Searching for the perfect diaper bag for mama and baby? Having a bag that is fun, fashionable and functional for both you and your new addition makes life so much easier in those first few years!

The outside front of the Mama & Baby Bag features two elasticized pockets and two flat pockets for those things that you need close at hand. On the back side, you’ll find a large zippered pocket to keep important documents and records safely contained. Just below the strap, a side pocket holds mom’s cell phone within quick reach. The tie-on strap easily adjusts to exactly the right length, from shoulder bag length, to stroller bag, to messenger bag. The strap is designed to be worn folded in half over the shoulder or unfolded for comfortable wear when worn across the body.

Inside, a divider separates mom’s things from baby’s. Mom’s side features a divided pocket with compartments for a pen or pencil, business cards and notes. On baby’s side, you’ll find three elasticized pockets to separate diapers, wipes and changing pad.

Perfectly-sized for moms who use cloth diapers or disposables—not too big, not too small--the finished dimensions of this bag are 16" X 13" X 4".

Patterns and instructions are also included for a changing pad with hidden waterproof layer and a zippered wet bag.
