Thirsties Cloth Diapers – review & giveaway

 

Thirsties Modern Cloth Diapers are proud to be made in the USA!  They hand-pick the highest quality fabrics for their adorable diapers and it shows.  Thirsties Fab Fitted diapers and Diaper Covers come in variety of sizes, while the Duo Wraps and Duo Diapers are adjustable and come in two sizes.  Because I’m thrifty, I love adjustable sizes since you never know when baby will all of a sudden grow out of whatever size of diaper you’re using (it seems to happen overnight, doesn’t it?) and I like to be able to just adjust some snaps and carry on instead of frantically looking for something that fits.

 

For review, I chose the Duo Wrap in Blackbird with snap closures and the Duo Hemp Prefold.  Because I chose a size one (6-18 lbs), I can’t put it to the test until Sprout arrives, but I’m loving all the features of the Duo Wrap already!  First is the colour selection: the colours are so vibrant, and the patterns are very unique.  If I knew we were having a girl, I think the Alice Brights would have been my pick; how adorable would that be under a little summer dress?

The Duo Wrap also has 3 size settings for the rise, so it should last from birth until around 9 months.  It also has leg gussets which are SO important for containing all the poop of the early days (or weeks, or months).

The prefold is unlike any I have seen before.  Made of a hemp jersey, so it feels like a soft t-shirt, it is actually open through the middle!  The panels are each 2 layers thick so when folded you still get 12 layers of absorbancy, but they dry in a fraction of the time of other prefolds because there isn’t a thick layer of material that needs to dry.  It also keeps the diaper very trim, even on it’s smallest setting.

I’ve never used prefolds before but this seems simple enough so I’m looking forward to giving it a try.  You just need to fold the insert in thirds, place in the Duo Wrap and put it on the baby; no pinning or complicated folds required.

Thirsties has made it easy to request a catalog and find your closest retailer so you can start your own stash!
