excellent cloth diaper option
I’ve been CD-ing for three years, and I wish I’d started using these wrap snap covers earlier! I started out with pocket diapers because I thought they would be easier, but I have now changed my mind. I use tri-fold inserts with these. They don’t leak unless the soaker is absolutely saturated, and I love that I am not spending time stuffing pockets any more. I’m also thrilled to have completely velcro-free multi-size covers, and these fit both my 10mo and my tall 2yo beautifully.
Really bulky with a flat-fold diaper on a newborn.
I got a couple of these to use with flat-fold diapers until my newborn would fit into the all-in-one diapers we bought. Pretty bulky for a newborn, mine was 8.5 pounds when we brought him home. I can’t ever see using these on a 6 pound baby because he is now almost 12 lbs and using the smallest setting. They do leak if you don’t change the flat fold after one wetting. My baby is a heavy wetter and so he leaks through almost every diaper in less than 3 hrs. I would not use over night ever.
Not for us. The material seemed like it would make my baby sweat and it did not seem sturdy. I returned. The print was cute.
not so easy to use
I saw this and though it would be easy to use.I was wrong. It not only bunches and leaks but my son, which is big for his age out grow this in 2 months. I would not buy this again or give it as a gift.
Great diaper cover and most bang for your buck
I’m new to cloth diapering and have decided to do the good old fashioned prefold method. So when I had to get the covers, I purchased a couple of each of the most popular brands, only going based on other people’s reviews. I absolutely love these Thirsties. I have Imse Vimse, Little Beetle, Bumkins, and Kissaluv Wool covers along with the Thirsties. So far, these are the only covers that are true to size and actually fit my daughter when she was a newborn. My girl was 7lbs2oz when born and these covers were perfect for that time when you have to be careful of the umbilical cord. I purchased newborn sizes in other brands and they were huge. The thirsties fit right below her belly button to keep from rubbing up against it. I haven’t had any leaks or blow outs in these either, even with the explosive BM’s that newborns have in the first few months. Even when the prefold has been completely soaked, the cover has held up great. The leg gussets are also a plus in preventing leaks. I’ll be purchasing more of these, especially since they’re so inexpensive.Update after 6 months of use:These are still great economical covers, but they definitely don’t go up to 18lbs. My daughter is now 15lbs and is in the 50th percentile for weight and height, and she has just outgrown these. But I must say that that isn’t bad considering all of these sizes are approximate and most of the other covers I’ve been using hasn’t been even close to their size ranges. She could still wear them just fine, but I’ve moved up in size in her prefold due to blowouts for every BM she had, and the cover doesn’t fit with it. Still a great cover. I’ll just need to get the next size up. But to use a cover, literally from birth to 6 months, is not bad for the price.
I purchased this item for my daughter. I had planned on using it to put over her underwear as she sleeps (she’s currently potty training). However when it arrived a few of the snaps were broken. I tried using it but it didn’t work. Very unimpressed.
I ordered 6 of those, each different color, for my baby which will be born in April, will use it but this one came with a broken snap at the top- so not to happy about it , will try to fix it, color is nice thought
I bought these cloth diaper covers to go with my Clotheez prefolds. I wanted the obvious benefits (environment, save money, potty train faster…) of cloth diapering but I was a bit apprehensive at first. I did alot of research on diaper covers before buying these covers. They fit my three criteria of having Snap covers, leg gussets (must have), and being adjustable. After having these for almost 3 months they have saved our furniture and our clothing from a lot of possible stains. I have also tried disposables that could not beat out these covers blow out protection. They do have a tag in the back that needs to be tucked in (you can cut it off though…) My mom bought 3 white colored covers that stain a little around the legs but seem to fade out after a few washes. The blue color cover that I purchased on my own has 0 stains on it. I love these covers so much however that I’m buying the 2nd size so that I can be ready when my son is big enough to wear them!Suggestion : BUY COLORS! Part of the fun is that you can dress your baby in something different.
Leaked after 6 weeks
These covers worked great for about 6 weeks. Afterward, they started to leak. I don’t know if it was from wear and tear or if it was from improper laundering( I’ve heard that using fabric softener or drying the covers will make them less waterproof). I liked them otherwise but I can’t use them anymore.
snaps come undone
i went for the snap version as opposed to the velcro to try something different with my cloth diapering adventure. the rise snaps come undone when on the middle setting (no, they aren’t too tight when there, the snaps just seem loose). it feels very secure on the leg gussets and waist. i tend to just keep it open on the largest setting to avoid the annoyance of hearing the snap pop open when my daughter crawls around. i use it, but it isn’t my first choice when i’m cloth diapering.
What is this! A diaper for ants!?
My 7mo daughter is only 14-15lbs. We got the 6-18lb wrap and we can barely button it. It’s really small and it’s on the biggest setting. There is no elastic in the back, so no stretch whatsoever. This diaper will fit her maybe a week longer. I’m returning as we’re not getting what we paid for. Plus the color looks like the exorcist vomit. It’s not a pretty spring green. More of a dark vomit green. The white stripes make it look like that boys underwear from the 70s. I don’t really care what it looks like so much, honestly. No one is going to see it.
Would not recommend
The snaps a re nearly impossible to snap on a squirmy baby! The velcro version of this cover was also a dud because the velcro was so sharp that it cut my son’s legs. I used wool covers and loved them!
these leak horribly!
Maybe other people just think cloth diapers and fabric covers are suppose to leak, but that is not the case. These were good when the baby was 6-10lbs but after they just leak all the time. Also the inserts never dry! in the dryer with only diaper cloths for over an hour and they will still be wet. We have since switched to FLIP covers and couldn’t be happier.
not great for smaller babies
these wraps don’t work well for smaller babies. our baby is 7.5 lbs and although the range says 6-18 pounds, we have had to go down a size/use another brand to find wraps that don’t leak and aren’t too bulky for the lower end of the weight range. on the tightest/smallest setting there is still so much extra bulk, our baby looks ridiculous and pee leaks from the top and sides.
Cute and good fit
This was a cute diaper with a great fit but stained after the first use. So disappointed! Love the blackbird design.
Have yet to try the diaper (still pregnant), but the coloring was different than featured
I haven’t tried the diaper yet as we are expecting our little one in May, but I was very surprised to see that the color of the Blackbird, size one is different than the colors in the photo. The diaper still looks great but does not have the blueish tint. Instead the background is bright white as is the edging/ banding. If you choose this style, note that the color may not be as expected.
Thirsties are thin and leak at the bindings. They do breathe a little, but I can almost never reuse them before washing. I much prefer best bottoms – they are much thicker but still soft and don’t leak at the binding.
I bought three styles of covers, these, Mio’s, and Flips. These have turned out to be my favorites! They are easy to use, fit my son well, have double gussets for extra leak protection, and come in fun colors. They only downside is that the edges tend to absorb pretty quickly, especially the waist in front, so I have to change them out more often than some of the other brands (they usually last 2-3 changes, versus 5-6).Edit: We’ve now been using these for a few months and these are definitely not my favorite. My son has become a fairly heavy wetter, so we have to change these covers out nearly every diaper. The problem is the edges absorbing like I mentioned in my original review. I would not get these again.
Broke right out of package
I was so excited to get these in the mail and start my cloth diapering journey ! Went to unsnap and pop – broke the bottom on my cutest cover. I called thirsties direct and the promptly sent out a replacement cover. They were out of snaps so sent the Velcro , that was fine. When I arrived it was the same print but blue in color for a boy. Irritating!! But decided to use it anyway. My very squirmy baby ended up working the edge of the Velcro to her tummy it left a pretty large scratch mark. Even if it may have been fault by me for not pulling the inner linner up further it still really bothered my that there is something that snap on my babies diaper cover. I did keep the other to I ordered And use them as last resort. Twi thing I did like is that that their isn’t to many snap to mess with and that I have not had a leak.
I love Thirsties wraps!
I’ve recently started cloth diapering my 4 month old and decided to try a few different wraps. I use regular Chinese prefolds with a wrap. Here are my reviews.Thirsties Duo Wrap Snap, Hoot, One: There’s a reason this is the number on listing under cloth diapers. It’s awesome. The design is great, the fit is great, the fabric is great! I do prefer velcro since my baby likes to wiggle, but that’s a personal preference. ( Thirsties makes these too ) The snap system is very sturdy. I like the fact you can change the size of this cover to fit different babies. With only 2 sizes, they are worth the initial price since they last so long. I haven’t had any leaks and that includes a major mess my daughter made last night. It cleans wonderfully. I will be buying all Thirsties from now on.Bummis Super Whisper Wrap, Celery Dot, 15-30 Pounds: ( I actually bought the small size ) This wrap is super cute. The velcro is nice since my baby is a wiggler. The fabric is slightly thicker than any other wrap I’ve used. I think this might be the problem. My daughter wet through the prefold and it got on the wrap. I had to wash it 3x to get the smell out of the cover. I haven’t had that problem with any of the other wraps I’ve used. I also would prefer a double leg gusset and this is a single.Kushies Taffeta Diaper Wrap Infant: This is an amazing price. The design is cute, it’s very lightweight and it has the velcro and double leg gussets I like. But, it’s very baggy. This works great over a fitted diaper and not very well over a prefold. My baby is pretty long and skinny, so that may be part of the problem. I have a few fitted diapers and like to use this wrap when she wears them. The material is much more vinyl-like than a regular pul wrap. I don’t really mind it, but it might get uncomfortable in warm weather.
Love the size, hate the little things
Okay, so I purchased the Hoot design and I love the design and the size. My son is almost 4 months old and the size one fits him great. It is not too bulky like some of the other cloth diapers I have. I didn’t buy the insert because it looked exactly like my fuzzibunz insert, so I thought I’d try it out with that first. For pee it works great, but for poop not so great. The wrap does not have anything to secure any kind of pad. This diaper is definetly designed for prefolds. I like that this is a PUL diaper, that way if it accidently goes in the wash/dry on hot it’s not destroyed. Another thing that bothered me was that the owl pattern is folded in on the front and tabs, so if poopy does get outside the pad/prefold it will make a mess on the shell. The problem with that is that it is nice to wipe clean and reuse the shell a couple of times before washing, but if the poopy gets on the cloth it should be washed immediatly or it will stain the nice white background. I love the gussets and how this fits him. So if you are using prefolds and have a smaller baby (my son is 15 lbs.) this is the wrap to buy.
great diaper cover!
These work great for us. I’m new to CD’s and wanted to start out easy (prefolds and covers) and thirsties are great! Fit really well (big bellied small legged baby), the double leg gussets are great.
I got the snap duo because I love the velcro version. I have been trying to switch all my diapers to snaps as my kiddo is figuring out how to take off the velcro ones. I was very disappointed when I opened the pack and discovered that the snap version has no flaps on the inside of the front to A: hold the trifolded pefolds in place. B: to prevent seeping at the top of the diaper.I immediately sent these back. I imagine with the exception of the possible top seeping issue that these hold in leaks just as well as the velcro version. All the rest of the construction is exactly the same. If you diaper your kid the traditional way with a snappi/boingo/pins then the flap probably does not matter at all and his would likely be perfect for you.
I can only get one use before it goes in the wash
My dislikes: I can only get one use before it goes in the wash. The top front portion of the diaper on the inside isn’t waterproof and so every single diaper change that part smells like pee and you can’t just wipe it like the rest of the inside. I bought 5 shells and I use them all up before the night comes.You cannot spray poop off of these shells without some serious backsplash no matter the pressure on your sprayer. That’s the downside of waterproof. The poop collects in the inner gusset and gets bunched up and you have no choice but to touch that area to spread it out to clean it. Using every folding trick I can find for my prefolds, poop always gets in the inner gusset.My likes: It holds the poop in, even though it gets inside the gussets, and I’ve never had a blow out. The double gussets are a hard to find thing, and I really wouldn’t buy any type of cloth diaper without those.
Not very good..
I am disappointed with these thirsties snap covers. My newborn leaked all over the place. We check her diapers constantly, and change them often, but after one poop there is a huge mess, and it comes out of the legs and up her back..etc. We haven’t had this problem with the Flip diapers or any of our all-in-ones. Overall, these covers aren’t so great.
Wonderful Diaper Cover!
I love Thirsties Duo Wrap diaper covers! I tried many different diaper covers and wraps before choosing these. I have been using them since my daughter was born. She is now 6 months old and is still in the size one covers. They’ve held up great! They’re great because they are so adjustable! When she was small I could snap the diaper a little lower so it fit her better. It is almost leak-proof. I have only had a few leaks in the diaper and it is usually overnight. I have not had any problems with snaps coming undone.I agree that it does keep moisture in, but regardless of what diaper system you have, you should change your child’s diaper at least every 2 hours anyway. That being said, my daughter has never had a diaper rash due to any moisture and is very comfortable in these.They’re such a great investment because they’ll last such a long time. The only drawback is the white edges do stain very easily and most of my wraps are stained even though I’ve washed them thoroughly. I’m fine with it though because you can hardly tell, even when she is wearing them and I know they’re clean so I don’t have a problem with it.
Best deal out there
Ive been exclusively cloth diapering my 14 month old son from day one. I use prefolds or flats and occasionally an extra doubler. We used to always use snappies, but ive found they really arent needed. Just lay your folded diaper in the cover and youre set.My son was 8 lbs at birth and was over 25 lbs when he turned one. My son still nurses so we get some pretty huge explosive poos. He has very chunky thighs.I originally bought Thirsties small and medium with Velcro. I also bought Imse Vimse, Bummis Original, Bummis Super Wisper Wrap, blueberry, and a few other popular brands. Now, I only buy these in size 2 as they are hands down my favorite. Blueberry Coveralls are great as well with some adorable prints, but they are way more bulky making clothes very hard to fit as well as significantly more expensive.Early on, I did a lot of size changes quickly so I really wish these had been out when I started. Size one would have saved me a lot of money. I initially prefered Velcro for the custom fit when my son was smaller, but over time, I’ve fallen out of love with the Velcro sticking to things it shouldn’t. I’ve ruined a couple of nice blouses from the Velcro and it wears the whole diaper faster when it rubs the diaper during laundry as well as while being worn by baby. Velcro also rubs baby’s skin raw when it hits their bellies during the early sitting up period. Velcro is also much easier to pull off which has resulted in my little guy trotting down the block in all his glory more than once.The wipe lining is very handy so you don’t need a new cover for every wet diaper. This makes it WAY more economical then an all in one or pocket system, which is not only more expensive per diaper, you need more of them! A particularly heavy wetting, as with all night, can cause some wicking on the binding, but I have found that to be true of all of our diaper covers. Just add a doubler if this is a problem.I’ve always washed my covers with diapers from a dry pail. We don’t presoak and we only use Charlie’s soap and vinegar on all the laundry. I’ve never put my covers in the dryer. Occasionally, I hang them outside on bright, sunny days I hang them inside-out to let the sun remove any discoloration on the white binding on the inside. they have held up beautifully. Only the Velcro closing ones might not be ok for the next baby.I’ve never had a blow out and the only leaks were from a few times I didn’t put the diaper on correctly/straight. if you want to cloth diaper economically, buy these with Indian cotton prefolds. I’ve been pleased with the ones from Green Mountain diapers. Flats work great too and then you only need one size, they also wash up better and dry faster than prefolds.
It takes a lot of time to clip the buttons
It took a lot of time to clip the buttons when I fisrt used it. You will feel this,especially when your baby is crying during diaper change.
Just as expected
This was just as expected! So cute, I can’t wait to actually try it out, baby is due in four days, so hopefully it will get tried out soon!
Love the snaps
I purchased the Thirsties Duo Wrap Snap for my 22lb child and they fit great on the smaller setting. This is my favorite cover for my toddler.
