I really like the Boingos. I feel like I can get as good a fit as I do with pins. With the Snappi, It ends up pulling so the top of the diaper bunches up and doesn't make for a smooth front.

I'll first mention what I like about the Boingo. I like how the rubber is thick, and feels substantial. I also like the color choices. I don't think this is a clip to use with a larger baby or toddler though.
I have been cloth diapering for about a year and half, and had only been using Snappis with my prefolds. I decided to try Boingo clips because the bottom clip on the Snappi was constantly coming undone when my son wasn't wearing a diaper cover (which is a lot around the house), and that part of the clip was constantly catching (and ruining) everything it came in contact with. There are a lot of shirts that now have holes in them, and it even has snagged the couch multiple times. I've had the Boingo clips for only about 2 weeks now. I find that they don't hold as well as a Snappi, and tried folding the prefold different ways to see if it would work better with a different fold. It didn't. My son is 2 years old and 30lbs. He's just slightly too big to only use 1 Boingo clip. I tried it with 1 clip a few times, and although the diaper held on much better, and much longer, it was simply too tight around his waist. This being said, I used 2 clips on him. I've tried to adjust it for maximum tension so that it's tight, but the diaper falls off very quickly. I cant seem to find a fold where the extra bulk of the diaper on the sides doesn't slip out of place while he moves, allowing the diaper to loosen. He also figured out how to pull the diaper off with the Boingo by wiggling the diaper from the back. He hasn't done that with the Snappi.
The Boingo is thicker, and slightly harder to stretch, which means that it might hold up longer than a Snappi, but makes it harder on the hands to pull and snap into place. While the Snappi has a pull area to hold on to while snapping into place, the Boingo doesn't. My thought is that a Boingo would be better for a smaller child, where you only need 1 clip, and don't need to stretch it as far.

Response from GMD: Please always use a cover when using either a Boingo or a Snappi. The directions for both products require the use of a cover over them at all times.

I tried using these on my newborn with Green Mountain newborn prefolds. The Boingo fasteners easily detached inside the diaper cover, which worried me because if it had touched the baby's skin then it would have scratched or poked him. The Boingo also seemed to put temporary holes in my prefolds and pull at the threads, which also worried me because I do not want to ruin my diapers. Additionally, I tried these with flour sack towels from Walmart that I am using as flats. The Boingo did not stay on at all, so the fasteners are useless to me now. I will buy a Snappi next time around.

I love these on my 10 month old. I find that sometimes it is hard to stretch a Snappi across his hips, but I can quickly and easily place the Boingos, even with his wiggling around. They do not stay in place as well as a Snappi, but I have mainly found this to be an issue only if he isn't wearing a diaper cover. If he wears a cover, it really hasn't been a problem and is easier than stretching a Snappi across his little pot belly.

Readers please note: Always use a diaper cover over a Boingo or a Snappi Fastener.

I am a first time mom, so I don't have much to compare to, but I really like these Boingos! They are very easy to use and quick to put on. I use them on the workhorse organic cotton and they work well. I do have to make sure that the Boingo is far from my baby because the prongs are a bit sharp. I also like that they are made with surgical grade silicone. Would definitely recommend!

We used Snappis until they started to compress our boy in the front at around 4 months old. The Boingo clips completely solve this problem. They stay in place very well for us. They are easy for me to put on him, but my husband has a harder time because his larger fingers can't grasp the end of the clip without him touching the sharp teeth. But he deals with it, and our boy is very comfortable!
