I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
I just had my third baby so I am no stranger to diaper bags. With my first I just used one that I randomly picked out because it was cute and cheap. I quickly learned there is so much more than just picking out a diaper bag based on looks and that you truly get what you paid for. Now I want a bag that can carry all the essentials and more, one that is easy to clean and one that is stylish while still being comfortable. The TWELVElittle Companion Backpack has everything I want and more in a diaper bag. It might very well be the PERFECT backpack diaper bag.
At TWELVElittle, they create stylish and functional everyday bags for the modern family. Here is their new diamond quilt Companion Backpack, made with soft and lightweight water resistant material.
I really like the water-resistant smooth nylon which feels plush and soft to the touch. It is both the exterior and interior lining which makes for easy spot cleaning. During a light rain I can quickly get to cover and my diaper bag won't get soaked. The leather trim gives it a stylish look that doesn't scream diaper bag.
It includes a machine-washable, water resistant, animal print changing pad that is lightly padded. It folds up nice and small and has a Velcro closure. Here is my 3 month old on it for scale.
The giant interior part includes five interior pockets for maximum organization and is even big enough for my cloth diaper stash. Here is a picture of everything I put in the main compartment and there is still plenty of room on top which is normally were I put a muslin blanket which I use for all sorts of things.
There are six exterior pockets including two insulated bottle pockets on the sides. The top pocket there above the brand name is where I keep my wallet, sunglasses, phone and van keys. Once Baby Sis starts eating foods there is plenty of room to put snacks in too.
On the bottom of the bag is a "Dirty Little Secret" pocket, which is a hidden pocket to stash away dirty items such as soiled diapers or clothes or to hide some money or your wallet.
It is of course free of harsh chemicals such as PVC and BPA. The padded backpack panel and ergonomically shaped straps are great even for a tall, plus-sized mama like myself. Now that I am older and wiser I am super picky about the diaper bag I use. This is my go-to bag when I know I will be carrying Baby Sis for hours in the carrier. I just put it on my back and forget about it. It works so well for me and still looks super cute.
The TWELVElittle Companion Backpack is a must-have for moms who seek fashion forward style, the ability to carry lots of baby items while still having maximum comfort. The spacious main compartment allows room for all baby essentials, and with multiple exterior and interior pockets, organization is as simple as it can be. You can get the TWELVElittle Companion Backpack at Nordstrom, BuyBuyBaby and Amazon.
