I did! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
But, I really, really, really hate aplix! I took the aplix off with a stitch ripper and then put my snaps on. It took a couple of days for me, but it was worth it!

What do you hate about Aplix? I have a stash of flannel diapers I made with no closures yet, and I was going to put aplix on them. I don't know how to do snaps, but I guess I could send them off for snaps. Not sure what to do?

Joni, snaps vs. aplix is totally a preference thing. Some people really love aplix, and some people really love snaps.<br><br>
I like aplix and snaps both... They both have their pros and cons. Aplix is more adjustable, and it's easy for caregivers who are used to sposies (although my parents have never had a problem with my snapping diapers - they're easier than the pins they used on us!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">). Snaps don't mess up your fabric or FOE in the wash.

I like the fit of aplix but it just washes up horribly in the washer. I love how snap wear, hardly at all. It does take a while to get the hang of snaps but this is how I snap. I first snap the first snap on the wing onone side to fit her hip and leg comfortably then go to the other side and snap the first snap on the wing on that side to fit her leg and hip comfortable on that side, then I snap the rest of the snaps on the other side and then do the other side incase I have to over lap the snaps. It's quicker than is sounds.

Sorry to be so emphatic. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
It is totally a personal preference thing. I don't like aplix because it hangs up on stuff in the wash and I hate the noise. Plus, it gets all pilly.<br><br>
Aplix worked for me for years until I got a snap press. Your dipes will be fine with aplix! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
