Alva Bamboo

I broke down and placed a small order sampling alva dipes. What do you think about their dipes? Which are your fav. I need all natural fibers and thought 10 was great for a dipe w/ 2 inserts!

Re: Alva Bamboo

Did you order the pocket with bamboo as the inner material? Those wicked for us but the suedecloth pockets work great. We lay in the 3layer bamboo inserts instead of stuffing them and ds doesn't have a problem. However, if we stuff them he turns bright red and starts to get rashy every time. I used alva pockets and bamboo inserts exclusively for over a year w/ ds and LOVED them..... I'm saving them for the next lo.
FYI: If you like them, you can buy them even cheaper through a co-op.

Re: Alva Bamboo

I bought a few diapers from superstash and one of them was a kawaii bamboo. I thought it was alva bambo and ordered a few more directly from alva but when I got them they weren't as nice that's when I actually looked at the other and saw it was kawaii. The Kawaii bamboo is much softer and just looks better made, but I don't actually see anything wrong with the Alvas. I just washed them and they haven't been used yet but they should work fine.

Re: Alva Bamboo

I like the alva bamboo. They fit well and seem to absorb a good amount. I had the same problem with suede cloth (didn't matter what brand of diaper it was, if it had suede cloth touching his skin he turned pink)

Re: Alva Bamboo

I didn't like the bamboo diapers because they didn't dry thoroughly when hung up. That's a requirement for any of our PUL things.

Re: Alva Bamboo

I use all natural fibers for my kids after rashy bums on and off from Microsuede pockets (bgs mostly). I have grovia AIO which leak because he is such a super soaker. They last about 1 hr on him. Looking for something to take their place.
