Anouk and Ariane created Omaiki in 2007 to encourage families to “change the world, one diaper at a time.” They are both Canadian, both mothers, and best friends as well! These wonderful ladies at Omaiki sent us a one-size AIO in the cute “Whoooo” print, with Velcro closure. It has 4 snap settings on the rise to give you a very wide range of sizes. This diaper retails for $28.50; solid color AIO’s are $26.95.
An All-in-one (or AIO) diaper is as close as you can get to a disposable diaper. Absorbent inserts are sewn inside and the cover is waterproof. That means you literally just grab it from the pile and fasten it onto your baby. But an AIO has two great advantages over disposables – it won’t end up in a landfill, and it looks awfully stylish and cute on little ones!
The Omaiki AIO features a 100% PUL waterproof outer layer and a smooth stay-dry suedecloth lining inside. The soaker portion of the diaper is 70% bamboo, 28% organic cotton and 2% polyester. As a little “bonus” the Omaiki AIO diaper does include an extra “mini” insert that you can lay or snap inside for more absorbency. It adds some bulk, so Omaiki doesn’t recommend using it with tiny babies.
We have a lot of covers, prefolds and flats in our diaper stash, so the Omaiki AIO style definitely makes me feel spoiled. It’s ridiculously easy to use and the Velcro closures make diaper changes super quick. It doesn’t take that long to dry because the main insert is only attached at one end. The laundry tabs are very strong and have never come undone in the washing machine or dryer. The Velcro on the wings seems to be *slightly* less sticky than the laundry tabs, but it hasn’t affected performance and the diaper definitely stays fastened. I asked the gals at Omaiki about it, and they assured me that the same Velcro is used on the laundry tabs as on the waistband.
I’m really happy with how our diaper fits. Velcro on the waistband means you can fine-tune the snugness and never have the problem of being stuck in between snap sizes. The leg gussets are soft and well-fitting.
Most AIO diapers on the market range from about $15 to $26 in price, so the Omaiki is at the higher end of the spectrum. When you spend the extra money on an AIO diaper you are paying for convenience, a trim fit and ease of use. Some mothers have just a few in their stash, like me. Others prefer to build an entire diapering system from AIO’s. If you have a situation where a friend or husband or relative is helping with diaper changes, it’s nice to have some of these easy-to-use diapers on hand.
Now let’s see the how the diaper fits on a wide range of sizes! First up is Erik:
