Newborn Diaper Trial Restuls: GroVia Newborn All in One

Over the next few weeks I am excited to share the results of my Newborn Diaper Trial. There are 10 different brands that I will be reporting on and the first newborn diaper trial results I wanted to share is for the GroVia Newborn All in One diaper.  It was hard to pick one to start out with but the GroVia Newborn All in One diaper was one of my favorites for many reasons so I thought it was a great first place to start. 

I conducted the newborn diaper trial exactly the same as my normal diaper trial with the exception of how I logged the leaks.  Overall I would say that the newborn diapers I used leaked more often than the one size diapers I have tried in the past.  For that reason I decided to track the severity of the leak to give the results a little more color.  With each leaks I ranked them from one to five with one representing a tiny leak that you might not even change their clothes for and a five being soaked.  Now for the results of the GroVia Newborn All in One diaper:

Number times of uses: 12
Number of leaks: 6
Longest wear without a leak: 3 hours
Average severity of leaks: 1.5
Big Booty factor – 2

·      Combines absorbency of natural fibers with the stay dry fabric next to baby's skin
·      Fit below umbilical cord for my son even without snapping down
·      Attached soaker makes laundry easy and dries quickly
·      Fit skinny newborn legs

·       No umbilical notch or snap down
Overall this diaper performed great.  All of the leaks listed above were after 2.5 hours or more of wear and 4 out of 6 of them were a level 1 so not significant at all.  I knew that if my son was wearing this diaper I wouldn't have to worry about him for a while.  The GroVia Newborn All in One diaper is said to fit from 5-12 pounds and I definitely found that to be true.  My pictures below show that it fit at 2 weeks old (6.5 pounds) snapped all the way down and still at 2 months old (11.25 pounds) not snapped down.  I like that for the size range that it fit my newborn's skinny legs and was still really absorbent.   Even though it does not have a specific feature for the umbilical corn I never had a problem with it fitting under the cord.  The only reason I listed this as a con was because other users may not have the same results without an umbilical snap down so I think it is a nice feature for a newborn diaper. 
The pictures below are when Lachlan was 2 weeks old and about 6.5 pounds.  He still had really skinny legs and the diaper fit great.
2 Weeks old - 6.5 pounds
2 Weeks old - 6.5 pounds
The next set of pictures I took were at 1 month old (5 weeks).  As you can see I still have it snapped all the way down and the fit is still great.  At this age he was 9 pounds, 4 ounces.
1 month old - 9.25 pounds
1 month old - 9.25 pounds
 At 2 months old, my son was 11 pounds 2 ounces and 23 inches long.  In the picture below I have the rise fully unsnapped and the fit is still great.  At 11 pounds you can definitely tell that it will fit for another few pounds.

2 months old - 11 pounds
Overall I really liked the GroVia Newborn All in One diaper.  The fit and absorbency were some of the best of the newborn diapers that I tried.  I should note that with my middle daughter that I tried the old version of the GroVia Newborn All in One diaper and I was not a fan so if you are buying used make sure to get the new version.  These worked well for 2 months (11 pounds) for us but then my son started peeing so much that we had to move up to one size diapers to keep up with his absorbency needs.
