When Max was first born I thought I could get by without a diaper bag. I managed to get through the first couple of months without one, but there comes a time in every new parent's life when a big bag with lots of pockets, and pockets within pockets, is an absolute must. The Warm Milk Baby Hobo diaper bag was thoughtfully designed my momtrepreneur Patricia Peters and her talented (and adorable) clan.
The most notable feature of the Baby Hobo is that one side of it contains a built-in super soft cresent shaped nursing pillow. Patricia first came up with the idea when she had to use a regular bag for support while nursing in a doctor's waiting room. When you're traveling or on the go with a nursing baby this is a huge plus. Before I had this bag, nursing in restaurants and on planes, etc was a challenge. It meant staring at a nice full plate without a free hand to eat. It meant backaches while holding a sleeping 12 pounder. The built-in pillow allows you to nurse as comfortably as you would at home.
This bag also turned out to be a lifesaver on our first plane trip because it fits upright nicely under the seat in front of you for easy access. I like to use the changing pad to roll up diapers and a travel pouch of wipes. The generously sized strap is perfect for throwing over the stroller handle. We also love the pockets (I counted 20 total). There is plenty of space to neatly store toys, books, a change of clothes, burp cloths, snacks, bottles, tissues, sanitizer, wallet (*inhale*) keys, nipple cream, diaper cream, lip gloss, water, and of course...diapers and wipes. Once baby is old enough to nurse comfortably sitting up, the pillow can be removed to free up even more space. Max is now old enough to nurse sitting in my lap without the pillow, but we still bring it along for naps and the trips.
Aside from the intuitive design and funtional pillow, I like the simple understated design. It doesn't scream diaper bag and it's certainly one that papa can carry too.
