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

Oh, and I'm selling about half of my stash to fund my alva order. Once I get them, I may sell the rest of my stash but probably not.

I already have 2 alvas and 1 bamboo insert.....ordering 24 more alva pockets and 39 inserts. Now that I see that rock print IRL, I may HAVE to add 2 more pockets.

UPDATE: ordering 28 more pockets and 40+ bamboo inserts. My goal is to have enough to get through half a week before having to do diaper laundry so if we go on vacation to visit my family for a week I'll only need to wash once in the middle of the week.

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

You all are so funny about the rock print! I have several that I ordered that I don't really like in real life, including the jeans print and a bunch of solids. They are still sitting in the package- I think I'm going to sell them and buy some more prints I love.

I already have a huge stack of diapers to sell- but I keep making excuses to not list them. Now I have a friend that is about to start CDing (who also has really big kiddos) but they also have super sensitive skin. So now I want to let her borrow a bunch of them so she can figure out what works for her before I sell! Excuses, excuses!

I also want to hear about the S series- I think the black one with the multicolored snaps is super cute- but I generally don't like double leg gussets- I hated them on rumparooz. Any opinions?

I already paid for another order even with my 2 Delaminatin issues (which i think was a fluke and bad PUL) because my others are GREAT!!

Finally AFTER A YEAR of searching i finally found something that doesnt dig into my little girls chubby thighs and fits PERFECT!! She still fits on the smallest rise snaps whereas she was on the LARGEST rise snaps on the Sunbaby's

I am shocked with how much 1 bamboo insert holds. We survived another nap with just one insert without a leak!

Here is Alva #4 today:

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

Such a cutie pie, ebandive. I was able to take a few pics of DS after his nap. First I put the giraffe minky on. This is the one I mentioned was way bigger than all of my other Alvas. No matter what I do, it just fits WEIRD. I can use it on the smallest or mid-rise, but the tabs are way too long and so no matter where I put the hip snaps, material just sticks out where it shouldn't.

Looks just fine when he's laying down:

But just wonky when he's standing... even on a higher rise, the front sticks out like this:

Royal star print (one of my faves) with one bamboo insert... MUCH better:

White w/animals (2 bamboo inserts for nap):

Owl leggings over the white animal diaper:


Already ordered more leggings so I will have a total of 12 pairs . They are great for around the house and will work well under pants for winter. DH washed them with towels though so they need a shave because they got all pilly.

Will be sure to post action shots of the S series as soon as I get them. Probably early next week.

i also took some pics of the different alvas i have just because the cuts are quite different. i don't know what series each are but from left to right and then bottom to top they are pul/sc, minky/sc, pul/fleece. tried the pul/sc on ds and it was absurdly large compared to the others, lol!
