Have Diapers, Will Travel! How to go away for the weekend with your Cloth diapers.

Sharing is caring!

My in-laws live a few hours away and every few weeks we head up to see them. I ,being the die hard cloth diaper enthusiast that I am was worried about these trips because sure I can go out for a few hours with my diapers but days? No way! Thankfully though, I’ve devised a system to help get through my weekend trips without having to resort to disposable diapers for 4.0.

If you go to any store like Marshalls or TJ Maxx you will find these neat storage containers to put away any kind of trinket you would like in the house. Mine came with some great handles and is big enough to fit approx. 36 diapers. It cost me about 12.99 so it was priced just right.

I use two types of wet bags when I travel. A Large and Medium size and sometimes a small.

The large one is used to place all the dirty diapers when being used. The Medium is the one I use to store the wipes.

I assemble all of the diapers in the box and I include the wet bags..we’re ready to go!

If I know I’m going to be gone a few more days to their house, I take with me a couple of pouches of Rockin Green travel size detergent.

Just because you go away for the weekend doesn’t mean you can’t use your diaper stash, I mean what fun would it be to Cloth diaper if we couldn’t show it off to everyone!

    You're very welcome. I bought a 5 gallon bucket at Home Depot to use with it. Also, the handle is short on this plunger so I plan to take it with me to the hardware store and buy a longer handle like a broom handle, so I don't have to bend down and bother my back. Best gadget I have bought in a long time!

    Love that tote thanks for the idea! I go to my inlaws for weekend trips also and I have been able to do strictly cloth still but have to put all the clean diapers on the way up in a trashbag! So this idea is great!!!!

    This is great! If you camp for more than a couple of days you can take along a breathing hand washer and a 5 gallon bucket and use it to wash diapers, too. I bought my breathing hand washer from and I love it. Have you tried Molly’s Suds laundry powder? It is super eco-friendly and I use it on my family’s laundry.

    I originally bought mine as a backup in case we get a hurricane here in Florida, but I have used it a few times and my daughter loves to use it. It works really well. Nice thing to have on hand.

    I’m planning on traveling with cloth for a family reunion this summer. I love my fluff way too much not to use it… even if we will be in the woods for a few days!
