AI2 - All-In-Two - AI2s are very similar to AIOs with the exception that the absorbent soaker material is not attached to the diaper
in any way. The soaker is usually a second, separate piece that must
be used in conjunction with the diaper. This will definitely aid in

Covers and Wraps
- Covers come in many styles and shapes, but their function is to
provide a waterproof outer layer for non-waterproof diapers (all,
except for AIOs). They are often fitted with elastic and fasten with
snaps or Velcro. Some covers pull-up, like underpants. Diaper covers
are usually made from polyester, PUL, waterproof nylon, fleece or

- Diaper Service Quality - Diaper services use only the highest quality
materials because their diapers must stand up to a lot of use and a lot
of laundering. DSQ is usually used in reference to high quality
prefold diapers. Most are made in India, China or Pakistan.
- Doublers are additional inserts (for pocket diapers) or swaths of
material that add to the absorbency of a diaper. Hemp absorbs 3x as
much as cotton and less bulky. We put a hemp doubler behind a cotton
micro-terry insert for naps and nighttime. You can also wrap a prefold
around the insert for increased absorbency.
- Fitted diapers closely resemble disposable diapers. They are
contoured and fitted with elastic around the legs and back. They
fasten with Velcro or snaps, and a waterproof cover must be worn over
- Liners are thin layers of cloth or paper that are placed inside the
diaper to aid in the cleaning of solid waste. Some are flushable.
CAUTION: We had new plumbing in our 130 year old house and a basement - all
water/waste is directed to a "poop-grinder-pump" and ejected out a 2"
pipe to the sewer line.
I WOULD NOT flush even biodegradable liners in
this plumbing system. They don't have time to biodegrade from flush to

- One Size diapers grow with your baby. Most will fit from birth to
potty training (7-35 lbs) - usually by adjusting the rise of the diaper
by snapping down the front.
- Pocket diapers are like AIO or AI2s. They have an outer layer of a
waterproof material and an inner layer of a stay-dry material, like
microfleece or suedecloth. They close with velcro or snaps. They have
a pocket opening that allows for the absorbent inserts/doublers to be
stuffed in the pocket during use and then removed for laundering. The
absorbent material for stuffing can be an insert, prefold, or doubler.
Pocket diapers are a popular choice among users because the amount of
stuffing can be customized to the baby. This image is a ONE SIZE
