Thirsties DUO AIO Diaper With Hemp Inserts {review and giveaway}

If you use cloth diapers, you may or may not have heard of Thirsties Baby diapers. Since I'm a rookie in the cloth diaper department, I had never heard of them but was very excited to have a chance at trying them out with Mikayla. I was sent a DUO AIO {all in one} diaper and 2 hemp inserts. 

The hemp inserts that were sent are absolutely amazing. These are the only hemp ones I own and there is nothing like these when it comes to absorbency. Other types do work, these just go that extra mile.

I chose the color Storm Cloud and a size 1. The size choice is my biggest regret as it only goes up to 18 pounds and the last time Mikayla was weighed, she was just under 16. The diaper fits her just right but I really don't want to give up using this diaper. Anyway, for the size 1, you can see that the rise in the front can be adjusted to make this diaper teeny tiny for a newborn or big enough for a {in my case} 6 month old baby. And should you prefer Aplix for the top over snaps, you can purchase those as well.

The inside of this diaper is just lovely. A soft flannel rests on baby's bum while layers of terry cloth are attached underneath. Fleece fabric is what backs the water resistant PUL fabric making this very soft.

I was hoping the above photo would give you a better idea of how thick the sewn in soaker is. It's thick enough for me that I don't need to use the hemp inserts with this diaper. And since it's sewn in, I just put the diaper on Mikayla and take it off when I'm done. There is nothing to separate.


For these photos, I put one of the hemp inserts behind the diaper's soaker to give you an idea of how thick the diaper can get with just one of those. As you can see, this diaper fits her perfectly. It comes up high enough in the front and back to not have to worry about leaks there and it's pretty sealed around the legs as well.

I like to sun dry my cloth diapers as much as possible and have noticed that I have to really wring this one out before hanging it. With a name like Thirsties, I should have expected as much. It takes a little bit longer for this diaper to dry on the line but it's worth waiting for.

Do you have any experience with Thirsties Baby diapers? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Maybe you would like to give them a try? How about a nice giveaway? :)
