I love working with WAHMs! Work at home moms are usually enthusiastic and have a genuine love for both their product and what they are trying to do. I certainly can appreciate all the hard work and time it takes to create and maintain a successful small business.
Kristen Rickert is the mom behind 529baby. She has two kids, both cloth diapered as babies. Like any business, she started off small and now 5 years later has her own online store and plans to continue to expand.
I received the wet bags for the purpose of reviewing. However all statements here are my true and honest opinion.
I was excited to try 529baby’s wet bags! I was very happy with the quality right out of the package. The zipper was a good sturdy one with a nice sized pull (I can’t stand itty bitty zipper pulls!) The PUL used in the bags is also heat sealed to create a longer lasting and even more reliable wetness barrier.
I personally always look for something that’s a little different and ‘calls’ to me. She’s got a good selection of cute prints in all sizes of the wet bags. 529baby also sells wet bags with a dry pocket (to store clean items while out and about), bibs, kitchen and momma cloth wet bags and diaper pail liners.
So far I am pleased with the wet bags. I haven’t had to use them to cart around any poo diapers in public, but they do a good job of holding smells in at home. The zipper is also easy to open when you have your hands…full.
Fading is one of my pet peeves… Some fabric is so pretty, but then the minute you put it through the wash it looks 10 years old. Sad face…
Thankfully, I had no problems with that here! They washed and dried beautifully. You can machine dry wet bags, but I prefer to hang mine to dry. I feel like it helps the pul last a lot longer.
I probably sound like a broken record. But I really do love supporting made in the US/Canada products and I especially love supporting small business and WAHMs.
