An All-in One Diaper is the most modern Cloth Diaper and is as close to a disposable as you can get. It has a waterproof outer shell to prevent leaks and a built in absorbent inner core. Available in different sizes, styles and various features depending on the brand.
Preparing New AIO
Preparing your new diaper will vary depending on the brand and materials. If it contains natural fibres such as hemp, bamboo and/or cotton, it will require more washes to remove natural oils and become absorbent. Most AIO diapers which require prep washes will be ready to use after a couple of washes, but keep in mind it will most like increase in absorbency with more washes. Polyester, Fleece and Microfibre material may only require one wash to prep. Follow manufacturers instructions on how to prepare your new All-in-One Diapers.
To maintain product warranty always follow manufacturers instructions.
Ease of Use
All-in-One Diapers provide the simplest diapering experience. A great choice if your little one goes to a daycare or a caregiver/ baby sitter who is not as comfortable with cloth as you are! Some AIOs are as easy as a disposable, like the AMP AIO diaper. No folding, tucking or even multiple prep washes. Others, like the One size Sweet Pea Bamboo AIO has a snap in/ removable booster and a long insert. While it may seem confusing at first, features like this offer a lot of versatility. The long insert allows you to adjust the absorbency to where you need it most front or back. Snap rise allows for sizing adjustment fro 8 to 35 lbs, and removable inserts make a really absorbent fibre (bamboo/cotton) dry faster.
