Re: What do you think of Alva Baby pocket diapers

I have five and I do think the quality is very good for the price. The PUL is nice and thick, the fleece gets pilly, but that's to be expected. They fit my 19lb 5mth old nicely, BUT, I am not a fan of the snap placement. I actually don't like any diapers with the hip snap because they are hard to get right on my chubby guy's legs.
I wash and dry on hot and have been for 5mths I have had them. They are holding up just fine. For the price, I would recommend them, but I do prefer my Blueberry snap dipes.

Re: What do you think of Alva Baby pocket diapers

They're a cheap way to beef up your stash (or in my case add color). i've only bought the solid colored ones with suedecloth inners. I also dislike the hip snaps. my favs are still my BG 4.0

Eh, I'm not a fan. The inserts are too thin to hold even one pee and the pul is super thin

I really like them. The only reason that I like BG and blueberry better is because of the aplix (Velcro) since I'm still not good at snaps after about 6 months. If alvas came in aplix, I'd have a whole stash of them. Oh, the one thing that I dont like is that the minky ones fit bigger so my skinny girl can't wear them. All ours are solid. And I haven't had any issues with their inserts. No better or worse than my others.

I like the price, but agree that the inserts aren't my favourites. But I don't like microfiber in general so they don't stand much chance in my books. They fit relatively well and I don't mind the snaps.

Re: What do you think of Alva Baby pocket diapers

I have some on the way and I have heard lots of good reviews. I hope I like them, because I love the price! I have heard that their 'color snap' dipes are better for over night.
