Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

I just washed a few of my Alvas for the second time and one completely delaminated. So quality doesn't seem that good...

1 of my 18 has delaminated, but it has been a few months of having them.

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

the dg ones and minky outers are bigger than the solids and prints (dgs being the biggest). I can use the dg and minkys on my almost 40lb 4.5yo!

the regulars do leave red marks on my ds though. He is well w/in the weight range too.

Yes it IS so confusing!!

there is is thread on here somewhere which lists all the various styles according to their numbers and lots. If you do a search you may find it, or start a thread asking for it b/f you buy b/c I found the sizing irregular.

They have an excellent warranty. Just email them, send a picture of the delamination, and they will send you a new one.

here's a link to their warranty:
http://www.alvababy.com/page.html?id=67 scroll down a bit for their lifetime warranty info.

fwiw, I have never had any of my alvas delaminate and I have a few that have been in us for almost 2 years. I'm not an expert on them though as I primarily use FB and BG. They are washed on hot and dried in a dryer.

Thanks, but I really don't care for them, so I'm not sure if I really want it replaced

Re: Alvas - yea or nay?

It appears that Alva Baby copied Fuzzi Bunz's warranty clauses. They even left in "Perfect Size" in one of the sections.
