The GroVia Hybrid Cloth Diaper | Review, plus FuzziBunz vs. GroVia & Flip vs. GroVia

If you’ve been reading styleberryBLOG for a while, you know I am a minimalist when it comes to baby stuff. Not baby clothes, but baby stuff. ;) Cloth diapers are no different. I want a simple stash. Not too many brands. Nothing complicated. I need it to be simple & efficient. Just like everything else in my house.

I have been a fiercely loyal FuzziBunz One Size diaper user since I began cloth diapering almost two years ago. They are my everyday workhorse diaper. I never thought I would find anything that I liked as much, nor was I willing to invest the time, energy & money into finding another product if the one I was using fit all my needs. But there was one need that the FuzziBunz could not meet: morphing into a diaper I could use when I was traveling & did not have access to a washing machine. I tried the Flip Hybrid Diaper (and wrote all about it here) & was just not happy with the results. So I asked the super helpful group of cloth diapering mamas over on my styleberry facebook page what they were using when they traveled. & boy did they deliver. (thank you!!!!)

I decided, in a matter of hours, that I was going to give the GroVia Hybrid Diaper a try. I liked what I saw & needed something, quickly. I called Liz at Go, Baby, Go! & was able to go pick a couple up right away. She is here in San Antonio (but you can order online) & she offers a 10% military discount! So, after a few weeks of putting this diaper through the ringer & using it WITH my FuzziBunz stash (not instead of it) I have quite a few things to share. I really like it. Here’s the scoop:

WHAT IS GROVIA?

GroVia is a brand of cloth diapers. There are many different styles under the GroVia brand. I am going to talk about GroVia’s Hybrid diaper. Specifically the GroVia Shell Snap Closure.

[you are looking at the snap sizing system & the snaps that secure the waist]

[the elastic is nice & tight, which I found to be a good thing. also note the two snaps on each tab, allowing for four points of attachment to the waist snaps.]

WHAT IS A GROVIA HYBRID DIAPER?

A GroVia Hybrid Diaper is a diaper with options–both cloth and disposable –with a reusable shell. All of the parts are sold separately, so you can buy what you need to & use it how you want. The company says you should need 2-4 shells per day & I would say that is true. I used each shell about 8 times before washing–which means I can easily get by with just two! I purchased:

  • The GroVia Shell Snap Closure (2)- this is a shell only, & it is lined with mesh. It has a snap sizing system, which means it is a “one size” diaper that will fit most babies 10-35lbs. There is a sister product that looks the same but uses velcro. I am just not into using velcro, so I chose to buy the snaps. It is waterproof.
  • The GroVia Organic Cotton Soaker Pad (2-packs of two)- this is a CLOTH insert. It has two snaps on the back that allow it to easily snap into place in the shell & stay put. It has a waterproof back. & it is gusseted with cotton. It needs to be primed before use–launder 3-5 times to allow the slick coating to wash off of the cotton & to increase absorbency.
  • The GroVia BioSoaker (1-50ct, 1-20ct)- this is a DISPOSABLE insert. It has sticky tabs (much like a maxipad) that are used to stick it into the shell. It is fragrance & dye free, plastic & chlorine free–none of the harsh toxins used in disposable diapers. It is also biodegradable & compostable. My favorite feature: it is gusseted and hugs the baby very well.

undefined undefined undefined

HOW DO YOU USE THE SHELL’S SNAPS?

The GroVia Shell Snap Closure is very simple to use. It has a number of sizing options using the snap system.

  • LENGTH & LEGS: you can use snaps to lengthen the diaper, making it usable for newborns (of 10lbs) up to toddlers (of 35lbs). I typically do lot like a snap sizing system, but the way this one is designed allows for minimal bulk when sized all the way down. The legs tighten up well, when the snap sizing system is used.
  • WAIST: the GroVia has two horizontally placed snaps on each side, allowing for a good secure waist band. The diaper stays put & the tabs can even be folded over one another if you are fitting an infant with a tiny little waist. It is elasticized in the back.

undefined

HOW DO YOU CARE FOR THE SHELL?

GroVia recommends washing your shell like you would any cloth diaper. I highly recommend using Rockin Green Cloth Diaper Detergent (I use Hard Rock, Rage Against the Raspberries). If you need some help learning how to wash cloth diapers, be sure to check out the “how do you wash them” section of my post: Cloth Diapering for the Modern Mom. GroVia recommends line drying and the shell should dry completely within 2 hours. (great for hand rinsing in a hotel, then hang drying). undefined

HOW WELL DOES THE DISPOSABLE BIOSOAKER INSERT WORK?

I am REALLY happy with this product! As you read before, I had a failed attempt at using the G-Diaper Disposable insert with the Flip Diaper. This is a totally different product-leaps & bounds above anything out there. Here why I love the disposable BioSoaker:

  • it actually STICKS in the shell. You peel off paper to expose two sticky spots (one in front & one in back) and they stick to the mesh so the insert does not move.
  • it has a waterproof back. Unlike the G-Diaper insert, this one will not saturate the reusable shell, because of the waterproof backing. Baby pees & poops, waste goes where it should & shell can be reused.

it has gusseted sides, keeping the crotch area well protected against leaks. What this means is that when you have a big #2 diaper, everything stays on the disposable part & should not touch the reusable shell. We had several giant #2’s & nothing touched the shell. SUCCESS! undefined

HOW WELL DOES THE ORGANIC COTTON SOAKER PAD WORK?

Well. It is absorbent. I like that it, too, has a waterproof back so although it may be saturated, the shell still remains clean & dry. I like that it snaps in & doesn’t move. I like that is it wider in the back than the front, where most of the saturation occurs. I also like that it has gusseted sides.

However, because it is so thick, it does take a long time to dry in the dryer & a couple of days to hang dry inside…at least down here in South Texas where it it fairly humid. When it is wet, it feels wet to the baby because there is nothing (like the fleece on the FuzziBunz) between the saturated pad & the baby. The Soaker Pad does need to be washed 3-5 times prior to use, on hot, and NOT with any other cloth diapers. There is a coating that washes out & maximum absorbency is achieved after about 10 washes.

I did not buy this diaper to use as a true cloth diaper, but I’ll tell you why I would consider it: since there is no fleece protecting the saturated pad from touching the baby, the baby will feel wet. I like this for a toddler who is starting to potty train. I don’t love this for an infant who may sit in it overnight. undefined

THE GROVIA HYBRID VS. THE FLIP HYBRID

These two diapers have the same end goal, but are designed with a few big differences. Here’s what you need to know:

  • SIZE: The Flip is long & wide without tight elastic. The Grovia is shorter & narrower and has a nice elastic waist & legs. I prefer, very strongly, the fit of the Grovia. It is a very similar in size & shape to the FuzziBunz One Size diaper.
  • WAIST SNAPS: The two waist snap systems are very different. The Flip diaper uses the BumGenius snap system, and has two vertical snaps that stretch across. The Grovia has two horizontal snaps on each size, giving a much sturdier fit to the waist, as the waist is secured in four separate snap points. I prefer the GroVia based on waist fit.
  • SNAP/STICKY ATTACHMENT: My biggest struggle with the Flip was that the disposable insert would not stay put. If I were to use the cloth insert that is sold for the Flip, it does not have any mechanism to secure it either. The GroVia inserts are secured, whether you use the disposable or cloth options. The disposable option sticks after removing two peel off tabs, much like a maxi pad. The Organic Cotton Soaker Pad is secured to the diaper using two snaps, one in front & one in back. It doesn’t move.

DISPOSABLE OPTION: I used the G-Diaper disposable inserts with the Flip & my two complaints were that (1) they did not have a waterproof back, so the pee soaked right through to the liner on to the shell & (2) they were flat & easily bunched up, making it difficult for them to catch a #2 on the insert itself. The GroVia disposable BioSoakers solved both problems: they have a waterproof back, so the urine does not touch the shell even if the pad is saturated and it has gusseted sides with a sticky back, hugging the baby nicely & sticking to the shell so it stays in place.

[behind the GroVia Snap Shell is the Flip diaper on the left & the FuzziBunz One Size diaper on the right. The GroVia is almost the exact same size & shape as the FuzziBunz OS] undefined

USING GROVIA WITH FUZZIBUNZ

I have been able to nicely combine the two brands to make a very versatile stash, with many options. Here is how I have experimented:

  • FuzziBunz OneSize shell (nothing stuffed in the pocket) + a GroVia Disposable BioSoaker stuck to the fleece. This worked nicely & worked a lot like the GroVia shell. Might eliminate the need to buy the GroVia shells if you need this temporarily–but it is trickier to wash the FuzziBunz shells because I think it is more difficult to wash waste out of the fleece than out of the GroVia mesh if there is a little accident & you do not have access to a washing machine. GroVias are easier to wash in a sink.
  • FuzziBunz OneSize shell + one FuzziBunz microfiber insert + one GroVia Organic Cotton Soaker Pad for double stuffing overnight. This worked better for us than two FuzziBunz microfiber inserts for heavy wetting overnight. *be sure to put the GroVia soaker pad BEHIND the FuzziBunz microfiber insert–as the GroVia has a waterproof back that nothing soaks through!

WHY WOULD I USE A HYBRID DIAPER?

Like we talked about with The Flip, you might want to use a hybrid diaper:

  • when you are traveling & do not have access to laundry facilities
  • when you are traveling & do not want to carry the bulk that comes with a CD stash
  • when a friend or babysitter is watching your CD’d baby–this way they can throw the mess away!
  • for a daycare that will not take CD kiddos
  • for when you (oopsie) run out of CDs because you forgot to do laundry :x
  • for moms or dads who are not yet ready to make the full plunge to CDing, but are looking for something inbetween CDs & disposables
  • for parents who work outside the home, who cannot wrap their heads around another couple loads of laundry per week, but still want something other than a typical disposable diaper
  • for moms who cannot convince dad that CDing is the way to go…& needs something to break him in ;)

WRAPPING UP

A couple more innovative uses:

  • as a SWIM diaper! I use the shells, prefer the GroVia, as a nice diaper to put on the baby for the pool. (no inserts)
  • I have also heard that these make great training pants for your potty training toddler.

You should also know that GroVia is having a promotion right now where you can buy 3 shells and get 1 FREE through April 30th! Might want to jump in & take advantage of the sale!!

If you have anything more to add about your favorite Cloth Diaper for traveling, please share as a comment! If I missed something or need correction, please don’t be shy–I learn SO much from all of you. I’d love to hear what you have to say!

VIDEOS

Ohhkay. Some of you requested video to go along with this post, so I brushed off my point & shoot’s dust & broke it out to film a few things. You will find three separate videos of three separate topics. Hope they are helpful & thank you for all your support of styleberryBLOG & the styleberry YOUTUBE channel!

-shawna- - I haven’t! But I hardly ever use our GV’s! G diapers are SO cute!

[Reply]

-shawna- - Personal preference! :) I buy chlorine free, biodegradable diapers when I must use disposable, so truthfully, there isn’t a good reason EXCEPT that I find that they blowout much easier than a disposable insert covered in cloth. :)

[Reply]

Sindi - This may sound rude, but this is a genuine question: Why use disposable inserts instead of disposable diapers?

[Reply]

Traci - Great post! I am looking into GroVia because I like the idea of one size fits all. I used fuzzibunz for the first four months with terrible red marks on my little ones chunky thighs. Have you experienced anything like this with the GroVia? – We are currently using G’s.. and while I love the comfort for my baby and the flexibility of the hybrid… I just cant keep buying a new set when she needs the next size up. Any advice would be appreciated!

[Reply]

-shawna- - I never use the grovias & FB together, but I always washed them all the same way I do my FB. I also prefer liners to the sprayer! :) Good luck!

[Reply]

stacey - Hi, this post was so informative! I just got my set of grovias, and a small set if fuzzibunz… So my question is, did you wash these together (since they have different care instructions) and what was your method? I am EBFing at the moment and wasn’t planning to het a diaper sprayer until we add solids.

Thanks!!

Tiffany - GroVia now has fleece liners and a stay dry fleece soaker pad! yahooo!

Karen - In your review you said that gdiaper inserts are not biodegradable, when intact they are. Just wanted to clarify. http://www.gdiapers.com/environmentally-friendly-diapers/gdiapering Thanks for the review! Also gdiaper covers are pretty great for travel too :)

[Reply]

L - Thanks for all the details. My due date is coming up and I’m trying to decide between cloth and disposable diapers. I’m now considering the Grovia cloth and love the idea of using a cloth insert, but a flushable liner. Do you know if you can easily use a flushable liner with the Grovia cloth insert? Thank!!

Jenny - This may seem like a strange question, but is it possible to use Fuzzibunz inserts with GroVia shells? At home we use Fuzzibunz, but we’re about to go on a 3-week trip to Spain and I’m trying to figure out how we’ll do diapering. I have exactly 6 GroVia shells and inserts, and I don’t really feel like buying a bunch of new inserts since the Fuzzibunz are our daily diaper… Any advice would be much appreciated! Ideally, we could travel with our GroVia shells & inserts, Fuzzibunz inserts, and GroVia biosoakers…

[Reply]

Jennifer - I am going to buy the GroVia for traveling after reading your review. I first stumbled upon your blog after viewing your video about how to deal with poop in FB diapers. I was deciding what to go with since I would be CDing with my second son. He is now 10 weeks old and I love love love my FuzziBunz. I went to visit my sister this weekend and just took some disposables I had left before I started CDing. But I missed my cloth diapers. Since your reviews were a major factor in my choosing FB as my main diaper, I will also take the leap with grovia as a travel diaper. Thanks!

[Reply]

Megan - If you found grovia diapers first would you still use the fbz? We are 10 weeks from our due date and we currently have 6 fbz but I can see the benefit from these with both the disposable option and the cotton inserts and don’t know if we should try just the insert with our fbz or buy some grovias…

Calla - Do you know how many times I’ve read this post?? A MILLION! We travel to see family and I cringe when I have to buy disposables..yuck! Going to get the GroVia liners to put in my FuzziBunzs for my 7mth old. Goodbye diaper aisle!:-D

[Reply]

-shawna- - CDing is the EASIEST while BFing!!! My # is 22. I love having that many. I didn’t need anything else until I flew on a plane to travel. I’d start there.

[Reply]

-shawna- - I have not had that problem! But I stuck them to the fleece on my fuzzibunz.

[Reply]

-shawna- - I never did, but I will be soon. I started at 9 weeks. I’ll let you know all about it! I don’t think it’d be too much, but I love CDs!

[Reply]

-shawna- - my personal advice based on my experience is skip pullups. We went straight from CDs to undies & she was trained in a day. :)

[Reply]

-shawna- - Interesting!! The shells are pretty sturdy & I would bet, especially with an itty bitty babe, that they’d be just fine without using the sticky tabs. But no, I have not had a problem with the residue! Like you said, we used them for such a short time. & I am afraid I can’t test anything right now, as we are just about done with diapers! :) Will be thinking of you Friday!

[Reply]

Lilliana - Hi Shawna. I just read this post again because I am struggling with a travel option for baby #2 since we’ll be using the cloth diapers from birth this time. I’d like to add that I just visited the Gro-via website and found this as the instructions for use:
Use: Simply lay/spread your BioSoaker® in your GroVia® Shell or favorite diaper cover and fasten on baby. Use sticky tabs to adhere to cotton underwear as trainers!

It seems that the sticky tabs are not supposed to be used to secure the insert to the shell. I mention it because I have read MANY complaints that the tabs leave a sticky mess behind. Of course this does not seem to have been the case for you but wonder if it was due to limited use. That said I wonder if you’d like them as much if you used them without sticking them to the cover. If I had a little one in diapers I think I’d try the GroVia inserts in GroVia shells without the tabs, the Flip inserts in both shells and then see which you liked best. I bought some GV shells based on your review and have yet to buy the disposable liners BUT opinions on both brands run the spectrum and I can’t deciede. Some say Gv isn’t absorbent enough, others say they leave gel beads all-over… of course as for the Flips many say you have to use more than one for good absorbancy and some say that they bunch or are too long. I know you haven’t used the Flip inserts but would LOVE your thoughts if you can get your hands on some… maybe Go Baby Go could give you some to try out so you can keep the rest of us mommas well informed. Thanks for the great reviews by the way.

Sarah Nicole - I use Gro Via Hybrid A2 cloth diapers and I think they’re great! I use the cotton inserts, and yes, they take a while to dry. That’s the only downside so far. FYI, Gro Via makes a fleece Stay Dry booster pad, that should help wick away moister. I have yet to try these, but thought it should be noted.

Jocelyn S. - Shawna, may I pick your brain??? My little guy is ready to start using pull-ups. I’ve never CDed before, but I figure its never too late to start, right? It sounds like the Gro Via could be a good option for us to try? Are there any other brands/combos you know of that are super good being pulled up and down by a two year old???

PS I would have been CDing years ago if I’d had you blog to learn from!

[Reply]

Sara - Shawna- I know you said that the grovia could get small enough for a newborn, but do you think the bulk may be a little much? Any thoughts on diapering a newborn?

Joy - Fabulous post! I appreciate your detailed review of the CDs and your experiments. The photos and videos were extremely helpful as well–hope to see more videos in future posts. I promised myself I wouldn’t buy anymore CDs(I’m a bit addicted)but I’ll definitely keep the Gro Via system in mind if my current system(FBs and BGs)stops working for us and/or we begin to travel with my little one. Thanks again!

Wendy - Awesome post! Now I want to CD but no baby to CD..

Emily W. - Thanks for the information! We are going on vacation this summer and were pondering a hybrid system so we don’t have to take our stash of fuzzibunz!
@ali deal and Courtney – I have a 6 week old and we started using Fuzzibunz with him when our disposables from the hospital ran out (he was less than 1 week old). The one size diapers are a tad bulky, but have fit him without leaking the whole time. We change him if we notice that he has gone to the bathroom and/or after each feeding. We typically end up changing a diaper every 1-3 hours depending on napping. I have never woken him up from a nap to change him. Using cloth diapers while breast feeding is probably the easiest time to use them since their poo is water soluble and doesn’t have a strong odor. We use a diaper sprayer to rinse out the diapers before we wash them and then wash as directed!

[Reply]

Angela V - Just wanted to mention that I have actually heard/read multiple times that the sticky tabs on the back of the Grovia disposable insert are not to be used with diaper covers. They are for using in underwear when you are potty training. Otherwise, it is hard to get the sticky residue off of your diaper cover. Have you had a problem with this??

Also, I tried both the Flip and Grovia disposable inserts when we were on vacation without laundry access. I used the covers that I already owned, which are Proraps. I had a heavy wetting son and found that he would saturate the front of the Grovia insert and once it was saturated it would basically bead up on the waterproof side and leak out the cover. The back part of the insert (near his bottom) stayed dry, however. This was very dissapointing. Since it had the waterproof backing, there was no way I could fold it to add more absorbancy in the front, nor could I stack them on top of eachother to add absorbancy. I ended up using a Flip insert on top of a Grovia insert and this gave me the absorbancy I needed. I even had to use a couple of Flip inserts on top of the Grovia for nap and night. Just my experience. This might be different due to having a boy. BTW, love your pics!

ali deal - this is so helpful! im delivering in 8 weeks and i am trying to take this all in. all of my friends tell me NOT to do cloth diapering while breastfeeding. i really want to. im wanting to start immediately with cloth diapering…so this encourages me!!!! if yall were starting from the beginning…what would be an ideal set up to begin with? like how many fuzibunz and grovias and inserts….and where do yall buy them? im about to start building my collection! – ali (browneyedblogg.blogspot.com)

[Reply]

Ash Leppek - Great post!! Just a couple things I wanted to comment on….I work at a cloth diaper boutique where we sell both Fuzzibunz and GroVia among lots of other dipes. I’m obsessed with the GroVia and one thing I wanted to point out is that I don’t think it is necessary to pre-wash the Organic Cotton Soakers separately from the rest of your dipes. I have washed 6 of them (2 per load because of how I bought them) with mine and have had no issues with my other dipes repelling. Normally the only type of natural fiber that needs to be washed separately is Hemp because of the natural oils it has in it. Cotton though, I have not heard is necessary. They do however get more absorbent the more you wash them just like you said.
The other thing is I have heard that if you use a diaper shell as a Swim Diaper that you should basically make it a Swim Diaper only (if in Chlorine) because Chlorine can break down the PUL of the diaper.
Thanks again for the great post!

Heather - Great review! I really appreciated the pictures. I’ve been wondering about the GroVia. The FLIP fits my chubby little fella really well, so it was very helpful to see how the FLIP compared to the GroVia in size/pattern.
Thanks!

[Reply]

Tiffany M - I use the Gro-Via/ Gro-Baby cloth diapers and I love them!! I am thinking about converting mine to all snaps! But I was just thinking about when you said the Hybrid liner wasn’t flushable?! For the Gro-baby style disposable you can tear it open and flush the insides and throw the outer section away (even though its easier just to throw it all away lol!) I just wanted to see if the maybe changed them?! I have not had to buy new disposable liners because I received 3 50ct boxes when I won a bid on ebay! Thank you! And great blog by the way!!If I didn’t have such a large stash of gro-via diapers I would totally try different ones! =D I started my now 7 and a half month old when he was 2 weeks old he was only 7 lbs and the fit him just fine because you can over lap the tabs even more when they are the the hook in loop or velco closure!

[Reply]

Janice Roodsari - Great post! I am a huge GroVia fan but have yet to try the disposable inserts. I was a gDiaper convert and still had plenty gDiaper disposable inserts and was using those with the GroVia while traveling. I had never seen the GroVia inserts until this post and I am amazed at the difference! Love that they have a sticky back and that they have leg gussets. WOW. Great job momma!
I have a few CD reviews on my site as well. http://mommawords.com/

[Reply]

Erin W. - Wow! Great post! I can tell lots of work and time went into this! So glad you like the Grovias and that they are working so well for you! Since I don’t have time to blog, I send your FB post to friends who are interested in CDing, and now I will send this one as well, because these are my two go-to brands as well. Good job!!

[Reply]

-shawna- - @courtney–I started at 10wks, but will start immediately next time. I think a FuzziBunz One Size + smaller insert would be fine, but I know GroVia does offer a newborn size if you are concerned. You could always buy newborn shells & disposable inserts! I went through a dozen disposable diapers a day easily & did use the pampers swaddlers that they sent me home from the hospital with. I can tell you that I will never use them again & will start CDing in the hospital next time. As for when to change, you can definitely feel, but it takes a little while to know what a wet diaper feels like. We just had a great & steady routine, which you’ll have once you have your baby & changed her at regular intervals unless we saw & heard her poop–which you will!. :) With CDs, I never hesitated to change her often, because it cost me nothing extra & I loved how soft they were. PLUS, breastmilk poop is just about the easiest thing to wash because it is water soluble. I would make your case to mamas who have cloth diapered a newborn, because you will not find the support you are looking for from mom’s who do not have experience with anything but disposables!

[Reply]

-shawna- - @Denae–you sure could, but one of my major problems with the flip was the fit. :)

[Reply]

Courtney - Shawna- What age did you start using cloth diapers on Caroline? My little one hasn’t arrived yet, but I was trying to make the case for cloth diapers to a few friends who have newborns. Their argument was that newborns “definitely wouldn’t fit in a one size diaper”, and also that apparently during the first 3 months, you are supposed to change the baby almost immediately after the go to the bathroom to protect their sensitive skin. They said there wouldn’t be a way to tell with cloth if they had gone, but the newborn swaddlers have a strip that tells you… Thoughts??

[Reply]

Denae - Have you ever thought about the GroVia inserts in the Flip diaper? I have heard that is a popular combination. It might be a good option for those who like the wider fit of the Flip.
