THIS!!

I did this with my BG 3.0 pockets and the H&L lasted really well. Velcro stayed strong and didn't curl. It cost me about $3.00 (I think) to buy the long strip of "loop" from the fabric store and then I just cut small squares to fit the velcro tabs. Every time I changed a diaper, I just took the loop off the new diaper and fastened it to the dirty diaper's tabs and threw it in the wet bag. My BG lasted 2 years before my DD potty learned and we sold our stash. I have a brand new set of 4.0s for this new baby due any day, and I plan on using the same system once he's big enough to fit his pockets.
