For months now I’ve searched for a backpack diaper bag that would serve more than one purpose. When I first had A I used a frumpy grey sack as a diaper bag, and since I didn’t really go anywhere it wasn’t such a big deal. After a few months we picked up a nice backpack for my fiance to use as a diaper bag when he had A. I loved it so much I started using it for myself. But it didn’t really fit me, or my style. I wanted something I could use on a regular basis, and take with me when I run into the city for a casting. I came across Vauva on Instagram and was instantly hooked by the appeal of their diaper bags. I reached out to them, and they sent me their black Colorland bag. I was so excited to get this product, my poor fiance had to listen to me talk about for a week!
I love the minimalist lifestyle, and this backpack definitely fits the bill. It’s sleek, clean, and goes with really whatever you are wearing. I actually wore it to story time the other day and so many moms came up and asked me where I got it from. I think it’s a great look for stylish and casual moms, and it’s also a bag you can use for a night out. I think what I love the most is the red lining. You don’t expect it, and it’s that signature aspect about the brand that sticks out. I did notice the straps seem to slip down during the day, that’s really my only criticism for the bag. It’s not a drastic change, but they do get a little loose as the day goes on.
There are four pockets inside, as well as a zipper pocket for storage or food. I think there’s plenty of room in there. I packed it full of items for a day out with A and could easily access everything I needed. It does come with a wet bag and changing pad. I love the changing pad, it’s a good size and not bulky at all. Perfect for those mall changing areas! I thought the insulated pocket was a great feature! I’ve actually never seen that in a diaper bag before, but it definitely comes in handy.
A feature I like most is the zipper pocket on the back of the backpack, near the straps. When I travel into the city I’m always nervous keeping money, or valuable items not tucked away. This pocket gives me the ability to do so, and has easy access. I thought it was a great add to the bag and keeps that sleek minimalist style. I’m definitely going to recommend this bag to my friends, and new moms. It’s lightweight and still holds everything you need without weighing you down.
