Newborn Cloth Diapers – My Opinions After a Month


Post and linked posts may contain affiliate links. There’s a picture of my real model next to my previous model. 🙂 You have probably seen my reviews of newborn diapers that I did without a baby while I was expecting my son (and I think maybe even a few before!) If you’re ever looking for one, don’t forget about my review archive.

GroVia Newborn AIO Cloth Diaper Review

GroVia Newborn AIO 1

The GroVia Newborn AIO cloth diaper is an award winning diaper designed for babies 5-12 pounds.

GroVia Newborn AIO 2GroVia Newborn AIO 3 side
GroVia Newborn AIO 4 rear

I chose the gender neutral vanilla color, but it’s also available in several cute prints. The TPU outers mean you don’t need a separate cover.

GroVia Newborn AIO 5 snap closuresGroVia Newborn AIO 6 rise adjustment

The diaper has a simple snap closure, as well as a snap down rise for an even better fit.

GroVia Newborn AIO 7 inner and flap soakerGroVia Newborn AIO 8 leg elastic

The sewn-in and flap soakers are made of 80% certified organic cotton, so you do need to wash & dry the diaper 5+ times before it will reach it’s maximum absorbency.

Here it is measured folded and stretched:

All In Two Diapers Cloth Diapers Giveaway Hybrid Diapers Natural Fiber One Size Diapers Retailers Review

GroVia All-in-Two Review & Giveaway courtesy of Bippy Diapers (CLOSED 1/25)


grovia diaper

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 closure tabgrovia laundry tab

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!

soaker with elastic and attached doubler

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!

3 rise settings large soft closure area

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.

 I think the blackberry is a nice purple; not too girly for a boy!
Here’s the diaper on the small setting, folded and stretched:

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.

Giveaway: Bippy Diapers is offering one of my readers a GroVia set in their choice of boy, girl or gender neutral color (Bippy Diapers chooses the color.)  ARV $20.95.

Here’s how to enter: All entries go in the form below.  I love your comments (leaving a comment is a good way to remind yourself you entered), but comments don’t count as entries!  Mandatory entries include name, email address and what else you’d like to try from Bippy Diapers .  You can receive a bonus entry if you “like” Bippy Diapers on Facebook.
