Product Info

Alva Baby nappies are an efficient and easy to use nappy, so much so they have become the best loved brand for economical reusable nappies.

They come with an absorbent 3-layer microfibre insert which stuffs inside the pocket. Additional boosters can be added for extra absorbency (we recommend Little Lamb Bamboo Boosters)

The outer layer of the nappy is a waterproof and breathable TPU. The inner layer of the nappy is a polyester suede cloth (100% man-made, not derived from animals) which helps to draw moisture away from your baby's bottom and in to the insert.

These are a great nappy stash staple- yes you might need to add an extra booster in when you need more absorbency,  but for the price that is not the end of the world.

Note, for night time nappies, we suggest having a read of our guide here

What's Inside?

Size + Care Guide

Fits from 8 -35lbs/3.5-16kg approx

To wash the Alva nappies, remove and rinse off the residuals (knock solids into toilet). Disposable liners may be used. Store in a dry pail, we recommend a hanging pail, and wash every 1-2 days.

Run a cold rinse, and machine wash (no hotter than 30ºC), do not use fabric softeners or bleach then hang dry or tumble dry on a low heat

Line drying in the sun will help to remove any staining
'Bobbling' of the inner material is not unusual and will not affect the usage or longevity of the nappy.

Why we love it

Alva nappies are a hugely popular range and The Nappy Gurus can understand why. Apart from the great choice of designs, Alva guarantee their nappies for a year! They come with a 3-layer microfibre insert and the have hip and crossover snaps to help prevent 'wing droop'

Simply place the insert inside the nappy through the open pocket in the back. You can also insert more than one insert when extra absorbency is needed. We recommend Bamboo Boosters.

Alva nappy
Monday, 2 November 2020  |  Dayna

The designs on these nappy are lovely and with the right boastering could be a great nappy for someone. Itís not really a nappy for us it didnít absorb at well as I would of liked and I now add different boasters from my mama koala collection which works well. The inside bobbled quite quickly. when on my little one sometimes the edges curl on waist line. With 3 popper each side it a bit of a faff but I suppose once you know which slots you need it wouldnít be too bad.

Bright and cheerful

This print is bright and eye-catching. It is an affordable nappy as well so is great for bulking out your stash.

Good budget option
Thursday, 22 October 2020  |  Laura

Bought a few of these to bulk out my stash while we see what works best for us. Nice enough quality and prints, but I did find the elastics leave deeper sock marks than my other nappies. Would also have been better with a bamboo booster instead of microfiber.

A great nappy!!
Wednesday, 30 September 2020  |  Lucy

These make up most of our stash and are amazing! We use these for night time as-well as another brand. The prints are gorgeous and fab when you are on a tight budget! Highly recommend

Great stash builder and beautiful
Friday, 25 September 2020  |  Dawn

these where the first brand of cloth nappies that i used 4 years ago and still use to this day iv bought a whole bunch of these lovely prints and with my wetter we boost with a baba+boo insert works a dream

Fab cover but not very absorbent
Wednesday, 16 September 2020  |  Rebecca

The designs are great and the containment of poo's has never failed so for the price they're great for building a stash.

I knocked off a star because once the baby starts to heavily wet then the inserts aren't really enough so personally we take out the Alva microfiber and put in a baba+boo bamboo insert instead.

Great for chunky or older babies
Friday, 7 August 2020  |  Joyce

These are the best best best nappies for chunkier or older babies. My 2-year old struggles with the fit of other nappies as they would leave red marks on his thighs and he would tell me they are too tight for him. The Alva nappies fit very well, the prints are gorgeous and they are cheaper than other brands - what is there not to love? The only downside are the microfibre inserts. I don't use them as they are not absorbent enough for a toddler, although they would be fine with a baby that needs changing every two hours. I stuff my Alva nappies with Diversifolds instead.

Perfect for starting out
Wednesday, 24 June 2020  |  Christina

Alva was one of the first brands we tried. They're a reallt great budget option, and once I added some extra boosters I couldn't fault them. They're a staple in our stash! Definitely recommend.

I'd give a higher rating if they came with a bamboo booster.

Great budget friendly nappy
Friday, 5 June 2020  |  Alison

Alva prints are beautiful! We have a few of these nappies in our stash and I really like them! We have never had an issues with leaking, however I do use different brand inserts inside the pocket. They are a great budget nappy and a great way to build your stash without spending a fortune!

Love them!
Saturday, 23 May 2020  |  Irene

To begin with, the prints...OMG! They are very cute and rather a big variety to choose from.
The most important is that it's budget friendly and amazing quality for what you pay.
I only put 4 stars because of the pocket opening, it's not very convenient as it is rather small.
Other than that, I totally recommend Alva nappies for people that are new to cloth and are experimenting with what suits them best.
