Pottery Barn Diaper Bags

Pottery Barn Seacliff Herringbone Diaper Tote

I have seen and tested more than my fair share of diaper bags, but I hadn't tried a new one since having my second babe. Double the diapers, changes of clothes and bottles and all the sudden I look like a mama off to war, which isn't a bad comparison. Before I leave the house, I have to check through three separate knapsacks to make sure I have everything I need.

Then, I realized with the new Seacliff Herringbone Diaper Tote ($149) that Pottery Barn Kids sent over for me to try out, I'd only have one bag to check. The black herringbone cotton-canvas is so stylin' that nobody suspects it holds one, let alone two tots' essentials. Large enough to pack my laptop, breast pump, some magazines and a few of my personal belongings, this may be the single carryall I've been searching for.

To see what else I love about the tote and the two things I wish it had,

It's an added bonus that the black twill makes it practically stainproof. And, the leather bound canvas straps don't dig into the shoulder, even with the hefty load I carry. Zippered and snapped compartments keep items buckled in and offer organization for a harried mother.

There are two things that could make the tote a tad better — a bottle compartment and a top zipper. I could easily stash a bottle in the outside compartment, but it wouldn't be able to snap it shut. The bag also has a magnetic snap closure, which is effortless, but I like the security of my goods being contained.

Overall, this is a great diaper bag. It's hip enough to pull off as a non-diaper tote, but roomy enough to use for just that and then some.
