The Best Cloth Diaper Cover for Leak Protection: An Overview of the Thirsties Duo Wrap

Thirsties Duo Wrap

For the most part, all cloth diapering systems are comprised of two pieces: one that is absorbent and one that prevents leaks. In other words, you need a waterproof layer to prevent leaks and an absorbent layer to successfully soak up liquids when cloth diapering.

Thirsties Duo Wrap diaper covers are completely waterproof yet remain breathable, pliable, and comfortable for baby’s skin. A trim fit, double gusset leak protection and super soft bindings work together to create that signature fit while keeping leaks away. Duo Wrap sizing and care is so simple and because you can use the same Duo Wrap three to four times, you’ll need fewer wraps in your rotation as well.

In this article, we will breakdown the fit features, how to choose absorbency and laundry care tips for all your Thirsties Duo Wraps.

Kiddos do things in their own time and every kiddo is different. And just like some preschoolers learn to ride a bike at three and some learn at seven, some aren’t necessarily ready to potty learn just because their bodies hit the magical 40 lb mark. Enter Thirsties Size Three Duo Wrap!
