is there a AI1 diaper comparable to a pocket diaper?

I have never given all in ones a shot, and kinda skipped over even researching the brands.

Could be nice to have one or two around for pure simplicity. My little one is a super soaker and I do love how pocket diapers work for him (charlie banana and hiney liney are awesome).

I would love your opinion on a good AI1 diaper!

Do some perform just as good as pockets?

Thanks!

BG Elementals and Swaddlebees Simplex are quite absorbent for AIO's.

Tots bots is a combo AIO with a pocket opening. Nice because you can add inserts if you want or just go with the minky "tongue" soaker.

BG Elementals (organic cotton) and Freetimes (stay dry micro) work awesome for me. I've had Swaddlebees too that worked great as well. They're birdseye cotton, which I didn't like as much though, a bit stiff.

Re: is there a AI1 diaper comparable to a pocket diaper?

I think AIOs are a pain.. they take forever to dry and half the time dont absorb enough.. Thats why I love AI2 diapers bc its the best of both worlds, you get an optional pocket for stuffing overnights or naps if a HW or for simplicity for grandma/ dad or sitter.. and during the day you can just snap in a soaker and change it out as needed keeping the cover as long as its clean. IME DH finds the AI2 snaping in soaker easier bc then you just change the soaker as needed vs trying to figure out if the pocket soaker is wet or not.. lol

I usually prefer AI2s, but I love thr Swaddlebees Simplex OS AIO. It dries as fast as my prefolds! I have half a dozen and use them for nights for my almost 12 week old. When she gets older I can stuff extra in the pocket if she needs more absorbency. For now they last 12 hours, no problem.
