Initially, I didn’t think it was anything to really write home about.
However, the more I used it, the more it became a favorite. It has been used nearly daily for the 8 months I’ve had it.
I just took these pictures last week, so this is what it looks like after 8 months of wear & tear!
The Smartipants diaper has a “smart sleeve” that the insert slides into. Much like a pocket diaper, it has a waterproof outer and soft fabric against baby’s skin.
Each diaper comes with a smart sleeve microfiber insert.
Here are the two things that really make Smartipants stand out to me. First, the insert agitates out in the wash. It really does! With my other pocket diapers, I use the wipe to yank the insert out before I throw it in the pail, so I don’t have to touch it later. The smart sleeve insert comes out by itself, so just throw wet ones in your pail as is!
Second, each diaper and smart sleeve insert costs only $14.95! They’re also available in 3-packs, 12-packs and 24-packs with discounted prices. 24 diapers cost $279.95 or about $11.66 per diaper! That’s enough to cloth diaper full time, washing every other day, with a few to spare.
More important than price (to me) is the fact that they do not leak, and our Smartipants has held up wonderfully! 8 months of mostly daily use and zero problems.
Smartipants have snap closures, with just two snaps on each wing, which is easier for me to do than three! They are also one-size by way of a snap down rise. All photos of my son in this post are on the medium setting where he is about 18 or so pounds.

They also introduced their first limited edition diaper color, chocolate. A new color will be available for a limited time each month, and the color will be chosen by Smartipants users!
