Petunia Picklebottom Boxy Backpack Review and Giveaway!

2 Nov

I was turned onto Petunia Picklebottom (PPB) by my cousin who swore that all of my diaper bag problems would be solved if I tried a PPB Boxy Backpack.  At the time I was using a designer diaper bag that looked great – but had NO functionality.  It was impossible to get things from the bottom of the bag, there was NEVER enough room, and I could no longer carry the bag and my son at the same time (it kept falling off my shoulder).  After an afternoon trip out with my son when I  had to empty the entire bag just to find the triple paste container, I went to PPB’s website and ordered a Boxy Backpack.

It was the best decision I could have made.

– I have no problem when it’s time to change him – the front compartment makes finding diaper products a cinch
– the 2 pockets on the outside are perfect for his sippy cup and my bottle of water
– the main compartment is HUGE – and has a flap that velcros to keep everything safe and secure when I am tossing it into the car
– my favorite part of the bag are the shoulder straps.  For a mom that is on-the-go, likes to stay active, and has a son that moves a lot while he’s in my arms, having both hands free is HEAVEN!

Other features:
Hands-free backpack or long messenger strap 
Built-in changing station with detachable changing pad 
2 large diaper/wipes pockets 
4 bottle pockets 
2 organizational pockets 
Small pacifier pocket 
Detachable dirty diaper pouch 
“No more digging” key clip 
Water-resistant liner 
PPB monogrammed wipes case 
Dimensions: 13 X 13.5 X 5.5 in.
