Lugging around a diaper bag while trying to hold your baby at the same time can be difficult. The Sidekick Bliss makes this job simple by being both a diaper bag and baby carrier in one!
I was excited to try out this versatile bag/carrier. When I took it out of the box I immediately noticed the high quality of the bag’s material and the striking pink color. It was beautiful! The instructional brochure was located in the back pocket of the bag. I was pleasantly surprised to see not only written instructions but a picture to go with every step. This was especially nice for me, as I am a visual learner! After looking through the instructions, I opened the bag and found a matching changing pad and insulated tote with a snap-button strap.
As I took out the contents of my usual diaper bag, I was a little disappointed to note that the Kemby bag was not large enough to hold all the belongings I usually keep in my bag. I opted to put only the most important of items in the Kemby— a burp cloth, extra baby clothes, my wallet, diapers and a wipes container. After assembling everything into the Kemby, I got my baby and tried the carrier part of the bag. I had a difficult time balancing the baby while getting the strap on my shoulder adjusted, but once I felt the baby was secure, I walked around and really liked how the bag felt. I first thought having so much weight on my shoulder would hurt, but the Kemby shoulder strap has a removable pad that keeps the strap from digging into your shoulder. I would not want to wear the bag and baby for a long period of time, though.
Overall, the Kemby Sidekick Bliss is a great invention! The bag is durable, and the fabric can be easily cleaned. The little extras of the changing pad and tote make it even more impressive. My only fault with the bag is the small size of the interior. I would not use this bag as my everyday diaper bag, but would definitely take it along on trips where I would be carrying my baby. I would definitely recommend this bag to parents of older babies, as the bag is designed for babies with good head control. The bag can also hold a child up to 35 lbs, thus enabling the bag to be used up through the toddler years. The Kemby Sidekick Bliss also comes in 3 colors: grey, yellow, and pink.
