I've talked about my struggle to keep things organized in my diaper bag, but now it's time to talk about the diaper bag. While I was pregnant I thought I had found the perfect bag. It was larger than most others I'd seen, had amble outside pockets seemed to hold everything at the time. Then we decided to use cloth diapers...
I needed a new diaper bag, desperately.
I stumbled upon Ore Originals on another blog while reading about their Weekender Bag. I contacted them, and they graciously offered me a tote bag to review! I received a SugarBooger Day Tripper in Dia de los Muertos. Now, the Day Tripper is not specifically designed to be used as a diaper
bag, but it's a versatile bag, and since any "day trips" I may take
involve hauling Bug's belongings, I chose to use it that way.
When I first pulled the bag out of the package, J's exact words were "You plan on moving Bug's diaper bags into that..." Yes, at first glance, the bag looked small. And yes, I was currently carrying around 2 diaper bags to hold everything I felt I needed.
Of course, we were both wrong. The Day Tripper gets it's space from having a 11.5" square bottom. Which tapers up to an 18" wide top. I will personally retract J's statement and tell you right now, that compared to any of my other bags, this one is huge! Not obnoxiously huge, but I can fit everything in here, and still zip it closed!
My favorite feature of this bag are the "sections" inside. I honestly think that having the inside of the bag more divided makes a world of difference in how you pack the bag, and how well everything fits.I pack bottles and food on the left, my wallet and personal items on the right, and diapers, clothing and miscellaneous in the main part of the bag.
This may not look like much, but this is everything I actually got in the bag, with some room to spare!
- 4- 8 ounce bottles
- 2- 4 ounce bottles
- One container of Gerber puffs
- 3 diapers
- 2 wet bags
- one pouch of reusable wipes
- one pack of disposable face wipes
- 3 toys
- my Diaper Bag Wrangler wet bag with diaper rash cream, paci and clip, sunscreen, pins and extra ponytails
- extra shirt and babylegs for Bug
- 2 burp rags
- baby food, spoon and bib
I don't use the key ring on the front, but I do keep my cell phone and keys in the front pocket. I thought I would miss my other outside pockets, but being able to access the 2 side compartments of the bag while it's zipped makes up for that.
Even fully stuffed, this bag is super comfy to carry around. Yep, it's cute, comfortable, functional and spacious. I think I've found our permanent solution for a diaper bag!
