When Thirsties Duo size 2 is getting too small on your toddler, the size Large cover is the next size up. Large is bigger than Duo size 2 but smaller than Duo size 3. It has room enough inside for a nighttime diaper.
The newborn-preemie size is suitable for preemies or for those who want something tiny and not bulky that truly fits your brand new full term baby for the couple of weeks. Use this over a preemie, newbie or newborn prefold (but not for over Newborn Workhorse since this cover is tiny).
The x-small size is good over Workhorse size small or for skipping size newborn diapers and starting in small or novice size prefolds. Understand that is will be big at first but it can be workable and newborn babies do grow quickly.
Size small fits over the size medium Workhorse and size medium fits over the size large Workhorse, generally. Don't go by just the size name (such as "small") but instead pay attention to the weight ranges because the size names vary from product to product. When planning your diaper stash, remember that paper and pen notes still work very well to help you figure things out.
There are no rise snaps on this cover.
The tiny Newborn/Preemie size is only available in the hook and loop closure version. In the picture the medium is not spread out well and it is really bigger than this picture makes it look. Go to SNAP VERSION.

Thirsties is a simple wrap-style cover with leg gussets. It is an exposed laminate cover which is also referred to as a "wipe-clean" interior. The PUL (waterproofing) is exposed on the inside for a more slick, wipe-clean surface. Simple and effective. 100% polyester with TPU laminate. FREE of VOCs, PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex. Made in the USA.
Preemie/Newborn is for tiny newborns. Oak and Acorn limited edition print pictured has sold out but this picture still shows this tiny size nicely. In size Large, this is one of the few covers that fits really well over the XL Workhorse or XL Prefolds. Actually having a cover that fits correctly is important in both the small and large sizes. Most adjustable covers are really adjustable "mediums" and don't fit well on newborns or bigger toddlers.
Fig and Bundle of Joy are limited edition prints - will not restock

Really fast delivery of the diapers. I love everything about these diapers, and will probably encourage friends to buy from Green Mountain Diapers in the future
As a first time mom, I got some of these covers well used and a bit stretched out from frinds, but still was impressed how well they work. I ordered a new one and love it even more. We use the size small (roomier than the duo wrap) diaper for at night with two prefolds (a smaller and larger one) we go all night with out any leaks. He is 7 weeks and over 13 lbs now and still no leaks. The hook and loop work so well for getting just the right fit quickly. However, I have found that when the diaper isn't stuffed enough is when I seem to have an issue with the hook and loop rubbing on his belly (as others have complained about too), but I have more of an issue with it with the duo wrap because they are more adjustable in size so you need it on the right size for your baby with the right amount of padding. I will order again from Green Mountain Diapers, great customer service and quick shipping!
I love this covers, I already used them with our two older sons. I got two more for our current baby. I especially love that they’re made in the USA.
Thirsties are great! I still have some from 2008 and they are still amazing. High quality elastic and an all around great cover. Love the aqua and rainbow on my 2 yr old, and the sized covers are fantastic. 32 lbs and wears a large sized thirsties over Xlarge green edged workhorses and prefolds.
I love these covers! After cloth diapering 3 babies and trying several brands, these are the best! I only wish they had more color options in the hook and loop non adjustable because they run a bit bigger than the others.
