Coral Tree: Diaper Bag

Coral Tree Diaper Bag

Many of my friends and fellow shoppers have asked me where I got my  Diaper bag.

Anyone who has been following my blog long, could probably guess...

It's a Coral Tree bag.

Being one of the first to test out this bag has been an honor, and I love that it is unique, and so very very versatile. I often take it out shopping ( as my purse) even when I don't have baby in tow. Heck, with the pockets in this bag, I would even venture to say that any photography aficionado would find this as a useful camera bag..but I digress, this is a diaper bag..and what a diaper bag it is.

This bag is made from a 100% cotton duck (medium weight) with a modern floral print in grey, and soft aqua. The interior lining and pockets are made with 100% cotton (light weight) in white and aqua. Heavy duty stainless steel rings are used for the handles and flap.

The  bag is roomy (Height - 14" , Length - 20", Depth - 9") without being overly large and cumbersome. It easily fits in the basket of my Chicco Stroller, and the gathered straps fit and stay comfortably over my shoulder. No falling strap syndrome with this bag.

The bag is easy to close by threading the fabric flap through the O rings. I like that this bag closes with a flap rather than a zipper, because let's face it, we all tend to over stuff a bag from time to time. The flap allows for the bag to stay shut, even when overflowing with sweatshirts, towels etc.

Easy close: thread belt through loop closure
My absolute favorite thing about this diaper bag is the amount of organized space it holds. The sides are lined with pockets of varying height and width. Perfect for bottles, changes of cloths, diapers, wipes, keys, wallet, camera,pacifiers, sunscreen.... you get the picture.
Multiple pockets and a large open main area
Even with the pockets packed full of your necessities, there is room in the main compartment for a small blanket, a sweatshirt or two..or even better, a Coral Tree changing clutch.  The changing clutch ( sold separately) folds out to provide a soft changing mat with two pockets that can house a pack of wipes and a few diapers. By using the changing clutch ( which conveniently fits in the bottom of the bag) in combination with the bag, I've freed up two pockets in the bag for other goods..These days, it's extra burp cloths for all.that.drool!

Eight roomy pockets full of goodies, and the bag still has space!
