The hook and loop version is on this page. The snap version is here.

Don't confuse this sized cover with the Duo Wrap. The Thirsties Cover does NOT have snap rise adjustments. This is a true sized cover which comes in sizes Newborn/Preemie 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 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.

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 diaper cover 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.

Great diaper covers

We are very pleased with these covers and we look forward to using them for many months with our baby.

Great diaper cover!

I use this cover with the workhorse diapers and it’s hands down the best cover for my lo. It gives the best protection that really covers around the legs so no leaks!

Good, trim cover

The specific sizing of this cover is great! I ordered an xsmall for my 13 pound boy and it fits nicely. Wicks moisture well.


Thank you

These take the confusion and overwhelming feeling about cloth diapers out. My daughter is 18 mos and they fit great!

Great for small babies

I love the thirsties newborn/preemie cover! It’s great for really small babies. It fits from 4-9lbs and I find that range to be pretty accurate. It gives a nice trim fit. It fits under the cord and it’s super easy to use! Thirsties has great Velcro and I highly recommend it.
