OH HEY. Welcome to day TWO of my cloth diapering on a budget series. If you’re just tuning in for the giveaway, WELCOME! This week is all about cloth diapering on a budget. I’m featuring several budget friendly diapers and companies this week and giving away several awesome diapers. So stick around! Let’s get to this week’s topic. The All-In-One.

All In Ones (referred to as AIOs in the cloth diapering world) are diapers that don’t require stuffing or folding. They’re as close to a disposable as you can get. Most people give these to day care workers or grandparents to use because they’re the least complicated diaper and the easiest to use. They tend to be pretty expensive, so it took me awhile to find one that was reasonably priced. But I did! Diaper Junction carries an AIO that is one sized (meaning it snaps down to fit babies from 8-35lbs), and is a STEAL at $11.95. You won’t find a new AIO for cheaper.

The Diaper Rite All in One’s features : 

  • Waterproof outer protects clothing (and mom!).
  • Soft suedecloth touches baby’s skin and provides a “stay-dry” feeling.
  • Tongue-style soaker is sewn down in the back to stay put.
  • Two layers of thirsty microfiber compose the soaker, and there is an additional layer built into the body of the diaper.
  • Soaker-Stopper™ prevents wicking at the waist.
  • Designed to fit most babies 8-35 lbs.
  • Great for grandparents and babysitters!

AIO budget friendly diaper

This is the perfect all-in-one for families on a budget. It’s easy to use, super absorbent, and doesn’t require a lot of prep work and fanfare. Most diapers need to be washed several times before using, but I was in a hurry one day and grabbed this after it had only been washed once and had absolutely no problems with leaking. At all. Emery was in the diaper for at least 5 hours. I was shocked. Now, there are some AIOs that are almost exactly like a disposable. Nothing to fold or adjust, just grab and go. With this one, you do have to fold it to fit whatever size you have it snapped to and you have to tuck it under the Soaker Stopper (the flap of waterproof fabric at the top of the diaper) to keep the liquid from leaking onto baby’s waist. It’s not that big of deal though. It’s takes about 5 seconds and then you just snap on the diaper and you’re done. I LOVE this thing. I’ve really had no problems using the diaper. It’s mine and Zach’s new go-to. I will say though, that it takes forever to line dry. But hey, what can you do? On top of the diaper being so fantastic, Diaper Junction offers a 6 month warranty on the diaper and a lifetime warranty on the snaps. For a diaper that’s less than $13, that’s a pretty stinking good deal.

    Great simple intro into one facet of cloth diapering. Thanks for the info! Seems doable now.

  2. Kishah says

    Thank you for this post! I’ve been looking for cheap and good AIOs but couldn’t find one for less than $15! I’m happy to have this link. And even if I don’t win, I will most likely get some. From 8-35 lbs! That’s awewome! How many would you recommend getting if one plans on using mainly prefolds?

    • says

      I guess it just depends on how often you think you’ll be using them. If you’re only going to use them every now and then, I’d say 4-6 AIOs would be good. I love this diaper for night time, so I plan on getting just a couple more. I wash every two days, so 4 AIOs is more than enough for me! If your baby is going to a babysitter for an entire day, figure in 4-7 diapers per day. Yay for pre-folds! I prefer prefolds & covers for the day time. So easy and inexpensive!

      • Kishah says

        Thank you so much for the reply! My mom will mostly be watching her for now and she doesn’t mind prefolds (she’s a 3 times cloth diaper veteran); so I will get 4-6 for now, as you suggested!! Thank you!!

    I like the parrot. My husband loves bright colors and it may be the only way I get him to use cloth diapers!!

  4. Reena says

    Thank you for the post. I would choose the “Turtle” print. My chipmunk might look like a sailing turtle or a hane with this lively color :)

    But it’s such an awesome discovery and thanks again fr enlightening us readers. I would never know this stuff is available at about a little more than $11. Even if I don’t win this will be worth buying one fr my diaper stash.

      Aww you’re so welcome!! I love helping people find affordable options. It’s definitely worth having a few of these on hand! Good luck!

  5. Melissa says

    Honestly, I wouldn’t have chosen this color had I not seen your baby wearing it. How cute is electric carrot!!!!

  6. Nikki says

    I wouldn’t care what color, I’d be so happy to win one. All the colors are great!

  7. says

    I’ve been thinking about trying the Diaper Rite AIO’s, seeing how I love the BumGenius Freetime diapers that we have but can’t afford them. I think that the Timberwolf is pretty.

  8. Tannis W says

    I like mai tai, but would probably go with a gender neutral color like timberwolf.

  9. nicole says

    I would choose the pacific color! hard choice between that and pacific.

  10. Jeannette says

    I would choose black! I am always thinking about buying a black diaper but haven’t yet. We have SO many shirts that match black!

  11. Nicole Bear says

    Just to let you know, the tweet is over 140 characters so we have to edit it to post.

  12. Jenny Knight says

    I would love to get the Pacific color. Thank you for all the info! I just started researching cloth diapers today and your series was incredibly helpful.
