Im ranting on here because my husband has no idea about what im talking about. Lol. Anywho... I know there are major inconsistencies with alva baby size wise. But I didnt realize the PUL would have them too! I have some alva baby diapers that just came in that look like they're lined with a produce bag from a grocery store! wth?!

hmmm Alvas are supposed to be one of the better brands of the "china cheapies" I have only one Alva so far, as I building my stash slowly, the PUL looks the very same as on my econobum covers and bumgenius I got from a cloth diaper bank that loans out diapers.
I hope it holds up for you, good luck. I have a babyland diaper that had HORRIBLE reviews about the PUL delaminating after just a couple of washes, my son has worn it several times and it still looks great! I think it can be hit or miss with some of these cheaper brands.

Yes a def hit and miss on mine. :(
I have some that came in perfect and some that came in like crap. I just washed them and they sound like a crinkled chip bag.

I had a few newborn sized ones that didnt have this problem so I decided to go with there one size ones and order directly from Alva. I had one minky print, 2 solid black, and reds that came in this way. The other minky and solids came in just fine...

if it has delaminated, I think they will send you some replacement ones, I have heard good things about their customer service. It's worth a try to contact them and see what they can do for you.
