All cloth nappies are made up of two components.
- An absorbent part
- A waterproof or water resistant part
In the case of an All In One nappy both of those parts are permanently attached or sewn together. You put them on as one piece, wash them as one piece and dry them as one piece. You can see that in this picture of the absorbent and waterproof parts that they are sewn together. Some have absorbent parts that are removeable by snaps but even when removed there is still a complete nappy system remaining.
In some All In One nappies, like this one, the absorbent part is visible and lays on top, in others it sits inside under a lining. In most, they fold out to increase the drying speed. You will find All in One’s in both hook and loop and snap closure and in all sizes.
These nappies are most simple and easiest to use type of cloth nappy, popular with child care providers. Disadvantages include length of drying time, the precision and care needed when fitting and possibly less scope for customisation and boosting.
