itti bitti was created in 2005 by Sue McLachlan in Australia. Sue was unhappy with how the bulky cloth diapers fit her itti bitti daughter and started to design her own diapers. Since launching in Australia, itti bitti has become a worldwide company.
Eco-Distribution USA was kind enough to send a bitti tutto for my review. The first thing that caught my eye was the print on the diaper. It is called Carnivale and is one of the limited edition prints they are currently offering. The outer shell is a very soft minkee fabric.
On the inside, itti bitti has created a “poo fence”. This is a gusset that isn’t only in the leg area – it goes around the back too. This should help reduce blowouts. The bitti tutto comes with 3 soaker pads. This allows for you to customize the absorbancy to your child. The snaps that hold the soaker pads in place are color coded for ease of use as well.
My son can wear the bitti tutto for a considerable amount of time in comfort. The soaker pads do an awesome job as well. The area that is against my son’s skin feels and looks dry – but we all know that is not after he has been in them a while they are not dry.
I also gave the bitti tutto the night-time test. My son sleeps on average 10 to 12 hours a night. Of course, I used all three soaker pads for this test. He had previously been using another cloth diaper with 2 inserts and it was a bit bulky. I don’t think he was really comfortable in that diaper cause he would cry in his sleep several times a night. When I placed the bitti tutto on him it was still a trimmer fit than the previous diaper, even with all three inserts. I am happy to report he did not cry one bit that night; but, we had a leak. I did jump on the itti bitti website and read about what they suggested for night time use. They suggested using another mini soaker pad. I believe this would help with the leak since it wasn’t a huge leak.
You can buy the itti bitti bitti tutto from Eco-Distribution USA for $26.95. They offer other itti bitti cloth diapers, additional soaker pads, and other accessories.
