The comments on Krissy’s recent post about what’s in her diaper bag made me remember my all-time favorite diaper bag accessory: my Diapees & Wipees. It is a cloth pouch to hold diapers so they don’t get scrunched in the bottom of your diaper bag. Brilliant! The website claims it can hold a couple of diapers and travel wipes, but I have never used it to carry wipes. I fill it with diapers and carry a big-sized travel pack of wipes. It can fit four size 5 diapers, perfect for twins.
I actually bought three pouches. One stays in our emergency bag in the car (the one with clothes, diapers, wipes, and food). The other two stay in our coat closet, aka the diaper bag closet. To leave the house, all I need to do is grab a Diapee & Wipee and travel wipes and I am ready to go. My boys have always been in the same diaper size, so we use one pouch for them. One of my friends with twins has boys who have always been different sizes, so she has two in different colors.
When the boys get close to outgrowing a diaper size, I round up all the Diapees & Wipees and restock all at once. Here in North Carolina, they are available at Target so I can easily include this in my gift basket to new moms. What other diaper bag accessories have been useful to you?
