Itti bitti d’lish nappies have an unbelievablysoft minky fabric outer waterproof layer, a stay dry inner of super soft suedecloth. The bamboo/organic cotton soaker pads are then snapped-in to provide complete and adjustable absorbency.
Very slim fit
Removable booster pads give you a really quick drying time considering these are natural fibres.
If the outer shell remains clean it is possible to just change the wet booster pads at change time and reuse the outer shell, rather than having to change the whole nappy. This makes the system very economical.
These nappies do NOT require a waterproof wrap over the top, so these wonderful nappies can be displayed in all their glory!
Divinely comfortable with the performance of a disposable, bitti d’lish will change the way you think about cloth nappies! Because the nappy comes apart, you can re-use the outer ’shell’ like a waterproof wrap, replacing wet booster sets with dry ones, perfect for travelling or space saving in the nappy bag - makes it a very economical option as well. Additional Booster Sets are sold seperately.
How many nappies do I need?
It depends on how often you wash and what type of nappies you want to use. Bitti D’lish nappies are very quick drying, as all of the layers come apart to wash and dry - they are also very versitile, if you have extra boosters, you can wash at night, hang the outer shells to dry in the laundry or bathroom and they should be dry in the morning. Simply snap in your extra booster sets whilst waiting for the others to dry.
- Washing daily: 6 Nappy sets and 6 booster sets
- Washing every two days: 8 Nappy sets and 8 booster sets
- Washing every three days:10 Nappy sets and 10 booster sets
This number could be reduced if you used extra booster sets in between washes - taking out the wet set of boosters and replacing it with a dry set. There is a lot of flexibility with this system, depending on what works best for you.
Available in small, medium and large.
Itti Bitti nappies are very trim and look so small that, when they arrive, you may think you’ve ordered the wrong size. But try the nappies on and you should find that you get the perfect fit. The nappies have a low rise to fit well under clothing, a slim crotch for comfort and freedom of movement and are high cut at the front to ensure a great fit for cuddly or tiny legs.
Small - fit around 3.5kg to around 7.5kg (8-16lbs). Most newborns will fit the small within a few weeks, if not from birth. Smalls should fit for around 3-9 months depending on the build of your baby.
Medium - fit approx 6kg to 12kg (13-26lbs) depending on your babies build. Slim babies may fit for longer, depending whether you are happy with the rise. Bigger newborns may fit the mediums very early on - from as young as a few weeks - especially 4kg (9lbs) plus babies, so try your mediums on to see how they fit. Sometimes however when using the medium nappies on babies below the recommended weight range, the nappy may fit around the waist, but you may get gaping around the legs, this can be an indication your baby is still a little small for the medium size.
Large - fit from approx 11kg to 17kg (24-37lbs). Again, depending on your babies build, they may fit for longer and cuddly babies are often able to fit from around 9kgs (20lbs). Sometimes when using the large nappies on babies below the recommended weight range, the nappy may fit around the waist, but you may get gaping around the legs, this can be an indication your baby is still a little small for the large size.
Itti bitti’s are low rise nappies, so if your baby is above 9kg (20lbs) and you prefer a higher rise, you may find the large a better fit.
Washing and Care
To assemble nappies with snap in boosters match the coloured snaps of the boosters up with the coloured snaps of the outer ‘shell’, fold the rectangular booster along the fold lines and slip this booster underneath the fleece topped booster. Your nappy is then ready to use.
The outer ‘shell’ can be reused if it is not soiled, with an extra set of boosters. Simply remove the wet boosters and snap in a new set. Fabrics have been prewashed at least once to remove excess dyes (bamboo three times to help get your nappies to maximum absorbency), however we recommend dark nappies be washed separately for the first few washes.
Please do not hang the bitti d’lish with sewn in boosters by the flap booster, as this will put extra stress on the seam.
