Wahmies Wet Bags, Diaper Pail Liners Win Awards

Wahmies cloth diaper wet bags and DSQ cloth diaper pail liners recently won top parenting awards. If you have ever used Wahmies products, I am sure this comes as no surprise to you. If you are new to Wahmies cloth diapers and cloth diaper accessories, you are in for a real treat. Wahmies products are very popular with moms and dads who cloth diaper.

Wahmies new diaper service quality – DSQ pail liners won the iParenting Media Hot award and the Mom’s Best Award. These new DSQ cloth diaper pail liners have heat sealed seams to prevent leaks. They also have a new elastic loop closure system (similar to the Little for Now cloth diaper pail liners). These are perfect for keeping smells in while transporting diapers or carrying them to the laundry room. Since the loop is just the right size to close the bag it is MUCH safer than having a drawstring product.

Babies and toddlers have strangled on drawstrings – which is why they are no longer allowed on baby or kids clothing. Yet many companies sell drawstring bags, assuming that kids will not have access to them. Cloth diaper pails are usually in a baby’s room or near where they play – so access should be assumed. Since every kid I have ever known puts any loose cord/ribbon/drawstring they find around their neck – I simply will not sell any drawstring products. Now, thanks to Wahmies, I can offer a second brand of diaper pail liners without compromising safety.

A lot of mom’s ask me if a diaper pail liner is a necessity. One mom on the Mom’s Best Award summed up my feelings exactly, “”It’s nice not to have to touch dirty diapers to do the laundry. Everything just gets thrown in together!” Of course, I also really love the fact that with a diaper pail liner I almost never have to scrub the cloth diaper pails. With three pails in our house, that is one chore I can live without.

Wahmies DSQ pail liners come in a wide array of colors and several really cute prints. Since all of their prints are polyester, they hold up great to washing and don’t wick at the seams.

Wahmies Fun Prints Wet Bags also won both the iParenting Media Award. These adorable wet bags have been wildly popular for years – not only do they hold in odors, now they have heat sealed seams on the waterproof layer of the bags so you can count on a wick-free wet bag. Wahmies wet bags, available in 3 sizes, come in collectible “Fun Prints.” These prints usually sell out fast as most prints are limited editions. Wahmies wet bags are wonderful for organizing your diaper bag. I keep one wet bag with a clean change of clothes, one for diaper bag toys, and one for dirty diapers. Since they are all different, I know exactly where everything is in my diaper bag. Moms I know use them for cosmetic bags, sippy cup holders, swim suits, soccer cleats and anything else you can imagine. When Eva is old enough, I plan to use one for quiet time activities like crayons and paper so I never have to worry about entertaining a bored child!

Kissaluvs Cloth-N-Go Wetbag

Kissaluvs Cloth-N-Go Bag

Kissaluvs Cloth-N-Go wetbags are cute, but you know how we operate here at Cloth Diaper Reviews – cute just doesn’t cut it! Function is the name of the game here and these bags are super-functional. No wicking! They hold just what you need for a short trip to the store, a trip to the post office, a walk around the neighborhood or any of the dozens of other little trips we moms make each week.

I especially love that the handle is nice and long, so it is comfortable in your hand or you can wrap it around anything to free your hands. The snap allows you to attach it nearly anywhere. I have even used it attached to the waist strap of a mei tai so my hands are totally free but we still have that emergency diaper on hand (and a place for my keys). I know my kid is not the only one who choose the worst possible times to need a diaper change faster than expected.

The outside is a cute print with two pockets so you can store your keys, a diaper wipes spray (Kissaluvs diaper lotion potion, of course!), and clean wipes (Kissaluvs makes those too!). One of the pockets even has a snap so little things stay in place. Inside is a zippered wet bag that won’t wick and will help seal odors in so you are not constantly reminded of the contents.

I was lucky enough to get in on the testing phase with these bags. The final product is perfect. My original sample wasn’t waterproof enough for my tastes – so I explained that to Tashi Nibber, the owner of Kissaluvs. Sure enough, she found a way to make them so leak proof that she tells me she filled one with water and it didn’t leak. While I am not recommending anyone try that at home, you can rest assured that this is one wet bag that won’t be wicking!

I have several pocketed wet bags and they are perfect for so many things. I keep one in the car with an emergency changing set. No more surpises on the road when our darling runs out of diapers. They also make perfect toiletry bags for travel for both mom and dad. If your shampoo implodes at high altitude, your clothes won’t foam when you wear them.

My favorite use, though, is as an eating out kit. We usually bring along a jar of food in case we order something Eva can’t eat (it’s tough when you only have 8 teeth AND have food allergies!). We also make good use of our Bumkins waterproof bib (someone should study how a baby can spread one bite of food so far – I am sure there is a use in the space program or energy conservation or something). The side pockets hold a few flannel face wipes and a couple of spoons (one for her to use, one for us to feed her with). All packed up and ready to go, this little bag has been a life saver for us. After a typically messy meal, we can wet the wipes, clean little hands and face (and table and chair and Mommy). All the messy stuff goes in the bag for washing when we get home. No leaky bibs, errant spoons or messy wipes in the diaper bag!

I am sure you’ll find a million uses for these cute little bags – and the price is great. Grab one in each of the three prints – I promisey you’ll be glad you did.

Kissaluvs Cloth-N-Go bags are available at Little for Now cloth diaper store.

Wahmies Cloth Diaper Wet Bags Review

Wahmies cloth diaper wet bags are cute, well-made and wick-free. Gotta love them. Wahmies owner, Lisa

Adkins, is also one of the nicest people in the cloth diapering world, so I love selling her products. Wahmies was actually started by another mom, but Lisa bought the company a couple of years back. Lisa is also the mompreneur behind Drybees diapers and was the original owner/creator of Sheepish Grins, a company I now own. All of this while raising two kids and still working full-time in the West Virginia schools with kids who have speech problems.

Wahmies wet bags are super popular and people will go to great lengths to get the perfect print. Some cloth diapering moms develop a bit of an obsession with collecting these cute bags. And why not? At about $16 per bag, it is an affordable addiction. I need a cute wet bag for sunscreen, lotion and diaper cream. I need another for keeping all the baby food and snacks organized in the diaper bag. One for the change of clothes in the diaper bag so they don’t get scattered about every time I need something from the bottom of the diaper bag. I use one in my gym bag for wet swimsuits. The small bags are the right size for my cloth pads. Oh, yeah, and one for the cloth diapers.

Some moms use a Wahmies wet bag for wipes, with a matching one for the diapers. Other moms use a large wet bag to hold cloth diapers near the family bed or in the downstairs bathroom.

Wahmies cloth diaper wet bags come in three sizes. Small, regular and all-day. The small ones will hold wipes or one cloth diaper. The regular size will hold 4-6 diapers, so they are perfect for most outings. The all-day size will hold 6-8 diapers, so it is a good choice for longer outings or for use as a small hanging wet bag. The all-day size has a handle sewn on.

All Wahmies print bags are made with one layer of cotton fabric and one layer of PUL (polyurethane laminate), sewn together at the top only, so you don’t have to worry about wicking even if you have some sopping wet diapers in there.

Wahmies get points for quality and cuteness, and they are still made in the USA, unlike several other brands. Also, Lisa is committed to supporting work at home moms, so she retails her products through small, family-owned businesses and not through big-box retailers.
