Thirsties Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Thirsties, we recently had the chance to review a cool Duo Diaper:


About Thirsties:
"Thirsties line of cloth diapers were launched in 2004 in an effort to offer sustainably produced and quality designed diapers at affordable prices. Our mission is to make it easy and attainable for every family to choose cloth while simultaneously investing in our local economy and sustainable business practices about. We are very proud of the fact that all of our products are USA-made by a group of very talented women, many of whom work in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Thanks to the support of our dedicated customers, we are celebrating the direct development of 12 new jobs in our area-that's putting bread on the table for families right here in Colorado! This represents incredible and exciting growth in such shaky economic times and we have you and your support to thank! We use only the best of USA-sourced components in order to reduce our carbon footprint, to help support domestic textile mills, and to ensure your diapers will last wash after wash. Each and every aspect of the design of our diapers is carefully considered and all fabric and components are vigilantly selected as the very best. Thirsties cloth diapers are well-known as providing the very best in comfort and leak-proof cloth diapering. Our goal of becoming Carbon Neutral is well underway! We have installed a behemoth of a solar panel array, with a configuration that at full-capacity will produce enough electricity to cover more than all of the business' needs-11 clean, sustainable, photovoltaic Kilowatts. This equates to a total CO2 reduction of 200 tons, as if we are planting over 7700 trees! We honestly believe that we are in the best possible business. We believe this because you share in our values for happy and healthy baby beginnings, and by virtue of such you continue the fight for sound futures. Duo Diaper 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!
Sleeve design for easy stuffing & easy cleaning
Leg gussets provide superior protection against leaks
Microfiber terry & hemp combo insert for optimal absorption; 7 layers in all!
Use from birth-to-potty and save $1400 over disposables!
Sizing:
size one:6-18 lbs (3-8 kg)0-9 months
size two:18-40 lbs (8-18 kg)9-36 months
Details: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!
Similar in feel and fit as our best selling Duo Wrap, 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. Our Duo Inserts provide double the duty as well! Thirsties' specialty inserts feature two layers of serged microfiber terry snapped together with five serged layers of hemp jersey; seven thirsty layers in all! Microfiber terry is a fast absorber designed to rest closest to your baby's skin (beneath the microfleece sleeve); hemp is a stable absorber and pairs perfectly behind the microfiber terry to add more absorbency and to prevent compression leaking."
What we thought: We loved our Duo Diaper! It was super absorbent and we haven't had any problems with leakage. We haven't had any instances of diaper rash either. We have even used this diaper overnight and it has worked wonderfully! We got a size 2 for 21 month old D and it fit perfectly. The Duo Diaper is adjustable so that 2 sizes will get your little one from birth through potty training and that is impressive! The diaper seemed comfy and every component was soft and cushy to the touch. I loved the variety of color and print choices. The Duo Diaper is also super easy to care for and held up great to machine washing and drying. If you are cloth diapering your little one, we would recommend Thirsties...while they may seem a little pricey, but in the long run they are worth it!! ABCD Diaries gives the Thirsties Duo Diaper an A+!
