Snaps? Aplix? Which do you prefer? If you’re new to using cloth then even the terms may sound confusing. Both snaps and Aplix refer to the way you can fasten your cloth diapers on your baby. Snaps, as I’m sure you can imagine, simply snap into the diaper while Aplix (or AKA hook and loop) stick to the diaper.
Does it matter to you? A lot of it is preference so I’d like to submit my pros and cons lists.
Pros – Will not stick to anything else that is in the dryer or wash. Able to withstand wear better than Aplix because it doesn’t stick to everything!
Cons – Not conducive to a quick diaper change! More limitations on adjusting the size.
Pros – It’s sticky so you can change the diaper in a jiff. More control on adjusting the size around the waist.
These are just my initial thoughts on the two and their differences. Do you have a clear preference or do you have a stash that consists of both?
