Thirsties Duo Diaper is an ultra-absorbent pocket diaper delivering
dependability as a day or night time diaper. Our handy sleeve design
features openings on both sides of the diaper between the stay-dry
microfleece and waterproof layers. These openings allow for easy insert
stuffing from either side of the diaper and make for easy cleaning.
There is no need to remove soiled inserts before washing. Simply toss
soiled Thirsties Duo Diapers in the washing machine and the inserts will
agitate free during the wash cycle.
The included inserts feature two layers of serged microfiber terry
snapped together with five serged layers of hemp jersey; seven thirsty
layers in all! Microfiber terry is a fast absorber designed to rest
closest to your baby's skin (beneath the microfleece sleeve); hemp is a
stable absorber and pairs perfectly behind the microfiber terry to add
more absorbency and prevent compression leaking.
By the way...did you know that Thirsties' new hemp jersey is like no
other on the market!?! We (finally) found a knitter right here in the
USA to custom knit the hemp textile to our specifications. You will find
this hemp is thicker, softer, and holds-up better than any other on the
Pairing the adjustable rise with our signature leg gussets ensures
messes will be contained whether your baby is tall, short, skinny, or
chunky. Plus, Thirsties Duo Diapers are a cinch to use...even for the
occasional caretaker. Simply stuff the insert in the sleeve of the
diaper and wrap around your baby.
Both snap and Aplix® closures are available on Thirsties Duo line. While many families prefer Aplix®
closures because of the simple, secure fit they provide, snap closures
do have a few advantages of their own. They are pretty much
indestructible and are more unyielding than our Aplix® hook-and-loop closures, making them more challenging to unfasten for a toddler who prefers to go naked.
In an effort to maximize affordability of cloth diapering Thirsties
created our Duo line. This means all Duo products are available in 2
sizes which will cover your baby from birth to potty. Each of the two
sizes in the Thirsties Duo line feature three rows of snaps to adjust
the rise to your baby’s shape; it is like having THREE sizes in one. Proudly manufactured in the USA

Before Use: Wash your Duo Diaper shells along with the terry portion
of the insert once before use. The hemp portion of the insert needs to
be washed and dried at least three times before use to rid the fibers of
the natural oils. This is done separately from your other diapering
products for the first 3 washes. Inserts will be fully primed and at
their maximum absorbency after 8 wash cycles.
At every wash cycle:
-Prewash on warm
-Wash on hot
-Add another rinse on warm.
-Hang dry the shells or dry in the dryer on low. Inserts may be hung
to dry or dried in the dryer. If inserts are stiff after line drying,
you can throw them in the dryer on medium heat with some wool dryer
balls to soften them.
Use enough water to soak and cover the diapering items and allow them to agitate.
Please avoid the following:
Sanitize or Whites cycles on HE machines
High heat in the dryer
These practices and/or additives can void the warranty on your Thirsties products. A 15 minute cycle on hot in the dryer once a month is beneficial to lamination, and will not void your warranty. You may use high heat on inserts.
