New to Cloth Diapering? A Post and Giveaway from Thirsties

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you know that one of my favorite cloth diaper companies is Thirsties. They have amazing customer service (AMAZING) and their products are made in the USA. Plus, the products are pretty stinkin’ smart. You’ll see my review on the Fab Fitted here, the Duo Pocket Here, the Hemp Prefold Here, and right now I am working on the statistical review of the AIO (but you can see my video of it here). Their diaper cover was also voted by Padded Tush Stats readers as the Cloth Diaper Cover of the year in last year’s Diaper Awards, and their hemp insert was voted Insert of the Year.

I am thrilled that they have agreed to post this helpful post for those of you new to cloth diapering. Plus they are hosting an A-MAZING giveaway (see the end of the post). So check it out!

Tara Porter

Tara Porter began using cloth diapers in 2011 when she felt that using disposable diapers was costing too much money. The problem was, a lot of the highly recommended diapers weren’t working for her baby. What she finally discovered was that her baby was skinny and a heavy wetter, and that diapers worked differently for those baby types. Because of her professional work with survey design and statistics, she designed Padded Tush Stats as a way to determine how different cloth diapers worked on different babies.

Tara moved on to other career endeavors in 2014 but can still be found online blogging about health and fitness at Fit Baby Steps.
