Mama’s Experience

Thirsties All-In-One Hook and Loop


I reviewed Thirsties AIO Hook and Loop style cloth diaper.

I own a few brands of AIO cloth diapers. AIO’s are always my go to nap diaper. They are typically absorbent enough for naps but not quite absorbent enough for overnights. My son is 18 months and he pees a normal amount while sleeping. He naps are 1-3 hours long one time per day. At night he sleeps 10-11 hours. I always try all the diapers I receive at least 1 time overnight. I call it the “overnight test” (very catchy name huh?).


This Thirsties Baby AIO diaper….PASSED! With flying colors! I am SO excited that I have an AIO diaper I can use overnights! This will make overnights at his grandparents house so much easier. They are not into the whole “cloth thing” as they call it. Which is fine, I know that cloth is not for everyone. Having an AIO option to offer them may make the overnight diaper experience with them a tad easier and maybe they will use cloth more when they watch him.

My favorite feature: The insert goes from top to butt!

You read that right. Every other AIO I have seen has the insert start at the butt/back side and fall forward towards the front/belly side. The insert moves around and gets curled up in there a lot of the time. With Thirsties design this doesn’t happen! It lays where you want it to; in the middle and flat. I think this is a mind blowing and such a great feature. I seriously have no clue why anyone would make the inserts go the other way now. You need to grab one of these diapers and try it out for yourself.


This Thirsties AIO has the best hook and loop laundry set up I have seen. They are strong. So strong my son has a super hard time undoing them. When he is just in a diaper and tee-shirt (hot summers ya know) he tries to take off his diaper sometimes. The velcro is very secure and it is almost (but not totally) impossible for him to remove this diaper.

    I had no idea they put that much effort into being a green company. Most of our reason for cloth diapering is financial, but I do love that added benefit of environmental friendliness. I would love to try some of their products and will keep them in mind when buying in the future.

    I liked your review, I just got my first AIO diaper, but have yet to use it since they just got done prepping, so I thought the part about where the “insert” part was is interesting. If I ever get them I will have to try them overnight since I have yet to find a diaper that works for it.
