How do people use cloth diapers when traveling?

With the invention of wetbags, traveling with cloth diapers is no longer a challenge. In fact, your friends and relatives might appreciate wet and soiled diapers going home with you instead of being left in their homes.

 Wet bags come in various sizes and closure systems. They are waterproof and help contain odors. When you get home you can wash your diapers as usual.

 Some people, however, choose to use gDiapers when going on longer trips, especially those involving plane travel. These diapers are a mix between cloth and disposables. The center insert that is against the skin is flushable, and it's compostable if just wet. Behind the center insert is a waterproof shell. The outside of the diaper is a cloth pant with velcro closure in the back. This way you are still using some cloth, but are only buying inserts instead of a complete diaper that will be thrown away and is not biodegradable.

 Cloth diapers have come a long way and traveling with ease is another example of that.
