Review by: Kelsey on May, 02, 2014
Let me start by saying, I love Thirsties products. However, I tend to have much better luck with the fitteds and covers over the pocket diaper. The absorbency is phenomenal and I don't have any leaks, but they seem to have trouble containing my 6 month old DD's poo! This was true of the old duo system and the new one size pocket. With the duo, DD would blow out the leg, but with this new one size, it's out the back. The vertical snaps are nice because the front doesn't fold over like the single row used to... but the rise setting is JUST too small on the middle setting so it is really tight across her thighs and I can't get it tight enough across her back to contain the "mess." But, the highest rise setting is too big still and the legs won't get tight enough that way. I think as she grows it will fit better when I can put the rise on the highest setting. Overall, I still use these every day because the absorbency is awesome, and to be honest, I think DD would blow out of even a disposable so I'd probably be cleaning her up anyways! I'm going to be trying some flats and prefolds again, as we switched over completely to pockets after she outgrew the newborn stash... but these pockets will still be super convenient for babysitters, grandparents, dad, etc. and will remain a staple in my current collection of fluff.

Before Use: Wash your One Size Pocket diaper shells along with the terry portion of the insert once before use. The hemp portion of the insert needs to be washed and dried at least three times before use to rid the fibers of the natural oils. This is done separately from your other diapering products for the first 3 washes. Inserts will be fully primed and at their maximum absorbency after 8 wash cycles.
At every wash cycle:
-Prewash on warm
-Wash on hot
-Add another rinse on warm.
-Hang dry the shells or dry in the dryer on low. Inserts may be hung to dry or dried in the dryer. If inserts are stiff after line drying, you can throw them in the dryer on medium heat with some wool dryer balls to soften them.
Use enough water to soak and cover the diapering items and allow them to agitate.
Please avoid the following:
Sanitize or Whites cycles on HE machines
High heat in the dryer
These practices and/or additives can void the warranty on your Thirsties products. A 15 minute cycle on hot in the dryer once a month is beneficial to lamination, and will not void your warranty. You may use high heat on inserts.

Thirsties new One-Size Pocket Diaper is ultra-absorbent, a cinch to use, and designed to provide a great fit for most babies from 8 to 40 lbs. Pairing our adjustable rise with our signature leg gussets ensures messes will be contained whether your baby is tall, short, slim or chunky. The included inserts provide eight thirsty layers of absorbency, making this a dependable diaper for both day and nighttime use. Plus, there is no need to remove soiled inserts before washing, toss the Thirsties One-Size Pocket Diaper in the washing machine and the insert will agitate free during the wash cycle. So many amazing features and made in the USA…how simply awesome is that?!
Our handy pocket design features openings on both sides of the diaper between the stay-dry microfleece and waterproof layers. These openings allow for easy insert stuffing from either side of the diaper and make for easy cleaning. The included inserts feature three layers of serged microfiber snapped together with five serged layers of hemp jersey; eight layers in all! When using both inserts with a newborn simply fold down the hemp insert and snap together with the microfiber insert. Microfiber is a fast absorber designed to rest closest to your baby's skin (beneath the microfleece sleeve); hemp is a stable absorber and pairs perfectly behind the microfiber to add more absorbency and prevent compression leaking.
Both hook & loop and snap closures are available on the Thirties One Size Pocket. While many families prefer hook & loop closures because of the simple, secure fit they provide, snap closures do have a few advantages of their own. Snaps are nearly indestructible and are more challenging to unfasten for a toddler who prefers to go naked.
