Re: If you had to choose one... and why?

Snapped Flips with flats for me, Aplix 4.0s with flats for DH and daycare. We have 1/2 and 1/2 and it's the best of both worlds. If nobody else was putting a diaper on DD then I'd go with Flips because stuffing pockets isn't fun, but the pockets are less confusing for others.

BG 4.0, because you can use them like a pocket or use them like a flip/cover with a lay in. I never used microfiber inserts to begin with, so it didn't matter if I stuffed or laid the insert on top. I really don't like exposed PUL, nor do I really like reusing my covers. Depending on my current kick, I have at various times used my pockets like a pocket, and then used them like a single use or AI2 cover when I wanted an all natural fiber against my LO skin. It makes changes a breeze when you have plenty of "covers" all ready to go with the lay in's, plus I noticed the snap down rise sits nicer when you use a lay in instead of stuffing. Then when you want more of a wet barrier for nights or car rides you can stuff the pocket.

Flips. If you snap it to a good fit on your baby the insert wouldn't wiggle around, and you don't need as many covers. I hate polyester fleece on the inside of a diaper, it just starts to smell funny, and makes them so much more high maintenance in laundry. flip snap covers with trifolded inserts are the most low maintenance diaper stash we've had.

Just have to say I've really enjoyed my 4.0's so far!

That's a hard question!

I really didn't like Flips in the beginning but now that DD is older I love Flips with a trifolded prefold!

Why do you have to pick one or the other? I use a combination of 4.0s and flips and its the perfect stash! Flips and prefolds at home, prestuffed 4.0s for out of the house and nighttime. I stuff them with flats.

I am a little OCD and like to have one type of diaper to wash and store.
