If youre making your own diapersThanks to Kara for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I've seen people complaining that they like the adjustability of Aplix/touchtape, but that their toddlers have learned to undo their diapers. I just started making my own fitted pockets, but have an idea that I'd like to share.

If you're making your own diapers and can do snaps (or are a WAHM), but want to have more adjustability, why not make a flap of fabric that attached to the top of the front of the diaper and snaps down over the Aplix?

This would keep the aplix from rolling and scraping the baby's stomach (another complaint I've seen) and would keep it away from little fingers. It shouldn't add that much bulk either if you make it out of a light-weight material.

You could even maybe use a soft flannel. A single layer serged on the edges might work, too. I'm envisioning something with two snaps, one at each side, with maybe one more in the middle if it seemed to gap. It might be a way to keep the aplix from contacting the baby in smaller sizes, too.

Edited to add: I guess I'm not the only one to think of this. Someone forwarded me this link to one that's being made.
