What is an AI2 Diaper
The baby diaper has come a long way since moms of yore used leaves, skins of animals or anything they could gather from their surroundings to wrap their children’s bottoms. Before the All-in-Two diaper or the AI2 diaper became the rage today, milkweed leaves, rabbit and seal skins were used as diapers. According to early records, ancient mothers draped their yet to be toilet trained children in animal skins and stuffed moss or grass inside the diapers. In the 1600s, people made use of linen and cotton cloth as diapers.
Up until the early 1900s, children who have yet to learn to relieve themselves properly were draped in cloth diapers that were fastened by safety pins. The modern disposable diaper was first introduced in 1942. Since then disposable diapers have been produced using different materials like plastic and rubber. But whatever their make, they all shared the same purpose of helping moms all over the world deal with dirty bums. Cloth diapers, however, never really went out of style, so to say. Recently, there has been a resurrection in cloth diaper use and a boom in hybrid diaper popularity. The AI2 diaper is one of those hybrids that is now in the forefront of the diaper industry.
The AI2 diaper basically has two components. The outer layer of the AI2 diaper is made of waterproof material while the inner layer is an absorbent cloth pad that is placed exactly against the skin of the baby’s bottom. When wet or soiled, the insert is simply removed or detached and disposed of. It is then replaced with a new pad. The waterproof part of an AI2 diaper can be washed, dried, and reused every time it gets dirty. Aside from holding the absorbent insert in place, the durable outer part also acts as a covering for flats, pre-fold and fitted diapers.
The AI2 diaper is one of the more mommy-friendly baby diapers in the market. It is popular among parents because they are easy to use and comes in a number of cute designs. The fact that the outer waterproof part can be reused several times also makes the AI2 diaper earth-friendly.
