Messenger Baby Bag
Love this great everyday bag!
As a mom of 4 I've had tons of diaper bags and this is my all time FAVORITE! The description forgets to mention wat I like to call my "mom pockets" the two under the flap (keys, phone) and the long zippered pocket on the back (iPad!). All together there are 12 compartments and not one that isn't perfect for something! My oldest in diapers wears a size 7 and even they fit in the pockets! The strap is wonderful! Easily adjustable to quickly switch fom shoulder bag, to cross body, to the perfect height to hang on my stroller. Only con was after 3 months of daily use the corner of where the flap attaches started to lossen but my local VB store replaced it immediately and I'm hoping it was just a defective product :-)

Great "hands free" Bag
This is my first Vera Bradley bag and I love it. I am extremely happy with the quality in every way. Beautiful, vibrant colors (I have the Plum Crazy print), thick fabric and wonderful design. This baby bag is perfect if you want something to hold the essentials and not be overwhelmed with a huge bag. I have two children, a 3 year old and a newborn and this is the perfect size for me. If you like to pack everything including the kitchen sink you may want to go for something roomier. The size isn't overwhelming on my 5'4" petite frame. I love the amount of pockets and size of each. I also like the interior boning and support which helps the bag keep its shape.

A good everyday bag
I really wanted a cross body baby bag so I could have my hands free while carrying my son and not have the bag fall off my shoulder when bending over etc. This is a really great quality bag just like every other Vera I have purchased and I appreciated the matching changing pad. It does have a lot of pockets inside and out, so all of his stuff is easy to find and keep organized. The main flap closes with 2 magnets so it occasionally flies open when I'm tossing it into my car. It isn't really that big inside. Don't get me wrong, it holds everything I need most of the time (trips to the store or my parents etc.#, but if I am going to be gone most of the day and I need take a lot of stuff with me #like a small cooler for his bottles), I can barely get the magnetic flap to connect to the bag to close it. Overall great baby bag for everyday, but if you are on the go a lot, you may want to considered a different bag.

I like this bag for the most part. I really wanted a cross body bag and this one does the job. I wish it was just a little bigger. I have a large portable changing mat (I use the one it came with at home), a few extra outfits, some diapers, wipes, spit rag, and my wallet. I really can't fit anything else. It has outside pockets that can fit two bottles, which is nice.
I might try a different portable changing mat because that seems to be what is taking up the majority of the space in the bag.
Overall I really like this bag and would recommend it.
