Understandable.

Well, until such information can be disclosed I will not be basing my decisions soley on the word of someone I do not know. Not trying to be snarky, but I am sure you would feel the same if I made a huge claim and could not back it up with any evidence. If/when there is ever any real evidence provided then I will reassess my decisions. It seems many of the claims about the china diapers can not be backed up with reliable information from what I have been seeing in these types of threads.

And they're manufactured in china.

I think it's the front snaps that signal alva. Why would you purposely put them so close together. To me that doesn't help keep the front panel up better. I think it should be at least one snap between, instead of right next to each other.
Oh no. More Alvas! Cry. I thought they were more rounded. Sorry to send you to another re-branded diaper. Why oh why???

Re: Tell me about Alva pockets.

Kawaii diapers are NOT "china cheapies." They HAVE been tested and post the test results for all to see. Scroll down to the bottom of this page:

Well that is awesome. I stand corrected. I have owned several Kawaii & now I don't feel bad.

They have one test posted for one particular fabric, but not the multiple tests required for EACH fabric in their lines. They are not compliant.

I hope it will all come to light eventually; I'm bound by a confidentiality statement for now. I do understand being frustrated with me right now, and I don't expect anybody to take me at my word--you don't know me, after all. I'm just in contact with a few people who have been investigating (in a serious, orderly manner with assistance from qualified professionals) these manufacturers for a while.
