Yesterday I took the boys to the library for the morning. And what does that have to do with cloth diapering? Well, it just reminded me yet again, that having a travel wet bag is important when you’re cloth diapering full time!
Since I’d be out for the whole morning, I loaded up the big diaper bag with snacks, drinks, diapers, wipes, extra clothes, etc. And my Planetwise wet / dry bag, which I’d received for review purposes.
So… why does it matter what travel wet bag I took?
Well, when it was time to take the baby to the restroom and change his diaper, I didn’t have to cart the ENTIRE big diaper bag with me. No. I just tucked what I needed into the dry section of my travel wet bag and headed off.
Whether you take a lot of family trips, or just take your babes out around town on errands, you’re going to want a great travel wet bag (or if you’re like me, more!) in your cloth diaper stash.
I’ve reviewed the Planetwise Hanging wet / dry bag previously (read post here), which is definitely a great wet bag for long trips. I’ve wanted the medium Planetwise wet / dry bag ever since! Because… that dry bag part on the side? It’s perfect for throwing a few diapers and package of wipes… and you’re good! It’s the lightest way to travel with baby.
The Planetwise medium dry bag section is roomy enough to tuck a good three or four dry diapers in the outside and a pack of wipes. Here’s a look at everything I fit into the dry part of my bag (with the wet part empty). Three all-in-one or pocket diapers, two inserts (because my baby often wears a Flip or other type of cover), and a large package of wipes.
Another benefit of a wet / dry bag? You won’t have to fish around in your diaper bag for all the items you’ll need for a diaper change. It’s all “in the bag,” to pull out together without a frustrating rummage!
How do you travel with cloth diapers? Do you have a wet / dry bag in your stash?
