Thirsties Duo Diaper Review and Giveaway!! CLOSED!!!


I have heard from almost day one of researching cloth about Thirsties... and how great they are. It wasn’t until recently that I got to try one for myself!

Happy Baby!!

I was sent this absolutely adorable Thirsties Duo Diaper in the Blackbird print. It was love at first sight… but.. WAIT!!! It has aplix and not our beloved snaps!! Yep. And you know what?? It. stayed. on!! Even without pants over it!! Oh my! Have I said anything about love??

Rear shot!!

Not only did it stay on… it held in the most gosh awful mess I have seen in a while! Without staining while at it! It rinsed clean, and looked good as new after it was washed! I love this diaper. I love the little gussets designed to hold the mess in, because they work. I love the print. I love that it washes and dries quickly. I love that it is super easy to stuff. I love that the insert snap together to keep them together in the wash! No looking through a mountian of fluff to find the matching insert! How cool is that? The shell dries hanging about the dryer by the time the inserts are dry in the dryer. Not putting the shell in the dryer increases it’s life both for the PUL and the aplix.

Putter’s LOVES this diaper.. she pulls it out and tries to put it on!

I have to say though, almost ashamedly, that the Thirsties Duo Diaper did not pass the overnight test. By 2 a.m. Putter’s was up, and soaked, and crying to be changed. She makes it for three or four hours in the day with this diaper, but at night, Ms. Super Soaker soaked it. Twice.. I had to retry just to see if it was a fluke… it wasn’t!

Front Shot! Sorry about the bright light!

Side view.. nice and snug! No red marks! No Gaps!

We love everything about this diaper… I do wish it came with snaps, just because we love our snaps, but the aplix is super strong and Putters has not pulled it off once. This has become the first pocket diaper I grab after wash day. I do wish it lasted all night, but then again, not really! It’s so cute, I would hate to waste it as a night time diaper!

“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. Period.

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. Our 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. ”

You can buy Thirsties Duo Diapers, and several other Thirsties products such as their Fab Fitted’s and Duo Covers and Wraps, from their website, You can also find accessories such as pail liners, Thirsties diaper wash and pre-rinse, and wipes! You can request a catalog here and see a list of Thirsties retailers here,
