Smartipants cloth diapers - Review & Giveaway! CLOSED

Our cloth diapering adventure continues with this adorable reusable one size fits all pocket diaper from Smartipants. I had heard about Smartipants from Kristin, a fellow blogging Momma, and had them on my list of diapers to try for quite some time now. We received the diaper in Cool Blue, and it has snap closures. All of the Smartipants diapers are constructed with breathable fibers, are free from any chemicals or irritants, and are made right here in the USA.

Trying to escape from me and the camera
Smartipants was the vision of Jessica, a mommy of four, who was constantly looking for an economical, yet easy to use cloth diapering system. When she couldn't find what she was looking for - convenient, easy to care for, and comfortable diapers - she designed and made them herself!

This was the first diaper with snap closures that we have tried. In all honesty, I was a bit nervous to try them because I was afraid we wouldn't be able to get a good fit around Carina's tiny waist and chubby thighs. Well, I am happy to report that this diaper actually fits her more snugly (without leaving any red marks) than any other diaper we have! It also doesn't tend to bunch in the front like many of our other aplix diapers.

We were fortunate enough (if you can say that, lol) to experience both a pee and a poo with our Smartipants diaper. I usually double stuff our pocket diapers because Carina is quite the heavy wetter, but the single patented smart-sleeve insert does the trick every time! The unique Leak-Guard Technology keeps moisture contained, and she stays perfectly dry.

In addition to its fantastic absorbency, I also am in love with the smart-sleeve insert because you can stuff it from either end of the diaper and you do not have to remove it after baby goes potty. It agitates right out in the wash! No need to go digging and get your hands all dirty. I wish all cloth diaper makers would follow this cue!

When M does the diaper changing he grabs for our Smartipants diaper first because he loves the cute color, and the fact that the whole diaper (insert included) goes straight into the diaper pail. I think he hates getting pee (or worse) on his fingers more than I do.

Fit and closure up close
The snaps on the Smartipants diaper are unlike any I have seen yet. Not only are there multiple rows of snaps to allow for the rise to grow with baby, there are multiple overlapping snaps at the closures! This allows the diaper to accommodate wee babes (7 lbs.) all the way to 35 lb. toddlers. I am very excited to try this diaper early on with our baby on the way.

So many snaps for the perfect fit!
Smartipants diapers and accessories can be purchased online! A 3 pack of reusable diapers is only $36.95 - I cannot get over what a great deal this is. Check out the Smartipants Facebook page for news and blog posts as well!
