Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

i'll try to remember to get some pics tomorrow. mine are all minky and are all adorable! i just got kawaii diapers too and the insert (both bamboo) is a little bit different than the alva. it's not as wide and feels a little thicker.

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

I have many alva ones.. they are my FAVORITE! I do not wash them on a different cycle than anythign else which is on HOT wash cold rinse.. have been doing it for months and no delamination. we also have the print posted in the first pic, i think its boyish too lol.. i have babyland and HATE the tabs (always have wing droop) compared to the alva

oh and i totally love their bamboo inserts, they are floppy and do take some getting used to but i LOVE them! They are what made me bite the bullet and start making my own bamboo inserts

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

Oh man! I LOVE you guys! I've been debating whether to buy some or not and now you have me convinced! I'm redoing my stash (little by little) but these will be nice addition. I have Sunbabys and they're good too. I missed the Alva co-op but I won't do it again! I'm ordering some now!

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

Okay, so here is my DS in the Pooh Bear Minky diaper TRIPLE stuffed for nighttime! LOL! I have no clue how absorbent these inserts are going to be, so I put 3 of the bamboo inserts in and we'll see how it goes!

I moved him up to the biggest rise setting because I stuffed it pretty full. I could still get it on him on the medium setting, but it looked more comfortable on him on the largest setting. I love that I have that bigger setting to move to! All his other OS diapers he is on the largest rise normally, so I love having a diaper that is bigger!

Re: LOOK AT HOW TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS!

I bought my diapers for baby boy on the way and they are preping now... but I'll get dd to test them out tomorrow and we'll get some pictures. I plan to stuff with prefolds, so I dont think mine will be as trim, maybe I need to try those bamboo inserts too!

I just wanted to say that I was the one who had the delaminated diaper. It was a bamboo lime dot diaper, but I have also been washing my minky Alvas on hot with no issues thus far (~10 washes). I think it could have just been that particular print but there is no way I can say whether or not this will happen to others, which is why I suggested avoiding hot.

Okay I know someone ask earlier about the minky wicking?

Ace wore one of her minky ones today for 3.5hours (we were out and i forgot a change) and it didn't wick. So I think I just put the insert in incorrectly the first time LOL.
