A Nappi Nippa (AKA Snappis) is a plastic T-shaped grip used instead of pins on traditional Terry Nappies, some fitted nappies, muslins or flats.
A Nippa Stretches and grips easily to the front of a reusable nappy to hold it snugly and firmly in place.
Nappi Nippas are such an amazing invention and fiendishly simple: just a plastic T shape with little claws at each of the three ends.
The resulting grip should be Y shaped if it has enough tension.
Read our article "how to use a terry nappy" and our "ultimate terry nappy folding guide" if you're planning on using folded nappies and Nappi Nippas
Remember to stretch the Nappi Nippa as you put it on. It works under tension and is meant to be stretched.
Nappi Nippas are not suitable for use with flannelette or with stretch terry nappies such as the Motherease range.
We stock a wide variety of unisex colours and you will be sent a random selection of colours. If you have a strong preference for a colour palette please add a note on your order.
I was happy when I saw these were the same price as the usual fasteners I buy, so I thought I'd give them a go as they are the well known brand. When I opened up the parcel they were lovely shades of yellow and gold not the red, white, and blue I was expecting. The elastic is very strong and a little thicker but that's where the good points end. The teeth on these are rubbish. Only one or two spikes catch on the fabric despite pushing them in and across when attaching them to our terries, and they end up coming undone. These nippas probably work great for a baby but not my active toddler. When they undo while shes playing, her nappy looks like a droopy disposable! I'm disappointed and won't be buying these again.
I do wish these were a little cheaper but The Nappy Lady has one of the best prices for them that I've seen... saying that I'm very glad I bought them as they've opened up so many folding options when using muslins.
Product purchased at discount as part of ambassador role. Views are my own.Ordered an extra pack of these for my newborn. They offer a secure fastening for both my newborn and toddler on a range of nappies. Allows me to turn any fabric into a nappy by quickly folding and fastening onto my baby.
I first used a similar product 30 years ago on my children when shaped nappies were a new thing, I remember it being fiddly and difficult to use but such a good idea. I got these as the velcro fastening on my granddaughter's nappies doesn't always hold. They are excellent, so easy to use and hold the nappies in place perfectly.
Really easy to use on cloth nappies and allows you to adjust the tightness easily
I found the nappi nippa a little difficult for the first handful for attempts but picked it up in no time - even as a total novice! It really does tailor the nappy to each baby and their unique shape.
I had not heard of them before and I thought the traditional safety pins would do the job better but when I used them. I was amazed - great product.
If you use washable nappies then get these, they're simple to use and do the job perfectly. A must have
I was using these nippas with bubblebubs BIG and was struggling with it. It wouldnt hold to the nappy some times even would get loose under the wrap. I tried to press it harder so it would go deeper into cloth but it was taking a lot of time and most of the time it wouldnt help. Switched to liitle lamb nappi nippas and its perfect!
Use on fitted cotton nappies (similar to bumbles) and they hold in place without loosening. Also used on terries flats and holds in place.
Is exactly what I expected and needed... might be nice to have a choice of colours? But they go under the wrap, so really it’s not important..! Very nice, and came very quickly. Great product (as all nappy lady products are!)
We have not used the nippas yet as baby has not arrived but the service, communication and delivery were all very good and timely.
I love the terries/nippas/pull-up wrap system for my toddler who can unfasten any popper or Velcro nappy fastening faster than I can fasten it! He has figured out how to unclip the nippa but fortunately is quite slow at it so so far I have been able to cover it with the wrap in time! These ones are a bit small for us (we get on better with little lamb nippas).
These work brilliantly, stay put on my active toddler all day. Would definitely recommend them
Fiddly to use and don’t always stay in place at all three points of contact. Much prefer nappies with popper fastenings that don’t require the use of this. (Eg Anavey)
Easy to use and very effective, keeps the folded muslin nappies in place. We bought one pack of 3 and so far haven't needed more
Grippier and easier to use than expected.
Worked great with fitting our baby's nappies.
It’s very simple, easy to use product (and I’m new at reusable nappies). It’s excellent.
These are the first and only nappy nippas i have ever bought so nothing to compare to but they do the job well and I’ve not had any problems
Coupled with muslins these make newborn cloth nappies super cheap and easy! Highly recommend.
Fab, they stretch nicely, grab hold of pretty much anything!
Happy with these but one of the white teeth came out in one after a couple of uses so was left with two usable ones so had to buy more annoyingly. They were easy to use as had never tried before so wasn't sure.
Great product. No fiddly pins. Works well.
Brilliant method of fastening prefold nappies: easy, safe, quick and can be done one-handed.
Great product, using them on muslins, holds strong, just be careful with the sharp teeth not to hurt yourself or baby.
Can't fault this product. Easy to use and successful every time.
These work brilliantly to hold the terry squares in place & are really easy to use, even one handed!
Very easy to clip on, can be sharp so watch little fingers (I caught mine). So easy to use and nice looking too.
Very good product.
Being a cloth beginner, initially I thought these might be tricky to use. They're not! Easy to get the hang of and do a great job of holding nappy in place.
Does what you want it to well
Good design, very effective
These are fab!
The nappi nippa does the job of holding the nappy on well. It has never fallen off from the sides of the nappy, but sometimes comes off at the bottom, perhaps because it takes some nerve to stretch the nappy and put those fearsome looking claws on! Nevertheless, madly stayed in place.
Perfect nappy holders and easy to use
These are high quality, easy to use and give a great fit on the nappies I use overnight.
Not been and to use these yet as baby too small for the terries or muslins I have. Look forward to using them though
We used nippas with muslins when baby was newborn and they were great. All the midwives in hospital were very impressed with the modern alternative to nappy pins! Only problem is that one of them snapped. Still useable but a bit awkward.
The nappi nippas are so easy to use, and you can use Terry nappies without even the slightest worry that you will pokd your little one in the leg or somewhere worse!!! And they last
So simple to use and durable.
These are brilliant, simple but effective
Can't believe how easy they are to use!
Much easier to use than safety pinsVery Satisfied with snappis
Absolutely essential! They do exactly what they're supposed to do
Fab for fastening terries! My only piece of advice would be to keep them away from small hands as they are sharper than I expected (but far safer than a pin in my opinion). Easy to use once you know how.
Me and my husband were terrified of these when they first arrived but after re-watching the videos we have got the hang of them and they are working well!
These are so easy and make using re-usable nappies so easy. As our newborn was small at birth we have been using muslins with booster pads and these work great for holding them in place
They do the job they are designed for
Easy and quick to use and hold nappy in place. Very pleased with them.
