The Petunia Pickle Bottom City Carryall is the perfect bag for a new mom like myself who loves to keep everything organized and be prepared for anything that comes up throughout the day. It’s very functional. It has many organizational pockets, is very spacious, and includes a built-in changing station.
There are multiple carrying options. It can be carried using tote handles, over the shoulder, or with a messenger strap. While all of the carrying options are great, my favorite is the messenger style option. As a new mom I think it will be great to be able to carry the bag and be hands-free in order to do everything needed with the baby.
The City Carryall is just the right size, with more than enough storage space both on the inside and outside of the bag. The interior portion of the bag has two bottle pockets, a zippered pocket, and two additional storage pockets. The exterior part of the bag has two outer bottle pockets and two pockets on the back for extra storage. All of these various storage options are great for storing everything that I would need for a short day away from home shopping, running errands, or for an overnight visit with family and friends. The inside of the bag is water resistant which is really nice and eases my mind of spilling anything from bottles or snacks that I may bring along for the baby.
The bag has a couple of functional accessories that work great for an on-the-go mom. The best accessory is the built in changing station with a detachable changing pad. The changing station includes two pockets to help organize all necessary items for changing baby when away from home. The included wipes case is small, but I think that it’s the perfect size for a short day out around town. As a mom who likes to go places, whether running in local community races, attending festivals, or just out shopping, the changing station makes it easier to do all of these things with no worries about changing the baby in a clean space.
Overall I like the style and organization of the City Carryall. I think it will work well for me whether I’m just out shopping with the baby or need to take an overnight trip. The many storage options are great. However, if going overnight I would need a larger wipes case. The included case is too small for anything other than a short trip. My favorite function of the bag is the changing station because I like knowing that I can change the baby anywhere. This is a great bag, and I would recommend it to a friend.
