Thirsties Duo Wrap: Review & Giveaway

Winner is...
Comment #185
Congratulations ANDI
 
A couple of months ago I got my first Thirsties Duo Wrap.  I loved it so much that I asked Thirsties if I could review one of their diapers on my blog.  What impresses me about Thirsties is the high quality and low price of their wraps.  I also love how soft these are.  I feel like I'm snuggling Crackers in a t-shirt when I wrap him in a Thirsties!  The wraps come in 2 sizes so they fit your little one longer.  Crackers is a 22lb 14 month old and wears the size 2 on the lowest rise!  (They also fit my 31lb 2.5 year old comfortably).

Our beautiful, soft "mango" duo wrap!
Here's something really cool about Thirsties products:  They're made by work at home moms!  I was really surprised by this because I thought of them as a big company.  In fact, they're only 5 years old and the company was founded by a mom with just $100 and an old sewing machine.  What great quality they have achieved.  All of the moms live near the warehouse also, which cuts down on carbon emissions that come from moving the product into the warehouse.

Obviously, Crackers likes showing off his duo wrap.
I have to admit, I was a little confused and intimidated when I started looking at the Duo Hemp Prefold.  It is made differently than any other insert or prefold I have seen.  It is made specially to reduce drying time and help improve the wash.  It's really a brilliant design and not so scary once you've used it a few times.  It's also super soft, I think it would be my favorite, if I were the one wearing the diaper.

Check here for your nearest Thirsties retailer.
Order a Thirsties Catalog to be mailed to your home!

BUY IT:
You can buy Thirsties products right now (and I highly recommend considering it).  Check your local retailer, or your favorite online diaper source!  
I bought my first Thirsties Duo Wrap from cradlejoy.com - see my Cradlejoy review for details about a 15% discount.

WIN IT:
One reader will win a Thirsties Duo Wrap and a Duo Hemp Prefold in their choice of color and size!
This contest is open to residents of the US and Canada only.  It will end on  3/27 at noon EST.  Please leave a comment for each entry you are eligible for and include your email address.  If I am unable to reach the winner within 48 hours, I will be forced to draw a new winner.


How to Enter:
You may enter using any or all of these methods.  There are a total of 5 possible entries per person.
