I did initially have some trouble with the rise adjusting snaps. They just wouldn’t stay snapped! Fortunately I was able to get a second diaper and although it’s snaps still don’t feel as firm as the hybrid’s, they work fine. Putting the diaper through the wash and then drying it all the way in the dryer on hot helps tighten the snaps up a bit. The diaper doesn’t have a layer of moisture wicking fabric (such as fleece), but I didn’t find that to be a problem. I change Holly’s diaper often enough that it hasn’t been an issue. But GroVia does have a soaker with a layer of fleece with organic cotton if you need something extra while on the go. Although I recommend the AIO diaper for sure, I think I prefer their hybrid cloth diaper.
GroVia has an option for parents who are environmentally consciencious, but don’t feel able to do cloth. They make what they call a BioDiaper, which is actually compostable as well as biodegradable. Here’s some more information about this innovative diaper:
With 93-95% of reported diaper customers choosing disposables, GroVia hopes to guide parents toward a familiar product with an opposite impact. The first disposable diaper made of Ingeo™ Fibers and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certified, the BioDiaper is made from renewable resources and approved under the strictest global testing and certification system as a product that contains no substances known as harmful to humans. The diaper incorporates biodegradable technology in its components yet maintains a super soft comfort and waterproof outer that disposable customers expect. GroVia is the first to introduce this proprietary technology to the United States.
