The long awaited...ittybittybums review!

***CLosed***

I have done tons of market research studies; I was even so lucky as to review J&J’s bedtime bath line before it came out on the market. I love the way that stuff smells! So I am not new to the idea of using something and telling people what I like and what I don’t like about it.  I have done studies about disposable pull-ups as well. I will say keeping 2 weeks worth of pull-ups to return to a lab later, was a lot gross; I feel for the person who had to open those bags!

So here I am, running full force into the review blogging world.  Why did I start? Well I started because I love stuff. I love new stuff, and I love stuff that is functional and does it’s job well.  Even more then loving stuff, I love FREE stuff!  I dig WAHM (work at home mom) stuff a lot. I have a ton of respect for the women who work hard so they can keep their families afloat physically and financially. So during my journey into the review world, I am going to give a little somethin’ somethin’ along the way to the people who make it all worth while!




I choose ittybittybums AI2 diaper.  When I decided I wanted to start cloth diapering, I had nothing. My friend had been building up her fluffy stash and had diapers in the right size to fit my baby moose Ansel, so she lent them to me. In the mix was a brand spanking new just prepped ittybittybums diaper, some pre-folds and a few covers and other various AIO diapers.  I found every single diaper useful and fun (yes I said cloth diapering is fun) but time and time again, I found myself washing so that I could get back to that beautiful forest green ittybittybums diaper. So I decided I MUST review it.


I love how trim it is, it’s the closest fit I’ve used so far. It fits Ansel very much like a disposable!  Ansel is a moose and one of the most peein’est babies I’ve ever met, with that said we have yet to have any leaks! I put this diaper on him for his afternoon nap, which is usually his wettest wake, and his clothes were bone dry! I have had trouble with disposables leaking out during his afternoon nap, so this was spankin’. It has super soft lining and the insert is squishy soft! NO RED MARKS were to be found ever!



I love the hook and loop closure, I haven’t found a love for snaps just yet, Ansel is so wiggly this makes it easier for me to get changes done fast.  But never fear for those of you who do heart snaps, she has those too!

I have taken the cover and slapped a tri-folded pre-fold diaper in there and it’s lovely just the same. Stefanie also makes covers!


Ittybittybums has tons of cute patterns and she is VERY reasonably priced. 12 diaper collection for $126 and you get a 13th diaper for free when you buy 12! That works out to about $9.70 per diaper! These are all sized diapers, the small is small, I’ve seen it and oh goodness I wish I had a little one to put it on!



Pros-
Trim fit
Super absorbent
Fantastical price
Amazingly cute prints
13th diaper is ALWAYS free
Stefanie is really personable and responds quickly to questions
Multiple closure choices


Cons-
Only comes with one liner (additional are available for purchase)
 I could do with two laundry tabs, one on each side. The laundry tab is in the middle of the back and Ansel had a near blow out that got the laundry tab messy.
Too many cute prints to choose from, one could go broke easily

My biggest hint it was a spank-tastic diaper was when I kept washing it and reaching for it first! I definitely am going to get a whole collection or four!

So here is the deal. Stefanie at ittybittybums has graciously agreed to give one lucky person a solid diaper in their size of choice!  

Here is how it's going to work.
