Thirsties recommends these amounts based on washing every other day:

Newborn: 20-24 diapers
6-12 months: 14-18 diapers
12-24 months: 12-16 diapers
Potty Learning: 4-8 diapers

The number of diapers you need all depends on your baby’s output. Younger infants tend to “go” frequently whereas children approaching the potty learning stage go through less diapers. As in everything parenting, you know your child best. Additionally, your cloth diapers will hold up better if you rotate their use over a decent-sized stash. The numbers listed here are a good place to start.

How many covers do I need?
A single Thirsties Duo Wrap or Thirsties Diaper Cover can be wiped clean and reused 3-5 times before requiring a full washing.

Newborn–9 months: 1 wrap for every 3 diapers
9 months–18 months: 1 wrap for every 4 diapers
18 months to potty: 1 wrap for 5 diapers

*Please note, not all diapers require Read More


Thirsties Animalia

This week on Instagram, Laura asked us which closure option we prefer: hook and loop or snaps?

(If it just occurred to you that you may not be following Thirsties on Instagram and you navigate away for a minute to find their amazing feed, I won’t be offended. All the best tips, tricks and secrets can be found @thirstiesinc on Insta!)

Naturally, this got me thinking that it was time for a Thirsties Cloth Diaper Showdown, The Closure Edition. And most of all, I wanted to answer some questions like ‘why DO we have two closure options?’ and ‘why DO people have a preference?’

As I began my prep for this post, I also realized that some people feel very passionately about their closure options. There are die hard hook and loop lovers and then some that are so sure that snaps are obviously the better choice. But what makes Read More


Each December, I can’t actually believe that another year has passed us by. An entire year of sharing cloth diapering, low impact living with families around the world and cute prints and colors too. This year, Thirsties upped their game with gorgeous new prints and exciting exclusives, brand new products and helpful cloth diapering resources for the entire community.

If 2017 was the year of the natural fibers, 2018 was the year of Thirsties Groupies product requests. Size 3 Duo Wraps, the potty training pant, and the natural pocket were all born of Thirsties Groupies ideas and entered the market as new products this year.

If you haven’t been keeping track of all the fabulous prints this year, let’s take a look back at the best cloth diaper prints of 2018!

One of the most common concerns we hear at our boutique about cloth diapering is that it ‘must be difficult’ to cloth diaper a newborn or that ‘cloth diapers probably won’t fit a newborn baby’. The truth is, cloth diapering a newborn isn’t really that much different than cloth diapering an older baby. The right diaper, a great fit and the right absorbency can completely change your opinion of cloth diapering your newborn.

More often than not, parents struggle to cloth diaper their newborn because they are trying to make a system work for them that isn’t truly designed for newborns. Although one size diapers can be great for larger babies, the Thirsties Natural Newborn All In One is truly designed to fit your newborn and cater to the diapering challenges of an infant. In this article, we’ll breakdown some fit tips, fiber facts, prep and care and even troubleshoot Read More
