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.
Your DS has amazingly gorgeous blue eyes! That is wierd about the giraffe print. I really like that print and not sure why I didn't order it the first time. I wonder if the one I get will be super large? I won't really mind since Trip is so big already. I can't wait to see the S series!

I think I'm going to post my giraffe to FSOT... I don't know if it's worth it though and maybe as DS grows it will fit better. May not be worth the $2 or whatever I would make from selling.

They are, but this giraffe one is crazy big. I have multiple other minky/suedecloth Alvas, and ONLY the giraffe is huge. Let me take a pic:



Both are fully unsnapped... left is cow minky, and right is "small giraffe". There is a larger giraffe print that may be the smaller size. If so, I'd rather have that one.

Also wanted to mention, I was talking to DH about selling a bunch of our other diapers. He says, "The only ones I don't really like are those ones with like a million snaps." Yep, he's talking about the Alvas. I do have to keep him in mind because he is home with DS when I'm working, and changes quite a few diapers. I'm keeping some of our BG until I get the S series. I think those snaps will be a bit simpler for him.

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

all of the ones i have right now are minky too and the size does vary. i have the small giraffe print one too. i'm not sure if it varies quite that much with mine though. a few of them are larger though.

I'm just going to order it off the other co-op so it saves some on shipping.

Ummm... I was just trying to find reviews for the S series, and stumbled upon the GoGreen Champ. Is this the exact same diaper with a different label? It sure looks like it. I keep reading good things about these diapers, but that is crazy that they charge twice as much!

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

Finally I got some pic's of dd this morning.... I got this animal one just by chance (someone didn't want) and really like it. I do think the fleece ones are a tiny bit bulkier.






her leggings LOVE THEM! (check out her thighs lol)



and for a fun photo op Zebra Minky oh and they all have 1 bamboo insert (need more of these)
