We are planning a trip in a little over a week. Here's the stash I plan to take:<br><br>
18 fitteds<br>
12 pocket dipes<br>
2 wool covers<br>
1 fleece cover<br>
1 PUL cover<br><br>
I'm concerned about compression wicking in the car, so I'll either use PUL, pockets or (gasp) sposies on the way there and back. We'll be in New Orleans, so I want to use wool when we are out and about...we're planning a trip to the zoo or something like that. I may opt to use the fleece cover only in emergencies, because it wicks worse of all and seems to be hotter than the wool. Do I need a new wool cover? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> My favorite sugarpeas merino jersey cover just blew a snap, so I'm down one, and may need to replace it.<br><br>
What is a good large and inexpensive wet bag.<br><br>
Anything else I should consider?

I like the cheap pull on nylon covers from Babies R Us for car trips. They're great for when dd is not going to be moving around much. They come two in a package for $3.99.

I have a medium bummis wetbag that works well for in the car, I would also suggest getting a size Large one-- we need a bigger one I know when we travel than what we have. The medium is good for taking in a store to fit more than one diaper in.

I am heading out in a week as well, and am just trying not to think too much about it. I know I need wet bags and a big pail liner but I don't want to spend the money when I only need it for vacation. If I had planned ahead a little I could probably have borrowed one... oh well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I second the BRU pull on covers. They were great for us, we went on vacation recently. I also used the wool liners on the car trip, under the usual doubler, and those were fabulous as well. We didn't have any compression issues! I was so happy, and it was great to be able to use cloth (we were gone for 8 days). MIL (who is VERY against cloth) was very surprised at how easy it was for us, and no leaks! Yay!<br><br>
Bring some baking soda, I tossed a little in my pail liner each day, and there was no smell. I did laundry one time while we were away. Needless to say, I had lots to wash when we got home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
And you don't have to have a wet bag, it does help, but you can use a large plastic bag, or one of those bags from walmart that everyone talks about. It can be done! And I think you will be happier if your baby is in cloth, than the smelly DDs!<br><br>
Good luck!

We have nothing but leaks with PUL so I wouldn't use that. I have a Fuzbomb I was going to sell but now that you started this thread, I think I'll keep it just for travelling. That with a night-time diaper would work great, IMO.

Oh yes! I did that. I had little disposable plastic containers that I put one load's worth of detergent in. Then I just dumped it in and threw the container away. Worked great!<br><br>
As for the diaper pail, when we drove somewhere, I took my own. When I flew to my parents, I just used an old 5 gallon paint bucket they had.
