Preferred Qualifications: Should be made from a durable inner material (e.g. not flannel). Outer material should be good quality. Soaker should be sewn on rather than snapped on.

Disclaimer: This does not apply to newborns; if I had another newborn I would probably do Snugglebottoms with Dappi nylon pants. Also, there is nothing in the slightest wrong with a stash consisting entirely of DSQ prefolds and Swaddlebees ABC Snap Wraps.
Contenders: Proraps AIO, old-style Bumkins AIO, new-style Bumkins AIO, Bum-Ware Original Quick-Dry AIO, Very Baby Very Basic AIO, Bottombumpers AIO, Sposoeasy flannel AIO, Sposoeasy fleece AIO. Others?
I seriously am going to buy one of each of these, use them on DD2 and figure out what the strengths and weaknesses are. Would anyone be interested in seeing a sort of blog or web site record of this?
