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:

  • These wraps are great! I use flats in mine and they have never leaked!

  • We love our duo wraps! We use prefolds and hemp inserts. They are the only things we have found that make it through the night without leaks!

  • I’m in love with the Fab Fitted, but I never thought to use an insert!

  • i have three fitteds and covers for nighttime.. but i am struggling to get a good fit because the fitted seems so bulky under the cover.. it causes the cover to sit make red marks on her legs way out of the crease of the leg where a diaper normally sits (if that makes any sense).. any suggestions?

  • My girlfriend uses the Thirsties Duo Wrap with simple cotton prefolds. She almost never gets leaks like I often do with my pocket diapers. I wish I’d bought some Duos instead of some of my pockets.
