Pocket diapers are brilliant I think - as long as you prestuff them they are an all in one, and even if you dont, well its hardly difficult and doesnt require great dexterity. You dont even need to ask anyone to unstuff them when they're taken off, you can do that as you empty your diaper bag at the end of the day.
They get really clean because they come apart for washing. And because you can customise the stuffing, you dont need special diapers for different occasions, I just use one joeybunz during the day and two at night.
But the type of all in one with a snap in soaker would be just as good.
My experience of true all in ones (things like Kushies or Bumkins) in the past has been that the outer deteriorates because it cant keep up with the treatment you need to give the inner to keep it clean and hygenic and to get it dry. So even though they're a bit cheaper, if you're using them daily and washing that often, you may not even get six months use out of them.
