Thirsties Duo Diaper Review & Giveaway


A diapering system that grows with your baby!
I am a fan of one size diapers, I love them. When I heard about the new Thirsties Duo Diaper I was really interested in trying them. Instead of one size, you have two sizes that work from birth to potty. The Duo Diaper is a 2 part system that really fits from birth to potty! You can request a catalog (or view it online) on the Thirsties website, it is filled with detailed information about all their products and helpful tips on cloth diapering.

About the Duo Diaper!
The Duo Diaper is a two part diapering system that will truly fit from birth to potty. Size One fits 6-18 lbs (0-9 months) and Size Two fits 18-40 lbs (9-36+months). The Duo Diaper will fit better than a One Size diaper because of the two different sizes that allow you to fit from newborn to toddler more accurately. You will not have a bulky diaper during the newborn stage or a too small diaper during the toddler stage. Each diaper has three separate rows of snaps to get the perfect fit.

The Duo Diaper features a completely waterproof outside that is still soft and pliable. The inner diaper is constructed with a sleeve system opened on both ends that allows the inserts to agitate out during washing. The inserts are two separate inserts that snap together and are made from microfiber terry and hemp.

Other Features:

· A two-piece diapering system combining an absorbent insert and a waterproof sleeve diaper

· An adjustable rise for extended use to suit your growing baby

· Two sizes will fit from birth-to-potty

· Leg gussets provide superior protection against leaks

· Pliable and breathable in 8 fun colors!

Ethan's Thirsties Duo Diaper Experience!
I have always heard positive comments from other moms about how they loved Thirsties covers, but I had never tried any of the Thirsties products. I was excited when I got the opportunity from Thirsties to review the brand new Duo Diaper! I am a huge fan of one size diapers, but the concept of the Duo Diaper really had me interested. Having two sizes meant no bulky newborn diapers and that it would fit until potty trained.

I picked a Size 2 out the beautiful mango color for Ethan. The first thing I notice about the Duo Diaper is the great quality of the diaper and the awesome construction. I can tell they really use top of the line materials for their diapers and it is a diaper that is going to last a long time.

Another aspect of the diaper that really impressed me are the inserts and the sleeve system. The inserts are super soft and they snap together which means no sliding around while you are stuffing your diaper. The sleeve system also allows the insert to agitate out in the wash. Did it do it?? Yes! With these I don't have to remind my husband to take the inserts out of the diaper before he puts it in the pail! Am I the only one that has this problem?? The inserts fit perfectly into the diaper. They don't curl up on the sides or out one of the ends because it's too large. Since the inserts are a microfiber terry/hemp combo they absorb a lot and makes the diaper very trim and less bulky.

The most wonderful feature about the Duo Diaper are the leg gussets. Ethan is super skinny and the leg gussets keep anything from gaping. I don't have to worry about leaks at all.

So how'd the diaper test out? The first time Ethan wore the Duo Diaper I really put it to the test, he wore it for almost 4 hours. The inserts were completely soaked, but no wicking, no leaks!

Overall, I am extremely impressed with the Duo Diaper. I think I'm ready to have another baby just so I can try out the Size 1...ok, well maybe not yet ;-)
