Thirsties deserves so much more than this quick post introducing you to their new “baby” but circumstances are preventing that right now!
I had the best of intentions to have this post written last week then the 24 hour stomach virus hit family. Praise the Lord it was *only* 24 hours. After everyone, including my poor mom who flew in for a visit, fell prey to this microscopic monster we left for our vacation in San Diego.
At least we didn’t have to cancel vacation, right??
So, my backup plan was to snuggle into our 2 room suite, get the kids in bed and type up this post. Wrong again. Turns out 2 rooms is stretching it and snuggling I won’t be doing. Just an FYI, La Quinta in San Diego is NOT equivalent to La Quinta in DeSoto, TX. Just sayin.
Alas, here I am. Typing away on my phone. Everything in this post has been done mobile so please be kind about typos and dead links.
Now to the juicy stuff! Thirsties has a one size pocket!
About time! I mean that in jest. But it is great to have a quality, Made in the USA, affordable, absorbent, trim fitting, poo containing one size diaper on the market.
The same great features we all love about Thirsties products are found in the new one size pocket.
I love the reliability of Thirsties leg gussets, soft & strong Aplix and the sleeve pocket. Most of all I love the insert that comes with the one size pocket: newborn size microfiber insert snapped on top of a regular sized cotton/hemp insert. This is a very *thirsty*combo!
Thirsties is giving away ONE of these fabulous new one size pocket diapers to oneof you. You get to pick closure and color. Enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter form for your chance to win.
