I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review.
I have mentioned on the blog several times that pocket diapers just aren't my thing anymore, especially now that Dub is older and we should be (knock on wood) in the home stretch of cloth diapers. I want easy, I don't want to unstuff and stuff diapers especially when they're dirty. For over a year now I have been steadily gravitating to AI2s and covers.
One cover that I've wanted to try for years but just never did for some odd reason is the Thirsties Duo Wrap. I have used both the (no longer made) Duo diaper and AIO and really love the quality and performance. Now I am wondering WHY I haven't tried the wrap before.
A look at the Thirsties Duo Wrap and hemp prefold:
I received a size two Duo Wrap in Scottish Storm, a print that I have been coveting for a few years now, along with a size two Duo Prefold to review. Why is it called a Duo? Because it has two sizes to give you a wider size range than typical "one size" diapers.
The Size one Duo Wrap fits babies from about 6-18 pounds and the size two fits babies from about 18-40 pounds where a typical "one size" diaper will fit from about 10-35 pounds.
The Duo Wrap has the typical Thirsties double leg gussets to contain messes, which I LOVE.
The Duo Prefold is made of super soft hemp jersey (knitted in the USA) that is naturally antimicrobial. It is 25% more absorbent than pure cotton, more trim, and has seams sewn it for easy folding.

I always use the trifold and lay them inside the cover like an insert.
The prefold is sewn together in a way that the middle is completely open which means that they dry faster than conventional prefolds. Genius.
My model is 3 years and 11 months old, about 37 pounds and 3'3" tall. As you can see the diaper has a great fit on the waist with some room to grow (even though, honestly, I'm hoping that he won't need too much more room to grow!). The elastic on the front panel allows for an even better fit on the waist.
The double legs gussets in action. These gussets fit nice and snug on the legs so that even the messiest of older toddler messes stay contained within the cover. I can't say that about the majority of our diapers anymore.
Nice fit on the bum, no sagging. Really, how cute is this print?
The diaper is nice and trim with the hemp prefold.
I love the Thirsties Duo Wrap and I am kicking myself for not getting some sooner! This cover has performed perfectly without a single leak. I love the fit and the quality and if we weren't trying really hard to get Mr. Dub potty trained I would buy several more of these! I highly recommend the Thirsties Duo Wrap and think you will love it, too.
You can buy a Duo Wrap for $13.25 and a hemp prefold for $8.00 from Thirsties' website or from several of your favorite retailers such as (affiliate links) Diaper Junction, Sweetbottoms Baby, and Nicki's Diapers (which are 10% off AND free shipping!)
