Red Barn Nifty Nappy Bitty Bums: Review and Giveaway

I wasn't too sure, at first, about fitted diapers. It's a good idea, but I wasn't sure how practical it would be for me. But I took the plunge and bout my first fitted diaper-a Nifty Nappy Bitty Bums Fitted diaper.

Nifty Nappy  was started by work at home mom, Vilate. However, Vilate stopped producing diapers for retail. Jeni of Red Barn Cloth Diapers has signed on to make and sell NN and working on Nifty Nappy products!

I also purchased a fitted diaper from Jeni. It's adorable! Compared to the Nifty Nappy Bitty Bums, it's a higher rise, so while GEM has grown out of his NN BB, his Red Barn NN BB still fits!

My little baby is a super soaker, always has been! When he would overflow the disposable newborn diapers in two hours, my Red Barn NN would be soaked, but un-leaky. Is that even a word?? LOL


The outside is a super soft--velour in the Later Gator print, but the inside is her characteristic red fleece. Sandwiched between the two is layer of hemp fleece. Also, a lay-in insert made of hemp fleece on one side and bamboo velour on the other side. It's made to be folded in half, so you get an extra four layers. The snaps are enough to get a tight fit on the smallest of babies!

We used it before GEM's umbilical cord fell off, and the rise sits just below it. Because it is a fitted diaper, it needs to be paired with a cover. I used some covers I had, but Red Barn also makes and sells Red Barn Nifty Nappy Woolies. I'm sure that would make the perfect combination!

I do like this diaper, it worked very well for us, but I just couldn't find the fitted love. It's nothing against this diaper, at all!

Jen is letting me hold a giveaway for a Bitty Bums fitted diaper. Go check out her Facebook page to stay up to date, and also her website to see what she's been up to! Then, come back and fill out this easy form for a chance to win!
