Fit: These diapers have a great fit. There are overlapping snaps on the wings for smaller babies, and the snaps are spaced out far enough that they prevent "wing droop". I like the elastic around the legs, it's not too tight unlike some other diapers I have tried, so no red marks! Elijah is almost 7 months old and about 22lbs. and wore the diaper on the second rise setting.
Performance: The diaper does it's job! One thing that could be better is the insert, I felt like it could be a bit more absorbent, a few more layers and it would be perfect. In order to wear this diaper overnight I would have to add an extra insert, but it was perfect during the day. We haven't had any problems with leaks and the fabric closes to baby wicks away moisture to keep them dry.
Ease of use: This is the perfect diaper to bring with you while you are out. Instead of stuffing the insert into the pocket, you slide it into the "sleeve". When you take the diaper off you throw it into the pail and the insert agitates itself out in the wash, leaving you with one less step than other pocket diapers! The outer layer is waterproof PUL, so no cover is needed. Just put the diaper on, then take it off when you're done. Easy peasy. The only thing that might be difficult for some are the snaps. I personally prefer snaps because they last longer than hook & loop, and you don't end up with a diaper chain when you wash them.
Value: These pocket diapers are economically priced and work just as well as the more expensive ones. You can buy a single diaper for $14.95 and it comes with one insert. They also sell 3-packs for $39.95. The more you buy, the more you save! You can also purchase a 10-pack of the smart sleeve inserts for $19.95. Smartipants have 3 different size settings and are made in the U.S, so you are getting a really good deal!
You can purchase Smartipants on their website.
