Side snap or aplix?

I am not a big fan of either. I don't like side snaps b/c most of the time the flaps that go in the front tend to wick on us. I would use Aplix but I prefer just regular snaps in the front.

I've never tried side aplix, but I do prefer side snaps. On LO, they put a lot less pressure on her tummy and so they're kinder to her reflux. On DD1, I use side snap dipes with stretchy tabs as pull-ups for night.

We are a no-aplix house. I assumed DH and DCP would like aplix, but DH can't deal with the laundry chains and DCP us chronically unable to fasten laundry tabs :-)
I like side snaps, but we don't have any - BGEs and 4.0's go to daycare so for consistency's sake we only do front snaps. I really liked sized bottombumpers.

I would say snaps b/c I have used aplix and it is frustrating when they don't stick well anymore, they can fill up w/ lint and have to be cleaned. Side snaps are nice for us, b/c they leave a nice smooth front. If they have enough side snaps, they should fit a wide range of body types. HTH!!

I'd go with snaps for the same reason. I'm slowly phasing out my aplix for snaps.

I never used to like side snaps but I gave them another shot and I love them.......they are so trim fitting and gentle on her tummy. I also like having some aplix in my stash......snaps hold up better but sometimes you just can't beat the ease of aplix.

Side snaps are my absolutely favorite. They fit better and trimmer than front snaps on all 5 of my children :)

I only have one side snapping cover (a Jamtots berry plush) and it's nice, but takes longer for me to secure it on DD (maybe just a learning curve and with time it will be quick--DH was clueless and just put a good 'ol thirsties cover on after changing her out of the side snapping cover).

I am assuming a "side aplix" diaper would be like a G-diaper? We've tried them and I liked the look and fit, but we only got size small and DD quickly grew out of them. I love regular aplix and that's what most of our stash is (fitteds and covers with aplix). It's just easy to get a snug fit because DD has a tiny waist and no butt! I feel like snaps give me limited options for how snug or loose her diaper can go.

When we're at home, I like side or front snap diapers. However, I have noticed that when my son is being a crankypants who wants me to put his diaper on while he's standing up (normally this only happens when we are out and about), a side snap diaper is easier for me than a front snap. I have never tried side aplix. I generally prefer snaps.
