GroVia Newborn AIO Review

GroVia Newborn AIO Review ~ Maman Loup's Den

I received this product at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.

If you’re a long-time follower of my blog, you know that GroVia was one of my very first cloth diapering loves. I was very happy to have one of Little Miss Cub’s very first newborn diapers be the Grovia Newborn All-in-One. Even without an umbilical snap down, she was able to wear it at the hospital. Look how scrawny she was!

Here’s a look at the GroVia’s Specs:

Even though the diaper doesn’t have an umbilical snap down, the rise is low enough and the waist soft enough to not interfere with the stump:

It didn’t take long for Little Miss to put on a bit of chub, but she has grown at a very average pace, clocking in at about the 50th percentile. Here’s a frown (I think she’s annoyed that she’s in the “newborn skin peeling” stage and I’m still taking pictures of her) and a glimpse at how the GroVia fit somewhere around the 7-8 lbs mark:



  And, here she is at around 10-11 lbs:

Things I like best about the GroVia Newborn All-in-One: 

  • User-friendly single row of waist snaps;
  • Hemp/cotton blend inner;
  • Stay-dry fleece;
  • Fits well at birth even without an umbilical snap down;
  • Quick to dry. 

Things I like less about the GroVia Newborn All-in-One: 

  • Definitely requires a booster past about 7 lbs, as we would get leaks with just one pee otherwise. (Very few of our newborn all in one diapers were absorbent enough without a booster. This one was not an exception.);
  • Lower upper weight limit (however, a great fit on the lower end of the scale), and it definitely isn’t going past the 12 lbs mark for us;
  • High price point considering each of your diapers would need a separate booster. 

Just in case you’re curious, here’s how the newborn compares to a GroVia shell on its smallest rise:

    I had one of these given to me to use with my little guy when he was born and although I loved the fit he began out peeing it quickly
