I prefer SNAPS! That's what I'm planning to go with. The whole velcro thing seems like it would get messy and not hold up for many babies! (which I plan to have!)

Becky said...

Snaps. I find that the Aplix on most of my diapers is starting to pull funny or get puffy. Also, the laundry chain of diapers is annoying. Finally, little man is learning how to undo his diapers. The one good thing about aplix is it's quicker than snaps.

I prefer snaps (but have only 3 out of 35) because my husband has an inability to fasten diaper tabs correctly, no matter how many times he is told/shown. So I either have to go through every diaper I put in the wash rather than just dump them, or I have to deal with a "diaper ball" because they are all stuck together!

I like the snappies rather than velcro, baby beckett can hear the velcro rip and it wakes him up while changing his diaper..no noise with the snappies!

I'm liking snaps the best right now as I've been repairing some wayward velcro! ;)

I have tried both and I can honestly say that I like both for different reasons. Aplix is the fastest to fasten and you get a PERFECT fit every time. But snaps are definitely my favorite because you never have to worry about laundry tabs, snagging etc. so they look newer longer. And they are super sturdy so my daughter has never even tried to open her diaper (where as with aplix, she opened it all the time). But the aplix on the GroBaby is the best aplix I have seen yet.

I like snaps because velcro can sometimes scratch.

Today's entry: I also like snaps better because it doesn't wear out like aplix do.

heather[dot]mcdougle[at]gmail[dot]com

Stacy Whalen said...

Pros and cons to each. I love the minute adjustability of aplix, but after 4 months of solid use of BumGenius aplix, it is coming loose and is not as fixable as what I thought it'd be. Plus, it pills up and doesn't look as professional as snaps, though that is a purely aesthetic point. I don't like how aplix sticks to everything, even if you have it fixed to the laundry tabs.

I like the quality of snaps and the fact that babies can't undo them as easily as aplix. BUT, I wonder if it works as well on one size diapers, where more of a range of adjustability is required.

That said, I'm going with snaps with any new diaper I get.

Upstatemomof3 said...

I totally prefer applix because my squirmy girl does not like to sit still so the faster the change the better.

Tricky question-
Aplix is easier for sitters and grandparents (FuzziBunz totally perplex my MIL). It also allows you a perfect fit.
...But aplix wears out faster, can snag other diaper items in the wash, and collects lint.

I like the convenience of applix, but I just purchased some diapers with snaps recently and I love the snaps. It seems like they will hold up a bit longer than applix.

Snaps- absolutely snaps! The aplix always seems to scratch the babies belly( both my toddler and newborn). Although the snaps are more trying during midnight changes, they are worth it to me.

I love the gro baby diapers. They fit my baby so well and the velcro doesn't hurt his belly.

Shannon said...

I have some of both, and like both. I like the fact that my toddler can't get the snaps off, so I don't have to worry about a naked girl carrying her diaper around peeing on the floor. However, my daughter is very skinny, and I find I am able to get a better fit with aplix. It all depends on what mood I'm in and what's clean.

At first, I thought Aplix was much easier to use and thus the better choice. But after using cloth diapers for over a year on my son, I've realized that snaps are much more durable. I wish I'd purchased more diapers with snaps.

Arizona Girl said...

I'm a snap fan. They hold up so much better over time. The largest reason we do cloth diapers is the long tern cost investment vs the long term continual cost. Every time I purchase a aplix type diaper I feel like its defieting the purpose because the get so yucky in the wash.

Today's comment- I like aplix for the adjustability but snaps for long term use.

MaryAnne said...

I prefer snaps - they stay on better, don't rub against baby's legs, and are easier to fasten on a child who is standing up (assuming you know what setting to put them on!)

I prefer Aplix closures to snaps because they seem to be a bit most customise-able, instead of being confined to specific snaps.

christy ross said...

usually, I'd say snaps because I have a toddle who LOVES to take off her diaper and do her business on the floor. but I've read on diaperpin about the 'super duper' velcro on Gro-Baby. so I'd have to say it's worth a try!

scottandrae1 said...

I prefer snaps for laundry reasons, but realize they are less easy for hubby and babysitters. But I like them best!

i prefer hook & loop since my doll squirms around so much that i need to be super quick.

I prefer snaps, I love that my snap diapers look as new as the day I got them, The few aplix I have are looking a little worn from pilling beside the aplix, I don't like that they look worn out before they are 6months old.

I a suscriber to blog/twitter and a facebook fan and I really want to try the grobaby diaper! I was excited when I first saw these and I would love to win them because I hear great things about them and I think it would be a really simple diaper system.

lawmommy26 said...

Well I forgot to put that I would prefer snaps, because my son won't be able to open them and I do think they last longer also. Even my bumgenius aplix (which has held up more than other diapers I have tried) is falling apart alittle and I don't think they will make it to my next baby.

michellebaker said...

I love the snaps. I have an escape artist for a son! The snaps make sure he can't remove his diaper.

I like both. I like the aplix for a smaller baby. It just seems like you can secure it tighter. But for my 8 month old I love snaps because she can't take it off as easy. And the snaps seem easier. No laundry tab to worry about.

I found that the Swaddlebees with Snaps didn't fit my daughter well, but the aplix thirsties fitted fit so well. Snaps look better. I don't think I've used enough of a variety of CD's to have a preference. Based on my experience, I like the aplix better because of fit and ease of application.

I have both and use both equally. They both have their unique pros and cons. But I will say that I haven't ever heard of one complaining that their child was known for removing their snap diaper. Well low and behold my 21 month figured out how to unsnap today. Result = wet bed + dry diaper. He never has removed a diaper before now aplix or snap. I have been saying for months that he will be my engineer. He is always trying to figure things out.

Right now i prefer aplix because it is faster and easier to get the diaper changed. I don't like the diaper trails and i won't like it if it wears out fast or it's easier for my baby to get his diaper off once he is older. right now i have a mixture of snaps and aplix.
