I'm pretty new to CD'ing, but so far I like the look of side snaps better, even though I find them a little harder to put on.<br><br>
Which do you prefer and why?

I like side snaps mostly since it prevents wing droop. I also like the front snaps that have hip snaps (no wing droop). However I also like elbees since I don't get wing droop even though they are front snapping. I guess I really don't like wing droop.

I started out loving front snaps, but recently Ethan's shape has changed and now I am all about the side snappers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I like front snaps...they are easier for me to adjust to get a good fit.<br><br>
However....I sometimes do get frustrasted with wing droop.

I like side snaps best. I think it looks better, and you can get a better fit. I think it's more adjustable if you need it tighter around the waist, but looser around the legs. Although I do love my SOS and Mutt's <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I like front snapping the best--however, for my toddler I sometimes like/usually like side-snap. I started like them when he was around 18 months. For my baby I only like front-snap. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I used to like side snaps because of the clean look and the ability to adjust the legs separately from the waist. Now though, I am all about front snaps because they are so much faster to snap up, a plus with my wiggly baby. I also find that a single row of snaps accomodates his buddha belly better by letting the diaper curve out and around it rather than trying to go over it.<br><br>
It is really your baby's shape that makes the most difference, I think. Personal preference a close second.
