Thirsties Update: What’s New

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Thirsties updateOne of the gold standards in cloth diapers is Thirsties. We use their hemp inserts in literally every diaper we use. The year our diapered babe went to childcare we immediately purchased a stack of their AIOs. Thirsties is the only brand of which we own every single one of their products. They offer an outstanding company ethic too, a Colorado-based family company that stays connected to their clientele, committed to sustainability, and partnered with Giving Diapers Giving Hope.

If you’ve been away from the cloth diaper scene for a couple years, but especially the last year, Thirsties has made some major updates on most of their products that you’ll want to know about. In the last several years they updated their aplix to a larger tab with a higher quality aplix. It is arguably the best on the market if not one of the best. They also introduced a one-size pocket diaper with a hemp insert that is trim and absorbent. At the same time they’ve kept the quality and double-gussets that offer superior protection.

  • Cotton organic doublers—a natural-fiber alternative to the cotton velour doublers.
  • Natural fitteds in one-size and newborn options—Bamboo cotton replaces the old style fitted cotton mix. The inserts are also updated, and no longer fully sewn in like the older design.
  • Natural AIO in one-size and newborn options—The updated AIO has inserts of hemp and organic cotton, an update to their previous micro terry version. The material adds absorbency with its natural fibers. Change in design of the inserts (two sewn in at one side of the diaper) cut down on dry time and add versatility in how you place the absorbency for your child’s specific needs.
  • Sized covers now cover down to four pounds with the newborn size option.
  • Organic cloth wipes—updated from velour to an irresistible organic cotton and terry.

Thirsties also released a slew of prints in the last 18 months including the Ocean Collection, Woodland Collection, and a handful of limited and seasonal editions. Pick yours up today!
