Hi new to CD

Hi I am new to CD and I have a few questions. I want to buy something that is going to last me for years for the rest of my future kids. I have heard good things about alva and I was wondering if anybody here can tell me how long they have had their alvas and how they are holding up. What are some that you have for many years and are holding up?

I use them and a friend of mine does also. She has had hers about 2 yrs and they are used often. I would say they are a good investment and if used in a larger rotation would last through plenty of kids.

Re: Hi new to CD

I am using fb pockets til kids got older here and I just haven't figured out the secret to washing toddler pee diapers that I am sure have lasted several several years as they were like the first ones that fb made from my research on fb.

welcome.

Hi. I had a small stash of Alva's right at 2 years ago. They were used heavily and almost all of the solid colored ones wicked or the PUL separated completely. I sold the printed ones off and had more than one person tell me they had issues with those as well. I wouldn't do them again unless I had a very large stash or had the most amazing insert that prevented any and all leaks.
