If you are looking for a designer diaper bag, but don’t want to pay over $200, check out this sale from Chapters Indigo. Get the Petunia Pickle Bottom boxy backpack for only $160, with a regular price of $220.
Before you faint at the $160 price tag for a diaper bag, let me give you a little perspective. This bag really does sell for over $200 normally. I found it at Snuggle Bugz for $214, Amazon for $200 and Cheeky Monkey for $189. Depending on the style you are looking for, this means you’ll be saving at least $30 and up to $55.
So, what makes these bags worth the money? First of all, these are gorgeous bags that are very functional. There is no Winnie the Pooh adorning its sides, so you can continue to be the fashionable woman you are, even after having a baby. It has multiple organizational pockets, so you’ll know exactly where in your bag that soother is or your lipstick. It has a built-in change station with a detachable change pad for using in those oh-so questionable family washrooms at the mall.
I found multiple good reviews for this bag online, and this review from Amazon.com sums it up nicely from a person who says they looked at every single diaper bag on the market:
- I love the changing area that’s kind of built into the bag. And I’m glad that the changing pad also detaches.
- I love that the flap that covers the bag is Velcro because I can reach in for quick access to the changing area for things like a pacifier, without having to struggle with a zipper.
- I like how sturdy the Velcro flap is. I’ve had my pocket picked before, and I feel like if someone wanted to get in my bag for my wallet while I was wearing this as a backpack, I would hear the the Velcro opening.
- This bag is gorgeous. The hardware is beautiful. The embroidery is stunning. It’s the nicest bag I’ve ever owned and I can see using it as a carry-on for airplane travel even with older kids.
She even mentions that her husband ran over the bag with the car (!) and that it still holds up nicely. That’s quite the statement.
There are a few different styles to choose from for this bag including the Sunshine in Scandinavia, which is a yellow, the Hotel de Ville Stop, which is a brown with a subtle pattern and the Daydreaming in Dax, which has a gorgeous floral print in yellow and grey.
Shipping will be free on these bags, as they exceed the $25 free shipping threshold.
