Make a Change Baby Bag
Great...while it lasted
My mom bought this for me as a birthday present while I was pregnant with my fraternal twin girls. I had researched extensively and told her that this was the bag I wanted. When the bag arrived I was thrilled and excited to be able to use it. Fast-forward to now...my twins are 6 months old. The positives first: bright and beautiful colors, wipeable inside, the fold-out changer is very convenient, side pockets came in handy for sippy cups for my older girls(I breastfeed the twins), nice size--occasionally was a little cramped for me w/twins, but for one baby, definitely enough space, inside pockets were good for desitin cream, lotion, and to hold a roll of those bags for dirty diapers, outside zip pocket good to hold a dirty outfit. Now the negatives- overpriced- but was a gift for me, so I guess I shouldn't mention that, everything gets a bit jumbled in the large main area inside, after I washed the color didn't seem quite as vibrant( and I've only washed it once after a coke catastrophe and followed all directions), finally biggest negative is that, as a previous reviewer mentioned, after 6 months of careful, not rough use the hard plastic piece that is sewn into the bottom is ripping through the fabric on each corner. I guess that is probably not noticeable to others since its on the bottom, but it annoys me. I just feel like for the price my mom paid, this bag should last longer. I will continue to use it until it shows obvious wear, but am irritated since I know it is falling apart on the bottom corners. I do plan to contact VB customer service about it and will notify ya'll if they help me out in any way. At this time, I would advise that anyone thinking about purchasing this bag only do so if they find an amazing deal, b/c it just didn't last. P.S.~ I do have a Bible-cover and a kiss-lock slim pouch from VB that have held up very well for over a year. I had one other purse from VB that after using and washing 2-3 times was fraying on the handles in a year's time.

AMAZING BABY BAG
This bag is so smart and functional and not to mention SPACIOUS! I had the original baby bag also in 2008. I loved it as well, but am very excited about all the upgrades the Make a Change Baby Bag has. First of all, the roll out change pad is genius. It makes changing so fast, all I need to do is grab my bag, unzip and my changing station is at my finger tips. When you roll it out, it has 2 big pockets for wipes, diapers and ointments. An added bonus is that the changing pad snaps off for washing! Also, there is a very roomy side zip pocket on the other side which I put all my stuff in (wallet, keys, phone) and it doesn't affect the inside pockets - perfect! Inside the actual bag, the whole surface area is wipeable for easy cleaning and there are 6 pockets to keep everything neat and organized. I literally fit everything I need from feeding supplies, snacks, outfits, toys, blankets, first-aid and medicine, and more. The top zips to keep everything snug inside. I can not say enough good things about this bag. Wearing the bag, it is not bulky or too long. it hits comfortably right at my hip. This is a quality bag and you will not be disappointed. Vera Bradley you got it right with this genius bag. Thanks!!

The Perfect Diaper Bag
As soon as I found out I was pregnant I knew I wanted a Vera Bradley diaper bag. I sat in front of the computer debating for months on which ones I wanted. I didn't want it to scream diaper bag but I wanted it to function as a diaper bag perfectly. When I finally placed my order I felt like I was taking a shot in the dark because I really didn't know exactly what the bag looked like, and sure I can read dimensions but it doesn't give a good image in my head.
When I got the bag in the mail I was pleased. It wasn't until I packed it with all of the goods that I stepped back and said "I LOVE THIS!". It fits everything perfectly and the shape is very flattering to the bag. It's flat enough to put under the stroller, and the straps are long enough to be thrown over my shoulder is strapped around an umbrella stroller (while watching it of course).
I currently have a bottle in each outside pocket, travel wipes, a blanket, a quilt (for tummy time!), 2 extra outfits, 8 diapers, formula packets (about 30!), a container with bottle liners, 3 water bottles, and there's still some room left.
Needless to say, I love this bag. I'd definitely recommend it to someone looking for a good diaper bag!
