Thirsties Duo: snaps vs. aplix?

You mamas that love your Thirsties Duos:

Do you prefer them with snaps or with Aplix and why? I like the look of the snap closure better but I'm worried that getting a good fit around the waist & legs will be hit & miss without the infinite adjustability of the Aplix. The Aplix also seems more bulky than the snaps & I wonder if it will dig into DD's tummy when she starts sitting up more.

What is your experience? TIA!

I love the aplix for DD because her waist is really tiny and I have never been able to get a good fit with snaps on anything.
I know that there are many mamas that love the snaps though.

I have not used them on a little one. My dd is 16 months old and we use the snaps. She learned of take of the aplix so we went to snaps on everything. I don't have trouble getting them to fit. I love the way the fit her. I know I'm not much help but I love the snaps!!

We've always used aplix on our diaper covers. I feel like i get a better fit with aplix than I do with snaps. The only diaper covers I've had that the applix bothered baby with is Proraps.

I like aplix, because my DS always seems to be a size that's in between the snaps. I can get a better fit with aplix.

Re: Thirsties Duo: snaps vs. aplix?

I really wanted to like snaps but I have found that we are definately an aplix family. When DS was itty bitty I couldn't get a good fit with snaps and plus they took too long to do up when he was in the screaming-cause -I-hate-diaper-changes phase. He's a bit bigger and calmer at changes now but still doesn't doesn't appreciate me messing with snaps.
We've never had a leak with out Thirsties Duos and I like the fit I get with aplix!

Re: Thirsties Duo: snaps vs. aplix?

Thank you so much for your help, mamas. I've decided to go with the Aplix because I have the same trouble getting a good fit with the snaps on some of my fitteds. I really hate it when she's in between sizes and its either a possibly uncomfortable squeeze or a potential leak. I definitely don't want that to be the case with the cover! I've used XS thirsties with Aplix and LOVED them so I feel pretty good sticking with Aplix for size 2 duos. I don't know what I'll do if/when DD gets older and wants to undo the Aplix. Duct tape? We're not there yet and hopefully she doesn't do that!
