Mrs. Smith Diaper Bag review and {Giveaway!}

I used to get so frustrated because I would dig and dig in my diaper bag for something (i.e. the much-needed pacifier for my screaming child) and would eventually find it after a struggle or I would just give up! No More! I was sick and tired of my deep, almost pocket-less bag. In my search for something better, I found Mrs. Smith's Diaper Bag. My solution to clutter.
This is a fantastically smart bag made for real moms! There are tons of compartments, including the fabulous drawer at the bottom with 3 compartments. The top portion is half the height of the bag, allowing for easy removal of items I use a lot. No more digging around in the bottom of my bag because I can see everything when I open the top. The drawer in to bottom is solid, so top side items don't crush whatever I choose to keep down below. Yet, the diaper bag is lightweight, even with the protective drawer casing. There are a total of 5 bottle/cup holders with 3 insulated bottle holders in the top, a mesh pouch on the outside, and another pouch with elastic on the outside. I would like there an outside pouch to be insulated also, since my baby takes tall bottles. There is a padded sunglasses holder, a cell phone holder, and a "documents pouch" which I use for my wallet.Another really cool thing about Mrs. Smith's diaper bag is that it converts to a backpack! Really great for outings to the park, hikes, airport, etc. I also like that aspect because I have a bad back and it is healthier for people to carry weight centered than off to one side. I learned in nursing school that kids carrying backpacks on one shoulder cause scoliosis cases to rise.Mrs. Smiths diaper bag also has a pouch in the top flap to hold the washable changing pad. Stored away from other things when it is dirty, but you can really clean it well.
The Mrs. Smith's diaper bag is a great quality bag. I really like the soft canvas material on mine and the cute pattern. There are lots of cute styles to choose from. It is sewn together to be very sturdy. One issue I did have was with the zippers sticking. They may loosen up after more use. I have to say the pictures online do not do it justice. It is far more attractive and not as bulky as the pictures make it out to be.Buy It!
Visit Mrs. Smith's Bags and buy a great diaper bag to keep everything you need organized.

  1. As much as I am drawn to the pink polka dot pattern, I think the black would be the smartest choice. It would go with everything!
