Aplix pocket suggestions?

DS is in a home daycare that's been willing to use cloth diapers, but no matter how many times I show them/ask them not to unsnap the sizing on the one-size pockets we use (a mix of BG, FB, RaR), they keep forgetting. And then DS wets through because the diapers are too big!

I'm thinking about switching to aplix/velcro in order to make it easier for my daycare. Hubby has also said it would be easier on him (DS is 8 months and has gotten VERY squirmy when being changed).

Any suggestions for what brands to look for? I would prefer to stay with one-size pockets but am open to other suggestions.

I second the blueberry. The aplix can not be beat. My hubby begged me for more aplix and our blueberries are great. I have also tried BG and Thirsties and by FAR blueberry is much stronger.

Toys Bots have great aplix. They are technically a sleeve AIO but have a pocket.

I'd say either Blueberry, 4.0's or even Kawaii.

Re: Aplix pocket suggestions?

I guess I'm the only one seeing the contradiction in the OP-If they're unsnapping the rise and stuff sticking with one size may not be the option you want. No matter if you're using snaps or aplix for the waist adjustment with OS, having the OS snap adjustments will still enable them to unsnap and resnap the rise snaps incorrectly.

Have you considered looking at sized diapers instead? If you're set on one size maybe something with an internal adjustment system like Fuzzibunz would be better?
