Replacing velcro on pockets isn't easy, if you want snaps email Suzanne now, she will change it for you I'm sure!

my opinion is that applix lasts longer nice looking than velcro. also applix is softer! but it will turn grey in a few washes..

we don't get leaks either no matter how huge gape there is! it depends how old is the baby and what is the inner fabric. if it is "not so good" fleece, it will leak..
