Re: TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS! "S" Series Picture #331!

Anyone else having leak issues with Alvas? I use a hemp insert in the pocket and so far it always leaks through the PUL around the legs. My little dude isn't a very heavy wetter either and it's happened 3/3 times. Bought it new and we don't have build up issues. Glad I have my 'ol trusty SoftBums and BGE's around...but kinda bummed I ordered like 7 more of these and not sure if they're going to work. They're trim though Maybe I'll see how it goes when I get the others that have the bamboo inserts.

Is the insert completely filling.the pocket? Do you have any other inserts to try with it? We haven't had issues but I have a toddler which could make a difference fit-wise. Does the PUL look okay? I have only had one of 20-something delaminate so far, and Alva replaced it.

For anyone who has ordered directly from their site...how long did it take to get your stuff? My order on their site says "delivered" but it most certainly has not been delivered to me! LOL I was just wondering what that meant...

I agree with what PP said about it and also is the hemp absorbing fast enough? I tried hemp a few times in ours and it just didn't absorb fast enough and caused everything to get soaked. UGH!

I haven't had any leaks at all! Have you tried laying the insert in rather than stuffing it? That might work better. Or you could stuff with a prefold to insure the inside is covered.

I'll try it with something else and see how it goes. I'd prefer to use it a pocket instead of laying something in there but we'll see I can try both.

Re: TRIM! :Alva POST YOUR ACTION SHOTS! "S" Series Picture #331!

I've only used the S series ones as my others ones are still enroute. I've had no leak problems. I am currently using them with my 6 month old as a nighttime diaper and it is stuffed with a hemparoo prefold, and two babykicks hemparoos or happy heinys stuffin with the extra insert). It is packed full and she looks pretty funny but she stays dry for 12 hours and that includes several night nursings.

I hope the regular alvas work as well. I am very pleased with the diapers and the quality seems really good. Certainly on par with Fuzzy Bunz which is what my current stash consists of. as soon as my order of regular alvas comes in, it is bye bye FBs. I am tired of the plain colors and the high prize tag as well as the delamination issues. You just can't beat the price tag of these alvas.

I HATE FB's..the sizing is horrible on them! The size smalls still have yet to fit my 9 month old! WTF?

Still totally in love with my alvas though!..which are currently in the wash LOL

Any word from katedanzer? I'm so anxious to get my Alva order; it's really messing with my sleep.

Please Mr. Postman comes to mind!
