Monkey Foot Designs Wet Bag Review and Giveaway

Monkey Foot Designs wet bags are different from the other bags we’ve discussed here on the Green Baby Guide.  Joy used a plastic bag to haul her wet diapers from daycare until she switched to a Bumkins Dirty Duds bag.  I’d always used a bag from a sporting goods store.  What sets the Monkey Foot bags apart from these other options?  They are much, much more stylish and beautiful. 

These custom-made bags are so nice that I almost hesitated using mine for wet diapers, but in the spirit of an honest review, I did.  I have the small bag ($16) in the sea coriander pattern.  When we went on an overnight trip last weekend, I took it along.  My daughter is mostly potty trained but still wears a diaper at night, so I brought just two cloth diapers.  They both fit in the small bag.  I’d recommend the small bag if you need to store just one or two diapers at a time.  The larger bag ($22) will hold four to five diapers, so it would work perfectly for daycare.

The outer fabric is a nice, soft cotton, which is a pleasant change from my regular old nylon wet bag.  (It’s an even bigger step up if you are currently using plastic bags as Joy once did!)  The inside contains a nontoxic, waterproof lining.  Unlike other bags out there, the seams are sealed, so there are no leaks.  The best part is that this bag’s uses are not limited to diapers.  I envision using the bag to tote wet swimming suits or sunscreen to the beach years after my diapering days are over.

Would you like a Monkey Foot Designs bag of your own?  Just post a comment by next Friday and you’ll be eligible to win a small or large bag in the pattern of your choice.   Check out their website to see the array of patterns available.

Congratulations to Alison, the winner of our Natural Pod clothing giveaway!


  1. I’ve been using ziploc bags as well…this would certainly be a step up from there. 🙂

  2. Love the material and would love to win!

  3. What great fabric designs! I love the pod posie one! Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. These are very multi-functional – diapers, food, swimming, etc. And I love the designs.

  5. Ooh, I’d love to win one of those bags! We’re gearing up for baby, due in January, and we still need many cloth diaper supplies. 🙂

  6. Beautiful bags! I’m still in the plastic bag phase (and sometimes I even forget to bring those) so this would be wonderful.


  7. I’m due in March – and with two under two (18 months apart), a wet bag would really come in handy. Hope I win!

  8. Those are so cute! I love the Black and White polka dots!

  9. I’d love to win! This would be just perfect and they are so cute.

  10. I used a plastic bag until I discovered the Planet Wise ones Nicki’s Diapers sells. These look similar. But even more awesome prints. A second bag would be nice since our always seems to be in the wash.

  11. we have two for diapers & now we’re starting to use cloth wipes & they aren’t all fitting! we could use another! 🙂

    thanks for the giveaway!!

  12. Wow! They are all so beautiful. It would take me hours to pick which one I like best. I’ve got the small bumkins bag right now. It works great but one of these would be so cute and like you said absolutely usable after diaper days are over.

  13. oh……..cherry wallflower is so nice and red!

  14. These are lovely! We could use one for a variety of purposes!

  15. Wow! Beautiful. Maybe with one of these, Cameron could wear his cloth diapers outside his house instead of disposables.

  16. They are so beautiful, I love the chocolate scroll!!

  17. Those are way cute! I’d love one to use – for diapers and anything else!

  18. I love all the fun patterns! “Forest Fresh Start” is probably my favorite. These bags are definitely way cooler than my plastic grocery bags 🙂

  19. I NEED this!!!

  20. What a great, modern bag! Fashion and function. And as others said, much better than plastic grocery bags.

  21. ooo, these are so beautiful!! I have been using the plastic bags my newspaper comes in and plastic grocery bags. A bag like this would help me go from cheap and trashy to stylin’. Love the chocolate scroll bag.

  22. Nice bags!! I want one! I hope I win. But if not I guess I’ll have to buy one. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. I am taking the plunge on cloth diapering with my second child who is two weeks old today and love the idea of a ‘cute’ bag to hold your wet diapers when out of the house!

  24. I have been using these bags since my 5 week son was born. I *heart* them. No leaks, super spiffy patterns, and such the bargain! I ordered a small and a medium together off of Etsy. I just love them and can’t speak highly enough for the practicality and the style:)

  25. Oh, i’d LOVE to win an Eggplant Ironwork Wet bag. What beautifull designer fabrics!

  26. Lovely wet bags! Inspired by my raving about how wonderful cloth diapering is, a friend just started cloth diapering her 1- and 2-year olds– and she has a new one on the way. I’d love to be able to give her a stylish wet bag!

  27. Oooooh! These look really nice. I’m currently using a wool zip-top bag. It works, but I have to air it out after using it or it gets pretty smelly. We’re going on a road trip for Christmas, and the larger bag would sure come in handy!

  28. I love the look of these. My local diaper store carries them (I love that I have a local diaper store) and am looking forward to using one in January.

  29. I would love to have one of these bags to use for my son’s cloth diapers. I also love the idea of being able to use them for wet swimsuits too.

  30. These are gorgeous! I’m amazed at how *easy* cloth diapering has been thus far. I do think a wet bag is in our future, though, and I’d love to win one of these! I especially like the idea your suggestion using it far into the future for other things – they’re so lovely no one would EVER suspect that it started out as a sack for dirty diapers. 🙂

  31. I’d LOVE to have one of these for when our daughter gets here in January. I can see LOTS of great uses for these

  32. I would love to win one of these! You can never have too many wet bags. I have built up quite a stash of diapers, so I only do diaper laundry twice a week. Which means sometimes I have to bring plastic bags because my wet bags are all in the laundry! These are too cute…much more stylish than my other plain colored ones!


  33. these are so stinkin’ cute! they should make sweet lil diapers cover from the prints, too:)

  34. I got something like that at the dollarstore but definately does not keep the smell in. We cannot buy anything for cloth diapering around here so this would be a nice addition to what I have.

  35. These sound like a great product. Crossing my fingers to win.

  36. Gorgeous and would be a great start to our cloth diapering baby #2 next summer!

  37. would love to win!!

  38. Love the “Pod Posey”! I so need one of these!

  39. I just went to a cloth diapering 101 class this morning and learned about why I need wet bags. I am new to the site and love the information you offer! Thanks. Oh and I would love to win a bag!

  40. Great bags, with so many uses! I think I’ll have to buy one if I don’t win.

  41. Yes, please! Mommy needs a cute wet bag!

  42. Like so many others- I would LOVE this! Perfect for the cloth diapers!

  43. I love the “Seagreen Coriander”! It was hard to choose just one.

  44. We’re using grocery store bags. I would LOVE to switch to an actual wet bag!

  45. Seagreen coriander is gorgeous and can be used for either girl or boy. Love it.

  46. I could really use another wet bag for the car. These are almost too cute.

  47. I am expecting my first – due in January. We hope to use cloth diapers and a neighbor told me that these are the best wet bags she’s ever used. The hard part will be choosing one of the cute prints!

  48. Thank you everyone who entered this giveaway. The winner is #29–Alanna! Congratulations, Alanna! I’ll be emailing you soon.
