Thanks to Catherine for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Leah asked: What does it mean when you say pin "away from the baby" ?

Catherine answered: You push the pin into the diaper near baby's belly, and push the pin out of the diaper towards the hip.

Leah asked: Does the pin have to go through every single piece of fabric?

Catherine answered: No, you only need to go through the layers of the diaper that you brought around the waist from the back, and at least one layer of the bottom layer (or folded front waist) of the diaper.

Leah asked: Can babies pull at the heads to unlock them? Until what age is it safe to pin?

Catherine answered: I have pinned diapers right up to toilet training - in Josh's case that was 3.5 years old. The majority of children would not have the manual dexterity to open the safety lock pins. Although there might be the rare child. If that were to happen, I would simply stop using pins immediately.
