The folding over of the soaker makes it easy to get the coverage you want for you baby just right.

I'm not sure if the soakers changed or not, but the Softbums soakers I have do not have 2 different layers attached together, it is just one sewn together.

Thanks for adding the video! I understand the all in 2 concept better now... the soft bums diapers look really easy to use! I wish she had shown to to shorten the leg casings and make the diaper fit a newborn, and then undo them so it fit an older child! But, hopefully I'll win this friday, and then I'll be able to find out first hand!

Thank you Kelly!!!

Only 2 snaps to put the insert in...that's awesome!!! I want to try this diaper out more than ever now. Looks faster and easier than stuffing pockets.

I think Kelly deserves an extra comment in the contest for finding this!

Thank you for posting this. I was very curious as to how these diapers worked.

Cecile said...

I really like the concept, it's so easy!

I'm always amazed at how someone really took the time to "think outside the box" when it comes to cloth diapers... it's refreshing to find something new AND different!

Looking forward to testing it out!

The more I think about this video, I realized it must be an older style diaper made by Soft Bums. For one it has a snap closure and now the new one has an aplix closure. But all in all, I think it gives us a good idea how the All in Two diaper works. Personally, I would love to see the new version in a snap closure too :)

Katrina said...

That looks pretty easy. I like the idea of the two layer insert to help make laundry drying quicker. I would love to try this diaper on my little one sometime...if I can talk my husband into letting my buy yet another diaper...Seems like I'm ordering stuff every few weeks....

Meghan said...

Thank you for adding this video. I'm new to cloth diapering and I haven't been sure what an all in 2 was until now. Very informative. Was that the creater of Soft Bums in the video?

Maggie said...

Great video! That was really helpful. I love the separate layers that dry faster in the dryer.

Umm Sayf said...

Wow! Thanks so much for adding this video. I really get it - and LOVE this idea. It seems like the perfect diaper system - ease of pockets, with less pockets to buy! Yippie!

Liz said...

This video was so informative and I love the seperate layers of the insert. As a PP mentioned, I wonder if the new soft bums will come out with a snap version? It is getting REALLY hard to resist this diaper :)

Thanks for putting this video on here!

Kelly said...

Oh this is so helpful! I love videos. I always find my way of doing things, but I love to see what is the INTENDED way of doing things.

That was a good video. I hope to find one on the leg sizes....my little peanut lacks some of the typical baby chub and it would be good to see how the leg sizing works.

Thanks for the great video. I really liked the fact that you can use the larger soakers even for smaller babies just by folding it down, so then you don't need to purchase different sizes. Plus I like that you can reuse the diaper if it's not dirty.

Katie said...

Thanks for the video - it helps to actually see how it works - looks great! I'd love to win!!

Erika said...

Thankyou for adding the video. I'm definitely a "visual learner" and this was a big help. What a neat concept!

The Softbums video does show how to use an All-in-2 diaper, but that is our old Softbums style, without the cool Perfect Fit one-size sizing system.
Also our Inserts are much different now, and much easier to use, and fit tiny to big babies a lot better.
This diaper is still being sold, but only as our training pants now in pink or blue. They fit sooooo trim, ask Kelly if you'd like to see them in her store.
I'll try to get a new video up of our current Softbums Style.
These are less expensive than say, something like a one-size pocket like BG's because #1 they fit a newborn, and #2 you can get more Snap-in Inserts per cover. We recommend about 3 Inserts per cover.
If you got a package of 18 Inserts and 6 covers at about $320, that's a lot more economical than 18 separate pocket diapers at $20 and up.
That's not much less than 18 BG's, but BG's don't actually fit a newborn right from them start unless you have a 10 lb baby, so you'd be spending money buying another newborn system, or disposables to cover you for the first few weeks or months.
These diapers actually get soooo tiny, that they fit right from the start!
If you estimate 3 Inserts to 1 cover, that's about $18 per change. About the same as a BG, but much more adjustability!
And I've had customers reuse the cover up to 6 times!
We also are coming out with a more economical Insert that is about $5 a piece. If you'd like to see Kelly carry that one, email her!
