Did your Thirsties Duo diaper inserts shrink?

Mine did. I am not sure if that is normal? One is now larger (by about .5" than the other. I can no long snap both snaps together.

Normal?

If not normal, should I contact the store I bought it from? Or the maker?

TIA

I had this happen with 1 of my 2 duos - I just make it snap and call it good - it's not worth dealing with the company (i'm lazy like that).

mine shrunk but was still able to snap together, (like the one insert "cups" the other).

Yup, hemp shrinks quite a bit. You can still snap and use, they'll be fine.

hmm I don't think mine did. If it did it is not noticeable at all.

My cotton/hemp insert shrunk, too. when I put it in the diaper I just always put the cotton/hemp one on top (side closest to baby's bottom) to make up for the size difference

Okay, I can't find it but I remember reading somewhere that the Jersey hemp shrinks so it cups (like the other poster said) the microfiber since the microfiber absorbs quicker than they hemp jersey. It's not a flaw, it was designed that way. HTH
