Overall, I liked the biosoakers but I still prefer using cloth diapers when traveling. The GroVia biosoakers contain only a small amount of SAP (super absorbent polymer) and they are a good option for those looking to avoid the chemicals found in most mainstream disposable diapers. What I didn't like was that the biosoakers had a tendency to bunch up at the front of the diaper and result in leaks. After trying a few different things with the biosoakers, I discovered that inserting the biosoaker as close to the front of the diaper as possible did reduce the bunching and leaks. I didn't do any experimenting with the biosoakers for overnight use, but I worry that they may not be absorbent enough for an older baby.
While the biosoakers were not my favorite diapering system, I really liked the GroVia diaper covers. I purchased a few of the GroVia all-in-two snap in inserts, and found them to be really absorbent. Unfortunately they were a little too rough for our second child with eczema, but I continue to use the GroVia covers in combination with cotton flat diapers. I love how the GroVia covers and diapers are trim-fitting between the legs. Since they are trimmer, they don't irritate my son's legs like other diapers do. I like to pad-fold a flat diaper into a GroVia diaper cover. This gives a very trim-fitting combination that is incredibly absorbent and almost impossible to leak out of.
|We used GroVia diaper covers for the Flats and Handwashing challenge this past spring. We continue to use the covers because they are trim-fitting and work well.|
