AIO recommendations for picky mama

With all the diapers we've tried, I've gotten ridiculously picky...

I'm looking for something very specific in an AIO and I want to see if there's something out there I'm missing. We need a TRUE AIO (no snaps, no flaps) with APLIX closure and suedecloth or microfleece inner that doesn't take forever to dry (I have a brand new, really good dryer so anything reasonably trim usually dries in one cycle).

The new aplix Magic-alls don't fit well because the cut is too generous for our skinny ds, although they do dry in one cycle. We need TRIM. The Swaddlebees aplix AIO fits great, but takes about a century to dry. Please let me know what else I'm missing. Oh yeah, and they can't cost a fortune either (so that rules out Very Baby w/these options, although I'm a fan of the fit).

Thanks for your suggestions!

Try Teresa's a blessedbottomz.com. She has a quick dry soaker, fleece topped, with aplix. I love mine.

Good luck!

AngelDry may be what you're looking for. They have a microterry internal soaker (so a true AIO) so they dry fast (I'm pretty sure that's what the magicalls are). She offers suedecloth inners and touchtape closures but I'm sure she could do Aplix for you. Touchtape is a stronger velcro and holds up better than aplix IMO. HTH!

Re: AIO recommendations for picky mama

Thanks for the recommendation, I just ordered an AngelDry! Also ordered a Rousers Trousers true AIO. Hopefully one of these will do the trick, but if anybody has other suggestions, LMK.

HAVE you turned the SB AIO inside for faster drying?

Re: AIO recommendations for picky mama

I know the trick of turning the SB inside out, but having to do so defeats the purpose of a true AIO IMHO, so I just let them dry longer than everything else, which isn't a big deal, it's just not ideal.

I have some BumGenius! OS dipes and they do not last. They hold stains bad and the materials are of terrible quality and are fading and falling apart after only a couple of months of use (and many other reviewers on the Pin are saying the same). I have no idea how they would last from birth to potty training. So I probably won't bother with their AIO unless they change the materials. Too bad b/c the design of BGs is otherwise pretty cool.

Re: AIO recommendations for picky mama

It's hard to find a "true" AIO anymore. They take so long to dry, so most people make and prefer them with snap ins. Very Baby Hybrids are true AIO's but I haven't seen any with aplix, only snaps. Why do you prefer them over
AI2's? Just curious.

Daisy Doodles are great AI2's with aplix. Easy and trim

Good Luck in your search!

Re: AIO recommendations for picky mama

i was curious why you prefered them so much over an ai2 also...imo an ai2 DOES dry faster, and i just feel like they get cleaner. probably not true but i feel like they do lol.

qleros has really nice ai2's, VERY trim.
