Review and Giveaway–J&N Baby Wetbag

I was recently asked by the owner of J&N Baby wetbag to do a review and giveaway.  So first up is the Review.

THE SIZES:  These wetbags come in 4 sizes so.. no matter what the use there is a size for you!  The sizes that I received were great.  The larger one I received (20”x17”)was great to put in the nursery and add dirty diapers to as my baby used them.  Currently it has 6 pocket diapers and 6 inserts, with it only being a little over half full. The smaller one that I’m giving away appears the perfect size to use in your diaper bag and when out on the run.
THE FABRIC  These wetbags come in 10 different fabric designs.  They are constructed of just a single layer of PUL.  Which I actually LOVE.  The downfall to my more expensive double layered wetbag is that, it is a bit heavier and when thrown in the wash, the two layers separate and pop out in opposite directions and it takes a bit of time getting the layers back matched up.  This isn’t a HUGE problem, just gets annoying when I wash the wetbag every time I use it with the dirty diapers.  So this single layer PUL wetbag is better in this way.  I have this one and my other one hanging side by side and I tend to use this one first EVERY time! The other thing I just noticed when going back to measure the size of mine, was that the smell, or lack of smell.  The PUL although I don’t think is advertised as a smell blocker, IT IS.  I leave the zipper open at the top while the wetbag is hanging in the nursery so its easy to just drop the dirty diaper in it.  Even with the zipper open it sort of folded on itself and kept the smell in until I reached in and got my head up by the open zipper to count the diapers that were in it.  After this pungent wall of smell hit me, I stepped back and smelled the outside of the bag, (not by the zipper) and noticed NO SMELL.  I love this because my diapers get washed every 2-3 days so this is a key concept for me… keep the smell away!!
CONSTRUCTION:  Like I mentioned before this is a single layer of PUL fabric, which I love.  But the stitching is first class.  I have been using this bag for about 3 weeks with it being washed approximately every 3-4 days, and none of the stitching has come undone or any faults have been noticed in the wetbags seams.  The zipper is a small zipper with small teeth which seals better than large tooth zippers.  Therefore a great zipper to use on a wetbag.  On the corner each of the bags has a strap for hanging.  It has a great plastic snap that holds well and isn’t metal so no chance of rusting!
SUMMERY:  In summery I love this wetbag and choose it over my other more expensive ones.  These wetbags are super affordable at only $10.00.  And are easy to use and wash. Construction is great!  The only thing I could see making this GREAT wetbag even better, would be to put another layer of PUL on one side with a separate zipper into a second compartment, so that when on the go you have a place to put your clean diapers and a section for your dirty diapers.  With that said, most wetbags don’t have this option, its just an option I dream about in a super light weight wetbag like this one!
