Ended – Review and Giveaway – Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bags

November 3, 2009
I am a mom of two “littles” – one very active toddler and an infant. That means I have a lot of accessories to carry  with me whenever we go out. Who knew such little people needed so many things!!!
I have tried MANY different diaper bags – some small, some large – back packs, over the shoulder bags – even a converted laptop bag. None of them seemed to do what I wanted them to do. I was always digging through them trying to find the one thing I needed RIGHT. NOW!
That is why I was so thrilled to try out a Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag! Here is the story of how this diaper bag was designed.

Mrs. Rachael Smith after many mornings scrambling out the door with her children, realized she spent too much time worrying about the little details (keys, change of clothes, snacks, etc…) and not enough time focused on the essentials.

One day while struggling to juggle the demands of her infant daughter and toddler son at the airport, this all came to a head. As they boarded their plane, her son wanted his toy train and her daughter began crying for her bottle. While digging through her traditional diaper bag, Rachael accidentally spilled her daughter’s bottle all over the bag’s contents. Then, in desperation to find his toy train, she dumped out the bag and emptied everything out onto a chair.

Finally, locating the toy train, she shoved everything back into the bag. Frustrated and with two children in tow, she hurried to board the plane. Once seated, she looked at the disorganized and dripping wet diaper bag and thought to herself, “I can do better than this!” Suddenly the ultimate baby bag design came to her.  Minutes later, she began sketching the ideal diaper bag. Now, two years later, she proudly introduces the Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag.

The bags come in six fashionable colours – I chose a brown bag with pink polks dots.

When the parcel arrived, I immediately dumped the contents of my old diaper bag on the floor and started to pack the Mrs. Smith’s bag. I could not believe how many little pockets and holders there were on this bag! I easily packed EVERYTHING from my old bag into the Mrs. Smith bag and still had a lots of room to spare!

Here is an excerpt from the website describing the features:
The benefits of the Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag are unmatched, like the unique pull-out drawer, which can be taken completely out of the bag. In the Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag, you can fit:
  • Two bottles and one sippy cup in their own insulated holders
  • Jars of baby food
  • Two pacifiers
  • Lots of snacks and toys
  • Four to five sets of clothing
  • Wipes in a their own wipes container
  • Six diapers
  • A washable, full-sized changing
    pad (is included!)
  • And dedicated places for your keys, cell phone, sunglasses, credit cards, cash, ID
    and water bottle

And you can access all of these items easily!The Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag converts to a backpack by using its own shoulder strap. It’s designed with style and flare, and keeps you organized. The Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag also comes in black for those who also love to be organized, but don’t do pink!


My favourite features are
  1. the many different “Parent pockets” for keys, phone, water bottle, sunglasses which are located on the outside of the bag for easy access.
  2. the pull out drawer – an outstanding design feature! I keep snacks and little toys for my toddler in there so that I can access them easily when needed.

I love showing this bag off to other moms who all want to knwo where I got it! One friend even suggested that once the kids are out of the “diaper bag stage” that I can use it as a scrapbooking bag. I love a diaper bag that I can use AFTER the kids are out of diapers!

Not one, but TWO lucky readers are goign to win one of these bags for their very own! Simply visit the Mrs. Smith’s Diaper Bag website and comment on what bag you would choose if you win.

Giveaway ends Thursday November 12, 2009 at noon Central time. Open to Canadian and US residents.

    I am torn between the polka dot bag for me or the black one so that dad can feel masculine carrying it too. I would probably choose black since then we both could love it!

    I would choose the black bag, because its sleek and stylish, and I would be able to use it not only for my daughter, and all her things, but I could use it to organize things that I would normally carry in my purse.
