Smartipants Review & Giveaway!!!.....CLOSED



Smartipants are the world's smartest one size fits all reusable (cloth) diaper. I'm really excited to be doing this review and giveaway. I've used other pocket diapers, but there are several features about this diaper that are unique. The first thing I noticed was the smart sleeve....the pocket is open at both ends. The open design of the pocket allows the insert to come out on its own in the wash. I LOVE that the entire inside is lined in suede cloth, it really contributes to how easy this diaper is to stuff. The pocket is very wide, even my husbands hand fits easily inside. Another benefit of the open pocket is that it is easy to smooth out the insert to make sure it is evenly distributed. The pocket is definitely large enough to accommodate both inserts for extra absorbency overnight.

It is a one size diaper that fits babies from approximately 7 lbs to 35 lbs. The size is easily adjusted using the three rows of rise snaps on the front of the diaper. The diaper has snap closures which I definitely prefer. I have found that snaps hold up much better than velcro over time and are much harder for Melanie to undo by herself. Melanie turned 2 last month. She is the kind of toddler who really enjoys taking off her messy diaper & making as big a mess as possible around the house....Smartipants snaps kept her from getting her diaper off!!! I LOVE this diaper!!! She has tested it during the day, at nap time & overnight without any leaks. The fit is fantastic! Smartipants come in Bright White and 6 adorable pastel colors. The one we tested on Melanie is Think Pink.

A single one size diaper comes with two micro terry inserts & retails on their website for $14.95. I'm really impressed with how inexpensive this diaper is.....one of the things that has kept me from buying very many pocket diapers is the price. Many other pocket diapers retail for considerably more and most of them do not come with any inserts. Smartipants also has a GREAT Smart Start 3 pack that comes with 3 reusable diapers and 3 smart sleeve inserts for only $36.95. That is just over $12 each, I've paid more than that for fitted diapers that require a separate waterproof cover!

Smartipants has also given me one Smartipants Reusable diaper in Mellow Yellow with 2 Smart Sleeve inserts to give away to one of you!!! This giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only.

I like the snap closures. My daughter's baby belly sometimes rubs on the velcro (on other diapers)causing irritation, so the snaps will solve that problem!

I like that they don't look big and bulky and that they are one-size-fits-all. With two in diapers it would be great to have just one diaper that fits them both.

MamaLis said...

Ok so I am so mad I never knew about these diapers before. Where have I been?!?! :) The smart sleeve that will let the insert come out in the wash is genius! I could have used this just the other day when my hands became icky getting an insert out of another brand. My husband will also like this feature. I too favor snaps in place of velcro and I am sprised at the great price. I am following you both on twitter as well.

I'll be completely honest and say I don't know if I would like them. I've only used prefolds with pins and plastic elastic pants. I'd have to try them before deciding if I would like them. I'd love to try them as they look really nice but I wouldn't buy them without giving them a try first.

WOOT~! I am try to have another little bub and would love to win. I sold all my stash years ago.

I think the gusset is the best feature I see b/c I did have some dipes that leaked when I used them years ago. It def. looks like things improved even over the past two to three years.

Great giveaway!

Tough decision! I think my fave feature is also the leg gusset--you usually only find those on covers so to have them on pockets is a bonus! I also like that they have the sleeve technology--no more icky touches!
