Calling all Grovia testers

I am so excited about the new Grovia prefolds. They seem to be exactly what we have been searching for! Can someone who was a tester take a few photos for me laid inside what ever covers you have? Or any action photos using a snappi?

Re: Calling all Grovia testers

The size prefold they sent for a tester I think is way too small to snappi. I used it under flips and grovia covers padfolded and loved it. Very absorbent and trim! I could take pictures before bed tonight, I have been using it overnight on my 7 month old without any booster.

Okay, here's some pictures.

In a Grovia shell, med. rise setting:



Flip Cover, med. rise setting:



And just to compare size of the tester pf, beside a Flip Organic:



They definitely need alot of prepping imo. The first time I used it with dd who is 9 months, 19lbs, she soaked through in an hour. The more I've washed it, the longer it holds, which is typical of bamboo I think. It was SUPER soft, but isn't quite as soft now. HTH!

Re: Calling all Grovia testers

I got a size 2 and it's been great on my 2yo! I don't snappi, but it fits under a grovia shell unsnapped, and perfect in a Flip or bumGenius on the middle rise. I've been using it as a nap diaper stuffed in a BG. Never a leak!

Re: Calling all Grovia testers

oooh! Thanks for the pictures! It looks really great in a flip cover. Does anyone know if it is less bulky/timmer than a GMD yellow edge?

I don't have any yellow edges, but it's the same size as some other infant pfs that I have. I'd say it would be pretty close in bulk, maybe a tiny bit less bulky than the gmd.
