What do you think is a better feature in a diaper cover?

Would you like either...

-female snaps at the back so that you can use snap-in inserts (I already make OS diapers and want the inserts to be interchangeable)

- a back and front flap so that you can just slot an insert/prefold in like a flip cover?

My inserts always shift around in flip like covers, so I prefer snaps to make like an AI2.

I prefer flaps, I alway worry that the snaps will be uncomfortable for my lo, especially if I use an insert other than the one it came with!

You could also put snaps under the flaps... Best of both worlds!

I thought about this! But then I was wondering if they will pull out easily. Otherwise I will have to reinforce with another layer of PUL and not sure that I can do that neatly without adding another large piece.
