Finding a diaper bag that is cute and functional is such a challenge as a mom. I had 5 different diaper bags with my first, yes, 5! Each one had a different purpose but none could handle it all. With my second, I chose a diaper bag that I really liked around $80 and it got about a year of use out of it. Not bad at all but it started to break down.
This time around, I was obsessed with finding the perfect bag that can last years and not break down under the pressure of a newborn, toddler, and mom life. A diaper bag that could be used as a purse if needed and you guys, I’ve finally found the golden nugget. The Lily Jade Shaylee Diaper Bag.
Shaylee Diaper Bag
I have to admit, I squealed with excitement when I opened the box. The Shaylee diaper bag was on back order so I had to wait about a month and a half for it to arrive and it was so worth it. I snagged it in Galena & Gold which is such a unique color combo that I’ve had multiple ask me about it. Most people are astounded to know it’s a diaper bag and not a purse(yet!).
I’m sure you’re thinking in your head right now, how can you use this diaper bag as a purse? Well, my friends, Lily Jade diaper bags come with a removable insert. So when you’re not using it as a diaper bag, you can, in fact, use it as a purse by pulling the insert out. Score!
However, with the insert, you have tons of pockets and nooks to stuff it full of baby gear.We will be using disposable diapers for the first two months or so but after that will be switch over to cloth diapers. Finding a diaper bag that can comfortably fit multiple cloth diapers would typically be a challenge. Currently, I’ve packed my Shaylee diaper bag full with wipes, a paci, 3 wraps, 3 outfits, bamboobies nursing pads, nipple cream, 2 extra diapers just in case there’s a mishap on the way home, and there’s still room in the bag.
I think my favorite part is the fact that all the crumbs from snackies will fall in the insert and not the actual bag. It’s machine washable too which make keeping the bag clean easy as pie.
Out of two kids, I’ve worn many different diaper bags. Ones that you throw on your shoulder like a purse, ones that you wear like a messenger bag, and ones that are backpack styles. Each one was great for different outings but none could do what the other could. Lily Jade has created an all in one bag giving you the option to wear this diaper bag how you want, any day of the week. With their crossbody strap and different loops, you can swap the way you wear it in second. The versatility of this bag is gold!
Colors & Pricing
If you’re not a fan of the Galena(silver) color like I am, Lily Jade offers this bag in five other colors(Grey, Blush, Black, Brandy, and Camel). I personally struggled to choose between the camel and the galena but eventually gave way to the beautiful silver shade. Of course, they have several other bags if you’re not a fan of the Shaylee.
Yes, these diaper bags are expensive, but you have to look at it in a different light. How many hundreds of dollars you’re willing to drop on a designer bag that you’ve had your eye on? Why would you spend any less on a diaper bag that you will use for possibly years and for more than one purpose?
The Lily Jade Shaylee, as well as their other bags, are high-quality leather bags with a current yet timeless design. They are boasting with so many perks that you should never question the price as they are the designer diaper bag of your dreams.And the bags are just pretty. Not to mention, if I added up all of the money I’ve spent on other diaper bags the cost of this bag would be a steal!
