All-In-One Cloth Diapers: how do you use them
When it comes to cloth diapering, you have a lot of options, and it can get a bit overwhelming. So in today's blog post, we are going to talk about all-in-one (AIO) diapers and I'll be showing you, in detail, the three different AIO diapers I currently have available for you to try.
What is all All-In-One (AIO) Diaper?
An All-In-One (AIO) diaper is a cloth diaper style that has a waterproof exterior and an absorbent interior that's sewn into the cover. When the diaper gets soiled, it gets rinsed and washed as one piece.
What are the Benefits of an AIO Diaper?
- Usually a One piece diapering system
- They go on the same way as disposables
- Considered easier to use since the inserts are attached to the diaper and do no require folding
- A little more expensive than other styles,but easier to use
Here's a look at the different AIO diapers that are currently available to you
As you can see in the picture above, the Bum genius has two sewn in inserts.
The benefits of this design
- You can adjust how you place the liners for where baby wets the most
- You can add extra absorbency thanks to the pouch in the liner
- it's good practice for insert placement with other types of diapers
- you have to fold the insert, you may not want to do the work
- The inserts have can move and you get a leak
From the picture above, you can see that the liner for the Apple cheeks diaper is sewn in on both sides.
Benefit of this design
- It's wash an wear
- no folding or placing the liner.
- you can always add more absorbency under the existing liner
- You can't adjust the absorbency in front or back, boys and girls pee in different spots
As you can see in the picture above, this all in one comes with one sewn in flap, and an extra insert to add more absorbency.
Benefits of this design
- you can customize where your diaper is most absorbent
- You get to practice placing inserts for other diaper styes
- It's more work for you
Which style is best?
That's really a personal preference, and will vary from baby to baby. The cloth diapers I liked best for my son, didn't fit my daughter quite right.
The nice thing about cloth, and the variety, is that you don't have to be brand loyal. You can try out a few different types, find what you like, and resell that isn't working for you.
PLEASE, let me know if you have any further questions.
