Can you make it thru with just aio's?

I am new to cd'ing with a 7 wk old. She is outgrowing the NB diapers and I need to invest in bigger sizes. So far, I am definitely an aio mama - with a few pockets and ai2 for diversity. I plan on just buying a huge stash of aio, but is this naive? Just wondering if I will NEED anything other than aio's? Thanks!

I use AIO's during the day and fleece pockets at night stuffed with hemp as my normal AIO's aren't absorbent enough for nights.

We are an all AIO household. Night time is a BG Freetime with a hemp doubler.

With DS1 we used BGE exclusively and at night just added a doubler & bummis fleece liner.

Thank you - helpful feedback. Looks like I should check out hemp when she starts sleeping through the night.

Re: Can you make it thru with just aio's?

I had to simplify when DD was born, so we became an AIO family. I sposie the 2 y/o at night because only an elaborate combinations of fitteds/doublers/liner/cover worked for him and I was over it. Except for my BG's, all of mine are pocket style AIO's so I can add a doubler at naptime or if we will be out and about for more than an hour or two (just in case!). We have a mix of different AIO's- TB's, Simplex, BGE, BGFT. My preference seems to change daily, so I wouldn't be happy with a huge stash of just one particular AIO though.

Becoming AIO family here with LO. DS we have several kinds: AI2, pockets, prefolds/covers. Caught the AIO bug when DH expressed his preference for AIO. I'm keeping the pockets and flats for now. Maybe destashing soon since we sposie DS. Haven't tried the bamboo flats on him yet but we shall see....if it works, we shall be back in cloth!!
