A guest post by Kimberlee from Araya Adventures
When I was pregnant with my first child I spent hours in baby stores looking for the perfect diaper bag. I wanted something stylish that didn’t scream diaper bag from across the room yet sturdy enough to handle the inevitable spills and abuse. I went through 3 bags the first year and lamented my decisions every time, not enough pockets, too small, to cheaply made (even though I paid an arm and a leg). When I received the Oemi Baby Bag in the mail I was immediately struck by the quality and style of this bag. It fit my desire to a T.
The wide removable shoulder strap doesn’t dig into your shoulder and cause pain once you have a little weight in your bag. Having two large exterior pockets in addition to the interior pockets made my water bottle and sunglasses easily accessible.
I decided to load it up and carry it around for a week. I took a few photos of everything I fit inside with ample room to spare to toss in the toy dinosaur we never leave home without or a few coloring books and markers.
I even put a book for myself, not shown, like any mother has time to read while on the road with baby but I’m an eternal optimist and occasionally get caught with a sleeping baby in the back seat.
The only feedback I have for the makers is I wished the carrying handles folded all the way down when I was using the shoulder strap, like the grey Oemi bag does, but it’s such a small critique it wouldn’t prevent me from buying a bag and clearly, highly recommending it any mom.
For me, I love the brown Oemi Baby Bag and they certainly have the done the tone perfectly but if it’s not for you they make it in a few different colour options and if I was feeling bold I might even have chosen the Icelandic blue for a little bit of wow factor.
As you can probably already tell I love this bag because it works for my life now but I can see it well into my future as well. The best part was getting positive comments from strangers who would not believe it was a diaper bag when I told them. So look no further this may just be the bag for you. Check them out at Oemi Baby to decided for yourself.
