Smartipants is a one-size sleeve style cloth diaper. Smartipants‘ motto is “smarter than the average diaper,” and I have to agree.

As a company Smartipants is committed to making cloth diapering not only easy, but affordable. Our mission is to provide smart parents with smart solutions. We are dedicated to being 100% green, environmentally friendly, economical, and determined to keep our diapers proudly made by mothers in the United States of America! -Smartipants

I love products that are made right here in the USA, so it makes Smartipants a smart choice for my family. I love the idea of mothers being able to make a living from home while being able to stay home with their children. Smartipants is making this happen for many women.

SmartiPants Sleeve Diaper

Smartipants are a simple diapering solution. The diaper consists of a waterproof outer shell with a sewn-in stay-dry sleeve. You simply stuff the sleeve with the provided Polyester-Nylon insert. The best part about this diapering system is the ease of washing. With a typical pocket diaper, you must remove the soiled insert before placing the diaper in the wash. With Smartipants sleeve-style diaper the insert is designed to agitate out of the diaper in the washing machine. This means you don’t have to do anything. Just place the diaper in the wash, and the washing machine does the work. That is my kind of diaper!

So how did they work?

We loved this diaper. It was very easy to stuff and fit my daughter perfectly. One big difference in the Smartipants diaper and many other pocket diaper systems is the special leak guard technology. Smartipants has an isolated insert lining. So what is an isolated insert lining? Basically, the diaper sleeve or pocket is isolated to the center of the diaper. It does not extend completely to the edge. Why does this matter? It helps prevent leaking. Many of you have probably experienced the fleece pocket leak. That would be the leak from the fleece of the pocket diaper extending out of the diaper and making the cover wet. With Smartipants this is not an issue. Since the sleeve only extends through the center of the diaper, there is no “fleece leak.”

Super Soaker Tested

This diaper was great not only for daytime use but also night times and naps. When I used this diaper overnight or for naps, I simply double stuffed (or triple stuffed) the pocket and was good to go. When it was time to wash it couldn’t have been more simple. I just dumped all the soiled diapers in the wash, and nothing else was needed. Just like they say the inserts agitated out in the washing machine. Everything came out of the wash smelling fresh and clean.

If you are looking for a simple, inexpensive, and high-quality diaper, you should definitely give Smartipants a shot. It really can’t get any easier than this.
