Itti Bitti Review and Giveaway

We were so happy to be given the opportunity by itti bitti to review a diaper, that the anticipation grew that much more when it arrived during the Flats and Handwashing Challenge and we had to wait to try it out lol.

"Hey Mama! Look what we got in the mail!"

 A little info about ittibitti:
itti bitti is an Australian company that started in 2005 and has grown phenomenally, with itti bitti diapers now being sold in 25 countries! itti bitti launched into the USA in March 2011.
 Moms worldwide love the ultra trim fit, gorgeous fabrics, superior quality, amazing performance and the rainbow of colors.
Itti bitti provided us with the bitti tutto, itti bitti's only one-size diaper, in the color red. One of the first things I noticed (aside from the soft minky fabric) was once it was on Buggie, I was totally impressed with how it fit. The bitti tutto has 4 rise settings as well as over-lap snaps to get a sure fit on newborns and thinner babies. Bug is currently 16 pounds and 26 inches long (at 4.5 months) and fit on the first waist snaps and the lowest rise setting:

The bitti tutto comes with 3 soaker pad pieces:

As you can see, there are 2 sets of inside snaps in the cover, and the snaps on the soakers are color-coded to help you piece them together to get the best performance out of them. The soaker on the top right fits inside the cover perfectly in the lowest snap setting, while the long soaker on the bottom adjusts in length using the blus snaps shown (which are on the bottom of the soaker). The third is a mini soaker, and is shown snapped to the bottom of the long soaker. All the soakers are a 70% bamboo/30%organic cotton blend, and the short and long soakers are topped with a 100% polyester stay-dry layer.

The cover has many features itself, as well as a hidden PUL layer:

We've been using the long soaker snapped up to the smallest length inside the cover, snapped in on the yellow set of cover snaps. It's been excellent for day time use. Just to see how absorbent everything works together, I used the long soaker as I do during the day, snapped the mini onto the back of the short soaker and snapped it to the purple snaps up front and put Buggie to bed. The next morning? No leaks!(Itti Bitti does recommend washing and drying at least 3 times to let the inserts reach maximum absorbancy)

The bitti tutto has held up well through a few poop-losions without any seeping or leaking around the legs or waist, and no stains have set in either. Both the cover and the inserts wash up nicely. With the minky cover though, I do not recommend washing these with towels. I don't think many people do that anyway, but we prepped ours with a load of towels and (being picky about the cute new diaper...) I spent some time trying to get the lint off lol. Does anyone else line dry? I dry everything in our apartment on laundry baskets and the whole diaper dries nicely and stays soft.


Overall, I love this diaper! No pockets to stuff, but it gets a more thorough wash unlike an all-in-one. It fits my son perfectly, no leaks or red marks. The bitti tutto retails for $26.95, but you can win one here directly from itti bitti (in their choice of color) by entering below!
