Before I became a mom I had way too many purses and naturally that addiction turned to diaper bags. And so for nearly the past five years I have used so many diaper bags, but they all had one thing in common – they were obviously diaper bags. I had really been wanting to find a bag that was big enough to hold everything I need for my girls in an organized manner, but had more of a “purse” look and I finally found it at JJ Cole Collections.
JJ Cole Collections has a great selection of diaper bags to choose from, but the one that I absolutely loved and just had to have was the Satchel Bag. It is available in canvas and faux leather in a variety of colors. I received Charcoal Trellis which is a canvas option.
For me a diaper bag needs to be rather large. Since we cloth diaper they take up a lot more room in the bag then disposables plus you can’t forget a wet bag (to store the dirty diapers). The Satchel Bag was the perfect size for me at 17”w by 13”h by 6”d plus it has so many pockets to keep everything organized. In fact there are 8 exterior pockets – two of which have zippers and are perfect for storing my smart phone and blog business cards – as well as 4 interior pockets. Just check out how much I can fit in there!
Just off the top of my head I know there were 5 newborn cloth diapers, a wet bag, nursing cover, 2 changes of cloths for Willow, a few pull-ups, pants for Kaelyn, changing pad (which comes with the Satchel Bag), wallet, plus a few more odds and ends. Plus I love all the different ways you can carry it too.
I typically use the attached handles because it easily swings over my shoulder and gives the purse vibe that I had been searching for, however you can also use the detachable padded shoulder strap.
Plus if you are using a stroller instead of taking up precious basket storage space JJ Cole Collections have included Grips Stroller Attachments which you simply loop over the push bar of your stroller and hook to the Satchel Bag. The Grips don’t take up much space so I just shove them down into one of the exterior pockets so they are always with the diaper bag no matter what stroller I may be using at the time… I may have a stroller addiction too, hehe.
I also want to mention that this diaper bag is PVC and phthalate free. Plus it is very reasonably priced at $69.95 (canvas) and $89.95 (faux leather). This bag is composed of high quality materials and is made to last. I receive compliments everywhere I go with it and I absolutely love that it doesn’t scream “diaper bag.” I am now a stylish momma and you can be too.
