All In Twos Nappies
All in Twos these fall somewhere between a fitted nappy and an all in one nappy. They should not be confused with a two part nappy system. The inner absorbent pads popper in to the outer wrap and, once poppered, form a one piece nappy. The pads can be unpoppered for washing and to speed dry.
All In Two Nappies
All in two nappies (AI2) are a fairly small category of cloth nappies compared to all in ones or fitted nappies however don't over look them as they are very clever reliable systems. There are only a few brands that make all in 2 cloth nappy systems.
The waterproof outer cover has an insert poppered (snaps) inside and once this is done you effectively have an "all in" system. At nappy change time you take out the soiled wet insert and insert a new clean insert, the cover can be reused a few times before washing.
Some all in two inserts have elastic on the insert to increase containment however the cheaper more budget options such as the Little Lovebum snap and wrap are a flat pad that just poppers than lays inside the wrap.
Benefits of all in two nappies
All in twos make slimmer reusable nappies than fitted nappies, generally offer higher containment than a pocket nappy and all in one nappies.
Long term AI2 reusable nappies are more economical as you can just replace an individual part if needed.
All in two cloth nappies give you greater flexibility of using different fabrics without needing entirely different nappies. The waterproof cover re use at nappy changes so you need fewer wraps to inner absorbent inserts.

Close Parent Pop-In
Close Parent Pop In nappy system is another well known brand and popular bamboo fabric AI2 nappy system. I must add however that while the Pop In is officially an AI2 system most families treat it more as an all in one and never take the inserts out. Being officially an AI2 it's possible to buy separate bamboo inserts if you need spares or to help with your washing / drying cycle.
Pop-In is also available in newborn size which is incredibly popular as they are a very economical newborn system which fits very tiny babies, the boxset is often on special offers to help you get started too.

Washing an all in two nappy
The outer cover and the inserts can be washed together in one wash. The outer wrap will air dry super quickly, the wet insert won't dry as fast as the outers but dry quicker than fitted nappies.
The inserts can usually be tumble dried if required urgently but as with all cloth nappies it's better to air dry whenever possible.
