They are super pretty snaps!

My DD never had chunky thighs. DS has them by the bucket load though. The only thing better than chunky baby thighs are plump baby cheeks!

How do they wash? Any pilling? Do you think they will eventually get stiff?

Mine does have a little pilling, but not too bad. I'd say its been washed 8-10 times since I've had it. I have a FL, wash in Tide and no fabric softener, and dry in the dryer. I do think they would need occasional cd safe fabric softener to stay really soft.

Re: Calling all Grovia testers

I've used mine for naps and it's been great. My son has a super short rise I guess, so he's still on the smallest setting of the Grovia cover. I had the infant size PF, so it had to be folded a little.

I've been too chicken to try it at night though. We can use either flip + hemp booster or Grovia + 2 cotton boosters. Does anyone know how the PF compares in absorbency? I love how trim it is and it would be great to stuff in our night pockets if it works!

Re: Calling all Grovia testers

Do these take longer to dry than say a regular cotton prefold, or compared to the organic Grovia inserts?

I've washed and used mine 20+ times and they are softer than i received it, i don't beleive they will get stiff. the more i washed it, the more absorbant it got.

they wash nicely and dryer fairly well. a little shorter drying time than the snap in soakers.

yes, i have some pilling but it is still super soft
