Why I Love Thirsties
Posted by Kristi Bobo on 3/25/2016 to Company News
Since starting cloth diapering I've always been a “Thirsties Momma.” I've recommended Thirstiesto so many people because I not only love their products but I love what their brand stands for.
As far as the actual diapers I've used many of their products. I love the wraps if I just want an affordable solution and it's perfect for the days we're chilling at home. For the days where we're on the go, I love their all-in-one diaper. I also can't give the all-in-one diaper enough praise because it was deemed a favorite by my husband. Anybody who comes to my house and sees our diaper stash knows that I try every kind of diaper - we've got wraps, AIOs, pockets, and more, plus many brands as well (I guess that's what happens when you're a cloth diaper consultant and you want to be able to speak from experience to your clients). There were many times though that my husband would be so confused by what kind of diaper I had on my son that he looked through them at one point, grabbed the Thirsties AIO and said “This is where it's at. Too easy!” Since then when I'm recommending diapers I call it “The Daddy Fave.”
Another reason I really love this company is that all their diapers are made in the USA! That seems to be something that our country is going away from and I find it a HUGE bonus when looking at purchasing anything, really. I've always supported small and local businesses and though Thirsties is growing every day I love that it's made where we call home! This is also something that is huge to my Army husband so I can get away with buying some more fluff since it's made in the US and who doesn't want more fluff?!?
Just when I thought I couldn't love Thirsties any more...they took it to another level! I ordered a couple new diapers about a month ago. I was bummed when I saw a slightly damaged diaper. I mean I've bought and sold quite a bit of Thirsties products so I know this is rare, but it was still disappointing as I have a wild 4 year old and newborn therefore I dreaded the thought of trying to exchange a diaper. Still hesitant, I decided to see what their warranty policy was like in practice. Honestly, it couldn't have been easier! There is a form online and they made the process so easy. They shipped me the new diaper immediately. It arrived in an eco shipping bag - which I loved - that could be reused to ship the damaged diaper back to them in, and they included a pre-paid shipping label. Why do they want a damaged diaper you ask? Because they try to fix the diaper (which mine could easily be fixed with some additional stitching) and then donate it to a family in need who uses cloth. How cool is that?
What can I say, I love Thirsties! If you're looking for a company that not only has a good product but also has good customer service and a beautiful mission, buy Thirsties!
