Good for average to chunky babies, not great for skinny babies/toddlers.
Good for average to chunky babies, not great for skinny babies/toddlers. We got the Duo Wrap size 2 when DS was 18 months old and 20 pounds they *just* fit him on the lowest rise and the aplix tabs crossed over each other. Now that he is even more active (and more slim) they literally fall off of him. We use a trifolded medium prefold under these. I really loved the Duo Wrap size one but the size 2 has not been a good fit for my skinny minny.
I absolutely love this these covers!
I absolutely love this these covers! I have them in size 1 and have used them on my son since he was born around 7lbs and now he is 6 weeks at 10.5lb and they have never leaked. I use them with the newborn prefolds and the workhorse diapers. Sometimes when my LO poops in the prefolds it will get into the cover but never outside. When he poops in the workhorse diaper it has never even touched the cover.
I had the same issue with the Velcro as Megs with my newborn.
I had the same issue with the Velcro as Megs with my newborn. I wish i would have bought the ones with snaps instead because i haven't had any problem with my other snap covers scraping my baby's tummy. Other than that the double gusset is awesome and the cover itself apart from the Velcro discomfort has held up well and haven't experienced any leaks. I'd just say go with the snap version.
I have many different wraps/ covers and these are by far the best.
I have many different wraps/ covers and these are by far the best. We have been using them since birth and at 4 Mos and almost 17 pounds we are ready to go up to size 2. Duo wraps with the new aplix over a pad folded flat make a wonderful trim and leak free option!
I just wanted to say Thirsties has an amazing customer service!
I just wanted to say Thirsties has an amazing customer service! I received a defective cover (one of the snap-down rise snaps didn't work) and had a replacement for it, free of charge, within a week after contacting their customer service. They made it super easy, too! They send you the replacement and then you send back the defective one in the same package with a label they give you. Definitely impressed!
