Thirsties Duo Diaper Review and Giveaway!

Have I told you how much I love cloth diapers? ;-) Well, I do! And I was super excited when Thirsties offered me the chance to try the duo diaper!

Thirsties is a small (but growing!) cloth diaper company committed to greener parenting and eco friendly solutions, not to mention 100% USA made quality! Their diapers are made by work at home mothers, and very close to their Canon City warehouse, reducing their carbon output. They donate to Miracle Diapers, a company in which one can apply for free or low cost diapers to those with financial need. Their diapers are made of a Micro Fleece that is very soft to the touch. If you would like to read more about them, their commitment to our planet, and how they choose to operate, go here: http://thirstiesbaby.com/about.htm

The duo diapers come in two sizes. Size one fits 6-18lbs, and size 2 fits 18-40lbs. I got the size two, since Jack is now 19 pounds.

When it came in the mail it was wrapped so cute! It made me smile!


After washing it, I tried it on Jack and it fit him perfectly on the smallest size.


I really like the leg gussets. They are designed to help protect against leaks, and it works! Jack has skinny legs, so sometimes it is hard to get a good fit on the legs. The gussets on these make them fit him great!


Plus, the diaper is just adorable! The color is so bright and vibrant!


But, how did they perform?
I loved them! I tried them during the day for a couple hours (including a nap) and then overnight. Every time, they have worked great! I have not had any leaks, and they don't leave red marks like some other diapers.

I will definitely get more of these diapers if I have the chance! They are quickly becoming a favorite!

So, you want to get some for yourself? You can find a list of Retailers here.
