Baby Shower:CDs: KAM Snaps

As we grow closer to the due date of our second child, one of the biggest things on my mind is our cloth diapering a newbie. With Caden we didn't start cloth diapers until he was around 6 months old, so this is all new to me! (and I'll admit, while I have a large NB/OS stash, I have bought some sposies just in case!) One thing that I was somewhat worried about is using our OS stash for the second time. Some of the velcro is wearing on our BumGenius 3.0s and GroBaby covers, causing the diaper tabs to become unstuck if Caden rolls around or whatnot. So I began researching my options. The two options I found were to send off my diaper stash to a WAHM to be converted to snaps... or to buy a set of pliers and snaps and do them myself. Since I strive to save money everyway that I can, I decided that doing it myself would be my best option. That's when I found KAMSnaps.com.

KAMSnaps.com sells an assortment of snap products. They offer both a set of snap pliers and a snap press. They also sell a LARGE assortment of snaps in pretty much every color that you can think of! I love that they even offer colors to match the BumGenius 3.0s exactly... not to mention the specialty snaps that you can order, like star shaped or engraved snaps! (How cute are these painted lion caps??)

I will soon receive a set of KAM snap pliers and snaps to begin converting my diapers. I have found a few picture tutorials online and plan to go off of those in the beginning. I will also be documenting how it goes/how I do it with pictures so that I can share that with all of you! I definitely plan to convert some BumGenius 3.0s and Gro Babys in the beginning, so definitely check back for information on doing those! In the meantime, if you are looking to begin converting your diapers, check out KAMSnaps.com for all your snaps needs! (They run a great deal where if you buy a set of pliers you get 200 sets of size 20 snaps for $7.95 plus free shipping!)
