Not only is the itti bitti diaper soft on the outside, it's also soft on the inside. The snap down inserts are made with a bamboo viscose and organic cotton blend so they are incredibly absorbent. They are topped with a layer of polyester so that the baby feels dry. I dry all my diapers, inserts, and covers on a drying rack. If you've ever line or rack dried clothing, you know it typically ends up stiff. Natural fibers seem to be the worst at becoming stiff when line dried. However, the itti bitti soaker pads remain soft, even after laying on the drying rack.
This itti bitti bitti tutto is designed as an All in Two system, so that the shell can be reused if it's not soiled. Because this is not a wipe clean system, the cover does need to lay out to dry in between changes. If Jaxon is not soaked, I will do this, but Jaxon loves to poop in his bitti tutto so this does not happen often for us. Itti bitti has designed this diaper with internal gussets and a patented "poo fence" in the back and I can attest to the fact that it works. Speaking of poop, though, this diaper is not a lot of fun to clean poop off of because there are so many parts. I do not have a diaper sprayer, so I'm dunking and swishing in the toilet. Thankfully, the stay dry layer on the top of the soaker pads lets the poop easily slide off, but sometimes it can be tricky to take the diaper apart without getting your hands dirty. One thing I do love is that this diaper does not stain. I don't know why, but it just doesn't. We've had some nasty messes in it and if any stains remain at the end of the wash cycle, they are faint and easily sun out.

The hardest thing about this diaper, in my opinion, is not putting it together, but getting the right fit. Because it's highly customizable, those first few changes were spent trying to figure out whether or not to use the hip snaps, which snap placement fit best and how best to position the soakers. We had a few leaks in the beginning as I experimented with all of this. However, once I figured out which settings were right for Jaxon, it fit beautifully -look how great this fits him!

Another thing to love about the itti bitti bitti tutto is its trimness. All of Jaxon's pants fit well over it and it doesn't cause a huge fluffy butt like many of our diapers do. I don't mind a fluffy butt, but for those of you who have trouble getting your kids clothes to fit right over cloth diapers, the itti bitti bitti tutto is definitely the solution. Because of the soaker design, this diaper is also extremely trim between the legs.
I'm often asked what my favorite cloth diaper is. I have an extremely varied stash and have compiled it with a lot of "free with purchase" diapers (thanks, Kelly's Closet) and wins from contests. However, I realized the other day that if purchase history says favorite, then I definitely have a favorite. We have purchased more itti bittis than any other type of diaper, so I think I can finally say I've found my favorite diaper!
