How it works

When you see modern cloth diapers for the first time, it can often be surprising how similar they are to the well-known disposable diapers. Not only is the shape the same, they are also cut slimly, and neither complicated folding nor safety pins are necessary to keep the diaper in place comfortably.

But how exactly do modern cloth diapers work? What is the difference between All-In-Ones (AIOs), diapers, prefolds and diaper covers? Here are descriptions of the various models and pictures that will help you understand how they work. If you want an overview of the different models, please take a look at our nappie comparison , where the properties of the individual diapers are listed and explained.
