Traveling With Cloth Diapers

August 2, 2008

Cloth Diaper Extras

I’m currently at my in-laws house in a tiny Texas town. As I was packing this morning I didn’t blink an eye at whether or not we’d be traveling with cloth. I packed my storage bin with all our cloth diapers and the container of cloth wipes and loaded up the van.

My in-laws have a washing machine which means I can do laundry while here. But, as long as I have enough diapers I’ll most likely wait it out.

When you are visiting someone’s house and are unsure if they would allow you to wash cloth diapers ASK THEM! It is certainly not necessary to use disposables just because you are traveling.

Of course don’t forget your wet bag! My favorite wet bag is Leslie’s Boutique Wet Bags. I’ve never had a leak and that’s with stuffing it full and leaving it to sit for a couple of days. Leslie has an amazing selection of designer fabrics and the bags are flawless.

Don’t forget to check out Leslie’s seconds page for some amazing deals on minor flawed wetbags!

    Hi Autumn,
    Sometime when we are travelling, we had to sleep at the hotel, about every hotel/motel had landromat at their place, so why use disposable diapers even at the hotel ??.
    I even see an hotel where there is no washing machine where we can’t wash diapers to offer us to wash them with their laundry … the girl at the hotel desk was using cloth diapers too …

    It is very easy traveling. We go camping a lot and have had no problems. I use the gaint Zip lock bag to store used diapers. We have two babies in cloth diapers, which is a lot of diapers after a long weekend.

    This works if you’re driving but not if you’re flying anywhere. Especially with the new baggage restrictions.

    Just getting ready for my own trip and was doing the debate….really wanted to use cloth, and plan on it, but of course making sure I can wash while there, I think I’ll be a day short of dipes to be able to skip washing. Love my Leslie’s Boutique wet bag…need the large!
