Finding the perfect diaper bag has always been a struggle for me. Throughout my five years of motherhood, I’ve made my way through countless bags. I’ve tried everything from traditional nylon bags to high-end styles, but there’s always been something that just didn’t work for me—until I discovered Lily Jade.
Like a lot of women, Meggan Wood was a purse enthusiast on the hunt for the perfect diaper bag when she was expecting her first child. She wanted something fashionable that would also meet the needs of a new mom, and when her search came up short, the Lily Jade brand was born. I got the chance to put Lily Jade’s Caroline bag to the test, and I’ve been strolling around town with it for a little over two weeks. The list of things I love about this bag is long, so I’ll focus on a few key favorites.
Diaper bag storage is always an issue for me! I have multiple small items like toys and feeding tools that always end up at the bottom of my bag, inaccessible at the time of need. Spending ten minutes searching through my bag is frustrating for baby, for me and for my husband who is left holding a screaming child. Lily Jade has solved my diaper bag storage dilemma with a master organization system. Each bag has two wide openings for all of your larger items and a removable, washable Baby Bag with 14+ usable pockets for smaller odds and ends. You heard me right—14 pockets! It doesn’t get better than that!
I love that with a Lily Jade bag, I can go hands free. With two kids in tow, I don’t have a spare hand, so the detachable shoulder strap is extremely handy! Other styles are available with a backpack option.
I saved my favorite feature for last! All of Lily Jade’s diaper bags are created from superior leathers and fitted with soft but durable inner liners, so they’re ultra luxurious. I can carry the bag to play dates and running around town with the kiddos, but since it looks like a normal purse, I can also use it on date night or on those rare occasions when I get to sneak away and shop alone!
