Before Use: Wash your Duo Diaper shells along with the terry portion of the insert once before use. The hemp portion of the insert needs to be washed and dried at least three times before use to rid the fibers of the natural oils. This is done separately from your other diapering products for the first 3 washes. Inserts will be fully primed and at their maximum absorbency after 8 wash cycles.
At every wash cycle:
-Prewash on warm
-Wash on hot
-Add another rinse on warm.
-Hang dry the shells or dry in the dryer on low. Inserts may be hung to dry or dried in the dryer. If inserts are stiff after line drying, you can throw them in the dryer on medium heat with some wool dryer balls to soften them.
Use enough water to soak and cover the diapering items and allow them to agitate.
Please avoid the following:
Sanitize or Whites cycles on HE machines
High heat in the dryer
These practices and/or additives can void the warranty on your Thirsties products. A 15 minute cycle on hot in the dryer once a month is beneficial to lamination, and will not void your warranty. You may use high heat on inserts.
Please find our complete care instructions in our Customer Center -> Care and Use.
Thirsties Duo Diaper is an ultra-absorbent pocket diaper delivering dependability as a day or night time diaper. Our handy sleeve design features openings on both sides of the diaper between the stay-dry microfleece and waterproof layers. These openings allow for easy insert stuffing from either side of the diaper and make for easy cleaning. There is no need to remove soiled inserts before washing. Simply toss soiled Thirsties Duo Diapers in the washing machine and the inserts will agitate free during the wash cycle.
The included inserts feature two layers of serged microfiber terry snapped together with five serged layers of hemp jersey; seven thirsty layers in all! Microfiber terry is a fast absorber designed to rest closest to your baby's skin (beneath the microfleece sleeve); hemp is a stable absorber and pairs perfectly behind the microfiber terry to add more absorbency and prevent compression leaking.
By the way...did you know that Thirsties' new hemp jersey is like no other on the market!?! We (finally) found a knitter right here in the USA to custom knit the hemp textile to our specifications. You will find this hemp is thicker, softer, and holds-up better than any other on the market.
Pairing the adjustable rise with our signature leg gussets ensures messes will be contained whether your baby is tall, short, skinny, or chunky. Plus, Thirsties Duo Diapers are a cinch to use...even for the occasional caretaker. Simply stuff the insert in the sleeve of the diaper and wrap around your baby.
Both snap and Aplix® closures are available on Thirsties Duo line. While many families prefer Aplix® closures because of the simple, secure fit they provide, snap closures do have a few advantages of their own. They are pretty much indestructible and are more unyielding than our Aplix® hook-and-loop closures, making them more challenging to unfasten for a toddler who prefers to go naked.
In an effort to maximize affordability of cloth diapering Thirsties created our Duo line. This means all Duo products are available in 2 sizes which will cover your baby from birth to potty. Each of the two sizes in the Thirsties Duo line feature three rows of snaps to adjust the rise to your baby’s shape; it is like having THREE sizes in one.

"I just wanted to say thank you for putting out such a great cloth diaper inThirsties Duo Diaper. I have tried a few other brands and the inside of thediaper gets worn and thinned out after only 5-6 mos of use. Not to mentionthe stains are definitely harder to remove with some other cloth diaperbrands.My friend gave me a few Thirsties diapers to try and these diapers are acomplete 180 from the other brands. I love how after many washes the diaperstill looks fantastic. The stains are minimal and the buttons snap as wellas when the diapers were first bought for me. You gals and guys are great!"
"Just wanted to say-I LOVE LOVE LOVE the duo diaper! I think I have triedabout every cloth all in one and pocket diaper out there, and the duo diaperwas my favorite, and most reliable of the stash. Rarely have I ever have an issuewith leaking, which is not my experience with the other diapers we have tried.We almost gave up on using cloth because of leaks until we tried yourproduct. My only suggestion would be to add some new prints. I have the coolstripes and the blackbird one, but would love some new prints to get for mylittle guy. I get so many compliments on my Thirsties! Thank you for allthat you do!"
"The size one diaper and covers fit my daughter perfectly, and are so easy to use (even with a very wiggly baby). Not only are they cost effective, convenient, and super absorbent, but they are super cute. I have actually gotten compliments on her diaper/diaper covers from strangers. I was a little hesitant to put my daughter in a cloth diaper at night, thinking that a disposable diaper would wick the wetness away more efficiently to avoid diaper rash. Boy was I wrong! We have used the duo diaper at night now for the past 8 weeks without a single rash or red mark. In addition, this is the only cloth diaper that hasn’t leaked or allowed for a diaper blowout. I can’t tell you how happy that has made me! "
"First off love your duo diapers. Love the leg gussets! It's the first diaper to actually contain my daughter's breast fed blow outs. And, no leg leaks which means less washing clothes. They also fit great under her clothes without too much bulk."
"Thirsties Duo Diapers are my absolute favorite night time diaper! We go 10+ hours at night with no leaks, and the fit is wonderful around the legs and stomach! I am so happy with these diapers! I have two, and I plan to buy more!"
