30 Day Cloth Diapering Challenge *Day 5*

"Do I have to carry all these poopy pampers with me everywhere?" No! Of course not, why would we do that to you? I don't know who, but someone invtented wetbags. They are made of the same PUL fabric that diapers are made of. What is PUL? PUL fabric is also known as polyurethane laminated fabric.

Now, you don't have to use a wet bag. I know some mothers just toss their cloth diapers into their washer or in a wet or pail. And wet bags are not only to be used with cloth diapers. They are great for everyday use. You can use to tug beach toys, dirty clothes or anything else that may have a stench or may be damp.

Beginning a few years ago retailers started making different styles of wet bags. Some have drawstrings, others have zippers and there are many more out there.

Back to the original question....
"Do I have to carry all these poopy pampers with me everywhere?" Well, first... the poop should go down the toilet. Then you may choose to rinse it off in cold water and then you place it in the wet bag. Now that dirty diaper will stay in the wet bag without bothering anyone until you are ready to do your laundry.

When I started researching cloth diapers there were only solid color wet bags available, mostly. But now they can match your decor, you can get them custom made and they can have extra pockets which make it so easy when you're on the go and so many other great features. Like the one pictured has a door look and a zipper, and it's attractive!

A wet bag will range anywhere from a few dollars to about $25 for a large nice print wet bag. Some of the most used or well known are Planet Wise and Bummis.

Apart from that... say you don't want it to be hanging on the door. Like I mentioned earlier there are also pail liners. You can get just a regular kitchen trashcan (larger or smaller) and line it with a pail liner. The average price for these are about $15. I would recommend a pail liner for when you are starting out or if you are going to place it in your laundry room and always dump your diapers in there, that way they are ready for when you are ready to wash. To lug either just the liner or the whole pail to the laundry room it may be a little heavy. I prefer wet bags.

That's it for wet bags! I hope you have learned a little more about what you will need to carry around those adorable cloth diapers. I will talk more about the different ways to store those lil stinkiers in the days to come. Soooo much information.

Shout out to Natali Del Conte.... hope all is going well!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
