I thought a stylish, designer, affordable diaper bag would be next to impossible to find; especially one that met the needs of a new mom on the go. Enter the Petunia Pickle Bottom Hideaway Hobo diaper bag. Boy, does this bag have style and class!
I love the bold design and purse-like appearance. The outside is vinyl, which is durable and easy to clean. The handles are made with vegan leather and silver chain and seem very sturdy. The zipper pocket on the front is perfect for Mommy items like lipstick, keys or phone.
There are several pockets on the inside. There are two on either side perfect for diapers, wallet, etc., and one on either end for a baby or water bottle. Included with the bag is a sleek looking black wipe container and a plush polyester changing pad. The changing pad that you normally see in a bag seems cold and uncomfortable, so I was pleased to see this thick, padded one. My little one seems to enjoy it, too!
The bag closes with a simple magnetic snap closure. It is nicely sized to hold all you and your baby need while out and about. Although stroller straps aren’t included with the purchase of the bag, they are available for purchase on the Petunia Pickle Bottom website.
While I love this bag, if I had to find something to complain about, it would be that I do wish the handles were just a little bit longer. It fits more comfortably on my arm than my shoulder, which makes it frustrating to get into with one hand while balancing baby. It’s a little difficult to throw on my shoulder while balancing the car seat.
The Hideaway Hobo fits my needs as a first time mom who’s constantly on the go. I know that even if I don’t get to fix my hair or put on makeup, at least my bag looks good!
