Thirsties Duo Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway!

For the second day of my 1k Facebook Fans celebration, I have a great cloth diaper to giveaway! Thirsties gave me the opportunity to try their Duo Diaper. It has so many great features and it has become one of my go to diapers.

The mission of Thirsties, Inc. is to make it easy and affordable for every family to choose cloth while simultaneously investing in our local economy and sustainable business practices.

We are committed to building our business in a sustainable manner by focusing on the health of our babies and the environment. Only the best USA-sourced components are chosen for our products in order to reduce our carbon footprint, to help support domestic textile mills and our local economy, and to ensure that Thirsties diapers will last wash after wash. We are committed to creating only the highest quality products and dedicated to providing exceptional design and unparalleled performance while saving you money.

The Duo Diaper comes in two sizes, size 1 for for babies 6-18 lbs, and size 2 for babies 18-40 lbs. Thirsties knows that many "one size" diapers really don't fit newborns and this two size system allows parents to buy only two sizes to cover their baby from birth all the way to potty training. I received a size two for Connor since he is somewhere around 16 lbs and I didn't want him to outgrow it right away (yes, he's huge for an almost 4 month old!)


The rise is set at the smallest setting and I am able to get a great fit on him.

The duo diaper is different from every other pocket diaper I have used in that it has an opening on each side of the diaper allowing for easier stuffing. Instead of having to stick your hand into the pocket and work the insert in, you can simply stuff it from one side and pull the end from the other side. Also, unlike many of my other pocket diapers, the insert always agitate free in the washer. I love not having to pull the dirty insert out of the diaper before washing it.


The insert has two layers that snap together. The first is two layers of serged microfiber terry. The second is five serged layers of hemp jersey. This insert is so absorbent!


My favorite feature of this diaper is the Thirsties signature leg gussets. These extra panels of fabric around the legs prevent those nasty leaks. The first time Connor wore it, he had what normally would have been a huge blowout poop. This diaper kept it all contained. I have not had a single leak with it. That makes it a winner in my book!


I just had to include his cute fluffy bum! I love this print!

I highly recommend Thirsties Duo Diapers and I love that all of Thirsties products are made in the USA! The prints are adorable and I really want to buy more!
