What are the best fitted or AOI for the best price?

[deleted account] ( 19 moms have responded )

I'm switching from disposable to cloth ( I was using disposable while living at my parents house while my husband was in Iraq) now that I'm back in my own home. I currently only have 2 prefolds and one cover, so I can only cloth diaper 2 times a day. I like the prefolds and covers, but I know they will be difficult for my hubby to use, so I'd like to try some AIOs or fitted with a cover. Any suggestions??? I tried the kissaluvs fitted diaper before, but they were WAY too bulky on my little guy.

We love the new Dream-eze aio's. As soon as my hubby saw these he was like " we are only using these" everything is built in and they have the pul on the outside. They are great for day and night also if you buy 6-12 dipes at a time it is cheaper. we get them at nautal baby website. Also we trade on Diaper swappers. I hope that helps.

Quoting Michele:

Thristy's fitteds are nicely priced I did however have to add mor absorbancy to mine. If you can sew go to diaperkit.com she has an unbleached flannel fitted and an AIO that is really good, they are super easy to sew up. If you din't sew, I do.



I just purchased 5 diaper kits from diaperkit.com and I thought they were super easy to sew! Cute diapers, I dont know how well they work as my newest hasnt yet arrived but I cant wait to try them out. I would say even a beggining sewer can whip these up in no time. Everything is cut out and ready to go right out of the package....

I love nanas bottoms AIO's. Check out her hyena cart - http://hyenacart.com/nanasbottoms/. They are truly absorbent and economical. I have just purchased six more customs to go into my stash. Love these tons better than the GADs, BumGenius, and even Fuzzy Buns that I have.

I am using bumgenius AIO one size pocket diapers and I love them. Granted he is a newborn still and not too many messes, but i love it much better than the folded cloth I used with my first child. You can use any insert you want to make the more aborbant, but I have not had a leak yet. I am going to buy more today. I like the Bumgenius too, because they have the velcro not the snaps, for a quick diaper change.

I really like dry bees AIO but My husband likes the Bum Genuis--(I  have the the one size pocket diaper--they may have an AIO but not sure)--they seem  to be the easiest for him to use of all my brands --and they seem less bulky than some of my other brands :)

Yep, he is a super soaker!!! LOL!!! Especially at night!!!!! I will look into trying pocket diapers too. He's also a very big boy (26lbs at 10 months) so I need to find one that will cover his whole bum and not have leaks.

Fitteds r great if your babe is not a super soaker. Aio's take WAAAY to long to dry. I prefer pockets. You can adjust the absorbancy and if you stuff them b4 u but them away they go on just liek a sposie. Pockets r very easy to make as well

i love the drybees AIO hybrids.  i was using imse vimse for a long time, but switched to drybees as they fit well and are easy for my DH to use.

You could try the Drybees AIO hybrid. It is a nice diaper because by itself it works great as an AIO but it also has a pocket where you can add extra absorbecy stuffers, so it acts like a pocket. They are only 16.95 each too---so that is a great price. Actually, they are on sale for 16.45 each!

I like the kushies AIOs. They are relatively cheap compared to other brands and if you put another insert under the built in one they absorb much more. I had my parents but some for my daughter for Christmas ( my hubby doesn't do well with the prefolds either). the cheapest place I found them was walmart.com. Good luck, there are so many options and it may seem like everybody has a different favorite.

Bumkins ROCK!  They are soooo easy to use, very cute patterns and easy to add doublers. Just takes a bit to dry.

I really like the utility diaper I make- organic bamboo, one size- can be used as a swimmer and trainer, and comes w/all the soakers you'll ever need for max absorbency- which means you won't be making any additional soaker purchases in the future (unless you really want to).

In my experience, all cloth diapers are bulky, and I've tried everything. But if you're looking for saving money in the long one, go w/a good one size diaper- then you don't have to get 2 or 3 sizes plus swimmers and trainers...
