Thirsties Duo Diapers

Post by stripeycat » Fri Jun 11, 2010 10:23 pm

Despite having a twin-sized stash, I've found Ava fits things differently to the older girls, so have used the "need more nappies in winter" excuse :oops: to try out a few different nappies for her. One of these has been the Thirsties Duo Diapers from Mothers Instinct.

I've always loved the Thirsties Wraps - the gussets are fabulous for protecting explosions and the velcro gives a great fit. These pocket versions are even better, with the adjustable rise meaning I can use the same nappy for day and night (plenty of room for night-time stuffing when I go up a snap level). She's a tummy sleeper, so I can give it a nice high rise to stop top leaks.

The insert is a great combination of microfibre and hemp, which unsnaps into the 2 different parts for quicker drying - just perfect! We got 4 hours easily out of it while off visiting today - it was pretty wet but not completely saturated, and absolutely no dampness on the outside or on her clothing at all. I've also used them with just a pad-folded flat as an insert and had no issues.

The pocket opens at both ends and it says you can leave the insert in to agitate out in the wash - I haven't tried this out yet (can't get out of the habit of emptying all my pockets!)

With the gussets you don't have to fluff around with the legs or anything - just chuck them on and you're away. Ava is now having regular visits with relatives who are hopeless with most nappies (despite being given lessons and instructions) and these have become our first-choice "babysitter" nappy - they are so easy to use, really reliable and you just can't go wrong with the fit. \:D/ The price tag is also great value, given how much adjustability there is in this nappy. (There are some cute prints and lovely colours available too! :wink: )

I haven't been tempted to buy any new nappies for ages but your post has me well and truly tempted. They sound like a great nappy.
