I am so excited that we have enough responses to do a detailed statistical review of the Ones & Twos Cloth Diaper. Below I will show you the features of the diaper and will tell you what survey respondents had to say about it when they filled out our All in One Cloth Diaper Survey. I’m also going to add in my own comments here and there, as I have tried the diaper.
This is an all in one diaper, which means that you don’t need to stuff it or anything, you can just put it on the baby and you’re done.
I do love diapers that are like this, but I found that I actually had to stuff this diaper or lay an insert on top because it wasn’t absorbent enough as is.
The part of the diaper touching the baby is made out of a stay dry suedecloth.
This was SO soft. I also liked that there was a stay dry topping on the booster that came with it as well. I love to use this stay dry booster on top of a prefold when I use a prefold + cover.
The diaper has a pocket opening, so you have an option to add some additional absorbency.
One heads up–the diaper is fairly narrow, which is something I love because it makes the diaper so trim, but it also means that you can’t stuff it too well with larger inserts.
The insert that is sewn into the diaper is made of microfiber.
I was so bummed that this wasn’t absorbent enough. I tried everything. I stuffed the booster inside. I laid it on top. I stuffed the diaper with hemp….no matter what, I had issues. This was absorbent enough for one light accident, so it worked around the house, but I couldn’t take it out and about.
Hook and Loop Closure
The diaper only comes with hook and loop closures, with crossover tabs and laundry tabs.
This worked great. Some may want snap closures (which they don’t come with), but as a hook and loop lover, I didn’t mind. I liked that the crossover tabs allowed me to get a tight fit across my skinny daughter’s stomach. The laundry tabs folded the hook and loop down, so that it didn’t snag on other diapers in the wish.
The diaper is a one size diaper and you adjust the sizing using the four-row snap down rise in the front.
These diapers get really small, so I wonder how this works on smaller babies. I had it on the largest setting for both of my kids (who are in the 25-pound range) and it was great. I don’t know that it would work if they were any taller.
We received 23 survey responses from Ones & Twos users on our All in One Survey.
The diaper performed very well in trimness. The major factor that impacted this diaper’s scores (negatively) was the low absorbency.
Easy to Use
Not absorbent enough
Not enough colors/prints
Comments fromSurvey Respondents
Below we have included comments from survey respondents. While we are open to posting criticisms of products in our reviews, we remove any comments that we feel are more hurtful than critical.
“Easy to use. Can be used by babysitter or daycare.”
“Many people get leaks with this diaper. For a while that never happened with my son, then I began to get leaks once in a while. The diaper can hold a lot of pee but it seems to soak only the front part of the insert, it doesn’t keep soaking all the way to the back (If that makes sense). I think it leaks with stomach sleepers during naps. I still like them for daycare though. The aplix is awesome and they are very very easy to put on. The leaks are pretty minor for me, they aren’t what I reach for to go run errands, but I will keep sending them to daycare.”
“The aplix is very sticky and hard to get off the laundry straps one-handed. But that also means baby can’t get it unstuck either.”
“We could NEVER get them to work and we’ve given up and are trying to sell them. They seem really well-made, but when they keep failing when none of our others do, it’s clearly the diaper, not the user or the wash routine, etc.”
“I absolutely loved the way this diaper fit! It was probably one of the best fitting diapers I’ve tried, to date. I also love how easy it is – it’s truly an AIO – no insert necessary. However, it leaked and leaked and leaked. I would routinely check after about an hour to an hour and a half, and there was always leaking, mostly around the legs. It worked better with the insert/booster, but then it was quite bulky. I wanted to love these diapers so much, but just couldn’t. ”
“My husband loved this AIO. Some of the best Aplix and laundry tabs I’ve seen.”
“This diaper is cut too small–like an itti bitti diaper and not a great fit on my LO. The rise and overall cut is not good for chunkier and tall kids. It takes forever to dry in the dryer. I did like how it came with an extra stay dry booster.”
“I emailed the company [because] we had so many problems with this diaper leaking and they said it is not intended for heavy wetters, even with the included doubler.”
“This diaper is a great fit for our tall skinny baby, however it takes at least 3 times longer to line dry then my other pocket style diapers.”
“Using this on my skinny baby was a nightmare. No matter what there was always gaps at the legs, it never fit her right. It also was extremely bulky. Due to the gap at the legs she leaked every single time. The hook and loop was also way too easy to undo. I am thinking if my baby was a [bit] chunkier in the legs I could have gotten some use out of it.”
“The fabric/inner was great for me – son reacted to suedecloth of BG so I was searching for something else. The APLIX on this diaper is AMAZING! Like no other brand I’ve tried. Better than the touchtape of Blueberry or the large tabs of TotsBots. Always sticks, and for as long as I owned it didn’t wear at all. Very impressed. Trim between the legs, similar to GroVia, which is important to me for younger babes – I want an AIO that’s trim between the legs. Not as high of a rise as other OS diapers – not sure it’d last up to potty training on a tall kid (as my older son is 35 lbs 36 in), it fit him but I want a higher rise for boys.”
“I don’t think the diaper was very absorbent as is. I always add the extra soaker during the daytime, and my daughter isn’t a very heavy wetter. This kind of defeats the purpose of an AIO. Also, it only comes in H&L, and I am a snaps person. The H&L does seem very strong, though. I like how the leg elastic is very strong, it comes with four rise settings, and is a trim fitting diaper.”
“We used this diaper on our LO from about 2 months until around 6 months. I wasn’t a huge fan of it for a variety of reasons, but the main one is that the diaper is cut too small to be considered a “One Size” diaper. Our little girl has chunky thighs and despite the waist being adequate, this particular diaper’s elastics were way, way too tight. I think this diaper would be a good diaper for a small baby with chicken legs or maybe even a heavy wetting newborn, but I would definitely not go out of my way to recommend it to anyone.”
