Grovia aio's

I absolutely love the swaddlebees simplex aio. I am thinking about trying the grovia aio. How do these compare. I don't know how I will like it and don't want to waste my money on something if I won't like it. Any opinions?

Re: Grovia aio's

I'll be watching this - I've only used the Ai2s and the newborns, neither of which worked very well for us for various reasons, but I'm on a ss diaper kick, and I wanted some for DH and the babysitter. So I just bought 6 from sellers on FSOT! Hope I like them too! pm me if you decide to get some - I am getting some NIP from a nice mama on here for a great deal and I think she has lots more....
I've never tried Swaddlebees...I wonder if I should.

Re: Grovia aio's

I haven't tried swaddlebees aio yet but I'm not a fan of the grovia aio I have. The side panels feel like swimsuit material, the elastic is way too tight and left giant gouges in DS's not super chubby thighs, and I don't like the giant snap that holds the booster to the soaker.

Re: Grovia aio's

I havn't tried swaddlebees. I do love my grovia aio, I have a few for the diaper bag, and they are aborbant, no leaks, fit great. My ds has worn they since he was 6m til now 14m with room to grow, I can put them on my 3yo as trainers,in a pinch. I do have long slim children. I am not sure how they would fit a chunkier babe, since they have a trim cut, imo.

Hated Swaddlebees and LOVE GroVia AIO's,they make up the bulk of my stash, they are super trim and absorbent. My guy is average sized (just 8 months and 19 lbs) and they fit him well.
