Whats your favorite AIO??

So DS hasn't outgrown his BG smalls, but he has out-wet them! :eek: Since the day he was born I have been challenged with diapers being absorbent enough for him. Such a heavy wetter!! But he officially soaks through his small BGs now - even if I stuff them with extra absorbency. They are our go-to diapers for convenience and ease. I do have 2 mediums but it appears that since I ordered them, they are no longer making the sized diapers anymore?? At least I can't find ANY online to purchase.

So... What is your favorite AIO??? I like them to not be very expensive, and they need to be absorbent!! I'm looking to buy size mediums. Help!!

The only AIO we've got is a stuffable Bum Cheeks. You can find them on the deal a day sites every now and then, which is how I got one. I really love pockets because I can change the absorbancy a lot easier and has faster drying time than AIOs. Once stuffed with inserts, they're just like an AIO which is what DH likes. lol.

all we use now are bum genius elementals (aka organic). you might not want those since they are one-size. but i find them to be really absorbent. DS used to have problems with leaks when i was using fuzzi bunz, even if i double-stuffed in the wet zone, and i just hated stuffing and unstuffing pockets, so we made the switch.

we have also used swaddlebees side-snapping all-in-ones, which do come in S, M, L. i LOVED them! i sold mine when DS grew out of his mediums, but he was in that size for a really really long time (from about 13-21 pounds). they always seemed really absorbent and had a nice trim fit. they had a pocket for stuffing extra absorbency, but we never needed to stuff them...they were plenty absorbent with just the sewn-in soaker. and SO soft on the inside because of velour lining. their side-snapping all-in-one is a different design now (called "simplex") and i haven't tried it, so can't say for sure how great it is, but it sure does come in some cute prints! and it's $6 cheaper per diaper than the BG organics.

Thanks ladies!!

I do have quite a few pockets. Those have done well at nighttime (especially my FBs and BGs) but I still like to have a few AIOs on hand. I've heard ppl talk about the drying issue by I haven't ever noticed that my AIOs take longer than any of the others to dry? Hmmm... Guess I'm just lucky.

I just ordered one of those swaddlebees simplex diapers. Also ordered a bottombumpers and I'll get a kawaii nighttime diaper free. I can't wait for them to come in so I can try a bunch of new dipes! Smile
