Baby Mae Mini Diaper Bag Giveaway

Diaper bags are obviously a Mom-Must-Have. With that said, mine spends most of it's time in the trunk of my car. Everything I have in it is necessary (in case of emergency) but most of the time I'm just running in and out of stores or dropping by a friends for an hour or two. So, I really don't need 10 diapers, 50 wipes, a backup outfit, two change pads, receiving blankets, etc.!

Introducing the Mini Diaper Bag... when I found these on Etsy (of course) at Baby Mae Boutique all I could think was GENIUS. There have been so many times I've shoved loose diapers and a ziploc full of wipes in my purse and thought "gee, I wish I had a tiny diaper baggy thingy-me-bopper organizer that I could throw in my purse". Fact is, us Moms usually have our arms full... between our purses, keys, and babies, there's not an extra arm (or enough muscle for that matter) for a huge diaper bag. I love, love, love my mini diaper bag. It's the perfect size for a few diapers, a small pack of wipes and your diaper cream... the essentials only.

When do I use it? All the time. As big as the basket in my Graco stroller is, when I hit the mall, between toys, Cheerios, my purse and my bags (duh, I'm shopping - where else am I going to put them?), I'd have zero room for my regular diaper bag. I can easily throw my mini diaper bag in the basket and have plenty of room for all my nonsense and the other things I "need" (my husband's finally got me thinking "do I need this?" when I hit the shops... problem is I can pretty much rationalize murder). When I have a playdate, I know that the host Mom will have a place for me to change Jane... all I need are the "essentials".


I've only had this mini diaper bag for a few days now and it's well worn in... thankfully, it's super high quality and durable so I have no worries! Plus, it's super cute (see the picture with my darling model). I love the fabric. If you're not carrying your purse (which I often don't these days - just throwing what I need in my Coach wristlet - another Mom essential if you ask me) the Baby Mae's mini diaper bag has a wrist strap which makes it easy to carry when your arms are full (the only time my arms aren't full is when I'm sleeping). It's also got velcro closure which is necessary and makes it easy for once handed diaper retrieval - if your child is anything like mine, you require all of your other limbs to hold her still.

As usual, I wouldn't brag about a product I love without giving you the chance to "steal" one yourself...

OOhhh, I love the Double Minky stroller blanket! I'm a sucker for a soft blanket, so is Andrew! :)
The mini diaper bag looks so cool too.
And of course, I voted for you!

Angelene said...

Voted! Her baby blankets are cute too - love the big bold patterns. Cute! Love the mini-diaper bag idea! It is too true - I have a huge diaper bag full of everything you listed, but to run in somewhere I almost always leave it in the car. I also love your comment about the Coach wristlet... I have also stopped using a purse after Abby was born, and now use a similar approach to your wrislet although much less stylish... ;)

I'm tired of lugging around my ugly eddie bauer diaper bag! I would love one of these cute little bags!

Kate said...

I'd love to win a mini diaper bag, because they're so cute AND practical!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Amy Butler fabric, so I would definitely pick one of those!

My Life As Mom said...

It's so funny because I was JUST thinking about one of these, the other day. I seriously need to get myself one of these. Lugging around the diaper bag is way too much work.

Problem is.. I use cloth diapers so I'm not sure how much it would hold once I put one of those diapers in it.

Regardless, I did vote and I'd love to have one of her handmade blankets, those are precious.

Kate said...

And I voted for you! :)

I really need this because now that baby is a bit older I do not need to lug everything around tha tI did when she was first born. To just go get groceries or to the bank, this size would be great

Jen Peddle said...

I would love to have a Mini Diaper Bag as baby carseat/carriers are heavy enough to lug around baby in tow. It would lighten up the load when doing errands or visits!

Jen said...

Ooo I love the fabrics she uses. The Michael Miller Disco Dots blanket is too cute!! I love to get it for our little man.
