"GroVia™ All-In-One is currently our favorite All-In-One (AIO) One-Size cloth diaper. We have tried many different AIO’s and GroVia’s AIO is outperforming in design and convenience. This diaper is not only Mom Approved, but also Dad, Babysitter and Grandma approved!
My husband wasn’t overly excited about going cloth, but he converted willingly after he tried GroVia’s AIO only once. He’s usually picking GroVia’s AIO’s from the stack of cloth diapers, whenever he has to change our son. My mom was quite impressed with these as well, the last cloth diaper she saw was in the seventies and it was like going from B&W TV to 3D – a revolution! Our babysitter never tried AIO’s as well, so she was a bit hesitant at first, but now she’s actually telling all the other moms about ‘the perfect’ diaper."
The Bottom Line - If you want to cloth diaper but find you need the convenience of disposables sometimes, Gro Baby diapers fit the bill.
- Both cloth and disposable options
- Cute patterns
Cons - Cost
- Cotton Shell
- Shell and insert diaper
- Cloth and disposable
- Closes with Snaps
When I first heard about the Gro Baby diaper, I was skeptical. Usually a diaper is a good disposable or a good cloth diaper, but rarely both. I was happily surprised when Gro Baby was excellent at both. My first experience with the diaper was to take it on a trip. I used the disposable inserts, which took up much less room in our bag than taking traditional disposable diapers. The gusseted disposable inserts held in even a messy bowl movement and did not leak urine. The disposables held a lot of fluid, which I tested beyond the limits of my toddler’s bladder. One trick I learned was that when removing the disposable inserts you need to make sure none of the sticky-stuff stays in the snap, otherwise when you go to snap in a cloth liner, it will not snap in completely. After washing the reusable insert 5 times, I was impressed with it’s absorbency. I loved that the fact that it snapped in meant that it didn’t shift when my toddler walked around. Also, the gussets on the reusable insert held in all solid messes and kept the cover clean. The one-size aspect of the diaper means that you will get more out of your money in this diaper. If someone was looking for an awesome diaper that works well for travel and home, I would recommend the Gro Baby.

Montana's Small Business Person of the Year
Natural Baby Entrepreneur Tells Us How She Did It
BY PAT HILL
Kim Ormsby of Bozeman transformed a desire to take better care of her babies' backsides into a multi-million dollar business, one that has made her Montana's 2010 Small Business Person of the Year.
The award, given by the U.S. government's Small Business Administration, had Ormsby in Washington, D.C., the last week of May being honored for her unique brand of GroVia diapers and other baby care products. She calls her business The Natural Baby Company, selling her products from a Bozeman storefront and via the Internet—and business is booming.
“The award was certainly a surprise…” Ormsby told the Pioneer the day after she returned from her D.C. trip, “…nothing we had planned on. It's very nice to be recognized for our work, and we're thrilled.”
Ormsby's success is one of those stories that small business dreams are made of. But her path has had some unexpected twists along the way. Ormsby graduated from college in Jamestown, North Dakota, with a bachelors degree in biology. She was living in Denver, Colorado, with her name on a waiting list for attendance at Colorado State University's veterinarian school, when she had her first baby in 2000. She instead took a job with the telecommunications company Qwest, headquartered in Denver, and moved to Bozeman in 2001 to work for Qwest here. But when the telecommunications bubble burst that same year, tech stocks tumbled, and so did Ormsby's job with Qwest. She found herself unemployed, but still keeping busy as a mother, and diapers had already made their entrance into Ormsby's life. Continue reading
