My diaper bag!
I was not yet in the market for a bag. I haven't even done my research. The diaper bag is a very important purchase so I am still a little nervous but kind of totally in love. While I was shopping with my baby sis we popped into the Kate Spade outlet and saw this beauty on sale and 40% off. How do you say no to that? Plus I have 30 days to return it which means I have 29 days to do my research and comparative shopping to make sure this is the right fit for us.
It is a cross-body bag (which is what I wanted) with 6 outside pockets, two for bottles and lots of practical storage inside. Aesthetically I really like the bag. It looks like an adult bag that I could use as a purse. A simple pattern that is also complex enough to hide the dirt. But I know that it is not just about how the bag looks but how it works.
The bag came with your standard changing pad in red, the same color as the interior.
The inside has several small pockets of various shapes and sizes on the inside and one large zipper pocket separating the interior into two sections, which I like. I have a purse with this feature and find it helps me stay organized. Hopefully it will be the same way with a diaper bag but I guess I won't really now how I use my diaper bag until Baby K gets here. That is what makes diaper bag shopping so hard. No matter how much research I do I can't be confident of what I want now.
So help me. What diaper bag do you have? What features do you love and what features do you hate? The other bags I have been looking at are Petunia Pickle, JJ Cole, Dwell, Oi Oi.......any input?
Thanks ladies, you're the best!!
