Recommendations for small cheap wetbags?

My daycare is requiring each diaper be put in a separate bag due to state regulations. I assume they plan to put each one in a plastic bag. Is this typical for cloth diapering at daycare? I'm worried that someone will accidentally throw one of my diapers away. Also it sounds messy and wasteful to pull each diaper out each day and throw away a dirty bag.

I'm considering buying a set (8-12?) small wetbags, if daycare will agree to it, and if I can find some that are cheap. Can anyone recommend any small, inexpensive, obviously functional, wetbags to buy? I'd love it if they were also cute patterns! Thanks!

Re: Recommendations for small cheap wetbags?

diaper junction had a super cheap draw string wet bag. I got one free once because i purchased enough and its quality and really does work well. We used it in the diaper bag. They might only come in white.

You also could get a mama here or ebay to make you a set of PUL only bags with a pull string or zipper for one diaper each. I ended up going that route because I was given a great deal.

Our daycare does the same thing. They did put them in plastic until i got them. I never got one thrown out but one did end up with the other cloth baby once that was after I had the wet bags though.

Once they were all in individual wet bags, I brought in a mesh or cotton laundry bag to collect them all up in -- they no longer needed the larger wet bag.

I wish I realized this months ago; I could have had more time to bargain hunt or get someone to make me wetbags. Since DS starts daycare in less than two weeks, I'll probably be stuck with throwing away plastic bags until I figure this out.

Any specific recommendations for eBay or etsy wetbag makers?

Grovia has closeout wetbags on their site in 3-packs for $10. It looks like you could get six wetbags shipped for around $26 or nine shipped for around $40.

I would look on FSOT for small Planetwise wetbags. They are the perfect size for one diaper, easy to use because of the zipper (vs a drawstring which I hate) and really hold smells in well. When we use cloth out of the house, I have always preferred to take along diapers in individual small wetbags. It just makes it way easier!

I got a two pack of Kushies drawstring on Amazon for I think around $5. They are just the right size for one diaper...I can only fit two if I try really hard.

ETA: never mind they're $12 now

Still cheap on diapers.com last time I looked, but I don't know about the sizing.

We have one, I find them almost too small for one toddler sized diaper.

Search FSOT for imperfect wet bags... I think I posted a a request on the site somewhere asking if someone would do it and give me a quote. I got a few replies.

Wow. That's a really good deal! I think you should do this. Use plastic bags in the meantime....But, I doubt you will really get a better deal than this
