore that could be why you are having trouble as I did. In the end when I tried nippas on different fabrics (not microfibre) but cotton ect and even some bamboo fabrics I found the nippas realy easy to use! Just a thought sweetie. X

I've had problems with nippas on a few terry nappies. The pile of the fabric just doesn't catch the nippa teeth. I could put some snaps on for you, if you want.
