GroVia All in One Review and Giveaway!

I have 2 GroVia AIO's, a package of GroVia wipes and Biowipes I'd love to give away (really I'd like to keep them but feel I need to share my GroVia love). See the bottom of this post for details on how to enter.

If you've been following this blog for a while I must apologize as I left you hanging quite a few posts back. When we first started out CD'ing we were happily trucking along with the AI2 for daytime but sadly we went disposable for nights due to leaking and my laziness (who really wants to do a complete bed change at 3 am?).

Eventually we found success with the Dream Eze an AIO CD made by The Natural Baby Company (GroVia's parent company as well). This was a great nighttime CD but it's one fatal flaw was that it was not a one size system and I had only ordered medium (oh, and did I mention the Dream Eze had been discontinued and that is why I got them uber cheap).

Recently, I was able to purchase GroVia's AIO which is a lot like the Dream Eze but with some great improvements. Stretchy sides for a more custom fit, more trim design so no more fluffy bum, an extra snap in soaker for older babies heavy wetters and overnight, and adjustable rise with a couple of snaps so it's really a one sized system. I was so excited to put one of these on Magnus. I liked my Dream Eze but was going to LOVE the new AIO.

I had prepped my AIO's 5 times (I had heard they didn't need as much prepping as the AI2's) and we were ready for our first night. So Magnus slept really well that night but woke up wet. The following night was a wet one as well. Argh, I was getting frustrated. We tried 2 different boosters and Jay and I both had a go at putting the AIO on Magnus(really it's not complicated but we both have different ideas on what a good fit looks like). In my frustration I reached out to the best GroVia support I could think of, their Facebook page. In no time I got some tips and advice but none of it seemed to help and I wasn't feeling the love for my new AIO. This was really disappointing me as I love GroVia (yes, I'm a bit of a junky) and really wanted these to work. Thankfully someone reached out (thanks Amanda) by sending me a personal message suggesting I try prepping some more. Really, I hadn't thought it might be a prepping issue but I gave it a try. I prepped twice more and guess what. No leaks for the past 3 nights. My little guy likes to nurse at night (often 2-3 times) and the AIO is now lasting 12 hours. I should mention that we use the snap in soaker and a GroVia stay dry booster.

So on with the giveaway already! To enter you can do any or all of the below and tell me what you did in the comments of this post:


*Post a comment or question about GroVia or GroVia product on their FB page

*Follow my blog

*Share the giveaway info on your FB page or blog

So that's 4 possible entries (if your following this blog already considered yourself entered). The winner will be drawn at random on October 16th/2010. This contest is open to Canadian and US residents and I will cover shipping. Thank you GroVia for supplying the fluffy giveaway prizes!

Feeling generous Mommy!

    ReplyDelete
  162. I just finished a local cloth diaper trial with the Grovia AIO's & out of the different brands and styles they were my favorite! I am hesitant to CD all the time because of the big tushy look, but the GroVia AIO's are trim enough to wear with pants or leggings! Ok, so I am pleading my case, but I will definitely LOVE and USE the diapers frequently if picked. ;)

    1. check
    2. check

    4. check

    All done and crossing my fingers!
