Today, I am doing a review of our Alva Baby Cloth diapers- and although I may receive some free merchandise for doing this review... all thoughts and opinions are my own :)
Alva Baby offers a variety of cloth diapers. The diapers I tried fall into the category of a "pocket diaper" meaning you stuff an insert (or two) in the back pocket of the diaper.
I admit, I was skeptical at first. Alva Baby cloth diapers are only about $6 each (that's $15+ cheaper than any other cloth diaper I have ever purchased). I was worried that they would leak or give my babies rashes. However, I have been pleasantly surprised! We have not encountered any leaks or rashes with our Alvas. Plus, they are super cute!
My favorite thing about Alva Baby cloth diapers (besides the price) is how trim fitting they are! Here is a picture comparison between Alva and a different brand of cloth diapers. Each cloth diaper pictured has one insert in. Alva baby is the blue diaper, the green is the other brand.
The Alvas, also adjust bigger and smaller than my other brand- with the adjustable size snapping.
They fit babies from 8-35 pounds.
Here are the diapers adjusted on their largest setting. Again, Alva is the blue diaper.
...and here are the diapers on their smallest settings. The leg holes on the Alva's get smaller too, for those tiny newborn legs.
We are currently using ours on the medium snap rise, and I love the fit!
They look so comfy! I want this to be as honest as a review as possible, and the only Con I can think of is that the fabric isn't as luxurious as our others- but if your baby is just going to poop in it, I guess that doesn't matter- plus for the price I really can't complain. Cloth diapers totally count as pants in our house. I love snuggling and watching them crawl around in them.
Another product of Alva Baby that I have been trying out are their diaper liners. You place one on top of the diaper. When your baby poops you simply hold it over the toilet and the liner (and all the poo) falls into the toilet, and you flush! Then, you simply throw the diaper in the washer. You guys, it's SO easy and not messy! If you cloth diaper, you need to be using these. You will thank me.
Say what?! Cloth diapering is easy!
Another thing I love about our Alva's is that the material makes it easy to stuff with inserts.
Overall, we LOVE our Alva Baby cloth diapers and would definitely recommend them! You can find them here: http://www.alvababy.com
