I broke down and ordered a 3-pack of Smartipants. I purchased these with my money, they were not sent to me to review for free. Alas, I wish they were- but they weren't! If I didn't like them I wouldn't spend my precious time writing a post about them. I am trying to win a free three pack in their monthly photo contest, but that is completely unrelated to this post. I bought the boy 3-pack-call it wishful thinking-but I would LOVE the girl 3 pack for E! She is now going through the night in cloth-no more sposies here at all! Woot Woot! I needed some more dipes because I currently have a bunch out of rotation awaiting new velcro. Smartipants have been getting lots of buzz in the cloth diaper world and they are very reasonably priced ( 3 for $36.95) so I figured I would give them a go.
Smartipants claim to be smarter than your average cloth diaper and I do have to admit they boast a clever design. Here are just some of the features that make Smartipants a wise cloth diapering option.
Now that Eliza will lie still to get her diaper changed snaps are definitely the way to go. It is a pleasure not having to unvelcro all my cloth diapers after a wash. The diaper has lots of snap to help you get a perfect fit. The snaps are guaranteed for two years
Patented Smart Sleeve
One feature that is drawing lots of mom's to this diaper is the Smart Sleeve. You do NOT have to remove the insert prior to washing. It comes out every time.This isn't something that bothers me too much, but it can be pretty gross if you are changing a heavily soiled dipe. The Smart Sleeves has worked well so far and the inserts have come out in each wash. You can also order a 10-pack of Smart Sleeves for $20 so you can double up at nap time or at night.
Leak Guard Technology
Smartipants have an isolated insert lining that prevents leakage. I haven't had any leaks yet and that makes me one happy momma! The outer cover is leak proof which helps to make sure your little one stays dry.
I think these diapers are an excellent choice for moms who want a smartly priced one size diaper. They are available in seven different colors and fit babies from 7lbs-35lbs; so basically from birth to potty. I must admit I was surprised at how well this diaper worked for the price. Shame on me, I was expecting leaks. Fortunately, this is one time when being wrong is a PLUS.
My one gripe.
I am not a huge fan of pastel colors. I would love brighter bolder colors and/or pattern options with this dipe. I hope to see some in the future.
If you are are a cloth diapering momma looking to expand your stash or are just getting started with cloth make sure to check out Smartipants!
