Rumparooz newborn covers...snaps or aplix?

So, I'm having trouble deciding on snaps or aplix for my Rumparooz newborn covers. I really like the snap Kawaii's I have for my older ds, but I'm hearing that newborns could be a whole new story. So...please share with me the pros and cons of snaps vs. aplix on a newborn (fwiw, ds will probably be in the 8+ lbs range when born). Thanks so much

I really liked aplix for the newborn stage. Aplix has infinitely more sizing options, whereas you're really limited by snaps. The only downside is that aplix wears out faster.

I think with aplix you can get a better fit, so I'm doing aplix NB RaR/Sz 1 Thirsties duo wraps & snap OS RaR/Sz 2 Thirsties duo wraps.

For a newborn I'd use aplix. They are squirmy and like to curl into a ball, making it hard to snap snaps quickly.

I used snaps and they worked great for us, but I hear good things about aplix for nbs. I loved our RAR covers for the nb stage, and I had a big baby.

I used snaps with my last and am planning on using snaps again...just cannot stand diaper chains and fast-dying aplix...
