Okay, so I’ve been trying for almost two years to find a good diaper bag. No matter what bag I buy, I’m disappointed! Either the straps hurt my shoulder, or it was impossible to find my wallet and diapers amongst the chaos swallowed into this black hole that was my diaper bag. I needed something that fit my lifestyle as a busy toddler-chasing mama to two adventurous, high-energy little boys. I recently received a backpack style bag from Whirlwind – and I think I have finally found the bag! Here is my Whirlwind bag in the color Fog.
I love all of the design elements of this bag! From the double pockets on either side of the bag (I keep some business cards and chapstick in one, and a sippy cup in the other!), to the organized interior and included changing pad – I am just wowed. I have gotten so many compliments on it already!
Do you see that pacifier clip hanging on my key ring? I used to use that to clip my keys to my bag so I would stop dropping them in public places and prevent my toddler from throwing them away in the garbage (true story!). My Whirlwind bag has a handy key ring loop attached to a leather strap within the front pocket that I have been hooking my keys to! I love being able to easily access my keys, and safely tuck them in the pocket when we are out and about.
We are HUGE Batman fans in this house, so I always have to pack an action figure or two for trips and errands with the boys. The organization of this bag is wonderful – I can fit everything we need inside while still being able to easily access everything (even one handed).
The changing pad this is included is so thick and really padded! Most of the changing pads in my extensive collection of diaper bags are very thin and do not provide on-the-go cushioning for impromptu diaper changes like this one. It is water resistant, and fits snug in my bag.
In my live unboxing of this bag on Instagram, I was shocked by how yellow the interior of the bag really was – it’s gorgeous! I love the custom stitched labels and mesh zip compartments – there is literally a place for everything I need to take with me.
I have thoroughly enjoyed taking this bag out and about – no matter many things I pack for my boys, it never weighs me down. The straps don’t hurt my shoulders (even after an entire 3 hour trip to Legoland). I love that the backpack style is out of the way, and I can easily carry Jax on my hip when we’re out and he’s being a fussy little booger. This style of bag also helps us in adapting from just the diaper stage to the toddler stage, and even accommodates what I need for my sassy 8-year-old (like his tablet and Lego people).
This bag is pure magic for the chaotic life of a mother – I love that Whirlwind bags are designed by a mother herself, with all the thought and consideration for what others truly need from their bags! Check out Whirlwind online to grab one for yourself and make your life just. that. much. easier.
