GroBaby or GroVia: What is the difference and which do I choose?

The Natural Baby Company in Bozeman, MT has re-branded their best-selling modern cloth diaper system:  GroBaby is now GroVia - a Diaper for Every Family. 

GREEN (new Biodiaper), GREENER (hybrid GroVia cloth shell and Biosoaker), GREENEST (GroVia Shell Set with Organic Cotton Snap-In soaker)


What does this mean to you?  SALE.

We love GroBaby so much that we bought out the manufacturer's remaining stock!  That is how confident we are in this product.  We have been using it for 15 months on our son.


GroBaby or GroVia: What is the difference and which do I choose during this transition period?

 

Things to Consider:
  • Age of baby
    • under 6 months, save a little money by purchasing the GroBaby Shells (1/2 inch smaller in the rise) and couple with the GroVia Soakers 
      • the new gussets on the GroVia soakers can contain the breast fed poop-plosions a little better.
      • over 6 months, save A LOT of money and buy GroBaby on clearance
      • Budget
        • GroBaby and GroVia are interchangeable - save a little money by mixing it up.
      • Size of baby
        • GroVia can accommodate a slightly larger build and/or older child with its extra 1/2 inch on the rise.
        • Velcro or Snap closure
          • GroVia comes with snap closures in solid colors (except Blackberry)
          • GroBaby is only aplix 
            • You can retrofit GroBaby covers to snaps by sending them to the manufacturer within the first 6 months for free.  Or for $3.50/shell thereafter.
              • We hope this helps a little.  Feel free to call us (707) 812-1BUM.

    1. I switched from gDiapers to Gro Baby when they went on sale. I only have about 10 covers and 8 soakers, but use the biosoakers more often than the cotton soakers. It took a little learning, but now I am in love. Gro Baby pretty much rocks my world! I like the idea though, that Gro Via shells have the tuck under tab for their "velcro" because my Gro Baby don't stay very secure in the wash. But, I wash them separately, so they don't ruin clothes! I think I'll give the Gro Via soakers a try too--I like the idea of the water proof backer... keeps shells cleaner longer! Thanks for the comparison Angela!

    The BumRite Diapers BLOG

    It started with reading The Diary of Anne Frank when I was 11 years old. I have 20 hand-written diaries locked in a safe in my basement. Now I am taking my musings on-line and semi-scripted to complement my cloth diaper website http://www.bumritediapers.com.
