Changing applix BGs to snaps - can it be done?

Postby Johanna21 » Sun Sep 02, 2012 9:23 pm

As the subject says, is it possible to change applix BGs into snaps? My ds can unfasten the applix even through his vest which is a bit of a problem. I'm not very crafty so if it can be done, is it easy? :-?

Yes, not too difficult. Worth getting a popper one from somewhere to work out the spacing required for the snaps and practice putting snaps on before you start on the actual nappy as they're bl0#dy difficult to remove if you go wrong :shock:

This is probably a really stupid question but where do I get the snaps from?

I found ebay to be the cheapest-check out kam snaps as a search term x

If you haven't got any snaps or a snap press it might be worth paying someone else to do it.

This idea appeals to me. Does anybody do this and what's it likely to cost?

I've been doing them - just finished these for @stormflowers

I've been charging £2.50 per nappy for snaps or elastic or £4 for both, plus return post :-)
