I mentioned in our last cloth diaper giveaway that I wanted to feature some of the new cloth diaper brands coming out on to the market. I sadly admit I never quite got hooked on cloth diapering but mainly because I never really found a style that worked for me. So in an effort to help change that for some of you I am going to introduce some brands to you as I go along researching. Coincidentally, The Glass Baby Bottle, which is a fabulous shop for your non-toxic shopping – and they are seriously cool people personally, offered to give away some GroVia Hybrid Cloth Diapers to our readers. So here we go!
After reading the material and checking these out, I think this type of cloth diapering system would be great for super busy parents who need something a little less laundry intensive than other options. I really believe ANY cloth diaper system is better than disposables but in this case, I know that it doesn’t come as easily to all of us. And if you’re working full time or part time and you have multiple kids, or whatever the circumstance… less laundry just sounds easier to me. Just sayin’.
Anyhow, here’s how it works. The shell of the GroVia Hybrid system allows you to use one shell through multiple diaper changes. So when the snap-in Soaker Pad gets wet, you change only the Soaker Pad instead of the entire diaper. Much like a pre-fold system. You snap in another Soaker Pad and you’re done. I imagine this might be an easy system to use when you are out and about a lot, or perhaps during travel. (Especially if you take advantage of their Biosoakers). I bet these would work perfectly for babies in day care too. The Soaker Pads are made with organic cotton so nothing but nice lovely organic cotton on your babies delicate areas.
I think what makes these versatile is the options that are available using them. You can also use, instead of the Soaker Pads their biodegradable Biosoakers for out and about use (and are also a nice way of trying out the system). You can also use the GroVia Shells with your favorite pre-folds, so you aren’t limited in how you use them.
They have several cute designs and colors and fit most babies 8-35 pounds. I was actually compelled to order some of my own for my son.
Get Them: You can purchase the GroVia shells and Soaker Pads as well as a variety of other GroVia products like their custom detergent, reusable cloth wipes and the Organic Cotton Booster Pads from The Glass Baby Bottle! I love supporting their shop… it’s a family owned and run business and they are great people.
The Glass Baby Bottle is so generously offering some GroVia Shells to one of our readers. The winner will receive one GroVia Hybrid Hook and Loop in Kiwi and One GroVia Hybrid Snap in Vanilla so they can try out both versions. Update: The Glass Baby Bottle just also added your choice of either a 2 pack Organic Cotton Soaker Pads OR a 50 Ct pack of Biosoakers! Yay!
