I love that one. Mine's a QQ baby so she wears it on the smallest setting :shock:

Is the 4.0 the square-tab with gussets in the lining? If so, I don't like them. The other kind fits much better.

Right now mine are in a dresser drawer. Once I clean out DDs closet I'll put them
On a shelf. But she's got too many clothes right now so I need to make room for baby's clothes too.

Yeah they are square tab with the double gusset. I really tight that I would like them much better than the 3.0 and I just got them all in the mail yesterday and first impressions are much better for the 3.0! I will have to see how they fit & perform before I decide which ones to order more of

Another alva question- how donyounladies like their inserts? I'm thinking of ordering 20 diapers with 40 inserts so I have extra to use for doublers. I haven't gotten to use any of the diapers I've ordered yet but I think that system would work best for us. I'm not as crazy about the flip system as I thought I would be but they might be useful down the road. I like the double gussets on the alva 4.0 but I'm not liking the envelope opening to stuff the pocket. Should I just try what I have then decide? Or should I chance it and order the 20 alvas and just sell them off if we dot like them later on?

Looks like I'll be handwashing today. Long story short, I've been using my parents' washing machine and I can't this weekend. Not only that, but I can't make it to a laundromat because my grandma and I are being forced to watch my brother so my parents can get drunk. I think I'll be doing a LOT of handwashing.
