AIO: What are the Benefits of the All in One nappy?

Spring Green Promise Nappy Sponsors – Congo Advice #8

AIO nappies are great for convenience – you don’t have to worry about putting in any inserts or anything.

Used like a disposable nappy, only your All-in-One is Washable.

The Sponsors of the Spring Green Promise Nappies are your Nappy Doulas for this series of ‘Congo Questions’.

All Spring Sponsors were invited to contribute their expertise. Each donated a special cloth nappy as a giveaway prize to become an ambassador for ‘Nappy Change’ as it stops a disposable heading to landfill each time it is worn. You can register at any time to play in the current or a future round.

I’m pleased to have contributions from a number of your Green Promise Nappy Sponsors included in this article. I’d like to thank them for their time and for sharing their experience to help you make the most of your green nappies! We have Kyra from Bubbalooba, Katerina from Twinkle Lily, Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products, Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba,Yoland from Bumbino, Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies, Nat from Little Diamond Bums and Liz of Real Nappies NZ.

Let’s see what they have to say:

AIO’s – What are the Benefits of the All in One nappy?

Kyra from Bubbalooba:

AIO nappies are great for convenience – you don’t have to worry about putting in any inserts or anything.

Katerina from Twinkle Lily:

No need to provide an extra cover, comes as a complete system with absorbancy included.

Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products:

Convenient when out but I’m not a fan of PUL.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

1. convenience: wash, dry and wear, no need to stuff or snap in any inserts.

2. Easy to use like a disposable: little learning curve required by carers.

3. Easy transition for disposable users to cloth nappies.

Yoland from Bumbino:

I am not a fan of the AIOs that have lots of hidden sewn-in absorbent layers. I am way too curious about what gets lodged inside all those layers…. The AIOs that have the insert partly attached or detachable so that it washes thoroughly would be my preference if choosing an AIO. The benefit of these nappies is that they are quick and easy to assemble. They can be customised for absorbency by adding additional layers underneath the sewn or snapped-in inserts. I only have one of these nappies and I do have to add extra cloth underneath the insert to get the absorbency that we need. It doesn’t look as neat as a pocket nappy to my eye…but it works just as well.

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

Easy for people just starting out because you don’ have to reassemble after washing, can take longer to dry because they’re thicker though.

Amy and Nat from Little Diamond Bums:

They are the easiest nappy to use as they’re pretty much the same as a disposable. Their ease of use is great to encourage hubby, family members and childcare centres to use. One disadvantage is that they may take longer to dry but new designs are ruling out this issue.

Liz of Real Nappies NZ:

All in one nappies are seen are easy to use nappies and again are great when someone is looking after your baby. There is nothing to put in a pocket or fold as it is all built in. Downside is every time you change you bubs the whole thing needs to be washed.
