Re: Snaps or Aplix???

Aplix all the way. I ahte snaps, they ARE much prettoer looking but they don't fit "just right" like aplix does and the aplix is SO much easier for quick diaper changes. I have found some REALLY cute dipes that I wouldn't buy because they didn't offer an aplix closure. Just my

I prefer snaps. I will use velcro, but I would go with snaps first any day for the reasons stated above.

Re: Snaps or Aplix???

Personally other than FBs, snaps never worked well for us/DS, so overall I'd always say aplix, or better say touchtape as I found latter to be stronger, hence harder for the DC to get off.

Re: Snaps or Aplix???

snaps all the way! aplix gets that 'lint' in it and its starting to get where my younger ds wants to take his dipes off and aplix makes it that much easier for him to do so...i'd definatly invest in a snap press

Could you pm me a pic of side aplix??? I'm interested in making some of those!

Snaps! Not only are they easier when washing time comes, and they last longer than aplix, but they also resist toddler torture a little better. My very smart 3 year old (who can identify the right key on my keychain, unlock my car door and stick the key in the ignition) cannot figure out how to undo side snaps on his trainers. Side snaps are my fave!

Re: Snaps or Aplix???

I like aplix. The only reason I like it better is ds is long and thin. The snaps on FB just don't fit snug enough around the middle no matter what holes they are in.
