If you do up the prefold somehow you can...like with a snappi or with pins, but you can't just lay the diaper into a side snapping cover because they don't hold it tight enough to baby to keep the diaper from shifting...

The only side snap cover I have that I can do that with my my sugarpeas. All the other ones are too big or too roomy so the pf just kinda slides down inside the cover into almost a ball. Maybe you could try a front snap wrap cover instead of aplix?

I have had no problems with trifolding and laying in a side snapping sugarpeas, stacinator or side aplix ivy rose. I'll have to try it w/my fuzeasy and lyk

Yep, you could do that with a side aplix, but not a side snap.

The Bummis wraps have smaller tabs, so it might be harder for her to get a hold of or to get a tight enough grip on it to take it off. Just a thought!

Pins, Pins, Pins (I really need a smilie for that, I say it so much). You can pin the covers on. If the covers are PUL with velcro, just pin the tabs to each other. You can do this even if they do not overlap. Lift one tab a little bit, put the pin through the end. Lift the other tab likewise and put the pin through it. Then close the pin.

(Did I mention my little one is named Houdini?)
