This diaper is cute and works the best! holds my 6 month old over all night. She has been a heavy wetter for the longest time. It took me some time to find these diapers. But I and very glad I did and have been adding them to my collection.

I adored our Aplix GroVia cover at first - we do some EC, which means frequent quick changes, and we trifold prefolds into covers rather than fastening, and this one stayed dry and usable through many changes and the clever loop cloth front made for a great custom fit. However, not six months after getting it, the loop was shot - the diaper would just fall off while he was crawling if he didn't have pants over it. While I like a lot of things about it, a cover that doesn't stay on is pretty useless.

For the record, we used both yellow-edge infant and white-edge wide medium prefolds in the Grovia successfully.

I love GroVia shells! There is something extra nice about the feel of TPU over PUL and they have really nice snaps. I also really like the mesh on the inside. I appreciate that it keeps the TPU off of my baby's skin; it also makes using an insert easier when putting on because it isn't slippery like it would be if the TPU were exposed. They hold up well and are the trimmest covers we have ever used. The elastic is also gentle on my chunky boy. I originally bought a couple for a trip to use with the disposable inserts, but I use them daily with the ClothEez OS Flats. I fold them into quarters then thirds and they fit so nicely. It is a nice trim fit. I would compare it to a Medium Simplex AIO- also a nice trim diaper. It is nice and trim with the GroVia snap in inserts and super trim with their disposables. I cannot comment on the hook and loop as I have never tried it. I recommend this cover.

The GOOD 1. trim fitting 2. can use the cover through several changes 3. fits a broad range of sizes (my newborn, my 15 month 19 pounder and my 30 month 26 pounder) 4. PUL does not touch baby 5. cute colors and prints 6. user friendly just snap in insert and go 7. nice soft organic cotton soakers/doublers

the BAD 1. velcro is completely shot after 6 months on covers 2. difficult to clean and care for 3. not for night use 4. inserts beginning to get holes after 6 months of proper care 5. Grovia does not stand by their product 6. soakers take forever to dry (2 cycles in dryer or 2 days hung) you pretty much need to hang them if you expect them to last 7. expensive 8. must have a very large stash of these for them to last and get even wear and to have enough while the dirty ones are washing and drying 9. must use special laundry detergent

If you buy this system these are my recommendations:
1. Buy only the snap covers NOT aplix
2. Buy only the organic cotton soakers and doublers (the fleece stay dry bunch up because the fleece and cotton in them shrink unevenly)use a separate fleece liner on top of organic soaker if you want stay dry
3. If you want to save money use with small size prefolds folded in thirds.
4. Don't plan on using these at night.
5. Plan on washing on warm with diaper specific laundry detergent and hanging to dry and note that most other diaper laundry can and should be washed on hot so this may mean a separate load for Grovia items NOT convenient!
6. their diaper balm is great as are their cloth wipes
7. don't waste your money on the disposable bioliners or soakers

Hope this helps

I doubled down on Gro-vias during my baby shower. I'd never cloth diapered before, and my local baby supply store carries these along with Bummis. I went with Grovias because of how trim they are. I love a big bottomed baby, but I also wanted my girl to fit into normal clothes.

I have very few complaints. The inserts work great, both cotton and fleece. The cotton is super absorbant, and the fleece is great because she stays a little drier, giving me a few more minutes before she fusses. The fit is trim as promised. My only issue was the fit around 2 months. She was super skinny and long, and the leg gussets just were not tight enough. I bought some prefolds, used a snappi with the covers and voila! No more leaks. Now that she's a little heavier, the gussets are working fine, and I still use the prefolds but just trifolded in place with no snappi. Mixing up my stash with both the grovia inserts and prefolds is a little more budget friendly.

Most of our stock is Grovia and they are by far our favorite diaper. They are a great quality product.

Wow am I impressed with these covers! My 18 mo old baby girl is a tiny little sweet pea, and I have had an awful time with wing droop from her other covers. I mean it was really starting to take the joy out of cloth diapering for me. Thankfully, someone recommended these covers! The waist snaps on these make it so that the wings are secure even on the smallest setting. I use these with pad-folded, organic, os, Clotheez birdseye flats. Now my itty bitty's diaper stays up against her body, and I love cloth diapering again! Hooray! Also, I can really see and feel the quality of these covers. Plus the'yre cute, really cute, to boot.
