Known for their cute and classy designs, incredible well designed bags and fabulous features, I can understand why Ju-Ju-Be is known as one of the top diaper bag companies around!
The Be Prepared bag from their Premier line is the mother of all large diaper bags! It is not small by any means, measuring 18 1/2 wide x 14 high x 6 1/2 deep. If you are an over-packer, a parent with several small children, or if you are looking for something that would be suitable for overnight trips, this is the bag for you.
During the first couple of months after giving birth to my second daughter I carried this bag everywhere! I was able to organize my baby’s cloth diapers in the various mesh pockets and had lots of room to pack a couple changes of clothing, wipes, wallet, phone, hats, books, snacks, carriers and toys. In the end I still had room to spare!
The bag can fit A LOT and despite its large size, it is not awkward to carry and at the same time, keeps its shape without “slouching”. Tote handles can be tucked away neatly when you opt to use the top strap which has a comfy, memory foam pad. The grippy fabric underneath the strap prevents slippage which is a fabulous feature, as I’m always having trouble with straps falling off my shoulder!
While the interior is roomy it also keeps things organized with several pockets, a couple of which have color coded tabs for storing different sized diapers. I love that the entire bag is waterproof and Teflon treated, making for for easy cleanup and stain prevention.
A cool feature that I appreciated very much was the exterior “mommy pocket” which has a stretchy key band, cell phone pocket, a plastic window to place a picture of your children, and bunch of mesh pockets for additional storage. On either side of the bag are insulated pockets with magnetic closures, perfect to storing drinks or bottles.
The bag also comes with an extra large anti microbial, changing pad which is made with a soft touch memory foam, keeping your child cushioned during a diaper change.
What I liked the most about this diaper bag:
* All hardware is made from metal (not a fan of plastic clips!)
* Quiet magnetic closures as opposed to velcro
* Doubles as the perfect carry on with little ones
* Cute and stylish patterns
* Machine washable (Air to dry)
* Stroller clips are included in this Premier line bag. They are great for clipping on to your double stroller!
* When your babies are out of diapers it can still be put to good use as a travel bag!
Its easy to see why celebrities such as Katie Holmes, Jennifer Garner, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and Matt Damon are all fans of this fabulous brand!
