Do you have the kind with the internal soaker? I ordered 3, 2 with however they came and 1 with an external snap in soaker. I do think they are very trim and work very well for my newborn, but I'm hating the internal soaker! How can I be sure it's totally dry in there?

So all of you who like them, do you have the internal soaker or the snap in kind?

My VB AIO's have an internal (my dd can't use snap-ins) and I really like them. I can tell they are dry just by feeling the inside of the dipe. When they aren't quite dry they feel slightly damp. When I dry them I usually stick them in the dryer with everything else (these are my only dipes that have internal soakers) and let them go for the full drying cycle. Then I just hang them over a chair overnight to finish drying. This has been working for me as I wash all my diapers before bed at night. So in the morning all my diapers are ready to go.

I have 2 with internal soakers and they take FOREVER to dry and we have a very efficient dryer. However, I don't mind hanging them on the drying rack overnight after they have finished a cycle in the dryer. They are always dry in the morning and I can tell my sqeezing the soaker (any diaper should be dry after hanging in a laundry room overnight - I should hope. :LOL). But, I definitely prefer the external soaker. I have a girl, though and can see how internal soakers would be better for a boy.

I have one with an internal soaker and one without. I love the internal soaker because it is absolutely the most trim diaper I have. I dry all my dipes in two dryer cycles, the first on low - then I remove pockets and AIO shells, then the second cycle I dry them with whatever load of laundry was just washed - usually on high. Both of my VBs go into both dryer cycles and are totally dry when done. I figure I would have to run the dryer for the clothes anyway so I am not wasting extra energy.

I am also really beginning to love internal soakers on fitteds as well. It is just so much simpler, no tucking or snapping. I just saw that Mutts are being offered with an internal soaker and I really want to try one of those.

I love internal soakers for fitteds as well (SOS are my favorite), but for some reason I feel like an AIO with a waterproof layer doesn't get as "clean" when the soaker is internal (unlike a fitted that allows all of the water/detergent to penetrate the soaker). Do I really need to worry about this or is the internal soaker getting clean enough?
