I generally suggest that people avoid all-in-ones because the cover gets washed every time the diaper does, and the covers do not stand up to quite that much abuse, so you end up with a good diaper you can't use any more because the cover has given out.
Re the Sandies versus the One-Size... I strongly recommend that you get two of the Motherease sampler packs: one with a Sandy and one with a One-size, one with an Airflow cover and one with a Rikki. Then try them out on your baby, when he/she is big enough (mine needed a month or so to grow into these diapers), and decide what works best. You may be surprised. I thought I'd want the One-Size, but Sandies worked best on my daughter. With this approach you will feel silly for a few days, washing only two diapers as you try them out, but it prevents you from investing heavily in a diaper and then finding that you don't like it!
Hope that helps,
