Thirsties Duo Fab Fitteds are soft, trim and absorbent!

What's a fitted diaper?  It's a cloth diaper that looks just like any other modern cloth diaper but it's not waterproof.  Fitted diapers generally have the size, shape and absorbency built in and many do not require the use of a fastener.
They can be used under the cloth diaper cover of your choice and make an excellent option for use with wool longies or shorties.

The Thirsties Duo Fab Fitted is a two-size system.  Size 1 and Size 2 are all you'll need to diaper from birth through potty training.  They're made of a super soft and luxurious velour material and come in super cute, bright colors.  Now they're even available in your choice of snap or aplix closure! (see below)

Both snap and Aplix® closures are available on Thirsties Duo line. While the majority of families prefer Aplix® closures because of the simple, secure fit they provide, snap closures do have a few advantages of their own. They are pretty much indestructible. As well, they are more unyielding than our Aplix® hook-and-loop closures, making them more challenging to unfasten for a toddler who prefers to go naked.

Do you own a snot sucker, aka Nasal Aspirator?

There's nothing more miserable than a snotty baby who can't breathe, can't nurse and can't clear their own nose.

Personally, I had a snot/booger experience once when I was a new mom and I nearly called 911 because I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my screaming inconsolable baby.  I tried nursing, she would not, pacifier-no, rocking, singing, dancing, driving...I seriously thought I might lose my marbles.  This was literally my first experience with my daughter where I couldn't calm her down and I honestly thought she was in pain in some way.

The truth, she was ticked off because she had boogers.  It seemed like it took me hours to figure this out.  If I had a Nasal Aspirator it would have been a lifesaver, in hindsight I wished I had put one on my baby registry.
Baby snot and boogers are probably not even something you're thinking about when it comes to parenthood and taking care of a baby, you've got so much other stuff on your mind and so many other needs to tend to.

That's why we think the BabyComfyNose Nasal Aspirator is a staple, an absolute must have!

How does it work?
The BabyComfyNose uses your own suction to remove your baby’s nasal mucus. Mucus is suctioned into the receptacle body and is isolated there. Use a wadded tissue in the body of the aspirator as a super absorbent filter. Laboratory testing has demonstrated that healthy human lungs can generate 5-10 times as much suction power as commercially available bulb or battery-powered nasal aspirators: this is why human suction aspirators are so effective. The design of the BabyComfyNose eliminates any possibility of oral contact with mucus and germs.
