Referring to a cloth diaper as an All In One diaper, or an AIO, means that everything you need for a single diaper change comes in one piece.
All cloth diaper systems are made of two parts: something waterproof to prevent leaks and something absorbent to hold in liquids. An AIO combines these two aspects in one single piece diaper.
Each AIO diaper is a single diaper change, meaning that with each change you will need an entirely new diaper. No part of the AIO is reusable once it has been soiled. The AIO is the closest in concept to a disposable diaper as you really want to get, so they are great for babysitters, grandparents, quick changes on the go and day cares.
The Natural All-In-One has 11 thirsty layers of natural fibers: 3 layers of GOTS-certified organic cotton in the body, and 2 soaker pads with 8 layers of hemp/organic cotton. This signature hemp/organic cotton blend has been a Thirsties staple in many other products and is truly what gives the NAIO its incredible absorbency. The outer layer is 100% waterproof TPU laminate and prevents leaks and blowouts.
The snaps provide adjustability to fit most babies from birth to potty training. Gentle elastic around the legs and waist provides protection against leaks.
Before Use: Thirsties Natural All In One needs to be washed and dried at least three times before use to rid the fibers of the natural oils. This is done separately from your other diapering products for the first 3 washes. Our hemp-cotton products will be fully primed and at their maximum absorbency after 8 wash cycles.
At every wash cycle:
-Prewash on warm
-Wash on hot
-Add another rinse on warm.
-You may hang prefolds to dry, or dry in the dryer. If the diapers are stiff after line drying, you can throw them in the dryer on medium heat with some wool dryer balls to soften them.
Use enough water to soak and cover the diapering items and allow them to agitate.
