"Birthday Blessings Bash" Gro Via AIO review and $22.95 GC #GIVEAWAY {Baby Belle Bottoms}

Today I'm bringing you a review of the Gro Via one size all in one (AIO) cloth diaper, courtesy of Baby Belle Bottoms! The Gro Via os AIO is a very nice diaper and I will tell you why...
This is what I received:

Here is some more information about this diaper (taken from Baby Belle Bottoms' website):
GroVia® Cloth All-In-Ones have a super absorbent, organic cotton inner with a soft layer of water resistant TPU outer. No stuffing, no doublers. No cover required. Fits most babies from 10-35+lbs.

We can special order newborn size AIOs ($14.95 ea) and additional colors or prints. Quantities over 12 receive a 10% discount and free shipping. Please allow approximately 7-10 days for delivery. Email or call to place Newborn AIO orders- additional colors and prints can be special ordered from this page.

What do you get when you combine ultra soft organic cotton with stretchy wings and a side snap design? The PERFECT diaper!!
•Stretchy tabs for a perfect fit
•No stuffing, no doublers
•Trim one size design that grows with baby
•No cover required
•Quick dry design

•Simply adjusts rise snaps as needed and fasten on baby.
•Use snap in soaker for older babies or heavy wetters.

GroVia® AIO Side Snap Tutorial

The stretch side panels and cotton inner make this an ideal first trainer!!
•Diaper Inner: 80% Organic Cotton Soaker Pad with Cotton Lining
•Diaper Outer: Water Resistant TPU
•Made fairly & conscientiously in China

What will I need to purchase if I use this system full-time?

4-8 GroVia Shells and about 24 GroVia Soaker Pads or other absorbent cloth diaper or insert.

Estimated cost* of this system from birth to potty training:
$318* for 6 shells and 24 pads. *(Consider that the cost of disposables is $1000-$2500 more, and that most cloth diaper systems can be re-used on a second child!)

What will I need to purchase if I use this system full-time?

18-24 GroVia AIOs if you start cloth diapering at 10lbs. The GroVia Hybrid system (Shell+Soaker Pad) is more like a one-size diaper starting at 8lbs. We can special order GroVia Newborn AIOs and can quote you a great price for 12 or more. Email or call us.

Estimated cost* of this system from birth to potty training:
$504* for 24. You will probably need to purchase newborn size cloth or disposable diapers to use for the first month or 2, which will cost $200 more or less. *(Consider that the cost of disposables is $1000-$2500 more, and that most cloth diaper systems can be re-used on a second child!)

GroVia Washing Instructions:

Diaper Preparation
(This is an important step…don’t skip it!!)
Wash warm with detergent and tumble dry, repeating this process 5–6 times before use (they will continue to gain absorbency with more washing).

•Remove as much solid matter as possible.
•Place soiled diaper in a dry diaper pail – no soaking necessary.
•Wash every 2 days on warm with detergent.
•Tumble dry.
•Do NOT use bleach, enzyme cleaners or fabric softeners.

This is a one size diaper and it is intended to fit a baby from 10-35 lbs (so it won't fit a teeny tiny newborn, unless you have a 10 pounder)!
This diaper has one soaker pad that is sewn in to the backside of the diaper. It also comes with an additional, removable soaker pad so you can customize the absorbency of the diaper:
I really like this feature. Because if you are using this diaper on a tiny 10 lb baby, chances are you won't need the additional soaker, but when that baby gets a bit older and becomes more of a heavy wetter, you can add the additional soaker to customize it perfectly. You can also fold the soaker to the front (for a boy) where extra protection is needed!
Here is the smallest size setting on this diaper:
And absolutely largest setting:
This diaper fits my 2 yo/27 lb son perfectly!

Overall this is a great diaper.
I love that its a one size, and that you can customize the absorbency (kinda like a pocket diaper). Since this diaper is an all in one, it takes a bit longer to dry.
You can purchase this diaper from Baby Belle Bottoms for $22.95!
