My next grovia question :)

Do you prefer snaps or Velcro? I like the looks of snaps but the adjustability of Velcro. Are the snaps pretty adjustable? Wich is your favorite?

I have both. Snaps for home, velcro for daycare and when they're in between snaps.

The Velcro is definitely more adjustable than the snaps. I have both closures. I like them equally. The Velcro is very sturdy on them!

I prefer snaps. No laundry chains I prefer single rows of snaps too. I find I easier to figure out. The tabs are stretchy.
I had Velcro ones & they are very adjustable especially if you find yourself in between snap settings. Strong Velcro too!

velcro. no laundry chain issues if you use the loops to put over the tabs. And I couldn't get a good fit with their snaps.

I have both and like both. When I wash the Velcro I Velcro to itself and turn it insideout, that way they don't stick to each other.

I use the snaps, but I don't have a single hook and loop diaper in my entire stash.... Because I'm too lazy to cope with remembering to fasten the tabs properly before washing. Snaps are lower maintenance and longer lasting.... I do have 3 hook and loop shells for when nana visits, or to lend to a friend to try cloth!

Both are nice, started with Velcro, traded out for snaps eventually. I find the top fabric on the snaps softer than the aplix...

I wondered this too... If it was much more pliable. On this note, do you think both ate comfy to sit in?

This is the only type of velcro diaper I will use. The 'loop' panel is very soft and flexible on all mine, and the aplix is the softest most pliable I've used as well.
