Alva Baby or Sunbaby?

So trying to decide here. Alva baby or Sunbaby? I almost ordered Sunbaby diapers until I saw some posts on Alva Baby here. Seems like the verdict is Alva Baby fits bigger, but doesn't have as good customer service and their site is confusing. I guess all their diapers now have hip snaps...so that's not a concern, but I really still like the look of Sunbaby better and am worried I may not get what I order with Alva. My LO is huuuge, she has a long rise and chunky thighs and a lot of people say Sunbaby fits small. So which to go with? Has anyone compared the new versions of both side by side yet? I'd love to see some real comparisons or photos. Anyone?

Re: Alva Baby or Sunbaby?

I went with Alva Baby. They are on their way, so I can't tell you how they fit. My LO is big for his age (5 mo) and is in the 82% for weight and 79% for height, so I need something that has a bigger fit. I figure if they don't fit right, they are cheap and I'll sell them on craigslist.

Oh.. and I ordered off of ebay and made sure in the description of the ones I picked said 3.0, which are the ones with double row of snaps.

Alva. I have both, and fit wise for my chunker, I prefer the Alva. They are also bulletproof for us. Sunbaby fit more narrower in my opinion, and tend to wick faster. And, yep I have really good inserts for these too. I do love the prints from Sunbaby a lot more though.

You weren't kidding about the Alvas' website being confusing. Lord.
