Waterproof Wet Bags by Bumkins

I never knew about wet bags until I saw a friend using it. We were into cloth diapering (1st kid and all then) and I had been using plastic bags to store them. With plastic bags, we always had to check that they didn’t have holes, otherwise we would end up with a stinky diaper bag with rancid diluted pee juice.

Yucks!

It wasn’t much later when the kid was very much into water parks that I finally decided to “invest” in wet bags. It was a lifesaver. I never ever have to worry about liquids in the diaper bag. Just stuff wet swim suit, wet towel, wet everything into the wet bag and we’re set to go.

But apparently, that wasn’t the end of it.

One of the inner lining of our wet bag is made of PUL. And my experience with PUL lining hasn’t been really good. They separate from the fabric after extended wash and after extensive exposure to the sun. Totally not cool. Which led us to these wet bags from Bumkins.

Bumkins’ line of wet bags are made with their easy wipe waterproof fabric, which is both stain and odour resistant. A waterproof fabric means no lining, just one single piece of fabric. No worry about your wet bag separating into pieces. And it is flat. Beautifully flat, which means it doesn’t take up space in your diaper bag. It is just as good as having another piece of fabric in your bag.

The wet bags are heat sealed, meaning no visible stitches in the lining, and you don’t have to worry about liquid leaking through any seams or any zip snagging onto the seams.

Fret not, the Buds Cherished Organics uses the highest quality of ingredients (in this case, Inca Inchi oil), and it is fragrance free so it does not upset your baby’s delicate taste buds! Perfect for protecting those precious moist lips for kissing.

Shield your baby’s perfect lips with our healing and nourishing Pukka Pucker Lip Balm by Buds Cherished Organics.

Sunscreen for Kids

Did you know that you actually do need sunscreen even if it is going to be cloudy and rainy? Seriously, I would have thought all that cloud would block out some UV rays, no? That was until I read about this: “Do I need sunscreen on a day with extreme UV levels if it’s cloudy?”

Well, just in case you decide that you need some totally awesome organic sunscreen, I’ve got one for you. Have I tried it? Of course! The kids get some too. We used it for our staycation earlier this week and the kids gets pretty water-logged when we go on a staycation. We used the Little Innoscents Sun Lotion. What I liked about this one is it doesn’t smell like any other sunscreen, it is fragrance free. It doesn’t leave that white film over the skin. And it rubs in really well. This sun lotion contains calendula, aloe vera and Vitamin E, so your skin remains hydrated whilst being protected.

But wait, there’s more. We also tried the Buds Organics Solar Care Lotion. It had a light floral scent, and rubbed in really well too! This would be for mothers who prefer titanium dioxide over zinc oxide because the Buds Solar Care Lotion uses titanium dioxide as it’s active ingredient! I am one happy mummy.
