Thirsties Duo Wrap Diaper Covers are one of our favorite PUL covers! The outside is a soft polyester and the inside is a laminate, which lets you wipe it off between uses (versus some covers which have fabric on the inside, making them difficult to wipe clean between uses). Double gussets at the leg openings help keep messes in!
At the waist, choose from Thirsties great new hook & loop (aplix) closure or snaps. Not sure which is for you? Here are our tips!
SNAPS: Great for older babies (past the size 1, over 16 lb). Older babies sometimes love to un-Velcro™ their diapers. And snaps will simply last longer through all the washings with no worries about the closure losing its stick over time.
APLIX: Ideal for the newborn phase, because of the adjustability (easy to get a good fit on a newborn) and because its quicker to put on and take off (especially when your newborn is protesting diaper changes!).
These Duo covers are unique, because the rise is adjustable... just make the diaper smaller for newborns, or unsnap to a larger setting for infants and up to approximately 18 lb.! Trim fitting (trimmer thanThirsties original covers), this is the preferred wrap to cover trifolded prefold cloth diapers. Also works great as waterproof protection over the popular Thirsties Fitteds, or any otherfitted diaper.
The double gusset on Thirsties Covers is what we really love. Some covers have just one leg gusset, but Thirsties covers have a second, smaller, and flexible leg gusset which hugs baby's thighs and makes them virtually leak-proof. You will have far fewer leaks than compared to disposables! Made with Lastin elastic that will not wear or stretch out.
Thirsties Duos are great covers for average, slender and/or tall babies! For overnight use, use with bulky diapers, or large babies, we recommend using the original Thirsties Covers.
Please note that based on babies in our retail store, Thirsties Duo Wraps seem to run slightly trimmer and smaller than the original Thirsties Covers. They are *perfect* for using with a trifolded prefold!
Size One Duos seem to fit 6-16 lbs.
Size Two Duos seem to fit 17-35 lbs.
The Size Two Duos are about the same size as the original Thirsties covers in Medium.
However, when the Size Two Duos are completely unsnapped, they seem to be smaller than the original Large Thirsties Covers.
Size 2 Duos have a rise of about 17.5"-18" whereas large Thirsties have a longer rise of about 20".
