Overall Comment:
Highly recommended
Itti Bitti bit hooked!

Detailed comment:

Since long standing traditions dictate it
(Though the modern cloth mummy may hate it)
I thought I would try something new
And use rhyming to write this review!

The reason I’ve chosen this form
Rather than stick with the norm
Is, as on reading these words in rhyme,
They’re remembered for a longer time.

The d’lish is the nappy I’ve chosen
To go ‘neath little one’s ‘hosen*
And listed below here is why
This is the one I would buy.

To begin with I’ll go through the fit
Which is slimmer than most and they sit
Rather low at the waist so for guys
You should opt for a bigger size.

The trim nappies that are the d’lishes
Have answered the cloth bum mums’ wishes!
At last a cloth nappy that’s right,
Under fashionable togs (which are tight!).

The inserts of trifolding bamboo
And hourglass soaker pads too
Make 8 thirsty layers! By the by
A soft suedecloth top keeps bums dry.

The colour coded snaps that help show
Where all these booster pads go,
Make these snap in ones (all in twos, to confuse)
The easiest nappies to use!

I thought they would be overloaded
When my dear little angel exploded
But the marvellous fit I’ve explained
Meant the worst pooplosions are contained!

The 'shells' are sooo snuggly feeling!
The bright colours are also appealing
The whole look of the nappies is fetching
And the fact that they stretch without stretching!

They’re affordable so I’ve bought new,
I have got some pre loved ones too
Though honestly, you hardly can tell
As these nappies last incredibly well.

Sized nappies once made me scoff
As my family aren’t very well off.
I assumed she’d outgrow them too fast
But they really have turned out to last.

Small will fit a newborn baby
And large goes to 17 kg!
For my average sized girl we have found
The medium’s fine (up to 26 pounds).

Something bad? Gosh I’ll have to dig deep
I suppose it’s the fact that to keep
A trim fitting nappy trim-fitty
The boosters must be itti-bitti.

And bamboo IS slower to dry
Even under a sunny warm sky
Though micro fibre booster is there for it
I really can’t say that I care for it.

It’s not all sunshine and smelling of roses
When you opt out of using the sposies
But those paper clad babies will wish
That their mummy’s used bitti d’lish!

*This word rhymed beautifully with chosen but I appreciate it is in another language so if confused, replace with, ‘bottom-half-covering-garments’.

Never thought I'd enjoy reading a review so much! Just got a couple pre-loved and looking forwards to giving them a go even more now! Wish I didn't have to wait couple months to grow into them :waiting:
