Grovia Review and Abby's Lane $15 GiftCard Giveaway!


I never understood why so many moms are obsessed with cloth diapers until I started using them..now I am addicted! We just recently switched to cloth diapers and I probably already tried 15 different kinds of cloth diapers, some I purchased some I've won, and some I reviewed.

When we decided to switched to cloth diapers 3 months ago, I was overwhelmed on what brand to get or type of cloth diapers. There are just too many. Since I did not know anyone that use them andI never personally seen one. I did not want to order online and not see them and pay for shipping. So I decided to use gDiapers. Unfortunately, I wish I took the chance on ordering online, because gDiapers did not work for us. Since trying out other All-In-Twos and pocket diapers, I honestly have not used our gDiapers.

But did you know not all online cloth diaper stores charge shipping? Abby's Lane offers free shipping in all their products! I really wish I've known about Abby's Lane sooner. There are times I want to order a diaper and I have to order the minimum to get free shipping, some are $50 and some $70! And many times I end up paying $5 to $7 for shipping!

Abby's Lane carries a lot of top brand diapers such as BumGenius, Happy Heinys, Tiny Tush, Blueberry, Rump A Rooz, Bummis and so much more! They even carry other top baby and mom brands such as Pedipeds, Babylegs, and Ergo. If you're looking for anything definitely check them out to get free shipping!

Abby's Lane was kind enough to let me try the Grovia All-In-Two. I have been wanting try this diaper for a while. After trying a lot of diapers, I've decided that AI2 is what work for us the best because I hand wash. Pockets are great and my husband prefer them but I like the fact that I don't have to hand wash that many pieces. If I use pocket diapers all day and use 12 diapers between Libby and Emma, that means I have to wash 24 pieces plus more if I use doubler. But if I use AI2, I will only have to wash 12 inserts and maybe 4 or 5 inserts!


I love this diaper!! This is Emma's first print diaper and it is beautiful! I love the color and the flower print. And it fits her really well. It looked a little bit small even in the large setting, so I was not sure it would fit Libby who's 37 pounds but it did. It also fit her very well! The rise is just a little below her belly button. This diaper is also very trim. It's not the trimmest diaper I own but it's definitely trim in my standard. Emma can wear her regular size pants and onesies and you probably will not even know she's wearing cloth diaper.

The GroVia Organic Cotton Soaker Pad is very soft and very absorbent. I love that they are organic. I was supposed to wash this diaper a few times before using it, but since I hand wash and hang dry, I could not wait a week to try it! Emma used it after one wash and it did not leak but I did made sure to change her after one pee. But now that it's been properly prepped, I have no problem with any leakage even after a couple of hours being used. However, I am not a huge fan with the soaker being two layers. It does make it faster to dry but I always have a hard time spraying it when it has poop. It kinda get messy. If you have a washer at home, then this should not be a problem. The insert also dries longer than most of my inserts.

The elastics in the legs are great. They are snug but yet gentle. They don't leave any red marks oh her thigh.

Overall, I like this diaper. However, I don't think I would want all my stash to be GroVia because I'm not a huge fan of the soaker. But I will definitely try to get some for traveling so I don't have to bring too many pocket diapers when going out and about. I just have to bring inserts and maybe a couple of covers.
