Wet Bags Galore! (WAHM Review + Giveaway) *CLOSED*

Who doesn't love wet bags?  It seems like we can never have enough.  Especially now that we are using more reusable items.  

We originally had 3 travel size wet bags for our cloth diapers that we used in the diaper bag.  Plus two hanging wet bags for our bathroom and two pail liners.  I was putting my facial rounds and nursing pads in with my diapers but thought it might be nice to have something smaller.

I received free product in exchange for an open & honest review.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.
  
Kara, after having her bundle of joy, discovered that there wasn't a lot of baby stuff out there to her liking.  So, instead of settling for something sub par, she decided to venture out and start making her own items.  With a love of crafting that she inherited from her great aunt, Kara went to work and made the bedding for her daughter's crib.  After some encouragement from people in her life, Kara decided to start selling the stuff she was making - a perfect opportunity to make some extra income while staying home with her baby girl (Birdie)!

Here is a pic of her and her beautiful family:


Absolutely adorable family aren't they?

This is the package I received from Kara:

I was instantly in love with the colors when I opened the tissue paper!  And overjoyed to see a note - I love those personal touches!
Kara sent me two wet bags and two sets of nursing pads (new to the shop).  We hadn't actually discussed what she was going to send, so when I opened this I was super excited.  I needed small wet bags and at least another set of nursing pads!  She has no idea how perfect this was!  :)

Cute flannel prints!  I absolutely love the monkeys - they are so cute!  (Even if no one will be seeing them....)

And the back is organic bamboo (love!) with a waterproof layer between.
These nursing pads are "light absorbency" and they worked splendidly for me throughout the day.  I could easily go the entire day without having to change them and they are oh-so-soft against my skin...which is a serious plus when it comes to reusable nursing pads!  I did try them overnight a few times.  On a normal night for me, they worked pretty well...I would say medium leakage.  But on a night were Aelah decided to sleep for an extra long stretch, they didn't quite make the cut.  But that's okay - because Kara also has heavier absorbency nursing pads!  I guarantee the heavier pads would work out great for the first few weeks of nursing and for overnight since the light absorbency pads almost did the trick!

The best part??  These nursing pads are wonderfully affordable, especially for the quality!  Each set is just $3!!  Given that she uses organic bamboo and they stay soft and work well...that price is extremely reasonable!!

I love, love, love bright colors so these wet bags are right up my alley!  Each is pictured with a nursing pad in the 2nd pic to give you an idea of size.

These are made with two separate layers (instead of one) so there is less leakage (if any at all...)
The small wet bag is the one intended for use with her nursing pads.  It fits well in any purse or diaper bag.  And is super cute!  I actually use the smaller one for my reusable facial rounds in my bathroom (as seen in the pic below) and I threw the medium size wet bag in my diaper bag for nursing pads, burp cloths, and anything else that I don't want to throw in with dirty diapers.  ;)

Here is one in action!  Isn't Birdie adorable??

Kara's customer service was some of the best I have come across.  She has been so sweet from day 1!  She even gave me some great insight on dealing with colic....which has nothing to do with all of this.  hehe.

Be sure to follow Birdies Bubble on Facebook and add her to your favorites on Etsy.

    1. The medium bag would be awesome for wipes! Hadn't thought about that. But the small bag would probably also do well!
