Size Two - 18-40 lbs (8-18 kg) 9-36+ months
Features:
  • Features and adjustable rise for extended use to suit your growing baby
  • Two sizes will fit from birth to potty
  • Leg gussets provide superior protection against leaks
  • Pliable and breathable in over a dozen fresh colors
  • Pair with basic Prefold Cloth Diapers and save $2000 over disposables!
  • Pair with Thirsties® Fab Fitted Cloth Diapers and save $1000 over disposables!
Details:
Thirsties® Duo Wraps are easy to use and easier on your wallet! The adjustable rise of this wrap design means one size will last twice as long. In fact, only two sizes will cover your baby from birth all the way to potty-learning.
Similar in feel to our best-selling Diaper Cover, Thirsties® Duo Wraps are completely waterproof yet remain breathable, pliable, and very comfortable for your baby’s delicate skin. Durable snap closures provide a secure fit at every diaper change. Leg gussets provide advanced leak-proof protection and bindings are super-soft against baby skin.
Thirsties® Duo Wraps are a result of more than six months of development and testing. This affordable wrap actually hatched as a one-size diaper cover. Logically, we thought a one-size diaper cover would be the most affordable option for the end-consumer. But what we actually discovered, no matter how many different cuts and prototypes we made, is that the 'one-size' options are too big on the average newborn and too small for most toddlers over 24 months of age. What this means is that the 'one-size' option truly only fits your baby properly when your he weighs between 10 lbs to 32 lbs. Alas, our findings confirm that the label 'one-size' diaper/cover simply does not live up to its claim. Most families purchasing a 'one size' cover would actually end up purchasing a newborn size, a 'one-size', and a toddler size: THREE sizes from birth to potty! Not ONE. Therefore, in the end, Thirsties® Duo Wraps are truly looking out for your wallet.
Thirsties® Duo Wraps are a very trim fitting cover. They are the preferred wrap for trifolded prefold diapers and over trim fitted diapers, such as our Fab Fitted diapers. For bulkier systems and/or for nighttime double stuffing, we recommend Thirsties® Diaper Cover, which has a roomier fit.
Care & Content:
Machine wash warm or hot. Dry in dryer or hang to dry. Made in the USA 100% polyester w/urethane coating - FREE of PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex

    Cloth Diapering Defined ....and stay tuned for the next giveaway coming soon!

    Finding the right diaper pail
    The first step is to get a pail or hanging diaper tote to store your dirty diapers until wash day which should be every 1-2 days. We recommend FuzziBunz In and Out Mess Free Diaper Bag it is super convenient come wash day and a takes up less space than a diaper pail. Or if you prefer a diaper pail we recommend Thirsties Diaper Pail Liner.Whichever method you choose is personal preference. If you are worried about odors you can shake a little Rockin' Green RG Pail Freshner in the bag or pail with every stinker. It comes in lots of yummy scents like Grape Soda and Cherry Lemonade. After you have a system set up that you like you are set to start cloth diapering.

    Choosing the right type of diaper
    Next you need to select the type of cloth diaper you wish to use, I hope this chart is helpful in your selection.


    Since prefolds are not waterproof you need a diaper cover or wrap over the prefold. You can also use a Snappi Diaper Fastener to secure the
    prefold under the diaper cover/wrap to ensure the prefold stays in place.
    Pros: Prefolds will stand up to lots of washing, you can send them off to diaper service for washing (just make sure you approve of how they wash them!), very affordable, quick drying. Cons: Less convenient than a pocket or AIO style diaper, requires numerous initial washes to soften and become absorbent (at least 3 before use), prefolds can pill and sometimes it is hard to get a good fit.


    Diaper Covers are great because you just one over just about anything and you have yourself a waterproof diapering system. They are inexpensive and you only need 6-8 since you don't change them with every diaper. Pros: Waterproof, comes in snaps or velcro for an easy fit, inexpensive. Cons: Can wear out faster than a AIO or pocket, doesn't always
    keep messes in place, can be hard to get a good fit when using a prefold.


    Most similar to a disposable diaper since there is no folding or stuffing.You may add a doubler for more absorbency. Pros: Very convenient, waterproof, doesn't require any stuffing or folding.

    Cons:Can be difficult to wash and dry since they are so thick, Not super
    absorbent unless you add a doubler or soaker, one of the most expensive options.


    Fitteds are not waterproof so you will need a diaper cover/wrap over them. They have a nice secure and snug fit. Pros: Very snug and secure fit, easy to secure with snaps or
    velcro, generally made of soft cooshy fabrics, no folding.
    Cons:Requires a diaper cover/wrap, can take longer to dry than a prefold.

    Pocket diapers are like a AIO in the respect that they are self sufficient. A pocket has a waterproof shell and a lining that keeps baby dry. You stuff an absorbent insert inside to catch liquid. Pockets are very absorbent and you can add more than one insert increase absorbency.

    Pros: Very absorbent and keeps moisture off babies skin,
    waterproof, easy to secure with snaps or velcro, quick drying since diaper shell and insert are separated for washing/drying.
    Cons: Pockets need to be stuffed before each use and inset must be removed before wash, outer shell needs to be washed after each use.

    Washing Diapers

    While everyone has a different washing routine and every washer is a bit different here are some steps to get you started. I recommend washing no more than 12-18 diapers at a time to ensure you diapers come clean and to prevent piling. You will also need to use less detergent when washing your diapers. The amount will depend on your machine and if it is a top or a front loader as front loaders need much less detergent. On average it is 1/4 as much as you would use for a normal load. I recommend and use Rockin' Green and the amount is 1-2 tbs.

    Always run cold rinse and then a hot wash. ALWAYS use the highest water level setting for your machine If you don't you will get a nasty amonia smell to your diapers. To trick my HE washer I run cold soak, (sometimes cold rinse if they are really soiled) then hot wash heavy duty or your highest water level setting. The cold soak tricks my washer into thinking the load is heavier and uses more water on the wash cycle. You can also toss a wet towel in with your diapers to trick the HE machines.

    Drying Diapers

    Your can either line dry your diapers in the sun or dry them in the dryer. Line drying in the sun helps remove stains and brightens your diapers. Drying the in the dryer of course is faster and more convenient. Make sure you follow the specific temperature settings as specified by the manufacturer as each diaper brand can vary.
