529 Baby Review

The wet bag. Considered a cloth diapering essential by most, and something that has failed me time and time again over the past year. I've tried pail liners of different brands, only to find a pool of, uhm, diaper... leftovers.... in the bottom of the pail on laundry day, followed by a dripping mess from the bathroom to the laundry room. I've tried hanging wet bags that literally drip, more...diaper... goo... from the seams. Nasty. Especially with a curious toddler and 2 dogs who lick every off the floor. Yuck!

Out of desperation, I contacted Kristen from 529 Baby about her variety of hanging wetbags. She sent me a large hanging bag with top center handles for easy hanging on hooks or door knobs.

Although her wetbags have a zippered top, I do prefer to leave them open at all times. I honestly feel that it does help with air circulation in the bag and keeps stink down. I use the same practice when I use a regular diaper pail.

Not only does Kristen offer bags with a top center handle, but you can also choose towel bar handles and a side-snapping handle:

I've been using this bag for about 2 months now, very regularly, and am very pleased so far. I tiny holes in the PUL like I've found with my big-name pail liners, and no leaky seams like I've seen with my other WAHM (work-at-home-mom) hanging bags. Kristen did point out to me however, that bags that hang with a corner down (like side-snapping bags) are more prone to leaking.

The large bag I received measures 19.5"x22" and holds 15-18 diapers, which is 2 to 3 days worth for us, depending on what diapers we use. 529 Baby also offers medium (6-8 diapers) and small (2-3 diapers) wetbags as well.

Please visit her on Facebook, Hyena Cart, or eBay!

  1. Yes, I have tried Green Line diapers. I really love the concept of them but they didn't work for us so I sold it. I love the prints and the idea of the toggle leg adjustments but my toddler can be a challenge at diaper time (to put it mildly) and I need a quick on diaper. It doesn't take long to adjust, but it does when your toddler is doing gymnastics, lol.
