Another item I could not function without as a Fluff-loving mom is a decent wet-bag. Some people just use plastic shopping bags for this, but those are not generally water-proof, and they certainly do not mask stinky diaper odors. I have a large, hanging wet/dry bag that I love, but that is far too big and bulky to tote around with us while we run errands or visit friends and family. Unless it's an all day or weekend trip, it just doesn't make sense to lug it around.
That's why I was so happy when I got the opportunity to review a Monkey Doodlez Wet Bag! These wet bags are the perfect size for a day away from home, even with 2 little butts to cover. I easily fit 7 stuffed one-size pocket diapers into this bag and still had a little room to spare! They are generously sized, at approximately 14"x14" / 35cm x 35cm, and close with a durable zipper that can withstand the tugging and pulling from curious little hands. My 15 month old daughter has an odd fascination with zippers, so durability there is a major plus for me!
They also have a polypropylene webbing handle securely sewn into the side seam. The handle closes with a clasp hook so it can be easily attached to just about anything for added versatility. You can attach this easily to your diaper bag strap, a door knob,your stroller, or pretty much anywhere else you would want to hang your wet bag to keep the stinkies out of reach. I actually hung mine on the rod in a closet, since Sophie was trying to get into it!
Monkey Doodlez Wet Bags are also unique because they are made from a special material that the company custom orders especially for these bags. The fabric is made from 2 layers of durable polyester interlock with the waterproof laminate securely bonded in the middle, so you will won't need to worry about wearing or damaging the laminate.How cool is that?! These bags are made to last!
Let me tell you, the ultimate test of a good wet bag in my mind is how well is masks the odor of its contents. I have used wet bags before that stunk to high heaven, even when securely shut. I am happy to say, this has not been the case with my Monkey Doodlez Wet Bag. On one occasion, we were out all day with both babies. During our excursions, both kids decided to poop. My youngest actually pooped more than once, as younger babies tend to do. When all was said and done, I had 5 poopy diapers in the Monkey Doodlez Wet Bag! I had it stored in my Ed Hardy diaper bag, and was really afraid that when I opened the diaper bag, I would be hit with a horrid stench. I slowly unzipped my diaper bag with impending dread, and....Nothing! The wet bag contained the smell of the soiled diapers and didn't stink up my much loved diaper bag or the contents within it.The wet bag also remained dry to the touch, even though it was packed full of heavily soiled, wet diapers. Success!
Aside from these awesome wet bags, Monkey Doodlez, a proud Canadian company, also offers other great products, such as swim diapers, pail liners, cloth wipes, doublers,odor-busting accessories, AIO's (all-in-one diapers), and a new diaper I would love to try, the Tuck and Go. They are also a authorized distributer of Rockin Green detergents, which I happen to love!
All in all, I am very pleased with my Monkey Doodlez Wet Bag! It is the perfect size to carry on a daily basis, and I still don't sacrifice storage space, as it is very roomy. It also is virtually leak-proof and keeps odor in the bag where it belongs. I give this little gem of a bag 2 enthusiastic thumbs up! You should try one, too!
