itti bitti Reviews and Giveaway


This review is for the itti bitti OS bitti Tutto, the itti bitti wet bag, and the itti bitti cloth wipes.

Bitti Tutto


Fits 8-44 pounds

Price Per Diaper:  ★★☆☆☆  This diaper retails for $26.95.  While this is moderately expensive for a diaper, this diaper does have some benefits and customizability that may be worth those precious pennies.  This diaper is available through my affiliate Kelly’s Closet, affiliate link to right.


Leaks:  ★★★★☆  I did wear this diaper on Miss A at naptime and for night use.  Surprisingly, I had no leaks at night, but did have a big leak during one nap.  How does that happen?  I attribute this nap leak to increased fluid intake during the day.  However, this only happened once.  See fit for another possible reason for this leak.  The tutto has a unique design for the inserts.  All inserts are snapped in with color coded snaps so you know which insert goes where.  This is great when you are folding diaper laundry and don’t feel like fiddling with figuring it out!  The inserts are trim and you can customize the absorbency depending on what your child needs.  Also, the tutto features a “poo fence” that runs along both sides of the diaper around to the back.  This contains all mess from leaking out!



Fit:  ★★★★☆  As with most snap diapers, I found that one snap setting was far too tight and one was far too loose.  For comfort, I had to go with the too big setting.  However, a diaper that is far too loose leads to leaks.  The bitti tutto does have a tremendous amount of snap settings, but my daughter is between snap sizes right now.  I do feel that this diaper has a nice fit though.  There is a row across the front of waist snaps and two snaps on each tab to prevent drop tab.  Itti Bitti took it one step further to have a better fit for newborns.  There is an extra waist snap further in the tabs that can be covered as the child grows so that there is no snap mark on baby.  When this snap is in use, simply tuck the cover into the hidden pocket, and when the child no longer needs this snap, simply cover it back up with the tab.  Also, the bitti tutto has cross over tabs, a must with skinny babies.  The front of the diaper also has the traditional 4 snap down rise to adjust the rise of the diaper as the baby grows.



Ease of Use:  ★★★★☆  Even now, after many uses with this diaper, it may take at try or two to get the snaps right.  I am certain that if this was the only type of diaper in your stash, that you would have no trouble.  Being that it is a snap diaper, this may not be the diaper for dad or grandma.

Washing:  ★★★★☆  This diaper washed very well.  The exterior minky fabric is still plush and extremely soft and the inside is still just as soft against baby skin.  I do find that with nasty poops, the diaper does stain a little.  I found that a little sunning or after a few washes, the stains do come out.  Putting the diaper back together after washing is a breeze with the color coded snaps.


Overall Performance:  ★★★★☆  I was very impressed with this diaper!  I really love the minky fabric and the customizable inserts.  I also really loved the hidden newborn snaps, this is a fabulous idea and I cannot wait to try this out with number two (someday)!  I was a little discouraged by that one nap leak, but it did not happen a second time, it may have been my error.  I would highly recommend this diaper, provided the parent did not mind the price.

Total Stars:  22/30

Daddy’s Thoughts:  He loves this diaper because of the color (green is his favorite) and the minky being so soft!  He has long ago gotten over his fear of snaps and would always gravitate to the minky green diaper!

Itti Bitti Wet Bag


Stars:  ★★★★★

I love this wet bag!  It is made from the same soft minky fabric as the diapers, so it is just so nice to touch!  It is laminated on the inside to lock in moisture and smell.  It holds approximately 4-5 diapers so it would be great for the diaper bag on an outing, daycare, day at Grandma’s, etc.  This wet bag retails for $14.95 and is available at my affiliate, Kelly’s Closet.

Itti Bitti Cloth Wipes


Stars:  ★★★★☆

Don’t let the 4 star rating fool you…I love these wipes!  These wipes are made from a super soft and luscious velour fabric.  They are plush, soft, and absolutely to die for!  My only complaint, and hence the 4 star rating, is that they can be too soft.  You are thinking, how can a cloth wipe be too soft?  Well, these wipes are so soft and luscious that I sometimes had trouble getting poop off of my daughter’s skin.  The wipe is just so soft that I had to apply lots of elbow grease to get the poop off.  Not that I want sand paper wipes, but I have used other extremely soft wipes that were soft enough for her skin but tough enough to get the poop off.  For pee only diapers though, these wipes are dreamy on Miss A’s skin!!

These wipes retail for $9.95 for a pack of 5 of these wipes (also available at my affiliate, Kelly's Closet).  They come in amazingly adorable colors and can even be folded and used as a doubler/booster in your diaper if necessary!  These wipes can also be used as wash clothes for baby or mom!  Definitely an added bonus when you can use them for multiple uses!

  1. Entered! And thank you for another great review! Do you think the wipes would get better for poo purposes after being washed more? or do they just get softer and harder to wipe with? Just wondering.

  2. I have been using them for a while now...and they are just as soft as the day I got them. I have probably washed them 15-20 times. Maybe more. They are very soft, very plush, and wonderful for wiping a wet bum. I just found them too soft for poop. Completely my opinion though.
