Thirsties Duo Wrap cloth diaper covers have made cloth diapering even more affordable. More and more families are choosing to cloth diaper for their wallets as well as for the planet. Modern cloth diapers and covers have made cloth diapering easier than ever - no pins or dunking required! Using cloth diapers can save an average family $1,000-2,000 or more over the cost of disposables - and will keep 6,000 disposable diapers out of our crowded landfills.
Thirsties Duo Wrap covers are the newest way to cloth diaper your baby for less. The new 2 stage diaper covers fit from the earliest days all the way through to toddlerhood - for real. The new 2 stage cover system was developed after extensive testing and consumer research revealed that one size cover systems were actually requiring most families to buy 3 sizes instead of one.
Since most one size covers do not fit well until about 10 pounds, families often buy a newborn size cover to get them through the first few weeks. Then, when their toddlers reach 32 pounds or so, families were forced to buy another set of covers to get them through until potty training. With the two stage system, families are able to buy two sizes instead of three, saving even more money.
The new Duo Wrap covers are very trim fitting, even when the rise is snapped down to fit smaller sizes. Each size has three rise snap settings to allow for maximum adjustability. The covers fasten with soft Aplix hook and loop tabs and are available in 8 colors.
Because the Thirsties Duo Wrap is so trim fitting, Thirsties recommends it for use with trim diapers such as a tri-folded prefold or Thirsties Fab Fitted diapers. For overnights or bulkier diapers, Thirsties recommends using their current sized diapers since they offer a roomier fit.
