Nana's Bottoms AIO's - snaps or velcro?

We had Nana's Bottoms AIO's for the newborn stage some time ago and I think we had velcro closure (cannot recall for sure).

- Curious though, which do you like better for your NB's, snaps or velcro?
- And how trim do you find this diaper (compare to another popular brand or combo)?

- Also, any stink issues?



TIA for sharing

I've only used nana's bottoms in aplix, and I like them. They're pretty trim and I've had no stink issues.

The aplix is much more adjustable! I prefer it for the smaller sizes! They are really trim and I've not ever had any stink issues! Love them!

Re: Nana's Bottoms AIO's - snaps or velcro?

I have both and I prefer the aplix as the fit is more adjustable. Her snaps are also good though, and she has 4 snaps on each side (on the large size) which prevents wing droop, but if you are in a hurry, you can just snap two snaps and the diaper will be fine, too. They are very trim. I like that there are no rise snaps and wish I'd discovered them sooner, as I would have forgone OS diapers completely, had I known about Nana's Bottoms earlier.

Re: Nana's Bottoms AIO's - snaps or velcro?

These are quite possibly my favorite newborn diaper. Are they the *most* absorbent, no - but they do just fine IMO! I've always just gotten traditional PUL outers, birdseye soakers, and suedecloth or fleece against baby and they easily last 3 hours but we tend to change around every 2 unless baby is sleeping. They are VERY VERY trim!! I've never had any stink issues at all. They do take a bit to dry - a good 60 min dryer cycle but I've found that's typical with most AIOs.... I loved aplix since it had the most adjustability. My little guy had skinny little legs and we never once had a leak.


1st pic is about 3 hours old, 7lbs 3.4oz
2nd pic is about 3 weeks old and just at 7lbs

are those nb sizes or preemie?

I'm having her do a custom set of NB diapers for "Hope" and I can't wait

They are her newborn size and I seriously them. I'll be ordering a dozen for Aspen as soon as she restocks her PUL colors.

I had the aplix and absolutely loved them! They were trim, asorbbent, and not nearly as long in the dryer as I feared (though they did take longer than my flats).
