Cloth diapers make me really happy. They save me loads of money, are a great way to be environmentally friendly and they help me keep nasty chemicals found in many disposable diapers away from my baby. What’s not to love? So, I was thrilled to be able to get the chance to try out Thirsties brand Natural One Size All In One cloth diapers! I’m even more thrilled that one of you will get the chance to win your own Thirsties brand cloth diaper! Just read to the end of my post to see how.
Kinds of Cloth
We don’t stick to any one brand or type of cloth diaper. I have some hand-me-downs from my nieces and various others that I’ve collected since my daughter was born. The majority of them are pocket diapers, which if you are new to cloth diapering means that you stuff each diaper with an absorbent insert before using it. The insert needs to then be removed before it and the cloth diaper can be washed. It’s not a ton of extra work, and we do love our pocket diapers, but it definitely can get a little time consuming if you use cloth every day. Thirsties carries all types of diapers, but I was excited to try their All In One because it is so darn simple to use!
If you are just starting out with cloth diapers and are a little overwhelmed with all the different types and choices, all in ones are really a great option! They require very little extra work. No prep needed! Just wash, put on your baby, and wash again! No stuffing or folding needed.
What I Thought
From the first time I felt the Thirsties All In One I was seriously impressed with the quality! They are produced in the US and I could really tell it felt well made. The interior layer is made of organic cotton as well as the two attached soaker pads, each made with 8 layers of hemp/organic cotton. The material is so soft to the touch and I know my little girl is super comfy in them! She can be a heavy wetter and so far we have not had any issues with leaking.
Another thing I really love about the Thirsties Natural All In One is that you can get them with a snap or hook and loop (velcro) closure. Most of our current cloth diapers are snaps, which are fine, but my daughter is such a wiggle worm! It can seriously feel like a wrestling match trying to get her still long enough to get a diaper on her. In my opinion, hook and loop closure is a lot easier and faster to get on and provides just as good of a fit, if not better!
The Thirsties All In One is a one size diaper. It is made to fit babies from 8-40 pounds. Regardless of if you get snaps closure or hook and loop closure, there are snaps to adjust the rise. This helps to ensure a good customized fit. My daughter is almost a year and a little over 20 pounds and I still need to snap down one row to get a good snug fit. When I do this it really is a trim diaper! I know that some people who aren’t sure about the switch to cloth complain that they are too bulky. This is a great diaper to prove them wrong! Not bulky in the least!
Couldn’t Be Easier
Overall, I’ve been really impressed with this diaper so far! The fit and style are great and most importantly, it does it’s job without leaking! I think my absolute favorite thing about it though is how easy it is to use and care for! Kind of makes me wish all my diapers were all in ones! Ok, now that you’ve heard me get more excited over cloth diapering than a normal person probably should (#momlife) it’s your turn to enter to win a Thirsties cloth diaper!
