Thankful For Thirsties! Thirsties One Size Pocket Diaper Review & GIVEAWAY!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and being thankful for so many things, I wantd to share our experience with Thirsties Cloth Diapers with you!  I am so thankful for being able to use cloth diapers on my baby girl and that is why we celebrate Thankful For Cloth Month all month long during November here at The Bee Hive Buzz!


The fab team at Thirsties sent us one of their super absorbent One Size Pocket Diapers to try!  Its different than our other pockets.  And in a very good way!


This is the Scottish Storm print!  My husband loves this one because his mother's side of the family is of Scottish.  We even had our wedding party in kilts along with my husband in his family tartan (each family has their own special kilt plaid colors).  So this one is one of his favorite prints out of all of our cloth diapers.


My favorite diapers are always.....the fast drying diapers!   I have a schedule for diaper laundry but if we get busy, I can't always wash exactly when I need to.  So when I'm behind and diapers need to get dry fast, the ones that dry quick are my favs.  Plus I line dry everything so air drying can take a while.  Our Thirsties pocket drys faster than most of the other pocket we have.  I think its the thin inner microfleece lining.  It seems thinner than some other microfleece we've used but I like it!  Its a good thing for me because the dry time is so fast!


And its got these great gussets that fit Emma perfectly around the legs!  They are really soft gussets too.  I've had 2 other diapers that have gussets around the legs that really rub and dig into Emma's legs sometimes.  But these are really soft.  They are snug but not too snug.   I know red marks from cloth diapers tend to look worse than they really are.  But its nice not to have red marks at all.


The snaps are really snug too.  I do have to put some effort into unsnapping them but that is also a good thing.  Because my toddler is a smarty pants and she knows how to get her diaper off even if its a snap diaper.  So snug snaps are awesome.  Having a toddler remove a poopy diaper and run around the house with a dirty butt is no fun!  Thirsties pockets do have a hook and loop option too if you don't like snaps.

This diaper is a One Size diaper so it fits from 8 pounds to 40 pounds so pretty much from birth to potty learning, making it a very economical diaper.


The inserts are cool.  The diaper comes with two of them.   They're cool because of the way you can snap them together. You an either use them separate or you can snap them together because they have snaps on both ends.  This way you can customize the absorbency of the diaper.


Plus the pocket has 2 openings for easy stuffing and the inserts come out of the diaper in the wash so you don't have to un-stuff soggy diaper inserts when its time to wash.  The less mess on my hands the better.  I'm a finger food girl.  I was born with my own set of attached eating utensils and I love to use them.  So meals on laundry day are always few and far between thanks to the un-stuffing factor and the fact that I can never seem to scrub my hands enough after washing diapers.  Diapers that do the work for me are always on the top of my love list!



Thirsties are made in the USA too and they have an A+ Better Business Bureau rating thanks to their awesome service and great reputation.  There are so many things I love about the Thirsties company.  Not just the fact that the diapers are awesome.  The mission of Thirsties Inc. is to make it easy and affordable for every family to cloth diaper while at the same time, investing in local economy and sustainable business practices.  Thirsties makes sure that only the best US made materials are used to create their products.  Thirsties are also made by a group of fabulously talented women and many of those women are able to work from home.  This mama is a big fan of working from home and it sounds like Thirsties is a place the place to work!  A company that is dedicated to its customers and provides high quality,  affordable products, supports local economy and growth and supports local families and WAHMs is a company that I can definitely say I am thankful for!
