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.
