Rosie's naps AIO
Posted: Tue Aug 23, 2005 8:42 am
Just had to start this thread because I have been trialling Rosie's AIO on Matthew... and I know they're coming soon...
Love them, great containment, great absorbancy, very trim, and sooo easy!
What impresses me most is that these dry really quickly, faster than my fitteds!!
We have a PUL AIO and a Windshield AIO (like Windbloc but better) - I love them both and honestly couldn't pick a winner!
These are DHs new fav nappy!
Rosies AIO which size to get?

I've just ordered a couple of Rosies AIO's for our boy, they sound fantastic. With our huge nappy collection we haven't used AiO's before so it will be a new nappy experience. Just wondering how the fit is compared to Rosies fitted naps and super soakers. (i have asked Rosei but i thought i'd get your thoughts too)... Our son Poutama is 4.5 months but already weighs almost 9.5 kg... he fits his size medium Rosies fitteds on the largest setting and super soakers on the next smallest setting... we got his Swaddlebees in a size large which was a good move as they fit perfectly. He's got a big puku and chunky thighs... and is growing heavier every day! Its still 6 weeks until he starts solids -i suppose he might have a growth spurt then too...

I have a small fleece AIO (more in the mail hee hee). I really like the fit on Alex (almost 7mo, and 7.7kg) - she has chunkier thighs than her middle. Alex is almost out of her small size H/V due to thigh size and rise - sometimes get a problem with builder's crack, while it pouches out a little at the front. A good cover fixes the pouching though. In her medium SS, the tabs are crossed over, and otherwise a good fit, though makes her look massive around the bum.
Her small AIO tabs almost meet in the middle, making a lovely fit around both waist and thighs, though once when DH put it on he must have done something screwy as he got a little leak out of one leghole. The rise is a good height for Alex too.
Overall, I'd say that the small AIO is a little bigger all over than a small H/V, specifically with a more generous thigh:waist ratio, and a higher rise.
Sorry I can't offer any review on the medium size (which I assume you are getting), but I would assume a similar comparison.

We've got one! I love it! With both the Super Soaker and Hemp / Velour fitteds I do up to the tightest snap without any overlap IYKWIM.
With the AIO I do it up so the velcro tabs meet in the middle, I could overlap a little but then the elastic leaves red marks on his back, this gives a great comfi fit.
I think the AIO probably has a little more room in it then the fitteds. I can only go out one more snap on the fitteds before I run out (unless I only do up one snap on each side - not sure if that would hold?) but the AIO's I've got the whole vercro panel to move out along.
Oh these are all mediums also. Liam is just over 10kgs ATM and has big thights but slim hips and waist and quite a long body (yeh I know - weird shape, I struggle to get covers to fit his shape - as a rule velcro covers don't work coz if they are tight enough on his waist they are too tight on his legs - but we don't have this problem with the AIO

Just got two mediums...I had saved a load of washing so that they could go in with it if they turned up! But I was so impatient I've put one on her without washing it
(tell me you've done that too!)
Fit is very generous. Tessa is 18 months, 10kg. I reckon she'd have been fine in a small (I prefer a trim small-looking nappy), but the mediums will be more absorbent being bigger. Comes right up to her tummy button at the front and no chance of a builder's crack at the back - it's really quite high. Velcro is almost touching in the middle, but not quite. I can tell these are going to become my favourites - certainly the easiest to use! Now if only they came in cute prints!!!! Or at least pink

I ALWAYS try nappy's on straight away!
Proud owner of 3 small & 1 medium Rosie's AIO(keep the medium for nights)...
Have been using for about 6 or so weeks? Only experienced wicking on a couple of occassions (mine are fleece)

Liz, would it be too rude to invite myself round and see if the smalls fit Tessa? If they dry as fast as hemp inserts I'd find it all too easy to justify switching systems! But I'd like to know if she'd be OK in smalls for daytime.
Smalls or mediums?

When our mediums arrived they seemed really bulky and not the best fit. Poutama was just under 10kg at that stage and Rosie suggested i try the small size. Well he must have had a big growth spurt (he was 10kg at his 5 month weigh in three weeks ago) as now the mediums fit perfectly and the smalls which arrived last week only just do up! So i'm exchanging them for more mediums! I'm sure a 18 month old whose fully mobile will be a much more trim 10kg than our buff boy!
The AIO's seem to last for ages and dry so quickly... the perfect nappy? Not sure how they'll be in the summer -hot? i imagine it will be lots of bare bum time anyway...

We have one fleece AIO, and I love it! I have a large size and it fits both my boys, but I save it mainly for Byron. We haven't had a poo test in it but have never had any wee leaks/wicking.
I would love a whole collection of these, they are so easy and they work really really well.

She wore it for four hours and subjected it to a poo test - not bad for a first wearing!!!!! It's now washed and on the line - I washed a hemp insert at the same time to see which dries faster...it'll be interesting to see if it gets dry overnight (I wonder if I'll get up at 2am to check!!!)

I tried our sm size AIO on Saturday on 21 mo dd (I was going to save this napy for baby but couldn't wait!) Anyway fitted 9-10 kg Rachel perfectly'.
I really like them.
I got to show it off to a friend (whose pregnant) on the Friday before that too!

Hi Rebecca - do you remember it was you that got me into this nappy thing????
Posted: Wed Nov 02, 2005 9:18 pm
MTM - i would love a visitor (or 8!) but Isla has chicken pox!!!
I'm suffering majorly from cabin fever, we are totally bouncing off the walls!
Anyway, I think she will still be contagious until Friday? her spots originally showed up Thurs evening/Fri am, and from what i've read it says that they are contagious for a week...
You are most welcome though! I will pm you my ph number...

These dry seriously fast! And worked fine overnight (sad to say I was sceptical
) Not a hint of dampness.
Now why would anyone go use fitteds and covers or spend time stuffing pockets or folding anything (except for a teeny tiny baby perhaps)??????
I LOVE these.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit to this.....but.......I put one on at 11:30 yesterday and took it off at......
I kept checking - but it just didn't seem really wet/heavy. OK by 4 o'clockish it was heavy, but T's butt was still dry so I wondered how long it would go without wicking
Can't be good to be in the same nap ALL day but it was an interesting experiment.
