If you missed last months post you can read all about the GroVia Hybrid Shells.  Be sure to follow along with us all day on social media, we have some prizes and a LIVE Facebook chat today at noon ET to talk about the GroVia O.N.E. #GrowingWithGroVia if you are following the hashtag! GroVia O.N.E. As longtime Grovia fans we were super excited to try the ONE as soon as it was released. At the time our second daughter was a toddler. It quickly became a go-to diaper for naps, long car rides, and even nighttime!  When I was pregnant with our baby boy I asked my husband if there were any particular diapers he’d like to see more or less of as we switched up our girly stash to something a little less pink.  His immediate response was that he would like a whole stash of the Grovia ONE. Not only did we add several new ONES to use during the day, but we never did get rid of our daughter’s and those became baby boy’s nighttime stash. As a newborn we we able to start using the ONE around 11lbs. The best fit for a little baby is with the snap in hook and loop and the small snap in soaker. At 4 months old and over 14lbs we moved …

Nighttime Cloth Diapering Solution: the Grovia O.N.E.

Like so many other cloth diapering mamas out there, once my little guy got to a certain point, regular cloth diapers just weren’t cutting it for overnight use anymore. Night after night I’d try different combos of inserts and covers and still my husband and I would end up blearily changing the diapers, pajamas, and sheets of our screaming child when we should all have been sleeping. We even gave disposables a try for nighttimes, and that was a pretty big leaky fail as well. How do other parents use cloth diapers overnight?  Finally, after asking around and doing a little bit of research, we decided to try the Grovia O.N.E. for overnight. We bought two, both in beautiful solids, and they are now a beloved and integral part of our stash. Here’s why I love the O.N.E.: The outside feels durable, and the inside is just so soft. It comes with two different-sized snap-in inserts, which can be used together or separately. They’re meant to help the diaper grow with your child, which is always a plus. The O.N.E. comes with snap closures, but if hook and loop is your thing, that’s fine because it also comes with hook and loop snaps that snap in if you want to use them! This means that the hook and loop strip can be easily removed before washing to keep it working …

Geffen Baby Insider: Prefolds & Absorbers

There are so many things to love about Geffen Baby products. They are made in the USA, affordable, and made using natural fibers. Cloth diapering can be such an investment with many families suffering from a bit of sticker shock. So it’s nice to find a USA brand that has quality and affordable products! Two of my favorite Geffen Baby products are the jersey hemp prefolds and the absorbers. We have used these products with a toddler and a newborn. The jersey hemp prefolds are so absorbent and such an affordable nighttime solution. I love how soft they are as well! With my toddler, these were great trifolded in a cover and lasted us 12+ hours overnight with no leaks! And the quick absorbers were my favorite microfiber replacement in all of my pocket diapers. I love how trim they make every diaper without sacrificing absorbency. On my newborn, the jersey hemp prefolds were the perfect solution when he started sleeping longer stretches at night. My baby was too tiny for most one-size diapers, but as he started wetting more and sleeping longer stretches, most newborn diapers couldn’t make it as long as we needed without leaks. The newborn absorbers were also the perfect solution to keep us in newborn diapers as long as we needed! Being a preemie, we used our newborn stash for the first 6 months of …

It’s Not That “Baaaaaa”d: Why You Should Try Wool

I’m a chicken. There’s no simpler way to put it. If I’m convinced that I’m going to fail at something, I won’t even try it. So, as I began researching cloth 6 years ago, one thing became absolutely certain to me: I would never, ever, under any circumstances, try wool. The process to use it! The price! The accessories! The fact that it really just seemed to be a glorified cover that would surely be about the same as using a PUL cover! Not. For. Me. I mean, the terminology alone was frightening. Lanolin, emulsifying cubes, longies, shorties, soaks… The people writing about them might as well have been writing a foreign language. Thus, when I finally started cloth diapering almost 4 years ago, wool was not on my list. I’d see people ask questions about it in the Cloth Diaper Support Group and shake my head in disbelief when the responders would say things like “it’s really easy,” “it’s totally worth the price,” “best solution for nighttime,” or “you won’t regret it!” Surely, I thought, these women were magicians. I mean, if anyone would mess it up, it would be me. Over lanolizing? Yup, I’d manage it. Throw it in the regular wash on my very first use? Oh, yeah, I’d totally do that. And then, my third child happened. I’d thought that my second was a heavy wetter. …
