Bulky Review by KK
Value
Quality
I have found these to be too bulky on my 14 lb baby. The rise is too high even on the smallest setting. And the band in the front where the velcro is tends to rub on my baby's stomach. These just don't seem to be comfortable for him to wear. They are huge and bulky and wish I had known this before buying. Other people say they are trim, but I do not think that is for the smaller babies on the smallest setting. Hopefully he will grow into them soon. Bottom line: I would recommend Bumgenius over Grovia because of the fit. (Posted on 11/22/2014)
Great, slim diaper Review by Jennifer
Value

We got these when our Bumgenuis were leaking a little about 6-8 months old. They are a trim, easy alternative , just not at absorbent as a pocket diaper. Will use them for daytime and make sure we put a extra line or in between the layers, A hemp/cotton works well for us. (Posted on 8/30/2014)
If you want hook and loop get these Review by Stefanie
Value

I was not a big fan of hook and loop closures until I tried these. These shells are amazing! The velcro is so soft and the tabs are covered so they don't touch baby's sensitive skin. The wide band and long tabs allow you to get the perfect fit. (Posted on 8/26/2014)
Best aplix cover out there Review by Winona
Value

This is the best aplix fastened cover out there. The the integrated panel design is innovative and very easy to use. The only downside to this cover is that little ones can/will figure out how to unfasten this cover. (Posted on 8/21/2014)

So trim! Review by Haley
Value
Quality
These are the trimmest diapers in my stash. We primarily use bumGenius brand. When I put this on my 5 month 15 pound son, I could not believe the fit we achieved. He wears the smallest rise setting, and the velcro at the tightest position without crossing over. These will definitely fit until potty training. With pants on, it's honestly not much bukier than a disposable. The price point is excellent. When you compare the price of a day's worth of bumGenius Freetimes (6) to a days worth of GroVia AI2s (2 shells, 6 soakers) it's around $40 cheaper per day. (Posted on 1/22/2014)
VERY nice, but pricey! Review by Shandelle
Value
Quality
I really love the fit of these on my little fatty, but they are EXPENSIVE! For a breastfed baby, the mesh inside is nailed every time she has a poo so they are out of commission until I can wash/dry again. That said, they fit nicely, and the aplix is super soft so we really like having them in our stash. (Posted on 1/19/2014)
Great Diaper Cover Review by Amanda
Value
Quality
This is my favorite cover to use on my sensitive baby. The fabric lining protects her skin from the PLU. The hook & loop is soft but very durable. When the hook & loop gets wet it becomes less sticky & comes detached. They wash & wear very well & the elastic is protected by the cloth around it so as long as you let it air dry, it should last a very long time in a regular stash rotation. (Posted on 12/17/2013)
Love them Review by Karen

We love our Grovia diapers. I really like the hook and loop right now while our 10 month old hates getting her diaper changed. It is so much faster to change her diaper. It also gets a better fit. I am worried that the Velcro is not going to last, it seems like it has already lost some stickiness. (Posted on 10/19/2013)
Loving the Hook & Loop Review by Kayla
Value
Quality
By far this diaper has the best Hook & Loop out there. Out of all my diapers that are Hook & Loop this is my favorite one. My daughter seems to have a tough time trying to rip this diaper off and run around nakie.

I really like that the soakers can snap into the diaper as well. This helps prevent the soaker from moving around and keep the mess contained and not on the cover.

Love grovia system, hook and loop is second choice though Review by Liz
Value
Quality
GROVIA SYSTEM: I am fairly new to cloth diapering and I absolutely love this system. It is so easy to use and minimal contact with the yuck. I love how few steps the process is and how easy it is to care for my diapers (i.e. no folding, stuffing, organizing, etc). It's also great to be able to use the covers several times before washing. My husband loves them and it's really easy to teach people unfamiliar with cloth diapering how to use them.

PROS OF HOOK AND LOOP: I really like the material used for this system it is stronger than velcro and yet much softer. The hook part that is very scratchy in velcro is super smooth for Grovia covers which is great because you won't accidentally scratch your baby with it. The loop part is also neat because it doesn't wear out as quickly as every day velcro. All in all a genius invention. The stuff is so strong that it is actually sometimes a bit difficult to undo the cover.

The hook and loop cover gives you an exact fit for your baby whereas the snaps sometimes either have to be a bit too snug or a little loose. Additionally, it's more like disposable diapers which people are familiar with and therefore more intuitive to use.

SNAPS VS HOOK AND LOOP: I would choose the snaps over hook and loop because it makes laundering easier and the covers hold up longer. With the hook and loop you have to remember to tuck down and/or in the tabs so they don't catch on other diapers. I've forgotten a few times to have them snag on other covers in the wash which wears them out faster. I've also noticed that even if you carefully fold down the hook and loop it will still crease in the corners and far end of the hook part, thus it wears out a little faster.

I have both but I plan on buying more snap shells. I've read that you can go through more than one baby with snaps but that hook and loop covers will only last about one baby.

I love grovia products. I have used this shell with both the stay dry soaker pad and disposable grovia inserts. The shells work great and are easy to clean. They are one of my trimmest diapers and I love the aplix (makes for easy changes). (Posted on 5/5/2013)
Husband's favorite Review by Carmen

I started out my stash with one grovia shell and two inserts and my husband very quickly requested I buy more!! These are his favorite! If he is changing, this is the one that he goes for. He loves it because the inserts snap in and don't wiggle around. He loves the hook and loop because they fasten more like a disposable and it's easier to get a tighter fit. My favorite is the robot print! Too cute!! (Posted on 2/15/2013)

Trim and easy Review by Gayle

I love how easy these aplix diapers are - and love the snap in liner (not even daddy can mess that up!) - I just worry that they are going to get small quickly. That said, the fit is fabulously trim and the velcro is still going strong. I do, however, hate the fold under tab - it's too close to the velcro tab and requires some man-handling to get secure (Posted on 12/10/2012)
The Grovia System is the BEST Review by Lelaina
Value
Quality
After researching a ton, the AI2 system is the BEST! You need about half as many shells as you do inserts and they just snap in and GO! You can also use the disposable inserts for trips/travel or if you are going to be out all day and don't want to hassle with carrying around dirty dipes. So far I prefer the velcro over the snaps because you can get that custom fit for your little one. I've had the velcro for almost a year and they are still in great condition. I also use the Grovia shell for a swim dipe. Keeps the mess in and breathable on the bum. You won't be disappointing! (Posted on 9/18/2012)

We use GroVia all the time and absolutely LOVE these!! The snap inserts make diaper changes and laundry so easy!! I've recommended these to all my cloth diapering friends!

Cute and durable so far! Review by Jenny
Value

We have the mandarin and plane patterns that came with our starter bundle. I'm looking forward to the vanilla, blackberry, kiwi, cloud and surf colors that are on their way to us as well. We enjoy using these so far. I lay them flat to dry so they won't wear down in the dryer. They dry quickly so it's worked out well for us so far. The closures are quite strong so hopefully my little guy will be out of diapers by the time he can remove them himself! (Posted on 9/10/2012)

I have been using cloth diapers with my 4 month old son since he came home from the hospital and have tried several different brands of covers. I recently purchased 2 GroVia covers hoping the adjustablity of these covers would solve the issues we had with other brands not fitting my son correctly. The GroVia far exceeded my expectations and I am delighted with these covers and how they fit my chunky monkey! (Posted on 2/29/2012)
Great diaper - but go for the snaps instead! Review by Emmeline
Value
Quality
I love my GroVias. I've been using them for about a year now - and I have to say that I wish I had gotten all snap closures instead of velcro. The velcro starts out very strong, but as you use them, it becomes less and less sticky. I know you can get it replaced (or replace it yourself) but if you start out with snaps anyway, you don't have to worry about it! My daughter (15 mo's) can also undo the velcro now - but not the ones we have with snaps. Overall, a great product -- highly recommend it! (Posted on 1/28/2012)

I haven't used any other cloth diaper! I love the hybrid idea so much because you can just wash the soaker and keep using the shell, as long as there isn't a blowout! The colors are great, even if you go the neutral route. Lots of choices! And, the velcro is REALLY strong. I had a hard time getting the the fasten loosened from the laundry tabs!

I really like the concept of these diapers. I've been using on my son from 6months till now 2 yrs. He's a heavy wetter and even with a soaker he still tends to leak throw to the shell. He's never actually leaked all the way out, but it defeats the purpose of just switching the liner and keeping the shell. We always end up changing the whole thing. With that said this is still one of my faovrites! (Posted on 9/25/2011)

So easy to use with my new baby.
friends keep complaining of blowouts and I have never had any!! I like the hook and loop because it was easy to get a good fit at 3 weeks old. I know I will convert to snaps once the little one figures out the hook and loop :)
I believe the hook and loop helped to convert me to cloth because the closure is similar to disposable diapers that I'm use to using.

It is super strong so my toddler can't rip them off.

My husband and I started off our cloth diapering "stash" with a batch of GroVia AI2s from TGN and we were so impressed with the style: from shaping and gussets at the thighs to adorable prints and colors ... we are awaiting the arrival of our first baby, yet we cannot wait to dig into cloth diapering with a system that really meets our needs (my husband didn't like the idea of a pocket-style diaper ... I like the promise of easy changes!) and will hopefully meet the needs of our new baby to be! (Posted on 4/26/2011)
Great Diaper!! Review by Jaime
Value
Quality
This is my first experience using cloth diapers, and it was difficult to decide which system to try. We settled on two - GroVia and Flip. The GroVia are BY FAR our favorites. Our little girl was 6lbs12oz at birth, so we had to wait a few weeks before she wasn't swallowed up by them (the GroVia newborns weren't available when I bought my stash). They started to fit well once she topped 8lbs or so. The shell/insert combo is wonderful. As others have said, you can change the shell every few uses if it isn't soiled, so you only need about half as many. The inserts have the waterproof backing and are super absorbent - they can hold a lot of liquid but still not soil the shell! If I have any slight complaint it would be that the ends of the inserts take a while to dry...they always seem a little damp. I usually alternate drying them inside out and that seems to help. So far, we've had no leaks, but we are still waking up or changing every 3-4 hours. Very happy and plan on adding some GroVia AIOs for overnights as she starts to sleep longer. (Posted on 4/3/2011)

When I first saw cloth diapers I was hesitant since my friend used the "pocket" type. She directed me to The Green Nursery where I spent quite a while looking at everything.

Love Hook & Loop, Want Pocket Review by DeJarnatt21
Quality

I love GroVia's hook & loop, but I really prefer pocket diapers. I keep these for on the go , because they take up less space in the diaper bag (since you only need a couple shells with many inserts). If GroVia would make a POCKET diaper with this closure, I'd be one happy girl. I have asked on many forums, no one else makes a diaper with this closure!

These are so easy I've converted a couple of friends to CDing! I love having the option of using the cloth snap-in pads at home and the disposable biosoakers when out.

The GroBaby/GroVia hybrid was the first cloth diaper I tried and it's still my favorite! They're so easy to use (even for daddy and other family babysitting) and I love that you don't have to change the shell every time! I just air dry them between changes unless the shell is soiled... It really cuts down on laundry and the number of diapers you need :) (Posted on 2/5/2011)

We love our GroVias, but they seem to be a little too wide for newborns. I'm worried that my daughter spends most of the day bowlegged.
