Changing a cloth diaper... it may sound intimidating to some, but it's really not much different than changing a disposable diaper! GroVia's philosophy is "the simpler, the better", and that shines through in the designs of their diapers. The GroVia All-In-One's simple, one piece design goes on and off baby just like a disposable! If you're using the GroVia Hybrid option, you can use the shells multiple times before having to change them out... just remove and insert a new cloth or disposable soaker pad.

Besides the great diapers GroVia makes, they all also offer a great line of accessories to make your cloth diapering experience even easier and more enjoyable...
It's time for a change! After unfastening your baby's diaper, the first thing you'll reach for is a baby wipe... GroVia Cloth Wipes are very soft against baby's delicate skin. They can save families a lot of money, too, since they'll no longer be throwing money away with each wipe!
A job that would take several disposable wipes can often be done with just one GroVia cloth wipe! With cloth wipes, you don't have to worry about picking out a dirty wipe and throwing it in the trash... toss them both in the pail and wash them together! Not only does this make for an easier change, think about all that waste you're keeping out of the landfill by using cloth wipes.
Of course, using liners is just an option, not a necessity. If you plan to spray your diapers, you may want to keep some liners on hand for when you may not have your sprayer handy, like when you're traveling away from home.
Next, you may want to apply a little diaper balm to your baby's bottom. Many diaper rash creams you find at your local supermarket contain petroluem products and are not safe for cloth diapers. Using these creams can cause your diapers to repel moisture rather than absorb, causing them to leak. The GroVia Magic Stick is a diaper balm made with all natural ingredients and is safe for cloth diapers! It's in a convenient twist-up tube, so your hands stay mess free. It helps clear up minor rashes and can also be used as a preventative with each change.
If you feel like your needing a little extra oomph to heal irritated skin even faster, the GroVia Magic Stick Z is the same formula as the original Magic Stick, but with the addition of healing Zinc! It's recommended to use a liner with this diaper balm to protect your diapers, just to play it safe. Yet another great use for those Bioliners! You can use a liner as a barrier between the ointment and your baby's diaper, so when you have to break out the big guns you won't have to worry about build up and the possibility of repelling.
