I sincerely hope all of you lovely ladies had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Those of you following my Instagram account already know what this week’s bag review is thanks to the very successful #flufflovemomsday giveaway promotion that I’ve been running for the past few weeks. Be sure to check out my account for the winner information and to congratulate the lucky mom! I had so much fun with this giveaway and look forward to running future ones as well.
For those of you just joining me, I’d love to introduce you to the lovely Babymel Cara in Navy Stripe.
This week’s packing list includes:
- 5 pocket diapers
- 1 wet/dry bag
- disposable wipes
- diaper cream
- pacifier pocket
- first aid kit
- shopping bag
- mommy water bottle
- baby sippy cup
- food jar
- change of clothes
- board book
- 3 toys
- makeup clutch
- cell phone
- changing pad (included with bag)
- insulated bottle holder (included with bag)
I love when I can fit both the sippy cup and glass jar in one place. The included bottle holder keeps everything nice and chilly.
The inside of the bag features a large main compartment, 2 large elasticized pockets, and 1 small zippered pocket. The elasticized pockets easily fit wipes, cream, and the changing pad as well as a blanket and change of clothes.
The zippered pocket is a great place to stash the first aid kit and pacifier pocket or other small, easily lost items.
I’ve begun packing my bags with diapers standing up. they make a great base for stacking other things on the top. As you can see, you can easily fit 5-6 changes in this bag.
On the top, I added the rest of my miscellaneous things to provide easy access to toys and a book.
The side pockets worked great for my water bottle and makeup clutch.
The front pocket runs the entire length of the bag, so clearly my wallet sneaks right in.
This is a gorgeous and budget friendly (around $100) bag made by Babymel’s parent company, Storksak. I’m loving this color scheme for summer time and it’s a great bag for going around town or even to the beach. One thing I’m really loving about this bag is that the stroller straps are a part of the removeable cross body strap. No small pieces to lose, and less bulk hanging off the sides of the bag keep it simple and beautiful.
