...I can't decide among Velcro, side-snap, front-snap, or pull-on. I like and dislike all of them in different ways.

I only use pull-on...all wool. It really seems to hold the diaper on tight without having bulky areas when the snaps or velcro meet up.

I all around love velcro, but my daughter was never much for taking her diaper off, I have heard that snaps are much better in that situation.

I voted side-snapping but it's really a tie between side and front snapping for me. I guess I picked side because I really like the air flow concept of my Gen-Y cover, I just don't like the price. Front snap gives a really trim look, but that's not always necessary and looser fit is, IME, better for baby.

I voted pullon- dh and I both love our dappi nylon pullons (great under clothes). Only thing is you have to snappi/pin. So my bsww are more versatile, and fit great too- I really like both.

It's a tie between front-snapping and side-snapping. I have some of each and I love them all. Fishnoodles are my FAVE! I just got an adorable front-snapper and I love it so!

I like velcro. Goes on quick.. And you get a tight fit. We mostly trifold so a pull on would be a problem because I'd have to fanagle a snappi.. I could but I dont want to all the time.. And side snapping or snaping in general is rough because its difficult to get a good fit with snaps. Side snapping gets on my nerves as well because there is this extra fabric to fold in the front (wings). Airflows arent like that but again.. snaps just take to long... With velcro you just lay and diaper in and fasten. OR just fold diaper, snappi and fasten cover.. With snaps its fold diaper, fasten, snap 1, snap 2, snap 3, snap 4. Just longer IMO. Of course its faster probably with pull ons...fold a diaper, fasten, yank a cover on. You could just have a few of each.

I like BSWW because it's easy, Bummis Snap because it's secure, MEAF because it provides full coverage and a bit of breathability, Dappi pants because they're cheap and they work, wool because it's soft and breathable. Too many covers!
