Alva Baby diapers ship directly from China, so it took 3 weeks to get to me.
The diaper has snap closures with an overlap, is one-size via 3 snap down rise settings, and has a stay dry inner.
The diaper has a rear pocket opening, and PUL outer. The washing instructions say not to wash the diaper in water over 95 degrees (I have seen this washing instruction repeated on other diapers that I suspect came out of the same factory), however, optimal washing temperature for cloth diapers is more like 120-140.
The diaper came with a single microfiber insert.
Here is the small setting measured folded and stretched:
I put my 8 1/2 month old, 16ish pound son in the medium rise setting. While it seemed to fit OK, and didn’t leak, I noticed considerable “wing droop” the next time I changed him, despite the hip snaps.
My real question is how it will hold up over time. So, I plan to wash the diaper with each load, at my normal water temp, and I will report back in a few months. Update after washing for 5 months (published 2/5/13)
I paid normal retail price for the pictured diaper. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own.
