Call me crazy but I am an Aplix loving mama and sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one. I know that can't be the case; surely one of you reading likes Aplix. My oldest, Brennan, was very easy to distract during diaper changes. When he was still in diapers snaps were still fairly new to the cloth diapering scene so my stash consisted primarily of diapers that had Aplix closures. Then my daughter Kendall came into the world and the cloth diapers that I used to make her stash were snaps. That's when I realized that I preferred Aplix over snaps. If you prefer snaps or simply haven't tried Aplix you may be asking yourself, "Bert, why do you like Aplix? It wears and tears with washes. Sooner or later you have to replace it and what a pain that will be!" That may be true but there are many other benefits to Aplix and I'm ready to list them out to you:
- Fast diaper changes: If you have a squirmy baby like my little Kendall then all of those snaps can be a major pain. Aplix makes for an uber fast diaper change. You don't have to match up snaps to get the perfect fit. Wham bam thank you ma'am, diaper change doneso!
- Less intimidating for those who aren't familiar with cloth diapers. My mom always comments on the number of snaps on some of my newer diapers. It's not that it's more difficult to use a diaper that has snaps but in my opinion it's the intimidation factor.
- No indents on baby's skin. Now, this is probably more telling in how I put a diaper on than anything else but I have found that some snaps leave an indentation on the hips of my daughter. Is it a deal breaker? No, but it just further cements my feelings on Aplix.
Both! I like an aplix fitted with a snapped Duo wrap.
Um, last night I woke up with a start to find a whimpering 3.5 year old standing by the bed. His diaper cover with aplix had opened and was down at his ankles. By the time I had changed him into a new diaper I was wide awake. That is why I like snaps.
When my son was younger I preferred aplix overall but now that he can (and will) rip them off, I can only use certain brands in aplix.
I’m definitely an Aplix mom! They are so much easier to get fastened – wiggly baby or not!
I’m definitely an Aplix Babe! I feel like I can never get the right fit with snaps, with aplix, the right fit is always there! As for the kids taking off their diapers…my son just wears pants. He’s never messed with his diaper otherwise.
