When we first started cloth diapering, we would take disposables with us when we were on the go and didn’t even want to think about leaving home with cloth diapers.
After a month of cloth diapering at home, I purchased a wet bag to store the soiled diapers in while we were away from home.
The only extra things you need to cloth diaper on the go are a wet bag and a wipes container. We use a disposable wipes container to hold our cloth wipes and a medium wet bag .
When I’m getting ready to leave the house, I put several wipes into the wipes container and grab diapers and a wet bag.
I tuck the diapers, wipes and wet bag into our diaper bag and we’re ready to go. The diaper bag also contains my personal items (wallet, keys, cellphone) in the flower print bag, an extra bodysuit for Weston and a muslin blanket which I use as a nursing cover. I also have stashed a burp cloth and 2 bibs in the outside pockets!
Cloth diapers take up more room in a diaper bag than disposables but if you try to pack lightly, it shouldn’t make that much of a difference. I can easily fit up to 4 cloth diapers in my diaper bag. The boys also have small backpacks that I send to church which hold 2 diapers, a wet bag and wipes as well as extra clothes and a sippy or bottle.
Changing cloth diapers while away from home is easy thanks to the wet bag. I simply place the soiled diaper into the wet bag and put the wet bag back into the diaper bag.
I typically change the boys in the car so I don’t attempt to dump solids, I just place the entire diaper in the wet bag. If I change the diaper in a restroom, I will dump any solids.
When I get back home, I take the diapers out of the wet bag and put them in the diaper diaper pail.
Cloth diapering away from home really is easy!
