Thirsties Review and Giveaway Aug 18, 2010



Did you know that your baby will roughly go though an astonishing 6000 diaper changes from birth to potty. That is Twenty times more raw materials and sixty times more solid waste, like crude oil and wood pulp, that are consumed and disposed of in the manufacturing of disposable diapers. 
 At Thirsties they know the cost of diapering your child!
"Thirsties line of cloth diapers were launched in 2004 in an effort to sustainably produce and quality design diapers at affordable prices. Their mission is to make it easy and attainable for every family to choose cloth while simultaneously inverting in our local economy and sustainable business practices"
Thirsties products are USA-made by a group of very talented women, many of whom work in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. The warehouse is a renovated 1920's feed store in downtown Cañon City, Colorado. Cañon City is a small town nestled up against the south-eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  At Thirsties they use only the best of USA -sourced components in order to offer you the very best diaper. 
 Thirsties Cloth Diapering line Consists of Duo-Wrap, Pocket AIO V2, Diapers Covers , Fab Fitted& Accessories such as Fab Wipes, Fab Doublers, Hemp inserts, and more
 I have worked with Thirsties before on Organic Girl and I have always been so pleased with the items I have been sent for Review. This time around I was really thrilled to be sent the new Thirsties® Duo Diaper for Review.   The new prints Thristies offer are so cute and it was a hard choice.  In the end I went with Alice Brights for Emma!
Thirsties® Duo Diapers are easy to use and even easier on your wallet!  The adjustable rise of this diaper design means one size will last twice as long.  In fact, you'll only need two sizes to cover your baby from birth all the way to potty-learning. How cool is that????
Similar in feel and fit as their best selling Duo Wrap, Thirsties® Duo Diapers are completely waterproof yet remain breathable, pliable, and very comfortable for your baby’s delicate skin. The ultra-soft microfleece liner on the inside protects baby’s skin from wetness and also resists staining.  The handy sleeve design features openings on both sides of the diaper between the microfleece and waterproof layer.  The duo openings featured in Thirsties® Duo Diaper enable easy insert stuffing from either side of the diaper and also make for easy cleaning.  There is no need to remove the soiled inserts when washing -- your hands will remain clean!  Simply toss your soiled Thirsties® Duo Diaper in the laundry and the inserts will agitate free from the diaper in the washing machine.
duo diapers grow with your baby!
Sizing:
size one:

6-18 lbs (3-8 kg)
0-9 months
size two:
18-40 lbs (8-18 kg)
9-36 months
Their Duo Inserts provide double the duty as well! Thirsties' specialty inserts feature two layers of serged microfiber terry snapped together with five serged layers of hemp jersey; seven thirsty layers in all! Microfiber terry is a fast absorber designed to rest closest to your baby's skin (beneath the microfleece sleeve); hemp is a stable absorber and pairs perfectly behind the microfiber terry to add more absorbency and to prevent compression leaking.
By the way...did you know that Thirsties' new hemp jersey is like no other on the market!?! You will find this hemp is thicker, softer, and holds-up better than any other on the market.  I have been washing one of Emma's duo-dipaer inserts I recieved about 8  months back and it still looks great and yep still absorbs amazing.
Thirsties Duo Diapers are really easy to use.  Simply stuff the insert in the sleeve of the diaper and wrap around your baby. The durable hook-and-loop closures of Thirsties Duo Diaper provide a perfect and secure fit at every diaper change. Thirsties' signature leg gussets provide advanced leak-proof protection and our bindings are super soft against your baby's skin. Both Duo sizes offer convenient fold-over laundry tabs to protect your hook-and-loop closures from trapping lint in the wash. 
Each of the two sizes of Thirsties Duo Diaper feature three rows of snaps to adjust the rise to your baby's shape; it really is like having THREE sizes in one. Pairing such adjustability in rise with our signature leg gussets make this diaper the most versatile on the market. Whether your baby is tall or short, thin or chunky, this cover will keep those messes contained! 
 Thirsties Duo Diaper is a wonderful diaper to use. The diaper is well designed and  fits Emma very well.   I like that can put this Duo Diaper on knowing she will be comfortable and not leak out. That is a very important feature when you have a toddler as busy as Emma!!
