At Thirsties we always say diaper laundry does not have to be complicated: -Prewash on warm -Wash on hot -Add another rinse. However, during your cloth diapering journey, you may need to tweak things within your wash routine like load size, water level, detergent, amount of detergent etc. Here is a list of signs that indicate you need to tweak your wash routine as well as the possible causes behind them.

There are so many different Thirsties cloth diaper systems to choose from and one of our favorites is the Thirsties newborn fitted.
In this article, we are going to discuss the newborn fitted system, how to fit it on your baby and how to pair it with a cover for maximum leak protection.
The Newborn Fitted System
The name ‘fitted’ actually comes from the fact that the absorbency is shaped to fit your baby, verses a prefold diaper that would need to be folded to fit your baby.
The newborn fitted itself will be all the absorbency you could ever need in an overnight diaper, but because there is no waterproofing attached to this diaper, you will need to pair it with a Thirsties extra small cover or size one Duo Wrap.
The body of your fitted diaper is comprised of three layers of the Thirsties bamboo/cotton blend, while … Read More
The most common heart conditions for children are congenital heart defects. So what is a congenital heart defect? A congenital heart defect is an anomaly in the structure of a child’s heart, usually diagnosed via ultrasound either in utero or after birth.

Much of what we discuss in this article can realistically apply to children with not only chronic heart conditions, but chronic illness as well.
Families of heart warriors can be impacted by seemingly the smallest things and can endure weeks of struggle as a result. For instance, sending your child to a playgroup or to school with the beginnings of a cold may sometimes seem ok … Read More
