Pocket diapers or All in Ones??

I saw a post that made me wonder...are pocket diapers less loved these days??? I know that they were the big diaper choice last year, but maybe not so much anymore. What do YOU love?

Terms...

AI2 - A diaper that the soaker lays inside of, or snaps into. Growbaby syle.
AIO - A diaper that is sewn together, with soaker and all...no removable soaker parts, except maybe a booster.
Pocket - A diaper that you stuff to wear, and pull out insert to wash
Cover - you can put onto of a fitted, or lay in a prefold, etc.


I think this covers the basics, but feel free to add in others if you like!

AIOs or AI2s. For whatever reason, I always had leak issues with pockets (I used quite a few different kinds, with different insert combos) but haven't had the same issues with AIOs and AI2s.

Re: Pocket diapers or All in Ones??

I like pockets for night, but usually an AIO or AI2 for other times.

Re: Pocket diapers or All in Ones??

For me it is a tie between pockets and AIO's

Re: Pocket diapers or All in Ones??

I love breathable fleece pockets, because my son's bottom feels a lot cooler than when he wears PUL pockets. Also, I like how soft the fleece feels. I wish I could find more types of inserts made from natural fibers, because I do not like MF inserts. However, I do like AIOs for under clothes when out and about. The AIOs I like have snap in soakers made with natural fibers.

Re: Pocket diapers or All in Ones??

I like to be able to reuse the "shell" whether it's a cover with a pf laid in or an AI2 with an insert snapped in.

MAN ALIVE I can't STAND to stuff diapers!

I said pockets and covers+prefolds. AIOs take too long to dry for us in Houston, though I do like the versatility and ease... I have one as our backup cloth in the car (+ 3 sposies in case it is a VERY bad day!).

Re: Pocket diapers or All in Ones??

I really like fitteds with wool and/or fleece clothing (shorties/skirties/longies)

I also like pockets (FBOS, BGOS, RaR, katydids) but lately I've been getting leaks and I can't figure out why. Sometimes the insert is barely wet, but around the legs I get leaks..wicking?? Other times her entire shorts (or whatever she's wearing) are just damp?? I'm so confused.

My favorite for ease and reliability are AI0's/AI2's but I much prefer AI2's on laundry day

I also really like PF's trifolded into covers too, just depends on what she's wearing. This is my favorite choice with dresses.
