Re: What kind of closure do you like best?

I like front snapping the best at the moment... mainly because Bram is BARELY in mediums and with side snapping and aplix, problems arise. LOL

With the aplix, once I put it on as tight as it will go, the side of the front of the dipe will start slipping down past the "tab". Does that make sense? I guess if it had the aplix all the way across the tab, then it wouldn't be a problem. But the only ones I've had any experience with have one square of aplix at the end of the tab.

With side snapping, if you put it on the smallest setting, then you basically have to stuff the rest of the tab into the dipe. Not a big deal with fitteds I guess but the only one we have is an AI2. It came with 2 snap-ins, but since the tabs get all soaked most of the time (they're right there in the wet zone since I have a boy), I rarely use the second one.

Re: What kind of closure do you like best?

I didn't vote, because it really depends on whether it's a fitted or a cover to me. For fitteds I prefer front snaps, but for covers front aplix. I don't care for side closures much, with the one exception being Motherease Airflows. Side snaps are more awkward for me, and they tend to be confusing for my dh and older girls.

Side snap for me, but DH likes front snap. He gets confused with the SS for some reason

Re: What kind of closure do you like best?

Hi!~ I am new here, and this will be my first post!

I prefer front snaps over any other, because I think they stay on better, and they are easier to snap than side snap dipaers. Once I pinched my Little guys chunky thigh in a side snap diaper, because I could not see what I was doing! I change him on the floor, so having the snaps in front are best for me where I can see them properly! My favorite front snap dipes, are ...of course Preston's Pants!

I like front snap best because there is more adjustability than side snap, and it is easy to make sure you have the right fit the first time. EG. I know that DS is on the second set of snaps in on the top and bottom snaps on both sides in his FBs. If I send him to someone else, I can just tell them, and there is no guess work or readjusting as there sometimes is with aplix.

Also with a toddler who doesn't lay down (as DS didn't when we started CDing), I could snap one side, step him into that leg, and easily snap the other side without snapping him into it!!
