how do you tell the difference between 3.0 and 4.0?

How do you tell the difference between bum genius 3.0 and 4.0's?

3.0s were all aplix (none were manufactured with snaps although some mamas convert their aplix diapers). I believe the rise was a little shorter than the 4.0s too.

That also means it looks a little different since that seam doesn't completely cover the elastic... on the outside it bunches more. 4.0s are also bigger

The biggest difference I saw was that the 3.0s don't have aplix laundry tabs, they are more like flannel.

Are the tabs on the 4.0 stretchier than the 3.0's?...I only have 4.0s so I have nothing to compare them to, but it seems I remember stretchy tabs being one of the changes.

Of course, my memory is nothing to go on these days....

The 3.0s have stretchy tabs too.
