This diaper tote is large and in charge—and thank goodness for that, because some of us need all the help we can get.
Always losing your keys, pacifiers and burp cloths to that black hole inside your diaper bag? Not to worry, Dawn is an organizational master. With 3 exterior pockets, 6 interior pockets, an inside key holder (which I personally use for hanging paci clips) and a light-beige, roomy body, everything has a place and can be easily found. Of the interior pockets, there’s a large zipper pocket, a very roomy, elastic snap-strap open pocket (which gives quite a bit of flexibility for maximum filling), and 4 elastic interior pockets, two of which are perfectly sized for diapers. Not only does she sizzle with structural integrity, this bag is so hot, she’s cool: An insulated bottle tote will keep your baby’s bottle at whichever end of the temperature spectrum you need it to be.
Have to pull a fast one? Dawn’s portable, changing pad is equipped with a front mesh pocket for storing diapers, wipes and creams—crucial for changing on the run. It’s also super cushy for baby’s tushy. Speaking of diaper changes—as a facilitator in the Separation of Clean and Soiled, Dawn keeps those dirty nappies and clothes from influencing the rest of the gang by including a handy wet-pouch for containment.
One of my favorite perks Dawn provides is a matching clutch that can be used as a mini-purse. It’s so cute I use it even when flying solo, sans baby. It has numerous interior credit card slots and an inside zipper pocket for stashing cash (and the under-eye concealer I’ve become addicted to since giving birth). Thanks to these little details, you won’t have to carry both a purse and a diaper bag.
But if you still feel bogged down and want to go completely hands-free, Dawn adapts to the situation at a moment's notice with a detachable, cross-body strap that can be adjusted for length—although I do not recommend using this feature for long periods of time if you're sporting swollen, tender ta-tas. Ouch! That's when the coordinating stroller straps come in handy—simply hook her onto your baby’s ride.
No need to cry over spilled milk: Dawn's exterior is made of easy-to-clean PVC-free faux leather and her interior lining is totally water-resistant. (She'll never “wet” you down … Sorry, I couldn’t resist!) Yes, she may leave you high and dry, but Dawn will not disappoint when it comes to looks. This style-conscious beauty, blessed with many high-end details, will win you many compliments even on your most frumpy-feeling days. She's a perfect 10 in the diaper bag world: practical, classy, and made to last via durable construction.
