This diaper bag has storage galore, absolutely critical in a diaper bag. There were so many pockets, slots, and zippered compartments that we ran out of ideas for what to put in them (and we are a heavy packer.) The extras such as a key fob, sunglasses pocket, and lined cell-phone pocket were unique and useful details. For instance, the sunglasses pocket liner is made of materials that is actually supposed to help keep sunglasses clean! And the key fob, which is located in the bag’s “mommy pocket,” stretches, which can be handy if you’re trying to unlock your front door while holding your bag and baby. The cellphone pocket is located right in front of the bag, so you can quickly grab without digging. The bag is a nice compact shape, and even though we packed the Ju Ju Be BFF with everything we could think of, there was still room left over. On its own, the Ju Ju Be BFF weighs around 2.5 pounds. Packed full, it weighed in at around 6 pounds, which is still within the range recommended by the American Chiropractic Association.
Plus we added our own additions of bug repellant, stain remover stick, mom water bottle, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, plastic baggies, and a granola bar or two for mom thrown in. We carried the Ju Ju Be BFF through a week of play dates, trips to the park, a street fair, the grocery store, and a trip to Grandma’s house. We made sure to treat it as any mom would treat their diaper bag—it was thrown in the trunk, dropped on the concrete, and stuffed with the random extras parents are always throwing in their bag last minute (such as three plastic dinosaurs and a Thomas train).
Another must-have feature was how comfortable the bag is to carry. You can wear the Ju Ju Be BFF as a backpack, as a crossbody, as a tote by shortening the strap, or hold it by the top handle like a suitcase. Either way, the bag has enough options to make carrying a heavy load less stressful on your body. With the Ju Ju Be BFF, not only can you switch the way you carry it, the bag has memory foam on its shoulder straps.
The perfect diaper bag also has the ability to make things easy to find. The Ju Ju Be BFF has light-colored linings, as well as a wide zip-open main compartment. The bag’s dimensions are 14 inches wide by 12 inches high by 6.5 inches deep. The water-resistant material is easy to clean with soap and water as well.
|With two toddlers and another on the way, I wanted another useful and elegant changing bag that I could wear as a backpack in order to have both hands free. Until now, I have been using the Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack which I loved but it has basically fallen apart after 4 years. Teh JuJuBe BFF bag is the perfect successor even though I don't think it looks quite as elegant as the Boxy. But, it is easier to clean and more organised and easier to open. Makes finding things that much easier. I also prefer the handles and it is really comfortable to wear. The metal feet are also brilliant and despite their usefulness, most bags don't seem to have them. The BFF is of very good quality and is actually as pretty as described. Looking forward to see how it fairs when we start using it. (Posted on 13/07/2013)|
