Mothers Minder Sling Diaper Bag
I finally did it! After using the same diaper bag since Kate was born 4 and a half years ago, I finally got a new bag!! (Can you tell that I’m excited?)

Granted, it’s not my dream bag (I’m still in love with the whole DadGear line of bags), but it’s still a great bag, especially for the sale price of only $16.83 on Amazon!

So, as soon as I got my new bag in the mail today, I dumped the contents out of my old bag and proceeded to slowly figure out exactly where each item belonged in the new bag. (I know, I’m a freak about organizational types of things. Just humor me here.) I was so surprised that a bag that is slightly smaller on the inside of the main compartment than my old back pack style bag actually fit all my stuff and still had room for more.

“How?” you might ask? Pockets, pockets, and more pockets. This bag is loaded with pockets, inside and out. Inside the main compartment there are three pockets – one zippered mesh pocket, a vinyl velcro pocket, and an iPod pocket (complete with access port to pull wires through). I’ve got an extra outfit for Karis, all her toys, a container of Cheerios and a mini diaper tote for all our diapering needs. (BTW, this was one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time – it’s so much easier to grab the mini tote to take with the baby into the restaurant’s bathroom when it’s time to change the diaper than to take the whole diaper bag!)

Zip that compartment closed and there are 3 more mesh pockets (2 elastic and 1 zippered) on the inside of the flap that covers the big zipper. On the outside of the bag, there’s another zippered pocket, and a big elasticized mesh pocket for bottles or sippy cups. On the back side of the main compartment, is a large zippered pocket that holds the matching changing pad and actually has enough room that you could carry diapers and wipes, too. Then on the sling there are 2 more pockets – 1 zippered and yet another elasticized mesh.

Believe it or not, I haven’t even filled all the pockets yet!

The entire thing is made of a vinyl type of material called Nylon Rip Stop that will wipe off easily with a wet rag (always a plus around babies!). And it has several ‘D rings’ that you can hang things off of and a bungee across the front that you could slip a blanket or lovey under and not have to use the space inside the bag.

Overall, I’m in love with this bag. My only suggestion for improvement would be to make the inside of the main compartment a lighter color than black so that you can see things a little better. Other than that, I’ll let you know how it holds up over the next couple of years!!

    WOW….that sounds so nice. An organizational freak’s dream–all those pockets! It makes me want to buy one even though I’ve already got a good diaper bag…..

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
