Grovia All In One Cloth Diaper Review and *Giveaway*

Have you ever heard of the Cloth Diaper Store, Thanks Mama? If you have, great! If not, well you will now! Thanks Mama is an online cloth diaper retailer with large selections of the great modern cloth! As I am sure you know if you have been a follower of mine for a while, I guest blog once a month for them on the Thanks Mama Blog.


Thank you to Thanks Mama for providing me with a Grovia All in One Cloth Diaper for this review!

Matthew is an active, 9 ½ month old boy. He crawls, rolls, stands, sits, and even falls, just like any other baby. I wanted to review the Grovia AIO because, well, I have read some great reviews!





Arrived


My Thoughts
(The Review)

I had the option of color and I chose Ice, it’s a more boyish color. One thing that I do not like is that currently, the Grovia AIO only comes in 3 colors, one boyish, one girlish, and one neutral. However, their colors are different from any other cloth diaper company around.





Folds up small


The material on this diaper is super soft and non-irritating to my son’s skin. You know how sometimes, depending on the brand of diaper, it will leave the red mark from the elastic being too tight? Well, we didn’t have a problem with that while he was wearing it.





Good Fit


The side tabs that the front snaps on to, is also a lot stretchier than other diapers, which is great for his crawling. I am proud to say that we had NO leaks when using this Grovia AIO. The snaps also hold up strong and stay snapped, until you unsnap them. Matthew could not pull these snaps apart. Trust me, I let him try to!


The AIO piece is sewn directly in, but there is(see the green arrow in the Picture below)an additional snap in soaker for extra absorbency. Since he is a heavy wetter at night, we could never use this as an overnight diaper. I would not recommend this to a friend who has a heavy wetter for night time use. But daytime, when there is less time between changes it works great for us.





Snap in soaker



The Grovia AIO is a OS which means its rise is for an “average” baby. So, on Matthew it seems a little short, but it still works awesome.





Chunky Legs


The side snapping is also kind of awkward, especially if your baby rolls or tries to roll over during changes. You need two hands to snap the snaps, which prevents you from holding the baby to keep him/her from rolling.





Photobucket


So, after reading my thoughts, I will leave the decision up to you. Do you want a Grovia All-in-one diaper for your baby? Do you want a Grovia Diaper for a Mother to be? Do you just want a Grovia Diaper?





Crawling


Or, Will you just crawl away???


Well, You could buy it here from the Thanks Mama Store for $21.95
