Thirsties is well known as a rock in the cloth diaper industry.

True to their values and steadfast in their mission, customers can trust the Thirsties brand.

The mission of Thirsties, Inc. is to make it easy and affordable for every family to choose cloth while simultaneously investing in our local economy and sustainable business practices.

We are committed to building our business in a sustainable manner by focusing on the health of our babies and the environment. Only the best USA-sourced components are chosen for our products in order to reduce our carbon footprint, to help support domestic textile mills and our local economy, and to ensure that Thirsties diapers will last wash after wash. We are committed to creating only the highest quality products and dedicated to providing exceptional design and unparalleled performance while saving you money.

Over the last several months, Thirsties has gone beyond making products and spent time and effort revamping their website with the thirstieslogoconsumer in mind.

New additions to the website (aside from a visual makeover) include:

Cloth Diaper Savings Calculator.  Not sure how many cloth diapers you need?  There are 2 options with the Thirsties Cloth Diaper Savings Calculator

  1. Choose a package (Economical, Convenient, Absorbent).  Then see a breakdown of the quantity and costs of each component all compared to the cost of disposable diapers.
  2. Input a custom quantity into each product box.  Values automatically calculate as you customize.

Wipes are also included in your calculations!  All to often we fail to figure in how much we spend on those convenient packages of disposable wipes.

Years ago when I began cloth diapering the figures thrown out seemed so fabricated to me.  Perhaps I was just a bit skeptical.  But, now with the excessive amount of data available at our fingertips it’s hard to argue with the savings shown with even the most conservative numbers.

I am happy to see that Thirsties provides footnotes and graphs with their calculator.  All of this information combined is exactly what the biggest skeptics (often number crunching dads!) need to be convinced of the savings.

I had fun playing with the calculator and creating my own stash.  Here is the savings and graph for 24 hemp prefolds, 14 covers (4 xs, 4s, 4m), 10 Duo AIOs, 10 doublers and 20 wipes:

graphsavings

If Thirsties products are all you ever used you would not be scraping the bottom of the barrel.  Even at a low price you can still get cute, absorbent, convenient diapers PLUS they’re Made In the USA!

Thirsties has also added a Cloth Diaper 101 section, Product Catalog and Brand Video to their website.  The CD101 and catalog are available for PDF download if you prefer offline perusing.

If you’ve ever wanted to see some behind the scenes footage of a big cloth diaper company watch this cute video!  I enjoyed seeing the big fabric machines and real (and very happy!) employees sewing, packing boxes and answering calls.  The Merrill Family loves what they do and it shows.

To celebrate the launch of these fabulous new features Thirsties has allowed me to customize a giveaway just for you! I went the economical route and will be giving away 4 Duo Hemp Prefolds and 1 Duo Wrap.

    I cloth diaper to save money,as well as keeping my sons cute little bottom rash free. He is extremely sensitive to the chemicals in disposables. Cloth is just so cute,fun and what is another load of laundry when you have children anyway?I wash a load of diapers every evening.Sposies are ridiculously expensive, chemically laden and fill the garbage can up way too fast. We are to be good stewards of what God has given us.

    I use cloth diapers to save money. Of course it has become more of an addiction, so while we may not be saving a ton, it will show more over time when we add a couple more kids to the bunch and we don’t have to buy new diapers. :-) Many of my friends don’t care so much about the savings, they are more concerned about the TIME they think it takes or the supposed “ick” factor, so I’m not sure that the calculator would covert them at all.

    With my first I used disposable diapers and the cost was outrageous. Since I’m not the new young mom I was 5 years ago, now that I’m expecting #2 in the next 9 weeks, I feel more comfortable about using cloth diapers. Not only to save money but I feel like it would be better for my babies skin.

    I do cloth diaper to save money. I’m guessing we’ve saved $1500-$2000 by using cloth, but I haven’t calculated it recently. I think the calculator would be useful, but the problem is that they’re assuming a person will be using all Thirsties products. I was able to get prefolds for less than $2 apiece and theirs are $8. But I guess we’re smart people and we can figure out a minor difference like that.

    I’m doing it more to reduce the amount of trash that we produce rather than for the money, although that’s a nice bonus. Except that there are too many cute diapers out there, I don’t know if I’m saving that much! (well, maybe if I have another kid, but hopefully not for awhile) The savings calculator might be useful for some people who are concerned about the upfront cost of cloth diapering…it definitely costs more to start CDing than to just buy a pack of disposables. But if they can see the savings over the long run, that might help sway people.

    The cost savings is the main reason we are choosing to CD. It’s what convinced my husband to consider it and the reason why he is on board. The simple charts that displayed in graph form the savings of cloth vs disposables is what I used to show him the difference. To save even more money, I’ve made the majority of our stash!

    I love using cloth. I’m so glad I was told all about it before I have birth to my daughter. She is our first and I look forward to her time in cloth and her future siblings as well. Such a money saver and so much better for the environment. Not to mention… Adorable!

    The environment is the biggest reason for me. But since I’m unemployed of course cost savings is a huge factor. I’ve used thirties since my LO was a newborn. And I can say that they are the most reliable out of my small stash of 10 covers. I also love that they keep it domestic.

    Money is the main reason we started cloth diapering, and it was not a hard sell at all to convince either my husband or myself we would save tons of money. It seems obvious- if you only have to buy something once, instead of 24 times, you’re going to save some serious cash. Believe me, I can coupon and find deals on disposables, but it is much easier with cloth diapers.

    Saving money is definitely a factor in us using cloth. Especially for my husband, who is less eco-conscious than me. Pointing out how much dough we would save made the scale tip in my favor when i was lobbying for cloth.

    We CD both to save the moola & to help reduce our contributions to the local landfill. We have to pay for any trash that won’t fit in a pretty measly sized bin– there’s no way that we would have made all those newborn diapers fit without having to slog to the store to buy trash tags! Besides that, during two walloping snowstorms it was fantastic to just have to run downstairs to start some laundry when diapers were running low & the roads impassable. New benefits to CDing pop up every day!!

    I definitely chose to cloth diaper to save money, among several other reasons, and I would never go back (despite people continually telling me to use sposies for convenience at night and at other times). I’m not sure even the comparison charts would convince some people I know to CD. I have a coworker whose daughter is 6 months older than my son, and I tried to convince her many times (even showed her some really cute Rumparooz I had delivered to the office around Cmas!), but she was adamant that she was sticking to disposables. I respect her choices, but I wish she would have given CDs more of a chance.

    I am cloth diapering to save money and for the environment and they are more healthier for babies. I do believe the cost calculator will help to convince people to switch to cloth. Every parent should use cloth, it’s better for everyone.

    Yes, one of the many reasons we cloth diaper is to save money, and I do think that a cloth diaper calculator would help convince some of my friends to cloth diaper too.

    Saving money was one of the reasons I started using cloth diapers. I think the calculator is fun and would be handy to show someone concerned about the upfront cost vs. long term savings.

    With 2 in diapers, cloth has saved me a TON!! Having an easy way to have people see the savings is a great way to convince them I think.

    We started cloth diapering to save money. While we definitely save money, we are so glad we aren’t putting all those chemicals on our girls! The calculator would definitely be great for a skeptic!

    Money savings is definitely a big part of it, but I’ve not gone the cheapest route…I have mostly pockets and AIOs, and can’t stop shopping. It’s just better for baby’s bum, and we’ll diaper another baby later on. I’ll definitely get prefolds for newborns, since we started when DD was 2 months old.

    We started using cloth to save money after seeing the savings calculator. After arguing my case with friends, I not only re-convinced myself that I was doing the right thing, I got 2 other friends on board as well! Hurray!

    We cloth diaper to save money and because they are so cute! So many benefits to cloth diapering. An easy calculator to show money savings can never hurt! Even if isn’t the deciding factor.

    We cloth-diapered our second baby and plan to do so with our third, due in July. Although my reasons for doing so were more for health and environment, the cost-savings is what won over my husband!

    Yes, we are CDing to save money! My husband is still skeptical as to whether it has saved us any, but I know it has! :)
    I will have to show him the calculator on their site to see if he will finally be convinced! :) Thirsties has been our go-to brand for bullet-proof, long-lasting covers! <3 them!

    Yes,and yes. Thirsties was the gateway to my cloth diapering experience. I wanted to try cloth diapers but not invest a ton because I wasn’t sure I’d like it. Now at 16 months we are still cloth diapering and happy to be.

    Yes, we definitely use cloth to save money with 3 kids under 2 and all in diapers! I love that calculator, it could be helpful to encourage someone to try cloth diapers especially if they are money motivated.

    I cloth diaper, in part, to save money. The rest is for baby and the environment. I just like to show people the math, whether it convinces them or not. It definitely gets a rise out of them! :)

    The more info the better! The hubby has been on board since day one and there are so many types and brands out there that as first time parents we were a bit lost on where to begin to build up our stash.

    Yes, we are, among many, many other reasons! ($ is just icing on the cake.) The calculator is impressive, and I can see how it would convince someone to give CD a try.

    I first started cloth diapering because my daughter was having an allergic reaction to disposables. Now, I also do it for cost savings. Coming this far (1 year now), I just couldn’t bring myself to spend as much on a box of disposable diapers that won’t last a month than I would spend on a cloth diaper(s) that could last another year.

    I am cloth diapering to save money and the planet. A lot of people I talk to are skeptic so I think the calculator plus a quick demonstration is enough to convince someone how easy and economical it is to cloth diaper.

    I am cloth diapering to save money. I don’t know if this calculator will help convince those who are deciding. There are so many more variables. One big one I see is that you can’t change the age at which you stop using disposables, and they don’t give you the cost break down of the disposable diapers for each age, so you can’t even figure it out manually.
