I'm just wondering if anyone has used the MCN with velcro tabs. Are they any good. I'm thinking of getting some because my bub doesn't stay still much during nappy changes these days, he rolls over and tries to crawl off and I thought that velcro tabs would be quicker than the ones I am using now.

Thanks.

I've been using Greenkids which are velcro for 21months on DS.

I prefer velcro for ease of use and speed  .DP prefers velcro too, he  struggles getting a good fit with snaps on DS ( I'm ok with snaps)
IMO velcro is easier to use but nappies with snaps don't wear as much and look newer for longer although I use my nappies until they die anyway so it doesn't bother me

The velcro all starts to look a bit tired after a while ( months or years mostly not too quick). You also need to make sure they are folded back onto the laundry tabs for the wash so they don't grab other nappies & covers etc.

Thanks for that information.  Quick and easy is what I am looking for right now, I didn't think of the fact that my husband may actually use them if they are velco, he refuses to use the MCN, he doesn't like them.

Ones & Two's are awesome.

They have velcro tabs and are multi sized and can be snapped down to make them smaller or larger. They are also a great price especially if you buy their get into cloth kit.

I prefer itti bitti but o&t are a great going out nappy because they are so easy to use.

I like them. DH has sausage fingers so refers them also. DS went through a brief phase of undoing his velcro nappies but this has passed.

My velcro ones are Swaddlebees, Grovia and Happy Heinys. So far no wear problems at all.

Baby Beehinds do a Velcro one as well.

Depends.

We have Tots Bots with velcro and they are  the best nappies we own for DD.

We also have Pikapus with velcro and the velcro has been mangled to the point that it won't stick - they started going that way almost immediately and no amount of cleaning the velcro helps.

After 4 years of constant use I have just changed my 15 bumGenius velcros and Elastics.... Best thing ever!

I use BabyBeehinds with Velcro and they've lasted more than 2 years so far without the Velcro wearing out.
My daughter's never undone her nappies thank god! It was my worry with Velcro ones but it's never been an issue.

And if you don't have disposables around for your husband, he HAS to use MCN's original.gif Hide them where he can't find them lol.

We have Bumgenius and Thirsties in velcro. They are the only MCNs that DH and grandparents can use properly (as in, they never adjust the snaps tight enough for some odd reason).

18 months on and the velcro are still in good condition (and I rarely stick the tabs back before they go in the wash). DS has never tried to remove it himself either.

Also, I have a selection of small toys, books and knick knacks that DS can occupy himself with while I'm changing him. He doesn't roll around and stays fairly still for me.

I have a couple of velcro. They are fine for speed of use, but not so fine when you are in the kitchen and hear that tell tale velcro sound from the bedroom. Worse is when you don't hear it and you find child, nappy and poo in a cot, each in a different corner.

I don't find snaps take longer.

I have Bumgenius. I have the snap ones and velcro ones. LOVE them but the velcro ones are particularly awesome because you don't have to stuff them.

Thanks for these replies. I have some research to do now.  

Raindotdot, I have some things to amuse himself with while on the change table but it doesn't always work, he just rolls over with them in his hands. He doesn't say still very long ever.  

I have some success by doing up the snap nappies and then putting them on him like pants, just have to make sure he's pointing downwards after I've put them on.

This. Though I can't say my Pikapu velcro is mangled, they come unstuck in the wash and snag on each other. I still like these nappies.

My bub also went through a phase of opening her velcro nappies. She seems to have stopped, but I still like to put pants on over velcro nappies, whereas snap ones can be worn by themselves (I reckon they look neater too). I go through phases of liking velcro better than snap and vice versa, so I'm glad to have both in my stash.
