5 Reasons All-in-Two Cloth Diapers are Budget Friendly

cdai2categoryWe're continuing the Cloth Diapering on a Budget series today with a look at a cloth diapering system that is extremely budget friendly.  It's also a system that is very popular among cloth diapering parents that don't consider themselves on a strict budget.


The All-in-Two Cloth Diapering System is just like any other – you can make it relatively cheap or purchase diapers that are on the more expensive side.  Today, we're taking a look at why this system can be budget friendly AND I'm showing you a new diaper brand that we're sporting in our stash!

First, let's cover a myth – just because you need to purchase two parts to this system doesn't make it more expensive.  On the contrary, this system can be quite inexpensive because you can actually reuse your diaper covers.


Reuse covers

One of the reasons that this system is budget friendly is because you don't have to purchase as many covers as you do inserts to fill them.  Most PUL Diaper Covers can easily be wiped down from a wet insert and re-used again 2-3 times before needing to be washed.  Now, if you have a stinky or soiled cover, you'll want to go ahead and wash it, of course!

Covers are often One Size

Just like the Buttons Cloth Diaper System we were sent {free for review}, the Buttons Diaper Cover is a One Size cover!  This is a huge cost savings because there's no need to buy more than enough covers you'll need at one given time.


These covers have a snap-down rise with settings that will fit a baby from 9-35 pounds!

A couple of things that really stand out about the Buttons Diaper Cover to me are:

  • One row of snaps.  Snaps are my favorite thing in the world, so when there's a simple one row of them, I'm thankful!
  • Snap In Inserts.  There are actually snaps inside the cover {at the front and back} so your Buttons insert will lay in and snap – no twisting or moving with an active baby!
  • Elastic on the belly and Double gussets on the legs that keep EVERYTHING in.


Stuff with ANYTHING

Most AI2 systems come with specific inserts, but if you're really on a budget you can get away with using just about anything as a diaper insert.  We'll be discussing some ideas in a later post in this series.  For now, I'll show you Buttons Diapers Inserts which really are affordable options for cloth diapering on a budget.


Buttons diapers sells two types of inserts in two sizes – Daytime {in Small and Large} and Nighttime {in Small and Large}.  The reason for two sizes is because when you're using the cover at it's smallest setting, a large insert will not fit in comfortably – it will be a bit too big for your bitty newborn.  Once your baby grows, though, you can always use those small inserts as doublers in your cover – so no waste there!

The Daytime Inserts are 4layers of microfiber topped with a stay-dry fleece that can be put directly against baby's bottom.  On the contrary, the nighttime inserts are not topped with these stay dry fleece.  They are meant to be added below a daytime to give extra absorbency.

This combo of 10 layers of microfiber has allowed Moreaya to wake up dry every time we've used it!

Line dry quickly

Because there's really nothing to the covers, they line dry exceptionally fast.  I do dry my inserts in the dryer, but the microfiber dries very quickly as well.

Travel friendly

Lastly, although it mine not sound like a huge reason, but All-in-Twos are budget friendly because they are also travel friendly.  No need to buy disposables when you're traveling just because you think you can't take your cloth along.  AI2's travel light in the diaper bag {because you really only need to take 1 cover for every 3-4 inserts} and dry quickly when you're washing away from home!

I've tried {and reviewed} quite a few different All-in-Two Cloth Diapering systems and the Buttons Diaper system is one of my favorites.  I couldn't resist the cute gray cover, but all those other colors are gorgeous too, aren't they!?


With Buttons Cloth Diapers, you can cloth diaper your child on a budget of $156.00!  At only $3.50 per Daytime Insert, $5.00 per Nighttime Insert and $11.00 for a Diaper Cover – you really can't beat the quality and price of this cloth diapering system!
