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.

Great Diaper!
I am new to cloth diapering, so I'm still discovering my favourite brands of cloth diapers. So far, GroVia Hybrid Snap Shell is my favourite, and my Go-To diaper of choice. I thoroughly enjoy the fit on my little guy. The only think is that it's advertised to be able to be used twice(the shell)... However, that's not always the case. I find that it's a great poop catcher, but it doesn't always stay in the snap-in insert. I find it does leak onto the shell, therefore rendering it soiled and not usable for a second diaper change.

Great shell
Excellent fit, easy to do up. I love the versatility of these shells-I use the snap in soakers or a prefold.

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.

snap shells
I really like the concept of the hybrid system. However, we keep getting leak and fit issues and can't seem to figure them out, and so Grovia unfortunately hasn't worked out for us. I do, however, love the snaps! They are so 'snappy'! I wish BG snaps were like that.

Trimmest diaper cover
This is definitely the trimmest diaper cover I have tried yet and it has never leaked! I also use them with prefolds and it works amazing!

We have a little guy with skinny legs, these diapers do not adjust small enough for around his legs. They are okay for leaks provided we add extra liners. Disappointed with the wash of these shells, unlike other brands we have tried, these shells require a conventional spot cleaner after the initial prewash to get squeaky clean.

Great trim fit
This diaper fits my girl well. I love that the inserts are snap in and out, making it easy for changes. They are trim, yet absorbent! They only have one row of snaps, which sometimes makes it harder to get a good fit, but havent had an issue with getting this one to fit. Very happy to have some of these in my stash.

Great cover
This is a great cover, and would make a great swim diaper. I preferred the snaps to the hook&loop. But must say it is not easy to wipe the inner mesh clean and reuse if leaks happen as compared to the smooth TPU of the rumparooz cover for example.

I feel like if I had purchased these right from the get go I would have saved alot of money that has been spent on other brands that just can't match up to these, also would have probably continued cloth diapering without the few month break in sposies we had. This hybrid system is the boss. Snaps feel like they will outlive me, H&L is a bit more work / I bought some used and doesn't seem they will hold up as long.. they kinda curl?
