Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0 Review
Smart Bottoms, a well known USA made cloth diaper brand, has a very popular smart bottoms 3.1 AIO and last year, released the Dream Diaper, a no-prep multi-function cloth diaper. However, after receiving some customer feedback, the diaper was reinvented and the Dream 2.0 released! What are the differences? Find out below and read Elizabeth’s experience using it on her baby.
Have you tried the redesigned Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0? No? Here is why you should! The Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0 is still made from organic cotton and hemp in the interior and snap in snake style soaker, there is still a snap down rise for 4 different fit settings, and the fit (10-35+lbs) is still the same.

Smart Bottoms Dream 2.0 Improvements:
In the Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0 the pocket opening has been reinforced! In the 1.0, parents reported that the front flap was lifting and this issue has been solved with stitching. The flap is now sewn down and you can see the reinforcement around the pocket too. No more ripping the pocket while trying to stuff a prefold in, getting frustrated because your hand will not fit into the tiny hole provided, or not being able to snap it closed because the opening isn’t staying closed. I had my big-handed husband stuff an extra soaker in the pocket and he had no problem doing it! The reinforced opening also helps in keeping whatever you may stuff inside to actually stay inside. The width is also a little wider. This will help bigger babies to keep their bum covered or their explosions from coming out. It is still trim enough for small babies to fit comfortably without having their legs spread.
Overall Impression of Smart Bottoms Dream 2.0
I love that fact that the prep is so easy for the Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.o! No washing 5-8 times like most natural fiber diapers. I washed it once and it was good to go. The inner is very soft even after 1 wash, and the leg elastics are nice and wide to cut down on any chafing. The width, even though it is a little bigger, did not make it uncomfortable or hard for my son to walk but did allow for everything to stay inside the diaper like it should.
While I like the Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0 a lot, the absorbency is not enough for my heavy wetter son, but a medium prefold tucked neatly into the pocket along with the soaker prevented any leaks. The pocket is big enough to stuff a newborn prefold all the way up to a large prefold in it. That is impressive in itself, since most pocket diapers will only fit a medium prefold. It is also still very trim with the medium prefold added and the soaker as you can see. My son is 16 months and 26lbs and still has 2 rise settings to go. This will give him plenty of growing room in it.
The Smart Bottoms Dream Diaper 2.0 is my go-to diaper now, especially since it comes in so many different varieties of prints and colors. I tried out the rover print and my son loved the dogs on it. Now it’s his favorite to grab!
