REVIEW:Thirsties Duo Cover 1st Impression

I've officially started testing out Thirsties new covers, which is designed to be trimmer and only have 2 different sizes for purchase. My daughter, Rita Clare, is 24 lbs (21 months) and falls into the size 2 category. First of all, the color choices available are super cute. Second, the medium Thirsties covers tend to be a bit bulky in the back waist area, since it covers a big weight range (18-28 lbs). I'm hoping this will prove to be a trimmer fit, even though the weight range is 18-40 lbs. Third, the Duo covers also have the wonderful leg gussets the others have-hooray!

She's wearing it now and it fits just like the other Thirsties covers but has a lot more fabric in the front, which folds in with snaps. I tried the first snap on RC but it is pretty clear that she's in the second snap. In the first, the front of her fitted diapers shows some, which could cause some leaking. We're trying it a naptime for a good test...will post more with more uses.

Second Time Around

Well, I officially had my first prenatal visit for our second baby and I'm already 13 weeks. It was interesting going through the checklist of "don'ts" to keep the baby safe. I realized I have come a long way these past 2 years and am definitely raising my family greener. But how can I improve to care for this little baby inside me better or equally as well as Rita Clare? I'll have to do some brainstorming...
