My Smartipants cloth diaper was one of the first diapers in my stash. I bought it in December 2009 when I had only been cloth diapering for about two months. After 8 months in use, it turned out to be one of my favorites!
I’ve been curious about the “Little Smarti” Newborn Cloth Diaper since they came out. Made by Smartipants, but newborn size, all-in-one style, and Velcro closures. I was a little surprised though that a single Little Smarti retails for $17.95, vs $14.95 for a one size smart sleeve diaper. I generally expect newborn diapers to be less expensive than their one-size counterparts.
While the smart sleeve diapers come in over a dozen colors, the newborn diapers come only in “think pink”, “aqua breeze” and “bright white.” I thought the aqua was a pretty color, and also suits a boy or a girl (not that it really matters, they’re diapers after all.) I would love to see some more gender neutral color options though!
Though the Smartipants snap closures are pretty simple as far as snaps go, I love that the newborn diaper has Velcro closures. They are incredibly easy to use and the laundry tabs held tight during my initial wash.
The Little Smarti has leg and rear elastic, as well as a sewn in (all in one) microfiber soaker under the stay-dry inner.
While the one-size Smartipants diaper fits babies approximately 7-35 pounds, the Little Smarti fits 5-12 pounds, and fills that gap between birth, and when most one-size diapers start to fit.
Here is is compared to the Smartipants O/S diaper on the smallest setting:

As usual, here is my newborn model, pictured also in newborn and size 1 disposable diapers, so you can compare:
Finally, here he is in the Little Smarti:
Of course, I haven’t gotten to try the diaper on a newborn for fit and absorbency, but this diaper is the same great quality I know from my Smartipants O/S, and I expect it to perform as great as it looks. I do wish these diapers were a little less expensive, and came in a few more colors! See this on my newborn.
