Product Review: Planet Wise Small Wetbag

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Wetbags can be used in a variety of ways. Most people use them to store dirty dipies, however they are also handy for wet bathing suits or other soiled/wet clothing items. You can also use them to store your cloth wipes as well as for mama cloth. Planet Wise makes awesome wetbags! Some of the key features include:

  • Made in the USA
  • Made with high quality designer fabrics with coordinating waterproof inner material and locking zipper.
  • Each bag is innovatively sewn with hidden seams and sealed for no wicking or leaking.
  • Resists most stains odors – keeping smells in.

Planet Wise wetbags come in 3 sizes and tons of awesome colors/prints:

  • The small measures 8″ x 10″ and holds 1 -2 cloth diapers
  • The medium measures 13″ x 16″  and holds 8-9 cloth diapers
  • The large measures 18″ x 21″  and holds 16-17 cloth diapers

 

My good friend Michelle recently started using a Planet Wise wetbag and shared her thoughts on it with us:

“Last month I bought some new mama cloth to try out. I went the Imse Vimse Menstrual Pads with Wings which I ended up LOVING! When I placed the order at Mom’s Milk Boutique I wasn’t sure about the fact that they are white, but just like cloth diapers I can sun them and ta-da… no stains! My friend Sarah at Breastfeed.Babywear.ClothDiaper.Naturally figured I would need a wetbag to go along with them so she asked if I wanted to try out a small Planet Wise wetbag. Yes, please! was my reply. This month was the perfect time for me to try it out since I had so many errands to run. With the amount of time I would be away from home I wasn’t sure if I would be able to stick to my mama cloth all week. However the Planet Wise wetbag definitely made it doable.

I could stick a couple of clean pads in the wetbag, then put that into my purse and head right out the door. Wherever I was, I didn’t worry about others knowing what I had in my wetbag. I could slip to the bathroom with everything I needed in the bag (a clean pad and somewhere to put the other one). Even my kids didn’t ask me what it was. It went with me everywhere, the park, other people’s houses…all over the place! It was really nice that the smell stayed entirely contained in the wetbag and nothing leaked in my purse. When my cycle was over I washed the wetbag right along with my mama cloth.  Once everything was dry, I put all the pads right back into the wetbag. Now my clean pads have a place to stay…until next month!”

So happy to hear how well it worked out for Michelle! Congrats on the eco-friendly choice you made to switch to mama cloth and thanks a bunch for the feedback! Planet Wise wetbags truly are a great choice for all your wetbag needs! 🙂

Sarah’s Top 3 Favorite Cloth Diapers

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011


We decided to switch to cloth diapers when my first son was 7 months old. I had been curious about cloth for quite some time but was overwhelmed by all the choices. My solution? Try a little bit of everything! Over the course of cloth diapering 3 kids in the last 4+ years I have experimented with many different cloth diapers. My husband teases me that we’re not actually going to save money using cloth diapers if I keep buying them. But the truth is cloth diapers are addicting! I have a hard time resisting the cuteness of baby butt fluff. At this point my stash is quite eclectic as but I definitely have my favorites. Here’s my top 3 choices for cloth diapers:

Pre-folds and Bummis Covers:
These make the perfect newborn diapering system which unfortunately I didn’t discover until my third son. Truthfully they intimidated me. Therefore I make a point to publically proclaim my love for prefolds so other moms don’t miss out on their fabulousness! I seriously did not experience any leaks or blowouts with my prefolds and Bummis covers. And we all know newborn breastmilk poops can be quite explosive; but Bummis are definitely up for the challenge! I was usually able to use the same cover for a couple diaper changes, as long as it didn’t get poop on it. Besides being easy to use, easy to clean, and an all-around great diaper, prefolds and Bummis covers are a cheaper investment than some of the other available newborn diapering systems. This is beneficial because newborns grow so fast! I prefer to invest in a pricier system for the older infant/toddler years of diapering. A sufficient newborn stash would include approximately 30 prefolds and 8 covers. That would easily get you through two days with plenty left over to use while laundering the dirty dipes on the third day. Depending on what fold you use, you may also want to get a few Snappis.

Thirsties
I have the old school, version 1 Thirsties AIOs and love them dearly! They are super trim yet keep everything well contained. You have the option to stuff them with an extra liner but I never do…even as an overnight diaper they do just fine on their own. There have been a few changes made to Thirsties since I purchased mine a few years back. The new version is called Thirstes Duo Diapers. They come in two sizes and can be adjusted with snaps. They also come in super cute prints! My favorite is Blackbird. A few additional improvements have been made and I am eager to try them out. I am already so in love with the Thirsties brand I am wondering how it could be improved upon? I think I’ll have to order some to find out.

Bumgenius 4.0
These diapers really are genius! My experience with them has been completely positive. They are one of the more reasonably priced pocket diapers on the market; however they truly are an excellent, high-quality choice cloth diaper. They are a one-size diaper so they are likely to fit your child from birth through potty training, again making it a worthwhile investment. I personally prefer the hook and loop closure over the snap closure (I find snaps cumbersome with diapering a busy toddler who wants to do everything but lay still while you change their diaper), however snaps do tend to hold up longer and stay cleaner.

Here’s what I’m drooling over and want in my stash:
• Thirsties Duo Diaper in Blackbird and Hoot

Thirsties Duo Diaper in Hoot

• Bummis Super Brite Diaper Cover in Orange and Green

Bummis Super Brite Diaper Cover in Green

• Ecoposh recycled Organic One Size fitted. I have never tried these nor do I know anyone who uses them…they sound super cool! The Ginger is my favorite color.

EcoPosh Recycled Organic One Size Fitted in Ginger

• And while I’m dreaming up the perfect stash it would also include some Planet Wise Wetbags. Their prints are beautiful! Yes, I am referring to something that holds dirty diapers as beautiful. Haha!

Now to convince hubs we need more cloth. And have a baby girl so I can pick out some fun girlie fluff!

What’s in your stash? What’s your favorite cloth diaper?
