The Snap version on this page. The Hook and Loop version is here.

Don't confuse this sized cover with the Duo Wrap. This one does NOT have snap rise adjustments. This is a true sized cover which comes in sizes XS through Large.

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 size LARGE of this Thirsties Cover is larger than the Thirsties Duo Wrap size 2.

A true-size diaper cover with snap closure. What is "true-size"? True-size or sized means that it comes in each size, XS, Small, Medium and Large. Unlike an adjustable rise cover or a one-size-fits-all cover, it doesn't have rise snaps, Not everyone likes the bumpy rise snaps on the front of adjustable covers, nor the bulk of the cover fabric in front when the rise is snapped down. This cover is sized so it is made to fit the actual size without rise adjustments. No cover bulk up front! The shape of the cover is not the same as the Thirsties Duo Wrap. It is roomier inside. Don't size up with this cover because it is generously sized. The XS cover is really nice over newborn fitted diapers. It is too big on small newborns, though.

The waist does still adjust since there are many waist snap selections to choose from. I find that not having rise snaps on the front does have an advantage for me when I hold the baby next to my body. It is more comfortable for me. I also think that true-size covers such as this are a bit less confusing for caregivers. It has gentle leg gussets and exposed laminate inside, also known as a wipe-clean interior.100% polyester with TPU laminate. FREE of VOCs, PVC, phthalates, lead, and latex. Another quality CPSIA-compliant, made in the USA diaper cover choice from Thristies.

The size Large is a big cover. If baby has outgrown the Thirsties Duo size 2, the size Large Thirsties Diaper Cover is the next size up after the Duo size 2. It is also a good nighttime diaper cover because it is roomy enough inside for extra doublers.

snap front diaper cover Small pictured. Very adjustable waist and it has leg gussets.

medium prefold Size Medium cover with size medium red edge prefold. The prefold lays right in there at full length without folding it down easily. This is a roomy cover. Great for pinning or Snappi fastening. The size Medium fits over the size large Workhorse. Small will fit over small or medium Workhorse. XS works with newborn or small Workhorse. XL Workhorse will work under either the medium or the large cover but I prefer it under the large cover but it depends on the baby's shape. What works with what is variable depending on baby's shape and your preferences for how you like things to fit. Give pinning a try! It really works.

very happy

I love the snaps! I have used velcro for 3 kiddos and it has finally worn out and has become a big issue to fix. Snaps are the WAY to GO!

Well made

Work great

I use these over fitted ,pad folded muslin and Birdseye flats and prefolds . Work well with all. No leaks and easy to fit on the baby. I wash them with the diapers and hang dry. Love GMD.

Oh snap! :)

My sister in law used hook and loops on her daughter and they worked out great for her, I tried them when my son was born and I just couldn’t get the hang of them, the Velcro kept digging into his stomach. I tried the duo wraps thinking that the adjustable sizes would make it better but they didn’t work for me either. My son is only 3 months but we’re using both medium and large prefolds on him. In all reality, I think he just grew too fast for the sizes we were buying. I was getting discouraged because I’ve always wanted to use cloth diapers when I found these! They fit him just as they should (a medium cover is snapped to the middle with his md diapers and a little looser with the larges-works perfect!) and there’s no uncomfortable digging in anywhere. The only bummer is the lack of selection when it comes to the designs, I’d love to get some cute ones like the duo wraps have, but like my husband says, “they’re underwear” lol it’s not enough of a complaint to remove any stars. I love these covers! Thank you :)

Diaper cover

Unfortunately this diaper cover did not work on my one year old grandson as he is able to easily pull the cover off. The snaps need to be stronger to hold.
