If you cloth diaper, chances are you have a diaper company you tend to go back to again and again. For me, that is Thirsties.
The majority of my cloth diapering stash is prefolds and covers, and most of my covers are Thirsties. I love the ease of use, double gusset, and fun colors. When I learned we weren’t going to use a cloth diaper service with this baby I really wanted to expand my stash to include some AIO and pocket diapers.
I own two Thirsties Duo Diapers, which I think are just a great option for cloth diapering newborns. I was excited to check out the Thirsties Duo All-In-One as well.
The Duo AIO is a very trim diaper that comes in two sizes: size one for babies 6-1 8 lbs (0-9months) and size two 18-40 lbs (9-36 months). The diaper has a three layer microfiber insert sewn right into the diaper that can absorb 7 times it’s weight in liquid. Thirsties left a “tunnel” beneath the insert to allow for easy washing, cleaning, and drying. Plus this allows you to add extra inserts if you need to.
My little man was pretty much able to fit in this diaper from the day we brought him home.
Baby D is 2 weeks old in this picture and 9lbs 8ozs.
We were able to get a nice tight fit all around his legs and belly, better as he chunked out with age. I really like how trim the diaper was too.
However, I found that if this diaper was on for more than 30 minutes to an hour, my son would soak out of the top. At first I thought it was because he was a bit skinny or he was maybe pointed the wrong way. When it kept happening I contacted Thristies customer service. They told me what I suspected, and that was that I had a heavy wetter. It was especially clear once I explained that the front of the insert was soaked, but the back was still dry. Since most of his soaking is near the front, they said we could try a hemp insert to see if that fixed the problem.
After boiling the inserts for 30 minutes, and washing them we tossed on into the tunnel of the diaper design. Wouldn’t you know we didn’t have any more soaking through!
At 11 weeks we have one happy Thirsties loving baby!
Thirsties Duo AIO is a pretty good diaper. I still do prefer the Duo Diaper to the all-in-one because of the double gussets and great fit. However, this diaper is usually always in our diaper bag for quick changes when we are out and about, and when we have someone care for Baby D, we put this diaper on top as it is really easy caregivers to use!
The Thirsties Duo All-In-One comes in aplix and snaps and a variety of colors and prints. The diaper retails for $15.75 for solids and $16.75 for prints.
