Best fabric for snappi??

After making 9 fitted with flannel I've learned it's not the best snappi friendly fabric. So any suggestions??

birdseye cotton snappis very well. Maybe sew some little patches of birdseye onto the places on the diapers you want to snappi?

or just add some snaps.

Boingos are better in flannel than snappis, I've found.

See when I made my first test diaper the snappi was great and then when I used my cute print not so much lol. I made the pattern bigger to where you can tuck the front use into the legs when you fold it down. And then I just put the cover over it.

the problem is when you wash it, the weave can get tighter- that is the case with my bamboo fleece

any loose knit works best- like a terry or birdseye
