Ever since I became a mum, there is something that follows me whenever I go out. Oh, the kids do stick to me but sentient beings can't be called things, right? Well, I do call them creatures from time to time. Anyway, the thing I am referring to is a diaper bag.
Gone are the days when I can carry a clutch bag, purse or leathered satchel. Okay, I can still do it but if I am out for long periods with the kids, I still need a diaper bag. If you are a mum, you would know what I mean. Milk bottles, diapers, nursing cover, baby wipes, changing pad, extra set of clothes, snacks, water bottles - these things just become necessities and it can get quite catastrophic if an item is missing when you have a dire need for it.
For me, I like to remain faithful once I find a trustworthy diaper bag and my first relationship lasted me for over four years where we travelled to many parts of the globe together. In my view, a good diaper bag has to be:
2) Has many pockets
3) Easy to sling or carry
4) Can be hung on a stroller
5) Made of safe material
6) Durable and resistant
7) Funky, chic and stylish
8) Does not look like a diaper bag
So, I'm really thrilled to have the chance to review this award-winning bag on A Happy Mum, plus I am going to give one away to my readers too!
Features and Functions
Like I said, I like my diaper bag to be functional and come with many different compartments, preferably in different sizes. Considering the number of things I have to put in the bag, I would still want it to be neat, not overly neat but just not messy, so that it remains convenient for me to reach for anything when I need it.
1) Key holder
Snap your keys in place and you never to have dig around for them anymore.
2) Accessory compartment
A place for you to store your mobile phone, shades or other small accessories.
3) Insulated pocket
Perfect for bottles and snacks.
4) Front and back pockets
These cannot be fastened but are so deep that your items will not fall out. In fact, I no longer have milk bottles or Hello Kitty water bottles jutting out as they can be completely concealed.
5) Water resistant pocket
Have stained or wet clothes to keep but no extra bag with you? You'll be thankful for this.
6) Detachable jar holder
This fits two jars nicely but I tend to use it for keeping a small packet of wipes and diaper rash cream.
7) Wet wipes holder
This is my favourite and I love how it comes with a hole in the middle so you can grab the wipes easily.
This is how my bag looks on a typical day. I love that it fits all my things nicely and even has room for more! Yet, from the outside, it does not bulge and still presents a sleek, modern look without letting anyone guess the inside contents.
I don't know about you but I kind of dig denim and this being my first jeans bag, which is made out of 93% recycled polyester, it even comes with some pretty cool accessories. These include a changing pad, insulated bottle holder, zip pouch, hooks for stroller and adjustable shoulder strap.
For me, I find that the changing pad comes in really handy at times, the stroller hooks help me go hands-free when we are out and the shoulder strap ups the attitude factor of this bag so that even the husband has no qualms carrying it around.
Style with Sustainability
Wonder where the bag gets its name? Its unique shape resembles that of a summer neckholder top which is why this bag is an eye-catcher on the street. The yellow faux-leather straps and loops provide accentuated contrasts and give it a funky, contemporary look. I am definitely impressed by how the Lässig Green Label Neckline Bag in denim blue has seamlessly combined style with functionality, making it not just a practical nappy bag but a fashion accessory as well.
