PacaPod Designer Diaper Bags {Giveaway - Ends 6/26}

Choosing a diaper bag that is practical, durable, and stylish isn't as easy as it seems. I went through several diaper bags when Buddy was a baby, and never quite found one that I loved. This time around I'm using a PacaPod Sequoia diaper bag, and so far it's working out wonderfully. 

I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

PacaPod is home to an award-winning 3-in-1 diaper bag organizing system. PacaPod was created by mom and designer, Jacqueline Waggett, who saw a gap in the market for beautiful yet practical baby bags. These bags definitely do not look like diapers bags!

Every PacaPod diaper bag includes a feeder pod, changer pod, a separate section for parents' belongings, stroller clips, key fob, inner pocket dividers and a cross body strap. With many bag designs to choose from, there's definitely one that's just right for your busy lifestyle.

PacaPod Sequoia

This is the Sequoia bag, featuring leather, silver hardware and a lovely microfiber weave outer that is totally wipe-able. At first glance it appears to be just a gorgeous handbag. But let's take a look inside.

Upon opening the large compartment in front, there are two removable pods. The tan pod is your diaper changer pod, and the red one is the feeder pod. Everything is separate, hygienic, and super organized within these pods.

Every inch of each pod is meticulously planned out for ultimate organization so moms can just grab one and go. This makes it incredibly easy to take just the pod you need without taking the whole bag. The changer pod has labeled areas for diapers, wipes, diaper creams, hand sanitizer, an extra change of clothes, and first aid supplies.

The feeder pod is insulated and has places for utensils, hand wipes, and bottles specifically. Since I'm breastfeeding and baby girl isn't eating solids yet, for now I'm using it for extra burp cloths and breast pads.

Each pod has a strap so each can be taken out and hung from the stroller handle or wherever you need it. The changer pod also includes a changing pad, easily stored on the backside of the pod. The feeding pod can be worn as a mini backpack too. I imagine this would work really well for sending young kids with snacks or a lunch to daycare also. Buddy is hoping I'll let him use it for his snacks during his summer classes. 

The top zipper grants access to "my purse". This large pocket goes the whole depth of the bag, and has plenty of room for my wallet, glasses case, makeup bag, snacks, an extra shirt and plenty of room for more. I love having all my normal non-diaper bag items in it's own section of the bag. No one likes digging around in their bag, right?!

The Sequoia also has a small zippered pocket on each side. My smartphone fits perfectly in one, and my keys go in the other if I don't have them clipped to the outside of the bag already.

The stroller clips have been ah-mazing. I use them every time I use my stroller and have found this to be extremely convenient for quick access to the bag when necessary. Since it's also my purse, my wallet is within reach when shopping, instead of down below in the stroller's basket.

The Sequoia has a clutch handle and removable shoulder strap also. I prefer to use the strap for even weight distribution in the cross body carry, but the clutch handle is really nice when maneuvering the bag in and out of the car. Check out the video below for another look at this unique bag:

This diaper bag is truly amazing and super durable. The quality is exquisite and beautifully done. I feel a bit fancy owning this bag! Although there is so much to say about the Sequoia, what I love most about this bag is that anyone can quickly access anything inside because it's so organized. Diapers and snacks aren't mixed in the same area, and my wallet isn't hiding in a onsie or a under a burp cloth. Everything has a place!

PacaPod Samui

Another beautiful design from PacaPod is the Samui bag, available in two stunning prints. This bag is part of PacaPod’s collection of “travel lite” bags containing super packable pods that fold flat to create even more space for baby gear. The flat pack feeder, changer pods and mat can be easily cleaned and folded away when not in use to provide unrivaled adaptability when traveling with tots. All of this combined with the super lightweight construction and a choice of striking, playful prints, makes it easy to carry baby’s basics in style and with confidence.

The vibrant Samui prints are inspired by the iridescent colors and prints from Thailand “Koh Samui” adding a welcome pop of color for fashion conscious mums on the move! Casual glamour and a touch of cosmopolitan chic collide to bring forth this beautiful cavernous bag with an organized interior moms really need.

The Samui features an over-the-shoulder carry handle, top loading section with sippered parent pocket, a flat pack changer pod, flat pack feeder pod, and a changing mat. This bag will also fit most laptops when the pods are removed. Versatility at it's best!

I like the Oban-elephant; It's so versatile, it truly looks like the only diaper bag you would every need. I love that PacaPod bags have separate compartments for diapers and feeding supplies; very useful for cloth diapering moms.
