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 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!

Here's a running directory of the bags I have on hand, note that some have their own posts and some are still on this list. I have been trying to move them since this post is too long and takes forever to load.

*note that this is a directory of my stash and these will link to standalone blog posts by brand as I have them done. Some things will remain here until they have migrated to their own post!

1. Lizzy


Brand name: Sarah Wells Bags

Style/Bag name: Lizzy - Tote Style

Cost (new): $109 before discount

Discount codes available?: 15% off with TEACHINGMOTHERHOOD15 or bundle deal

Multiple color options?: Yes, many options (some will retire, new ones come every now and then)

Exterior material: Nylon

Weight (empty): 1 pound 5 ounces

Dimensions: 17"H x 16"W x 7"D

Structure (i.e wire frame): No

Total number of pockets: 7

Laptop pocket?: Yes, up to 15'' laptop

Insulated pocket(s): Two thermal lined 'pump pockets' are able to hold milk and ice packs for 6 hours.

How to clean?: Spot clean, don't machine wash

Matching accessories: Cold Gold (cooler bag), Pumparoo (wet/dry bag), Swag bag (little zipper pouch)

Bottom feet or grips?: Little metal feet

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Pump bag, also makes excellent diaper bag

What I love: I love the size, she's truly a "fit everything you need" bag. I like that the lack of structure (wire frame) allows for overstuffing. I'm also one who appreciates the ability to match with accessories, and multiple strap options. Lizzy has tote straps and a crossbody strap. I love that there are two interior padded pockets, so one can be for a pump and one can be for a cooler/milk. Or using as a diaper bag, you can put larger items in there and still have access to the interior space.

What I’d change: I can't think of anything I'd want to change or add to this bag. She covers all the bases for a pump bag! If anything, maybe an exterior water bottle/chiller pocket.

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I think so. With a 15% discount the total -with free shipping and tax- is just under $100. If you wanted to add matching accessories, cold gold cooler and pumparoo wet bag, it comes up to around $160. I think these bags are all well worth their price. Twice a year there's a huge outlet sale with INSANE discounts, and a few other sales sprinkled around the year. I like to take full advantage of those deals!

Packing video? Le floral here, and Groovy here! (two colors of the same bag)

Where to buy? Available from Sarah Wells Bags here or Amazon here

 

2. Kelly

Sarah Wells Kelly Review

Brand name: Sarah Wells Bags

Style/Bag name: Kelly Backpack

Cost (new): $130 before discount

Discount codes available?: 15% off with TEACHINGMOTHERHOOD15 or bundle deal

Multiple color options?: Yes, many options (some will retire, new ones come every now and then)

Exterior material: Nylon

Weight (empty): 1 pound 7 ounces

Dimensions: 15"H x 12.25"W x 7"D

Structure (i.e wire frame): No. 'Lightly structured' but no wire framing.

Total number of pockets: 8

Laptop pocket?: Yes, up to 17'' laptop

Insulated pocket(s): One thermal lined 'pump pocket' is able to hold milk and ice packs for 6 hours.

How to clean?: Spot clean, don't machine wash

Matching accessories: Cold Gold (cooler bag), Pumparoo (wet/dry bag), Swag bag (little zipper pouch)

Bottom feet or grips?: Little metal feet

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Pump bag, also makes excellent diaper bag

What I love: I'm a big fan of backpack straps. I often take my kids on walks- and in some places we don't bring the stroller and let them walk with us. I can't go anywhere empty handed, so I often bring a backpack with me. Kelly fits an excellent amount of stuff, especially as a standard diaper bag. I like the lack of frame/solid structure because she can be overstuffed a bit, like with those tiny sweaters you don't know if you might need but you toss them in anyways.

What I’d change: I wouldn't mind two interior padded pockets, but on the one side there is an exterior bottle/chiller pocket that's also a great feature. The Fiona bag does have both two interior pockets and an exterior bottle/chiller pocket, so it's like Lizzy and Kelly pockets combined.

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I think so. With a 15% discount the total -with free shipping and tax- is $114. If you wanted to add matching accessories, cold gold cooler and pumparoo wet bag, it comes up to around $180. I think these bags are all well worth their price. I'll mention again - Twice a year there's a huge outlet sale with INSANE discounts, and a few other sales sprinkled around the year. I like to take full advantage of those deals! I'm a person who NEVER pays full price for ANYTHING.

Packing video? As a pump bag here, and diaper bag here!

3. Norah


Sarah Wells Norah Review

Brand name: Sarah Wells Bags

Style/Bag name: Norah Backpack/Tote hybrid

Cost (new): $165

Discount codes available?: 15% off with TEACHINGMOTHERHOOD15 or bundle deal

Multiple color options?: Currently 4 available - black, latte, mineral, and olive

Exterior material:

Weight (empty): 2 Pounds

Dimensions: 16.5"H x 13.5" W x 7"D

Structure (i.e wire frame): Yes, wire frame - doctor bag like opening.

Total number of pockets: 9

Laptop pocket?: Yes, fits 15-17" laptops

Insulated pocket(s): Two thermally lined interior padded pockets, can keep milk cold for 6 hours with ice packs

How to clean?: Spot clean only, do not machine wash

Matching accessories: Plenty! Cold Gold cooler, Pumparoo wet/dry bag, SWag bags

Bottom feet or grips?:

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Main use is a breast pump bag, but makes an excellent diaper bag as well.

What I love: I love that you can carry like a tote or backpack, sometimes you need options! I personally also enjoy the structure and how she sits up even with nothing inside. Great space for all of your pump gear (or diapering gear) and looks beautiful. The solid colors are very nice and easy to match with accessories.

What I’d change: I wouldn't mind being able to change/remove the straps, to keep one set on and the other set off. That's a feature I've seen from some other bags that I found to be pretty interesting. I would also not mind an exterior bottle pocket!

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: One of the higher priced bags from Sarah Wells, I do find Norah to be worth the money. Built well, sturdy, secure, and very stylish. $150 is a lot of money for a pump bag, but you get what you pay for with this brand every time.

Packing video? Yes- "what fits?" here and special request "does motif luna and accessories fit" here

Where to buy? Available from Sarah Wells Bags here or Amazon here

 

4. Fiona


Sarah Wells Fiona Backpack Review

Brand name: Sarah Wells Bags

Style/Bag name: Fiona- Backpack

Cost (new): $165 before discount

Discount codes available?: 15% off with TEACHINGMOTHERHOOD15 or bundle deal

Multiple color options?: Heather grey, Black, Hot Pink, Earth, Sky

Exterior material: Neoprene

Weight (empty): 2 pounds 1 ounce

Dimensions: 15"H x 13"W x 6"D

Structure (i.e wire frame): Lightly structured

Total number of pockets: 6 - NEW version contains PIPs (pocket in pockets)

Laptop pocket?: Yes, up to 17'' laptop

Insulated pocket(s): Two thermal lined 'pump pockets' are able to hold milk and ice packs for 6 hours.

How to clean?: Machine wash, air dry.

Matching accessories: Cold Gold (cooler bag), Pumparoo (wet/dry bag), Swag bag (little zipper pouch) in close matching prints but not exact matching colors/materials.

Bottom feet or grips?: None

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Pump bag, also makes excellent diaper bag or travel bag.

What I love: I love the size, she's truly a "fit everything you need" bag. I like that the lack of structure (wire frame) allows for overstuffing. I'm also one who appreciates the ability to match with accessories, and multiple strap options. Lizzy has tote straps and a crossbody strap. I love that there are two interior padded pockets, so one can be for a pump and one can be for a cooler/milk. Or using as a diaper bag, you can put larger items in there and still have access to the interior space.

What I’d change: I can't think of anything I'd want to change or add to this bag aside from adding new color options!

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I absolutely think so. With a 15% discount the total -with free shipping and tax- is just under $140. You can also grab the Fiona bundle with accessories for $214 -This is including Pumparoo, SWag bag, and Cold Gold. (And newly added PackSWell!) The Fiona is a very impressive bag- I love that you can machine wash her, and the feel of the neoprene is amazing. The color options are great to pair with almost any of the accessories available. The Fiona is like Kelly and Norah had a baby- the two interior padded pockets from Norah, paired with the exterior bottle pocket from Kelly, and some new features added in like the hidden "pocket behind a pocket" on the front of the bag. Fiona has quickly become one of my most used diaper bags when we go out for park trips or long drives.

5. Madeline DISCONTINUED


Sarah Wells Madeline Rolling Suitcase Review

Brand name: Sarah Wells Bags

Style/Bag name: Madeline Rolling Suitcase

Cost (new): $199 but currently marked down to $149, can be further discounted with my 15% off code

Discount codes available?: 15% off with TEACHINGMOTHERHOOD15 or bundle deal

Multiple color options?: Only black

Exterior material: Not sure

Weight (empty): 8 lbs., 3 oz.

Dimensions: 22"H × 14" W x 9"D

Structure (i.e wire frame): Solid structured

Total number of pockets: 6

Laptop pocket?: Yes, up to 17'' laptop

Insulated pocket(s): Two thermal lined 'pump pockets' are able to hold milk and ice packs for 6 hours.

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth.

Matching accessories: Cold Gold (cooler bag), Pumparoo (wet/dry bag), Swag bag (little zipper pouch) in close matching prints but not exact matching colors/materials.

Bottom feet or grips?: Wheels

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Pump bag, perfect carry on size.

What I love: I love that this bag is designed to be the perfect pump carry on bag, the little cubbies/shelf inside are such a well thought out design for organizing pump gear but keeping it easily accessible while traveling.

What I’d change: I wouldn't mind if it somehow folded up for storage, but not many rolling suitcases do that. I've found that I can actually use Madeline as a sort of storage locker in my bag closet, she's currently full of smaller bags and cold golds.

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I got mine during the outlet sale for a very good price, and now the sale pricing is very decent! With my code it gets down to $126 which is an excellent price compared to the original $200. If you're someone who needs to travel with your pump gear, I would absolutely recommend this. You can even put another bag on top (especially one with a trolley sleeve) and be completely set to go.

Packing video? I haven't made one yet!

1. Mini Diaper Bag


Itzy Ritzy Mini Diaper Bag Review

Brand name: Itzy Ritzy

Style/Bag name: Mini Diaper Bag

Cost (new): $89 before discount

Discount codes available?: $15 off with of your first $100+ purchase by clicking here!

Multiple color options?: 8 total on the site as of 4/24/23- Coffee and cream, Cognac, Vanilla Latte, Leopard, Black, Blush, Taupe, Olive.

Exterior material: Outer fabric 100% polyurethane, lining 100% polyester

Weight (empty): 2.1 pounds

Dimensions: 11.5" L x 7.5" W x 13.75" H

Structure (i.e wire frame): Semi structured, stiff leatherlike

Total number of pockets: 8 pockets, 4 internal and 4 external

Laptop pocket?: No

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

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth

Matching accessories: Comes with a changing pad, you can mix and match different patterns of packing cubes and other accessories from the site. For example, all coffee and cream accessories are: Wallet/clutch, bottle bag, Paci pod, Wipes case, Stroller caddy, Boss Bow Charm, Tassel, and other bags such as Boss, Boss plus, Dream weekender, Mini Plus.

Bottom feet or grips?: Signature rubber "foot" bottom.

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

What I love: I love the size and full front zip down. For a mini bag it still fits quite a bit, but not everything for an overpacker mom of multiple kids like myself. This may be best when my kids are older and don't require multiple diapers/snacks/cups etc. I'm about to have another newborn in a few months and my two toddlers, so this one won't be used for family outings.

What I’d change: I wouldn't mind if the side bottle pockets had some kind of flap cover or top- I can't help but think they won't hold temp for very long but I haven't tested myself. I would also change the straps- adding some more width or padding maybe. Thinner straps aren't always better and can be irritating if the bag is heavier (though it won't get too heavy as it's a mini bag)

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I think as expensive as the brand is, they do have very well made bags. The material has a very sturdy and premium feel to it, and the rubber foot on the bottom will help extend the life of the bottom of the bag if it's set down frequently. Spending almost $100 on a mini bag is a bit much, so I typically would wait for a sale here if you have your eye on one. They do a couple sales a year and have really good prices for those.

Packing video? Looking over the bag and packing here!

Where to buy? Available on Itzy Ritzy here or Amazon here - I bet you could use a baby registry discount on that!


 

2. Itzy Ritzy Boss Backpack DISCONTINUED


Itzy Ritzy Boss Backpack Review

Brand name: Itzy Ritzy

Style/Bag name: Boss Backpack

Cost (new): $179 before discount

Discount codes available?: $15 off with of your first $100+ purchase by clicking here!

Multiple color options?: Currently on the site, 2 available. Blush and Black.

Exterior material: Outer fabric 100% polyurethane, lining 100% polyester

Weight (empty): 2.5 pounds

Dimensions: 12.5"L x 10"W x 18"H

Structure (i.e wire frame): Semi structured, stiff leatherlike

Total number of pockets: 17 total pockets (10 internal and 7 external)

Laptop pocket?: No

Insulated pocket(s): One side bottle pocket is insulated.

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth

Matching accessories: Comes with a changing pad and tassel and stroller straps. Plus you can mix and match different patterns of packing cubes and other accessories from the site. For example, wipes case, packing cubes, Paci pods, sanitizer holders, etc.

Bottom feet or grips?: Signature rubber "foot" bottom.

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

What I love: I love the size and full front zip down. These bags fit a very good amount of stuff, and have an impressive number of pockets. A lot of people complain that these bags are too heavy, but only 2.5 pounds isn't terrible for the size. The fawn design classic and Mimiandpal Radley are both over 4 pounds. I love the padding on the back and the straps and the large size of the side pockets- I believe the boss plus has two external side pockets while the standard boss only has one.

What I’d change: I honestly can't think of anything I'd change with these bags, they're very well done.

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I think for $179 these are justifiably expensive. They're extremely well made and "fancy". With a coupon they're even better priced as well- and they do sales a few times a year that are usually 15-20% off or even more if it's a color that's on it's way out.

3. Boss Plus Backpack


Itzy Ritzy Boss Plus Backpack Review

Brand name: Itzy Ritzy

Style/Bag name: Boss Plus Backpack

Cost (new): $189 before discount

Discount codes available?: $15 off with of your first $100+ purchase by clicking here!

Multiple color options?: Constantly changing, it seems. Pictured is "meadow".

Exterior material: Outer fabric 100% polyurethane, lining 100% polyester

Weight (empty): 3.1 lbs

Dimensions: 14.5"L x 10"W x 18"H

Structure (i.e wire frame): Semi structured, stiff leatherlike

Total number of pockets: 19 multi-functional storage pockets (6 external and 13 internal)

Laptop pocket?: Yes, fits up to a 15” laptop

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

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth

Matching accessories: Comes with a changing pad and tassel and stroller straps. Plus you can mix and match different patterns of packing cubes and other accessories from the site. The items currently available that match my Boss Plus (meadow) are packing cubes, bow charm, and bottle bag. The Boss Plus also comes with a branded dust bag for storage.

Bottom feet or grips?: Signature rubber "foot" bottom.

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

What I love: I love the size of these bags, and despite feeling a bit dense they're not overly heavy. The amount of pockets is extremely impressive, and there's a place for everything. Pair that number of pockets with their packing cubes and you're SO organized! I love the rubber foot on the bottom, and the bottle pockets being large enough to fit my ceres chill inside and hold it securely with no flopping/falling risk.

What I’d change: I honestly can't think of anything I'd change with these bags, they're very well done.

My rating: 5/5

Worth the price?: I think for $189 these are justifiably expensive. They're extremely well made and "fancy". With a coupon they're even better priced as well- and they do sales a few times a year that are usually 15-20% off or even more if it's a color that's on it's way out. These and the Boss Backpacks are very similar, but if I had to pick only one I would take a Boss Plus for the additional pockets (including the large front pocket and second side bottle pocket).

4. Dream Convertible Diaper Bag


Itzy Ritzy Dream Convertible Bag Review

Brand name: Itzy Ritzy

Style/Bag name: Dream Convertible Diaper Bag

Cost (new): $169 before discount

Discount codes available?: $15 off with of your first $100+ purchase by clicking here!

Multiple color options?: 5 options currently available- Midnight Black, Cloud Camp, Leopard, Canyon Rose, Sapphire Starlight

Exterior material: Puffer style (like a winter jacket)

Weight (empty): 2.75 lbs

Dimensions: 16"L x 7.5"W x 17.5"H

Structure (i.e wire frame): Soft sided, not too solid structured

Total number of pockets: 14 total pockets (8 exterior and 6 interior), including 2 insulated bottle pockets and a convenient laptop pocket

Laptop pocket?: Yes

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

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth

Matching accessories: Comes with a changing pad and tied tassel, also stroller straps. The dream collection doesn't have many directly matching accessories but you can put other patterns of items with them for a nice pairing.

Bottom feet or grips?: Signature rubber "foot" bottom.

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

What I love: I like the space of this bag, and the material of it allows for quite a bit of stuffing. I'm also a huge fan of convertible bags/straps so I like having the option of carrying tote/backpack style.

What I’d change: I have a fear of this material ripping/snagging easily and being a hard or unsightly repair.

My rating: 4/5 (because of that fear of damage, I don't take it out often!)

Worth the price?: I think for $169 this one is in the realm of "almost worth it". I paid $100 for mine, brand new in the plastic from a Facebook group. The material being somewhat 'fragile' makes me so nervous that I wouldn't have liked to pay much more for it than I did!

Packing video? Packed as a diaper bag here!

Where to buy? Available on Itzy Ritzy here or Amazon here - I bet you could use a baby registry discount on that!


 

5. Dream Weekender


Itzy Ritzy Dream Weekender Review

Brand name: Itzy Ritzy

Style/Bag name: Dream Weekender

Cost (new): $199 before discount

Discount codes available?: $15 off with of your first $100+ purchase by clicking here!

Multiple color options?: 6 options currently available 4/23- Midnight Black, Cloud Camp, Leopard, Canyon Rose, Sapphire Starlight and Coffee and Cream

Exterior material: Puffer style (like a winter jacket)

Weight (empty): 3.75 lbs

Dimensions: 20"L x 8.3"W x 18"H

Structure (i.e wire frame): Soft sided, not too solid structured. Doesn't sit up on its own.

Total number of pockets: "12 total pockets (6 exterior and 6 interior), including 2 insulated bottle pockets and designated pockets for hospital paperwork and laptop- Separate zippered base compartment with Itzy Ritzy branded rubber base to keep tote bag stable and clean"

Laptop pocket?: Yes

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

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth

Matching accessories: Comes with a tassel and crossbody strap, the Coffee and Cream color that I have has a ton of matching options for things like bottle bag, wipes case, Paci pouch, etc. You can get small and/or large packing cubes to fit inside.

Bottom feet or grips?: Signature rubber "foot" bottom.

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Weekender/hospital bag

What I love: I like the space of this bag- it's a good sized weekender with solid straps and the bottom separate compartment is really nice too.

What I’d change: I have a fear of this material ripping/snagging easily and being a hard or unsightly repair just like the other dream items- I also wouldn't personally use this as a hospital bag as I prefer something I can wash afterwards. But for trips to stay over somewhere, this will be my first choice!!

My rating: 4/5 (because of that fear of damage, I don't take it out often!)

Worth the price?: I think for $199 this one is a bit high. I can imagine it's all material cost and paying for the brand name as well- this one I snagged on sale for I believe $160 or $170 which isn't terrible. I would wait for a sale on one of these if you're eyeballing them!

Packing video? I have not made one yet!

Where to buy? Available on Itzy Ritzy here or Amazon here - I bet you could use a baby registry discount on that!


 

6. Double Take Crossbody DISCONTINUED


Itzy Ritzy Double Take Crossbody Review


Brand name: Itzy Ritzy

Style/Bag name: Double Take Crossbody

Cost (new): $89

Discount codes available?: None as it's gone from the site, can be found used online though.

Multiple color options?: 1 option currently available - Chelsea + Cole Studded (black)

Exterior material: Outer fabric 100% polyurethane, lining 100% polyester

Weight (empty): Unknown

Dimensions: 8.5 x 4 x 6.5 inches

Structure (i.e wire frame): Has decent structure to it, holds it's shape well.

Total number of pockets: 2 compartments (one for baby and one for mom) with a total of 6 pockets!

Laptop pocket?: No

Insulated pocket(s): No

How to clean?: Spot clean with damp cloth

Matching accessories: Comes with changing pad, some prints (no longer available on the site) can be paired with things like sanitizer charm, keychains, Paci pods etc.

Bottom feet or grips?: None

Main use intention (pump bag/diaper bag/purse): Mom purse that's also a mini diaper bag.

What I love: I like that there's one side for mom and one side for baby- and it's actually quite spacious for a crossbody! Certainly doesn't replace my full diaper bag, but works very well for an outing with minimal needs.

What I’d change: I wish this was still available and in more colors. I would also not mind some different strap options- perhaps funky woven straps?

My rating: 4/5

Worth the price?: I think for what it's made of and the brand name, $89 isn't horrible. You can get lucky and get them on sale or secondhand for less, I purchased one that had been discontinued for about $50 on mercari and it was brand new in the plastic, never used.

Packing video? I have not made one yet!

Where to buy? Available on Itzy Ritzy here or Amazon here - I bet you could use a baby registry discount on that! As I write this, it's $20 cheaper on amazon than the regular site!

  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.

Discount codes available?: 10% off with TEACH10 or CLEVERLYVIP

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.

Insulated pocket(s): None

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.

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

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.

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.

  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!
