We only went green in our lives after we found out that we were pregnant with Noah.
Even then, it is hard to say that you do everything right and have exonerated everything in your life that qualifies as harmful. So, we simply do what we can, within means, to make our lives healthier while helping the environment as well.
When Noah was about 3 months old, I began the adventure of cloth diapering. We still do not cloth diaper 100%, but still, a significant amount of our diapering is.
I love experimenting with new diapers that I have yet to try yet, so when I recently had the opportunity to receive and review the Thirsties Duo Diaper, I jumped at the opportunity.
Free of VOC’s, PVC phthalates, lead and latex, in conjunction with a hemp/cotton/polyester blend, I felt extremely comfortable using this diaper on Noah’s sensitive bottom.
The design of the diaper alone is so cute, and this is only one of several options of prints that are available in the Duo Diaper. In addition to being cute, the outer shell is completely waterproof.
Economical, as well, the diaper retails for $19.50 each for prints, yet these diapers only have 2 stages from birth to potty training, so it is easy on your wallet as well.
The microfiber fleece insert for the diaper, after washing a couple of times prior to use, was extremely absorbent and we had no issues with leaking. It was definitely different than my other inserts as it is a pocket insert that can be inserted on either side of the diaper. Very cool.
One great feature that is unique to the Thirsties brand diaper is that the insert does not need to be removed prior to washing. The agitation from the washer will pull the insert out relieving you of getting urine or poop on your hands!
The Thirsties diaper, while on, handled the rough and tumble activity of a nearly 2 year old quite well, with elastic measures that prevented leaking!
THE THIRSTIES WEBSITE
Not only are the products great, but Thirsties brand diapers also has an amazing website that provides product information and warranty guarantees. It also doubles as a blog, filled with information articles on cloth diaper care, giveaways and more!
MY FINAL THOUGHTS?
I love cloth diapers! Even more so, I love cloth diapers that are of quality materials, easy to use, easy to clean, affordable and absorbent. The Thirsties Duo Diaper provided us with all of these features!
I think the only thing that I would like to see as an option, and as previously mentioned, is the option of snaps rather than a velcro closure, as I find that they last longer through the wears and washes. Snaps, also, are harder for toddlers to undo.
It’s winner’s choice of color and size of a Thirsties Duo Diaper!
