I began using Thirsties way back in 2008 when my son was born. We used their XS covers and prefolds and they worked great. Since then they have introduced their dual size line up. I have already reviewed their Duo Diaper, and now I am reviewing their Duo fitted and Duo Wrap which was sent by Madison Organics.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩ Fitteds seem intimidating to many because they often seem to have a huge array of snaps, maybe because the “popular” fitted out there is snap city. There is a snaps version of the Duo fitted but it is super simple, and since the fitted has give, it goes on like butter. They also have a velcro version. Same for the cover, which comes in both snaps or velcro and is simple to use. They both use a snap down rise with 3 options. You will likely have it sized already before it goes in the baby so it isn’t an issue.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩ The Duo fitted is 17 and the wraps are 12.25. Usually you only need 4-6 covers, and around 12-26 fitteds depending on the age of your baby. I think a whole stash of these would be a little pricey but having a few for night time would be a great idea.
Performance ✩✩✩✩✩ Can I say, LOVE? Oh my, I love these fitteds and I didn’t expect that. I knew they would work, but I didn’t think they would become my new favorite overnight diaper! With no extra stuffing these hold up all night (usually 10-12 hours) and the cover keeps everything in.
Fit ✩✩✩✩Since both the fitted and the cover and dual sized my son should have plenty of room left to grow. They do say they begin fitting at 18 pounds but my son is 17 pounds and needs to be on the middle rise snap. As I said in the video, the fitted looks extremely comfortable and it comforms to his tummy so well! The cover doesn’t leave any red marks or show other signs of discomfort.
Overall- Both the fitted and the wrap are easy to use, not too bulky compared to many other combinations on the market. The innovative way the soaker is sewn in makes for no bulk when changing the rise settings. The fitted does take longer to dry than one dryer cycle.
