Bozeman, MT: Diaper changing at its best ... to break a world record! Catch GroVia's attempt to break the world record on KBZK.com.
The Bottom Line - If you want to cloth diaper but find you need the convenience of disposables sometimes, Gro Baby diapers fit the bill.
Cons - Cost
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.

Then its time for you to check out GroVia products, which integrates modern technology into the entire baby-changing changing process as we know it, refining it via years of personal use and testing and taking environmental impact and natural goodness for your baby into account.
The centerpiece of GroVia's collection: the All-In-One diaper, which boasts stretchy tabs for a perfect fit with no stuffing or doublers. It has a trim, one-size design that grows with your baby, requires no cover and comes equipped with a quick-dry design.

When we launched Gro Baby, our modern cloth diaper line in April 2009, we had no idea how much it would transform our business model. We started The Natural Baby Company in 2005 with three product lines--WonderWraps, Pocket Change and DreamEze. Now our successful little company, with a mere 50-plus retailers, was about to experience a boom in business.
Within months of the Gro Baby launch, we had wholesale distributors on three continents and were supplying 500-plus retailers worldwide. It was abundantly clear that the Gro Baby brand name would outsell our other products, and it was starting to define our company. Customers and retailers no longer knew us by our company name, The Natural Baby Company. They knew us as Gro Baby.
In early January 2010, our team sat down and started strategizing. We asked ourselves some very simple questions: Who are we? Who are our customers? Where is our company going? Over the course of a few weeks, we took the time to brainstorm ideas, names and mission statements. We eventually decided to pick a single brand name that all of our products would be sold under. The name chosen was GroVia. Our brand mission: Simplifying the way parents nurture baby, naturally.The amount of work that goes into a rebrand is substantial, to say the least. Timing is so important, and scheduling and meeting deadlines are mind-boggling. Continue reading
Impending parenthood is a nerve-racking time. Decisions—big ones, little ones, life-changing ones
and even relatively insignificant ones (like what color to paint the nursery)—fill up your days and nights. Not sure where to start? Well, forget pink or blue—green is the way to go when it comes to getting ready for your little one. If you start from green, you can rest assured that your choices will be sound ones, which is why we asked Sue Brown and the staff of Satara Baby for some advice on her favorite organic baby gear options on the market today.
Sue, who's been in the green game for eight years, having bought her first brick-and-mortar (then called Home Environment) in Madison, Wis., in 2002 with her partner Tyrone Bell, and her staff are on a mission to educate all people on the benefits of eco-friendly products and empower them to make the right choices for themselves and the planet.
Here, Sue and the Satara Baby family give you their tips for the easiest ways to make your days with baby safer (and more stylish), naturally.
GroVia, by The Natural Baby Company, is the rebrand GroBaby and makes everything you need to go completely green when it comes to cloth diapers. I’ve been testing their Hybrid Shell and Soaker set (as well as their Cloth AIO, more to come later), and I love it. This diaper is truly different from everything else on the market. It’s beautifully made and has awesome design. A lot of thought went into this diaper and I definitely appreciate that! Plus, the cotton is buttery soft, organic, and impressively absorbent. I love that the soaker snaps out and is easily replaced with a new, fresh soaker. Or if you’re cloth diapering on the go, there’s also innovative BioSoakers, which stick right into your GroVia shell and can be composted, flushed or just plain thrown-out. I’ve rarely had to wash my shell due to the gathered edges and absorbency of the soaker and less laundry is also a plus. Although the initial price tag may seem a bit on the higher end of cloth diapering, remember that you can use one shell with at least 2 soakers (in my case 3+, but this all depends on your baby), which quickly brings down the cost of cloth diapering to the lower end. Score. The soaker does take longer to dry than some other cloth diapers, but as I’ve mentioned before, this just proves to me that the soaker will soak up a ton!
Once in a while you come across a diaper that is totally different from all of the others, GroVia from The Natural Baby Company is one of those diapers. Formerly known as the GroBaby with the rebranding comes some great new changes. GroVia aims to change the disposable diapering industry and make cloth diapering even easier for existing cloth diapering families, which is no small task.
Like most awesome cloth diaper companies, The Natural Baby Company was founded by a mom. Kim Ormsby started the business out of her laundry room, never realizing that her small ideas would revolutionize the industry. Since 2008, The Natural Baby Company has grown by introducing ultra useable and innovative products for natural parenting families. I was lucky enough to get one of the new GroVia All In 2 diapers for review. When I heard about the re-branding from GroBaby diapers to GroVia, I figured it was simply a name change but I was so wrong. GroVia made some marked and fabulous changes to their already great diapers.
I should start by saying that I was also lucky enough to pick up a GroBaby All In 2 diapers from the gently used section of my local diaper store, The Diaper Lab. Since we have had it the GroBaby has been on the top of my favorites list. I’m glad I got it because I was able to clearly see the improvements that were made when GroBaby became GroVia. So, let’s get on with talking about the fluff! Continue reading
