A diaper bag is one of the most used baby products that a new mom will have. On average, a mom carries a diaper bag almost every day for the first three years of her baby’s life. Since this bag will become your new “it” accessory, I recommend putting some serious thought into which bag will be perfect for you.
There are all types of diaper bags available for different types of moms. If you are looking for a diaper bag that is chic, looks like a large purse with plenty of pockets and comes with the “extras”, the Timi & Leslie Jessica bag might just be it.
The Jessica bag just happens to be my current go-to bag that carries all my purse goods and everything I need for the kids. I love that it looks more like a stylish purse than a dirty diaper-carrying diaper bag. It sports two comfy, adjustable shoulder straps and a longer shoulder strap that you can sling across your chest to carry it hands-free. If you prefer to hang it on the stroller, it comes with stroller straps as well.
On the outside, there are two accessible bottle pockets, three zipper pockets and two smaller open pockets great for storing things like a smart phone that you may want to get to quickly.
Inside the bag is a zipper pocket and five additional pockets to keep things organized. The light inner lining makes finding things at the bottom easy and the key fob hangs onto your keys when not in use.
The included changing pad is large and sports a mesh pocket on the outside to store a diaper and travel container of wipes for a quick change. An insulated bottle bag keeps your bottles cool and a large zipper pouch is great for keeping soiled clothes or cloth diapers away from the rest of the bag’s contents.
My favorite accessory in the bag is the included matching clutch that eliminates the need for a purse and a diaper bag. The clutch sports credit card pockets, a zipper pocket for discreet items and a strap to carry it over your shoulder
The Jessica bag is so roomy that I can also fit my 15” laptop and iPad inside and use it as a business bag when the kids are with me. (I wrap the laptop in the changing pad for extra padding.)
The Timi & Leslie Jessica Bag retails for $169, which is on par for luxury diaper bags, and is available in four colors. Many diaper bags are a good investment anyway, since companies are getting smarter with their non-baby designs that work fabulously for use when baby gets older.
