The economical way: Flips with either prefolds, flats or organic flip inserts.

The non-economical way: OS Simplex or BGE. Snaps only though for both of these.

Two in diapers, how old are they? If not newborns I think you're okay with about 30.

The thing is, most OS won't fit until about 10 lbs, except Sofbums (AI2) but the insert choices are either microfiber or bamboo.

I like the bumgenius Elemental. I have a 2 1/2 month old and it fits him well and we don't have many leaks with it (I have leaks with almost every diaper I've tried, but the elemental is pretty reliable!

You could also try the Thirsties hemp prefolds. I've used one (pad folded) inside a Flip cover and it's very absorbent. It fits my 2 1/2 year old nicely, although this combination is a tad bulky. I use it for night time, naps, or long outings. Have you tried the Cloth Diapr Finder over at Dirty Diaper Laundry? You can enter your requirements and it will give you a list of diapers that fit what you're looking for!

I also thought of GroVia. Their AIO is one-size and organic cotton, and their AI2 is one-size and you can get organic cotton soakers. These might be good options for you! OsoCozy sells a cotton birdseye AIO that is only like $15 but it's a two size system, not one-size. Good Luck!

SoftBums with flats or prefolds.

You could also consider doing a newborn rental (I loved ours, through Kissed by the Moon). That way, you wouldn't be struggling to find a OS option that would also fit a newborn. That being said, one of our favorite OS AIOs is the Swaddlebees Simplex OS. It's natural fibers, with a stay-dry option. They started fitting my LO at about 1 month/10 lbs.
