Hi All,

We are expecting baby #1 in a couple of months and I have started to buy a few MCNs to start my stash.

I have a voucher for Itti Bitti, and am curious about Itti Bitti Tuttos. They look so lovely, but I have read a few bad reviews which scared me.

Would love to hear what people's experiences have been.

Thanks in advance!!

I love them, haven't had issues with them.

I only started using the Tutto when DS#3 was 2 months (4 months now), so I don't know how they would go on a newborn. We used SIO Small D'lish for the first few months.

My 2 1/2 year old also wears the Tutto, no problems there either.

Personally, I hate getting poo out of them, the flaps & elastic etc just make it difficult for me - regardless of the liner I used.

Having said that, they tend to a great fitting nappy on Dd - so I do use them, just only if I'm not 'expecting' a poo lol.

Love them!
They are awesome for going out, last for ages before I need to change them. They snap apart when you wash them so they dry fairly quick, even in winter.

But, not for everything. DD is a tummy sleeper and they leak out the front if she sleeps in it. The other problem is that they take a while to get used to. I'm fine with using them but DH gets confused by them and I'd never expect daycare to get them right.

That said, they came out when DD was 8, 9 months old? so haven't tried them on a newborn.

I'd recommend getting a bunch of them, but also trying some other types.

Another one with the Tutto love! They did look crazy bulky when bubby was a newborn, but then we used Bambooties (got a heap on sale) when he was small and he went into Tuttos when he was about three months old, and we've been using them since (he's 10.5 months now). I use the Bambooty flushable liners and his poo doesn't stick. A Little Squirt was indispensable in the days of milk poos!

I think we have had a poo leak once in all the time we have used them. Have read that they don't fit some babies well, but I haven't had any issues.

another love them!

Started using them on DS quite young, maybe 6 or 8 wks and have fitted perfectly the whole time and never a leak!

I'm a little meh on them. They're not my favourite but they're also not my least favourite.

We had a lot of leaks early with them, but we're fine now the nappies have been broken in a bit.

I prefer both the booster configuration and the look of the Bitti all-in-one or snap-in-ones - too bad they are sized (and the sizes aren't that generous - DD is a big girl but she grew out of the small by 2 months and is almost out of the medium at 7.5 months).

Depends on the amount of your voucher, but it's baby expo time, and at last year's expo they had a package where you could get one tutto, one all-in-one and one snap-in-one plus a wipe, and it worked out much cheaper. Maybe you could look at this package and see which of the bitti styles work for you?

I got a $200 gift voucher for $100 from Itti bitti the other day and ordered the six pack of tuttos, so I hope they are good OP!

I haven't tried them yet, I have BBH magicallls and CT's so I'm used to using OSFM nappies, fingers crossed they're as good as they say!

Thanks everyone!

Dabri - unfortunately the PBC expo is some way off in Melbourne, but the baby&toddler show is on soon...so might check out if they have any MCN stalls.

Le-a - I'm like you, I got a $200 gift voucher for $100 (festival of fluff?!) and was also considering the six pack of tuttos. Hope you find they work well for you!!

Hey Hopefulbaby, just FYI, I made up the extra 5$ of the voucher with samples of rockin green laundry detergent, and they chucked in a couple extra! Bonus!

All the best on your MCN adventure!

Hi HopefulBaby

I have a big pile of tutto's and a big pile of d'lishes. I prefer the d'lish now but DH prefers the tutto's. The reason I prefer the d'lishes is I think the fit is slightly better.  The big plus of the tutto is they are OSFM so they grow with your baby and save you $.

I find they are very good in terms of drying and once you get used to how to put them together they're very easy.

I went through a phase of having terrible leaks first thing in the morning after DD's first feed (she was about 5 months old at the time and having 6 feeds but sleeping through the night). In the end I put her in a night nappy for the first 2 hours of the day. Since then though I've had no leaks no matter how much she exploded on huge solid poos.

I can't remember how much the tutto pack is but get some wipes as well, they are lovely. Oh or some RNG. I've just finished my first pack and I've been using it every 2 days for the last 9 months.

Have fun with your voucher!!!

Another Tutto lover here.

I've been using them on my twin DDs (11.5 months) and DS3 for around 7 months without a problem. They fit well and look gorgeous. Honestly not a single complaint here.

The AIOs are my favourites though. With 3 in nappies (almost 2 now, hooray!), anything that will save me a little time is welcome here.

I'd say 85% of my large stash is Itti Bitti, so I'm very happy with them.

And a big boo to those who managed to nab the vouchers during the Festival of Fluff- I was never online at the right time! Oh poor me..... I did manage to score a share the love freebie though, which I'm currently stalking my postie for wink.gif

They are my second favourite behind bumgenius 4.0s (although I've only tried maybe two other types of Nappies). I do struggle with them however when DD is between sizings - they start leaking which drives me nuts, but otherwise they are fine.

Thanks for all the responses! Darlings Downunder is holding a workshop in Melbourne this weekend, and are bringing some Tuttos along...so planning to check them out in real life. Though I must admit I am leaning towards spending my Itti Bitti voucher on them original.gif

#15 Cranky Kitten

Posted 12 April 2012 - 10:54 PM

I got a 6 pack of them plus wetbag and 6 wipes on sale - I use them as my going out nappies because they don't take up as much space in the bag as the BBH magicalls. Plus with the snap in soakers, if the cover hasn't been wet you can just snap in a spare soaker set and re-use. Easy-peasy.

The only thing I've found is they're maybe a bit on the itti bitti side - that or my DS is a booffa-butt. He's only 5 months but is already on the largest length setting and going through the width settings at a rate of knots.

Cranky - I think it's just your little one isn't so little, giant baby that he is.
After seeing them on cranky's little one I do LAN on getting at least a six pack. With number 1 I used dlish and loved them.

#17 Choufleur

Posted 13 April 2012 - 02:00 PM

I don't find them small, DD is 9.5 months now and on the equivalent snaps on the tutto as she is in the AIO's, a medium pretty tightly done up.  I think it just depends on the shape of your baby.

Having said that there are people in my DIG who have had problems with boys with huge legs - but they don't seem to fit into any MCN's!

ps. my free fluffy mail arrived today  ddance.gif

Yippee fluffy mail!

Just popping back in to say that I'm a bit 'meh' about the tuttos. My boy is a rather average sized fifteen month old, and the tutto seems VERY tight around his thighs. He is by no means fat, only barely chubby. I have also had a couple of occasions where he has 'breached' the poo fence. I think this is because they are so trim against his bum that the poo has nowhere to sit and has to come out the legs. Ewwww.

But! They look so cute and are definatley the best fit for under clothes! I'm persevering with them because I really want to like them!

I REALLY want to love them but I have struggled through the last 9 months with so many problems that now I'm thinking of getting rid of them.  Here are my pros and cons:

Pros
- Economical: If your bub is not a really heavy wetter you can reuse the shell and just put new inserts in.
- Trim fit
- Gorgeous colours, very addictive!
- The 'poo fence' is brilliant, I've never had a poo leak.

Cons
- For my bub, once she got to about 9 months I wasn't able to reuse the shells any longer, she was wetting through them easily
- The fit is not perfect all the time, she goes through periods where I can't get a good fit and we have to use something else
- Unless the fit is perfect, she leaks EVERY TIME.
- Despite them saying they should fit from newborn, they didn't fit my bub until she was around 6 kilos.
- I don't see how this could possibly fit a child up to 20kg as the website claims.  My girl is only around 12 kilos and is already on the large snaps, even though she's on the small side and fairly petite.

Now that my girl is 14 months I've finally given up on them for the time being.  We have gone back to prefolds with Thirsties covers and I LOVE them.
