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

I just wanted to chime in and say that those of you who are on the fence about ordering alvas because of the wash in warm instructions and are worried about delamination not to worry too much. I have several alvababy diapers in my stash. I wash on hot and dry on hot every time. Some have been in use for over a year (but I use prefolds as well alot, but in general, I'd say many have been washed 40-50 times so far and I've had NO issues with delamination. The only issue I've ever had was one rise snap on an S series dipe wouldn't stay snapped, that's been it! Out of over 40 alvababies. Pure, minky, fleece inner, suedcloth inner you name it. For $5 each they are great diapers imo!

*I'm not telling you all to wash on hot as I do (because alvababy doesn't recommend it). I'm just sharing my experience

yeah i totally meant to add I wash mine on hot as well and no delamination issues except my light purple but apparently a lot of people have issues with that one as well. I also put mine in the dryer (on accident when Im not paying attention).

Does anyone know if they really are releasing a newborn diaper?

I'll get pictures of my DS in one once they are dry!

I'm a little worried about washing these as they say to wash on cold. I really don't want to wash on cold, but if I do wash on hot, then I'd be sad to have them delaminate....
after someone gave a friend of mine some to try i got a couple for myself and LOVE them! I wash on hot with 1/4 cup of bleach in each load and they still look brand new, absolutely no issues, so i wouldnt worry about delaminating hope that helps!
