Lifecolor Diaper Bag Review

+ What’s in my Diaper Bag

I’m sure I can’t be the only expectant mother who was so excited to pick out, and fill my diaper bag.

for some reason it made everything feel so real.

I knew I wanted one that was a backpack style and was planning on getting a Bag Nation backpack. A friend of mine has one so I was able to get my hands on it. My husband liked it, and it certainly had lots of pockets so I added it to our baby registry.

Target had a few decent options but I felt like most of them were just one giant pocket and hard to get into them.

My due date rapidly approached and no diaper bag appeared, and I was about to order it when my MIL showed me a few different ones she found on OfferUp. The one that stood out the most to me was the Lifecolor bag, so I started googling it and watching reviews.

I was intrigued by it, and definitely liked how stylish it was. Plus it was half the price of the Bag Nation backpack, and I’m always down for saving money.

I was a bit nervous about what my husband would think, but I showed it to him, and he actually liked it. He also said it was my decision because he’s sweet like that, but I wanted one he wouldn’t feel weird carrying.

I’ve been using it for two months now, and I really like it!

Cost wise, it’s definitely more budget friendly than most, even it’s twin style bags made by HaloVa and Pipi Bear.

What I like about this diaper bag…

  • The size is manageable. It’s not huge, but I also feel like it holds a lot without being crammed full. I don’t know how it would do if you’re using it for two kids, which could be an issue, but I feel like it could be possibly be doable. Unless you’re a major over-packer…

  • The top is rigid, and stays open. You know how most backpacks open and then basically collapse on themselves? This one has some kind of boning in it and the top opens nice and wide.

  • Several Interior pockets. There are 5 pockets in the main compartment, two large ones on the side, two smaller ones on the front side, and a small zipper pouch on the back.

  • The backpack is deep, but the pockets only go halfway down. That might seem odd, but the backpack is nice and deep, so there’s plenty of room for the pockets without them being bottomless holes, plus it gives more room in the rest of the bag.
  • Back zipper to the bottom of the bag. I didn’t think this was that cool until I got the bag. I keep my wallet at the bottom so I never have to dig…I just pop open the back zipper and BAM. There it is. It also makes it impossible to get my wallet out if I’m carrying the bag on my back.

  • Wet pouch. On the inside of the back zipper pocket is a waterproof pouch for wet clothes and such. I haven’t used it yet, since I just put soiled clothes in a little bag until I get home, but it’s nice for if you run out, or just want to conserve trash bags.
  • It’s water resistant. Babies. Toddlers. Klutzy moms. Need I say more? It’s super east to wipe with a washcloth if you get it dirty, which is nice.

  • There’s plenty of room in the very front outside zipper pouch. I’m not bottle feeding anymore, but when I was, I would keep a few bottles in there, as well as a bunch of other stuff and it all fit nicely. Now I keep Tylenol, deodorant, and diaper trash bags in the insulated pockets.

  • Outside pocket for wipes. Frees up room inside, which is always helpful.
  • Pocket for water bottles/sippy cups. This was a must for me. Some bags have zippered pouches on the sides for sippy cups, but won’t fit mom’s water bottle. Fellow moms know how much water we need in a day, and if I have to carry a water bottle separately as well as diaper bag, and car seat, you can bet it wouldn’t happen. It’s a pretty large pocket, and when the bag isn’t super full it can fit mine and my husband’s 20 oz Hydro flasks.

  • Strap for your keys. I really like that it has this. No one likes digging through their bag for their keys, so when you get out of the car just attach them to the strap and never have to dig again!

  • It’s cute. Mamas…there are days where makeup and cute hair just don’t happen. But there’s something about throwing on a cute, comfy outfit and a stylish diaper bag that can make you feel less…meh. I’m a firm believer in not always sacrificing style just because you have a baby and are tired.I’m also a firm believer in comfy pants and tank tops. Balance.

Cons:

I honestly can’t think of many, but possibly…

  • The size. Like I said, it works great for one baby + mom, but it might be too small for multiple little’s.
  • It’s a backpack. The nature of backpacks is that they can become a bottomless pit. I feel like this one does a good job of keeping everything in it’s place, but if you’re just really picky, it could be an issue for you.
  • There are no stroller straps. This one is definitely a bummer. Although I have yet to use my stroller because I use the JJ Cole front carrier, (review coming soon), and throw the bag on my back. It can fit in the bottom of a stroller unless you already have that filled up.

Other than that I have no issues with it!

When Amiya starts teething and being more mobile, I’ll swap some stuff out, but for now, that’s what I always have in my diaper bag.
