SmartiPants Diaper Review & Giveaway

As my loyal readers know, I cloth diaper my daughter, G. She is now 6 months old (where did the time go!!), and our 'stash' of cloth diapers is some what diverse. However, it did not include a SmartiPants diaper. That's until recently when a Jet Black one size pocket diaper of the SmartiPants variety arrived in my mail box.

I had read a little bit about their diapers before, and was very excited to test it out on G. Before I tell you how that went, let me give you the basics.
  • These diapers fit 7-35 pounds through adjustable snaps in the waist and the rise. The snaps can overlap each other. The snaps are guaranteed for 2 years.
  • The diaper features a Leak Guard Technology to keep babies dry and moisture contained.
  • Though they are 'pocket' diapers, there is an opening at the front and the back so that the insert will agitate out in the wash.
  • Smarti Pants Diapers are made in the USA, and the brainchild of a mommy of 4.
  • One diaper will cost you $14.95, with multiple diaper packages available for a smarter deal (re: lower cost per diaper).

Onto how the diaper worked for us

I wanted to put this diaper to the test right away. I stuffed it with the the smart sleeve insert it comes with, plus a hemp prefold because G is a heavy wetter and I didn't want to be unfair. That's our tried & true night time routine for any diaper.
  • First, the diaper, even when stuffed, fit under her normal size pee-jees (as pajamas are called in our house). This is great, because with our other stuffed night time diapers, she usually has to wear a size up.
  • Second, no leaks whatsoever, not even onto the belly of her pee-jees, as she is a tummy sleeper. Perhaps this isn't a big deal to you, but my daughter sleeps 10+ hours straight at night and a no leak solution is hard to come by, especially for a diaper that doesn't make her bottom triple in size. It kept her dry and didn't bother her all night = happy baby, happy momma.
  • The insert DID come out during washing and everything got clean!
I also tried this diaper out during the day, and it was a great fit, comfy for her, and left no marks, rashes, or irritations on her chubby-hard-to-fit thighs. It contained all dirty messes, no matter the consistency. This is an awesome diaper & gets our family's serious approval.

  18. I used expensive diapers for the first 6 months, and they seemed fine. The last two batches in the larger sizes have had major problems. They split, leaving gooey silica all over my son and his bedclothes. It is a good thing he was wearing a one-piece, or else the silica would have been all over his bed. I thought I had gotten a bad batch, but the new box did the same thing. I think it is dangerous and negligent of them to have defective diapers out there. I'm using a new brand from here on out.
