There’s a picture of my real model next to my previous model. 🙂 You have probably seen my reviews of newborn diapers that I did without a baby while I was expecting my son (and I think maybe even a few before!) If you’re ever looking for one, don’t forget about my review archive.

Congratulations Carrie, I’m sending you an email so you can claim your prize!
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:
Here is the newborn diaper measured folded and stretched:
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.

The covers are available with Aplix closures, while the one-size diapers are not (newborn diapers are).
The cover has a wipeable inner, so it can be reused for multiple diaper changes.
The diaper cover has 5 rise settings. That combined with the waist snap adjustment and overlapping tabs, gives you a lot of options to find just the right fit.
That said, the cover is quite large overall, considerably larger than the smart sleeve diaper.
I do not think this cover would fit newborns or small babies. The smallest setting seems similar to the medium setting on one-size diapers. For simplicity, I’m labeling the size settings 1/smallest through 5/largest.
Here is the smallest setting (first snap) folded and stretched:
Setting five/largest setting/fully unsnapped:
While the cover can be used with inserts, it seems to be sized to better fit over bulkier systems like fitted diapers.
Here is my 21ish pound son in the Smartipants cover, smallest setting (waist and rise) with a Flip stay dry insert:
It also fit over my fluffiest fitted, my Heartland Dreams.
If you are looking for a highly adjustable cover, that will fit your larger baby for a long time, this is it!
