GroVia Hybrid Cloth Diapers are designed to make your life simple. The hybrid system is flexible to fit your morning, daycare, on-the-go and overnight needs, and it also works with reusable and disposable cloth diaper inserts. Choose from a range of soaker options that are all compatible with the same cover and easily attach to a soft, comfy waterproof outer shell.
Our hybrid system makes it easy to diaper your baby, everything from putting a cloth diaper on your baby to adding different types of absorbency and laundering your cloth diapers. And when your baby’s cloth diaper is wet, simply remove the Soaker Pad or disposable BioSoaker from the shell and replace it with a new one.
Choose from our three soaker options: Organic Cotton Soaker, No Prep Soaker or our eco-friendly disposable BioSoaker. While each have their own perks — one is naturally soft, one is long-lasting and one is great for on-the-go cloth diapering — all have exceptional absorbency and keep your baby and you covered wherever you go.
Choose from hook and loop or snap closures. Hybrid shells (a.k.a. diaper covers) can be worn 2-3 times before laundering again, which positively impacts both your wallet and the environment!
The hallmark of our hybrid design is simple flexibility. You may choose to stick with one type of soaker, or you may want to experience the full range of cloth diaper insert options. GroVia’s soaker options are designed with elasticized leg gussets and waterproof backing to contain messes. BioSoakers adhere to the shell with sticky tabs, while soaker pads snap in.
Why would you put a boring, white disposable diaper on your baby (and pay for it)? GroVia hybrid diaper shells aren’t just practical; they’re also available in an array of fun, funky, fashion-forward solid colors and prints that work for girls and boys. Each cloth diaper pattern is designed exclusively for GroVia by our creative in-house design team.
Whether you’re considering using cloth diapers for environmental or economic reasons, or both, the first step to jumping off the fence to the greener side of the grass of cloth diapering is learning the basics of cloth diaper use. The following are common questions new and on-the-fence parents have asked, and questions you probably have.
When you’re new to cloth diapering, you have to learn how to wash a cloth diaper. And while it does mean you’ll be doing extra loads of laundry each week, you’ll quickly learn it’s worth the extra laundry and that washing cloth diapers is actually easier than you think.
To wash a cloth diaper, you first want to dispose of “the solids.” Our cloth diaper liners make this simple! Other families find they can simply dump the solids into the toilet and flush. After that, laundering your cloth diapers is as simple as washing a load of towels! Choose warm or hot water and enough of your favorite good-cleaning detergent, and then turn on a heavy soil wash cycle.
Check out our Cloth Diaper Laundry Basics page to learn more about how to wash and dry cloth diapers.
For full-time diapering with our Hybrid cloth diaper system, you will spend approximately $450-600 to diaper for 2-3 years. Don’t let the upfront cost scare you—you will spend 5 times that amount buying traditional disposable diapers over 2 years! Think of what you could do with all that money you save.
Just as a newborn can easily go through several outfits a day, a newborn can also easily go through 12 cloth diapers in a day. So for full-time cloth diapering, we recommend a bare minimum of 12 shells and 24 soaker padsto get you started. And while the number of cloth diapers your baby goes through a day will lessen, we also recommend increasing those totals to 14-16 shells and 36-45 soaker pads within the first year. This helps spread out the wear and use of each, so your shells and soaker pads last longer.
