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! Continue reading

As a successful company we feel a moral responsibility to help others in need. Each year GroVia is pleased to donate thousands of dollars worth of product both in the United States and abroad.
Helping others is a core belief in our company and whether it is sewing lap blankets for residents of our local nursing home or sending thousands of diapers to flood victims, we are happy to contribute to those in need.
Last week, 3 pallets of GroVia BioDiapers and BioWipes landed in Boulder for the Boulder Disaster Asst. Center. We specifically chose to send our eco-friendly disposable products in this shipment as we knew many had lost their homes and had little to no facilities to wash cloth diapers.

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
