    Default Is it normal to feel this unco?!

    I tried out our new Itti Bittis today, a Tutto and D'Lish SIOs.

    At first I felt pretty overwhelmed by all the different layers, so yesterday I watched some YouTube videos and felt ready to tackle it today. But I feel so unco with it all! I suppose if I consider the bulk of all the layers compared to a tiny disposable it makes sense, but I can't help wondering if I'm not doing it right.

    There seems to be SO much bulk in the middld of the nappy that a leak seems inevitable. Does this sound right?

    How many of the darn soakers am I meant to use anyway?!

    I have only tried the Tutto on my 2 year old, I'm yet to try it on the small setting!

    The d'lish seemed to work well enough, I just felt like I was getting it all wrong. I wish I had more, because now they're all in the wash again and I feel like I need to practise!

    I'm in the same boat, especially with the tutto, that thing could soak up half a bath by the looks of it. I have ine each of these ittis, and I use all the pads in the delish, and all but one (I removed the smallest pad) in the tutto on my 9 week old. I have no idea if its too much, but no leaks so that's the main thing.

    I have a medium dlish SIO, and the tutto fitted to its smallest size.

    It seems excessive doesn't it?! I'm wondering how many soakers are actually necessary? But as you say, maybe I shouldn't worry as long as it works...
