Amazing absorbency and no leaks!

  • Jan 16, 2010
I absolutely love love love the Duo Diaper, I had to rave about it here! It combines the ease and convenience of a pocket diaper with the leak proof protection of the Thirsties Fab Fitted and Duo Wrap. Thirsties sent us one Duo Diaper in size two to try on our 11 month old, 19 pound baby girl. 

I have tried one-size diapers and while they are OK, they will always be a little big on a newborn and a little small on a two year old. The Duo Diaper solves that issue with two perfect sizes. Size one fits 6-18 pounds and size two is for 18-40 pounds. The size two fits our 19 pound girl perfectly with the second snap setting, she has chubby thighs :) With just two Duo Diapers you are essentially getting six sizes that grow with your baby.

PERFORMANCE: The Duo Diaper is just amazing when it comes to absorbency and leak prevention, I can't emphasize that enough! To illustrate, I save this diaper for when we leave the house because it is consistent and never fails. No matter what kind of mess might be inside that diaper, it stays inside the diaper. Many other cloth diapers have a similar pocket design, but fleece that is sewn to the very edge of the inside leg opening. When the fleece is wet at the edges and makes contact with clothing it often gets the clothes wet. The fleece inside the Duo Diaper on the other hand stops short of the edges and the leg gusset prevents any leakage. I think this is genius! While with other cloth diapers we've had a leak or two, we've had none with the Duo Diaper. I am so in love with it that I dream of replacing all of our diapers with these... Probably not in this lifetime :)

EASE OF USE: The Duo Diaper is really easy to use and wash. The velcro makes it as easy and convenient as disposables, a lot cuter for sure though! The babysitter or hubby will not mind this one at all. Because it is a pocket diaper it also dries a lot faster than an AIO (all in one) or the Thirsties Fab Fitted. I also like that when I throw them in the wash I don't need to secure two sets of velcro tabs like on the Fab Fitted and Duo Wrap. 

VALUE: Here is what I really love about the Duo Diaper: just two sizes from birth to potty. That results in a perfect fit both on a newborn and a toddler and only two sizes. Now if you have several babies back to back this is perfect because when one size is outgrown by a toddler it can be passed on to the next baby. Talk about getting the biggest bang for your buck!

The Duo Diaper costs $18.50, which is about average for cloth diapers - but this is not your average diaper, so consider it a really great deal! Plus it comes with a microfiber and a hemp insert so you can customize absorbency as needed. By the way, these diapers are made in the US!

Thank you Paul! We didn't actually start out with cloth diapers, but we switched when she was 7 months old and I am very glad we did! I just wrote a review on something Eco-friendly that you could actually use! Check out the Croftgate USA review, I think you'll like it :) You can even get a free sample of it to try yourself!

All of the best cloth diapers started out as a mom's vision and solution to ill or non-fitting cloth diapers and covers. The president and founder, Erin, started Thirstie's when she couldn't find a diaper cover that suited her baby's needs. The first covers were patterned, cut, and sewn at her dining room table with her secondhand sewing machine. After 18 months of testing and tweaking the covers were finally released to the public and this great company was born.   All of Thirstie's diapers …

Without an insert it works great as a swim diaper too! Easy on/off and easy to wash. Plus a PERFECT little beach bum fit!
