Fun with Boingos

If you’ve ever had someone question your sanity when they discovered that you use (or plan to use) cloth diapers, it’s highly likely that they harken from ye olden days when cloth diapering required pins.

If you’re reading this blog you probably realize that modern cloth diapers have come a looooong way since diaper pins. Of course, you’ve got your Velcro and your snap closures, but you can also still use really basic, inexpensive diapers like flats and prefolds without needing pins.

Enter Boingo.

They’re stretchy. They’re grippy. They’re cute and colorful. And they do an awesome, pinless job at keeping a prefold or a flat diaper fastened securely on baby.

Not only are Boingo fasteners totally adorable, but they’ve got a lot of uses besides just cloth diapering.

Sprained your ankle? Forget those ugly metal Ace bandage fasteners. Give your wound some bling with a Boingo!

Need a little something extra for your hairdo? There’s a Boingo for that. (Not that my niece isn’t so stinking cute without any accessories whatsoever, but I must say she totally rocked the Boingo-as-a-hair-accessory look.)

And I’m sure that you creative ladies could probably figure out tons of other uses for a Boingo long after your baby’s diapering days are done. To win some Boingos of your own, enter the giveaway below!

    Hmm… Extend the length of time you can wear your jeans while pregnant? Keep the button undone and add the Boingo to hold it together? Lol 🙂

    I use boingos for remove pilling from the aplix tabs of diapers

    I’ve never seen a boingo in person so I’m not sure what other ways I would use one. I’m a pin person as I tried the snappis and found them awkward to use. I love the ace bandage idea! I may have to get some just for that!

  4. Ok, call me silly but I used my boingos to sinch in the sides of my jeans when they were too big (I tend to way less after giving birth than before I got pregnant. Don’t worry I gain it all back 6 months later.)

    If you have a sheet that won’t stay on the bed, maybe you could attach the Boingos on the corner of the sheet under the mattress!
