Smartipants Review

When my best friend told me she was going to cloth diaper her baby, I admit that I was very intrigued -- but I also thought that it meant that it would be a lot more work on her part. I envisioned a smelly house, safety pins, exploding diapers and lots of leaks. Boy was I wrong! Now her baby is now over 4 months old, and she has made cloth diapering look like a breeze! She uses pockets for the most part and after months of admiring her cute fluffy bummed daughter, Jerry and I decided that we'd really like to give cloth diapering a try for ourselves. We like the idea of no chemicals next to Bella's skin-- and we also like the thought of saving money....and lets be honest, they are pretty darn cute too!

I really didn't know where to start-- but I came across Smartipants. Now Smartipants are fairly new in the cloth diaper world. They are a pocket one sized diaper-- and they are very very affordable!! I was able to get my first 3 pack in a sale, for only $36.95. This is just over $12 a diaper, which is considerably less than your typical pocket diaper. And to my surprise, these diapers are AWESOME. Here are the things I love most about these diapers:

*They are very well made. They fit Bella very well, and fit almost exactly like the well known Bum Genius.

*They are one sized... meaning they will fit babies newborn all the way up to toddler years.

*They are microfleece on the inside of the pocket--keeping the baby's bum dry

*The POCKET. One of a kind. You stick the insert in and when its soiled, just dump the whole diaper in the wash. No need to remove the nasty insert-- it works itself out in the washer! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this aspect of the diaper! Much like an All in One, except there is still room for more inserts if needed at naps or overnight :)

*The Price... I mentioned these were inexpensive right? :)

*Love the SNAPS! No Aplix rubbing on B's thighs and they stay on her too.

I HIGHLY recommend these pocket diapers. I only hope they come out in some cute prints soon because the pastel colors don't do this diaper justice!

Wow Mandy she's getting so big. And she's soooooo precious! You've intrigued me on the Smartipants, too. I'm tempted to give it a try.
