Thirsties Fab Fitted and Duo Wrap Review

I am living in diaper land 24/7 right now. That's life with a newborn. Sometimes it drives me nuts that I do not have more than two of the same brand diapers, they are all different. Bonus is that it makes me kind of an expert! I've lost count, but we have about 25 to 30 different brands. I've always loved Thirsties and I was excited to finally test them on a newborn. I received a Fab Fitted with snaps and a Duo Wrap with snaps to try on baby T.

Why do I love this combination? Because it is nearly bulletproof, yet very trim. It's my go to for putting under cute outfits because I know it will not ruin the outfit with leaks and we can avoid the 'cloth diaper butt' phenomenon. That was okay on a girl, but on my son - you know, a big bum would look a tad weird (I'm just being dramatic).

Don't let the slim look of the Fab Fitted deceive you. Our one month old pees A LOT. My first was a girl, so this is new to me. He just pees non-stop and his diapers are always so wet and full. While this fitted gets soaked, his bum remains dry to the touch and the Duo Wrap is really great at containing everything. Even if a tiny bit of a blowout escapes the fitted, which is rare, the cover takes care of it. I like it so much I'm thinking of buying a couple more Fab Fitteds to use with the same cover.

(sorry about the photos taken the day after we came home, a mess of a changing area!)

Another thing to love is the two sizes it comes in. Doesn't break the bank completely like sized diapers do, but the perfect sizing really does offer a perfect fit. In the photo (7 lbs 7 oz) of the diaper on my newborn it is actually very trim compared to other cloth diapers I put on him. Now he is weighing 10 lbs 8 oz and it fits really nice, I have it on the middle snap setting and it will probably fit him for another three months (he is getting very chubby). 

I'll be honest, I would be quite happy with a whole stash of these. I can't think of anything negative, except that they are not the cheapest. Still less expensive than many others. Not that I don't love all of our other sponsors!

  1. I am a big fan of the Thirsties brand as well, though I prefer their duo diapers over the duo wraps and prefolds (I have some of both). The price point is a bit of a negative for me too, but they really are a wonderful system and work great on both of my twins (who are built completely differently).

  2. Awesome! I love love love duo wraps, it's the only thing we use for night time.

  3. I love my Duo Wraps, I been wanting to try the fitteds since they came out, now especially since my son has been leaking at night and I am looking for a new night time diaper. Thanks for the review!

  4. Thanks for the review. I can use all the info I can find before buying my stash.

  5. Really glad to see this review; I have some of the duo fab fitteds for this bub still in my belly. I have heard good things about them, but not a review this in-depth. Can't wait to use them!
