We have several excellent options for fastening diapers on your baby.
These pins are a full three inches long. They have stainless steel shafts with a very sharp point. Sharper than any other pin we have ever tried. The head is all plastic safety catch preventing the diaper pin from coming unfastened and sticking the baby. These pins are suitable for the thickest night diapers and babies over 75 pounds. In addition to being very functional the colorful plastic head makes these pins uniquely for baby. This pin is much larger than those for small babies. To pin diapers with this size pin requires that you keep the pin at a low angle to the diaper and push it through with finesse. Keep one finger between the baby and the diaper to prevent poking the baby. You should only pin the outer diaper when double diapering and the thinner side panels in a prefold diaper. You can rub the pin across ivory baby soap or a trick that mothers from the 50's used was to pass it through their hair to provide a lubricant to assist in pinning the diapers. When done properly the pin should just slide in place without damaging the diaper. Another concern that most mothers know but it's worth repeating here is that diaper pins should be place sideways back to front as opposed to standing up pointing at the waist. Not only is it safer in the event of a pin coming unfastened but it's much more comfortable instead of sticking baby in the tummy when they sit.

Pack of 2 in TODDLER SIZE The Snappi® is a safer, more reliable, EASY to use fastener for cloth diapers that replaces the diaper pins. The stretchable non-toxic Snappi® hooks into the diaper material to make a strong closure. They work best with diapers that have a loose enough weave for the Snappi® to hook into. (cotton gauze, birdseye or twill pre-folds, and others) They do not work well with flannel or other tightly woven diapers. The TODDLER SIZE is better suited for larger babies and young toddlers. It is longer across the top 'T' of the Snappi®. Once stretched correctly, the Snappi® fastener gives an additonal 4" stretch across the width than the Size 1 Snappi®. It comfortably fits up to a 30" waist. WARNING: Do NOT use a Snappi® fastener on toddlers who have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes. How to use your Snappi®: To improve elasticity, stretch your Snappi® fastener a few times before use. Step 1: Hook left Step 2: Stretch across and hook right Step 3: Stretch down and hook center The Snappi® should go from a "T" shape to a "Y" shape when stretched properly. Warning: Always use a cover over a Snappi fastener. Keep out of children's reach when not in use. Do not use your Snappi for longer than 6 months. Not UV resistant - exposure to the sun can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi. CAUTION: Any tear in the Snappi can lead to separation of a piece, presenting a possible choking hazard. Inspect the Snappi before each use and discontinue using immediately if there is any sign of cracking, tearing, breakage or wear of the teeth or any other parts. Do not cut a Snappi as this may cause tearing.
