When my son was born, I remember having a diaper bag that was 1990's old school; the wipe clean plastic/vinyl kind. It matched my nursery theme which was Baby Looney Tunes. There were cute little characters on it and it had a few pockets inside. I liked it but I always wished that I could have a bag that was a little more "girly."
Now that I have a little girl, I ended up with a backpack diaper bag that is black. It isn't "girly" either. But I wanted to spare my hubby from having to carry around something pink and purse-like. So I gave up my wish for cute and stylish and went with functional. I was okay with that choice. I just drooled over other mama's bags when I saw them at the pediatrician's office or at the store.
My wish for something pretty and functional came true recently. This beauty was delivered to my door from Miss Lucy's Monograms. And I have to say, I am in LOVE with this diaper bag!
This is the Hot Pink with Lime Quilted 3 Pc Diaper/Purse/Tote Bag. It comes with the bag, accessory pouch, and matching changing pad. You can choose your monogram for the bag and the accessory pouch. I chose the Single Circle Initial in Boingo Font with Black/Lime Green thread. I love how the colors pop!
This has a quilted cotton fabric, 3 front pockets, 1 back zipper pocket, a zip top closure, has 3 inside pockets, and is fully lined in check fabric. The pouch is removable with a zipper closure. The changing pad is pretty standard and color coordinates with the bag and pouch. There are little metal feet on the bottom so you can stand it up. (It is recommended that you Scotch Guard your bag and spot clean, so I am going to be very careful with any food items I place in it)
This is a great size because I can put a change of clothes, several diapers, a wipe case, my keys, wallet, toys, and some snacks in addition to the pad and accessory pouch. It's great for shopping trips, dr.'s appointments, and play dates. And when I don't want to use it as a diaper bag, I can remove all of the munchkin accessories and it can be just a "ME" bag.
(I'll still use the backpack when hubby has to carry it around, I know he'll appreciate that)
The 3 front pockets are about as deep as the size of my hand. These are great for little items like hand sanitizer, bandaids or whatever items you might need to grab quickly. The accessory pouch can be used for many things like make-up or jewelry. And the back zipper pocket is deep enough to fit your cell phone if you'd like it zippered up but easy to access. So many great features on this bag!
With Mother's Day coming up, wouldn't this make a great gift? I think I'll be adding my other favorite styles to my wish list. (Honey, are you reading this?)
