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.

  1. Wow, it’s amazing how green Thirsties is!! I have a couple of their hemp inserts and I love them! They are my go-to for night time. I think I could trust a Thirsties AIO for night also.

  2. I had no idea their diapers were made in Colorado or that their facility was powered by wind. So cool

  3. I love how they’re trying to support local economy. Good to see they aren’t all about profits.

  4. I like that it has strong velcro, I tend to favor snaps because I don’t want to deal with weak velcro!

  5. Love thirsties duo wraps with the double gussets! Fits my daughter so much better than any other brand we’ve tried!

  6. I’ve really wanted to try Thirsties for a while now, especially with in their new prints and colors!

  7. 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.

  8. Wow, I can’t believe this lasted you overnight! I didn’t know much about their AIOs until this review. I love their brand and how they aim to be sustainable.

  9. Can’t wait to try them on my little girl 🙂 she’s getting a good amount here in just a week or two

  10. Excellent review! I like how you also do a brief overview of the company as well as the product. I haven’t tried Thirsties’s redesigned AIO, but based off your review, I would like to give it a try! Thanks!

  11. Love that this is a true “made in the USA” company and love that they use wind power. Bravo Thirsties

  12. I don’t know to much about Thirsties, I do however have a old, hand me down one, that’s a pocket style. it doesn’t work to well, but these look like they are good, and fairly trim, which i love.

  13. 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.

  14. I have used Thirsties covers (and love them), but have never tried their AIOs. I’m sure they’re awesome!

  15. Comforting information about the hook and loop. This would be my favorite closure system if brands had good, strong velcro. Good to know Thirsties brand knows what’s good!

  16. Thanks for all the information about Thirsties. It’s great to see a company that is so dedicated to the local community! I love our OS pockets and need to try the AIO.

  17. I love knowing this worked for you as an overnight diaper! Finding more diapers that stand up to that test is always great! I also loved all of your facts about Thirsties as a company! Great review 🙂

  18. We love Thirsties and the old style Duos!! We haven’t had the opportunity to try them since they upgraded, but I love Thirsties and their commitment to keep production inside the States! That’s a major selling point for us ♡

  19. i also love how green thirsties is. i was worried about overnight diapering but i definitely wana give these a try. ill also probably use the overnight test on all my diapers lol

  20. I have yet to find a H&L diaper that doesn’t irk me. I’d like to see how these suckers stand up.

  21. Wow! I love that their company is powered completely by wind energy!! I never knew that, that is great.

  22. I think my favorite thing about this company is that they are so green! I love that their buidings are all run on 100% wind! Also, the fact that they are made in the USA is a huge plus for me!

  23. We’ve tried thirsties covers before so I already love the company, but I had no idea how environmentally friendly they actually are as a company!

  24. I love all the different ways they are green! The wind power, and local manufacturing! LOVE that they truly care!

  25. It’s great that they worked overnight. That is what worries me the most about starting cloth diapering!

  26. I never knew what a green company thirsties was. The duo wrap is our all time favorite diaper so this is another reason to love them!

  27. Thirsties is my favorite AIO diaper! I have had great success with them, even at daycare. So easy and they dry quickly.

  28. I love how green their company is!! And their prints are so amazingly cute!! Talk about really taking steps to making sure they are sustainable and that people WANT to be sustainable!! Thirsties is helping save the world and I <3 em for it!!

  29. Wow– I loved learning the details about how green the company is. It am still learning about cloth diapering, but I’ll have to watch to see how the front to back vs. back to front aspect works when my little one arrives!

  30. I read that they are in CO, that’s so cool its local to me! I love that they are powered by wind energy!

  31. I didn’t realize they use a fabric that remains soft after being air dried. I gotta try it! That’s currently by biggest turn off with many of my AIO’s

  32. I can’t wait to have my baby girl and try out cloth diapers! They all look so much cuter than disposables and are eco friendly. I love!

  33. I actually have one of these in my newborn stash, and now I know that I’m right and they would work for overnights!

  34. I love how they try to be green and sustainable, and I love their prints! Would love to try one of these

  35. WOW! I’m impressed! as the owner of a sustainable clothing company, I am always looking for companies with similar values. Wind-powered warehouse?? AWESOME!

  36. It’s so great that it has a strong hook and loop set with strong velcro. my little guy can take off his diaper in a snap!! I need a diaper that at least makes it a little tougher for him, lol! I love the different colors and patterns too…so cute!!

  37. I actually have one of these and never would have thought of trying them overnight! I am so excited to read this. I am definitely going to have to test them overnight myself!

  38. As a new mom, I would love to see how these would work out for my son. I really love the durable inserts offered with these!
