These are both good ideas I think. Although the rebranded Alva might be trickier.

You are right abt that. I'm going to contact a Mod abt it. I think I *may* have bought a re-branded China Cheapie though not specifically Alva. I'm sad because I feel duped...

I think someone said they were rebranded Alvas but I don't know. I haven't seen anything from Diaper Junction confirming or denying. I do know that they look really cool and have been eyeing them myself lately.

Ditto on this!
The PUL is thinner on these. I have a heavy wetter of a two month old and they wick through the PUL. In regards to diaper especially, you get what you pay for. There is also no warranty with these diapers. If you get a bad batch or the snaps break you are stuck with them.

Re: Tell me about Alva pockets.

i have them and love em. really if they dont work after some time or have a quality issue, is it that big of a deal? they are $5.
Ive washed and dried mine nearly everyday for several weeks and no issues. they are cute, fit great and are inexpensive.
as far as the copyright or what have you, honestly I have worse things in world to worry about so I am not gunna stress on that. I am just trying to keep the earth as clean as possible, keep my kids safe and healthy and hope to not hear about another shooting :/

Thanks this list is great! I really love my diaper rite covers. I assume they are alva covers rebranded? Well if so now I know why people love Alvas so much! Thanks for this list.
