Thirsties is a small (but growing!) cloth diaper company committed to greener parenting and eco friendly solutions, not to mention 100% USA made quality! Their diapers are made by work at home mothers, and very close to their Canon City warehouse, reducing their carbon output. They donate to Miracle Diapers, a company in which one can apply for free or low cost diapers to those with financial need. Their diapers are made of a Micro Fleece that is very soft to the touch. Please take a moment to read more about them, their commitment to our planet, and how they choose to operate. You can find that here.
I recently reviewed the new Duo Wrap. I loved it. I like the fit of sized things, but the freedom of a multi-size is great too. The size of the cover can be made to fit whatever diaper I have on under the cover. It’s fantastic.
Needless to say, I was thrilled to hear that they were coming out with mult-size diapers. There are many diapers that are One-size, but most simply will not work on newborn babies. They usually kick in around 10 lbs.
Here are the two diapers. The size 1 is on the smallest setting and the size 2 is on the largest.
Here it is opened up. Check out the opening in both the front *and* back. I immediately thought to myself “boy, I bet I don’t have to take the insert out to wash!” Guess what ladies and gents!!! You don’t! I’ve been using these for a couple of weeks now, washing about every other day. It has come free and washed perfectly each and every time! Can I say “WOO HOO!”
Want another perk? Check out this double layered insert (size 1 left, size 2 right)…. One layer is microfiber, the other is hemp/cotton!!!
Yay for some natural fiber choices! (this was my wish with the last review!)
Let’s get to fit 🙂 Here is the size 1 on my youngest. She’s just under 13 lbs. I have it on the middle setting here and it is a great fit. It is SO trim. Look at that great fit around the legs 🙂
Here is the size 2, also on the middle setting, on my older daughter. She’s around 25 lbs. Great fit, fits well under her pants!
So you want to know about absorbency? Well, I’ve yet to have a problem 🙂 Both girls are actually napping in theirs right now. I haven’t had a single leak or wicking problem!
The main reason that I was so thrilled to try this in both sizes is that many diapers just don’t have enough absorbency for older kids. This one has done great for me. My daughter is a heavy wetter too. The great thing is that since the inserts in this are pretty thin, you can easily add more to it. I tossed in a hemp insert and used this overnight; it worked great.
What don’t I like? Well, nothing really. It works great, fits great and I love that it is not a completely synthetic insert. That’s a big plus for me. I would happy to have more of these. I think that the largest size will last longer for my daughter than some other diapers because of the nice long rise.
The giveaway portion is over 🙂 Thank you to everyone that participated!
