Sometimes being a Smartipants is a good thing!

I have told you all about my cloth diaper obssession before, so it should come as no surprise that I am constantly on the lookout for new diapers to try. After hearing so many good things about Smartipants diapers I just had to see what the hype was about. Jessica, at Smartipants, was gracious enough to send me a diaper to test and review.

I was so excited the day it arrived, I immediately threw it in the wash (after taking a picture of course!) I had heard that these were great for night time, so I put it on Emma Jane for bed that night.
After I put her to bed, it occurred to me that perhaps only one insert might not be enough to make it 12 hours. Oops! I asked a friend how many she used with her son over night and was dismayed that her answer was "two." At this point, EJ was already asleep, so I just decided to go with it. Imagine my surprise when my daughter woke up the next morning with dry jammies, dry sheets and a very full diaper! What on earth are the inserts made of??? I was amazed at the absorbency.
Of course, I had to see if it was a fluke. So I washed the diaper and put it on her overnight again. This time when she woke up, her jammies were damp. But, she had slept in an hour longer than usual so that might have been what caused the leak. Either way, these inserts are incredible! But I will be using two inserts for overnight in the future, just to be safe!
In addition to the absorbent inserts, Smartipants also boasts a smart sleeve which allows the insert to agitate out in the wash. No more removing dirty inserts before washing!!

I was so happy with this diaper that I ordered one of the Smartipants three packs. I got three diapers plus inserts for less than $40. For one-size diapers that is a lot of bang for the buck! And see how cute John is in his cool blue diaper!

One drawback with this diaper is that even though it is a one size diaper, the insert isn't. I just folded the insert down in the front for John, but I would prefer if it snapped down. That is just a presonal preference and does not affect the function of the diaper.
So do you want one? Come on, I know you do! Well, good news! The fabulous people at Smartipants have offered a Smartipants one size diaper in your choice of color to one lucky reader!
For your first entry? Visit Smartipants and tell me which color you would pick.
