All in One Nappies: What Does This Mean?

In Search of the Best Cloth Nappies: All in One Nappies

All in One Modern Nappies – the goal of this article is to clarify for you what an ‘All In One’ nappy means – and to introduce you to some of the cloth nappy shops who offer these popular starter cloth nappies, arguably the most conveniently like a disposable nappy…

Our Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Our Nappy Experts explain One Size Nappies for you in simple ways.

These nappy retailers and nappy makers have been asked to describe the AIO nappy for you in their own way, depending on the time thay had available to contribute when I asked; you’ll see quick, concise definitions as well as detailed explanations that reveal more about the composition of the nappy fabrics, materials and designs. I am certain you will discover everything you need to know about them in their brief or detailed descriptions – I did! Once you know, pop over and look at their AI1 nappies with your enhanced understanding of the features and benefits of the All in One nappy.

Laura of Cloth Nappy Co:

An all in One nappy consists of a waterproof outer layer and an absorbent inner layer with an extra absorbent insert attached.  All in One’s are usually voted the most convenient cloth nappies to use as you simply put the nappy on your baby – no fuss required!  All in One’s can come in One Size Fits All or according to weight range. Keep in mind that they do generally take longer to dry as there is more material.

Kelly from Pepper Place:

For me, a complete nappy in one piece. No extra bits to stuff in, or snap in-all the waterproofing and absorbency is stuck permanently together. Lots of nappies are marketed as all-in-ones but have lots of pieces-it’s one of my pet hates!

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

A nappy that has an outer waterproof shell, inner stay-dry liner and an absorbent core all sewn into the nappy.

Now you know exactly what an All In One  nappy is and the best features and benefits of this style of modern nappies.

To summarise this series of articles about the meaning of the various nappy styles, Amy of WeePantz clarifies the main components of modern nappies, to reassure you that it is actually easy to choose the nappy style that suits your lifestyle, baby and budget:

Essentially, all nappies are comprised of similar components, remembering this helps us to not get confused when looking at new brands or styles of nappies.

The main components of a nappy are:

1. Absorbency (whether it be sewn in on an AIO, Stuffed in a pocket or the entire nappy in a fitted or a flat or a prefold)

2. Waterproofing (covers, PUL layers, woollen soakers etc)

3. Stay Dry Layer (flushable or washable liners, or the microfleece/suedecloth layer in a nappy)

4. Fastening (Velcro, snappis and snaps)

When we remember that, I think its easy to figure out what a nappy needs to have in it, and how we want our nappy system to work. For example if you want it all in one you get an AIO, if you don’t mind attaching stuff, then you can look into other options like pockets, AI2’s, fitteds etc. A parent can decide what is right for them rather than being confused by all the options available.

Thank you to all our nappy experts for their contributions,
