When we think of the holidays and the gift giving, we think of the gifts that our recipients can enjoy and will appreciate. I know that in my home, when it comes to those items that I can find of use and that I will be able to enjoy and appreciate, I think of things that I, as a parent, use everyday. For me, one of the items I use everyday is the diaper bag, and with the diaper bags, I like to have room and style. So when we were sent the Ju-Ju-Be Be Prepared diaper bag in the new The Queen-Be design, I was very excited to check it out and add it to my list of must have items for new parents!
One of the things that stood out for me when I first looked at this diaper bag is the space. I mean, just by looking alone and not even opening it, I can see that there are many zippered compartments. I found that once it is opened, it can expand, allowing me to put not only the new babies items inside that include her diapers, wipes, burpies, bottles and a change of clothes, but also the room to add the items I need for my toddler as well! The full zip down Mommy Pocket, gives me room for my easily accessible items, such as my wallet, sunglasses, cell phone, keys, and even my tablet that I can keep in the magazine pouch! Another fun spot that is in the Mommy Pocket is the place where I can keep those photos of my babies in, allowing me to have them handy when we are at the park or out with friends!
When it comes to keeping the bottles, water bottles, and sippy cups stored safely away, I can use the side pouches which you can find on each side. These side pouches not only have a flap that keeps them covered that are magnetic so they are not noisy, but they are also insulated, to help keep drinks cold! On the backside I found that there is a changing pad that has memory foam in it, and on the bottom of the pouch with the pad, there is a crumb drain, which allows me to rid the bag of any crumbs that might build up. For the versatility aspect, I like that on the main compartment I can choose to keep it as a diaper bag or turn it into a diaper tote. I can also keep the kids things separated inside using the smart tabs that are different colors so I can easily access each of the kids things in the mesh pockets! And when I need to get in the diaper bag, I can see inside because the lining is a light color, which helps so I do not need to try and use my phone to see in my bag or dig around and hope I grab the right things.
Along with the convenience that the Be Prepared offers, I like that with the Queen Be, I get a design on this bag that stands out. Giving parents like myself who want to have the functionality of a diaper bag, without having to give up personal style, a bag that is very functional and that also offers style that can be used for a variety of uses when out with baby! I say that, because unlike other diaper bags that you can come across, this one has a very sleek style to it, allowing me to coordinate with it so when I am out with the kids, I am not carrying a bag that does not offer style.
Then when it comes to the cleaning, aside from the crumb drain, I like that I can keep this bag looking amazing, even with kids. Because it is machine washable and teflon treated, so even if something gets spilled on it, I can easily wipe it off! Making the Ju-Ju-Be Be Prepared with the Queen-Be design, a great gift to give the new parent on your holiday shopping list, or to even get for yourself when you are looking for that bag that has the room and style!
Product received, thank you to Ju-Ju-Be as well as the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.
I like this bag. It's not the typical diaper bag, you know, with baby designs & patterns. You could carry this even after you don't need a diaper bag.
