All in Two Nappies: What Does This Mean?

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

All in Two Modern Nappies – the goal of this article is to clarify for you what an ‘All In Two’ nappy means – and to introduce you to some of the cloth nappy shops who offer these AI2 nappies…

Our Nappy Experts explain All-in-2 Nappies for you in simple ways…

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. These nappy retailers and nappy makers have been asked to describe the All in Two nappy for you in their own way; you’ll see quick, concise definitions as well as detailed explanations that reveal more about the composition of the nappy fabrics, materials and designs. Once you know, pop over and look at their All-in-two nappies with your enhanced understanding of the features and benefits of the AI2 nappy.

Laura of Cloth Nappy Co:

All in two nappies are great as they can be used in two different ways: an all in one nappy or you can remove the inserts provided and use the shell as a nappy cover.  This also makes drying easy as you can separate the inserts and the nappy shell.

Kelly from Pepper Place:

Similar to the All in One, but with two separate parts. Usually a waterproof outer shell, with or without absorbency, and another absorbent part that snaps in place.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

An outer waterproof shell sewn to an inner stay-dry layer, but with no pocket opening. instead the absorbent material is laid in or snapped into the inside of the nappy before use.

Now you know exactly what an all in Two 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,
