View Full Version : need help with AIOs

OK, please bear with me cause I appear to be a dummy!!

I ordered an AIO pocket style and I am a little disappointed. All it consists of is the outer shell and the lining that forms the pocket. Am I a total idiot here? I thought that it would come with some "guts" to absorb something. I know that you can buy inserts but for 12 or 13 dollars, I expected it to come with something in it. As it is, it is basically just a cover. Am I just way out in left field or what?

Which diaper is it?

Unfortunately most pocket dipes come without an insert...fuzzi bunz etc. do need an insert. You can use anything from a CPF to a Joey Bunz insert. There are some out there that do come with the insert, but its just really a hit or miss thing...its more common to find a WAHM style with the insert.
That said, a pocket is like a cover with trimness. The pocket is there to insert the soaker which makes a more trim diaper, (Than an AIO with even a lay in soaker IMHO) depending on what you insert into it. Like a Fuzzi Bunz with a joey bunz hemp insert is about the trimmest diaper around, and for this they make you pay $$. But a joey bunz should run about $5-$6 per insert, and a CPF $2. I guess I'm trying to say, in all it comes out close to fitted and covers cost wise, but its a little more because of the trimness involved.

I hope I helped, but I made have made it even more confusing, sorry!

I really don't want to say here, cause I don't want to slam someone unintentionally, KWIM? Email me at [email protected] and I will be happy to tell you. :)

Don't worry about that! I've never heard of a pocket diaper coming with it's own insert! They're all like that!
