You probably remember that we switched to cloth diapers earlier this year. I started with a big assortment of used items, sold by a kind reader at a very, very nice price.
I split them with my sister and never looked back, but our used items are beginning to show some heavy wear. We’ve had to repair several of our Proraps, and they just don’t have much life left in them. It was time to start looking at replacements.
On the recommendation of several readers, we recently got some Thirsties. These are among the more moderately priced diaper covers, and claim to be the best-selling diaper cover on the market. Based on the number of recommendations we received, I believe it!

Oh, look. My baby was helping with the post, and she knows how to spell my name! Do you see it? I always knew she was smart. She must know that this post is about diapers, and therefore about her.
We have really enjoyed our Thirsties diaper covers. The colors are adorable and they do the job, plain and simple. They have gussets – a must for us, with our rather bulky prefolds.
I think the crossover tabs are brilliant and obvious. Why doesn’t every cover on the market have those?
Ditto for laundry tabs, though we’re not used to them yet. I’ll have to train my diaper-changing children to actually use them, right after I retrain myself. If our old Proraps had laundry tabs, they might not need to be replaced already.
Like most diaper covers, size medium covers a lot of ground, from about 9 months until potty-training age for many children. If you want even more sizing flexibility, pay a wee bit more for the Duo Wrap. It has all the features of the standard cover plus snaps to quickly and easily change the rise. Did I really just say wee while talking about diapers?
Just for fun, we also got one of their Fab Fitted diapers. I have to be honest: I squealed just a little when it came. I can’t explain the thrill of a soft-n-squishy raspberry colored diaper, but there you have it. You’ll probably want to rub it on your cheek before you put it on the baby the first time. I can almost guarantee that this diaper will be the first one to get used every time. It’s not super absorbent, but is just fine for daytime use and is much trimmer than the prefolds that we normally use.
Speaking of absorbency, I have to confess one more thing: I think the Fab Doublers are irresistibly adorable too. Why would I care if it’s cute when it’s going to completely hidden from view? I don’t know, but I want them.
