How Many Diapers Do I Need?

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

Meeting #TeamThirsties

thirsties warehouse

Laura here, Thirsties social media coordinator. After a couple years of cloth diapering, writing reviews, and contributing to my sister’s blog, First Time Mom, I started working for my favorite cloth diaper brand, Thirsties. For me cloth diapering, social media, plus motherhood are a match made in heaven and I love my job.

For two years I’ve been working for Thirsties remotely but this past fall I visited the office in Loveland, Colorado. On my visit I had the thrill of getting a behind the scene peak at the warehouse. More importantly, I met all the wonderful hard working people who make Thirsties cloth diapering magic happen. Here is a bit about my trip and what I learned about Thirsties on the way.

What You See is What Your Get

My time at the Thirsties office and warehouse confirmed that with Thirsties what you see is what you get. … Read More
