After trying several brands of cloth diapers with our son (who is now 11 weeks old), I was getting very discouraged since they all seemed to leak. Then I tried Thirsties' Pockets, and couldn't have been more pleased. The double-gussets on the legs seem to do the trick to avoid leaks. The hook-and-loop are easy to adjust the fit, they hold well, and the designs are cute also. I've since stocked up and have a renewed confidence in cloth diapering. Thirsties' have been the answer!

A good friend started me off with a stash of prefolds and Thirsties Duo wraps. I fell in love and ordered more Duo Wraps. I wanted a little more convenience for baby sitters and outings so we bought 6 one-size pockets. I have been cloth diapering for 2+ months now. My baby/toddler is about 20 lbs and is 15 months old. She's rather petite. These pockets (with inserts) fit so nicely and even a little trim compared to the Dup Wraps! We use the Duo Wraps at home and the pockets when we have dr's appointments and such. The one-size pockets are wonderful at night, too!! Our Duo Wrap covers have snap closures and the pockets have hook-and-loop closures, which at first I wasn't head over heels for but boy do I love them!! We get a nicer fit around her tummy with the hook-and-loop than with snaps and it makes for less guess work for baby sitters. Plus, hook-and-loop is faster to fasten with a wiggly little one. I was introduced to cloth diapering with Thirsties and I will stick with them as we have more babies! They are such great quality!! I have nothing bad to say about Thirsties :)

I ordered the Ocean Collection of the snap OS pockets. I love the prints and even have a travel wet bag to match. The positives I can give for these diapers are that the materials are quality and made well, the inserts agitate out in prewash, and the prints are cute. However, due to the negatives we will be destashing these and investing in other brands. First of all, these are the most expensive diapers in our stash of 7 brands. They consistently leak out of the leg wholes...even on the tightest setting and my baby is average by height and weight on the charts. The double gussets while a good idea in theory do not work for us. The outer gusset doesn't even touch his skin and these diapers always leave lines on him. Also, the elastic areas stain consistently and the inserts are only absorbent enough for us when doubled up which adds to bulk and more work for stuffing. I really wanted to love these diapers so I am disappointed to say the least. I will keep using my fab doublers and wet bag by this brand.

Have this diaper in the colour/print fin. Great quality- the gussets keep all the little bits in. I don't think this diaper would fit a small newborn that well though.

I have 2 of these and really like them. They are very trim and the prints are beautiful. The combo of absorbent fabrics is fabulous for as babies grow!

These are my favorite pockets! I love that they come with hemp and microfiber, they are my go to when I know we will be out for awhile. I have also used these on my 9 month old overnight for 9+ hours and she never wets through.

I recently purchased this diaper in the Scottish Storm print. So far it has been worth the money. I like pocket diapers and this one is great. It absorbs well and hasn't had any leaks so far(and my son made sure to break it in really good the first time he wore it). This diaper makes me want to try more of Thirsties diapers and products.

We LOVED Thirsties for our babies from birth to about 8 months. Then they got too big for these diapers:) That's the only downside!

I love this diaper and have it in hoot. It's a tiny bit tough to stuff, but it's very trim, absorbs well, and the velcro is fantastic!
Review by: Jennifer on Jan, 04, 2015
STILL our favorite! We have been using (maybe even abusing) this diaper for a year now. I have about 8 brands in my rotation and these are overwhelmingly my favorite and my husband's too. First of all, they never leak. Secondly, most of my other brands need the leg elastic replaced or the velcro replaced. None of our Thirsties need new elestic and the velcro is as good as new (thanks to the amazing laundry tabs that WORK). I just ordered five more to replace the other bands that are failing me. Oh, and the fact that I don't have to remove the inserts at wash time makes me almost wish my son poops in the Thirsties. Haha. 😜

The diaper is well made, but compared to all the other brands of one-size pocket diapers, it is at least 2 inches shorter, and considerably smaller. I have my 6 month old in nearly the largest settings and they are still putting elastic marks deep into his skin. I think next time I'll get more BumGenius diapers as they will be able to grow with my baby

I love these pocket diapers the best of all brands I've tried! I've only used them on the smallest setting, but I'm confident I'll love the on all settings! i love the ease of stuffing these AND UNstuffing dirty, wet inserts is also the easiest (although you don't have to unstuff them--they come out in the wash--but I want to make sure the inserts get cleaned as best as possible.)!! I love the snaps on the inserts for ease of stuffing!! and of course, the gussets make this extra awesome!!

Thirsties did everything right with this one! I have tried about a dozen different brand pocket diapers and this one is by far my favorite. This is the only diaper I have ever purchased that I actually use, and love, the insert that came with it. I love that there are openings in the back of the diaper which makes stuffing it very easy and allows the insert to agitate out by itself in the wash! (Yay! No more touching icky inserts!)The hook and loop closure is the stickiest I have ever seen. The laundry tabs almost self-close and always stay closed while washing. The icing on the cake is that this diaper is made in the USA! The value is amazing for an American made diaper that comes with a fabulous hemp insert. Everyone else is charging about $7 more for a US made diaper with cheap microfiber inserts. I am so impressed with every aspect of this diaper. Kudos to Thirsties!!

Let me start by saying, I love Thirsties products. However, I tend to have much better luck with the fitteds and covers over the pocket diaper. The absorbency is phenomenal and I don't have any leaks, but they seem to have trouble containing my 6 month old DD's poo! This was true of the old duo system and the new one size pocket. With the duo, DD would blow out the leg, but with this new one size, it's out the back. The vertical snaps are nice because the front doesn't fold over like the single row used to... but the rise setting is JUST too small on the middle setting so it is really tight across her thighs and I can't get it tight enough across her back to contain the "mess." But, the highest rise setting is too big still and the legs won't get tight enough that way. I think as she grows it will fit better when I can put the rise on the highest setting. Overall, I still use these every day because the absorbency is awesome, and to be honest, I think DD would blow out of even a disposable so I'd probably be cleaning her up anyways! I'm going to be trying some flats and prefolds again, as we switched over completely to pockets after she outgrew the newborn stash... but these pockets will still be super convenient for babysitters, grandparents, dad, etc. and will remain a staple in my current collection of fluff.

Before Use: Wash your One Size Pocket 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 new One-Size Pocket Diaper is ultra-absorbent, a cinch to use, and designed to provide a great fit for most babies from 8 to 40 lbs. Pairing our adjustable rise with our signature leg gussets ensures messes will be contained whether your baby is tall, short, slim or chunky. The included inserts provide eight thirsty layers of absorbency, making this a dependable diaper for both day and nighttime use. Plus, there is no need to remove soiled inserts before washing, toss the Thirsties One-Size Pocket Diaper in the washing machine and the insert will agitate free during the wash cycle. So many amazing features and made in the USA…how simply awesome is that?!
Our handy pocket 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. The included inserts feature three layers of serged microfiber snapped together with five serged layers of hemp jersey; eight layers in all! When using both inserts with a newborn simply fold down the hemp insert and snap together with the microfiber insert. Microfiber 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 to add more absorbency and prevent compression leaking.
Both hook & loop and snap closures are available on the Thirties One Size Pocket. While many families prefer hook & loop closures because of the simple, secure fit they provide, snap closures do have a few advantages of their own. Snaps are nearly indestructible and are more challenging to unfasten for a toddler who prefers to go naked.
