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.
