Black with Yellow and Red Stars AI2 Cloth Diaper


Black with Yellow & Red Stars AI2 with Insert ($9.95ARV) fits from approximately 8 to 35lbs. An All-In-Two (AI2) cloth diapering system is similar to that of an All-In-One (AIO). It has a simple step of just snapping the one insert into the inside of the shell, then you just put the diaper on your baby. So simple! This AI2 has a Charcoal Bamboo insert as well as a soft charcoal bamboo inner which wicks moisture away from your baby's skin to keep his/her bottom dry and comfortable. The outer layer of the shell is waterproof, so no cover is needed, making this diapering system even easier for dads and grandparents to use. Also with an AI2 system, you can reuse the shell if it is not wet/soiled. Just unsnap the soiled insert and snap in a new one. So you could essentially buy about 6 shells and a dozen inserts and be set for at least one day of cloth diapering.

The inserts is made of 5 layers - 2 outer layers are charcoal bamboo to protect baby's skin and between those two layers are 3 layers of microfiber. Charcoal bamboo inserts are very absorbent and quick absorbing, they have a stay-dry feel, are stain resistant and they don't bunch up. They are also antibacterial and anti-fungal which help to reduce diaper rashes.

Washing an AI2 is rather quick and easy. Since the shell is just PUL and charcoal bamboo it drys quickly and the insert does as well as your can unsnap it from the shell. I have wool dryer balls (6 from BecksWares) in my dryer, but I bet even with out those the shell and insert of this diaper would be dry in ONE LOW heat cycle! With my AIO's I have to run them on low and after the first cycle I have to go and flip them wrong side out so that the insert will finally dry. I'm so thankful for the AI2 and the simple step to decrease drying time. 

This is a OS - one size cloth diaper that fits from approximately 8lbs to 35lbs, meaning that it has rise snaps, which you can use to adjust the size of the diaper shell from X-Small, Small, Medium or Large. The diaper also have cross over snaps so that you can cross the wings over each other for a really small/young baby. It also provides a nice snug fit in the waist and legs to help keep those messy diapers contained and avoid leaks. These AI2's also have hip snaps which prevent wing drooping, which is really annoying. 

 This AI2 fits Ezio perfectly! We can snap down the rise by one setting and the tabs even cross over. Ezio is 2 years old and 30 pounds. He has some fairly chunky thighs and his Buddha belly is actually slimming down more as he's loosing what I call the "winter coat" or their winter fat storage. We can also use this diaper on Ezio with the rise fully open and the wings not crossed over, we get a good fit both ways. No red marks from the leg elastic or any irritation, which is really nice as Ezio has pretty sensitive skin. This AI2 is very nice and trim while still being absorbent! He can actually wear the appropriate sized jeans with this cloth diaper on, isn't this what all of us cloth diapering mommas want?


Sorry, he's my blur. He rarely holds nice and still for more for the point two seconds it takes to take the pictures. But these were the best that I was able to get and I think you can see how well this diaper fits and how trim it is, pretty nicely in these photos.
