  • GroVia AIO Wins MACT Award

    MACT Award"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."

  • Gro Baby Diapers - Review

    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.

  • MT Pioneer Interview with GroVia founder


    Montana's Small Business Person of the Year
    Natural Baby Entrepreneur Tells Us How She Did It


    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

  • Women Entrepreneur "The Right Way to Rebrand"

    You can't just flip a switch. The Natural Baby Company discovered firsthand that rebranding is an intensive process.

    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

  • Boutique Café GroVia Review and Giveaway

    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!

  • The Girl Is A Mom - GroVia Review and Giveaway!

    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

  • Babble Reports - GroVia Rebrand!


    You heard right: Buh-bye Gro Baby — oh how we loved you. But wait, what’s that? A newer, better version of the well-loved, one-size cloth diapering system just launched under their new name, GroVia.

    It’s the same great design as Gro Baby — which grows with your child and snaps together without stuffing or doublers – except for a few noticeable differences: There’s a better selection of shell colors and patterns (more light and summery!), and the organic cotton inner is so much softer. I haven’t tested its absorbency to its full capacity, seeing that it takes a good 10 washes to really be at its best, but you won’t ever want to use a disposable diaper after feeling this cloth pad. And like the Gro Baby system, GroVia offers their similar BioSoaker pads as a more convenient, eco-friendly option.

    Don’t worry, Gro Baby users. All of your current shells and pads are interchangeable with the new GroVia system. Consequently, The Natural Baby Company is having a big sale on their Gro Baby inventory!

    After trying a few different cloth and hybrid systems, Gro Baby was my personal choice for everyday wear (convenient, absorbent and cost-effective), so I can personally vouch for the design’s performance.

  • Huffington Post on Eco Etiquette

    My husband has been fine with the green changes I've made in our household. He doesn't complain about composting, taking canvas bags to the grocery store, or even the vegetarian dinners I make. But we're expecting our first child, and he's drawn the line at cloth diapers. He says it's too inconvenient. How can I change his mind?


    Well, for starters, the cloth diaper argument couldn't be more timely: Last week, I wrote about how the BP oil disaster is compelling Americans to consider new ways to reduce their oil footprint; more specifically, by reducing the amount of petroleum-based products they buy. Continue reading

  • GroVia Heads to Hollywood

    With a new brand and a new look, GroVia Visits the California Sunshine to Celebrate with Hollywood’s Hottest Celebrity Parents

    To kick start our recent rebrand, GroVia (previously known as Gro Baby) traveled west this May to celebrate with Hollywood’s top celebrity parents and parents-to-be. With the mission of educating parenting influencers on the benefits of cloth diapering, GroVia toted tons of product, prizes and vital knowledge to two great events in Los Angeles – the Pregnancy Awareness Month (PAM) Kick-Off Event on May 2nd, followed by the celebrity-filled Dog & Baby Buffet Mother’s Day Event on May 7th -8th.

    GroVia brought the sunshine with them to the PAM Kick-Off Event held at TreePeople in the hills of Los Angeles. Creed opened the event with great music, top parenting influencers like Ricki Lake and Dr. Alan Greene spoke to the benefits of natural parenting, and celebrity parents mingled with GroVia – many learning for the first time why GroVia diapers (and cloth diapers in general), are better for baby, our planet and our checkbooks. Celebrities like Danica McKellar (Winnie, The Wonder Years), Kaitlin Olson and husband Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), and supermodel/entrepreneur Josie Maran, all stopped by the GroVia booth to learn about our new brand, products and the ins-and-outs of cloth diapering. Danica McKellar was so surprised to learn about what a difference cloth diapering can make on baby and our planet – she left with a bag full of product and plans to use GroVia on her baby-to-be, due this Fall!

    Red-Hot Eco Moms

    It's only natural to want to make the world a better place for your child. These 8 women did something about it — from designing eco-friendly diapers to creating an environmentally safe, completely ingestible toy cleaner.

    THE CHALLENGE Find a convenient alternative to disposable diapers — a major household contributor to landfills.

    THE EARTH-FRIENDLY SOLUTION A hybrid cloth and disposable diaper system.

    When Kim Ormsby had her first baby nine years ago, she balked at the idea of using cloth diapers. Who needed more laundry to do? But after six months of going through about 10 disposables a day, she tried cloth. Turns out they weren't bulky and didn't require pins, like the ones from her childhood. The extra laundry was manageable, Kim was saving money, and she was glad not to add more trash to local landfills.

    Recognizing all the benefits, including environmental and financial, Kim was sure other parents would be interested in becoming cloth converts. So when she was laid off from her engineering job after 9/11, she saw her freedom as the chance to turn her inspiration into reality. She used her credit card's $15,000 limit to set up an online cloth diaper business. She developed a customer base, which spread the word, and in 2006, her husband quit his job to help secure loans and create the company, complete with a retail store, a corporate office, and a name: The Natural Baby Co.

    Cloth was still a hard sell to parents who liked the idea of being eco-conscious but preferred the convenience of disposables. So in 2009, with help from a designer, Kim launched the Gro Baby system, featuring a waterproof outer shell that gives parents the option of attaching a cloth insert or an eco-friendly disposable one; the shell can be used up to four times before needing to be washed. The system, now called GroVia, is sold at hundreds of retailers, including Whole Foods and Costco. An organic cloth set costs $25; a box of 50 biodegradable disposables is $20. "What's great," Kim says, "is that instead of washing cloth diapers after each use, you usually only have to wash the insert, so your laundry loads are lighter. That means using less water, detergent, and energy."

  • Cloth diaper week: This ain't your mama's cloth diaper

     Pregnancy and Newborn Cover

    When I tell people I use cloth diapers on my son, they typically get this look on their face like I’ve just told them I do brain surgery in my basement. Cloth diapering isn’t what it used to be—gone are the days of diaper pins and rubber pants. Today’s cloth diapers are easy to use, easy to clean, and oh-so-adorable.

    My newest love is the hybrid diapers by GroBaby. These diapers are so unique and easy to use, even on the go. They come in a variety of adorable prints and have easy snap-in inserts. I also love that they have a biodegradable insert option that is great for babysitters or to use when you’re not at home.

    GroBaby diapers come in only one size, which for all you cloth diapering newbies means that they have easy to adjust snaps so they’ll fit your baby as both an infant and a toddler. In fact, they fit most children from newborn all the way up to their potty days. If you’re thinking about giving GroBaby a try, I recommend their GroBaby Experience Package. It includes two shells, two organic soaker pads, and two organic boosters. I would also recommend picking up a pack of GroBaby Bio Soaker Pads for using while you are out and about. You’ll be surprised by how easy cloth diapering actually is!

  • 8,000 diapers or 12 Gro Baby diapers?

    Did you know that the average newborn can speed through 12 diapers a day! Older babies and toddlers typically use about 6-10 diapers a day. If your baby is out of diapers entirely by the time she’s two and a half years old (many aren’t) that’s still about 7,500-8,000 disposable diapers over those 2.5 years. Imagine if your baby is in diapers longer.

    When you think about it in terms of sheer numbers, cloth diapering makes so much more sense. Cloth diapering is not like days of past either. Forget sharp pins and messy leaks. Today’s cloth diapers are highly sophisticated.
