Sticky for Snappi Warning?

I have read way too many posts lately about babies being injured while going coverless b/c their snappi gets caught on something and then snaps back onto the tummy.

The snappi website and the packaging both state not to go coverless, but not many people actually read that fine print. Also, there are snappis sold on the FSOT and other places IRL and online that are not new so there is no packaging involved.

Is it possible to make a sticky with a warning about this? Maybe even one of the posts in Diaper Chatter about this subject could just be stickied….one with a picture of the injury would really get the message across. It would be handy for snappi newbies to have in the Diaper Chatter and FSOT:Inserts, Doublers & Other Accessories sections.

    Yes, yes….post a Snappi injury warning right up there next to the Fisher Price lead paint recall sheet. Absolutely.

    Suffice it to say, some people’s elevator doesn’t go to the top floor. Odds are, they probably aren’t going to change their practices because suddenly a Snappi warning goes up. We are all creatures of habit.

    The good news is that at least a Snappi scratch wouldn’t be as bad a diaper pin left wide open. Eeek.

    WHAT!!!!!?????? Snappis are dangerous??? OMG. I had no idea. Thank goodness I read the sticky. Phew.

    Your right…a sticky would be best.

    I couldn’t possibly figure out on my own that sharp pointy spikes on a snappi meant to pierce fabric could scratch my child. Geesh.

    Really? People are so not bright.

    Jen- you made me giggle

  6. DramaBore says:

    The thing is, there are quite a few people who don’t get it. I have seen many posts on DS about Snappis breaking/slipping and scratching/cutting/hitting their LO’s because they were coverless.

  7. mamapixie says:

    Common sense escapes most DS’ers, that I discovered ages ago.

  8. pony says:

    totally O/T but I had to share.
    Subliminal Darkness freaks me out
    If the OP is saying yuck to saliva, what makes her think this might appeal to her???
    Seriously, WTF??? That is just nasty!

  9. Sarah says:


    What’s it about? I’m curious…but refuse to go to DS and pick up more viruses.

  10. JustPeachy says:

    Ya Im gonna put egg whites on my hoo hoo EWWWWWWWWWWWW.

  11. JustPeachy says:

    Sarah the op has vaginal dryness and was asking for recommendations as commercial lubricants were not doing anything for her. Subliminal suggested egg whites.

  12. momofdivas says:

    Egg whites as a lubricant is recommended for TTCing also.It’s actually closer to the EWCM that a woman produces during ovulation than other products.

  13. siriusmama says:

    Yep, egg whites are just fine to use (no oral though to avoid the rink of salmonella;)). My personal fave is coconut oil, in case anyone was wondering lol.

  14. JustPeachy says:

    Now coconut oil doesnt sound bad but I dont think I could do rubbing egg whites on my feminine area. You guys don’t think that would lead to infections down there?

  15. mysterymommy says:

    #8- haha, my lube post made it in here. NICE!!! 😛

    Egg whites will my be touching my cooter any time soon. EWW! Plus I don’t need to be lubed up for the easy passage of spermies since I am spayed, hehe. I think I will stick with EPO or Coconut oil(thanks siriusmama).

  16. siriusmama says:

    Peach-I forgot to mention that the thought of putting egg whites near my happy place makes me want to puke lol. But it is perfectly safe and great for those TTC esp when the problem is…..an unfriendly environment? Maybe they call it unhospitable? Something like that lol.
    Coconut oil is the best ever though! I actually used to work at an adult entertainment super store (aka-porn shop) and I tried every kind of lube we sold and there is nothing manufactured that comes anywhere near to how great CO is, plus it is totally edible 😉

  17. siriusmama says:

    Oh wait the topic at hand…..I have caught myself with a stupid snappi before and it hurt! Seriously I would feel like the worst mama ever if one got Sirius 😦 He goes coverless in fitteds sometimes but a pf? No way.

  18. JustPeachy says:

    Thats why I pin Cheryl. I was walking by with a snappi one day and my older dd bumped into me and the damn snappi took a chunk out of her hand. Plus its happened to me as well so I put it up for emergency use only and stick to my pins.

  19. werd says:

    I HATE Snappis! I have a few snappi scars – luckily I haven’t eve gotten dd with one. We used pins… PLing now, where is my head banging the wall smilie?!?!

    eww. egg whites? ummm no. we are debating wether to continue TTCing after what just happened, but I can’t imagine using egg whites. eek.

    Have you seen ATTS today? MEOW!

    I hope you all don’t mind, but I need to get something off my chest. It has been bothering me for the last few days.
    I am getting tired of seeing the “Oh poor me…..so and so got pregnant and I am not….blah blah blah posts”
    What we all fail to understand is that timing is everything and patience is something that has to be learned, so what, you didn’t get what you want, when you want it, that is why God has created PATIENCE! We are all wanting the same thing, a beautiful babe in our bellies, but if it doesn’t happen in the first, second of third month of trying it may be a gift that will take a little longer to receive.
    Look at me and my DH, it has been over 60 months of trying, two failed IUI cycles and I am still trying to think positive that the next cycle may be mine!
    It is completely understandable, we all have bad days. When I am having mine, I usually try to stay away and not bring everyone else down. I do not want to make other mama’s feel as bad as me when their day was going great and they start thinking negative and then their day is ruined.
    I know, i wrote a book, and this may be a ton of hormones, but we all must remember, that we are all on the same course, we all need cheering on, we all fall, some may come to the finish line faster then the others, but this is not a competition, it is a road that we all must travel and we will all make it to the end, it may take some of us a little longer than we expected, there may be a few more bumps in our road, there may be a few forks, ruts, mud puddles, but the end of the road is there……….we all will make it!

    I am only ISO PP as we are still TTC our first little IUI miracle(s) our third IUI with stronger injections will be our last!

    The first three comments have me rolling! Thx!

  22. Funneh says:

    This is incredibly off-topic, but can somebody explain the sensitive topics forum to me? Where the hell is it/what exactly is it supposed to be for?

  23. pony says:

    #15- your vagina is like famous!
    Coconut, like others have said works just fine 🙂

    #22- It is for stuff hat may not be suitable for regular off-topic. It is a sub-forum and you must opt in.
    This should take you here:

  24. JustPeachy says:

    Not drama but this thread brought tears to my eyes.

  25. Funneh says:

    #23, I may just be stupid (wouldn’t surprise me too much), but that link just tells me I don’t have access to that particular page with no option TO access it?

    How will I go on if I can’t read about eggy vaginas?

  26. DSDM2 says:

    #26, if it is in ST, you have to be logged in and apply for membership in your user CP

  27. Funneh says:

    Ah, memberships in user CP: I have seen the light! Thanks DSDM2 😀

  28. mightbeme says:

  29. need a new name says:

  30. JustPeachy says:

    ATTs is Actively Trying To Conceive.
