It’s like crack, only they poop in it.

Today I’d like to talk to you about an addiction I have. A full out, over the top, no holding back addiction. It almost ruins my budget each month. My name is Diana, and I’m a cloth diaper-aholic.

Thirsties Duo Diaper, Mango, 0-9 Months
Yes, folks, this is one of the most addictive things in the world. A diaper. Not just any diaper. A Thirsties Duo Diaper. When these little pieces of heaven were made known to me, I felt the slight urge to sell off a body part, or remortgage our home, just to buy as many as I could.
I loved their wraps:
Thirsties Duo Wrap, Orchid, Size One 6-18 lbs
I have NEVER had a leak in them. And Bella is a heavy wetter with explosive poops. Takes after her Daddy, I simply don’t poop. 😉 But at night time I didn’t have enough filling to go more than a few hours without changing her. She stopped pooping but we needed more for the pee than a prefold.
Thirsties Duo Diaper has 2 inserts, one is made of hemp. We bought one, tried it at night (7+ hours) and during traveling, and can you believe it – no leaks! I fell in love right there. I ordered several more.

Now, these diapers are a Two Size – because at around 18lbs (9ish months) you’ll need to move up to the next size, which lasts until they potty train. Now, before you start thinking, “But my diaper goes from birth to potty training!” let’s ask ourselves – have you ever seen a one size diaper on a 7 pounder? Ridiculous. They look like your kid is riding a horse all day. Bowed legs, goes up half their waist… Thirsties is trim and so cute. They also have color names like Rose, Meadow, Honeydew, Storm Cloud. Just thinking of Bella wearing “Honeydew” is enough to make me buy another one.
The inserts can also be dried, which makes it wonderful for quicker use between washings, and the covers dry on a line quickly – they can be dried in the dryer but they last longer if line dried. Thirsties has a free lifetime repair warranty for stitching and velcro tabs. Also, when the 90 day replacement warranty is out, all you have to do is send your diaper to them and they repair it and send it back – free of charge!! So the resale value will stay strong – making these an even better investment.
So if you are looking for a good diaper, or thinking about trying out cloth, this is one of the best ways to go. Just be sure you’re willing to sell off things in order to feed the addiction once you start buying these. However, if you’re eyeing up that car in the driveway “After all, do we really need two cars?” then it might be time to slow it down. 🙂
