Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefold Review

You can imagine my surprise when I received this in the mail from Wee Little Changes:
Yes, my arm is THROUGH this prefold. But this isn't just any prefold, this is the Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefold.

(And before I go any further, I must apologize. My youngest is trying ever so hard to get on the move. Diaper changes are neigh impossible! While I love picking out his diapers, if hubby is home, I've regulated him to diaper duty - this "I'm doing everything in my willpower to crawl, squirm and get moving" business is for the birds! So, all that to say, pictures are getting harder to take, hehe!)

Back to the prefold! The Thirsties Duo Hemp Prefold is soft. SO soft. Think "my favorite old t-shirt" soft. And instead of your typical "extra absorbency in the middle" prefold, this one is quilted-like (hard to get a good, close-up shot of this. Apologies again!) Think "quilted pillows".
Laid out - it's a huge size, about the size of a couch cushion!
Here is where the once-you-get-it-it's-so-easy world of prefolds gets even easier...

Fold the Thristies Duo Hemp Prefold into thirds...
(side note: there is about an inch wide "top flap" at one end of the prefold that you can fold down if the prefold is too long for your baby)
Lay it inside your Thirsties Duo Cover (this is a Size 2 Prefold inside a Size 2 Cover)
(Squirmy baby alert: Tried to show how it would cover him...it covers even better when you don't stop to snap a picture, hehe)
Snap (or velcro!) on the cover and viola!
Nice and trim!
And apparently comfy too!
And we're off to explore some more!
The Thristies Duo Hemp Prefold is amazing. Not only does it make prefolds super easy, there are a couple other reasons this particular prefold rocks:
  • Being as thin as it is, it does not take long to dry (even air drying, it's fast)
  • Thorough cleaning is achieved as there is not as much fabric to clean
  • Hemp has antimicrobial properties, is more absorbent and more durable than cotton
The Thristies Duo Hemp Prefold comes in two sizes: Size 1 (6-18lbs) and Size 2 (18-40lbs).

We have absolutely loved this prefold! We've recently started our youngest on solids and this diaper has been great for exclusively breastfed poo, as well as solids poo :) I've also paired this prefold with a doubler inserted in the middle, then trifolded for night time, with a cover - perfection. If you are worried about getting the hang of prefolds, all the folding and snappi-ing or pinning, this is a great alternative to the traditional! (And did I mention how incredibly soft it is??) :)

Disclaimer: I received a Size 2 Thristies Duo Hemp Prefold from Wee Little Changes for review as part of the Under Cover Month event. All opinions are my own and you may have a different experience.

if you were to compare this to the babykicks hemp prefold - which you used with a snappi instead of prefolding - what would you say? they seem pretty similar except for the sizing.
