Well I am a lucky girl – I have been testing one of the fabulous Monkey Foot Design Wet Bags for the lovely Vicki at the Bespoke Baby Room.
Bespoke Baby Room (formally known as Nappy Wardrobe) is a wonderful, bright and beautiful website that sells a great range of gorgeous and practical goodies for mums and babies. From the hugely practical and lush Bundled Chenille Washable Wipes (I’ll be reviewing those later!) to the delicious looking Gwdihw Baby Balms from Wales, Bespoke Baby Room sources many of its delightful products from small or UK businesses, which lets face it, aids to guilt-free retail therapy (my favourite kind)!

Monkey Foot Design Wet Bags are a fantastically practical addition to any baby changing bag. Not only do they come in the most wonderful array of stylish designs (I drool over the delicious range of unusual and colourful patterns – the hardest thing is definitely choosing!), they are beautifully made and fabulously functional – you can tell a Mum designed these!!!
Nobody wants to use plastic bags to contain soiled reusable nappies when out and about – where is the sense in that! So of course you have two main options, use a biodegradable bag, or a washable, reusable one, and with the gorgeous Monkey Foot Wet Bags available, I definitely choose the latter!
Monkey Foot Wet Bags come in a range of sizes which make them hugely versitile, from stashing nappies and wipes, to make-up or smelly gym shoes! I tested the small wet bag in the “April Shower” design which was actually more spacious than I would have thought. It easily accommodated one very smelly Bitti D’lish (Large), plus wipes, when we were out at baby group, and stored them safe and smell free in my bag until we got home – result! Brilliantly, you can simply throw the wet bag in with the wash and it comes up brilliantly if soiled, or, you can just turn out the inside to air or wipe clean. If you are wanting the wet bag for using as a nappy bag, I would recommend (as does Monkey Foot Designs) to use the Medium size which will have plenty of room for two nappies plus wipes but I do think the small is a really useful for short trips, or would make a great make-up bag.
The Monkey Foot Bags are really well made – great care has been taken to ensure that the seams remain tightly sealed to prevent any odour leaks and the zip is strong and sturdy. Another feature that I love, is the handle which has a popper closing, this means that you can loop it round your buggy handle bar, changing station or high-chair – very handy!
I am so pleased with the Monkey Foot Wet Bag, I think it is a fantastic addition to any changing bag and I can imagine, for those with bigger kids, a brilliant solution for carrying gym kits in school bags or lotions and potions for the swimming pool or holidays. This would make such a great present too – a really thoughtful and useful gift for any new mum, and you can be sure to find a design to suit any taste.
I will definitely be choosing at least one more Monkey Foot wet bag in another size, to accommodate longer trips and larger nappy bundles. I only have one issue……which delectable design do I choose!!!
