How does one hold those dirty diapers while at the hospital, clinic, emergency room or a doctor’s office? Or dirty outfits that got wet? The answer is something that I wish I had known earlier. Wet bags! Mamas who already cloth diaper have probably heard of Planet Wise Inc. For those of you who haven’t heard of them, they make wet bags, pail liners,wet/dry bags and more. They are PVC-FREE, waterproof and machine washable and dryable with clothes or cloth diapers!
Back in June, when J had surgery, we used the wet/dry bag to hold pre-stuffed diapers to make diaper changing easier for those doing it. The bag held approximately 5-6 diapers in the ‘dry’ part. Previously we hadn’t had to worry about diapers with #2 because of his ileostomy, so not having a wet bag didn’t pose a problem. It’s very important item to have because if your child has loose stools, you aren’t going to want to put that diaper into the diaper bag and not everyone remembers to bring grocery bags, especially ones without holes! I recommend getting at least two wet/dry bags to be able to have one in the wash and still have another one on hand to use.
The only con that I’ve found is the handle isn’t as securely sewn as I would like. It’s not a big problem unless you really fill the bag with soaking wet diapers and hang the bag by the handle for a long period of time. Other than that, it’s one of the items that you won’t regret getting.
Where can you buy it? Most diaper retailers carry Planet Wise bags. You can find a complete list of retailers here.
