Aio

I support any cloth diaper solution that works for somebody. But I am wary of recommending AIO diapers to people.

I moved away from them because of their cost and lack of longevity. They are expensive. For the newborn stage, AIO diapers are more expensive than disposables if only one baby wears them. Also, they are unlikely to last through three or four kids (while prefolds and well made fitteds will).

Some people also have trouble washing and drying AIO diapers too.

I think there is a honeymoon stage with AIOs. They don't seem nearly as popular with people who've diapered with cloth for years and years.

We're in the midwest, so diapers dry in the dryer all winter. AIOs always take multiple cycles for me so they weren't an option.

Asiago, I'm glad you've found the diaper for you!

Please tell me this is not the case with pockets, too.

I have a great relationship with my Rumparooz. Will the love last?

It could. I have seen people use FuzzyBunz for years and years. I can't seem to get more than about two years out of a pocket diaper, but I've seen others do much better than that.

It could be the honeymoon phase that ChetMC mentioned, I don't know. I just know that I don't have to wrestle with snappi's (or snappis grabbing my own clothing and making holes), covers (never could find 'the' cover that worked for us), or a 12 month old that rolls around like an alligator waiting for me to get my act together.

I ended up buying Kushies, maybe not the fanciest AIO out there but I'm fond of them

hah...I love my AIO's and shockingly so does dh. We have the Gro Via aio's and they dry in less then a dryer cycle amount of time, I throw 2 dry towels in and tada! They are 100% organic cotton lined and I feel strongly this was a much better choice then disopsables. I know however if I had purchased aio's with fleece/sythetic I would be sad. I have no intrest in crazy stripping methods and all that other what not. I will say however that our night time diaper is the bum genius pockets. The grovias do not do well overnight (from 8:30-7am with a 4 mth old).

We've had our RAR's for just over a year. Two of our original 13 just had the elastic go on them (plus another Rocky Mountain). I think it's because they were used so often in the beginning, not part of a much larger stash. I'm trying to find someone to replace the elastic and they'll hopefully last us longer. I agree, I love my Rumparooz!

I love my AIOs (to be perfectly fair, they're what are now often called AI2s as the soaker snaps in)

They last FANTASTICALLY- a year to 18 months of constant hard use for the larges.

At less than $110 shipped for 6, they're less pricey than many choices.

Agreed. I've had 5 babies and am on number 6 and with my last and first I tried AIO's. I prefer Dipaer Rite prefolds and covers. Best system I've used and I spent many hundreds on beautiful WAHM AIO's. I loved the prints, hemp fleece etc; but the time they take to try and cost don't add up for me.
