Diaper/Pump Bag Reviews

Here I'll keep a running list of the different bags I have and their features, pros and cons, and my opinion and review of them! I will start off posting with everything unfinished and review as I've tested them out and given them a good feel. I continue to collect bags, so waiting until I've used and reviewed them all will be impossible. Some items are excluded from the list (but I do have them!) such as accessories and smaller bags. UPDATE: this post is way too long to keep updating, so this will serve as a directory that leads to brand specific reviews as I make them!

  1. Ellie Backpack - Intended for Cloth Diapering!


Cleverly Ellie Backpack Review

Brand name: Cleverly Bags

Style/Bag name: Ellie Backpack

Cost (new): $179 for printed ones before discount, $189 before discount for solid ones. Currently being discontinued and discounted for only $66!

Discount codes available?: 10% off with TEACHINGMOTHERHOOD

Multiple color options?: 7 available- solid colors are obsidian, sapphire, and chestnut, printed are beeloved, Olivia, nova, and spotted

Exterior material: Synthetic leather and water-resistant canvas (on printed)

Weight (empty): 2.5 pounds

Dimensions: 16" H x 14.5" W x 6.5" D

Structure (i.e wire frame): No framing but has a soft structure that stands up well.

Total number of pockets: 17 in total, counting interior and exterior.

Laptop pocket?: No

Insulated pocket(s): Two exterior side pockets (expandable) which can fit very large bottles including the Ceres Chill.

How to clean?: Damp washcloth and mild dish soap, I would not machine wash.

Matching accessories: Oh absolutely. Packing set, pouches such as the pinch and pearl, tote bags, carry pod, and more depending on which print you have.

Bottom feet or grips?: Rubber tread on the bottom

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Diaper bag, but can also double as a pump bag if your pump fits inside.

What I love: I love that this bag is lightweight, great capacity, a ton of useful pockets, and able to be matched with so many accessories. The expandable side pockets fit my bottles very well (I use a ceres chill as a water bottle) and don't need to be wrestled in. There are way more than enough pockets for everything you could possibly need, and the matching pouches are greaet to pack with. I also love that the inside of the front zip down pocket (full zip down by the way) is a REMOVEABLE wet bag, and the inside has pockets along the sidewall rather than all crowded around the bottom of the bag. it's truly a remarkable bag that's easy to access from every angle. It's quickly become one of my very favorite bags! I may try to get one in another color to match some spotted accessories I grabbed on sale- my current color is Olivia and that one is BEAUTIFUL.

What I’d change: I honestly wouldn't change anything. I'm dreaming of more matching accessories (like a sling bag

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: 100% yes. This bag is comparable to other styles (such as the itzy ritzy boss bags) but has better features and is lighter weight. I love the color options and the quilted canvas is such a cool feature I haven't seen on other bags, and feels so nice! I would love to have the same quilted canvas material made into something like a sling bag or fanny pack.

What I love: Another very fancy, top of the line bag. This one I got an excellent price on during Black Friday and I'm very pleased with it. I love the convertible strap options, and it's actually quite roomy inside! I love that for being vegan leather it's buttery and very lightweight.

What I’d change: I think this bag is very well done and doesn't need any change- perhaps some included pouches for packing!

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: This bag is well priced for the material and feel of it. I would personally wait until a sale to buy, but this is a very well done bag and worth a decent price tag.

  1. Mini Diaper Bag


Fawn Design Mini Review

Brand name: Fawn Design

Style/Bag name: Mini Backpack

Cost (new): $99 Before discount

Discount codes available?: 15% off with code FAWNFAM15 or $20 off your first order of $125+ by clicking here

Multiple color options?: Warm blush, black, brown, dusty blue, and gray.

Exterior material: Premium pebbled faux leather

Weight (empty): Approximately 2 lbs

Dimensions: 11" L x 5" W x 10.5" H

Structure (i.e wire frame): No solid frame, the bag is flat when it arrives but has a half round shape when filled.

Total number of pockets: 9

Laptop pocket?: No

Insulated pocket(s): None

How to clean?: Spot clean only

Matching accessories: You can pair this bag with multiple matching accessories, such as bottle bag, changing clutch, various little pouches and bags.

Bottom feet or grips?: Little metal feet

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Mini Diaper Bag

What I love: I like the look of the bag and the half round shape is very unique. Convertible straps are something I'm a big fan of.

What I’d change: I personally find these bags a bit heavy for their size, and slightly overpriced for the amount of peeling I've seen in pictures on Facebook. I would love if material had a bit more structure instead of going flat when stored, it takes quite a bit of effort and stuffing to get the bags to the shape pictures on the website.

My rating: 3/5

Worth the price?: These bags are probably priced a bit higher than most people would like to pay. Especially if the peeling I previously mentioned happens often. I find that $100 for a mini bag is a bit high, I got all of mine 50% off during their spring sale this year. I also wish I had gotten a different color, I'm not as big of a fan of the blush and warm blush as I thought I would be based on their website pictures.

Packing video? I have not made one with the mini yet. Where to buy? Only available on the Fawn Design website here.

  1. Forma Backpack

Skip Hop Forma Diaper Bag Review

Brand name: Skip Hop

Style/Bag name: Forma- Backpack

Cost (new): $75 before discount

Discount codes available?: 15% off with Target or Amazon baby registry discount

Multiple color options?: Black, Navy, Grey, Mauve, and Sage

Exterior material: Quilted polyester

Weight (empty): 1.4 pounds

Dimensions: 16"L x 8"W x 14"H

Structure (i.e wire frame): Lightly structured, no frame but sits up on its own

Total number of pockets: 7

Laptop pocket?: Yes, changing pad pocket can fit laptop- size unspecified on Skip Hop site.

Insulated pocket(s): Two insulated bottle pockets on the side, comes with two packing cubes and one of those cubes is a cooler pouch. Ice pack not included.

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth and mild detergent.

Matching accessories: Comes with two matching packing cubes

Bottom feet or grips?: None

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Diaper bag

What I love: This was the second diaper bag we had, long ago I purchased a black one. We first got it when we had only one child (toddler age) and it fit all of our supplies very well. We had a second baby, and it fit both kids necessities without any issue. I love that this bag is so light for it's large capacity, and has easy to access pockets and large side pockets for bottles or sippy cups.I thought the black was beautiful- but this new sage color I picked up is perfect. Our black one got stained with what I believe is sunscreen, and I was never able to get it out properly. I love that it comes with two packing cubes and the backpack straps have stroller clips built onto them! This is truly an excellent budget bag that lasts a while.

What I’d change: I wouldn't mind if it had some kind of feet or protective bottom, I always get nervous setting a bag right on the ground!

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: Absolutely it is. For only $75 (less with a registry discount) this bag is well worth its price tag. Back when we had only one other diaper bag, I did think it was expensive. But now that I've seen what some other brands run, I can attest that this one is well within its rights and price tag.

Packing video? Looking over the whole bag and packing here!

Where to buy? From Skip Hop here, Carter's here (they have rewards points!), Amazon here (use your baby registry coupon!)

1. Diaper Bag Backpack


Ruvalino Diaper bag review

Brand name: RUVALINO

Style/Bag name: Diaper Bag Backpack

Cost (new): $42.99 before discount (do NOT believe the amazon listing that says it is marked down from $89. this bag has NEVER been that much, I've seen it for the last two years hovering around the $40 price point. That's a sales tactic used by some amazon sellers to make their item look like it's on a super good sale and make you buy it for fear of missing out.

Discount codes available?: 15% off with Amazon baby registry discount, also some coupon is usually offered such as "10% off at checkout" and you have to check the box when adding to cart.

Multiple color options?: 12 color options currently, I've seen some go out of stock and come back.

Exterior material: Polyester

Weight (empty): 1.78 pounds

Dimensions: 11.8l x 7.8w x 16.5h

Structure (i.e wire frame): Lightly structured, no frame but sits up on its own

Total number of pockets: 16

Laptop pocket?: Yes, changing pad pocket can fit laptop- size unspecified

Insulated pocket(s): Two insulated bottle pockets on the side, comes with two packing cubes and one of those cubes is a cooler pouch. Ice pack not included.

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth and mild detergent, I've heard some people machine washed theirs with no problem though.

Matching accessories: Comes with a changing pad and pacifier pod.

Bottom feet or grips?: None

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Diaper bag

What I love: This bag makes a great "beater bag" for me- if I'm going somewhere that I don't want to damage or dirty one of my more premium bags I'll reach for this one. Truly I was not impressed by this bag at all, almost none of the zippers matched and the padding feels like styrofoam. I don't know how it's so highly rated on Amazon.

What I’d change: I don't know where to start here, but having all uniform hardware (zippers) would have been a stellar idea. The foam padding (straps, backing, and changing pad) seems to be made of the bare minimum cheapest material, literally like styrofoam pad.

My rating: 2/5

Worth the price?: Almost. If you have literally only $40 for a bag, this will probably do just fine, but I'm not sure how long it'll hold up. If you need a spare bag for rough activities or tossing back and forth from grandmas house, this one will do. I really don't like how they faked a price markup, that's something that really bothers me about a brand.

Packing video? I haven't made one yet.

  1. Tiny-Go Diaper Bag Backpack DISCONTINUED


Twelvelittle Tiny Go Backpack Review

Brand name: Twelvelittle

Style/Bag name: Tiny-Go Diaper Bag Backpack

Cost (new): $55 final sale currently (May 2023)

Discount codes available?: None because discontinued

Multiple color options?: Just one, grey twinkle

Exterior material: Water-resistant PU coated polyester

Weight (empty): 1.4 lbs

Dimensions: H:13" / W:10.5" / D:5.75"

Structure (i.e wire frame): Lightly structured, no frame but sits up on its own

Total number of pockets: 8

Laptop pocket?: No

Insulated pocket(s): Two insulated bottle pockets on the side.

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth and mild detergent, I've heard some people machine washed theirs with no problem though.

Matching accessories: Can pair with bottle bag that matches interior, also changing pad.

Bottom feet or grips?: None

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Diaper bag

What I love: This bag makes a great "beater bag" for me- if I'm going somewhere that I don't want to damage or dirty one of my more premium bags I'll reach for this one. Also a great quick walk bag for minimal needs. The side pockets are quite impressive for holding larger water bottles.

What I’d change: I found that when I got mine, there was long, loose thread in 3 places. If I had paid full price for this (almost $90) and it came in that condition, I would have been really unhappy. it didn't affect the structure or integrity of the bag, but one would think it would have had to pass some kind of quality check for that price tag.

My rating: 4/5

Worth the price?: Sale price, yes. But this is not a bag I would have paid almost $90 for. It's well made but definitely not worth that much.

Packing video? I haven't made one yet.

Where to buy? Discontinued.

 

Petunia Pickle Bottom

  1. 2-in-1 Provisions Breast Pump & Diaper Bag Backpack


Petunia Pickle Bottom Provisions Review

Brand name: Petunia Pickle Bottom

Style/Bag name: 2-in-1 Provisions Breast Pump/Diaper Bag Backpack

Cost (new): $189 before discount

Discount codes available?: 15% off (one time use I believe) with the code PPB15

Multiple color options?: 4 options currently available- Brioche, Olive Ink Blot (being clearanced out at $125 as of May 2023), Grey Matte Leatherette, and The Disney Collab "Winnie the Pooh's Friendship Blossom".

Exterior material: Signature wipeable leatherette

Weight (empty): 2.36 lbs

Dimensions: 15" W x 15.7" H x 9.1" D

Structure (i.e wire frame): Semi structured. Sits up on its own very well.

Total number of pockets: 9 total pockets, two are extremely large capacity and fit the compatible (not included) intermix system.

Laptop pocket?: Zippered padded tech compartment to fit a 17” laptop

Insulated pocket(s): Bottom compartment, front pocket, and side pocket are all insulated.

How to clean?: "Petunia Pickle Bottom’s signature leatherette fabrics are naturally water-resistant and can be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Do not dry clean. Not machine washable. Insulated pockets have a water-proof thermal lining. This silver-colored lining is easy to wipe down with a wet cloth and mild detergent.

Removable diaper changing mat is stain-resistant and very easy to clean. Wash with a cloth and mild detergent, or place in your washing machine on the gentle cycle."

Matching accessories: Can match interior with intermix system, organizer trio, bottle butler, wristlet, changing clutch, etc. You can also get other similar bags in matching prints (like the crossbody sling for example, you can match brioche and brioche.)

Bottom feet or grips?: None

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Breast pump bag, diaper bag

What I love: This bag has EXTREMELY spacious compartments and manages to stuff very full and stay lightweight. I absolutely love that the intermix system can fit in the top or bottom, you could even have two in there if you wanted. I have the brioche color and it's absolutely gorgeous, I've not seen another bag like it. I'm also a big fan of the interior matching the accessories but the exterior is a simple neutral.

What I’d change: I can't think of anything I would change here, I wish they didn't cost so much (especially if you're getting accessories) but that's just how good quality bags run. I may like the side pocket (bottle pocket) to be a little taller, or a little more secure on thinner/tall water bottles.

My rating: 5/5, this bag has been one of my most used.

Worth the price?: I think for $189 for just the bag it's a little steep. Then if you wanted the intermix system, that's another $70. And if you wanted to add pouches (organizer trio) that's another $40! So to get the whole setup (not counting bottle butler, valet straps, or additional packing cubes) that's about $300! If you used the 15% off code, it would knock off about $45 (so essentially the organizer trio would be free) but that's still $260 and quite high. BUT- if you ask me, these bags are extremely well done. But you're really paying for the brand name here.

Packing video? I have not made one yet!

Where to buy? Available here on the Petunia website or on Amazon here, I wonder if baby registry coupons would apply there!
