Giveaway: Ones & Twos Cloth Diaper

by Nicole

Nicole lives near the beach in Southern California with her husband and three young kiddos. She writes a a lifestyle blog about creativity, family life, community, and all sorts of other fun stuff, and also keeps a homeschool journal called The Bennettar Academy. Her most recent (free!) ebook is about why and how to make more time for reading.

Today I have a fun giveaway, from a new cloth diaper brand that’s fresh on the market, Ones & Twos— both for the veteran cloth diaper user and those of you who are intimidated, yet feeling the desire to dip your toes into the waters of cloth diapering.

One of my favorite Simple Organic posts of all time is one that was written by Megan Tietz telling us that it’s okay to cloth diaper part time– that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. In fact, I myself am not a full-time cloth diaperer— I recently shared more about what I do on The Simple Mom Podcast, and I’ll be sure to let you know when that episode is live.

In the meantime, I want to tell you about a simple option that might help you ease into cloth diapering, or to build your stash! I’ll show you some really cute photos of my baby girl, too, while we’re at it.

Ones & Twos Diapers: Modern Cloth Diapers for Busy Parents

 

These diapers were designed by a mom in Australia who was looking at filling a gap in the all-in-one category.  Most AIOs that are already available are organic or natural fibers – meaning they are costly.  The Ones & Twos are microfiber so they are more affordable.  They are also perfect for that new parent who really wants to try cloth diapers (full time or part time) but really wants simplicity and the ease of a disposable diaper.

In full disclosure, this diaper might not fit every baby. The are designed to fit most – from approximately 6.5 pounds to 40 pounds, although with the slim fit I’m not sure they would fit the chubbiest of babies. It fits my Hallee-girl great now (nine months old and under twenty pounds) but I’m not sure if it will last for her whole diapering career– we’ll see!

With that said, the narrow cut could also be seen as a benefit, as the Ones & Twos diaper is less bulky that some other cloth diapering options. I haven’t used AIOs very much, mostly due to the cost, so I must say that skipping the stuff-the-pocket step is very nice indeed.

Details about Ones & Twos

  • four snap down rise adjustments in the front
  • all-in-one – sewn in microfiber inserts inside a layer of stay-dry suede cloth
  • optional microfiber (with stay dry layer) booster can lay next to baby or stuff into a pocket for extra absorbency (comes with the diaper)
  • optional bamboo booster sold separately
  • easy to use (but super strong) Velcro/hook & loop closures
  • six simple and vibrant colors available plus white is sold in packs of 5
  • easy to use – just like a disposable only reusable
  • dry day & night
  • no fuss wash & dry
  • a budget blessing – only $16.95 each (or $79.95 for a pack of 5 white/only $15.99 each when sold in the pack)
You can visit Ones & Twos on Facebook and on Twitter, @onestwosusa for more info!

  1. Awesome giveaway! I cloth diaper *mostly* full time. Just not the days where we are spending a good portion of the day away from home (not often). I use almost only Gdiapers, but am just doing research now on branching out to a few other brands. :)

  2. I love seeing the new cloth diapers that are out there! I currently am cloth diapering on my two little ones and love doing it. Although, we do use disposables if we go on long outings.

  3. I started using occasional cloth diapers with our 3rd child after she turned 1, and am looking forward to using more with the soon-to-be-delivered 4th baby! We are definitely a part-time family, and the rinsing poo thing still is a little icky, but each time I use a cloth diaper it fills me with joy to do something that’s better for my baby and God’s creation!

  4. I cloth diapered my son all the way through. I’d love to win this for my cousin who is starting to diaper baby number two.

  5. I used to cloth diaper and now my two kiddos are OUT of diapers, but my SIL is just trying this out. She’d love to earn a freebie!

  6. I am CD’ing my baby and love it- but she still wears disposables at night! Mainly because we have them left over from our shower, but also because I am nervous about leaks! My baby is very petite, and I think the slender fit of these diapers would be perfect for her! :)

  7. I’m planning to cloth diaper with our first… due in 7 weeks! This would be awesome to try out!

    I have two babies- an 18 mth old and an 11 week old so disposables are getting expensive. My 11 week old recently had a diaper rash for about 2 weeks. It makes me feel so bad for her so I want to venture into the world of cloth diapers.

  9. I cloth diaper my 19 month old and will be cloth diapering his little sister (due in May), as well. We use disposables at night and pocket cloth diapers during the day.

  10. I’ve been cloth diapering for two years and would never go back! Both of my kids have sensitive skin so it’s a great option for them.

    Melissa Lessard says:

    I started out cloth diapering when a friend gave me her stash. Then we moved and didn’t have a washer dryer for quite some time and it’s been 7th Gen. disposable since. Time to get back to the cloth!

  12. Cloth diapers are awesome! Always love trying out new brands!

  13. I am pregnant now with #3 and I really want to take the leap with this one! I considered cloth diapering with my other 2, but the upfront investment of the cloth diapers held me back. Not only that but disposable diapers is what I am used to and what’s comfortable. I will have 3 kids 4 and under so 2 still using nighttime help with pullups. So this giveaway would be perfect to help me take the leap!

    I cloth diaper when my sweet pea is with me (she goes to Grammy’s a couple of times a week) and I love it. She is about to grow out of the set I have. Gotta figure out what to go with for the next 2 years.

  15. I’m planning to cloth diaper my first who will be here in june. Great giveaway!

  16. Our first baby is due in July, and I am planning to cloth diaper (at least some of the time, anyway). I’m currently researching pros and cons of all the types and brands (overwhelming!) and would love to give Ones & Twos a try.

  17. I would love to win one of these diapers to give to my DIL as she is planning on using cloth diapers for her first baby.

  18. These sound fantastic! We started out cloth diapering, but the expense (we used a service due to having a front load washer) and eventually the convenience once we started daycare and were just out of the house more often eventually led to disposables instead. Also, relatives would buy us disposables now and then while we were on our own paying for cloth. Baby 2 (boy) is due in July though and I’d love to at least part time cloth diaper! These sound like an option we could do ourselves easily enough at home.

  19. I use cloth during the day but disposable at night. These look like cute diapers.

  20. I currently use prefolds and covers but would LOVE to try these all-in-ones!

  21. I am a first time mom in my 2nd trimester, and when we get some little buns around here, I’m planning on using cloth diapers. These look fascinating–would love to try!

    Thanks–(and the pics are adorable!)

  22. I’m a ‘want-to-cloth diaper full-time’ person. Would love to try these!

  23. I was cloth diapering my 18 mo. until a few weeks ago as I needed a break from laundry before and during the arrival of our third baby (born 2 days ago). I don’t use anything fancy, just the pre-folds with a cover. I plan on cloth diapering the new baby full time when we get back into a routine.

  24. I’m due in June and I plan to cloth diaper — I’d love to win!

  25. I’m currently cloth diapering my two boys (2 & 22 months) and love it! It makes having 2 in diapers not very expensive! {I honestly can’t imagine the cost of 2 in disposable diapers!}

    I was afraid of the ‘ick’ when I started but it’s not bad at all and in many ways they’re easier than disposables…no running to the store last minute and instead of putting those icky poo dipes in the trash, you dump them & store them in your pail and there’s no smell! :)

  26. I’m pregnant with my first baby due in August and I am doing a lot of cloth diapering research lately. I would really like to try cloth diapering. When I saw this post, I had to enter- maybe it’s fate!

    Pamela O. says:

    I would love to try out one of these diapers. I cloth diaper mostly full time with my 2 year old and am expecting to do the same with my fourth that is due to arrive any day now.

  28. I do cloth diaper already, actually I get a break right now as my youngest has moved to panties. My next baby will be here in a couple months so we’ll start it up again.

  29. I used disposables with my first, but switched to cloth with my second because of allergies. I wish I had used them from the beginning! They are just as easy as disposables, and so much kinder to their skin and the earth! I am rebuilding my stash for surprise number three, and it will be cloth from day one. I would love to try an AIO (I used pockets before).

  30. I am a brand-new mom of a now 7-week old baby girl! I have wanted to cloth diaper since before she was born, but at first we were so overwhelmed with a new baby we just stuck with disposables. We started experimenting with cloth once she was about 2 weeks old, but got quickly frustrated with many leaks. Fortunately, I was inspired (via facebook!) by my many friends who cloth diaper to keep trying, and now it is going great! We have been really happy with prefolds and covers while at home, but baby girl is starting day care next week so we will plan to use all-in-ones and pockets when she is there. I’m always looking for new brands to try, especially inexpensive ones! Oh, and we do still keep disposables around, especially for travel.

    Christina P says:

    Great giveaway! I’ve been cloth diapering for about two years, but I’m only just trying out putting cloth in my diaper bag. We also go through disposable-only seasons when we’re overly stressed. Cloth diapering just makes so much sense–why keep on throwing away something you know you’ll need a thousand more times?–but it’s always more work than I think!

  32. I love using my cloth diapers and am always open to trying out new brands. I am looking for nice clothe diapers that are narrow but don’t gape in the leg.

  33. first of all, thank you so much for this giveaway! I did not cloth diaper our first baby, but I’m looking forward to doing it with our second! I always thought about doing it with our first, but it was hard to dive in with very little support/information. Now that I’ve found blogs, like yours! for the guidance, I’m ready to go for it! :)
    Thanks!
    Kara

  34. Oh they look lovely! I’m looking out for such a diaper for my next baby. I cloth diaper (most of the time) my toddler. I love the soft cloth bum : )

    Kristen N R says:

    My first baby is now 9 months old. I was very naive in the beginning and thought that since 90% of society uses conventional diapers then I couldn’t go wrong. I’m disappointed in myself 9 months later that I took the easy way out rather than doing what I know in my heart is better for my baby. I’m a stay at home mom struggling to make ends meet, so a free cloth diaper trial would be a great opportunity to prove to myself and my husband that cloth diapering is the way to go. I would love to be able to share how the brand works with my almost 9 month old who is 26+ pounds (I haven’t weighed her in a while).

  36. I do cloth diaper currently, but have no AIOs. My reason for CDing is anything but noble…I do it because I’m a cheapskate. Therefore, I’m sure you can guess why I have no AIOs! I’d love to win one to see what all the fuss is about. Thank you for hosting the giveaway. :)

  37. I’m a foster mom of a three-month-old. I’d love to cloth diaper, but the cost of getting started hasn’t been worth it when we don’t know how long the baby will be with us! This baby is long and skinny (70th percentile for height, 10th for weight) so it sounds like these diapers might be just right for her!

  38. I love cloth diapering! Both my girls used cloth diapers. I loved it, and it wasn’t nearly as hard as everyone told me it would be. Oh the looks on people’s faces when you tell them you’re planning on using cloth!

  39. I currently cloth diaper and I love it! I am expecting my 2nd now and want to build up my stash to prepare for 2 in diapers.

  40. I plan on cloth diapering our first due in May!

  41. I don’t use cloth diapers, but have wanted to try since my son was born. I haven’t taken the plunge because the whole process is foreign to me. Now that we’re a few months in, I have a bit more mental space to try something new!

    Erin Douglass says:

    Thank you for giveaway! We are expecting and I plan to cloth diaper. It is an investment and despite my research, I am confused! So many options and I want to spend wisely, so thankfully I have time before our baby is due. :)
    Thank you!!

  43. lovely product

    Heidi Rees says:

    I’ve been cloth diapering for nearly four years now between my two boys, and am due with our third this summer. I mostly use prefolds and covers, but have started using disposables at night since I got tired of the stinky overnight diapers that I couldn’t seem to beat.

  45. I did not cloth diaper with my daughter, but would like to give it a try with this one coming soon.

  46. avatar
    Cassandra says:

    I use cloth diapers with my 11month old most of the time. I work part.time and holds me back. Also I have trouble finding time wash and have them ready to use. This is the second time that I’ve used them. I feel like both times have been a success , part time.

    Amanda H says:

    I’m planning to try cloth diapers soon on my newborn, I’m being held back by fear of smells storing the poopy ones at home, wondering if there will be an residual smell in our washing machine and laundry room, and not knowing how to deal with cloth diapers when we take trips.

  48. We cloth diaper our daughter and love the ones we currently use but would love to try these!!!

  49. avatar
    Lyndsey Gentile says:

    We cloth diaper using Cloth-eeze prefolds and Thirsties diaper covers. We have no AIOs and would like to try so that we can give a well-rounded, educated opinion when discussing CDing with new parents to be!

    Micah Prine says:

    I started cloth diapering when my son was about 3 months old. Yes, saving money and helping the environment is nice, but I just LOVE how cute cloth diapers look on his cute baby butt! We cloth diaper half the time. The hubby just can’t get over the poop factor! I also just wanted to say I love your blog! It’s usually my morning breakfast reading. :)

  51. I have never cloth-diapered and I think it’s the fear of the unknown, how it would change my routine, etc. If I just quit making excuses and did it, I would be fine!

  52. I am currently cloth diapering and lovingit. We’ve had a few hurdles in overcoming the stripping/ laundering issue but generally I am so happy we made this decision. We are now expecting our next child and these diapers are reaching the end of their lifespan (they too were handed down). Thanks for the opportunity to try something new!

  53. I cloth diaper when I’m home. When we’re going out I use disposable so I don’t have to drag around dirty diapers until I’m home to wash them.

  54. I’m pregnant with my first baby and definitely want to cloth diaper, but I’m still waffling about what style to try. This type sounds perfect to have in the arsenal for potential caregivers who aren’t sure about cloth diapering (babysitters, grandparents, etc).

    Lauren Brock says:

    I am looking to cloth diaper my soon to be little one!

  56. I’ve never cloth diapered any of my other kids, but I’m expecting now, and I’m really hoping to get into cloth diapering. My holdup is that I’m a unsure of the cleanup method.

    I use disposables on my 1 year old, but have been researching cloth diapers. Would love to win this and try it out!

    Sarah G. says:

    I cloth diaper during the day at home. At night and when we are going somewhere, we use disposables.

    Jessica Klanderud says:

    I currently cloth diaper my oldest but since I am pregnant with #2 we are looking at trying some new kinds. This one sounds great.

  60. We cloth diaper when we are at home. I usually use disposables when we are going to be gone most of the day

  61. We are currently cloth diapering our 2nd girl and we love it! It would be nice to replace some of the older ones that got a lot of use while building our stash!

  62. My DD is 5 weeks old and has never worn a disposable. :-) I don’t trust the chemicals in them (a chemistry major made me very careful about what chemicals I trust on our skin). DD has sensitive skin and needs stay dry pockets or AIOs so we would love to try this diaper!

  63. I’ve been cloth diapering my baby (now 16 mo) from the beginning. I have another one due in August that I’ll also be cloth diapering. I use pocket diapers but would love to try an all-in-one. Great giveaway!

  64. avatar
    Mary Beth says:

    I use cloth diapers all the time except for nights, when we use sposies (for now). I’m waiting for DD to grow into a size medium wool cover, and then it’s all cloth at night, too. I use prefolds and covers (which I LOVE), so I’m not sure what I’d do with just one AIO diaper, but I guess I’ll figure it out if I win one!

  65. I cloth diaper my grandbaby when he stays with me, just to give him a break from paper diapers. I’d love to try this brand!

  66. My daughter-in-law is planning to use disposable diapers, so I’d like to be able to show her this option. Thanks!

  67. Would love to explore cloth diapers, as disposables are expensive and NOT good for the planet!

  68. With our last and final child….a 5 1/2 year gap….we have decided this time around to try cloth nappies. I am slowly building my stash, mainly with second hand cloth nappies, ready for my baby that is due in 9 days. Fingers crossed!

  69. We have been using cloth diapers for nearly five years now. While we mainly use prefolds with covers, we’ve found it’s great to have a few AIO’s on hand!

  70. We clothed diapered our first with gro via diapers and we now mostly cloth diaper our second with the same. Unless we are out and at night. Would love to try something new

  71. So far I’ve been held back by the cost – so this new brand seems perfect for us!

  72. We cloth diaper full-time around here. We started just for savings of cloth vs. disposable. We use pockets, so I’ve never tried an AIO. Thanks for the giveaway!

  73. I have cloth diapered both my kids and loved it! The way cloth diapers have changed even since I started 4 1/2 yrs ago just blows my mind! I always love trying new diapers. I don’t have any AIOs so I would love to win this! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Carolyn S says:

    My first baby is due this August, and I plan on cloth diapering. It’s nice to know about another brand to add to my list. I had no idea there would be so much info to read about cloth diapers and so many different brands and styles!

  75. I full time cloth diapered my 2 yr old from birth until he potty trained a few months ago. We do have to use disposables at night now because I can’t find a system that will hold up to him all night. We plan on doing the same with #2 due in August.

    Shelly :) says:

    I am due the end of August and would love to cloth diaper but have no idea where even to start on brands! This would be awesome to try out.

  77. I have cloth diapered for 4 years now with both my boys and LOVE it! It’s so much healthier for babies to not be wraped in plastic all day, and my sons diaper rash and eczema cleared right away when we made the switch to cloth. I’m full time cloth right now, but we’ve had periods where they would wake at night wet and then we would use a disposable. It’s better for the environment and, let’s face it, they are so dang cute!

    Ashley Swenson says:

    I cloth diaper my 6 month old son and have exclusively pretty much from the start. I love it! We could use a couple more that are simple and “sitter” friendly! Would love to try these out :)

    Brittney McGann says:

    Just started cloth diapering to save money and it’s so much easier than I thought! I wish I had started with the first baby.

  80. I would LOVE to win this giveaway! I have always wanted to try cloth diapering (I have 5 kids), but it hasn’t been until recently that my husband has been close to wanting to try it too. It IS kind of expensive right off the bat and since we live pay check to paycheck, it can be pricey up front (though, obviously it pays itself off fast) I have 2 currently in diapers, so saving money is always welcome!

    Elizabeth says:

    Would love to go one step further to cloth diapers!

  82. I currently cloth diaper and have only used Softbums, which I love – no complaints! But I am expecting baby #2 in September and so it can’t hurt to expand my stash, and I’d love to try something new!

  83. I’m not cloth diapering, and I feel twinges of guilt about it. My reason is that we’re on our last baby and I can’t justify the investment (I wish I had thought about cloth diapering 2 kids ago!) and I feel overwhelmed by the different options.

  84. I love cloth diapers. I love the feeling of saving money and not adding more trash to the land fills. I am also a firm believer that they helped my daughter potty train faster. She was completely potty trained by 18 months. Here’s hoping my one year old son follows in her footsteps!

  85. I cloth diaper full time. The only time we don’t is on vacation that lasts more than one night and when anyone besides my husband and I watch our daughter. We are in the process of potty training, but expecting a newcomer in May!

  86. I love cloth diapering!! We use bum genius but I’d love another to add to our stash!

  87. I woud love to try cloth diapering, but i’m a bit nervous about it…these sound like a great way to ease into it without too much headache!

  88. I cloth diaper my 18 month old and I love trying new diapers!

  89. I cloth diaper with GMD fitteds and Bummis covers, but would love to try something new!

  90. I currently use disposable diapers. I never thought about cloth with my first one (and we moved alot during his first year of life), then I had two in diapers and disposables sounded easier. Now I am pregnant with my third and kind of stuck in my ways of just buying the disposables.

  91. i currently cloth diaper part-time with our 17-month-old — i have cloth diapered all of our 6 kids at some along the way.
    thanks,
    shana

  92. I’ve used Motherease cloth diapers since my oldest (now 5 1/2!) was born. But I’ve never tried AIOs and would love to have one to use on my youngest.

  93. I cloth diaper my 22 month old daughter and my 7 month old son. We do use disposables at night otherwise my babies get rashes. We love cloth!

  94. We were cloth diapering until we moved; my diaper sprayer is still in parts and I’m reluctant to start again until it’s fixed. When baby #2 is a bit bigger we’ll get it going again. :)

  95. I do – mostly bumGenius – and mostly when we’re just home for the day…

    Ashley H. says:

    I plan to cloth diaper our baby once he/she is born in a few more months.

  97. Hi! I have just started using cloth diapers as of three days ago! Love it so far!

  98. We sometimes cloth diaper and sometimes don’t. With 5 kids, homeschooling, cooking from scratch, growing and preserving a lot of our own food, and working from home, it is easy for me to fall behind with cloth diapers (despite my good intentions). I was hard core into cloth with baby #3 and crashed and burned by baby #4. This time around I’m just going with doing the best I can. These look like great diapers to make it easier though!

  99. Well, you’ve gotta start somewhere, right? I just started cloth diapering with our 6th child. :-) He is now 4 months old and I love it!! I haven’t had blow outs at all (except twice when I didn’t get the cover on right). I can attest to the fact that this is a huuuuuuge improvement over the other 5 that were in disposables. I do cloth diaper full-time and it isn’t nearly the hassle I thought it would be. I absolutely love it. The time saved in trying to get blowout stains out of baby clothes has far exceeded the time it takes to actually wash and dry the diapers themselves. :-) My favorite diaper right now is the Softbums Omni – but they are pri…cey! So I am constantly looking for them used. I am always open to trying out new ones, though!

    Wendy Weaver says:

    I’d love to try cloth diapering, especially with something other than the old style- the way my mom and Grandma did it. I thought I’d try a few babies ago, but hubby said, “No way!” He likes to change the babies, too, and can’t deal with washing something out! But maybe I could try one for when it’s just me at home!
