Unhappy Gdiaper liner snap causing red marks

Does anyone know how I can prevent my LO getting red marks from the Gdiaper liner snaps? They have even broken the skin before. I try not to put the diapers on too tight now and it seems to help, but then we have a leakage problem. I love the Gdiapers because my son seems so much more comfortable in them compared to our Flips. He can move around much more easily and practices sitting up in them, where he hates leaning forward in the Flips because they are so high and bulky. I just want to make sure the snap issue isn't a user error and is just a result of the way they fit my son (he is a long baby, moderately chunky). He wears mediums and is around 17 lbs. Any help or experiences appreciated!

You can glue a little circle of fleece to the exposed snap.

Re: Gdiaper liner snap causing red marks

we had to quit gdiapers because of that. We use Flips and LOVE them. When the front bulk bothered my little guy, I folded to the back of the diaper. He'd have a lot of junk in the trunk, but it didnt bother him.

Re: Gdiaper liner snap causing red marks

Those are both great suggestions and I will be trying them! I like having both Gdiapers and Flips. Never thought about folding to the back of Flips. He is a super-soaker, but we are already changing his diaper frequently, so I doubt folding to the back would be a problem.
Thanks ladies!
