Ok i need some help,im looking at getting a dozen nappies (to use a voucher before end of year) and i already have heaps of tuttos,so thought about getting some of the d'lish. Is there much of a difference absorbency wise between the SIO and the AIO?.

just after some feedback on both of these nappies please.

thanks

I had the SIO with DS and found them a pain to be honest. DS is a big boy and the did not come up his back high enough and we had a lot of leaks in the groin area. I guess it depends on your childs build, but if I had my time again I would try something different. I also found the inserts got very stinky and had to strip wash them more regularly than other brands. Can't really compare them to any other itti bit tis though so I don't know how much help that is.

They are very small fit nappies, they were great for my petite girl but my larger boy was in the large by 3 months!

I'm not a fan of the d'lish style. I'd just get more Tuttos. I like their gusset and find I can get a really good fit.

As choice between AIO and SIO I'd choose snap in. They dry more quickly.

My DD recently stopped wearing her mediums at 20 months, granted she is on the small side.
I don't find them anywhere near as absorbent as my tuttos, I might still be using them on her if they were but she kept wetting through within an hour even after a strip wash. I love love love my tuttos.

I preferred SIO to AIO, I found them slightly more absorbent. They are a very low rise though.

I hate the SIO and love the AIOs for DS. I'm not a fan of the tuttos as they don't seem to fit DS's body shape.

The SIOs seem to be more absorbent because they have more layers. But I find them too bulky.

I have used all of them. Tuttos are easily the most absorbent. SIO are good, the large still fit dd at 31mths and she's not petite! The AIO i've sold as they just weren't cutting it here anymore, they would leak very quickly.

My 27 month is in the large still (he's a skinny frame) but they would need changing after 2 hours - not too absorbent, and they tend to leak regardless of how snugly fitted they are.

We have Sunshine Tots (a WAHM in QLD) and to be honest, one of those could last all day long, so good are the inserts.

I use the smalls dlish on my 3.5week old and am getting groin or bottom leaks almost nightly. I've tried doing them up higher and tighter with no sucess.

He does have lanky legs and falls asleep in his side after a feed so the gravity is helping to.

For those with lanky legs babies have you found the tutto better?

D'lish was always great on my kids....none of whom have been over the tenth percentile for weight.  They are a very slim fit.

Mine is chubby legged but at that age Tutto gave a much better fit than the others. Also it has leg gussets.

We have SIOs & Tuttos. He's got chunky thighs, on I think the 25th percentile for his adjusted age, and I always reach for the SIOs first. I love the super trim fit!! We're on the last snaps of a medium a the moment, so about to move to a large. I initially only got only Tuttos then was given an SIO to try & loved it so much we now have a set of mediums & larges as well as our Tuttos original.gif
No leaks with either Tuttos or SIOs here, but for us the Tuttos are less absorbent than the SIOs which seems to be the reverse of everyone else.


I wouldn't use either for overnight though! Overnight a proper night nappy is needed for my feeding throughout the night DS (we use bitti boos).

I have some tuttos, SIOs and AIOs.
I like the SIO best as they fit my daughter best and seem to last the longest - around 3-3.5hrs (although an AIO lasts this long as well with a mini booster snapped in). Though they are a small fit (my daughter is a couple of weeks over 6 months and 50th %ile for height & weight, the mediums are a nice snug fit on her now - we do have a couple more snaps to snap out to though so hopefully they will fit her until the advertised 12kg mark!).

I did like my tuttos a lot previously, however, the past few months they have kind of gaped a bit at the top which means we have had some leaks at the top front section of the nappy (can't do it up any tighter up the top bc it would stop blood flowing to her legs!). Don't know how to remedy this.. sad.gif

My daughter has to wear a disposable overnight (and she sometimes even out-wees this!)

ETA: The fit of the AIO and SIO seems to be the same (to my eyes anyway!). If I were to buy more I'd go with SIOs - a little more absorbent and quicker to dry.

Vanillaicecream - Hope you dont mind a suggestion, but it sounds like you need to skip a snap to get the waist fit separate to the legs on your Tuttos. So snap the legs at the right point using the first snap, then skip a snap to get the waist tighter with the second snap. At the moment we have a skipped snap on only one side with our SIOs, but previously we had one on either side.
Think of it as the first snap for the legs & the second snap for the waist original.gif

Thanks ponyoland - I'll definitely give that a go tomorrow!

I wouldn't buy too many of them if I were you - I've found the quality of Itti nappies to be declining a bit lately TBH.
I've got broken rise snaps, delaminating wetbags and crunchy PUL all in the last 6 months, on new nappies.

As PP's have said, the Tuttos are the most absorbent of all. I never found much difference in the absorbency of SIO vs AIO.
