Okay, folks, real-talk time. As much as we all love our kids and want to do the very best we can for them- this whole parenting thing… well, it is not for the faint of heart.
When it comes to raising children, it seems like most of us are figuring it out as we go. And sometimes it shows.
I think it is safe to say that a lot of us spend more days than we would like to admit just trying to keep our heads above the sea of toys, laundry, and fossilized Cheerio crumbs that have seemingly engulfed our homes.
You drink your morning coffee (or tea, or wine… we don’t judge).
You try to decide if you can get away with wearing that shirt one more time this week (probably not).
You wonder if today is going to be the day that you finally feel like you have a handle on rearing tiny humans (also, probably not).
There are exceptions to every rule, however. Unfortunately this one is no different.
This exception’s name is Stacey and she has got this parenting thing completely figured out.
Stacey’s hair, makeup, and wardrobe are always perfect, while you are trying to remember the last time your yoga pants made it into the washing machine.
She has two toddlers and a newborn, but still manages to run a wildly successful Etsy shop. She shows up to playdates with warm scones, leaving you to wonder when she has time to pee.
Perhaps the odor of lavender and sandalwood that seems to emanate from her very pores is the only waste her body produces, meaning she doesn’t need to use the facilities like the rest of us.
Her perfectly behaved offspring sleep 14 hours a night. This means Stacey shows up to all events looking like she slept on a bed lined with unicorn hair and rainbows.
Meanwhile, the shrieking banshee you brought into the world was awake every 20 minutes through the night and you are struggling to keep it together.
Essentially, Stacey leaves you in a state of awe. She makes you question how your children are possibly going to survive to adulthood with you in charge.
If all of this wasn’t enough to make you rage with jealousy, Stacey’s baby gear game is also on point. One of my secret mom jealousies has always been 'sposie moms, with their cute little diaper clutches.
Stacey is the queen of these and can head for a diaper change without having to take her whole bag with her. I know we all love our fluff, but the bulk can leave you lugging a lot of crap around (literally).
Well, no longer my friends!
Enter the Lil Helper Dry/Wetbag. Packed with with all kinds of awesome features, it will make you seem like you have it all together even on your worst day.
2 Bags in 1: This bad boy packs a double punch. It has a smaller compartment for dry stuff, and a larger one for wet. This gives you double the chances of leaving the house without completely forgetting something essential to your journey.
Holds 6 Diapers: The small side of the wetbag is designed to hold 6 diapers and the larger side holds even more. This means you can store all of your essentials in one place that has been designed to contain the mountain of mess your child is capable of producing on even a “quick” run to the store.
Less Leaks: The wet side is specially constructed to prevent leaks. This means you can throw anything you want in there without worrying, creating the illusion that you are not carrying a bag full of poop and other assorted grossness.
Double Stitched on the inside: Constructed like a waterproof tank, this bag can handle anything you throw at it. Wet diapers? No problem. Toddler decided to jump in the fountain at the mall? You’re covered. Some genius parent decided to give away live goldfish as birthday party favors? This is probably where you should draw the line, but the bag wouldn’t leak.
Snappable Loop: Use the loop to attach it to your diaper bag or make it hangable. Nothing says, “I’ve got this” like taking the task of lugging your child’s stuff around and making it magically hands-free.
Take it to the beach: Excellent to use for a day on the beach or at the pool. No more using a sad, old grocery bag. This much cuter, reusable option is a great place to store wet bathing suits and the metric tonne of sand that inevitably need to come home with you after a day at the lake.
All the uses!: This bag will change your life. It has enough room to fit a whole day’s worth of diapers, true, but for shorter outings you can rock it like a diaper clutch. Load it with all your changing essentials. Wipes, a change pad, and of course adorable diapers and awesome liners. Plus, no need to grab an extra wet bag, because it is built right in.
Freaking Adorable: Not only are the dry/wetbags super functional, they come in a range of super awesome colours and prints that will brighten your day and make your poopcatchers and other messy articles look as stylish as Stacey and her kids.
At Lil Helper we know that not everyone has it in them to be a Stacey, but using well designed products like our Dry/Wetbag will make you feel like you are. Even if your scones are store-bought and your shirt is a little funky.
Here is my story about why you should just only buy Lil Helper zippered wet bags. So i had a major mom brain moment when i was cleaning my basement in preparation for guests to arrive at our place. I had 2 wet bags sitting next to my laundry machine full of diapers, one from Lil Helpers and one from Amazon from before i knew better. So in my haste to clean (they arrived early to my devastation) i chucked them in an empty bin. Fast forward 2 weeks later and i find them and start preemptively morning what has to be 2 dozen covers and insert sets.
Here is the point of my story when i was dismantling the bags in the hope to save even a few diapers i discovered the ones in the lil helpers bag were fine. The stains have set (but I'm a carpet cleaner by trade so i can eventually fix that) but they are clean. The other bags diapers which were eventually also fine had an odor that made me (and i should point out I've smelt allot of foul, disgusting, biological, gag worthy but i hold my professionalism and don't gag kind of odors being a carpet cleaner) the diapers stained much worse and i had some mold spots that i got out. So from now on i am only gonna use my lil helper wet bags and reserve the cheapos for other uses.
Thanks for making such a good product and im so glad to be an ambassador for you cause you just proved why more than ever Caitlan on 7th Nov 2019
I had bought 2 of these bags for my DDs daycare use and so far it has been a great addition. Easy to use and wash. Keeps all the wetness and smell contained. The designs are also so beautiful. Ann Nepomuceno on 6th Nov 2019
I use it for daycare or day trips out. Works great and fun patterns! Unknown on 3rd Sep 2019
I bought it as a present so I can't speak to it's effectiveness. It's super cute and seems to be constructed well. It came quickly! Unknown on 28th Aug 2019
I started out with wet bags, and thought they were the bee's knee. Then I learned there were Dry/Wet bags.. And let me tell you, they are the bee's knees, his legs and his arms!
Perfect for containing daytrip diapers, clean/dirty changes of clothes, swim bags.. I keep finding new uses for these things. They will be a part of my essentials long after my little one has graduated from cloth diapers all together.
They are a MUST HAVE for any diaper bag. A true mom essential! Jessica Dalrymple on 29th Jul 2019
The wet/dry bag is awesome for in the diaper bag. I have no concerns about anything leaking out into the rest of the diaper bag.
I couldn't do cloth diapering without these!
Super handy. Unknown on 29th Jun 2019
I was going to go with a different dry/wet bag that was cheaper but instead went with LilHelper. And I'm so glad I did. The size is perfect for what I need and I love that I don't need two separate bags to lug around PLUS the designs are super cute. Judith on 27th May 2019
SO AWESOME! will not go back to my 'wet only' bags. This makes packing so easy, clean in the dry section, dirty in the wet. We travel a lot as well to family out of town and this is a necessity for cloth diapering on the road! Unknown on 15th Apr 2019
This beautiful bag held all my wet diapers until I was able to get home. I also love the idea when baby is older I can reuse it as a swim bag, and being such good quality I know it will last. Samantha Block on 26th Mar 2019
This wet/dry bag is the bees knees! My daughter is in daycare full time and we use one of these bags daily for her cloth diapers. When I pick her up at the end of the day, no wetness has leaked out of the bag, and dry items in the second compartment are still dry.
We are now working on potty training, and this bag has been a life saver. Dry clothes go in 1 section, and when she has an accident, dirty/wet clothes go in the other section and again...NO cross contamination.
This bag is also used when we go swimming as it easily fits swim diapers, towel, bathing suit etc.
This is a must have product for every parent (regardless of whether they cloth diaper or not). Ashley E on 26th Mar 2019
This bag has a ton of uses and holds up extremely well! From diapers, to swimming lessons, to potty training, to extra clothes for kindergarten this bag can do it all! Unknown on 22nd Mar 2019
I got this in the gnome print. My first thoughts - "wow this is cute!" The soft yellow and grey are really lovely. Lots of cute details in the print. But it's also useful - having two zipper pockets means you can bring along clean diapers/clothing and then store the dirty stuff separately but in the same bag. It would easily hang for at home use as well. I'm really pleased with this bag and will likely order another. Leila on 14th Mar 2019
We love our wet/dry bag! Only thing ... I wish the zippers had bigger pulls! Sometimes when you're trying to keep babe still and pack a wet diaper in and wipe and grab a dry one all at the same time, those tiny little zippers are just a little too elusive ;) Rachel V. on 1st Mar 2019
Gets us through swimming lessons, day trips, grandparent visits and so much more! Like a bottomless magical sack. I want another one! Unknown on 12th Jan 2019
No shame, this has become my new purse when I am out with my son. Unless we are flying, we have stopped using our actual diaper bag and use our space dino wet/dry bag. It conveniently holds spare diapers, a bottle of milk, change of clothes, a small change mat, my phone and wallet, and some extras. We used this on our beach vacation, to the pool, and I imagine we'll be getting many more good uses out of this. A must buy for everyone, regardless of whether or not you use cloth diapers. Unknown on 8th Jan 2019
This bag is such a good size! It's perfect when we go out for the day as it truly does hold a day's worth of diapers for our 4 month old.
We also use it everyday for convenient dirty diaper storage at our change table.
It does take a little longer to dry than our other bags but the size is so helpful that I'm here to buy a second one! So if you do plan to use it everyday and wash it when you wash your diapers, get 2! Casey Michael on 18th Nov 2018
I use this bag for everything!! This bag is great for going to the pool or splash pad. I especially love using this bag for on the go with my toddler- holds diapers, clothes, sunscreen, snack, and toys well without being too big! Unknown on 27th Aug 2018
This bag has been a lifesaver. I don't have to worry anymore about whether there's enough room in the bag for diaper changes while we are out and I don't have to go rooting through a separate bag to grab clean diapers anymore either. Plus, dinos in space is such a great print! I may 'need' to order a different print on my next order too :) Lindsey on 22nd Aug 2018
I ordered the space Dino’s wetbag and am SOOO pleased with the purchase. My husband hates carrying around a diaper bag so he has been using the wetbag instead it is big enough to hold all our summer essentials. I’ve also loaded it with diapers, cloth wipes , swimsuits, baby towels etc. And I have had no LEAKS! Honestly it’s the best and CUTEST wet bag I’ve ever used. Rachel on 12th Jul 2018
We replaced our son’s daycare bag with this as soon as it was released and are so happy! We easily fit 6-7 diapers and an outfit in the dry portion. There are no leaks from the dirty side which is a huge bonus! Our daycare ladies love it and it makes packing so much easier and keeps the clean and dirty separate at the end of the day. I can’t wait to get more use out of ours (we ordered two!) with the pool, beach, and day to day life this summer! Kelly on 26th Jun 2018
