I love the Flip diaper system! I love that I can reuse the covers and not have so much laundry and that rhwy dry quickly on the rack as opposed to an all in one style. I've been able to get a good fit with the snaps. I haven't had trouble with the elastic wearing out. But you will notice that your baby might grow to a bigger fit, and then later go back down to a tighter one, just with filling out and stretching up, etc. This is one of my favorite colors. It does say to wash the darker colors by themselves first but we didn't and didn't have a problem. We just love these!
