I’m sure by now many of you have noticed – that I am doing a ton of diaper reviews! Come join in on the fun!
The next diaper that I am reviewing is called SmartiPants. They are the smart diaper – because really, you can’t go wrong with them.
Check them out online, and on Facebook!

Although easy to spot in the dryer –the cute green trim to the insert makes it stand out a bit – These diapers tend to be a little bit more difficult to assemble.
They have a rather snug pocket, which is a blessing and a hindrance. I love the pocket, because it holds the insert in place so well – and doesn’t really allow for much bunching of the diaper… but my husband has a hard time getting his big hands inside. So as long as I stuff the diaper, we’re good.
Despite the fact that there is only one layer of snaps along the waist, the diaper seems to fit and hold really well. I haven’t had any issues, although my children are both on the average to large side, so I can’t speak for a smaller baby fitting into these. They are comfy, and more on the trim side than not.
These are super easy to wash. Simply drop it in the machine. The machine takes care of all of the work of agitating the inserts out. I like that.
Can’t get much better than this for price. A single diaper with liner included is $14.95! Affordable, but not terribly cheap. I mean, I CAN feel the difference in some of the material quality vs. my super nice expensive diapers, but I have yet to have any issues with rashes or leaks, so nice enough to keep baby’s bum happy!
Dad likes that there is only one row of snaps to work with. on the top – because the less work, the better. He does not, however, enjoy stuffing the diaper. He notices that although the leak guard is NICE – he has a hard time rinsing poop from the crevices of it.
I think this diaper is a very pracitcal diaper. I tend to think of it more as a ‘1-2 hour diaper’ just because it only comes with one small microfiber insert. It just feels too thin to hold any more than that. Other than our first week of diapering where we were not putting the diaper on Ethan correctly, we have not had any leaking issues. It’s a good diaper to have in our stash – and a perfect one to get started with if you’re looking to save a few extra bucks per diaper.
I do love how the pocket works – and I wish more diapers would have this ‘it fit’s perfectly’ idea in their diapers – however I couldn’t throw a different liner inside of it without it having an improper fit. Therefore I wish that SmartiPants would make a hemp insert or doubler as well for longer trips. Meanwhile, my other doublers will do the job
