Thirsties Year in Review 2020

Thirsties products and prints of 2020

2020, the year everyone can’t wait to say good-bye too, amirite!?! Before we put 2020 in the rearview mirror let’s take a moment and remember that though this year filled the world with much heartache, Thirsties as a community and a company, saw some rainbows amidst the storm.

Reusables to the Rescue

When disposable diapers and even toilet paper were hard to come by reusable products like Thirsties cloth diapers and wipes came to the rescue!

The global pandemic and resulting lockdowns brought many new families to the cloth community. We are so grateful for our fabulous tribe, The Thirsties Groupies, and how they welcome and help cloth diapering newbies. We also have to thank our wonderful retailers who put in many extra hours serving the cloth community, pivoting their business practices, and keeping their chins up during uncertain times.

Do It All: Thirsties Natural All In One

Sometimes, we need a diaper that does it all. The Thirsties Natural All In One is the do it all diaper. It’s the one diaper that provides a huge amount of absorbency, leak proof exterior and is a one piece, one use system. If you need something easy on the go, easy to clean and super trim, you need a NAIO.

In this article, we will discuss the sizing, fiber facts and construction of the Thirsties Natural All In One.

Referring to a cloth diaper as an All In One diaper, or an AIO, means that everything you need for a single diaper change comes in one piece.

All cloth diaper systems are made of two parts: something waterproof to prevent leaks and something absorbent to hold in liquids. An AIO combines these two aspects in one single piece diaper. … Read More

Happy Thanksgiving!

Since much of my life involves walking around circles and picking things up off the floor, feeding six dependents (three fur babies, three of the human variety, plus one husband), cleaning up after six said dependents–and my favorite, laundry– it’s easy to get caught up in all of these every day chores that I like to gripe about.  I’m glad that at least once a year, there is a time when I am reminded to sit and reflect and be thankful for all of the wonder, opportunity, love and good fortune that surrounds me. Here are a few things for which I am grateful this year:

My Dog: My dog Bear is well over 12 years old. She’ll be 13 in February and I appreciate every day that I have with her. I got her from a local shelter when she was 11 weeks old and I have known her … Read More

Blowouts: One of the Big Downsides to Disposables

Just before our first child was born I remember taking the newborn-sized diapers out of the package and marveling at how how small they were. I imagined lifting tiny legs and wiping the teensy-tiny cheeks.  Those first few diaper changes are a new and exciting experience, as are all the “firsts” you will have with your child. But be warned: diaper changes can and will get ugly and you will eventually learn to fear “The Blowout“.  Because I now use cloth diapers on my son, our blowouts have been few and far between and have happened only when he is wearing disposables–like on the plane.  What better time to have a wriggly, poo-covered infant than when you are surrounded by silently staring strangers? But I digress.

The first few bowel movements your baby has will be meconium–a sticky black substance left behind in the baby’s intestines from … Read More
