Backpack Baby Bag
Beautiful bag, smart design, comfortable fit.
I ordered the Backpack Baby Bag for our upcoming trip to Chicago. I figured since we will be doing a ton of walking on Michigan Ave and jumping on and off the subway, I'd prefer something with a more secure closure and a more snug and comfy backpack fit than our Petunia Pickle Bottom Covertible Backpack. I thought I'd like this VB backpack, but I LOVE it!
It feels great on and of course looks fabulous. The design is well thought out with a front changing station with two good size pockets for diapers and wipes. The main compartment has four mesh pockets and the entire interior is lined with a leak proof material, which I love. There is a bottle pocket on the outside of the bag on each side. It has a nice, thick handle on the top io the bag for easy pick up and grab and go. My only complaint is the bag could be a tad bigger. My son is a big eater at,onlynteo months and goes through burp cloths and outfits like there's no tomorrow, so we have to carry a lot of formula and bottles, and a lot of cloths and 2-3 sets of clothes. We fill this bag to the max for sure! Other than that, this bag is perfect! I bought it for our vacation, but I have a feeling we will be using it around town at home we well! Thanks Vera Bradley for making such practical, fun products!

Hands free = Hassle free
When I saw that Vera was coming out with a backpack diaper bag I was so excited. First and foremost I wanted something that would be hands and shoulder free. Nothing like trying to lug two car seats to the car and a shoulder diaper bag comes right off the shoulder. So lets go through the other pros of this bag. I love the two outside bottle holders and the front slip pocket. I really love the diaper changing station built into the bag. It unzips all the way and there is a changing pad there and the two pockets are perfect for diapers and wipes. That is genius! Since its a backpack its sits upright on the changing station and the unfolded flap is a little extra cushion for the baby. In the main compartment I love the 4 mesh pockets along the back. One pocket for my stuff and three left over for the baby stuff. Today I did a quick run to the store and was able to put my bag of groceries in the main compartment. Also the backpack slides nicely into the stroller basket and remains standing up straight so its easy to grab back out. Also all the insides are coated plastic for wiping ease.
The cons... I really wish they had made a zip pocket on the back for my wallet, instead of having to put into the main compartment. I also wish they had put two more bottle holders along the sides in the inside main compartment as well. Overall this bag has the quality of a Vera along with making it a lot easier to be out and about with my twins.

Could also be used for school!
The measurements are the same as the laptop backpack so I'm guessing you could use this one as a book sack as well?
I absolutely LOVE these new baby colors and hope they offer them in all VB products! If not, I'll certainly be getting this backpack in Tutti Fruitti instead of the laptop backpack! I might even buy one in Lilli Bell too just because its so darn cute!
