Let's see... I have owned two AI2s (though they were billed as AIOs, I suppose they would techincally be AI2s).<br><br>
Both were of the same general principle: basically a cover with a snap-in soaker. Thus, two parts (a soaker and a cover), that came together in one piece to basically make an AIO.<br><br>
Technically a 'true AIO' would be like the VB AIO -- internal soaker and all.... though I suppose a sewn-in external soaker would also count as an AIO.<br><br>
Anything billed as a WIO would have to be a WI2, really, since you'd have to lanolize your wool, but wouldn't be able to do that with fabric attached... so the soaker part would have to come off.<br><br>
(gosh.. hope that makes sense!)

Okay. So I was interested initially in making pockets because I didn't want to do AIO's. If I were to do a fitted with PUL outer (or hidden PUL) and snap in a soaker (or stitch it just at the back so it's fly-out) would that be like an AI2?? That sound even easier than a pocket! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I think it's just semantics.<br><br>
I would call a sewn-in external soaker an All in One, b/c the diaper doesn't separate into two parts (i.e. nothing snaps off, is removable, etc).<br><br>
Here's another example of what I would call an All in Two... Poly Fleece outer, microfleece inner, trifold hemp fleece soaker topped in microfleece - that snaps in and out:<br><a href="http://mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=415775" target="_blank">http://mothering.com/discussions/sho...d.php?t=415775</a>
