Wasted all that money on them....they were grobaby then but IDK how much they changed. The customer service sucked and wouldn't reimburse me at all or help me fix any of our issues except change the velcro to snaps...woopdido,
wow- this is unusual! they have a great Customer Service reputation in general!
When they changed from GroBaby to GroVia they made a LOT of changes that address almost every complaint in this thread...
They have wider elastics, and no longer leave the marks someone mentioned
The Soaker pads are made out of a super soft organic cotton jersey knit, the same that is in their awesome AIO diaper
The shells have tuck-under laundry tabs that significantly increase the longevity of wear on the hook and loop
I think the Costco kits are great deals! Just remember to hang dry the shells, for 2 reasons- the elastic is only covered by a thin layer of mesh, so is susceptible to burning in the dryer, and the loop panel on the front of the diaper will cease to hold to the hook as well if it goes in the dryer (the heat and tumbling flattens out the nylon loops)
I also use prefolds and flats, but I don't use pockets because I can't be bothered to stuff them, such a waste of time! I love my GroVias , I have not the AIO and they hybrids and they make up the majority of my stash. There are days when I am sorely tempted to abandon my cloth and go 100% BioSoaker - those are awesome!
