I was really excited to open the GroVia® All In One. I LOVED the print, and the construction felt wonderful – soft, squishy interior and smooth, rugged exterior. The inserts can be unsnapped for reduced bulk in the smaller size, and because they are not stitched together the diaper dries very quickly.
This style of diaper is a side-snapping diaper, which many people prefer for fitting their little ones. In trying it on my 20lb one-year-old, I felt like it was a little small. Usually I can fit a one-size diaper on her closed to the smallest setting, but this one had to be way out to the edge of the snaps. Obviously this is fine, since it is made to do that, it just made me a little anxious about coverage with the narrow sides.
Also it seemed like the crotch area was really narrow. In wearing the diaper, the inserts seemed to get bunched into the crotch which would fold and bulge. I was a bit anxious about how the bulge caused the leg holes to gap. Thankfully Baby didn’t poop, and usually her poops are solid, so it probably wouldn’t have leaked.
Overall the fit was fine and the baby seemed comfortable despite the bunching insert. The back fit snugly and the absorbency was great, and after washing the diaper retained its softness. In conclusion I would say this diaper is very well made and very cute. I am not personally a fan of the side-snapping style, but I think it would be fine on a smaller baby, especially a very thin baby.
Have you tried the GroVia® All In One? Be sure to post a review!
Believe it or not I attended the ABC Kids Expo and met cloth diaper manufacturers for the first time since I launched Diaper Pin over 13 years ago. Having a full time job outside of Diaper Pin made it difficult for me to do until this year – I was excited to meet these great talented business women and business men that I had corresponded with for years.
What a tiring and exciting two days I had! ABC Kids Expo is a huge show for all kids products so I was a bit glad that I was focusing just on cloth diapers (there SO many to see!)
Anyway here is the latest in the cloth diapering world!
Applecheeks – They unveiled their Limited Edition Steel Me diaper at Vegas.

They also released new prints Ella, Juliet, Emerson and Superhero.

I had never been a fan of AIO or All-In-One diapers in the past. Every one I tried, it seemed, was too thick and took a very long time to dry. Not the case with the bumGenius Freetime. This diaper certainly lives up to its name – it is pure GENIUS! The construction of this diaper is brilliant, and will definitely give more free time to the user, as the name implies.
So what is the difference, you may be asking yourself. Of course bumGenius (BG) is famous for their durable pockets and the more recent organic Elemental. The FreeTime is a new offering with a “no-stuff” insert system. The inserts, made of microfiber for maximum absorbency, are attached on alternate sides to lay across one another, creating an AIO that dries in the same time as a prefold. Genius!!! I’m pretty sure this diaper could convince any anti-cloth die-hard of the error of their ways.

I want to start out my review of the new BumGenius Elemental by disclosing that I am a stout fan of the old-style BumGenius Elemental (aka BGE). With the old-style BGE making up over half of my stash, I was both incredibly excited and hesitant about the new changes. Here is the breakdown of the changes and how they affect the function of the diaper.
Left is the old-style BGE, right is the new-style BGE
1. Large Cut
The new BGE cut is wider and has a longer rise than the old BGE. This doesn’t seem to cause a problem in my 22 month-old, but I could see where this may cause bunching or gathering for an infant. The rise has increased as well to accommodate larger children/toddlers, but this may compromise how early on the diaper can be used with an infant.
Even with the increase in rise, I like that the diaper sits below the navel. There is some material droop at the crotch due to increase width of the diaper.
2. The Inside
The old-style BGEs had an organic cotton lining under the organic cotton attached inserts. The new-style BGE has the same two organic attached inserts, but without the lining. This exposes the PUL like a diaper cover. There is an area behind the attached inserts to add an insert (extra insert sold separately) to cover the PUL and to add absorbency. With the lining removed, this does make the diaper trimmer and dry slightly faster. It also fixes the problem of holes that developed in the lining of the old-style BGE. Some children do have sensitivities to exposed PUL so buying the extra insert would be required if this were the case.
The elastic was changed from rolled elastic to encased elastic. This is a great change for anyone needing to replace the elastic in these diapers to extend the life of the diaper, definitely an added benefit.
Putting the new Elemental to the test
In the beginning, I had problems with leaking when using the new BGE. I prepped the diaper with 3 hot washes before use. I contacted CottonBabies who stated I should prep at least 3 more washes before use. Even after I prepped the additional 3 times, then 3 more, I realized the leaking was caused by the volume of urine put out by a toddler at one time. The PUL would become wet and leak through. After I added a standard infant prefold to the area behind the attached inserts, this was no longer a problem. I do believe the absorbency has decreased from the old-style BGE, which may not be seen as a problem during infancy.
The trimness of the new BGE is nice, even with an added insert for absorbency. These diapers are great for trimness! The absorbency was sufficient for two-three hour stretches once I added the extra insert.
I really like BumGenius Elemental diapers. Comparing old-style and new-style was a difficult task because both are great diapers in different ways. I like that the new-style Elemental will not develop holes in the lining and will fit longer, but I do desire the extra absorbency of the old-style Elemental without adding more to the diaper. CottonBabies produces great products that fit wonderfully, and trying to improve an already great diaper is a hard task!
I love the trimness, we can get our blue jeans over this diaper with ease and comfort.
