Bummis Fabulous Wet Bag (Large)

Welcome to Part 4 of Mummy’s Reviews™’ Bummis Review SeriesTiny Pants provided me with a Bummis Large Fabulous Wet Bag to try out. It’s indeed large and fabulous, doubling up as a diaper pail liner!

About Bummis Large Fabulous Wet Bag

These are the main features of the wet bag:

  • Material: 1 layer of laminated polyester (same as Super Brite diaper cover), guaranteed lead, phthalate and BPA free
  • Closures: Pull-strings AND zipper
  • Dimensions: ~ 23″ x 23″ (58cm x 58cm)
  • Country of origin: Made in Montreal (Canada)

The Large Fabulous Wet Bag is EXCLUSIVE to Bummis Organic Cotton Diaper Kit. Small and medium Fabulous Wet Bags are available, featuring a snap-able handle and a zipper.

First Impressions

Bummis Fabulous Wet Bag (Large, Close-Up)

This is the LARGEST wet bag I have seen! I was totally blown over when I first opened it up. It fits nicely into my existing dry diaper pail, with ample excess fabric. I like the choice of closing it with either pull-strings or a zipper and was eager to test it out during our 1-week Perth trip, with an aim to cloth-diaper Vee as much as possible!

Moreover, it’s in the same familiar Bummis Super Brite print, which livens up Vee’s room.

How We Tested It

(a) Prewash & Laundry: As with any new laundry items, I handwashed it in cold water once before initial use. After that, it’s very easy to wash and dry after use. The laminate has withstood more than 2 months of regular use, and looks as good as new.

(b) Effectiveness: During our 1-week trip to Perth, my plan was to cloth-diaper Vee whenever possible, so we chose a service apartment with a washing machine and dryer. I hung the pull-strings on a door knob to use it as a hanging laundry bag. When doing so, it was difficult to use the zip, so I fastened the pull-strings each time after dumping a cloth diaper or soiled laundry in. It has a HUGE capacity and can hold 1-2 days’ worth of cloth diapers.

It’s very sturdy and is currently my preferred diaper pail liner.

(e) Overall value: There is NO price for this Large Fabulous Wet Bag because it’s available exclusively in Bummis Organic Cloth Diaper Kits. Being somewhat of a mathematical freak, I derived the value of the wet bag by taking the price of the diaper kit and subtracting the total value of all the other items in the kit.

Value of 1 Large Fabulous Wet Bag in:

  • Infant Diaper Kit: S$19.80 (what a steal!)
  • Baby Diaper Kit: S$42.50 (still reasonable, considering the bag is so big)
  • Infant & Baby Diaper Kits: S$16.65 (great to have 2 diaper pail liners to rotate!)

What we like about it:

  • Very generous size
  • Doubles up as a diaper pail liner
  • Option of using pull-strings or zipper to enclose it
  • Easy to wash and dry

What can be improved:

  • Offer it for individual sale!

My Opinion on Bummis Diaper Kits

Getting a Bummis Diaper Kit is a convenient way to have the complete diapering system in place — diaper covers, prefolds, liners and wet bag (cum diaper pail liner). Before Vee was born, I was shopping all over the place for the various items. The number of items included in each diaper kit is reasonable for starting a stash.

Personally, I prefer to have more Infant-sized than Baby-sized prefolds (because they’re slimmer and more versatile) and find diaper covers a MUST for my newborn baby. Most newborns don’t fit into one-size cloth diapers until they’re 5kg, about 2-3 months old. At the newborn stage, the prefold + diaper cover system is economical since soooo many diaper changes are needed. (FYI: Vee’s highest record was 11 poos in ONE day, right after the confinement lady left. I nearly freaked out!)

Conclusion: if I were to choose right at the start, the Infant Diaper Kit would attract me more.

    Hi MieVee,

    Very clear and detailed reviews on the Bummis products! As newborns poop really often during the first few weeks, I thought the only option was to use disposable diapers.

    The online form directs us to Google email sign in. Do we need to register an email account with mummysreviews.com in order to participate? I tried signing in with my personal gmail but to no avail.

    Kindly assist. Thanks.

      I had this same problem. Not able to open the spreadsheet since it says you need to sign in with another gmail id. But I have only 1 gmail id :(.

        Hi Rooma, thank you for your feedback. The form is now viewable by public and entries have been submitted, so do try again and best of luck! :)

      Hihi Joey, the form is viewable by public now. Thanks for the swift feedback so that I could resolve the issue asap. Have seen your submitted entry, good luck! :)

      Thank you for your kind words too. In the initial months, Vee really pooped a lot and I thought the only way was to use traditional cloth diapers + liner + diaper cover. He kept passing a little poo with gas and he was passing gas all day round. He’d have broken our bank if we used disposable, estimated at 15-20 a day?!? Haha… Anyway, I’m glad to fall in love with prefolds, will definitely use them on the next poopy newborn.
