The hook and loop closure version of this is here.
The Newborn snap version is here.
The Collection Kit of 5 color-coordinated diapers is here.
The elastic is so soft and stretchy and the design is great. The "feel" of it is just right. I do think it is best at 4 or 5 months and up though. Like any "one-size" item, it's really quite big on a young baby.
Natural fibers inside, this one-size fits most all-in-one diaper is made in the USA. This easy-to-use cloth diaper includes 11 thirsty layers of natural fibers: 3 layers of organic cotton in the body and 2 soaker pads with 8 layers of the same hemp/organic cotton. As with all "one-size" items, they are really quite huge on brand new babies. I like them (all kinds of one-size things) starting after the newborn time, perhaps 11 pounds and up and choose newborn sized items for my brand new baby. Made in USA.
Care and Use:
Prewash on warm. Wash on hot. Add another rinse on warm. Hang to dry or dry in the dryer on low.
Outer – 100% polyester with waterproof TPU laminate. Inner Liner – 100% organic cotton. Inner Absorbency – 2 layers of 100% organic cotton. Inner Soakers – 8 layers of 55% hemp - 45% organic cotton
The prints are so much lovelier in person.
I recently started using cloth diapers for my 21 month old boy. The Thirsties fit his frame and absorb well. I'm very happy with them.
I like this diaper with the exception of 2 things. One is the size. My 20 month old is fairly tall and 26 lbs. and this barely fits both in the rise and in the waist. The lower set of snaps are just too low on her hips and she gets red marks no matter how I fasten this. The second thing that I don’t care for is that the soakers are sewn into the front of the diaper instead of the back. I’ve diapered 7 kids over the last 22 years and never seen one like that. It doesn’t seem to affect the functionality of the diaper but it seems thicker in the front and for that reason it bugs me. I always try to put the diaper on backwards and realize it and have to turn it around. Not sure I’ll get used to it. If I had bought this when she was smaller then I’d probably be in love with it and buy more. It does dry faster inside than the Grovia side snap all in one I bought. And I like that it is wider than the Grovia between the legs. But it’s just too small for her and I wish I hadn’t spent the money. Back to prefolds, flats and workhorses.
This diaper fits my baby well. It absorbs well too.. I just find that it starts wearing out relatively quickly. See my pictures. I got the Grovia aio at the same time as the Thirsties. My Thirsties is already (otb maybe 6-8 times so far) getting pretty worn. I have a solid wash routine, no stain or stink issues. There are bumps forming in the cotton. I’m not exactly sure what it is.

I like Thirsties as a company, but this diaper is a miss for me. It's soft and absorbs well, but I don't like the design. The tongues are a pain to spray with babies eating solids. Poo gets into every crevice and under all of the flaps. The tongues inside also have this weird pocket that seems to serve no purpose, but collects lint in the wash. You have to pull it out manually with your fingers. Also, these are the only diapers I've ever had a mold issue with. I've had several of these get mold, even the newborn when my baby was tiny. I have a strict wash routine, but it still happened. Go with Blueberry instead!
