Easiest cover for prefold?

I unexpectedly got a job for a couple months. It's a great opportunity so my mom will be keeping my 7 month old. I'm new to cloth, but I have a pretty big stash of prefolds and thirsties covers. I'm trying to avoid spending a lot, but I want to make it easier on my mom. She has some arthritis and I think the snaps are hard on her hands, so...

I'm thinking I need a Velcro/Aplix cover that I can pre-stuff. Any suggestions??? I've been looking at best bottoms and I may go that route, but I was trying to come up with a way to use the prefolds instead.
Thanks!

I like flip covers to tuck a trifolded prefold into or I use the prefolds as stuffers for my BG pocket diapers.

I've never tried those, but I just found someone selling 4, so that will be a great start! Thanks!

I agree with the Flips! If you decide to go with something you don't have to stuff, BG Elementals are what I got for my MIL (with aplix). It's all one piece, so she just has to put it on like a sposie!

I don't care for flips. The prefolds always bunch and slip. I LOVE pockets!! Even the cheap Sunbaby or alva pockets.
