FLUFF BUTT: Thirsties

I recently was given the opportunity to review the Thirsties Fab Fitteds and Duo Wrap covers with hemp inserts!
The Diaper

Fab Fitted
"Thirsties Fab Fitted are shaped for a trimmer appearance and are more comfortable for your mobile baby. Thirsties Fab Fitted Diapers are designed to hug your baby in fabulous comfort and functionality. They’re expertly crafted from stretchy and buttery soft textiles with a stay-dry inner liner that offers wetness protection for your baby’s delicate skin. Encased elastic wraps snugly-yet-gently around baby's legs and torso and provides the very best protection from leaks.
Only the best components come together to make Thirsties Fab Fitted Diapers. The internal soaker is composed of spongy microfiber terry that can absorb up to seven times its weight in liquid! A maximum absorbency of 18oz makes this diaper appropriate for both light and most heavy wetters alike. Touching your baby’s skin is an entirely unique microfleece that is oh-so-soft to the touch and works to keep your baby feeling dry, thereby helping to prevent diaper rash. Textile pilling and stained diapers is a thing of the past with the help of the specially-made microfleece inner layer. You will likely notice that this diaper maintains its appearance and supple feel longer than many other brands on the market. Finally, the velvety cotton velour outer layer offers seven total color options (plus white) in four sizes to ensure a perfect match of color and fit at every change!"

Duo Wrap Cover
"The adjustable rise of this wrap design means one size will last twice as long. In fact, only two sizes will cover your baby from birth all the way to potty-learning.

Similar in feel to our best-selling Diaper Cover, Thirsties® Duo Wraps are completely waterproof yet remain breathable, pliable, and very comfortable for your baby’s delicate skin. Durable hook and loop closures provide a perfect and secure fit at every diaper change. Leg gussets provide advanced leak-proof protection and bindings are super-soft against baby skin. All sizes offer convenient fold-over laundry tabs to protect your hook and loop closures from trapping lint in the wash."
My Opinion
First of all, let me start off by saying, "It was love at first site!"
I received two Thirsties Fab Fitted diapers with Duo Wrap Covers and hemp insers. When I opened the box, I wanted to put them on Caden right away! They are sooo cute! Even my mom (who is still refusing to CD) thought they were adorable! I love the bright colors with the white piping. Too bad they had to be prepped first!After I prepped them, they were put right to use! Actually the first time I ever used a fab fitted and duo wrap cover combined with a hemp insert was at night. I was terrified, because I had never CD'd at night before and all I ever heard on the CD forums I belong to is... "I can't find a good nighttime diaper." Well, you can imagine my suprise when I checked Caden in the morning and he was DRY!! That moment was when I realized that I could actually make this work for us.The Thirsties combo was my go-to night diaper for the first few months (I have since added pre-folds into the rotation), and is still one of my "I want to show of CBugs SUPER CUTE fluff butt" dipes!
I also love the fit of the combo, it's so trim! Actually it's probably one of the trimmest diapers we own! It's especially great right now with my MAXI-GROWER! (He refuses to stop growing for even a minute! hehe. :) ) This diaper fits under those "on-the-verge-of-being-to-small" pants!

I love this diaper and I know you will to! Which makes me so excited to tell you all that ONE of you will get the chance to win a THIRSTIES DUO WRAP!

Cloth diapering is so good for your baby. My daughter had horrible diaper rashes in disposables and we haven't had that problem with cloth. There aren't all those chemicals up against their skin, so it's better for them.

My one "do tell" item for cloth diapering is that my daughter had horrible skin irritations from disposables, even after wearing one for just an hour or two, but the cloth diapers are amazing for her skin.
