I have always been a fan of anything that makes my to-do list easier. So, when I decided to use cloth on the foster children that graced our home, it was a no-brainer to search for the easiest ones to use.
I looked at everything and had so many questions (which were always answered by the Bestie and her blog and another cloth diapering friend of mine) about the different kinds of diapers there were, how to use them, what is best for the babies, which ones will be best for any size/age baby that we would get, which ones would last the longest, and which would be the EASIEST on myself.
So, my decision was to try a few of each kind.
I have mostly different brands of pockets but there have been two kinds of all-in-one’s that have stayed in the stash until a couple of weeks ago when I was sent the Smart One 3.0 (free for review in color Spicy Tuna & snap closure) made by Smart Bottoms.
The Smart One 3.0 is an all-in-one diaper that is made of organic cotton and is one size that will fit babies around 8-35 lbs. Seemed like the ideal addition while I am on my search for my perfect stash.
- 100% Organic Cotton inner provides a trimmer, more absorbent diaper.
- Attached insert can be folded to customize where your child needs the most absorbency, a total of 10 layers!
- Design allows for quick dry-time. Most machines will dry in one cycle on warm.
- Now one size! Four rise settings allow for a perfect fit from 8lbs-35lbs.
- Wider elastic around the legs decreases chance for red marks.
- New colors and prints!
This diaper is made extremely well & fits both of my little one’s perfectly. It is super trim and there have been no leaks with my lil’ super soaker son.
It has a tongue style “insert” that is sewn into the back & all you do is fold it over in the areas that you need it, so NO STUFFING (hence the AIO, yeah, I know). The pul comes down about two inches from the back and about an inch in the front, so no leaks out the top of the front or the back.
And, one part that I like the best is that even after an “air dry”, the cotton inner stays so soft! This is one thing that I do not like about some of the other diapers in my stash. You know if you air dry them they get stiff and feel kind of scratchy. Well, NOT these!
I have wanted to try this diaper ever since I saw them advertised and I am so glad that I did! I am debating on replacing some of my pockets with these wonderful diapers, but “shhhhh…don’t tell the hubby”!
