As reference for what I already know. I have tried the regular alvas and the glow bugs. I like the idea I the glow bugs best but the material of the alvas feel stronger to me. What do you think of the color snaps compared I these?

Glowbugs are smaller, and feel less durable to me. I love the fit of my color snaps and wanted to love glowbug for the prints but no love. The inner material of the glowbugs stains much easier and is more prone to retain stains. I used my glowbug diaper on a friends newbie to compare the fits on tiny babies and the glowbug did not fit a 7 lb baby, but the color snap fit well. The legs just aren't as snug fitting on the glowbug.

These pictures are fully unsnapped to show the black color snap is bigger. They go down the same size for little ones but the leg holes just hold differently. I feel the color snaps are just a slightly better design. The double gussets on the glowbug also lack structure since the jersey material is less stiff.

On my smart phone which is clearly not as smart as it seems to believe
