Thirsties Duo Wraps - Cloth Diaper
Thirsties Duo Wraps are easy to use and easier on your wallet. The adjustable rise of this wrap design means one size will last twice as long. In fact, only two sizes will cover your baby from birth all the way to potty-learning (size 1 sold separately). Similar in feel to our best-selling Diaper Cover, Thirsties Duo Wraps are completely waterproof yet remain breathable, pliable, and very comfortable for your baby's delicate skin. Durable and pliable snap closures provide a secure fit at every diaper change. Leg gussets provide advanced leak-proof protection and bindings are super-soft against baby skin. Thirsties Duo Wraps are a very trim fitting cover. They are the preferred wrap for trifolded prefold diapers and over trim fitted diapers, such as our Fab Fitted diapers. For bulkier systems and/or for nighttime double stuffing, we recommend Thirsties Diaper Cover, which has a roomier fit. Made in the United States.

I'm new to cloth diapering and have decided to do the good old fashioned prefold method. So when I had to get the covers, I purchased a couple of each of the most popular brands, only going based on other people's reviews. I absolutely love these Thirsties. I have Imse Vimse, Little Beetle, Bumkins, and Kissaluv Wool covers along with the Thirsties. So far, these are the only covers that are true to size and actually fit my daughter when she was a newborn. My girl was 7lbs2oz when born and these covers were perfect for that time when you have to be careful of the umbilical cord. I purchased newborn sizes in other brands and they were huge. The thirsties fit right below her belly button to keep from rubbing up against it. I haven't had any leaks or blow outs in these either, even with the explosive BM's that newborns have in the first few months. Even when the prefold has been completely soaked, the cover has held up great. The leg gussets are also a plus in preventing leaks. I'll be purchasing more of these, especially since they're so inexpensive.

Update after 6 months of use:
These are still great economical covers, but they definitely don't go up to 18lbs. My daughter is now 15lbs and is in the 50th percentile for weight and height, and she has just outgrown these. But I must say that that isn't bad considering all of these sizes are approximate and most of the other covers I've been using hasn't been even close to their size ranges. She could still wear them just fine, but I've moved up in size in her prefold due to blowouts for every BM she had, and the cover doesn't fit with it. Still a great cover. I'll just need to get the next size up. But to use a cover, literally from birth to 6 months, is not bad for the price.

Full Disclosure: I have not used other cloth diaper systems. I simply chose this one after much research and am very happy with the product.

This review is coming from a father's perspective, which I imagine is less common and may therefore be useful for some. The whole baby thing can be pretty overwhelming for first time parents (or even seasoned veterans), so my wife left the research of diaper options up to me. After a lot of time studying up, I decided the Thirsties Duo Wrap Snap was the best option for the following reasons:

+ The 2 piece design (cloth tri-fold with outer waterproof cover) allows the covers to be reused at times whereas the fancier insert design requires a change of both the insert and the diaper cover at each changing. This allows for savings in money (fewer components need to be purchased) as well as time (easier to separate and wash) and weight (fewer components need to be lugged around in a diaper bag).

+ The snaps are both more secure and longer lasting than the Velcro versions. Snaps do not deteriorate in the wash- Velcro does.

+ Thirsties seemed to have a better reputation and longer history with the product than other brands (though I know this is not always indicative of a better product).

We therefore placed the Duo Wrap on our registry (Target) and purchased several more from Amazon. The tri-fold/cover systems seem to be quite a bit cheaper than the insert systems, so that was an added bonus. Overall we are very happy with the product. The Thirsties hold up much better to blow outs than disposable diapers (in layman terms, they don't leak liquid poo as often), but as many have suggested, I wouldn't use them until a few weeks after your baby is born as the child's first bowel movements will be the consistency and color of road tar and is near impossible to clean out. Once the breast milk flushes the child out and he/she starts pooping nice shades of yellows and greens near the consistency of tomato soup, swap over to the cloth diapers. Until then, disposables are your friend.

The downside of the Thirsties (as with all cloth diaper systems) are as follows:

- Larger up front cost. This of course is balanced in the long run and eventually starts saving you money compared to disposables.

- Bulk. Cloth diaper systems are bulkier than disposables. This isn't a huge deal, but it can make some onesies difficult to put on at times as the diaper puts considerable more junk in the trunk of a baby. This also adds more weight to a diaper bag. On the bright side, cloth diaper systems make for cute clothing, so you can forgo bottoms and just slap a top on your baby when they need to look presentable. I like this as it cuts down on poop-stained clothes I need to wash in the event of those pesky nuclear assplosions.

- Washing. Come on- no one is going to claim they prefer throwing a diaper in the wash as opposed to the trash can. But it isn't as difficult or disgusting as it sounds. You'll be surprised how adorable you find your child's bodily fluids (I haven't experienced the solids yet, so my tune may change). If you breast feed, the smell is actually not bad at all.

All in all, I highly recommend the Thirsties Duo Wrap Snaps. Best bang for your buck and a highly reliable system that has a pretty easy learning curve.
