New baby on the way means a legit excuse to start diaper bag hunting right? Before the bichin was born I bought a really nice diaper bag from SkipHop, I liked the design and it had a lot of pockets etc. so I figured that´s what you need in a diaper bag. I still think it´s a fun diaper bag but it´s exactly that: a diaper bag. You wouldn´t take the bag with you if you don´t have your kid close because it really looks like a diaper bag and therefore in the bag category is not one of my must-have fashion items. So for baby #2, I wanted something a bit nicer for mama as well! And what I found is seriously every mama´s dream!
When I came in touch with PacaPod to try and review one of their bags, I was over the moon because seriously, they are just so pretty! Also, they don´t look like diaper bags AT.ALL. As in, I would use the majority of their designs as a normal hand bag or to go to work with. I was drooling over all their beautiful, leather designs! Also, I had heard really good things about this brand and how practical their bags are so I was really excited to review one and see for myself.
I chose their Firenze model and I am not exaggerating when I am saying that I seriously take this bag everywhere now. Kid or no kid, this is my new favorite bag. It´s a really beautiful bag AND on top of that is one of the most practically designed diaper bags I have ever seen. It´s obvious this bag was designed by a mom who knew what a lot of moms are struggling with in a diaper bag when on-the-go. My new bag doesn´t have as many different pockets as my previous one but because of their amazing organizing system, it´s way more practical. I could never find what I needed in the huge black hole that a diaper bag can be and that is exactly what PacaPod solves. When out and about with a little one, I want to reach what I need easily and quickly and although this may sound like common sense I don´t know how many times I have been frantically looking for stuff in my previous diaper bag.
What I love most about this diaper bag (apart from the fact that it´s so PRETTY!!) are the different pods for the things you need most often with a baby: changing stuff and feeding stuff. There is one pod for the diapers, wet wipes, extra set of clothes, cream etc. which also comes with a changing mat, and another pod for milk, snacks, spoons, bibs etc. The food pod is even a cooler so it keeps your drinks and snacks cool. I mean, how genius is that? You can take both pods out and use them separately, so, for example, when we were at the airport last week and we had to go to the bathroom I didn´t have to take the whole bag but just the changing pod.
With our recent trip to the Netherlands, I put this diaper bag to a serious travel test and it passed 100%, I am in love with my new diaper bag so if you´re in the market for a new one, make sure to check out PacaPod!
Disclosure: I was gifted a PacaPod diaper bag for my honest review, however, all opinions are completely my own.
