I would like to share with my reader so you have clearer pictures about CD if you would like to start CDing your little one..
Type of CD:-

All in One - AIO - meaning it is one whole piece the absorbent layer (some call it soaker/insert) are sew to the cover/shell - wash the whole AIO everytime after used (below is sample AIO diaper (BumGenius 4.0 Freetime)
All in Two - AI2 - the absorbent layer (soaker/insert) are not sew or attached to the shell/cover. you will place/attach the absorbent layer on top of the inner cover/shell. You can wash only the insert/soaker after each changes without soil, shell/cover can be reused for twice but some mother change the whole set due to hygiene. Once soiled change the whole set.
