Rust-resistant stainless steel with a traditional diaper pin locking head. Basic starter pins to give pinning a try. Always use a cover over pins and other diaper fasteners. These are simple yet effective diaper pins made in China. Never let pins go through the wash.
Lubricating pins by pushing the point into a bar of gentle bar soap before using helps any pin slide, so do lubricate your pins! Keeping the bar of soap in its paper wrapper will keep things neat.
These are the best diaper pins. Many diaper pins are to dull to easily pierce diapers. Having to use excessive force can cause owies. These slide through easily so no more hurt fingers. I love that they have a safety lock so that I never have to worry about them coming undone and sticking my baby. My advice: order a few extra. They can get misplaced.
I bought more because I lost one of my orange pins, so I got enough to have two pairs in each color. I keep them shoved into a bar of soap and work them in and out a few times every few uses to keep them fully lubricated. The only downside I've found is that they haven't had any blue ones for a while, which has prevented me from having the full rainbow. Pins are my favorite way to secure my flats, and despite being clumsy, have only rarely poked myself a couple of times in about 6 months of daily use(and never poked my daughter!) Snappies are good too, but I love the security of the pins!
I had always been afraid of using pins. For 2 kids now I’ve used snappis to hold the diaper closed. I bought these with the intention of using them to pin my flats shut after I folded them. But as the snappi got harder to pull the diaper closed I decided to give these a try. I mean I had them already. I am proud to say I have only poked myself once and have never poked baby. The bright orange makes them easy to spot, the stay closed without any spontaneous opening. I’m very happy with these pins. My mom chuckled when she saw me using pins, flats and wool for my night time set up but took her laugh back when there was no morning leaking.
