Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry All-in-One Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

It’s been a while since I’ve had a newborn baby, and I’ve never had a newborn baby small enough to start with a newborn cloth diaper.  When Nuggles contacted me about doing a review on their newborn cloth diaper, I knew that I’d have to do something a little different.  I had to borrow a baby.

About the Tester

Small Fry is an extremely tiny little newb.  When she came home from the hospital, I ended up making a field trip to visit so that we could try a variety of newborn cloth diaper options on her and fix the leaking issue.  Small Fry is also a very heavy wetter, able to saturate a newborn prefold diaper in a single wee.  (My frie

nd somehow manages to produce freakishly heavy wetters.  I’m not sure how something so tiny can wet so much in one go.)  While her bladder makes Small Fry less of a perfect tiny tester, her wee size makes her perfect for testing the fit of a newborn cloth diaper.

About Nuggles

Nuggles is a Canadian cloth diaper company with original designs from a Canadian mom.  Her product is ethically made in China by a reputable manufacturing facility, using 100% certified OEKO materials.  The products are tested in Canada.

About the Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry AIO Newborn Cloth Diaper

The Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry All-in-One Newborn Cloth diaper is an all-in-one diaper with a sewn in soaker.  There are no flaps to adjust, tuck, or line up.  This means that there’s no stress for the sleep-deprived mom; the Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry goes on just as easy as a disposable.  It is a snap closure diaper with a color-coded snap down umbilical notch.  There are also functional double gussets.

What’s Good About the Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry

It is truly itty bitty.  Like most newborn diapers, it’s designed to fit littles.  The Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry says that it fits babies from 5-15 pounds.  I have no doubt that it will absolutely fit babies in the five pound range; Small Fry was certainly that small, and she had little chicken legs to boot.  It fit Small Fry beautifully, and it managed to contain her massive weekly EBF baby poosplosion without an issue.

What’s Not?

Small Fry is such a heavy wetter that the Nuggles Bittee could not keep up with her output.  However, when I tested the diaper (by pouring water on the AIO and pressing it to simulate the pressure of baby’s weight), the unboosted diaper was able to hold 167 mL of water… which is just under 3/4 of a cup.  With the added bamboo charcoal booster, it was able to hold another 70mL.  Combined, the Nuggles Bittee Stay Dry and booster can hold about a cup of water.  What that tells me is that the Nuggles Bittee diaper will be amazing for a reasonably wetting newborn… but it’s insufficient for an extreme heavy wetter.

Also, because the Nuggles Bittee AIO doesn’t have any flaps to adjust, it means that the diaper take a long time to dry.

In a Nutshell?

At $15 per diaper, the Nuggles Bittee AIO is a reasonably priced newborn cloth diaper.  It’s functional and effective, plus pretty darned cute.  I’d say it’s a worthwhile addition to any newborn cloth diaper package.

    I haven’t used Nuggles newborn AIO’s yet but am a fan of their prefolds and fitteds so come July I’m going to be a happy tester of the newborn size as well. Love their price point and everything has double gussets! Heavy wetters isn’t a problem so much as super-poopers in this house, and her products always managed to contain our explosions! Can’t wait!

  4. Very interesting, I would like to try them out on our little one. Love the cute pattern and colors. Like the sewn in soaker…great ideal!

  5. That is a super cute diaper! (And also, you need to send your friend my way! My kids start out tiny and spend their entire cloth-diapering lives peeing through everything I put on them! It sounds like we make similar babies) 😉

  7. Oh my goodness! That is so adorable! It makes me want a new newbie!

    That is an adorable print! I wonder if they make it in a larger version?

  9. I’ve never tried Nuggles before. The rainbow chevron print is cute!

  10. Rachel Z says:

    So cute! I need #2 so I can justify buying newborn diapers! (DD is only 5 months – haha!)

  11. Chelsea Rutledge says:

    They are super cute! And I love that they have a booster that will fit in a newborn size. The only thing I wish they had was a notch or snap down for the umbilical chord!

  12. Sounds like a great diaper, I have never heard of them before! I love the rainbow chevron print, so cute!
