Prefolds are a two step process:
The prefold, usually made of cotton. This is the absorbant part of the diaper.
2. Diaper Cover. These are made of a waterproof material and will keep everything contained. These used to be called "Rubber or Plastic Pants" but they have come a long way and can be found in so many adorable patterns!
Fitteds are also a 2 step process but without any folding.
Snap the aborbant fitted diaper on baby. Then snap a waterproof cover over the fitted.
These are my personal favorite diapers to use! The cover has a pocket that you stuff with an insert and then use the diaper the same as an AIO.
The difference between these and AIO is that the inserts can come out making them dry faster than AIO.
AIO diapers are as easy to use a disposable diaper.
The waterproof cover and fluffy, absorbant layers are sewn together making it an All In One diaper.
