Thirsties Duo and Stay Dry Insert Review

I am an avid Thirsties fan. I have their (now discontinued) AIO diaper, I have 3 of their Duo Diapers and I have their Duo Covers (way to many) in multiple colors, designs and sizes. When I was given the opportunity to review their Duo Cover with their stay dry insert I was excited.

A little about the company:
"Thirsties® is a small (but growing!) cloth diaper company committed to greener parenting and Eco Friendly solutions, not to mention 100% USA Made quality! Erin, founder of Thirsties, started this business with an old sewing machine and $100 5 years ago. Through her hard work and diligence, the company is now one of the leaders in the cloth diaper industry. Our diapers are now made by work at home mothers, and very close to our warehouse, reducing our carbon output. Our customer service reps are experienced cloth diapering moms, and offer our knowledge to our retailers and customers alike."

My first diapers were prefolds and Thristies covers. I eventually bought a pocket diaper and liked the easiness of it. I wanted something easier to use with my covers so I thought maybe I could just stick some inserts into a cover. In doing so I ran into the issue of microfiber against baby’s bottom, which isn’t recommended. So my attempt at finding an easier solution was over. Until I read about Thirsties Stay Dry Insert, and this made me happy! The Stay Dry Insert was what I had wanted but wasn’t able to really put together.

Here is the diaper I received:

Needless to say I was very Impressed with the adorable way it was packaged and tied up with a ribbon! (on a side note: Thirsties uses a shipping bag that can decompose within months of being in a landfill and can also be reused with the extra seal. I saved the bag to reuse!)

Okay so I got the Cool Stripes print in size 2 for the Duo cover, and I received a size two stay dry insert.

The stay dry insert consists of 2 parts. The bottom insert is made up of Hemp. The top insert is made up of microfiber terry and has fleece on top of it to protect baby from wetness. It is really absorbent but is still nice and trim. It combines fast absorbing power of microfiber with the stable absorbency of hemp. The two inserts are held together with snaps. This is handy because you know that the fleece will always be on the top and not the microfiber!

The cover comes in two sizes: size one and size two.

The size one cover fits 0-9 months or up to 18 pounds

The size two cover fits 9months to 2+ years or 18-35 pounds

Depending on the build of your child the sizing might not be quite right for you. My 5 month old just grew out of the size one diaper covers. He was around 16-17 pounds when I stopped using them on him. I find that the fit of the cover is bigger than the fit of the Duo Diaper (like a pocket diaper). I am now using the size two cover on him. It is still pretty big on him but I don’t seem to have any issues with it leaking unless I go to long in between diaper changes (which happens with all diapers). My 2 year old wears the size two diaper as well. I have him on the middle rise setting. He is tall and skinny and I know this diaper will fit him for a long time to come yet.

The Diaper features Laundry tabs to help keep it from attaching to other diapers in the wash. In my experience they do occasionally come unhooked, just like any other diaper.

Here is the diaper all set up. All you do is lay the Stay Dry Insert in the cover like so and wrap it around your baby!

I think this is kind of a cool shot…slightly blurry but you get the point. One great thing about Thirsties diapers are the leg gussets! It helps to catch those little poos that try to escape.

Time to test… Here is the front of the diaper on the smallest rise setting on my 5 month old. It has a great fit on him here in the picture but once he starts wiggling around it will start to droop a little in between the legs but I still don’t have leak issues with it.

There is a little bit of a bulk to this diaper but not as bulky as a prefold. It actually is sticking up a little more than I realized it was. His pants fit great over this combo.

Here is the back from the top of the diaper. How do babies bend like that?

Okay so now that I’ve gone over the basics of the diaper I will share a little about my experience with it so far.

-This diaper is super cute and I like showing it off. Thirsties has a lot of great prints for boys and girls.

-The stay dry insert is really neat. I like the easiness of it and not having to worry about folding anything. It fits fairly well into the cover but I have found that it shrinks a little bit after washing multiple times. It fits well into the small rise setting, good into the medium rise setting but I’m not sure about the large rise setting. I did open up my diaper to the large setting and put this into it and I found that it is short. Im not sure about the baby’s skin touching the PUL on the diaper or not, but I guess it would on the sides of the diaper with the insert in there. I think on the large setting the skin would be touching the PUL on the upper back.

-I love the cover. I have been using the covers since I started cloth diapering and enjoy them. They have a great extra gusset that has held in some supreme explosions from my newborn who was EBF. Not a stained outfit! YAY! Some of my older covers are starting to show some wear and tare on them. I have a few stray strings coming off the Velcro strip and a little bit of pilling but other than that they are holding up great.

-This is a great quick and easy combo that would be great for Dad’s or Grandma’s.

-If baby is just wet you can dump the insert out and put a new one in an reuse the cover. I have yet to have a clean cover after a poopy.
