Grovia AIO and why every working mom needs one
Most cloth diapering mommies opt for pocket diapers for several reasons. One of the most popular is that you can adjust the absorbency easily. On the other hand, we've all had to pull out the insert of more than one brand of pocket that was covered in poo. One of the less fabulous sides, but not any worse than a poopsplosion that goes up their backs and into other mysterious and physics defying areas. So enough about that, you may be asking yourself why do I need AIOs or AI2s? I am a pocket pro, wool aficionado, fitted fanatic, and snappy sultan. AIOs are for wusses. I say to you, rubbish. If you are a working mommy who is lucky enough to have your care provider use your pocket diapers, you probably haven't asked them to pull out the inserts after they are used. Which means, you probably are doing that yourself, hours later, with peanut butter poop gluing the pocket shut and the pungent smell of urine on your fingers. So what? Well, I personally don't enjoy that part of the cloth diapering experience, so I decided to invest in some AIOs for the baby sitter. When I send those with her, I just empty them into the drybag, and voila, no need to touch the dirties. I have Grovias and Bottombumpers that serve this function perfects. You can also use Sweetpeas (since they have openings on both ends) to do the trick if you can't bear the thought of having an AIO in your stash. Please excuse any mistakes, as I wrote this on my iPhone in an attempt to distract myself from packing.
