Pros: holds leaks, cute, fit well, affordable, easy, great for baby sitters, straight forward concept
Cons: aplix becomes useless after a few months of heavy use, cost
These are the diapers I reach for first.
They work overnight*. The baby sitter understands them. The husband understands them. They fit the baby. They come in cute overs and are priced OK for pocket diapers.
CONS: The aplix starts to curl and become useless after some months of heavy use. (There is a replacement kit for $1, but I really have better things to do than be fixing fairly new diapers.) Easy for toddler to rip off of himself. ;) (He now wears PANTS all the time, no more running around in a diaper.)
*For overnight we use both the newborn and expandable stuffer and a stay dry insert.
**I have not used the snap version of this diaper. It would probably solve the velcro wearing out - but then it wouldn't be so easy for the baby sitter to put on a squirmy child.
