Back elastic...yay or nay?

I'm in the process of converting some osocozy premium prefolds to fitteds using doodle la's tutorial. She doesn't add back elastic. I honestly don't know which is better. Pros and cons and your preference please? And has anyone else converted prefolds? thanks in advance ladies!

Never converted but I like them with elastic in the back. Gives them a better fit IMO

Better fit and better containment.

Yes for the containment factor

Do it! I have the Osocozy 2-size fitteds & mostly love them...but the lack of back elastic is my primary complaint about them.

When I made them with a closure ,I preferred the back elastic. But if I was going to snappi them (I didn't really pin) then I didn't like the back elastic. I could get a tighter fit without the elastic because then it could lay flat across their back.

I would say back elastic would be better if the poo is soft. Plopable poo it probably doesn't really matter, in my opinion.

Re: Back elastic...yay or nay?

Thank you all so very much! I'll add a little back elastic. I haven't tried very many diapers before and have never had any without back elastic, so I had nothing to compare it to. Assuming I ever get these suckers done, I'll post a pic so you can see my awesomely novice sewing skills !
