Do you love Grovia shells?
 
I'm thinking about trying Grovia shells. I like that there is no exposed PUL. Can I trifold prefolds or pad fold flats in these? Do they also work as a cover over fitteds? I'm using Flips right now.

ETA: is there any wing droop in these? I'd get snaps!

I love them! I have a skinny kid and they're perfect. Never a leak. You could definitely use prefolds and flips in them but I think a fitted would be too bulky

I have 3 shells that I use over padfolded flats, Thirsties hemp inserts, Alva bamboo 3 layer inserts, and the Flip flats also padfolded. I doubt they would work over a fitted as they are narrow like a SoftBums Echo so very trim.

They are very nice thought. I have the Vanilla H&L.

Cool! They just might be perfect for the diaper bag!

Great, thanks! Have you ever used Flips? Do you like the Grovias better?

They are surprisingly tiny. I got her one on FSOT, and I'm a little nervous to pop a flip on - and she's little for her age! Going to bite the bullet tonight.

Hmm! I wish I could see one in person first! ;) My DD is tiny too.

I'm new and this is my first post. But, I ordered my 7th GroVia shell yesterday evening. I am such a GroVia nut. I love them. I get the stay-dry soaker pads and they absorb a lot of moisture. Can stay on baby for 3 hours and still be dry (it's made of cotton/fleece hemp). LOVE the GroVia brand, hope you give it a go.

Wow!! That is awesome. I think I may just have to get one! ;)

Are you thinking of buying on here? Or brand new? Brand new is like $16.95 everywhere I have looked. Let me know if you find a good deal or know a seller. :)

I like the Grovia better than Flips for my son. He has issues with the inside PUL strip on the tummy and they are way to wide for him. He is very petite so the narrowness of Grovia & SoftBums Echos work well.

I had a huge stash of BGE, 4.0 & Flip and hated that I had to sell them all off. I tried again with the BF sale (b1g1) and they were still too wide.
