Super easily! We recommend using a damp washcloth and dishsoap to clean up non-staining soiled spots from the exterior and interior of your Kibou. Try not to submerge your changing pad in water as this can damage the fluff of the foam inside.
Cleaning up a more intense mess? You can use disinfecting wipes gently over the soiled areas. We recommend not using heavy disinfecting chemicals or harsh abrasive wipes frequently as it can damage the unique properties that protect your vegan leather from day-to-day wear and tear. Be gentle with your kibou when cleaning to get the most life out of your bag.
This question depends on many factors including type of wipes, manner of inserting them in the pocket, the zipper remaining closed and your geographic location (altitude, humidity and temperature)! Phew, we’re exhausted by that answer too.
The short answer is from ~3 days to over a week, depending on all of the above.
A. We recommend placing a stack that remains folded from its original packaging (rather than pulling out and inserting individual wipes). The stack helps to hold in the moisture, and you’re able to pull them out one at a time like you do with your wipes dispenser at home.
B. Ensure that your zipper is always zipped all the way shut.
C. Avoid keeping your Kibou in hot, dry places
D. If you have a moment before you head out, unzip your wipes pocket and check to see that your wipes are still moist. If they have dried out, consider adding a few drops of water to the stack and reinserting them. This way you avoid waste and you’ve rewet the wipes for when you need them next!
With a belt that extends from 33”-49”, Kibou currently fits waist sizes XS-L. Being size inclusive matters to us, and we are 100% committed to expanding our size inclusion from 3XS-4XL by 2022.

Using Your Kibou
Great question! This depends on the size of your diapers and your bottle or other core items you’re hoping to bring along. Are you a wallet person? If so, that may take up some valuable real estate in the main pocket.
In general, you will always have your wipes pocket available for wipes, and the built-in, detachable changing pad (unless you’re no longer using one), your keys, and space for cash, cards and your phone in the front.
The main pocket can fit 1-2 diapers of any size, car/house keys, a couple of snacks OR a baby bottle and a small diaper cream or hand sanitizer. If you’ll only need 1 diaper or you aren’t using a bottle, there is space for sunscreen or bug spray, a small toy, and extra masks or a spare pair outfit change for your little one.
Remove your changing pad, and you’ll have extra space in the main pocket and in the back flap--a great spot to stash your Bou-Boo Bag or passports when traveling!
YES! Of course, not all bottles are shaped the same or hold the same amount of milk, so this is somewhat dependent on your bottle. That said, Kibou isn’t designed to hold everything, just a small number of essentials; so if you require space for a bottle, you’ll likely need to limit yourself to one diaper or hold off on other snacks or ointments.
Customers report using: Dr Browns, Como Tomo, PopYum, EvenFlo, and ThinkBaby (without the side handles) among others.
