Question Tell me why you like AIOs or AI2s please

I'm still trying to decide what the pros and cons of each are.

AIOs are almost like disposable diapers - they are one piece and easy to grab and slip on .Ai2s are covers with either snap in or other types of soakers. I like them both equally, but sometimes side towards the AI2s

I like that AI2s dry fast. I like that AIOs are the easiest because they are just one piece like sposies.

Ultimately I prefer a faster dry time.

The BG AIOs don't take long to dry, though, so I love those. Otherwise, I prefer AIOs with quickdry soakers.

i like the ease of AIO's and no need for more pieces.
i like that AI2's can also be used as a cover over prefolds or fitteds. i like both equally tho my stash is completely AIO's that i've made.

Definitely the ease of AIOs ... building up a small stash for when DD goes into daycare and for church daycare --- I figure there'll be less opposition if it looks and acts just like a 'sposie. I'm leaning toward making them our diaper bag dipes as well.

Re: Tell me why you like AIOs or AI2s please

um..hard one!
I like BG AIO b/c is dries fairly quick. Most of the time I don't like *true* AIO's because I can never tell if the bottom layer of the soaker is clean! I freak about that.
That's why I LOVE SB AIO's. There is still the little pocket that I can see that the dipe is clean, dry and smells fresh!

AI2's are nice b/c washing is more effiecent and they dry a bit faster! (generally). I just hate spare parts to dipes!

I use all AI2s...they're daddy friendly, and even sitters can figure them out. I have them all made up in the drawer so kits no different than a sposie, kwim?

They dry quickly because they seperate. Sometimes I throw the shell portion into the dryer with a half a dryer sheet (I only use a half with anything).

For us its what works. I say this time and again but a two layer windpro fleece AI2 is what saved my sanity when ds was such a heavy wetter when he was smaller.

I love ai2s! They are trim and I can wash them seperately from the covers. I can always buy new snap ins and they dry super quick.

Re: Tell me why you like AIOs or AI2s please

when ds was about 5-8mos i LOVED the ai2s, right now i'm lovin' rumpsters & the bg aios

quick dry is a plus in the aio category since they do take some time to dry. but like pp the bgs are pretty quick drying. i've got a sb on the way so we'll see how that goes. and the rumpsters have open flaps, so it's a true aio, but its also quick drying.
