I like aplix bc they are so adjustable. And the covers I have with snaps (for sizing) - some of the snaps are impossible to unsnap and some just about fall apart and won't stay snapped.

I know aplix wears out . . . but mine hasn't yet (fingers crossed!)

I HATE snaps!! Luckily, I only have 2 dipes with them. They are hard to snap and I can't seem to get a perfect fit. And DH can NOT handle them.

Well, when I am changing diapers I like aplix best, but when I am doing the laundry, I definitely prefer snaps!

I HIGHLY prefer snaps because of the laundry issue and I love the fit I get with them. I use mostly FB's in my stash and love it. Ive had aplix in the past and always hated it to the point that I bought my own snap press and now convert any diaper I have to snaps.

I like them both equally except if I had to choose I would say snaps because of the laundry.....even with fold back laundry tabs I still end up with some sort of laundry snake!

I used to love aplix, it's so adjustable and I never had any problems with it wearing out, but for some reason it gives DS a sore spot on his tummy. Maybe cause he's so chunky!! Never had that problem with DD. So I'm switching to snaps. I like them too, no fit problems yet.

Aplix! I have a hard time getting a good fit with snaps, and I have a hard time snapping them quickly, without feeling like I'm pushing too hard on DS's tummy.

SNAPS! Love them. No issues with fit as all my tabs have some stretch to them, and I like that they stay looking new and don't harm the other diapers like hook and loop can.

I love snaps! My whole stash is snaps except for 12 that were for when DD was a NB. We get a great fit with them and I love that they still look new after every wash.

depends on the dipe! I love aplix because of the fit i get, but its starting to wear out on a bunch of my dipes. I hate when i have to snap things unevenly. bothers me for some reason lol. Also my snap BGs seem to leak out the front. Not sure why.

Snaps here. He can undo the Aplix and we can get a better fit for him on the snaps.

I think for the infant and younger baby stage I prefer aplix, but for older babies and toddlers I much prefer snaps.

I don't mind either, but I prefer aplix. I've actually NEVER had a laundry snake!

I like s-hooks and snaps but my oh does not and I too can appreciate the simplicity of aplix. I get so frustrated with how beat up it looks so quickly though and a few of the brands it just started to lose it's stick too quickly. I like to have some around though as daddy does a lot of diaper changes and I like having aplix around for when someone else offers tochange him. I don't like scaring them away from the cloth too early.

I liked aplix better at first. But soon it was a problem because all the aplix diapers Lily would take off.

Now I convert all diapers to snaps, she doesn't take those off. We also still use diaper pins with some.

I prefer aplix just because they're a tiny bit quicker and you can make the fit exactly how you want it. That being said, I have mostly snaps because my BG 3.0 aplix were wearing and I also knew they'd be harder for a toddler to get off.
