In the past, we’ve discussed Prefolds + Flats vs. Fitted Cloth Diapers. Today we’re breaking down two more modern cloth diaper systems.
Your baby will be spending all of their time in diapers, so, considering all options when determining a suitable cloth diaper system is vital. Choosing what will work best for your family and lifestyle is key to a successful cloth diaper journey.
All in One Vs. All in Two
In the wonderful world of cloth diapering, an All in One (AIO) cloth diaper means that the absorbent cloth diaper and waterproof diaper cover are sewn together to create one piece. All in Two (AI2) means that the absorbent insert and the waterproof cover are two separate pieces that need to be snapped together to create a complete cloth diaper.
As with any item for purchase, added convenience and ease of use comes with a price and cloth diapers are no exception. An AIO diaper is the easiest, most convenient cloth diapering option you can get. This makes it more of an investment than its sister system - the AI2.
An AI2 cloth diaper system will be a much more economical option when deciding on a full set of cloth diapers. With an AI2, your insert and cover come separate, which allows you to re-use your cover 3-4 times before laundering. This means you only need about 6 waterproof covers for a full set (approximately 24) of absorbent inserts.
An AIO cloth diaper is all sewn together, meaning your covers match your inserts 1:1. This is where the added investment comes in. It also means you're washing your covers after every single use, which adds wear and tear.
Our AIO cloth diaper system is called the Wizard Uno. All in One diapers have a reputation for being hard to wash and dry, however, Mother-ease's EasyCare™ technology ensures a hygienic washability and quick drying time. The Wizard Uno's absorbent inner is offered in either organic cotton or our 100% polyester stay-dry fabric. The Wizard Uno is as convenient as a disposable diaper but without the waste.
Our AI2 cloth diaper system is called the Wizard Duo. When snapped together, our Wizard Duo essentially becomes a Wizard Uno. The Wizard Duo's absorbent Fitted Insert is available in either natural cotton or our 100% polyester stay-dry fabric. We also offer a special stay dry night time insert which has additional absorbency sewn in to allow for longer stretches between changes.
Visit the fabrics page on our website to learn the difference between the different fabrics we offer, so you can make the right decision on which absorbent inner to use on your little one.
Both the Wizard Uno and Duo are trim-fitting, convenient, and made with the elasticized waist (front and back) and leg openings for a perfect leak-free cloth diaper. Their design allows you to easily slip additional absorbent liners between the cover and the absorbent insert for naps or night-time. Still not sure what diaper system to choose?
