Natural One Size All in One

 

Thirsties Natural Diaper

It’s no surprise that cloth diapering families have a variety of needs and preferences. Consequently Thirsties offers a variety of cloth diaper types: All in One, Pocket Diaper, Fitted, Duo Wraps, Diaper Covers, Prefolds, and Inserts. Yet cloth diapering preferences and needs are not limited to diaper types but also materials. Many love the absorbency and fast drying time of Thirsties microfiber terry. While others prefer natural fibers like Thirsties hemp/organic cotton found in our Prefolds and Hemp Inserts. Thirsties fans have been asking for a natural fiber diaper and after a long detailed design process and several proto types we are happy to introduce the newest member of the Thirsties line up…

Please give a warm welcome to our all-new Natural One-Size All-in-One diaper! This new, easy-to-use cloth diaper includes 11 thirsty layers of natural fibers: 3 layers of organic cotton in the body and 2 soaker pads … Read More

Leap Into Cloth

leap-into-cloth-2Happy Leap Day! This always feels like such a special, interesting day. It’s almost like a holiday that you only get to celebrate every 4 years. Just the perfect type of day to try something new!

Unless you’re a cloth diapering expert (and I know many of you are!), we all have an area of the cloth diapering world that we haven’t tried out. Maybe you only use cloth part of the time. Maybe you’re just in the “research stage” of cloth diapering and are too scared to give it a go. Maybe you’re only using disposable wipes.

Well, why not use Leap Day as an excuse to give something a try? You may find out that cloth is easier to get the hang of than you expected. You may find your *favorite* new style of cloth. Or, you may fall in love with Thirsties’ new organic cloth wipes AND … Read More

The Mixed-Up Stash

(Not to be confused with Eric Carle’s The Mixed-Up Chameleon, although its theme of “you do you” would be right at home here today.)

We recently shared a post about the fact that
there’s no one “right” way to cloth diaper, along with one discussing the importance of supporting the diverse reasons behind cloth diapering for #ClothCommunity Day. Whether you’re a part-timer (we still are) or a full-timer, use only one brand or have an array of options, there really is no wrong way to do it.


In my low-stress cloth diapering post, some were surprised to hear that we’ve been partial to all-in-one style diapers ever since my daughter was still a newborn. They thought that a Duo Wrap with a prefold or flat combination was the way to cloth diaper a newborn. It made me realize that literally EVERYONE has different cloth diapering experiences and Read More

Organizing Cloth Diapers

Last week, we chatted about purging while pregnant – the whys and hows. It made me think about how purging and cloth diapering go hand-in-hand.

*record scratch*

Hubba, whaaa? How can that be? Especially when many of us want to #buyallthediapers??

All I really mean is that I’ve noticed that many families that cloth diaper are all about living simply, too. We all have TONS of different reasons for cloth diapering, but we can all agree that life is a bit simpler not to have to run out and spend money on disposables on a regular basis (once you get your wash routine down, of course). It’s just one less thing to worry about.

Sure, some of us have a super basic stash consisting of flats and covers, while others have a huge stash featuring the latest prints and colors. Some have all one brand (if it’s Thirsties, we appreciate … Read More

What’s Old is New Again

Raise your hand if you were cloth diapered as a baby.

*
raises hand*

I was born in 1982 and, yup, I was cloth diapered in the traditional “flats-and-prefolds-and-safety pins-and-rubber pants” sort of way. It could have been because we had very little money. It could have been simply because my mother was an economical fiend (in a good way). It could have been because it was how my mother was taught to do things. It also might have been because I was the last of four and my mother wasn’t about to change up her system at that point.

Back then, it wasn’t a hip trend to CD since the only diaper color available, as far as I know, was, um, white. (I still have an affinity for a cute, white-fluffed bum.) Although, seriously, haven’t they come a long way? It wasn’t really done to save the planet, either, … Read More
