The tribe of cloth diapering families is a wonderfully unique one. This community of parents and care givers daily step outside the “norm,” choosing products that are better for their children and the environment. The #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest celebrates this tribe, the fabulous diapers they use, and the little ones who make this stage of life so special!
Here’s how the photo contest works. Thirsties fans capture photos of our products in their “real” lives. Then they share their images on Instagram and/or in The Thirsties Groupies Official Fan Chat on Facebook using the hashtag #ThirstiesRealLife. Every Thursday we select one or two images as that week’s feature photos. At the end of the month, these feature photos are then finalists in the #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest. Fans select the winning photo by voting for their favorite images on IG and Facebook.
Here are the March 2017 finalists and winning image:… Read More

Maybe you’ve got a newborn at home. Maybe you’ve just gotten over a 2-week family bout of the stomach flu (like in our household). Or maybe it’s just the day-in, day-out craziness of schedules and bathtimes and keeping the house presentable and work responsibilities and, well, life.
As amazing as it is, parenting is just tough sometimes.
These are the times that I have to remind myself to ease up. Sometimes we make things more stressful than we need to, and sometimes we simply need to make things easier on ourselves when life throws us curveballs.
So, today I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to do just that – ways that I cut myself some slack while I try to regain that equilibrium again. Maybe they’ll help you when things get stressful.
Use (or find!) a favorite essential oil to relax (or motivate). I have a favorite, relaxing … Read More
We can’t think of a better way to start 2017 than with a celebration of cloth diapers and adorable little ones. Well friends, that is exactly what the #ThirstiesRealLife Photo Contest is ALL about! The early years of our children’s lives are here and gone before we know it. Thankfully, as photographer Roger Kingston says, “A camera is a save button for the mindseye.”
In that spirit, every month Thirsties has a fun photo contest in which folks capture and share their #ThirstiesRealLife moments on Instagram or in the Thirsties Groupies on Facebook. On Thursday every week we select one or two feature photos, which become finalists in the photo contest. At the end of the month fans vote for their favorite photos. Here are the finalists for January 2017.
This month we had a record number of votes, over 1,000! Now that’s what we call working to #makeclothmainstream! We … Read More
The holidays are marked with such vibrant memories we get to December and can hardly believe a whole year has past. Has it been a whole year already? I remember when… One of our favorite things to do at the end of December is look back and remember the last twelve months and celebrate what made the year special. In that spirit here is Thirsties 2016 Year in Review.
2016 was a year full of amazing new products and fabulous cloth diaper prints and colors. Starting us off in January was the release of our Valentine’s print, “Straight to My Heart.”
March was a noteworthy month because we started broadcasting live through Thirsties Facebook Page. #ThirstiesLive is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our customers and folks in the cloth diapering industry. We strive to provide … Read More

Here at Thirsties, we’re passionate about the Great Outdoors. Camping, hiking, simply basking in the breathtaking beauty – it’s one of the things that make life great. That’s why we’re ecstatic to share with you our newest release – during the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service – Thirsties Outdoor Adventure Collection. The Collection includes 4 new nature-inspired prints and 1 new color. Available in all your favorite sizes, styles, and absorbencies, these colors and prints evoke the fun, serene calm, and beauty of the outdoors.
This hand-drawn print served as the starting point for the Outdoor Adventure Collection. Our designer doodled some of our favorite aspects of camping and scanned them into her computer, resulting in an adorable work of art. With cheerful birds, quaint picnic tables, classic canoes, s’mores by the camp fire, pop up tents, and even line-drying diapers, this print will make … Read More
