What is the Grovia Hybrid/AI2 diapering system?

The GroVia® Hybrid/AI2 is a modern, one-size diapering system. Its unique, waterproof Shell and cloth Soaker Pad minimize waste and cost. When the Soaker Pad is wet, simply replace it with a fresh, dry one!

How does the Grovia Hybrid/AI2 system work?

The Hybrid/AI2 system is designed so that the outer Shell may be used for multiple diaper changes. If the Soaker Pad is wet, simply snap in a fresh one and you are ready to go. If the Shell is wet, allow it to air dry and use for the next diaper change. When your GroVia® Shell is soiled or very saturated, start fresh with a new GroVia® Shell.

Most GroVia® Hybrid/AI2 system users will find that using 2-4 GroVia® Shells are enough per day, although newborn babies may need more.

How does the one-size feature on my Grovia work?

GroVia will fit MOST babies from 8-35 lbs. The GroVia Shell features three sets of rise snaps that adjust to fit your baby. Our unique one-size Organic Soaker Pad fits from 8-35 lbs as well.

  1. Newborn/Small Infant Setting: Snap your GroVia Shell rise snaps on the lowest setting. Snap your soaker pad into the shell and simply flip the front of the soaker pad in towards baby. Fastened diaper on baby.
  2. Infant Setting: Snap your GroVia Shell rise snaps on the middle setting. Snap your soaker pad into the shell. Tuck the front of your soaker pad down, while pulling the front panel up and fasten on baby.
  3. Toddler Setting: Leave your GroVia Shell rise snaps unsnapped. Snap your soaker pad into the shell and fasten on baby.

First and foremost it is important to wash and dry your Soaker Pads at least 3-5 times prior to use. They will not be fully absorbent for up to 10 washes.

You will find that your laundry loads will be a third of the size of your regular laundry loads!

  • Your GroVia® Shell and Soaker Pads can be washed together on warm with the full recommended amount of detergent. 
  • A second rinse will leave your diaper squeaky clean.
  • We HIGHLY recommend line drying your Shells. They will dry in less than two hours and will stay nice longer.
  • GroVia® Soaker Pads can be tumbled dried Regular use of bleach and fabric softeners are not your diaper’s friends and will void all warranties.

This may seem obvious, but whiteners, bleach, vinegar, enzyme cleaners and fabric softeners are not your diaper’s friend and will void all warranties.

  • Above anything else GroVia® Soaker Pads must be washed and dried on hot 3-5 times prior to use (with detergent). Keep in mind that they will NOT reach their maximum absorbency for up to 10 washes. 
  • The Soaker Pads, while very absorbent, do not contain the SAP (super absorbent polymer) gels that make disposable diapers hold massive amounts of liquid. This means you should plan on changing baby every two hours. 
  • For naps, nights, car trips and older babies we highly recommend adding a GroVia® Booster to increase absorbency without adding much bulk.
Refrain from using petroleum based diaper balms as these coat your Soaker Pads, affecting their ability to absorb liquid. A good alternative is the GroVia® Magic Stick.

Hybrid Snap Shell
Love the quality of this shell! I don't use it for everyday use around the house but when we go out for the day this is my go to. I like only having to pack a few of the Soaker Pads rather than a whole bunch of stuffed pocket diapers. The shell can also be used as a swim diaper as the inside is mesh.

Grovia Hybrid Shell
We love these diapers. Great at home or out and about. The snaps are great and seem to be high quality compared to other brands. We havn't had any issues with leaks and fit well. A little bulky but our daughter is only 6 weeks old and on the smallest setting.

Great versatility
We are really loving the versatility of the Grovia shells. They fit pretty trim when paired with either the snap in inserts or the disposable inserts. We also use them to cover our other fitted diapers and occasionally use them as swim diapers. Really like the mesh lining as well.

Too big for a little baby
Although the diaper says it'll fit at 8 lbs, my baby is 10 and still not able to fit this diaper. It's cute, but much too big!

love for overnight
I love this shell over my grovia bamboo prefolds for a great leakproof overnight system. I use the Angel wings fold with a snappi.

I'm quite a fan of these shells. At first I was skeptical of the mesh lining and thought I'd never be able to use the shell a second time because it would be wet but that's not the case. They fit very well and are trimmer than some of my other diapers but the elastics don't hold up very well.

favorite shell
I love these shells. The bands are super stretchy so they have a nice fit. I just wish the snaps matched with most other brands bc I don't love the grovia soakers. Not a major issue for me, I just lay in other soakers or prefolds and it works fine.

Best Travel Diaper
When traveling this shell paired with the disposable BioSoaker Inserts are the best! An added bonus the disposable BioSoaker Inserts are one size fits all so you can buy a pack and won't have to worry about having your baby grow out of them.
