Thirsties Duo Wrap and Duo Fab Fitted Review and Giveaway

May 10, 2012 in cloth diaper,giveaway,review

Can I brag for a second? The cloth diapering is going really well. Since coming home from the hospital, we’ve only used one disposable diaper (and that was when I spent 3+ hours at the imaging center and she pooped in the three diapers I brought)…I digress. We are really happy with it.

Thirsties

One of our favorite brands is Thirsties. It is their mission to make it easy and affordable to anybody and everybody to use and choose cloth while investing in their local economy. They use only the best USA-sourced components are used for their products so they can reduce their carbon footprint, help support domestic textile mills and their local economy. And, they are committed to making sure Thirsties products last and last! Not only do they use USA sourced components, but they are also USA-made by women, many of whom work from the comfort and convenience of their homes.

We’ve been testing out the Duo Fab Fitted and the Duo Wrap. It’s funny, when I decided to do cloth diapers, I thought I’d only like pockets, but turns out, I really like fitteds with covers, too. They offer so much more absorbancy and surprisingly are super thin and trim…oh and super cute, too.

The Duo Fab Fitted comes in two sizes (1 and 2) and still allows for three different rise adjustments in each size for maximum fit.  It is super soft and luxurious. It’s dyed with low-impact dyes with the outer layer composed of 15% polyester, 85% cotton making it stretchy for an awesome fit.  It comes in both snaps and aplix hook-and-loop so anybody can use it.

The inner layers are composed of 100% polyester (3 layers of microfiber terry).

Just like their All-in-one, it features the tunnel design which allows for stuffing additional absorbency when needed (which we have yet to need to add anything to.).  This also allows for a better wash and quicker drying (it dries in the same time as any of my natural inserts. I typically flip it inside out half way through the drying process).

The elastic on the legs is super soft and yet still prevents all leaks. Our 12 week old is about 12-13 pounds and still has the size one on the second rise setting and all the way snapped at the waist.

Thirsties Duo Diaper Wrap

The Duo Fab Fitted is an awesome nighttime diaper for our little girl. It’s amazing how trim it is. By itself, it is not waterproof, you must pair it with a cover.

We use the Thirsties Duo Wrap. It also comes in two sizes so you can use it from birth to potty (and we still use the size two duo wrap on our 35+ pound three and half year old at night!Thirsties Duo Diaper Wrap

My favorite feature of the Duo Wrap is the leg gussets. Those babies keep EVERYTHING in (and believe me, she’s tested them!).

They fit and cover the fitted (and prefolds) so well!

It is very flexible and easy for her to move around in. It is super soft , yet waterproof. It comes in both snap and aplix hook-and-look closures. You can use the cover multiple times before washing by just wiping it clean between washings (however, Mr. Serious totally doesn’t get this, and if it’s on her, it’s going in the pail if he changes it!). It is made of 100% polyester with urethane coating and is FREE of VOC’s, PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex! (They think of everything!)

Pairing the duo wrap and duo fab fitted has been the perfect nighttime diapering option for our little girl. Combined they are still super trim and fit better than any one-sized diaper we’ve tried. It’s super absorbent, but offers the option of adding more protection either in the tunnel of the duo fab fitted or outside of it between the fitted and the duo wrap.

I love my blackbird Thirsties Duo diaper and would love to try more Thirsties products. We only use fitteds and covers at night so this would be great!

I’m new to cloth diapering and don’t have any Thirsties yet, but am ordering the duo wrap soon and I’m pretty sure I’ll love it! I’ve been trying to find a good nighttime diaper, so this would be perfect! :)
