Re: First grovia and I am in love. Will these feelings continue?
These are awesome diapers and if you can afford a whole stash of them, go for it. After about 1 year, we had to use them with boosters. They stopped fitting DS at around 25lbs because of the booster.
Poop always gets on the cover, so I don't recommend a ton of extra inserts. Maybe a ratio of 3 inserts for every 2 covers or something like that.
If you have the hook and loop covers, you have to line dry them to make them last. I found that this wasn't an issue because of the nature of AI2 systems - you can still throw the soaker in the dryer.
I also love BGE and have a bunch of those, and I really like pocket diapers for night because they feel dry and baby sleeps better.
