Diaper Trial Resutls: Lalabye Baby Diaper

For months now I have been hearing all about how amazing the Lalabye Baby diaper is so I finally had to buy one.  People raved about how trim it is (which is a major selling point for me) as well as how amazingly absorbent the inserts are.  When I got my Lalabye baby diaper I was so excited to put it through my diaper trial and share the results with you!!
Number times of uses: 14
Number of leaks: 0 (well one tiny one)
Longest wear without a leak: 3.5 hours
Big Booty factor: 2
Best Use: out of the house, naps, under dresses :)

·     I love the vibrant colors and rainbow snaps
·     The inserts (even when you use both) are amazingly trim and absorbent
·     Can function as a pocket, AIO and cover
·     Options are limited to mostly solid colors      

After all the hype around these diapers, I must say that they did not disappoint.  They were everything I expected and more!  The diaper is really well made and the TPU feels very sturdy.  I love the vibrant colors and the candy snaps just add that extra pop to the diapers.  Above and beyond the looks, these performed amazing.  The bamboo inserts are amazingly trim and I never had a leak, Not. Even. Once!  I love that the insert snaps into the front and the back and even has the option of going inside a pocket if you want the diaper to be stay dry for your baby.  I actually used both inserts every time because the additional insert didn't really add any bulk and added a lot of absorbency.  As for cons I spent the past week trying to think of a con and I honestly couldn't come up with one so I have a pseudo-con of only solid colors offered in the line up. I would also so that the only thing keeping the Lalabye baby diaper from being the most trim diaper I have tried is that it is average width in the crotch, but other than that super trim. These diapers definitely lived up to the hype and I will definitely be including these in any future gifts.

Diaper Trial Results: GroVia O.N.E.

Back in the Fall of 2014 GroVia launched an exciting new project and an associated Kickstarter campaign to produce the O.N.E diaper by GroVia.  I was really excited to see this campaign because I thought that the use of Kickstarter was such a fun idea and of course the diaper promised to have a lot of interesting features.  A lot of those features were unique such as the diaper including both hook/loop and snaps, ability to add absorbency, no prep required and a trim fit.  Of course I signed up as a backer right away and anxiously awaited my O.N.E diaper

When I got my O.N.E diaper and shirt I was so excited to put it through my diaper trial and share the results with you!!
Number times of uses: 15
Number of leaks: 0
Longest wear without a leak: 3.5 hours
Big Booty factor: 4
Best Use: night, out of the house

·     Has a lot of unique features
·     The TPU outer is really thick and sturdy feeling
·     I love the inserts, they are trim and have both the stay dry feature using natural fibers!  
·     The Micro fleece on the inside is very thick making the diaper bulkier than I expected
·     I couldn't get the hook/loop option to work well, every time I took the diaper off it       would unsnap.
·     GroVia uses different snaps than other brands making it so that shells and inserts are not interchangeable.
Overall I really like this diaper, as you can see it performed well during the day and I even used it a few times at night.  My favorite part is the inserts, they are really trim, easy to use and I love that they are micro fleece topped so that they are stay dry.  For most of the uses recorded I used just one insert and it would frequently last 3+ hours.  Overnight I used both inserts on my older daughter who does not pee as much and it worked great.  Of course GroVia always offers unique and fun prints and my whale print did not disappoint. 
While in theory the combined hook/loop and snap feature sounds great, in practice for me it did not work as well.  Every time I would take the diaper off the hook/loop was so strong that it just unsnapped so I ended up removing and just using the snaps. 
Overall this diaper is great and in my opinion the versatility and quality of the inserts are the shining features. Originally these were only available to Kickstarter backers but are now available at retailers (although a lot are backordered or have waitlists).
