I love this diaper! I've used the same 7 smartipants on my last 3 babies and it still looks great! I have a super harsh wash routine with bleach, sanitary cycle, dryer use and Tide and these diapers still look brand new! They do not leak, but I do have to stuff them with one smartipants insert and one newborn MF insert from cottonbabies for my 19mo super soaker son. :) I use them at night with an added hemp doubler as well. Great little diapers, great price!
The quality is great - snaps are sturdy, material is durable, and elastic is stretchy. I love the tunnel design for the pocket, allowing the insert to come out in the washer (mine always agitate out.) The downside? They do not fit my 3.5 month old baby. She is 13lbs and still the leg openings are too big. I keep waiting for the day when she can wear them because I do like the design
Our favourites diapers, and we use these almost exclusively now. They are so trim, look nice, work well, and I LOVE that the insert washes out. For people who are new to cloth, these are what I recommend because they are so easy.
They are clearly great quality and wash up a dream. Ours still look practically brand new.
Dry really quick too. Love them

Once again I have to pull rank and say that out of 100+ cloth diapers I have tried- the Smartipants is up there really high on my list.
The sizing has worked with my tall/skinny kid and still fits him at almost 3 years old (we sometimes use it for nights but he is PT) and my chunky monkey.
The insert seems wimpy but we have never had an absorbency issue. I don't double stuff it but probably wouldn't if I needed to. I would use a different diaper.
The Snaps are tough... unique to this brand and they are durable.
I love that they now offer more colors. I have used the same Smartipants, the only one I own, for almost 3 years and on both kids. It almost looks new.
I really hate that retailers can't carry them anymore. Really really hate that.
The price is extremely good for a one size diaper. Best of all perhaps is that the insert really does agitate out. I wish Smartipants knew how much I loved this diaper and how many they have probably sold from me! LOL
I have a very old video demonstration from 2009 which shows it being sized and how it looks on a then 5 month old (I think)
I am a first time mom and decided that I wanted to use cloth diapers on my son. I researched different brands while pregnant and settled on Smartipants. I am overall satisfied with the diapers, however we do have leakage issues at night. My son has had the liners doubled up for the last 3 months and as long as he is changed every two hours or less, we do not have any issues. At night though, he soaks through the doubled liners and is usually in need of an outfit change as well as a sheet change. We are planning on buying more liners and try tripling him up at night to see if that works. I am concerned to see how bulky the diaper will be as they are pretty bulky now.
I would buy these again because the ease of use is great

I love, love, love Smartipants diapers! We have used them exclusively since our daughter was about 2 months old. After trying several different styles and brands of diapers, this is by far my favorite. I like it for several reasons:
1) They are super easy to use!
2) They wash well and have lasted over a year and a half with little sign of wear.
3) They are relatively inexpensive (much less than many other pockets and way cheaper than disposables, plus the one-size fit has made it so we don't have to buy any more as she gets bigger)
4) They are made in the USA!
I would recommend these to anyone looking for a simple, cheap way to cloth diaper. It's good for the environment, for your baby, and for your pocketbook!
