My baby is 5 months old. When I was pregnant I bought a regular/standard diaper bag, with winnie the pooh on it, from a department store. At the time I just thought, "oh its so cute for a baby!". That diaper bag is big, but with hardly any pockets. I've quickly realized that I needed something better. My main goal when setting out to shop for a new diaper bag was that I wanted something that could double as my purse, so that when we go out I do not need to bring the diaper bag AND the purse. I have 3 kids in all, so the less I have to bring the better!
When I opened my package today I was pleasantly surprised at the size of this bag! I wanted something smaller then the diaper bag I have. When we go out I bring: change of clothes for my baby, 5-6 diapers, wipes, 2-3 burp cloths, a couple bibs, 2 bottles, can of formula, and his jared food if we'll be gone near mealtimes. Also: a couple of toys and his "bankey". We don't bring a ton of stuff, so when I was debating between this bag and the bigger, more expensive skip hop bag (the 80-90 dollar one), I chose this one as I wanted one that was smaller, but (hopefully not) too small. Being too small was the only thing I was nervous about when I ordered this bag. When I opened the package I was very impressed that it was actually bigger then I was expecting! Not too big/huge, but not so small and compact that you can't put hardly anything in it. To test it out, I filled it with all of what I listed above and it fits great! It also has pockets for mom stuff - In addition to the baby items I was able to add my wallet, keys, cell phone, lip gloss, pen, and my Kindle and could certainly fit more if needed. Inside one of the pockets in the front of the bag is a clip for hooking a set of keys too - very nice extra touch. everything is so much more organized! I've seen people complain about the magnetic closure- by Idk why?! There is two rows of metal discs....if the bag is fuller, you use the one closer to the top of the flat - and its stays shut very securely.
I also tested out the clips to hook this bag to our stroller. We have a Graco snugride infant seat/stroller travel system. Hooking this to the stroller was so easy, and still does not get in the way of the handle bar. I absolutely love this feature! Also, the should strap has a very nice and comfortable pad on it and the strap is adjustable. The material the bag is made out of seems very durable and of much better quality then cheaper/other bags out there. Oh, and the bag includes a changing pad that folds up/and velcros shut.
Overall, I am absolutely THRILLED with this purchase. I looked here on amazon for what seemed like hours before finally choosing a bag and I am very, very happy with it. I'm already very happy with this and have not even really used it yet. I will def. be recommending this bag/company to others.
