The Natural Baby Company Gro Baby Diaper


Pros: Easy to use & care for, Super absorbant, Seems Comfortable for the baby

Cons: Inner mesh is made of Polyester

This is a fantastic diapering system!  I LOVE the fact that you can re-use the outer shell several times prior to tossing in the wash....this will reduce the wear & tear on the diaper by a TON and I would imagine that when well cared for you could use this system for at least 3 children.  The soaker and boosters are amazingly soft.  I was skeptical of the booster providing absorbency for overnight sleeping because it was so trim.  But, to my pleasant surprise it works wonderfully.  I was even more excited to discover that my Flats also worked really well in the shell (basically using the shell as a One Size cover).  So that provided a super economical way to get even more diaper changes in. 

Because you only need half the amount of shells as soakers this is by far one of the more economical Organic options on the market.  Here is a quick comparison:

1 GroBaby Live Diaper Kit - $375
24 Organic Bum Genius - $529.68.
24 Blueberry Minky Bamboo (w/organic cotton) - $791.28
24 Swaddlebees Organic Velor & 12 Blueberry One Size Coveralls - $874.44 

The GB Live Diaper Kit includes EVERYTHING you need to cloth diaper 1 child at a time...
12-GroBaby Shells with Organic Cotton snap-in soaker pads and Organic Cotton boosters6-Organic Cotton Snap-In Soaker Pad 2pk2-Organic Cotton boosters 2pk(TOTAL:  12 Shells, 24 Snap in Soakers, 10 Boosters)
And since they are One Size they will grow with your baby, saving you even more money.  The only con for me (and this is just personally for me) is that I assumed all of the inner components were Organic cotton but then the shell was causing a rash on my daughters skin.  That's when I realized that the inner mesh was polyester.  (My daughter has a contact dermatitis to polyester).  So I am bummed I can't use the shell right now.  I'm hoping the next baby won't have as many skin sensitivities.  But, it's not a total loss since the soaker and booster are separate from the shell so, I can use the soaker as an overnight doubler in my Bum Genius Organic Diapers for ULTRA leak protection and the booster at nap time or long car rides for ultra trim absorbency.  (Especially since it's summer and she is drinking much more fluids than usual).

If your looking to reduce wear and tear on your existing stash or if your just starting out w/ building a cloth diaper stash this system is a fantastic option to go with.


Pros: Fit, absorbency, colors, and ease of use!

Cons: NONE

I have two children and used prefold with our first. When baby #2 came along, I wanted something easier to use. Gro Baby is perfect for us (we have two kids in diapers - one on the low rise and one fully extended). I would recommend this diaper to any one even considering diapers - STOP throwing your diapers away, seriously, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE them!


Loads of laundry are tiny and I hear there is a new detergent coming from The Natural Baby Co.?


Pros: absorbent, grows with my baby, trim, awesome colors,certified organic!!

Cons: I don't have enough in my diaper stash right now

I am so glad I came across this diaper when researching cloth diapering options for my little one! I bought it and at first was sceptical of a one-size diaper but I can honestly say that I love it! It is so trim and yet absorbent. I can't wait for the new color Vanilla to come out! You can be sure I will be buying more.


Pros: So easy, cute, organic, one size

Cons: They only have a few colors right now

Gro Baby is the product that finally convinced us to switch back to cloth diapers.  We tried Bumgenius with baby number 1 and were horribly dissapointed and gave up.  We're now on month 3 with our Gro Baby diapers and can't say enough great things.  They fit well, take up no room in our diaper bag, and wash up so well.  The shell outers wash/dry so quickly we've often just rinsed them out by hand and air dryed them.  We love that they are organic cotton too.  I think more people would cloth diaper if they knew about a product like this!!

How to care for your Gro Baby Diapering System?

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

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

  • Your Gro Baby Shell and Soaker Pads can be washed together on warm with ½ the recommend amount of detergent
  • A second rinse will leave your diaper squeaky clean
  • While your Gro Baby Shells can be tumbled dry, we HIGHLY recommend line drying your shells. They will dry in less than two hours and will stay nice longer
  • Gro Baby Organic Soaker Pads can be tumbled dried

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



How to avoid leaks with your Gro Baby System?


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