Diaper Bag Essentials: The Wet Bag
We all know that you pack at least twice if not three items what you think you will need when packing for a baby. Not packing enough is either a rookie mistake that we all only make once! Let’s face it, there are just some things that should be included when you bring baby home..and a diaper bag essentials listing should be one of those things!
Besides the obvious diaper bag which we probably received several as shower gifts, I have a few things that I always carry with me (whose kidding – I still carry with me when traveling and my little ones are no longer wearing diapers).
One of my diaper bag essentials is the Wet Bag
Oh you will only once forget your wet bag if you are traveling with a little one. Especially a little one in cloth diapers or learning to potty train. Think about it, what will you do with all those rinsed out but still wet and yuck diapers, clothes and probably socks, undershirts, bibs, etc.
The best solution I have found is a wet bag and our favorite right now is the Wet Bag from Buttons Diapers.
Their bags are awesome!
-Made of Stain and Water resistant PUL
-Anti-microbial and Lead Free
-Interior rolled seams to prevent leaks
-Sturdy straps for hanging on strollers, doorknobs or hooks
-Machine washable, Line dry or Machine dry low
The interior of the bag is sewn with rolled seams to prevent leaks and keep odors in. They are not water proof but do hold in moisture from damp items.
They are made to store wet items and are easy to clean. Simply machine wash and hang up to dry to maintain shape. The Wet Bag is available in three different designs and sizes.
We use ours for trips to the pool, lake or beach. Toss in a towel, a bottle of water and some powder when heading to the beach. Rinse off and sprinkle the powder over any sand that is stuck to your little ones (or your feet). The sand will fall right off. Toss the wet swimsuits and towels back in the wet bag and everyone can ride home without having sand all over them and your car.
