  • Deep-cleaning cloth diapers: what it is, what it isn't, and how to do it

    August 27, 2014

    So you may have read our post about ‘stripping’ cloth diapers; it’s where we first introduced our SUDS acronym to you:

    grovia_suds‘Stripping’ refers to removing an oily residue from the fibers of your cloth diapers, usually from the accidental use of fabric softener or a petroleum- or fish oil-based diaper ointment or cream. There are washing techniques—namely, the good, old-fashioned dishsoap-and-a-toothbrush scrub—that can be used to remove these oils.

    But. We’d like to make a distinction between stripping and deep-cleaning. Continue reading

  • Can Cloth Diapering Really Help With Potty Training?

    June 5, 2014

    2011_Dec_TNBC-28_smallSo what’s the deal with the claim that using cloth diapers during infancy can help a toddler potty-train more easily?

    It’s (mostly) true!

    Disposable diapers and some modern cloth diapers—including our GroVia Stay-Dry Soaker Pads—pull moisture away from the skin to keep babies comfortable after they have used their diapers. This can certainly have its advantages, and there’s a reason we offer Stay-Dry products! When my own babies are going to be in the car or in a busy situation, I like to use Stay-Dry Soaker Pads.

    But natural fibers like organic cotton don’t do this. When your baby uses his diaper, it feels wet.

    Why is this a good thing? Because your baby can learn, from a very early age, to connect the sensation of a full bladder to the soon-to-follow sensation of wetness in his diaper. And if this sensation is uncomfortable to him, he will cry, you will change him, and his preference for a dry bottom is reinforced. Guess what! Making that ‘potty-awareness’ connection is half the work of potty-learning right there! Continue reading

  • GroVia Customers Are Changing the World

    May 26, 2014


    The Founding Fathers would thank you...and so do we!

    Every week that goes by, GroVia cloth diaper users keep about 1 MILLION disposable diapers from going to landfills. That's a lot of diapers, and they add up fast. Since we launched our first GroVia Hybrid cloth diaper back in 2009, you have all combined to keep over 257 million disposable diapers from piling up in our environment. That's the equivalent of twelve Mount Rushmores...and counting.  THANK YOU!!!

    Want to share more inspiring and sometimes scary facts like this with friends and family?                                                                              --> See this, that, and the other thing!

    Want to learn more about how your family can help change the world?                                                                                                              --> Learn about our best-selling Hybrid or dad's-favorite All In One.

    Key assumptions used for the above calculations: 2 washes per week per diaper, 2.5 years until potty training, 21.92 used disposable diapers per cubic foot of trash, approximately 927,000 cubic feet in Mount Rushmore (we called park rangers to ask!)

  • Using Soaker Pads on the Newborn Setting

    March 17, 2014


    “If my Shell is on the newborn setting, can I use Soaker Pads?”

    This is a question that we see frequently from parents who are new to cloth diapers—and it’s a great one!

    An unprepped Soaker Pad looks gigantic; it really does. Once your Soaker Pads, which are made from absorbent natural fibers, are in the prepping process, you’ll watch them shriiiiiiink until, after about 10 washes, they reach their permanent size. This is true for all natural fiber cloth diapers.

  • ENOUGH with the "Stripping" Already

    February 18, 2014


    Our Customer Service department fields at least 5 "stripping" questions per day. The term, stripping, pops up daily on cloth diaper forums and manufacturer's Facebook walls. I've cloth diapered 5 babies (since 2003) and this term was nonexistent when I started cloth diapering.

    As pocket diapers and other polyester cloth diapers became popular, a new generation of washing instructions was marketed alongside these products. Washing instructions that told customers to use 1/2 (or less) of the recommended dose of detergent. The result: unclean diapers, ammonia issues, diaper rashes, and ultimately unusable cloth diapers. This was then followed by a whole host of "stripping" processes and customers who think that this is normal for cloth diapers. It isn't.

  • Return of the Hyena Diaper!!

    November 13, 2013

    Some of you may be wondering what the heck a "Hyena Diaper" is!  Well, let me give you a little history lesson.  If you recognize the words; Fussybutt, Honey Boy, Luxe Baby, or Fuzbaby you can skip this paragraph.  For the rest of you, the word Hyena in the cloth diaper world was used to describe us crazy moms who would sit glued to our computers, hitting F5...F5...F5... in hopes of scoring a piece of diaper art.  Yes, I said ART.  Diapers that were meticulously sewn by WAHMs (Work at Home Moms), made of the purest of materials, often hand dyed or appliqued, and packaged and delivered in a glorious box of fluffy goodness.  We Hyenas often crashed websites by our sheer numbers, which eventually led to the creation of Hyena Cart!

  • Cloth Diapers Making a Comeback

    November 13, 2013

    It's happening. Cloth diapers are experiencing a re-surging popularity and the revolution is catching thanks to increasing community resources, enthusiastic cloth diapering families and, more recently, airtime from mainstream news outlets. In fact, America Now News just featured a fantastic segment on cloth diapers that discusses the comeback of cloth diapers and why the new, modern version are becoming increasingly attractive to families everywhere. Much of the information for the segment was provided by Jack Be Natural, one of our favorite GroVia retailers. And we were thrilled to see that they chose to feature GroVia diapers several times throughout the show!

    The segment explores the different aspects of diapering that families consider when deciding between cloth and disposables, including the environmental, health, and cost impacts of each option. The feature is chock full of interesting facts and figures, so check it out to learn more about making the right decision for your family!

  • So you’ve heard the GroVia One-Size All-in-One doesn’t work for chubby-legged babies?

    November 2, 2013

    I'd like to ask you something.

    Do you think the baby on the left is chubby?


    Little Betsy is seven months old and closing in on 18 lbs. She’s in the fifth percentile for height… and the 75th for weight. Note the rolls and the chins. You kind of want to bite her, right? There’s no getting around it: my beautiful baby girl is fat. I've never had a baby this fat. I thought this level of roll-age was mythical.

    Would it surprise you to hear that Betsy wears GroVia One-Size All-in-Ones every day?

  • GroVia Bamboo Prefolds

    October 21, 2013

    GroVia Bamboo Prefolds have quickly become one of our top selling products. Why? They are absorbent, silky soft, and a very inexpensive way to add to your cloth diaper stash!

    We are often asked about sizing. Why don't you put a weight range on your prefolds? The answer is this: Weight ranges for prefolds just don't work. They vary too greatly depending on how the prefold is being used, trifolded or fastened. Most people simply trifold their GroVia prefolds in their GroVia Shells, so I've crafted today's post to focus solely on this. Continue reading

  • Cloth Diaper 101 Radio Show Features GroVia

    September 27, 2013

    ABC's of Surrogacy - Cloth Diaper 101 Radio ShowHere at GroVia, our ultimate goal is to get the word out about the benefits of cloth diapers. That's why we were excited to see a Cloth Diaper 101 feature on the ABC's of Surrogacy with Dawn Marmorstein. In this episode, Dawn interviews Sandy Soriano Barajas from organic diaper service Luludew. They discuss the benefits that cloth diapers offer, not only in terms of baby products that are green and environmentally friendly, but also cost effective as well.

    In the show, they also highlight their top three cloth diaper companies, and we were thrilled to see that GroVia made the list of one of Sandy's favorite brands. There is nothing better than being recommended by a fellow company in the cloth diapering space.

  • So Your Baby is "Out-Peeing" Their Newborn AIO...

    July 22, 2013

    They are cute and tiny, so how in the world do newborns pee so much?? Looks can be deceiving! Your newborn will nurse 8-12 times per DAY for the first month, and 7-9 times per DAY during the second month. Well, what goes in must go out, which means A LOT of very wet diapers during those first couple of months.

    The GroVia Newborn AIO was designed to be a nice trim diapering option for tiny newborns during those all-important newborn weeks. Most people will find that their newborn will start “out-peeing” their NB AIOs before they outgrow them. So what is a mama to do?

    North was 6lbs 14oz when born and started wearing his GroVia NB AIOs at 2 days old. At about 3 1/2 weeks of age (and 8lbs), I found that he was starting to leak out of his diaper at about 1 ½ hours. When I would take the diaper off of him, the entire inside was saturated and the excess urine was finding its way out at the leg. So, we started adding some absorbency to his AIOs and VOILA….problem solved! At 5 weeks old and 10lbs he is still happily wearing his GroVia Newborn AIOs, without leaks!! Continue reading

  • Gro Baby Diapers - About.com Review

    November 19, 2010


    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
    • One-size
    • 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.
