Sizzling Review + Giveaway: JAMTOTS WET BAG

Sizzling Summer Logo

We’re all going green. Hurray for our wallets and our earth. But in some cases, this also presents us with a problem! I don’t know about you but I always used plastic grocery bags to carry home wet swim suits from the beach or pool. With my fabulous re-useable bags, the plastic bags are no longer plentiful and I find myself at a loss…

I mentioned earlier that in participation of Set for a Sizzling Summer Series, Ottawa Cloth Diapers kindly sent me a JamTots Wet Bag to review.

The product details are here.

For Diapers: I think it was originally designed for dirty cloth diapers while out and about. I used it for this purpose and it worked great. It held two soiled BumGenius diapers easily. It would have accommodated more however that was all that John soiled :) With the water-resistant lining, it did a great job of keeping the smell contained which is important since I don’t really want to walk around smelling…ummm, well you know!

For Wipes: I’ve recently started using cloth wipes. I’ll be sharing what I have learned so far in a future post next month. Though I am still using disposable wipes when we go out, I am in the process of changing that. I think this would be an ideal bag for taking moist cloth wipes out with me for quick wipes of sticky faces & hands or for bottom changes! I haven’t done this yet but I’ll come back and let you know how it works out for me.

Laundry Bag: Often I am out and about (at mom’s etc.) and one of my littles needs to change clothes. This bag also makes for a great laundry sack. Now the bag isn’t huge so for older children this wouldn’t work but because my little ones are small still, it works perfectly for me. I love the way the bag snaps onto itself around the strap of my diaper bag because many times there isn’t enough room in my diaper bag for a bag of laundry.

Swim Suits: And of course, the reason that this product is featured in our Sizzling Summer Series is because it is the perfect swim suit bag. I can fit Chloe’s (2), John’s (10 months), Scott’s and my bathing suits all in this bag. There is still some room but I wouldn’t want to strain the zipper. Larger families may need to invest in two bags. Just toss the suits in and then snap it onto your bag. No worries about getting anything else wet!

Colors that Match! It really is a cool bag with many uses. It comes in a fabulous array of colors. Ottawa Cloth Diapers was kind enough to send me one in ladybug (pictured above). I was VERY excited about this since my stroller is the same color. My diaper bag is black and has a little red tag on it so it matches that too. (I got my very cool diaper bag off kijiji). The only reason that I mention it matching is because most of the times that I have used the wet bag, I have taken advantage of the snap feature and attached it to either my stroller or my diaper bag for easy carrying. It’s nice when things match isn’t it?

  5. So cute! I have some old plastic zipper bags that I use as wetbags when we're out and about, but I would LOVE a real one. Hmm, I think we'd like the honeydew color the best. Thanks for the chance!

  23. Well I personally like the Robin's Egg, but would probably actually buy a froggy. Robins egg is my favorite color, but we have a cool camo pattern diaper bag, froggy would probably match better, but I have a son so...
