I've learned through trial and error that my favorite diapering system is fitted diapers with covers. However, this system can be a little complicated for people who don't diaper day in and day out. Covers that snap means you have to somehow get two pieces that snap attached on a wiggly, roll-y baby. To make diaper changes more simple, I searched for the perfect "daddy stash" diaper. It needed to be simple to use but still effective.
I tried various types of AIO (all-in-one) diapers with minimal success. The idea of an AIO is that the cover and absorbent material are one piece, but by nature, AIOs tend to leak and take a long time to dry while cleaning. I came across a store on Hyena Cart called Nana's Bottoms. This WAHM business offers different types of diapering systems. I chose the AIOs with PUL outer and bamboo inner. I paid a little extra for the bamboo but it was totally worth it. I also chose touch tape, a kind of hook & loop (H&L) closure.
At first, I found that the diaper wicked through the stitching for the H&L. I was disappointed but kept them anyway since the wicking wasn't enough to wet her clothes. I'm glad I stuck it out! After several months of light usage, the diapers finally were prepped to their full absorbency potential. Now my heavy wetting daughter can wear one of them for 3-4 hours without any leaking at all. Yes, they do take a long time to dry while cleaning, sometimes up to 2 hours in the dryer, but it's worth it for the convenience of a diaper that is so easy to use. They're my husband's favorite out of our stash. They're my choice when we're going in the car and I reach for one when I need a clean diaper in my diaper bag.
