Smartipants Cloth Diaper Video Review


I was really excited to try Smartipants diapers for a number of reasons.  First, they have a very attractive price point at 14.95 a diaper.  Second, they have a “smart sleeve” which is basically a pocket open at both ends.  This allows the insert to agitate out during the wash.  Third, it is a one size pocket diaper with snaps.  I have yet to find a negative thing to say about this diaper.  I have yet to have any leaks, the insert has always washed out for me, and the fit has been great on my son.  The fact that it is 3.00 less than the most popular one size pocket diaper is even better!  The diapers are also made in the US!  Visit their website for more details and to order your own Smartipants!

***Smartipants suggests squishing the insert in of possible if you are not comfortable with the microfiber showing***


I am updating my older reviews to include the Durability rating.  At the time of  this review I had not begun using this system, but still feel it is important to update it.

Where to buy:
Durability ✰✰✰✰✰ I am actually surprised at how long ago I reviewed this diaper.  Why?  Because my Smartipants still looks brand new.  I still suggest these diapers to people looking for an economical and easy to use cloth diaper.  The PUL has not leaked, the lining is still looking brand new, and there is no sign of wear around the snaps.  The insert is still abosprbent and still agitates out at each wash.  It looks the same as the day I got it, and I use this diaper very regularly in my stash.  Definitely standing the test of time.

    I used Smartipants for my daughter (only use at night now due to her awesome potty training), and absolutely loved them! They were so much more user friendly than the pre-folds I was using previously, my hands don’t get all yucky when wash time comes because the inserts come out on their own, and they are an amazingly great price compared to diapers of similar quality. I would definitely suggest Smartipants to any new mama… or dada for that matter!

    *Love* my Smartipants! I bought them just before my son was born in 2009 and have been using them since. They started fitting at about 9-ish lbs, though recently I saw a youtube video and I think I might have been able to fit it on him earlier, and they have been wonderful since! He’s 22lbs now and still on the middle rise setting so he has quite a bit of room left. These diapers are definitely my leak proof diapers as of right now, I find myself trying to ‘save’ them for when we are going places because I know if I have to wait a little longer between changes they won’t leak. Even after over a year of use I can’t find any obvious wear to them and I absolutely love throwing them in the wash without unstuffing. Oh and stuff is super easy. I do have thin hands but I think most people could do it, I just reach in and pull the insert through and make sure that it isn’t twisted or bunched. We’re expecting another little one and I’m definitely planning on adding more of these to our stash.

    I love the Smartipants, we had Fuzi Bunz and Thursties also but the Fuzi Bunz leaked and their snaps kept falling off: the thursties where as easy but the velcro or hook and loop material got to be unusable, replaced all my Fuzi Bunz with SmartiPants and even after two years of hard use, there are no problems with them, still look new, snaps are still firm and firmly attached….
    P.S. the amazon link on this review is for Fuzi Bunz!! The oly place I can find that sells them is:

    Hi! I realize this review is a little old but was wondering if you know if this diaper is good for a heavy wetter? I know you said no leaks but with a heavy wetter I worry it could be a little different! Thanks 🙂 I’m gonna have to look into these!
