Getting Started With the Thirsties Duo Wrap and Duo Hemp Prefold

I have put together some packages that will show you what you will need to start cloth diapering – including the accessories. When you are first starting off, it is difficult to know what you will need. The diapers in the packages are enough to last two days between washings. The Thirsties Duo Wrap and Duo Hemp Prefold is a two piece diapering system. The Duo Wrap is a waterproof cover that can be adjusted at the waist and the rise. The Duo Hemp Prefold is a flat, absorbent diaper. You can either fold it and fasten it on baby with a Snappi or diaper pins and fasten the Duo Wrap over it; or simply trifold, lay into the Duo Wrap, and fasten on baby. You may fold a Hemp Insert into the prefold if additional absorbency is needed. I have made two charts. One for size 1 and one for size 2. You will not buy both at the same time. The warranty for your diapers starts from the day of purchase, so only purchase the diapers that your baby can wear now. Size 1:

  • Thanks for the cost breakdown. The BIGGEST drawback with cloth diapers is the initial investment, but it works out in the end.

  • This is SO helpful! I have lots of friends who ask me about what they need to get started, and now I can just send them a link to this post. Wish it had been around when I was picking and choosing, but we ended up with Thirsties wraps + prefolds anyway, so I’m glad for that! :)

  • Good information to know! We started CD when our son was 15 months old and we have another one coming in a month. Trying to figure out how to start with newborns!
