So I am finally getting around to writing my Smartipants review!

Smartipants is a 2-piece diaper system. From their website: "Smartipants™ diapers feature our Leak-Guard Technology, keeping moisture contained, and your baby dry. Our diapers are made with “breathable” fibers and are free from any chemicals or irritants. Smartipants™ reusable diapers are designed to grow with your baby from newborn to toddler, babies 7lbs - 35lbs. "

Customer Service: The customer service at Smartipants is great! I haven't had a single problem that I've needed to contact them about, but I have heard terrific stories about how responsive they are. In fact, my Smartipants diaper was free. I won it through a giveaway on Twitter during our #clothdiapers chat one Monday evening (join us every week!)... shipping was super fast, especially considering that it was all FREE! How nice of them. Hopefully I will be able to host a Smartipants giveaway on my site in the future and give one of my readers the chance to win one of these terrific diapers.

Price: Smartipants are $14.95 apiece. For a terrific one-size diaper that will last from birth to potty training, this is a very modest price. I would say it's definitely a bargain, especially considering the value (which is AMAZING).

Fit: I have difficulty with my son and one size diapers. He's a VERY small and thin baby. (13 lbs 7 oz at 6 months) With Smartipants, there was not a lot of guesswork. It was pretty easy to find his size setting, and once I did - no issues! It's super cute on him too!

Absorbency: Li-bug is what we call a Super Soaker. Diapers get changed every 2 / 2.5 hours(this is probably why he stays so thin, haha!) ... Our Smartipants generally last on him for about 3 or 3.5 hours. This is TERRIFIC. When I'm taking him out to the store or somewhere, I usually slip on the Smartipants so I have less of a chance of having to change him.

What makes this diaper unique: The selling point of Smartipants is the patented "Smart Sleeve" - the pocket is open on both ends, allowing the insert to come out on its own in the wash! You know what this means for the average CD mama??! No pee-smell on your hands! You don't touch the insert! You know what it means for me? Eh... nothing, I hand wash ;p .. But it was SUPER convenient when we had an overnight at a friends house and she did my laundry while we slept. The only diapers were Prefolds and Smartipants so there was no icky urine disaster as a result of her not knowing what to do with inserts - it took care of itself!

Overall: I am extremely pleased with this diaper! It is absolutely one of my favorites and usually the first one I reach for! Great value for your money. I have recommended them to so many people and hopefully more of you will want to try them out!

And for the next 8 days, there is a terrific sale going on! 3-pack of Smartipants for $36.95! Head over to and check it out!
