An Organized Diaper Bag & a GIVEAWAY!

Let the pregnancy rumors fly....

But it's not for me.

You see, months ago I was contacted by the friendly folks at J.J. Cole to see if I wanted to review a diaper bag.  And although all of the cutie patootie babies popping up in blog land have really made my baby cravings extra strong, I am not preggers.

But my bestest friend is!  And she is having a little girl, which I will call my niece.  I couldn't be more excited about this since she already has a boy, and well, I have three.  It's boy central around these parts so to be welcoming a girl makes for extremely exciting times!

I wanted to do something special for her, so I thought I would gift her a pre-filled diaper bag.  During my last visit to her home, I grabbed a few things she already had on hand {since things like diapers and bottles are very mom specific}, and then went out to purchase the rest as a gift.

Is it just me, or has baby stuff gotten sweeter and cuter over the years?  Gah, I can barely stand it!

I used this checklist at Babycenter to come up with a good list of things to include inside the diaper bag, and ended up with:
  • Swaddling blanket
  • Stroller blanket
  • Plush toy
  • Bottles
  • Diapers
  • Travel wipe case
  • Diaper bags
  • Pacifiers
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Diaper cream
  • Powder
  • Lotion
  • Teether
  • Nail Clippers
  • Boogie sucker
  • Two outfits
The diaper bag is the Caprice bag from J.J. Cole.  Isn't it lovely?  Just like the baby supplies, even diaper bags have gotten better over the last six years.  So many features that I never had.

Like stroller grips?!  Say what?  So cool!

And a front pocket for all of mommy's things, like a phone and cards so you only need to take one bag everywhere.

Of course a matching changing pad is the icing on the cake!

But you know me, I just wanted to organize the baby goodies.  It had pockets around the entire perimeter of the inside {and a total of ten pockets inside and out}, which I used to divide out the diapers and wipes, lotions and potions, bottles and personal needs.

I wasn't sure if the rest would fit, so I just rolled everything {vs. stacking so it would be simple for her to take things out and put things in without digging}, and it all fit beautifully.

Now she can check one more thing off of her "to do" list and be that much more excited to welcome her baby girl in a few weeks!

The sweet peeps over at J.J. Cole are also hoping one of you will have fun organizing your new diaper bag, as they are this week's giveaway sponsor!

  • Spacious interior with multiple organizational compartments
