My prize package is sponsored by Bippy Diapers! Bippy Diapers is an online cloth diaper retailer that also has a store front in Bradenton, FL and offers Cloth 101 Classes for locals. Bippy Diapers carries great cloth diaper and accessory brands, as well as teething necklaces, baby carries, wraps and nursing covers.
Bippy Diapers also offers a diaper service, layaway (10% is due with remainder due within 60 days of layaway), gift certificates and a gift registry. All regular priced orders (no coupon code used) over $50 shipped to the U.S. receive free shipping every day! Other U.S. orders ship for a flat rate of $5, and Bippy Diapers will ship internationally too; just email her for rates.
Bippy Diapers is offering a fabulous prize package worth $51.15. Giveaway: One winner will receive a gender neutral color Bumgenius 4.0 (ARV $17.95), a gender neutral color Fuzzibunz Perfect Size Large (ARV $16.95), a small WAHMies Wet Bag (ARV $9.50) and a stick of CJ’s BUTTer (ARV $6.75.) The combined retail value of this prize is $51.15. Entries go in the Rafflecopter form.
Bippy Diapers sells cloth diapers, accessories and Moby Wraps, and they sent me a GroVia AI2 in blackberry to review. I’ve been curious about GroVia (love GroVia wipes) but haven’t had a chance to try one until now.
GroVia diapers come in snap or aplix closures. The aplix closure diapers have tuck under laundry tabs. I did find them a little tough because the loop to tuck under is made of the same soft, but grabby material as the front of the diaper, so they wanted to grab on!
The GroVia pack I received (includes a shell and insert) is being discontinued. In the future you will have to buy the shell and insert separately, but Bippy Diapers still has the sets in stock while they last! Bippy Diapers sells the sets for $20.95, or shells alone for $16.95.
The GroVia shell is waterproof and the organic cotton soaker is backed with TPU as well. The soaker also has its own elastic, for an additional defense against blowouts. If the shell is clean, you can re-use it by snapping in a new soaker. If it’s damp, let it air dry between uses. If it’s soiled or very wet, you will of course need to wash it!
The GroVia is one-size via a snap down rise, and is estimated to fit babies from 8-35 pounds.
You don’t have to worry about a Velcro strip rubbing baby’s belly because there isn’t one! The whole upper front of the diaper is soft fabric that the tabs will stick to.
The medium setting fit well on my 21ish pound little guy. Yes, I realize I have it closed crooked. Diapering this child is like trying to diaper an angry donkey sometimes! I actually really like Velcro closure diapers for this reason, I’m much faster with them than with snaps! Despite the uneven closure, I didn’t have any trouble with the fit or leaks!
Bippy Diapers sells other AI2s, plus AIOs, Pockets, Covers and accessories. Items new to the store include Bumgenius brights, GroVia prints and Moby Wraps. They offer free shipping on regular orders over $50, and flat $5 shipping on discounted orders, or orders under $50.
