Mom's Day Out
I went to the store to see this bag in person before purchasing and I was sold. I have a 1 year old and love that it can hold all my essentials plus diapers, wipes, snacks, extra outfit, and some toys! You can put as little or as much in it as you want. The inside is lined in white but you can still see the print inside through the lining and I love that it is lined because let's face it not all sippy cups are 100% leak proof! The strap is so comfortable and it doesn't dig in to my shoulder when wearing it cross body which was an issue with my Vera saddle bag. The big outside zipper pocket is huge and holds a lot and the two outer pockets are perfect for keys, cell phone, hand sanitizer. The inside pockets are a great size and hold diapers and wipes perfectly! I have received many compliments on this bag and I've only had it a few days and after using it it is my new favorite Vera bag! I got it in the ribbons color and it's so pretty and fun and I think it could be worn year round! Thank you Vera for thinking of moms with toddlers!

Love this bag !!!!
I love the roominess and all the pockets in this bag ! I am using this bag as an every day bag and it is almost perfect for that. I only wish you would make another bag exactly like this one except with a regular patterned lining and sturdier interior pockets for those of us without young children who don't need a more moisture proof lining. I had to reinforce the stitching between the two interior and exterior pockets because the white lining is so flimsy. If you could make one with a regular cloth lining so it would be sturdier, I would buy one in every one of my favorite patterns just because I like the style so much.

Not Just for Moms
This holds a lot for a work bag. Front pockets: Keys in one, Phone in the other. Back Zipper Pocket: Work Schedule and sticky notes. Inside Slip Pockets: Checkbook in one, and Eye glass case filled with Pens, Pencils, and Hi-Lighters in the other. In main compartment I have the medium cosmetic from cosmetic trio filled with travel size deodorant, lotion, tissues, first aid items etc. I also have an older style wristlet with gum, mints, chapstick, small snacks, cough drops etc. Then I have my Kindle in a sleeve, The Vera Bradley small Notebook, Kiss Me Twice with manicure items. Then I keep a smaller purse to take out to go into a store or to a meeting, currently I am using Mini Chain Bag. I would highly recommend this bag.

Not Just For Moms
I am new to the world of Vera Bradley. I was given a tote, lunch box and small purse for the recent holidays. I thought I might venture out and get something a bit bigger. This 'met' the criteria with the flap and double sided pockets. I am always surprised at how much smaller they are in person than what I venture them to be in my mind. This one over all is great. Holds all my stuff--wallet, makeup kit, camera, medications, tissues and such. Even has a nice place for my ipad. Not sure that as a mother of three I would have attempted to use this for a diaper bag when they were little. But as a purse it can't be beat. I have received numerous compliments on the Ribbons print as well as the size. Something on the outside for water bottle would be nice. Or as a baby bag perhaps a bottle. I am quite pleased with the purse, and can't wait to go further in the world of VB to find other treasures!!

Well Thought Out Wonderfully Helpful
I bought Mom's Day out bag when my girls were 2 and 4. I didn't need to carry the original Baby Bag anymore, but I still needed a bag that would hold an emergency pair of clothes, a wallet and some extra stuff for kids. I absolutely love this bag. Vera thought of everything. The best use for this bag I've found since my girls are older now is for Disney! It is the perfect size for throwing an extra jacket, umbrella, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc...The wipeable interior is great for spills. I actually like that there aren't any zipper pockets inside because it makes it easier for me to grab things when I'm in a rush. The zipper top keeps everything safe inside if I wear it on a ride. The cross-body design is the best to be hands-free.

Not big enough
I was very excited about this bag, but once I packed diapers, wipes, first aid, and my wallet in it for my 1 and almost 4 year old, it was crammed and there was no wiggle room. I prefer bigger bags anyway, but I thought this would be a good step down from the convertible baby bag based on the measurements. This would be a good bag for one toddler or two older children out of diapers. I've since gone back to the VB cargo sling and have ordered another brand diaper bag similar to the cargo sling. Which, by the way, if VB ever decided to bring back the cargo sling as a diaper bag (with taffeta lining, two large inside pockets instead of three smaller ones, and larger outside side pockets), I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Great bag for MOMS
I have had this bag in tutti fruitti since it came out. After putting this bag through a lot I will say it holds up great HOWEVER the strap bracket on the purse does not say how it should. It has not broke it is just annoying but other than that I LOVE IT!

Mom's Day Out!
Perfect bag for me! I got this in Go Wild pattern at the store which looks adorable to me and I love how it has a plastic lining inside because I spills out a lot of my son's snacks inside my bag. Even if the milk cup is leaked-proof, still it gets messy and wet on top of the spout especially if you are in a hurry you don't really have time to wipe it. I am not worried with this bag because I can just throw it in the wash but I will hang it dry though I tried not to put them in the dryer. But even that I will try not to wash them a lot because the color could fade fast. I want to enjoy them longer. The thing with this bag is you can just wipe off the inside lining to save it from being thrown in the wash a lot. I highly recommend this bag for the moms out there! or even for not moms. It is a very stylish bag not too big, not too small, it is just the right size to carry around!

Great Multi Use Bag
This is a great bag even for moms with older kids. Love the amount of room this bag has. The lining on the inside is great too I can put a water bottle in there and I don't have to worry about my bag getting wet. It's great to use as a shoulder bag or a cross body, especially when walking around amusement parks or a day of shopping with kids. Overall this bag is great and I hope will stay around for a while.

Great bag, for us busy Mom's on the go!
I just received this bag in Canyon. I only gave it 4 stars because I just received it, and I want to see how the wear & tear holds up. I like the two compartments inside the bag, but would like to see two more on the other side in the bag. Also, the bag is very roomy, and the large zipper compartment on the outside fits alot of stuff, which I need since I have a little one. I like how in the inside of the bag the lining is plastic, which is great with a little one. I can just wipe it out, if needed and the liner can be removed when I need to wash the bag. Overall, this seems to be worth the money. I would suggest if any Mom's are looking for a bag to use everyday, this is it.
