When I started this blog in March 2008, one of my first posts was “My Top 5 All-In-Ones“. As I read over that post I am amazed at the changes cloth diapers have undergone in the past year!
Cloth diaper makers have seen the demand for an easy, affordable, and absorbant All In One cloth diaper and answered back.
After thousands of hours of cloth diaper use I have compiled a list of my favorite All In Ones (or All In Twos). I will list them in order, starting with my top favorite.
#1: BumGenius Organic. Are you tired of me saying over and over that I love this diaper? If I could make my stash one diaper it would be BumGenius Organic AIO. And to be even more specific they would be snaps and only in the “new” colors. Sterling even has a Zinnia (pink) that he proudly wears.
What makes BumGenius Organic AIO my favorite? They are trim, absorbent, onesize, organic, and good color choices. What else could a cloth diaper user ask for? Here is a past review I’ve written: bG Organic w/ snaps. I have one with aplix that I have had for a long time and although it still works the tabs are curling and very pilly.
#2: Sposoeasy. Who can argue with simplicity? The simplicity of Sposoeasys are what make them my #2 cloth diaper. They aren’t perfect (laundry tab area still bugs me) but they’ve always performed at 100% for us. No leaks, super trim, dry fast and affordable.
I have 3 brown and 2 black and when diaper laundry is done they end up being the first used. There is nothing to be added or done to a Sposoeasy (unless you lay in one of the doublers). No rise adjustments, no stuffing, no folding or situating the soaker. Just lay under baby and fasten. I have only used the aplix version of the Sposoeasy AIO cloth diapers.
From the Sposoeasy website (www.bluepenguin.biz):
The SposoEasyTM is simply the best all-in-one diaper with natural fabric on the market today: the trimmest, softest natural cloth diaper out there!
It was developed over more than six months and provides leak proof leg openings with no bindings to leave red marks; an adjustable fit at the waist with either aplix or snaps; a quick-dry attached doubler that easily accommodates a second or third doubler for night diapering; and a soft knit PUL exterior shell that is available in seven colors or white. There is no other diaper out there that provides all this and natural, 100% cotton next to baby’s delicate skin.
Designed to be trim, leak-proof and comfortable for baby, the SposoEasyTM comes in three different natural fabrics: cotton, unbleached cotton, organically grown cotton and an antimicrobial hemp. Extremely functional, the SposoEasyTM doesn’t lack for style! Available in either aplix or snap versions, there are also seven colors (sage green, chocolate brown, aqua, black, lilac, raspberry pink and buttercup yellow) or white from which to choose. Please note that there are slight variations in the hue of the white soft knit PUL exterior shell. This is completely normal and is not an indication of any problems with the diaper.
#3: Gro Baby. The new kid on the block that quickly became a leader in the cloth diaper industry. I have 6 Gro Baby shells w/ numerous snap-ins and I use them all in a couple of days.
I love being able to tear out the wet insert and snap in a new one. I will reuse the same shell if it isn’t really wet. If I went too long between changes I’ll toss the wet shell to the side and use a dry one. It’s not unusual to see a Gro Baby shell laying on my bedroom floor or the living room. Our changing station is either the bed or floor
I use the Gro Baby cloth diapering system at night with confidence. When I do, I use a Gro Baby booster. As I stated in my Gro Baby review, the velcro material, inner mesh and snap ins are all amazing!
I have preordered the soon-to-be released vanilla snaps Gro Baby from my friend Leslie, owner of Cloth Diaper Superstore. They have a release date in June. I can’t wait!
#4: Bum Ware Quickdry All In Two. Bum Ware is the only diaper in my list that I am not currently using. I used this diaper with Paisley and sold it when she potty trained. The Bum Ware Quickdry All In Two is very similar to the Sposoeasy as far as simplicity. Bum Ware has a super strong aplix closure and I really like the unexposed aplix tabs.
Sewn in soaker AIOs are designed to be as easy to use as disposables.
No soaker stuffing, no covers, no problems!
These are made to be EASY!
Hook and loop fasteners for a perfect fit.
Serged for superior durability.
Hidden elastic around the legs to keep everything in.
2 inner body layers of cotton flannel.
Four layer flannel soaker pad or contour snap in soaker, your choice.
Polyurathane laminate (PUL) outer.
Fold back laundry tabs to prevent diaper chains.
Fully washer and dryer safe.
Each diaper comes with a 4 layer flannel contour doubler
#5: Softbums PerfectFit All In Two. Softbums cloth diapers have an awesome toggle leg adjustment. This feature in itself makes it one of my favorites. I love that it adjusted perfectly to my newborn and could be easily readjusted to fit my 2yr old.
Cloth diapers continue to get better and better every year. I can’t even begin to imagine what the industry will have for us a year from now!
I’d love to hear what your favorite All In Ones or All In Twos are. I’m always getting cloth diapers sent to me for review (I have a couple en route!) and I never know when I’ll get the next big thing!
