I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter, I was browsing through the diaper bags in the baby section and all I could think was that they were all so boring, bland and definitely NOT my style. After all, I was eighteen and carrying around a giant ugly tote covered in teddy bears wasn’t exactly on my agenda! For a while, I actually used a large purse as a diaper bag! This is where Wisey Products came in!
By the time I had my son, almost two years later, I still didn’t have a dedicated diaper bag. I usually just threw what I needed into an empty grocery sack or a reusable grocery tote. For me, it was easier, and less embarrassing, than to run around with some bag in puke-green, emblazoned with teddy bears and rattles. I had found a diaper bag I liked through a company my sister-in-law was a representative of, but I just couldn’t afford to pay what they asked for it, so grocery sacks and totes it was!
The never-ending challenge of the diaper bag only seemed to intensify when I switched to cloth diapering. Cloth diapering, although amazingly economical, didn’t always fit well in bags designed for diaper-carrying. So, again, I stuck with the grocery sacks and totes. After all, when I went places, I needed to carry three cloth diapers, a spray bottle and some cloth wipes with me. I can’t pack it all without room to do so!
When I first saw the Wisey Chic Mommy’s Bag, I was in love, although I was skeptical that it would suit my need for space! However, I loved the design and decided it was worth a try! I absolutely loved it! I had enough room in my diaper bag for three cloth diapers, the inserts for them, my earth mama angel baby bottom balm, a handful of cloth baby wipes, an empty grocery sack (for dirty diapers) and my spray bottle!
The bag, although it’s tiny and chic looking, is incredibly spacious! With several separated areas in the bag, as well as a zippered pouch, there was room for everything! Included in the bag was even a removable changing mat, making diaper changes on-the-go a breeze! I also loved that the bag could be used in a clutch fashion, or the strap could be placed on the opposite side making it a short-strap bag, capable of being worn just like a purse!
My Overall Review
Based on five factors, each ranging from one star to five stars which are then averaged out, the Wisey Chic Mommy bag received 4.4 stars!
Fulfills Purpose Well – 5 Stars
The Chic Mommy’s bag is not only amazingly stylish, but it’s spacious as well! The diaper bag was able to hold enough for my outings with baby, and with cloth diapering, not every diaper bag can meet that challenge! This bag definitely beats a grocery bag or tote any day of the week!
Design & Visual Appeal – 5 Stars
The Chic Mommy’s bag is well designed, cute, fashionable and amazing! I loved how compact is looks, but how spacious it really is on the inside! Best part of all, it’s not covered in teddy bears and ducks!
Ease of Use – 5 Stars
The Chic Mommy’s bag is very customizable and adjustable. The strap can be kept in a short loop on one side, fully extended as a purse strap, or removed altogether, making it easy to make it your own! The diaper bag is easy to open and close, and easy to pack and search through with the separate compartments and dividers within!
Affordability – 4 Stars
Most diaper bags aren’t cheap (even the ugly duck and teddy bear ones), but this diaper bag is extremely affordable at only $39! I was shocked at how low the price tag was, as I had expected to see something closer to the triple digits! This diaper bag is great and can fit any mom’s budget!
Earth Friendliness – 4 Stars
Earth-friendliness wasn’t emphasized in this product, however, it is capable of holding cloth diapers, and that’s earth-friendly! The bag works amazingly well and is quite durable, meaning it won’t need to be replaced as often as cheaper, inferior-quality bags would need to be, thus creating less waste.
