Thirsties New Duo Diaper Review and Giveaway (CLOSED at 6pm EST)


REVIEW:
For a mom who is just learning to cloth diaper and learning the ins and outs, trust me when I say that I was so excited to learn that Thirsties was going to send me their New Duo Diaper to try out. She sent me one to try on both DD2 before she is completely potty trained and DD3, so I could test out both sizes, size 1 and 2. The diapers grow with your baby from baby to toddler. And the best part, there are only two sizes.
Sizing Details:
Size One
6-18 lbs (3-8 kg) 0-9 months

Size Two
18-40 lbs (8-18 kg) 9-36+ months

Feature Details:

· 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!
· Sleeve design for easy stuffing & easy cleaning
· Microfiber terry & hemp combo insert for optimal absorption; 7 layers in all!
· Use from birth-to-potty and save $1400 over disposables!

Needless to say, I was super excited about trying this diaper not only because I am new to cloth diapering, but because I have heard so many good things about this diaper.

When the diapers arrived, I tore into the bag with excitement and was so excited to see such beautiful diapers.

The inserts were of such high quality and I couldn't believe how super soft that they were. There are snaps for double protection.

Now it was time to wash them three times to rid the Hemp of the natural oils and fluffy for absorbency. They washed wonderfully and were just as soft when they were done as when I first got them.

Time to put the diaper to the test.

We tested these diapers during the day where either would only wear them for about 2-3 hours depending on the situation and then tested the diaper at night where DD2 slept all night long and DD3 slept anywhere from 4-6 hours at night at a time. As for the fit for them both, was great. They fit great and both girls seemed comfortable and could move around with ease.
So, I know you want to know how did these dipes hold up to the test for during the day and at night. Well, I have to tell you these diapers are amazing. No leaking and no wicking. Both girls were able to wear the Thirsties Duo Diaper and there not be any leaking. Secondly, DD3 is breastfed and you all know sometimes they have blowouts, and she had a blowout in this dipe and it also passed the test.
I certainly recommend this diaper to others and especially to someone when I hear they have problems with their diaper leaking at night. I was so excited that this diaper passed that test.

I love the thirsties duo wrap! The size 2 fits both my 8 month old daughter and 2 1/2 year old son so it's very economical. I'd love to try the duo diaper as well.

While I love the orchid color, I usually go with gender neutral to fit both of my kids so I'd have to say I love the mango color.

Rachel said...

I use prefolds with thirsties covers exclusively. Thirsties covers saved me from quitting on cloth diapering, I never have leaks or red marks, the PUL is so soft and not something that will stick to baby's skin or make them sweat... they are the best thing your money can buy when cloth diapering. I'd love to have a duo diaper to try cause after 2 years my DH still struggles using cloth. I have two in diapers a newborn and a 18 month old. I'd love a size 2 Honeydew to see how it did for an overnight :)

Kre8ive said...

The Duo, looks easy for a first timer to use. The Storm Cloud color looks like it would look awesome on little Perrin!!

Hannah said...

I like the Duo Wrap cover. The bigger size fits my 5 month old even though he's just average sized, so I think it will fit him for a long time.

I think my favorite product they have is the duo diaper. I like that I wouldn't have to remove the insert before washing, it will come out in the wash because of the sleeve design. I like that.

Lyn said...

I think my two fav colors are the honeydew and storm cloud. I think honeydew wins out though because it is neutral enough for a boy (which I have now) and hopefully a little girl in the future. :)
