>Smartipants is the only company that did not respond to my request to use their images in my “wish list” post.
Still, I was intrigued by the claim that the insert would agitate out in the wash, and it was also the least expensive one size diaper I’ve seen so far.
It’s also the first one I’ve seen that doesn’t come with a doubler.
It has only a single row of snaps, and the insert agitates out because it has more of a “patch” than a pocket. Annoying to stuff for sure.
It was fine, but nothing to write home about. Even the ability to wash without removing the insert doesn’t entice me. If they were all you had, you could just change them & wash them. No tabs to fold over & no insert to pull out. For me, I don’t care. I usually grab the insert with the wipe, then lay it inside the diaper & fold it up. I have to use hand sanitizer after changing a diaper anyway, so who cares.
They’re also only about $3 cheaper than the Bumgenius, but appear to be much cheaper. Don’t forget that they don’t come with a doubler either.
I am realizing how economical the BG 3.0s really are, I just wish they came in more colors and some prints too!
Edit August 2010: This has been in our regular rotation for 8 months and is a favorite. It has held up well, is easy to use and doesn’t leak. It looked basic initially but looks can be deceiving!
