I love that Thirsties offers so many different types of diapers, and they are expanding their accessory line too. (Have you heard about their new Booty Love cloth diaper safe ointment?) Their prints and colors are super cute and the materials are high quality. As our stash is growing to include more fitteds and pockets, I reached out to the most versatile diaper company I know. Thirsties was very happy to send me a Duo Fab Fitted Diaper system for review.
Sizing. Thirsties Cloth Diapers and Accessories has a unique sizing system called the "Duo" size. Instead of needing 3-4 different size diapers for your baby, you can rest assured that their two sizes will fit baby newborn through potty training. I can vouch for the fact that size 1 did fit G as a newborn, and I'm sure they'll fit her until we potty train. She wore her size 1 Duo wraps for 8 months and has only recently switched to the size 2 Duo sizes. She would probably still be wearing size 1 Duos, but her cute little chubby thighs needed more room.

Ease of Use. These diapers are really easy to use! Set the rise snaps on your preferred setting and forget about it until baby grows. I've also got our waist settings memorized--but that isn't even necessary if you opt for the Aplix closure. I prefer snaps so that grabby-handed G can't undo her diaper, but I do have experience with Thirsties' Aplix from when she was a newborn. It's definitely high quality and was still in like-new condition after 4 months of heavy use. The only downside to a fitted diaper is that I have to put two things on G during a diaper change--put the upside to that is that the cover can be used several times before needing washed. For night time, put the Fab Fitted on baby. Place a hemp insert in the DuoWrap and the put the cover/insert combo on top of that

Green Company & Made in America. I knew Thirsties was focused on sustainability (what cloth diaper company isn't?), but I realized just how deep it went when I received my diaper in a fancy "EcoEnclose" mailing package that breaks down in landfills! They have local (Colorado) work-at-home-moms sew many of their products, and everything they do is focused on minimizing fuel-use. Their warehouse is 100% wind-powered!
You can read all of Thirsties' green pride points on their website.
"We do source all our components for our diapers from the US. The only thing we cannot buy locally is the Hemp/Cotton but we do have it knit here in the US. All our diapers are sewn locally and many by work at home moms. We encourage all our customers to buy local and help support their own economies!" - Jessica, Thirsties Customer Support
Check out Thirsties' website to request or download the current catalog. I got one with my diaper, and I have to tell you, there is something so fun about browsing fluff on paper (especially when it's VOC free and made from post-consumer content)!
You can purchase Thirsties diapers from many retailers; see their "where to buy" tab. Thirsties' also has an active Facebook Page, here.
