What to Use in the Thirsties Duo Wrap

The Duo Wrap is a waterproof cover, and you will need to add absorbency inside. Thirsties offerings for absorbency in the Duo Wrap are the Duo Hemp Prefold, Stay-Dry Duo Insert, and Duo Fab Fitted diaper. One of the benefits to using a two piece system is that you can use the wrap up to 5 times in between washings. This means that you need to buy less wraps than diapers or inserts. The following is some information about each option:

  • Thirsties Duo Wraps are my favorite cover! I love that they have elastic on the front to create a a better fit, others do not and leave a gap. They are the only ones that fit my little guy well. I wish I would have gone with a whole stash of these but am new to cloth diapering and am testing lots of things to figure out what works best. Thanks for all the info!

  • Very helpful post! I’m new to cloth diapering and have been trying to learn what’s what and what would work best for us. I bought pocket diapers and am not as impressed with those-still too bulky for my little guy; I’d love to try the duo wrap system with the hemp prefolds or the inserts.
