Learning About Cloth Diaper Choices

Parents use cloth diapers for various reasons. And you know what? There isn’t only one right reason. So whether you’ve chosen cloth diapers to save money or to be more environmentally friendly (or even if you’re undecided), the first step to cloth diapering is learning cloth diaper terms and the basics of buying reusable cloth diapers.

Cloth Diaper Choices

Navigating through the different cloth diapering systems can be overwhelming for some. But like using our cloth diapers, we make finding the best cloth diapers for your family as simple as 1-2-3.

Cloth Diaper Absorbency Layers

Every cloth diaper buying guide should start with the basics of absorbency levels. It is the hardest-working diaper layer, after all.

There are numerous material options like bamboo, organic cotton, fleece, wool, and more. Some fabrics are used alone, while some can be used together. The absorbency levels of these materials range from low to high, making some great for everyday use and others better for naps and bedtime. Cloth diaper absorbency options also vary by care, use, layers needed, whether they have to be prepped, and price.

Here at GroVia, we offer four types of absorbency layers:

  1. Organic Cotton Soaker Pads

  2. No-Prep Soakers

  3. BioSoaker

  4. Prefolds

The GroVia Hybrid Cloth Diaper is an all-in-two style made of a waterproof shell and your choice of a cloth reusable or disposable inner absorbency layer. The hybrid system is one of our easiest and most flexible systems. Hybrid cloth diapers work for daytime, daycare, traveling, and overnight needs.

If you want simplicity and convenience above all else, AIOs are for you. They’re just as easy to use as disposables—there’s nothing to stuff or fold—so a cloth diaper reluctant, like a babysitter, should also appreciate these organic, one-piece cloth diapers. With the trim design and stretchy sides, you can easily use our All In One Cloth Diapers.

We also have Newborn All In Ones. With a quick-dry, sewn-in soaker and absorbent, soft material, this type of newborn cloth diaper is sized and designed for parents and their newest additions.

The GroVia O.N.E. Cloth Diaper is a generously sized, one-size cloth diaper that you can custom fit from infancy to toddlerhood. O.N.E. comes with both a hook and loop and snap closure option, so you get to choose what works best for you and your baby. And it gets better. With our modular soaker system that includes a small and a large soaker, even a heavy overnight wetter won’t wake up because of diaper leaks.

Diapering is a personal experience. There are as many opinions and judgments as there are diapering products. But at the end of the day, the choice is yours to make.
