I recently had the opportunity to review an "All-in-One" (AIO) cloth diaper from Diaper Rite (by Diaper Junction [aff id]). This diaper is entirely one-piece: simply wash, dry, and use again (no stuffing, no folding). AIOs are wonderful for using on newborn babies. Parents who want a no-fuss diapering system will also do well with this style of diaper.

Diaper Rite AIO features:
- One-size-fits-most (8-35lbs)
- Suedecloth lining provides a "stay-dry" feature, and draws moisture into three layers of microfiber
- Soaker-Stopper™ waterproof banding that prevents leaks for tummy sleepers
- 8-month-old baby boy
- Breastfed and starting solid foods
- 20lbs, 50% weight and height
- Crawling, sitting
We received the Dandelion (yellow) Diaper Rite AIO cloth diaper and the first diaper I received did have a defect with three of the rise snaps. I contacted Diaper Junction and, true to their history of great customer service, they promptly sent a replacement diaper and issued a return mailing label for the defective product. The second diaper was flawless and arrived within a matter of days.
My first impression of the Diaper Rite AIO was that it was very trim fitting and soft. The suedecloth inner lining is supple, and the waterproof outer layer is soft and flexible. I noticed there was some wrinkling on the outside of the diaper, and I decided to wash it before photographing it. This did remove some of the wrinkles, but the diaper shell is more prone to wrinkling because the fabric is so flexible and soft (which is good). The diaper has a trim fit that is perfect for small babies and mobile babies, and I was curious to see how the diaper functioned on my 8-month-old baby.

I was pleased to see that the Diaper Rite AIO offered a great, snug fit and was also absorbent. The diaper was wonderful at containing breastfeed poop and preventing leaks. I liked that the elastic in the diaper provided a snug, but not tight, fit, and that the diaper was very adjustable in the rise snaps. This is a very comfortably fitting diaper, and it is absorbent enough to give parents peace of mind. Since the Diaper Rite AIO only contains three layers of microfiber, some might question if the diaper sacrifices absorbency for a trim fit. The diaper was fairly saturated after two hours of use during heavy liquid consumption, but we did not encounter a need for additional absorbency. I will add a hemp soaker to increase the absorbency if I use the diaper overnight. The design of the diaper allows parents to tuck additional soakers under the suede/microfiber flap: a feature that is both functional and comfortable.
|Absorbent microfiber is hidden below soft suedecloth. This protects baby's skin from the drying effects of microfiber, and creates a "stay-dry" feeling as moisture passes through the suedecloth.|
The fabric used in the Diaper Rite AIO made it comfortable on baby's skin and fast-drying. The dry-time of the Diaper Rite AIO was comparable to that of my pocket-style diapers. I line dried the AIO overnight, and had a dry diaper that was ready to use in the morning. This is substantial difference from the dry-time I'm used to with other styles of AIOs. I also liked that the suede lining felt fairly dry to the touch after baby used the diaper. The moisture was pulled away from baby's skin and into the microfiber layer beneath the suede cloth. The fabric was also soft! I did notice some light staining on the suedecloth after it contained a particularly large poop, but it's a diaper: baby's comfort is my first priority.
Based on our experience with the Diaper Rite AIO, I'm excited to recommend this diaper. This AIO would be a great choice for those cloth diapering at daycare, those looking for an easy-to-use diapering system, and for anyone who loves a great modern diaper at a good price. The diaper is so easy to use, and we had no problems with absorbency or leaks.
