One of the most frequently asked questions I get from other cloth diapering mom’s is, “What diaper bag do you use with your cloth diapers?” Cloth diapers do take up a little more room in your bag compared to disposable diapers. I remember with my first child, I would stuff 10-12 disposable diapers in the bag and just leave them there. Every few days I would have to add more, but I never worried about having enough diapers even if I used a smaller diaper bag.
I’m also not a big fan of bags, especially diaper bags. When they were babies, I had Target, Walart, and Babies”R”Us to shop at and they didn’t have anything cute back then. I ended up using a tote bag for both of my kids because I just couldn’t see myself carrying a Winne the Pooh bag around with me all day. Wow, how things have changed since then. I’m sure cute bags were around then, but I never found them.
Let me introduce you to the Lassig Tender Multipocket diaper bag. Lassig is a company from Germany who’s goal is to design and manufacture sustainable products from non-toxic and eco-friendly components. Lassig bags do NOT contain PVC, azo dyes, phthalates, nickel or cadmium so they are safe for you and your baby. The Lassig line includes diaper bags, satchels, backpacks, wheeled suitcases (trolley’s) and even lunch bags.
I’ve been using my Lassig bag for travel mostly or when we’re going to be out for most of the day. It’s large enough to hold my Chromebook, iPad, and miscellaneous items that I pack if they kids are coming along with me. It’s stylish enough for me to carry as a travel bag without people wondering why I’m carrying a diaper bag. I love that it has lots of little pockets that are designed with a mom in mind. One of the front pockets has space for keys, cell phones, and even my wallet.
How does it work for a diaper bag? Will it hold cloth diapers?
I think that answers your question, doesn’t it? I was able to easily fill it with 6 one-size cloth diapers, a change of clothing, a wet bag, a burp cloth, changing pad, snacks, a sippy cup, and all of my belongings as well. You could easily add a few more items and still be able to close it easily.
What items do you put in your diaper bag? I asked some friends of mine and here are some of the items they listed:
- Wet bag, breast pads, tummy drops and Tylenol. -Nicole G.
