I’ve heard the GroVia All-In-One’s praises sung by so many cloth diapering moms that I finally had to try one for Little Brother. Can I just tell you that if this had been one of the first cloth diapers in our stash, this diaper probably would have comprised the majority of our stash. The fit is very trim (even with the soaker snapped in), the crotch is somewhat narrower than most of our other diapers. This hasn’t posed any problem with leaking. I absolutely love the stretchy side tabs. They make the diaper very trim around the waist and allow you to get a perfect fit.
Compared with some other diapers we have, the rise is low. (My little guy is almost 31 lbs. so he is at the upper weight range for this diaper.) I have to admit though that I really like the low rise on this diaper. For my big bellied child, low-rise diapers usually allow his pants to fit around his belly better.
Because the diaper is an all-in-one it is extremely easy to wash. After the diaper is worn, there is no need to pull out a wet or dirty insert. Just throw it straight in the laundry bag, wash, dry on low or medium (or hang dry), fold the insert back into the diaper, and you’re good to go.
The inside of the diaper is comprised of an organic cotton soaker pad and is lined with cotton. I was a little concerned that the cotton would be kind of rough like it is on my Gro-Via Organic Cotton Soaker Pads for the Gro-Via Shell. It is not at all scratchy and is actually softer than any of my other inserts. It does stain easily, but, hey, it’s a diaper.
Because Little Brother is currently potty training–well, mostly daytime potty trained–we have only used this diaper at naptime and nighttime. Little Brother is not a heavy wetter so he’s never tested the limits of GroVia AIO’s absorbency, but even with tummy sleeping we have not had any leaking.
Priced at $22.99 the GroVia AIO is right in the mid-price range for cloth diapers. They are one size so they’ll fit your child from about 10 lbs-35+ lbs.
