One thing you learn soon after you have a baby is, for as little of a person they are, they really require a lot of crap when you leave the house. I was honestly very surprised how much stuff we had to take with us when we took Goose anywhere, and she was a breastfed baby! I couldn’t imagine having to cart around formula, bottles, and water for formula fed babies.
I absolutely hated our diaper bag too. It was so hard to find anything in. The bag was deep, but really narrow. When Goose was about 3 months old, I ditched that one, and carried the backpack I used in high school.
Recently, I got to try the Cranberry Baby diaper bag. I really do wish I had known about these diaper bags when Goose was born. I love this bag.
First of all, I love that the bag comes with 4 pieces. You have the main big bag, two smaller bags that could be used for a wet/dry bag or bottles. You also have the changing pad. When Goose was a baby, I didn’t use a changing pad, just a blanket, only because I hated trying to pull the changing pad out and then trying to put it back in. This one is a lot nicer than the one I had, and I think I would use this one.
Another thing I like on the Cranberry Baby diaper bag is the fact you have 8 pockets and two zipper pockets to hold all of the baby stuff. The main compartment has a zipper too which is really nice, but I’ve not used it since I’ve been using this bag.
When you have a baby, it really matters how much stuff you can take with you. In the Cranberry Baby diaper bag, I was able to put the following: 3 onsies NB pjs, 3 pairs of NB pans, 4 NB shirts, 9 hemp/microfiber diaper inserts, 4 prefolds, 4 cloth diapers, and ring sling. Plus the bags and changing pad that came with the diaper bag. I was very impressed. I probably could have fit more too if I had organized it a little better.
Overall, I have loved carrying this bag. I have loved the super cute leopard print and leather accents. I’ve actually been using it as a computer case to carry my 13″ laptop. It has worked great, and I have places inside the bag for the power cord and all the accessories.
If you would like to purchase your very own Cranberry Baby diaper bag, you can find them on Amazon. The current price is $34 (PRIME!!!), which I think is less than what we paid for the crapy one that we had when Goose was born, and I like the Cranberry Baby one a ton better.
