The Wet Suit Dilemma

Bugaboo Girl has been going to swim classes with me since she was 6 months old. She loves the water and I am constantly scouting for new bathing suits all seasons of the year! My biggest dilemma is packing everything in a bag for both her and me to get changed at the YMCA. I was using a plastic bag to throw our suits in after being in the pool. Not always the best way to deal with a wet suit in a diaper bag. One night scouting around Etsy I found a Monkey Foot Designs, a small WAHM mom who has come up with a bag that solves my problem!



Kris is the designer of the Wet Bag. What is a wet bag? It is a bag that you can not only use for a wet bathing suit but also for diapers, gym clothes or anything you want to keep contained from anything else! The bags have a ProCare inner lining which is machine washable, dryable and has a high protective barrier often used is medical and diaper products. So it keeps that wet suit contained in her bag instead of leaking in your bag! Wow, why didn't I think of that! The wet bag has a very strong zipper with a 12" long snap strap perfect for hanging off of another bag or a stroller. I love the fact I have more room inside my diaper bag by not having to put my wet suit in it and worry about it leaking.

Monkey Foot Designs definitely has attention to detail with all of the seams sealed in the wet bag and her choice of cotton fabrics are beautiful! The prices are right on the money for such a quality handmade piece with the small 9x11 bags starting at $16! This would be a wonderful shower gift, unique and guarantee no one will duplicate this one!!!

Love the happy Kaufman Frogs! We are just at the beginning of our "swim journey." But I plan to continue - these bags seem like a great idea!

So much better than leaky shopping bags! I like the Almond Sparrow print the best, but all of them were very cute.

This would actually be perfect for me! My 5 year old started swim lessons in Sept, and today her 3 year old sister begins joining her. It's such a pain to haul the one wet suit home weekly, so I can imagine it's not going to be any better now with a second wet suit and a wet swim diaper. Ugh. I'd love to win this giveaway for this reason alone. :)

Thanks for the entry.

I've been looking for a wet bag to hold my dirty cloth diapers when we're out and about. And these are so lovely and look well made. I like that they have zippers rather than a draw string like some of the others I've seen. I'd love to win the Joel Dewberry Chocolate Damask Fabric one.

Thanks Robin for another great find!
