Natural Fiber All-in-One Cloth Diapers

There’s a reason why there are so many different options for cloth diapers: everyone has different favorites.  Our babies are shaped differently and have different outputs.  Rather than just expecting us all to use the same thing and like it, now we’re blessed with an overwhelming array of cloth diaper brands to choose from!  But even with different brands, there’s different styles, different fibers, etc.  If you’ve decided that you love the convenience of an all-in-one, but only want natural fibers touching your baby’s bum, then this is the post for you!  Here’s a break down of some natural fiber all-in-one cloth diapers.

Stash Shot Video (November 2014)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a stash video.  So here’s the update.  (Now it’s time for an epic destash!)

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum – GroVia Hybrid

Daily Cute Fluffy Bum - GroVia Hybrid (Cloth Diaper Addicts)One of my favorite things about cloth diapering has always been the ability to match fluff to the outfit.  I’m really enjoying Halloween because the diapers that I don’t usually pay attention to are getting some love!  In this pic, Eudora is wearing a GroVia hybrid in Mandarin.  Mandarin is a discontinued color, but there are still plenty of amazing (and Halloween friendly) colors in GroVia’s line up!

GroVia All-in-One diapers are available from these affiliates: Cozy Bums (Canada), Diaper Junction (US/Canada), Kelly’s Closet (US), Lagoon Baby (Canada), Nicki’s Diapers (US/Canada), Cloth Diaper Addicts Amazon Shoppe (US)

Meet the GroVia ONE!

While at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, Kim Ormsby unveiled the latest GroVia design: the GroVia ONE.  Here’s your tour of this beautiful new diaper!

New Limited Edition GroVia Prints!

It seems like these days, everyone is doing limited edition prints.  Yesterday morning, the brand new GroVia limited edition prints were announced.

Brand New GroVia Limited Edition Prints! Cloth Diaper AddictsSo what’s the deal with the Limited Edition GroVia prints?

The animal print is called “Wild Things” and the balloons in the clouds print is called “Up & Away.”  The prints are designed by Wee Gallery, a child’s art company that specializes in high contrast designs in order to be more visually and mentally stimulating to little people.

The limited edition GroVia prints be available for purchase on July 7, so they’ll theoretically be at all retailers who are carrying the product in both Canada and the United States.  I’m not sure what the price will be in Canada, but they’ll be more in the States: the limited edition GroVia prints are listed at $17.95 (versus $16.95 for the regular shells).  I imagine they’ll be a dollar or two more in Canada, too.

You’ll be able to buy the limited edition GroVia prints in hybrid only, though it will be available in both hook and loop and snap closures.  Sorry, folks, no newborn sizes or all-in-ones.  You’ll also find the prints available in the draw string wet bag and in the pail liner.

I’m completely in love with the Wild Things print and just might have to grab a cover for pics.  Which is your favorite?

You’ll be able to find the new limited edition GroVia prints at Cozy Bums!

Grey Cloth Diapers the New Brown?

Back in October, I noticed that most big name manufacturers have discontinued their brown diapers.  It seems that brown cloth diapers are going out of fashion, along with those brilliantly contrasty brown/pink and blue/pink combinations.  I’ve noticed what seems to be replacing all of that brown: grey cloth diapers.

Grey Cloth Diapers are the New Brown

Grey Cloth Diapers – Everywhere!

Grey cloth diapers are a fabulous neutral that will still coordinate with most things… particularly since grey has become a common accent color in children’s clothing.  Sometimes you’ll find them on patterned diapers, too.

Grey Cloth Diapers in Your Pocket

Because of the midway price point and ease, pocket cloth diapers are “the gateway drug” to cloth diapering.  There are a few brands of pockets that now have grey cloth diapers in their line up.

The AppleCheeks Steel Me diaper was out for six months as a limited edition, did beautifully well, and is now retired to make room for Riptide to join the AppleCheeks line up.  However, the AMP Pebble is still available and bumGenius Armadillo is now being shipped out to customers who pre-ordered from Cotton Babies.  (Hopefully that means that they’ll ship it to their retailers next week and it’ll be in my hot little hands two weeks after that.)

Grey Cloth Diapers as an All-in-Two

The newest grey cloth diaper to join the line up is the Best Bottom Dragonfly Ripple.  The green is an avocado color… and honestly, I really love this diaper because it reminds me of Oscar the Grouch.  The GroVia Cloud was the first grey cloth diaper to start the trend.  The Planet Wise Grey Chevron is a nice and perfect grey color combination with the nice yellow pop on the piping.

Have you added a grey cloth diaper to your stash?  Which is your favorite?

 

Recommending China Cheapies Makes Me Cringe

Without fail, I see people post frequently about wanting to start cloth diapers, but not being able to afford the “expensive brands” like bumGenius.  (Bonus points for seeing this come up on the Cotton Babies Flash Mob, where people are slightly rabid over their bumGenius diapers.)  Sometimes people will recommend ways to get cloth diapers without paying retail price.  Then there are the comments that make me cringe: I see people recommending China Cheapies.

Don’t get me wrong; it’s not about snobbishness and elitism.  I do have some China Cheapies in my stash.  However, when I’m speaking with people who are new to cloth diapers, I don’t feel comfortable recommending China Cheapies at all.  There are a few simple reasons for this. [Read more…]
