Smart Bottoms Review AND Giveaway!


I’m going to make a confession. I had planned this review when Baileigh was in diapers. But…. Smart Bottoms didn’t work for me! I made a rookie mistake and thought it was the diaper’s fault when it was actually user error. I didn’t prep it all the way. I know. I know. What was I thinking?! Everyone was raving about these diapers and here I was, getting mad that they were leaking. Jokes on me.

So let’s fast forward two years or so. I’m pregnant with Jackson and the Smart Bottoms community is BOOMING. And I’m over here wondering why I couldn’t love them. That’s when I started reading more about how they needed to be prepped. Imagine the look on my face when I started reading how and why. So because it was clearly my fault on why they didn’t work with Baileigh, I decided to grab a few to try for the new baby. And I’m seriously SO happy that I did!

Smart Bottoms has become my favorite diaper. EVER. And I’m not getting paid to say this. Smart Bottoms diapers take up at least 75% of my stash. And it grows more every day, or so it seems, because of all their exclusive diapers at different retailers. If you scroll down my instagram or facebook page, you’ll see picture after picture of Jackson in his Smart Bottoms diapers. They’re the most absorbent, the most trim fitting, and the easiest diaper we own since they’re an All In One diaper.

Here are some tricks and tips I’ve learned while using my Smart Bottoms diapers-

  • PREP THE DIAPER! Duh. Smart Bottoms are made with organic cotton. Because of this, they are highly absorbent. I haven’t needed a booster yet. Smart Bottoms diapers need to be washed at least 6 times to strip the natural oils that keep the attached insert from absorbing liquids. It could still take another 4 washes to fully prep your diapers. Don’t skip this process or you may miss out on the awesomeness of this diaper like I did with Baileigh. They can be washed with other loads of laundry such as towels and don’t need to be dried in between every wash during the prepping process.
  • FLEECE LINERS. This is my newest discovery and boy, is it amazing! When Smart Bottoms began to fit Jackson, he was still exclusively breastfed. And I didn’t “need” a liner. I didn’t use them with Baileigh so I didn’t understand why you would want an added thing. Well, I finally found the light. Some of those diapers stained badly. Now does it matter for my use? No. But it will hurt resale value hen the time comes. And I’m not a huge fan of sunning just because I never feel like I have the time. Now that he’s eating food, his poops are a little more solid. And since I’m throwing on a fleece liner in every diaper…. No stains! My diapers look brand new. Another perk to fleece liners? They make the diaper feel stay-dry. The moisture is no longer sitting on his skin. This is a great thing for babies with sensitive skin- you can still use Smart Bottoms!

Okay, so the $29 price tag can be a little hard to swallow at times. Trust me- it was hard for me too in the beginning. But I switched my views and started to see it as an investment. If it works so well, then the resale value will probably stay high. And if it’s a diaper I like a lot (or love, in this case) then it would be well worth it. If you’re having a harder time paying that for whatever reason- they also have covers and inserts. I have actually started buying some of these too! The inserts are made of the same organic cotton as the AIO attached insert. The covers sell for $22 and the three pack of inserts are $15. I have found that they’re my favorite inserts to use even in other covers.

And another “fun fact” about Smart Bottoms…. These diapers are 100% manufactured in the USA. I absolutely love supporting brands that are based and manufacture in the US. Smart Bottoms also stands behind their high quality diapers and offer a 1-year Limited Warranty.

Here’s a video where I share some more of my favorite Smart Bottoms products!

    My favorite Smart Bottoms product is their covers and wetbags. I use the wetbags for everything! And I love the covers because there’s less prep to do and I can keep the beautiful prints on my toddler longer than one diaper change.

    I absolutely love Smart Bottoms diapers. We have 2 right now with a 3rd on the way. They never, ever leak so I use them (and a couple other brands) as our going out diapers. When I let my son choose which one to put on before we go out he always picks one of the Smart Bottoms, do they must be comfy for baby too.
