With my son, I settled with a bland, gender neutral diaper bag that had no storage, and was just a duffle bag dressed up as a "diaper bag" essentially. We ended up wearing through it really fast too, because it wasn't the greatest quality. When I had my daughter, I figured that it was time for an upgrade. I'd been drooling all over the JuJuBe diaper bags for years by that point, and the only thing stopping me was the epic price tag. After a rather frustration bag explosion (packing for two means a bigger bag is necessary!), I took myself out and invested in a JuJuBe BFF. Best decision, ever! The bag has gone through multiple overnight trips, many playdates, and still looks brand new. I can pack it as full as my heart desires,and still have room left over for my stuff- my wallet, lotions, keys, gum, even a book! Not to mention, the patterns are to die for! Definitely worth every penny spent!
