Thanks to Marie, Catherine & Toni for this Frugal Baby Tip!
Catherine wrote: I pin on an angle - with the head of the pin higher than the other end,and pointing away from the baby's body. This is recommended, so that if the pin *should* open, it is less likely to stick the baby.

Marie wrote: I have always pinned my baby's diapers at an angle, and recently have actually started using 4 pins, pinning one pair at an angle, and the other straight across. This seems to help keep the diapers snugger and keep them from drooping. The more active my dd has gotten, the harder it's been to keep them from drooping around her little butt. Using 4 is a bit of a pain, but it seems to be working!

Toni wrote: I double pin my diapers. The first go straight across near the top. The second set go below that. Near the bottom at an angle that follows the way the diaper lays across the thigh.
