WHen stuffing your OS pockets do you have them snapped down to size and then stuff or stuff before snapping down?

If you stuff after snapping down do you fold over part of the insert to fit to to the smaller size?

Also, do you unsnap before washing or just wash all snapped to size?

Thanks!

Good questions. I was kind of wondering about those myself.

Mine are snapped before I put them on, and I do not unsnap to wash.. (because Im lazy). So the only time I adjust is when I need to

I never unsnap the rise snaps unless it's to adjust them. I've wondered about whether you're supposed to unsnap everything in the wash but I never do and I've never had a problem. If I have new diapers I always adjust the snaps first and then stuff.

Thanks for asking this. I wondered this too. I imagined I'd stuff, snap, and then unsnap to wash....not doing that would save alot of hassle.

I never unsnap. If the insert or doubler is too long I just fold it down a little bit.

I always keep my pockets snapped down to size. So I just stuff with it already snapped down (if insert too long, just fold over) and wash with it snapped down.

After many months of line drying, I did have one diaper (a kawaii mom label not minky) that discolored some from being hung snapped to size, but that's just one diaper out of many.

No way am I snapping and unsnapping!

Now that I've only got one in diapers, I leave everything snapped and just stuff them. When I had 2 in diapers, I would unsnap them because I never knew which kid would use the diaper next time.

I don't unsnap mine either - just adjust when needed. It helps me keep the diapers seperate for each child too.

I keep mine snapped until I need to unsnap them to be bigger for the baby. I stuff them and wash them while snapped.
