Something Old, Something New: A Thirsties Diaper Cover Giveaway!

Thirsties fans have been waiting a long time for this news: the hook and loop closure on diapers, covers and fitteds is now wider, stronger and longer-lasting! You’ll find the new hook and loop closure on their covers, fitteds and AIO diapers.

Here’s a quick photo comparison using my old (mango) Duo Wrap and an improved (aqua) Duo Wrap:

One of the biggest problems encountered by Thirsties fans was the hook and loop closure snagging on other stuff in the laundry. Thirsties wanted to address this issue with the new aplix tabs. I’ve tested my new and improved cover this week and the hook and loop is definitely stronger. It’s noticably harder to unstick the tabs from the strip on the waistband and from the laundry tabs. They do not come undone in the wash anymore.

The new Thirsties hook and loop is stronger thanks to a wider design; the larger surface area means more sticking power. They’ve also upgraded to a more durable hook and loop product so your Thirsties covers should last a lot longer.

So I’m really impressed with the new hook and loop, however it did not eliminate the waistband problem.

With the new hook and loop changes come some color/print changes (Duo Wraps and sized covers are now available in the same colors/prints), so if you are feeling nostalgic and want to grab some of the older styles at deep discounts before they are gone for good, check out Kelly’s Closet (aff link) and see what’s left in stock! I grabbed my new covers from Kelly’s Closet because they were one of the very first shops to have them available.


TWO of my readers will win a Thirsties Duo Wrap prize package!

Something old: The first name I draw will win a nostalgic prize package containing a size 1 Thirsties Duo Wrap with hook and loop in the “Hoot” print, and a size 2 Thirsties Duo Wrap with hook and loop in the lovely “Meadow” (green) color. These are the discontinued styles that will eventually disappear!

Something new: The second name I draw will win the newly designed hook and loop Thirsties Duo Wraps size 2 in the “Baby Bird Blue” print PLUS a green Snappi diaper fastener. You can try the new aplix closure and let me know what you think!

Enter using the Rafflecopter below and good luck!

  1. I love the family tree exclusive print – SO cute! And trees are Hubby and I’s favorite!

  2. good product…

  3. Rachel Kasinger says:

    These are my go to diaper cover, nice thick PUL. I love the colors too, and the fact that they fit to a high weight in the size 2. My first is a late potty trainer, he is 46 pounds and I can still get the cover over a prefold, I still have a dry guy even after his heavy wettings. Truthfully I have always wished they would do something to improve the aplex, but I’ve put up with the needed repairs because of the great fit. Hope I win, with two in the same size I run low on covers by wash day.

  4. Jenni Grenier says:

    I love the Baby Bird Blue print!

  5. Misty Brown says:

    The new tabs are soooo much better!!

  6. I love the blackbird print! If I had a chance to buy my stash all over again, it would definitely include more Thirsties!

  7. Danielle Smith says:

    I love the blackbird print!! We have one with snaps, but I am finding that we are a Velcro family!! (And baby!! cant seem to get the snaps tight enough on my skinny boy!!)

  8. Jessica O says:

    I love the Polka Dance print! So excited for the aplix on these diapers!

  9. Michelle hill says:

    I would love polka dance :)

  10. Joelyn Metzler says:

    I use flip covers but I’ve really been wanting to try Thirsties with my 2nd-born….love the Aqua color because it’s fun for a boy or girl!

  11. Jenni Jones says:

    I would love any of them! Hoot and Blackbird are my favorites, though!

  12. Heather R. says:

    Expecting baby #2 in March and this is going to be our first time cloth diapering….so excited!! I would love to add these to my stash!!

  13. Brianne Rushing says:

    I think Blackbird or Meadow are my favorites.

  14. Thanks for showing a comparison of new vs. old!

  15. I love the hoot print! I am pregnant with my second child and will be using cloth diapers for the first time. I hope I win these!

  16. Tanya Nix says:

    I love the hoot print!

  17. Jessica Hughes says:

    I love Polka Dance!

  18. Mary Schuh says:

    I really want the Polka Dance print; that’s the only print I don’t have of Thirsties.

  19. I don’t own any thirsties, jus got my first flip cover. Are they comparable?

    • I would say not, Brianne. The PUL is a bit thicker and more stiff on a Thirsties cover. Flip covers have a thinner, softer PUL and no double/inner gussets. Flips are higher priced. I love both brands, though, for different reasons!

  20. jessica long says:

    baby bird is super cute and Owls are a fav of mine! I am not super sold on snappi yet maybe if I had a new one that might be cool!

  21. I love the new limited edition Baby Bird Blue! Thirsties Duo covers are my FAVE and have been for for years (and same ones are still being used!). Thirsties does make a high quality product ;-)

  22. The “GroVia Kiwi Pie Fitted Diapers.” The pattern is cute.
    The “Newborn Simplex – giraffe or cow pattern.”

  23. Amanda Kepler says:

    I love thirsties!!! I wonder… Do the bigger tabs irritate baby’s belly/thighs??

  24. I love the hoot print! It’s adorable.

  25. Love the polka dance print! Sooo cute!

  26. Shalaina S says:

    I love the Scottish storm print, but I already have an AIO like that. I think I would choose either Mango or Mud if I were to win.

  27. I love the thirsties baby bird!

  28. I love the hoot print or just a plain brown color. I already have the old applix and would love to have some with better.
