Has anyone used AIOs on a newborn?

I've only used pfs and covers on my newbies so far, and it works great, but I'm wondering about having some AIOs for our next baby. Can you give me the pros and cons? Thanks!

yep. altho I used to love xs fuzzibunz, they didnt fit with a couple other kids so I went with lil joeys. I had a bunch of other stuff but those were my favs. easy, they snapped so no loud noises, no running on cord issues... and now I have 20 THX baby aio's. love love

Yes, we liked bg xs's and LOVED lil joeys. We knew we were going to need an AIO daycare dipe. The lil joeys have a cord snap down, are snaps not aplix, and the cute factor just cannot be ignored. The kangaroo and monster prints totally won DH over
I will say that DD is an average wetter and outgrew the absorbency of both AIOs before she outgrew the sizing though.

I had nanabottoms AIOS and preemie prefolds and bummi orginal NB covers. I loved the NB because they were tiny and easy to fit on my we one.

I only used AIOs and pockets on my newbie. Nb simplex were bu far my favorites for so many reasons. They clean up great, dry faster than any othet aio i've tried, have a snap down for the cord, are large size range and are super absorbant. I cannot say enough good things about them!!!

We are using all AIOs plus FBXS pockets on our newborn twins. Loving it! We have GroVia (some in the old cotton version, some in the current stay-dry version), Tots Bots TiniFits, Simplex, RagaBabes, Thirsties Duo AIO, FBXS, and BGXS.

Do your nb Grovia wick at the legs where the "ruffle" is?

We had xs bg's, xs thirsties and lil joeys... My dd peed through them all from day one with one pee, she was soaked. Only thing that has worked has been pf's and fitteds. They did fit nicely though
