Before I had kids, I never really carried a purse. My few essentials (lip gloss, ID and a bit of cash) all fit easily into my pocket and toting around a purse just seemed like way too much hassle for me. So when I had kids, I was shocked by how many items I needed to have with me at all times to ensure my boys’ comfort. Diapers, bottles, snacks, toys…the list was endless. I found a few bags that worked fairly well for toting around the many accessories of motherhood but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t keep the bag organized. When I needed a sippy cup for Benjamin or a Hot Wheels car to keep Zackary amused, I invariably ended up rooting around in the bottom of the bag searching for the item I needed.
Then, the Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag came along. This incredible bag isn’t just designed to hold everything, it’s designed to hold it and keep it organized! I had heard great things about these stylish and useful bags in the past and I was thrilled when I was given a chance to test one out for myself.
I received the incredible Elite diaper bag in Pitch to review. When the bag arrived, the first thing I noticed was the fashionable faux croc material of the sleek black bag, which could easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth as needed. I also loved the long strap the bag featured; I have a big pet peeve of diaper bags with short straps that have to be carried by hand instead of thrown over the shoulder. Diaper bags are heavy; I don’t want to have to tote one around in my hand all the time! I was even more delighted when I learned that the strap could quickly and easily be taken apart and clipped onto the back of the bag to convert it into a backpack! My favourite two styles of bags are backpacks and messenger bags and the Elite Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag had provided both with one convertible design!
There were pockets and pouches galore in this diaper bag and I couldn’t wait to start filling them up. Convenient outer pockets provided padded protection for my sunglasses and cell phone. A wider side pocket provided the perfect place for my makeup essentials like a touch-up mirror, perfume and lip balm. Finally, a large, slim back pocket worked great for stashing a picture book to keep the boys entertained.
The inside of the bag was just as easy to organize. With six inner pockets along the interior of the bag, there was a place for absolutely everything! I used the small zippered pocket to hold my change and emergency cash. Insulated pouches I filled with sippy cups and bottles. Diapers, wipes, toys and other kid essentials fit easily into the large roomy main compartment. But the most ingenious aspect of the Mrs. Smith Diaper Bag was still to come!
How often does a parent try to pack a refreshing snack for their child on a hot summer day only to have that snack turn to mush in an overstuffed diaper bag? The Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag solves that problem once and for all with an absolutely sensational insulated pull-out drawer in the bottom of the diaper bag! With three compartments to keep snacks separate and an insulated design to ensure freshness, taking food on the go is no longer a hassle!
Top off all the amazing features with a full-sized changing pad that hides conveniently in the generous flap of the bag, metal hardware for unparalleled durability and even curved zipper pulls for easy opening and closing and you have what can really only be described as the ultimate diaper bag. This bag is really called the Elite bag for a reason!
My favourite feature was definitely the padded cell phone pocket and sunglasses pouch. It can be so easy for these items to get scratched in a regular diaper bag, but the separate compartments with a soft lined interior ensured that my delicate items were safe and sound no matter how much the bag got tossed around!
There really is no such thing as a bag that’s just for a mother or just for a baby once you become a parent. Every bag becomes, out of necessity, a family bag. But only the Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag provides the versatility, the space and the organization to actually function effectively as a bag that can hold every family essential and then tops it all off with a fashion sense that Mom is sure to love. If you’re tired of cluttered, unattractive and unfunctional diaper bags, check out these unbelievable bags for yourself. A Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag is the only diaper bag you’ll ever need!
is the only patented diaper bag with a pull out drawer making it the most unique bag I’ve ever reviewed….also making it one of the most functional as well. that you could put so much in a bag and keep it so incredibly organized. You can kiss those days of digging goodbye!
I have read quite a few reviews on this “diaper” bag and as you know I love to take care of my readers since many of you have small children or are expecting. I no longer use baby items since my boys are older but can tell the practical needs one provides, or doesn’t.
This bag has so much space and so many spots to keep things well organized. I always hate the struggle of a new baby and all the things required for their special needs. This bag has plenty of room to fit every stage of your children life & needs!
In all the reviews I’ve read everyone shows you how they organize it for babies or small kids. I’ve read some great reviews on this bag that you can check out on the Mrs. Smiths Blog. I noticed going through them no one really shows the bag without stuff in it so I wanted to show you myself.
This bag makes so much use out of every area. What I love about this bag is that I can still use it! This is the ! I can hold my keys, water bottle, phone, etc on the outside so it’s always quickly available without digging around…although there is no digging in this bag anywhere! The insides of the little are super soft making them a safe spot to store sunglasses or a touch screen phone or . The back of the bag also has a pocket perfect to hold a book or some (full size) magazines! Perfect for when I sit and wait while the boys run around.
The pull out drawer is perfect for storing lunch! The large square is the perfect size for bringing sandwiches with us. Three to be exact! I can then put snacks and fruit into the side spots or fit two juice boxes perfectly in each. Best part- they don’t get squished or crushed!
The top is great for extra drinks. Once again since there are three of us, I love that there are three drink slots. I then have room for bug spray, sun lotion, first aid essentials and more. The little zippered pocket is perfect for my license and some spending money.
It comes with a changing pad as well that folds up and stores nicely in the inside top.
I love this because it makes the perfect table cloth as well! It’s big enough to change a baby on and big enough for my boys to both put their lunch on so they’re not eating on a dirty surface.
Since the pad is washable I don’t have to worry about them getting it dirty either.
Spending the day at the park or zoo is so much easier when you have both your hands! Since this bag can be easily converted into a backpack I can bring everything I need with me and not worry about juggling things. I don’t have to worry about my arms getting heavy and can enjoy the day! With the outside pockets I can easily get to what I need.
The only thing I wish they had was more pattern/color choices. I feel that most of the choices are very girly and feminine. I’d love to see some boys prints and colors. I went with the black since it was the only gender neutraltone but if I had a girl I love their pink polka dot from their Tempo Collection.
