Mommyhood: Satchel 'n Stuff

I like to be prepared … Actually, I just like items that help make preparedness possible. I am such a rattle head random woman that if I don’t have a designated satchel for all that stuff that somehow floats to anywhere and everywhere between the house and car I will lose my loose marbles and my husband won’t even know where to begin finding them …

This blogger mom might be kind of like me – I love reading her lighthearted down to earth posts – and she just shared her recommendation for a handy-dandy mom satchel (aka diaper bag) that is way outside of my price-range, mind you, and also not my preferred style. But her giveaway post prompted me to share with you, mom friends, what satchel products I’ve been looking for …

Of course, like any woman with loose marbles trying to be properly prepared, I use Pinterest. I’ve pinned a few diaperish bags that have appealing functional designs and reasonable prices.

My favorite is designed by a French family company called ikabags via Etsy – https://www.etsy.com/listing/184383225/unisex-waxed-canvas-messenger-bag-tote

Here’s a nifty industrial type carrier that I found via Amazon – http://http://www.amazon.com/Skip-Hop-Bento-Diaper-Olive/dp/B0047EH0H6/?qid=1401147116&s=baby-products&sr=1-12&keywords=skip+hop+diaper+bag&ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_12

Someone I know recommended this satchel carrier which has worked great for her – http://http://www.amazon.com/Ju-Ju-Be-Messenger-Insulated-Pockets-Zippered/dp/B00I0OZBFM/?qid=1401146477&s=baby-products&sr=1-8&keywords=ju+ju+be+diaper+bag&ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_8

Since preparedness appeals to me, I pretty much know what I like and why. But, I’ve never had to do this mom diaper diaries thing before, so help me out if you have better suggestions for satchels ‘n stuff …

    Whatever you end up getting, get something that you can get into with one hand… while you are changing a diaper, you generally only have one hand free… 🙂 also, pockets outside and in help. I always have my diaper bag stocked with 5 diapers, travel wipes, an extra change of clothes, burp cloths, a muslin blanket, tissues, pacifier and bottles. If you end up doing formula, I found that measuring the amount of water needed, making it really hot and putting it in a travel mug is awesome!!! That way you have water with you if the baby goes nuts and you need to make a bottle quick! If your not doing formula, then you don’t have to deal with that! 🙂
    You will be a great Momma!!!
    Oh!!!! Side note: get an exercise ball… it makes bouncing easier on the knees!!! 🙂
