Smart Bottoms Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Since Avery is out of diapers, this will be my last cloth diaper review until a second baby decides to join us! I'm a little sad, but she's no longer in diapers and obviously it's wrong to review an item without being able to fully review it. 
This diaper was agreed on being sent before Avery nap and Night Trained :( So unfortunately I wasn't able to fully give it a proper review. BUT I will review the materials and such. 

Smart Bottoms is a hybrid system. It's a cover and a prefold insert! 
Sorry for the Cruddy Shadow. The flash wanted to go off, but because it's white on white that didn't work well. 
This is the cover They have 2 adjustable sizes.
 Inside. It's REALLY hard to see, but it's a mesh material in there.
 Prefold Trifolded inside.
 Folded the other way for a smaller baby.
 Opened up.
You can put the prefold on traditionally or trifold it. 

I think Prefolds and covers are the perfect cloth diaper for any size child, they're cheap, easy and they're nothing fancy to figure out. You just fold it in thirds, lay it in a cover and you're good to go. 

They're covers come in 2 sizes. Between the 2 you can get your child diapered from 5-30+ pounds. I'm pretty sure I received the larger of the 2 sizes. 

The prefold inserts come in 3 sizes.They also have the Too Smart Inserts, which are more contoured and lay in, they are backed with a layer of PUL so they are waterproof.
They also carry an all in one diaper with the insert sewn right in.

The covers come in 4 colors, Brown, Blue, Pink and White. Very basic, less choices to make and cute. They're also very affordable as well. 
The cover I received is $18, the prefolds are $7. Too Smart Inserts are $10 and they're AIO diaper is $20.
Think about it like this. 30 Prefolds (would diaper a newborn for about 2-3 days and would last a toddler 5 days or so) and maybe 8 covers in each size, you're looking at $498. This will last you from Birth to Potty Training. Not a lot of money.
Let's say $25 for a box of diapers, every 2 weeks. $50 a month that's $600 a year. You've already saved money!!!! Yes it's more outright, but it's a major saver in the end. 

The material was great, the Prefold was SUPER soft. It hadn't been washed yet, but it got softer with each of it's 2 washes. The cover like I said has a mesh in it, which was pretty cool. It's just a PUL. The Snaps were kind of different with weird placements, but after a while I got it down, just took a minute. 

OH. Smart Bottoms has DIAPER PARTIES! Tell me that's not the coolest thing you've ever heard. You can sign up to host at your own home, but they also show them online for others to learn about. Pretty Neat.

Overall: ***** I really liked this diaper and I think it's a great Hybrid option!

Truthfully I couldn't find much information about the diapers on the site, it seems as though you have to attend a "diaper party" to really learn about the system. I did watch the videos that showed how to put the prefold on different sized babies. The prefold looks very soft and I'd love a chance to try it out.
