The littlest one can still undo the new snaps though so might have to replace with the next size up. Unfortunately none of the tutorials I found suggested the correct size to use - or not that I could see. I used a rumparooz nappy as a template. But yes, the pliers etc. are a very useful tool. I keep seeing things to add snaps to. The only thing is that you are left with so many of the stud bits compared to the socket bit with doing these nappies.

@sugarmouse how did you go? Did you get them finished? It is a pain having lots of one set left but they are pretty cheap and better to keep being able to use your nappies!

@labbiefan
I have a size 16 and 20 set for my machine and I think I've only bought the bigger size 20 ones which I think are what is recommended for nappies. The 16 is better for CSP.

I got on quite well thanks but I ruin out of steam so still have a few left to do. I've found I haven't quite pressed them in propyl in places, the second row down is the trickiest, so a couple of snaps have come off in the wash :/
