- Inserts can be used individually or snapped together to provide four different absorbency and size options
- Newborn Insert – 3 layers of organic cotton
- Full size insert – 5 layers of hemp/organic cotton
- Organic cotton is a soft, fast-absorber designed to rest closest to your baby's skin (beneath the pocket sleeve); hemp is a stable absorber and pairs perfectly behind the organic cotton to add more absorbency and prevent compression leaking
Newborn Insert: 100% organic cotton
Full size insert: 55% hemp, 45% organic cotton
Before Use: Thirsties hemp and cotton products need to be washed and dried at least three times before use to rid the fibers of the natural oils. This is done separately from your other diapering products for the first 3 washes. Our hemp and cotton products will be fully primed and at their maximum absorbency after 8 wash cycles.
At every wash cycle:
-Prewash on warm
-Wash on hot
-Add another rinse on warm.
-You may hang to dry, or dry in the dryer on medium heat. If the diapers are stiff after line drying, you can throw them in the dryer on medium heat with some wool dryer balls to soften them.
Use enough water to soak and cover the diapering items and allow them to agitate.
Please avoid the following:
Sanitize or Whites cycles on HE machines
Routine use of Bleach
These practices and/or additives can void the warranty on your Thirsties products.
