The Smart Bottoms Smart One 3.0 is a diaper I kept hearing a buzz about, so naturally I was curious to try a Smart One 3.0 on my little guy. I was delighted to have the opportunity to review the Smart One 3.0, and I was sent one of their bright and beautiful color combinations to try: Juliet.
There are so many smart features about the Smart Bottoms Smart One 3.0, that make cloth diapering functional, fun, and stylish! The Smart One 3.0 is a one-size diaper with 4 rise settings, fitting babies from 8-35 pounds; for the average-sized baby, the Smart One is the only cloth diaper you will need to take you from birth to potty training. The PUL outer shell keeps wetness in, while the organic cotton inner and ten-layer soaker make sure that moisture is absorbed and distributed without irritating baby’s sensitive skin.
Since I have a boy, I need all of the absorbency I can get in the front of the diaper, which is why the Smart Bottoms Smart One 3.0‘s attached soaker is my favorite feature.
I’m able to fold the soaker in the front, for maximum absorbency, which alleviates unnecessary bulk in the back of the diaper (which you often have in all-in-ones). The Smart One’s attached soaker maintains a trim fit, without sacrificing absorbency, and allows for a quicker drying time (major bonus in my opinion).
The fit of the Smart One 3.0 is another feature that makes this diaper a winner for us, it’s almost as though this diaper was made specifically for Declan. Two rows of snaps for the waist tabs anchor the waistband in place, without being too snug or digging into Declan; I often have to snap the waist tightly, with other diapers, to prevent a gap in the front waist. The fit in the legs is perfect for a mobile baby, with fleece covering the elastic and preventing chafing (in the lower right corner you can see the chafing caused by D’s previous diaper).
In a nutshell, the Smart Bottoms Smart One 3.0:
- is 100% made in the USA (bonus!)
- has a trim fit
- features an attached organic cotton soaker, allowing you to adjust where you need the most absorbency
- the attached organic cotton soaker makes for a much quicker drying time than most AIO diapers
- comes in an array of fun colors combinations and prints (diaper style is important, after all)
I have to say that the Smart One definitely lived up to its reputation. Not only am I pleased with the performance of this diaper, but I am also impressed by the quality workmanship and the vivid colors and patterns available. If I had to start my cloth diaper stash from scratch, Smart Bottom Smart Ones would definitely make up a good part of my collection.
