My son was 5 months old when I first visited Nicki’s Diapers. When I walked in, I was immediately drawn to a table filled with vibrant colors and beautiful patterns. I had no idea what the Planet Wise Wet Bag was, but I couldn’t stop sifting through the multiple patterns of these great bags that I knew I had to take home. (Ask my husband, anything that is appealing to the eye I want immediately, even if I have no clue how I’ll use it.)
I decided on a small wet bag and matching changing pad, as I was tired of the bulky all-in-one changing systems I had previously been using. They weren’t flexible, they were heavy and they were huge! But as a new mom, I didn’t know any different from purchasing all of my baby needs at big box stores.
The Small Planet Wise Wet Bag turned out to be perfect for my son and me. He wasn’t going through as many diapers as he had been when he was younger, and I was ready to get rid of my huge diaper bag. The small wet bag fit just what I needed to take my little guy out and about — two to three diapers, the matching changing pad and a travel case of wipes — and it allowed me to start carrying a purse again.
My son is 15 months old now, and that wet bag has traveled all over the place. I’ve received multiple compliments along the way — from how cute and stylish the pattern is to how compact and easy it looks to use, people take notice, and I’m more than happy to say where I got it from and how great it has been in my life! When I’ve had to throw a wet diaper in the bag until I found a place to toss it, I’ve never had an issue with it leaking through to other items in my purse nor have I had to deal with a permeating funky smell.
It’s been so useful in our life that with our second baby due in the fall, I’ve already purchased another wet bag and changing pad. This way I can still keep the bulky diaper bag at bay and give the kids a little flair in their diapering identity. Not to mention the ease that will come for both my husband and I with grabbing one little bag filled with all the diapering needs when either one of us takes only one of the kids out and about.
