My daughter potty trained out of GroVia AIO at 28 pounds, never a problem. My son is 26 pounds, and about 6 inches shorter than DD was at 28 pounds, so he is a stocky chunky solid boy, and they aren't the best fit on him. But for my no butt, slim hips rail of a daughter I loved them! It really depends on the kid in any OS diaper around that 30 pound mark, I think it is easier to adjust the fit and sizing when they are younger. I'm hoping to train my sone this summer just to avoid all this madness of diapers and big toddlers! (I can dream!)

For sure. I really like both, but grovia aios do run smaller so I don't think they would work as well for a 30 lber.

Re: Grovia AIO vs BGE

Grovia are super absorbent... but the fit is just terrible. I got rid of mine within a week of buying. I love elementals though.

Re: Grovia AIO vs BGE

I bought another Grovia to try... I'm in love!!

I take back everything I said! (mind you - my baby's shape has changed a lot since I last tried them...) I love the way they fit, they are so trim. I've only been using it for 2 days, but I prefer the fit of the Grovia to both our OS simplex and BGE.

I'll grab some action shots for you tomorrow. I'm tempted to sell my Simplex for more Grovia.

I have some pics on my computer I will go find. They won't be of the same age on DD1 but pretty close. I didn't own them at the same time. I've been scared to buy a GroVia AIO for our DD2 because she is already 25 lbs at 13 months and taller than every 18 month old she has been around. We are BGE lovers but I did like GroVia, just not how small they were. They were like a baby thong...and my DD1 was tiny!

Oh, I have mine set aside, I am sure they will fit again, right now the hybrids are perfect on him!
