An All-in-One nappy is exactly what it says – All-in-one. It is the cloth nappy that is most like a disposable. You put it on, take it off, wash it, dry it, put it on again. There is no snapping of inserts, no stuffing of pockets. It is the easiest nappy for Daycare Centres, Grandparents and often Dads!
These nappies have a waterproof outer layer and then all the absorbency is built in to the nappy. Occasionally they may have a flap or fold-out insert that is attached to the nappy, but not built in, to speed up the drying time.
It is generally not possible to customise the absorbency of an AIO nappy and therefore they are not always suitable for heavier wetters. However, more recently a number of AIO nappies also have pockets or are designed to allow for lay-in boosters to increase the absorbency.
AIO nappies come in a range of closure options (snaps and velcro/aplix) and different fabrics.
