Product Details

What is a Nappi Nippa?

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.

How to use a Nappi Nippa

Nappi Nippas are such an amazing invention and fiendishly simple: just a plastic T shape with little claws at each of the three ends.

  1. Simply hook one claw into the fabric roughly over one thigh (while holding the nappy together with the other hand), 
  2. S-t-r-e-t-c-h the nippa over to the other thigh and catch the claw into the loops of the fabric there, 
  3. Pull the centre claw down to catch at the fabric between the legs. 

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

Tip

Remember to stretch the Nappi Nippa as you put it on. It works under tension and is meant to be stretched.

 

Benefits of Nappi Nippas

  • Nappy Nippers are much faster to use than nappy pins. Nippas are making safety pins a thing of the past.
  • Nappi Nippas provide a nicely balanced secure fastening which gives the reusable nappies they are used with a high degree of containment.
  • You have total adjustability both up-down as well as left-right, it is hard to beat the fit that Nippas offer.
  • Nippas can't not be taken off by little hands unlike Velcro!

Are there any fabrics Nappi Nippas are not suitable for?

Nappi Nippas are not suitable for use with flannelette or with stretch terry nappies such as the Motherease range.

Not as good as expected
Rating:
16 August 2022  | 

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.

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.

Not suitable for bubblebubs
Rating:
23 February 2021  | 

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.

Love nippas with terries but these ones seem to be a bit small for a toddler
Rating:
04 December 2020  | 

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).

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.

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.

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.
