What do y'all think?
I don't like velcro dipes period. I don't like the fact that they look worn sooner, especially if you are making a size they will wear a long time. I also don't like laundry snakes. It takes some getting used to snaps when putting them on the baby if you are used to sposies/ velcro but once you train your hands its not a problem, also if you are diapering a toddler they have a harder time taking off their dipe if it's snaps.

I guess what I'm saying is.....do some snaps and see if you like them, everything I've made so far has snaps, except for some newborn PUL covers (in case I need a tighter fit in the beginning, but they don't wear that size very long).
