Why do you need a wet bag for cloth diapers? 

There are more and more moms who are considering using a wet bag for baby’s cloth diapers. It can be seen that a wet bag is one of the most essential items of a mother when taking care of the baby’s health. 

Why is getting a good wet bag important?

Convenience 

While using cloth diapers, especially when you want to take your baby for a walk or go to your neighbor, you will need more than a cloth diaper. At this time, using a wet bag is very convenient. You will not need to scratch in a disorder bag to find a new diaper. 

Clean

Without a doubt, using a wet bag is much more clean than using some plastic bag to store your baby’s dirty cloth diapers. 

Without a wet bag, you have two options: either carry the dirty diapers with your hands (eeww) or toss it inside a plastic bag (you don’t want to hurt the environment more, do you?).

You should wash the wet bag often for the next use.

Ease to use 

The best wet bag for cloth diapers is the one that allows you to use it easily, especially when you can only use one hand to put away the dirty diapers while holding your baby with the other hand.

Durability

Because the wet bag is made of waterproof material, it is quite durable. It can be resistant to rain and sunlight. You can take it to go out many hours without worrying about the quality.  

How to choose the best wet bag for cloth diapers

On the current market, you can easily find any kind of bag for baby’s cloth diapers with different materials and forms. However, here is something to keep in mind when you have to decide which wet bag to go for.

Quantity

I highly recommend that you should have two or three bags with a small or medium size. One for clean diapers, one for dirty diapers, one for everything else or back up.  

Material

The wet bag has to be water resistant. What’s more, with different materials, it can have more features, such as anti-odor, absorbing, etc.

Think of how you are going to use the wet bag, then decide the material.

How to wash the wet bag

Ideally, you should clean the bag after using it. If possible, expose it under the sunlight to avoid the mold and bacteria. 

The wet bags can be washed with a washing machine or by hands. If you have trouble washing it due to hard water, read my guide on how to make laundry time less painful even if you have hard water

The verdict

Cloth diapering is so damn hard. And even when you try so hard, the pee smell still irritates you big time.

You cannot do laundry every time your baby pees but you can do something to make sure the pee doesn’t get to other clothes: a wet bag.

A wet bag for a cloth diaper comes in handy when you have to take your little one out, for a walk, shopping or go to the pool. So make sure you can the one that is versatile enough for all the occasions.
