What kind of closure do you like best?

Just wondering which is your favorite kind of closure. I personally like aplix because it gets a better fit but my dh likes snaps cause the boys can't get them off! I totally hate side snapping but I know there are those that live by them. So which do you like best?

I like aplix for the same reason, and because its quicker. (DS is a wiggler) However, DS is just starting to take off his diapers, so I may have to switch to snaps. Since its winter though I might just start making sure he has pants over them, or really cute longies.

I normally like aplix for ease of use and better fit, but Seth has decided that taking diapers off is great fun, so I like snaps for when he isn't wearing any pants (like when he's in a aio). Under a cover though, aplix is just so much easier.

Side snapping all the way for me b/c Ds has figured out aplix and front snapping, plus I get a trimmer fit.

I'm one of those side snap lovers!

I like snaps cause I think they hold up better than aplix, plus I don't have to clean the linty's out of it or have to worry about it snagging stuff in the drier if the laundry tag comes open.

Mind you, I do have some aplix dipes, and they are definately quicker to get on if you have a wiggler. So it has it's virtues too!

But if I have a choice I'll always go for SS.

Re: What kind of closure do you like best?

I started out with only liking snaps, but once I tried Aplix I fell in love. For me, there is just more adjustability with Aplix, and its also quicker to put on (especially in the middle of the night when you are half asleep).
I also prefer it because it seems to better secure a nice fit around the thighs, which helps hold leaks in better.
