WHY DO I NEED A BABY BAG ANYWAY?
Well all that changed as my late pregnancy sickness came in and for some reason my purse started becoming heavier. I started having to carry around my makeup for last minute weekly doctor visits I was loading my purse down with bottled lotion for my dry aching feet and water bottles stayed stocked along with vitamins, and all those extra little things you never thought you would need until now. So my purse started weighing around the 6 pound or more mark. I realized life has changed and a good diaper bag is going to be a life savor with my newborn.
I attended two Maternity fairs in the past 3 months. One which was local and one that was in a bigger city near us. I really got more information and better freebies from the local one... plus there were less people which ended up making it easier to win prizes. They also provided wonderful free classes throughout the day. The only good part about the one in the bigger city was better free food lol. Anyways at the local Maternity fair Merle Norman had a booth set up with Vera Bradley Baby bags and this new print "jazzy blooms" made me swoop in and take pictures with my iphone so I could remember what it looked like.
THE DIAPER BAG
I feel in love with the bag and waited 2 months before actually getting it because of the price $109.00. I have never spent that much on a purse but I thought that since I am having my first and since a baby bag is a must I could afford just to buy a nice one that I could enjoy.
PACKING THE BAG FOR LABOR
I have slightly stressed over what to pack. Read blogs and magazines which mostly resulted in information that covered too much. Lists and lists... one blog momma packed 3 bags and I thought that was nuts. I am not one to want to pack a lot but sometimes I do. So I decided to just throw in what I felt I might need in small doses. This is only for baby...
The front of this bag has matching changing pad! How nice and the inside of the bag is a waterproof lining!
