Thirsties One Size Pocket Diaper Trial

I have a few diaper trials that I will be posting over the next few weeks but I wanted to start with the Thirsties One Size Pocket Diaper.  This is a relatively new diaper on the market by Thirsties and I was so excited to win a pair from another blogger.  As soon as I got them I was excited to put them to the test with my diaper trial.

Number times of uses: 18
Number of leaks: 6 (all with only one insert, 0 with both inserts)
Longest wear without a leak: 3 hours, 30 minutes (both inserts)
Big Booty factor – 4 (with both inserts)
Best Use: Around the house

     * Nice colors with contrasting piping
     * Available in snaps or hook & loop
     * Options for insert configuration based on baby's size or needs
    * Hemp insert along did not last very long and leaked frequently
    * Average bulkiness with both inserts

When I got them I was glad to see something different, two inserts: a short microfiber one for the newborn stage and a larger hemp one for when baby is bigger.  The inserts even snap together so that you can double them up.  My daughters are both average size and not considered heavy wetters so I went ahead and prepped the larger hemp cotton insert to use.  After 12 uses I had a 50% lead average and I was very discouraged.  I love Thristies products and I thought that this diaper might be a fail for me...and then I remembered the other insert.  Once I added the second insert, for the next 6 uses, I didn't have another leak and I even had one use that was 3.5 hours. 
Overall I was happy with this diaper once I started using both inserts.  I don't think I would risk it when out of the house with just one insert, but this is a fine diaper for around the house.  I especially love that there are pocket openings in the front and the back so that you don't have to pull out the inserts (it agitates out in the wash).
