We Started Our Cloth Diaper Journey With GroVia's All-In-One Cloth Diapers - Review + GIVEAWAY!

We started our cloth diapering journey with GroVia!
They were the first cloth diapers we ever bought for Emma Bee.  I actually bought them for Emma Bee before she was even born.  She was born a preemie and was so so tiny!  She was so precious in her little cloth fluff.  So GroVia has always had this sort of special place for us.  

It may sound silly to some, but I find myself (and I'm sure other devoted cloth diaper parents do to) being sentimental about certain diapers.  They imprint some pretty special memories on our hearts.  They help us mark milestones.  The GroVia was our very first fluff.  And I'm so proud to be a cloth diaper mom.  GroVia really started us on our cloth diaper journey and for that, I'll always be grateful!

In 2013, she was just barely 3 weeks old and about 5 1/2 pounds when we attended our very first Guinness Book of World Records Great Cloth Diaper Change, and the diaper we changed, was a GroVia Newborn All-In-One.  The photo on the left below was taken right after the change.  A local photographer came to take photos of each of the babies there for a special keepsake photo.  That my friends, was a great day for this mama!  The photo on the right is my Emma Bee now, all grown up (almost it seems like) and 20 months old in her big girl GroVia All-In-One!


So GroVia has been with us since literally, day one.  We loved the Newborn AIO so much that of course, we wanted to try their other diapers.


The wonderful folks at GroVia sent us one of their GroVia All-In-One Cloth Diapers in this beautiful Sweetgrass print to try!  The really unique thing about this AIO is the side snaps and the inner soaker.  The inner soaker is designed so that you can customize your absorbency.  There is an additional piece of soaker that is detachable if you want less bulk but you can leave it snapped in for more absorbency or use as a nighttime diaper.



The lining is different than most of the cloth diapers we have.  The lining is made of a super smooth, soft IMO-certified organic cotton.  This lining is so soft!  It reminds me of my favorite t-shirt.  Ya know, the one you've had for years and have broken in to super awesome comfy perfection. It reminds a lot like a jersey knit.  And the soaker is really absorbent!  Emma is a heavy and frequent wetter so we leave the full soaker snapped in and it works great for day or nighttime.   The lining material drys really fast too which is great for us because we line dry everything so that faster things will air dry the better!


And the slim sleek design allows us to wear this diaper with a lot of different types of pants.  If you're a cloth parent already then I'm sure you've had some experience with the difficulties of pants and cloth diaper bulk.  Some pants just don't fit right but this diaper is much slimmer so Emma can wear her jeans with no worries! 


The side snaps I mentioned are pretty cool and help with this slim look.  We've never had a side snapping diaper before and I was worried that it would be awkward but it wasn't difficult or weird to get used to.  I like the way this diaper lays nice and flush across her tummy.  And the outer PUL material and material of the wings is nice and stretchy so it fits her curves and the fit is perfect.  No gaps around the legs at all!


Even though this design is so unique, it still has a snap down rise so the diaper will fit babies from 10 to 35 pounds or more.  So you can get a lot of long use out of this diaper!



The prints and color selection is great too.  And there are a lot of other styles of diapers and trainers to choose from.  You're bound to find something from GroVia that will work for your family!
