Fluffy Friday: Smarti Pants

I didn’t have any questions come my way this week… but I’ve come up with a few for you.  I’d love to hear your opinions on the following:

  • I can’t seem to get a good fit around the legs on Sophia’s bumGenius OS diapers. I recently moved to the largest setting. Do you think this is the reason?
  • What does rise really have to do with a diaper?  Does it really matter where a diaper sits on a child?

Leave your answer in a comment to share the info with us all!


Have you heard of this cloth diapering brand yet? I’ll admit… I was totally in the dark until they popped up on another blog that I read.  Since you know I love to try all different types of diapers, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a Smarti Pants!

The first thing that you’ll notice, no doubt, about this diaper is the cute name, right? 

I love the endearing name and it just looks so darn cute on the tag on the back of the diaper. With a name like Smarti Pants, this diaper will stick in your mind, but not just for the name. 

It has literally taken it’s place in a very regular rotation in our stash. There are diapers that are in our stash and then there are diapers that are used regularly, in our stash.

A Smarti Pants diaper is a One Size Pocket Diaper that offers the sleeve design. What does this mean for you? No touching yucky inserts! They agitate themselves out in the wash. 

The One Size design is similar to most, in that you snap down the rise setting. Sophia is on the largest setting, completely unsnapped, and it still fits her really well. I actually love the way this diaper fits on her. It’s super trim and you can’t even see the “fluffi-ness” under her clothes. 

The diaper comes with one very trim microfiber insert. This is the only drawback of this diaper for me. If I use only the insert that comes with it, she can only wear it for about an hour. I remedy this by adding a very thing Joey Bunz hemp insert and she can go a good 3 hours, with it still being pretty trim. {I pretty much use a hemp doubler in every one of her pocket diapers now… along with a microfiber on top.}

A couple of differences in Smarti Pants diapers that you might notice are: the fact that they only have 1 row of snaps. I wasn’t impressed with this design at first… I was worried about how the legs would fit if I couldn’t adjust the tightness. Surprisingly, the design of this diaper is great {maybe it’s just for Sophia’s size, but from other reviews I’ve read… parents are loving this diaper}. 

I love that it only has 1 row of snaps… less work for me! You’ll also notice that with the sleeve design, it might be easy for the microfiber to touch your baby’s skin. Just make sure it’s tucked away nicely so it doesn’t dry your baby’s bum. 

The last thing you’ll notice? The price! At $14.95, this One Size diaper are definitely giving the bigger guys a run for their money. You don’t get 2 MF inserts like you do with the other guys, but I never use 2 MF’s. I always use the 1 and a hemp, so this isn’t a dealbreaker for me at all, but the $3-$5 savings is!

Also Smarti Pants is proud to say their diapers are made in the USA!

BUY IT:  You can purchase a single diaper, on the Smarti Pants website, for $14.95.  As you buy more diapers, the prices get cheaper. Smarti Pants also offer a Newborn option, Diaper Covers, and Wet Bags.

I've wondered about the rise on diapers, too. In disposables, it makes a HUGE difference. We always moved my son up a size when he started pooping up the back. But my daughter has been all the way unsnapped in her RaRz since she was a little over 2 months old (she's 4 1/2 months now), and we haven't had any issues with them yet. Thank goodness. I love my RaRz. :)

Smarti Pants make up the majority of my stash and I love them! They fit great and I love that the insert comes out in the wash. My favorite color is the brown :)

I've yet to try one of these, but have a friend with some and she is really happy with them! I think the Leak Guard looks like a great idea. ngiraldi at gmail dot com

I think I would love this diaper because my DD is a heavy wetter and I would not have to touch the soaked insert.
