Thirsties review/giveaway!

First of all I want to apologize for being absent lately! We have been under the weather (aka battling one of the worst bugs this year!) and I had to take care of two little special someones. We are not yet 100% but thankfully much, much better!
Thank you all for being patient!

Now on to the review ;)

Thirsties is a well known and well loved company! Started in 2004, they have strived, and succeeded to make fab diapers for fab babies! Here is their mission:

 "Thirsties line of cloth diapers were launched in 2004 in an effort to offer sustainably produced and quality designed diapers at affordable prices. Our mission is to make it easy and attainable for every family to choose cloth while simultaneously investing in our local economy and sustainable business practices."

One of the things that I personally LOVE about Thirsties, is that all of their diapering products are made here in the USA. This is important to me and I love supporting local companies!

Also, their diapers are adorable. Seriously cute fluff! Look at some of their new prints!

Aren't those gorgeous!?

Thirsties is currently making their famous fab fitted which comes in many beautiful colors, their sized diaper covers, their new duo wraps (a two sized cover system), and their new duo diapers (an all in two). They also provide prefolds, inserts and an assortment of different accessories!

For review I received the duo wrap and a stay dry duo insert to use inside it.  

The duo insert is WONDERFUL!! It is two inserts, one polyester and one hemp/cotton blend. They snap together for easy use and easy laundering. The insert is super soft and after we prepped it, it is super absorbent! All I have to do is lay it in the wrap and put it on EJ. Like a trifolded prefold but without the work, and with much more absorbency. Also I love that I can decided what material is against EJ's skin. You could use the fleece or the hemp if you want all natural fibers against babies bum. An extremely versatile item. I bet you could use these as a pocket insert as well and would work fabulously! Few things can beat the combo of microfiber and hemp for heavy wetters!

As far as the duo wrap is concerned, it is one of my favorite covers. You all know I love wool, but this is a close second. I love how the cover is soft and moves easily so it is not sticky, sweaty, and it doesn't restrict movement.  Another thing I love is that they come in your choice of aplix or snap closure. I prefer snaps as they tend to last longer and my little magician can't get it off!

They thing that really surprised me about the duo wrap was the sizing. They come in two sizes (size one and size two) and each size is adjustable by a snap down rise. With EJ being 26 pounds now and having a 18 inch rise, I need adjustable. I need a diaper that will fit him well and will fit through potty learning. A generous diaper will fit over his huge fitted diapers, and will be comfortable while being leak free. The duo performs! The size 2 duo is a large cover and very generous in its sizing.  While all other covers either don't fit, or are on the largest setting, he wears the duo comfortably on the medium setting. He has plenty of room!! I was thrilled with this! When he wears this over his duo insert, the trimness can not be beat.

I have been a long time fan of Thirsties. I have had their covers since we first started cloth diapering. I will attest to their quality and customer service. Almost two years ago, when one of my diaper covers had a seam that came undone, Thirsties paid to mail the cover back, fixed it, and sent it back to me within a week. Time and time again they have proven to be one of the best products out there and they stand by their products.
True work horse covers for a great price!

So I just know you are wanting in on the Thirsties love!!! Well you are in luck!
