Thirsties NEW Duo AIO Cloth Diaper Review

thirsties duo aio 1

The Duo AIO cloth diaper is a brand new, U.S.A. made item from Thirsties.

Like the duo wrap, duo diaper and duo fitted, the duo AIO comes in size 1 (6-18 lbs/0-9 months) and size 2 (18-40 lbs/9-36 months) so you can truly take your child from birth to potty training with 2 sizes.

You can choose snap or hook & loop closures, and each size has a snap down rise to get a custom fit with 3 sizes within each size.

The duo AIO has leg & waist elastic like the fitteds rather than the double gussets of the wraps & pockets.

It also has a tunnel soaker (3 layers of microfiber) like the duo fab fitted. It doesn’t have the hemp that makes me love the duo pocket, but the tunnel design allows you to add absorbency, as well as allowing for more thorough cleaning and faster drying. The inner of the diaper is soft, stay-dry microfleece.

Here you can see that the duo AIO is much more similar to the duo fab fitted

Than the duo pocket (accidentally had the duo pocket on the small setting vs the AIO’s large in this photo):

The sizing is also more similar to the fitteds.

Here is the size 1/small setting measured folded and stretched:

Here’s the Thirsties Duo AIO size 1/small setting on my 6 week old, 8.5ish lb son:

To compare, here he is the same day in a Duo Pocket (print), duo fab fitted (honeydew) and wrap (honeydew also.)

I have pictures of the fab fitted on my son at days old and 6 lbs 5 oz in my newborn cloth diaper post if you’re curious about fit on a smaller baby!

This diaper is designed to be both easy to use, and affordable. 8 solid colors (plus white) retail for just $15.75, and prints are $1 more. This is $3 less than the duo pocket diaper however, hemp inserts retail for $9.00/2 pack. So, if you need the extra absorbency of hemp all the time, in every diaper, you’re not really saving over the pocket since it includes the 2 piece insert.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these to someone new to cloth, who wants something affordable, that’s also super easy to use and wash!

FTC compliance: I purchased these items at normal retail prices. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and all opinions are my own.

    Abby’s Lane has the solid colors for $15 and the prints for $16. I don’t know why their price is slightly lower but it’s a really good deal. I just got mine in the mail (blackbird print) and I can’t wait to try it. My son is due in a couple of weeks, so hopefully I’ll get to try all of my fluff soon!

      That’s where I got mine. I bought before they lowered the price & they refunded me .75! Plus free shipping. Can’t beat that!

    […] a size 2 duo diaper I bought about 20 months ago. However, as I was getting ready to post my Thirsties Duo AIO review, I realized I’ve never really done a proper duo diaper review. My June 2010 review was really […]
