A Diaper Bag Debate Plus a Giveaway

My family is quickly approaching the arrival of our second beautiful boy. I'm almost 30 weeks pregnant and I'm now in full nesting mood. That means I've got check lists and to dos lined up for days and I'm anxious to get it all done before the baby comes home.

With my first little I was a stressed and busy working mom, always hustling from point A to point B. Some of the decisions I made were for utility and functionality purposes - one of those happened to be the purchase of my diaper bag. My husband and I decided we only needed one diaper bag between the two of us and we thought it was more valuable that the bag connected to my stroller for easy portability. It was not sexy, or beautiful or stylish. In fact it sadly looks like a man bag. It functioned great but there was nothing feminine about it.

Now that I'm a stay at home mama I take my little everywhere and I'm looking for diaper bag that is functional and fashionable. I don't want to lug my purse around AND a diaper bag - I'd rather the two work hand in hand. Here are some important factors that I'm considering for a new diaper bag:


Size - The bag itself needs to be large enough to accommodate all the needs of an infant and toddler while also doubling as a purse.

Fashionable - I want the bag to look great on my shoulder but be neutral enough that I can carry it with almost anything that I wear. Unlike my other bags I don't want to invest in multiples - I just want one. I want one option that can work seamlessly with most of my outfits.

Organization - When you're carrying around littles you never have a free hand so organization is key - think screaming infant, you need to grab a bottle or a pacifier STAT. The last thing you want to do is scramble around searching the bottom of your bag. Organized pockets, with a thermal space for bottles, is key to sanity in my opinion.

Portability - I'm looking for a bag that I can sling over my shoulder when necessary but that I can also carry like a speedy when the mood strikes. Having multiple handle options is definitely a plus in my book.

So naturally I've been doing some shopping, here are some of my favorite options:
