Itti Bitti Luxury Wetbags are something I have admired from afar for quite awhile and have really wanted to try out. As you might imagine, I was pretty excited when Michelle from Green Diaper Demos sent me one to try out for this review and giveaway!
This review was originally supposed to run in conjunction with our Itti Bitti Boo fitted cloth diaper review, but unfortunately, my camera died and I had to wait (forever!) for it to come back from the repair shop. My sincerest apologies to Michelle for falling through on this. Please note that while this wetbag was a gift, it did NOT influence my opinion in any way. What is shared here is my honest review.
BRAND: Itti Bitti
STYLE: Zippered Wet Bag
SIZE: This is a medium sized wetbag. It fits 4-5 diapers (I can fit 6 trim AIO’s). It is approximately 13×10.5 inches.
MATERIAL: Minky outer with PUL laminated on the backside (inside) of the minky.
The Itty Bitty Luxury Wetbag is really, really soft. In fact, my littlest is absolutely in love with it and I have found her more than once pretending that it was her blankie! The other day when the Itty Bitty bag was in the wash, we had our Imagine dinosaur wet bag in the bathroom. When she went to put her dirty cloth wipe into the bag, she remarked, “The dinosaur bag is not usually soft. I like the soft bag.”
Aside from the bag being luxuriously soft, it works well. When I say that it works, I mean that it keeps the wet & the stink in. I went so far as to put an overnight diaper with stinky toddler urine zipped in the wetbag, and I left it in there for FOUR DAYS (on purpose) in our tiny bathroom. Guess what? Even at the end of those four days, with three additional dirty diapers (one from each subsequent night), there was no funky, nasty smell coming from the wetbag. I was duly impressed!!
This wetbag is a great size–it’s perfect for throwing in your purse or diaper bag. Or, once you have a day trained toddler, it’s just the right size for collecting night time diapers and cloth wipes used during the day.
For outings, I did find myself missing having a dry pouch on the wetbag. I tend to like to put my clean items in the dry pouch, and then putting the dirty items in the wet pouch when we’re done with them. However, I’m a bit of a minimalist, and don’t love carrying a big diaper bag. So, if you tote a diaper bag along with you, this won’t be a problem for you
The only other minor improvement I can think to suggest is that I’d love it even more if the Itti Bitti Luxury wetbag had a strap so I could hang it in the bathroom or when I’m out and about, to carry it with. Again, this really is minor and doesn’t really detract from the cuteness, effectiveness or convenience of this great little wetbag.
This is definitely a great wetbag option and I highly recommend it!
