All Things Diapers (ATD) kindly sent me two AI2 diapers with three inserts for review and I had a positive experience with them. The solid diaper was a bright red color and the second diaper had an adorable animal print. The cover is also available in different colors on their website. When received the diapers I immediately noticed that, unlike other brands, the ATD AI2 cover has a double PUL layer to help prevent leaks.
ATD AI2 diapers offer an adjustable one size rise system to easily accommodate babies ranging from 8 to 35 pounds. The cover's overlapping and adjustable waist snaps allow a customized fit and the hip snaps to ensure a secure fit around the legs.
What I really liked about this diaper was that the back of the diaper had elastic and allowed me to stretch the wings for a perfect fit each time. The ATD AI2 cover also features double leg gussets that provide a great fit and help prevent leaks.
AI2 cloth diapers have a waterproof outer shell, usually PUL, and a detachable insert that either snap or can be tucked in the cover. Because you swap the insert and reuse the cover during most diaper changes, this cloth diaper system tends to be more economical than All-in-One or Pocket diapers.
Another benefit is that there's no stuffing involved, you just place the insert into the cover behind the microfleece flaps and put the diaper on the baby. These flaps not only keep the insert in place, but also help keep baby dry around the stomach and back.

All Things Diapers offers three different inserts for their AI2 diaper system: a bamboo/cotton insert that is PUL backed, a bamboo/charcoal insert, and a bamboo/charcoal insert that is PUL backed. The PUL-backed inserts help keep the cover dry allowing you to reuse the cover between changes. The bamboo charcoal fleece excels at drawing moisture away and keeping baby's skin dry. All three insert styles have a unique gusset design that helps prevent leaks. Just like the double gussets on the cover, these gussets help the insert contour for a great fit.
My 18 pound, 8-month old baby wore this diaper in the middle rise and we had no problems with the fit. I used individual inserts during the day on my active baby and experienced no leaks. I used both the bamboo/charcoal insert and the bamboo/cotton with PUL backing insert at night when we needed more absorbency. I adjusted the rise snaps and easily achieved a great fit around my baby's legs. The best part was discovering my baby was dry the next morning and she was wearing the same diaper all night long.
Overall, the ATD AI2 diaper system had a great performance at our house and I'm happy to recommend it to our readers.
