Two Under Two Diaper Bag- JuJuBe Review

jujubeWhen BK#1 was around 6 months old I purchased this diva of a bag! I was shocked by the price, but after looking at review videos, and looking at all the stats I HAD to have it! I am a bag girl, and my little Carter’s bag  was not holding up! I knew that, in general, quality meant a higher price tag, so I sucked it up and went to my local boutique,  {Shop local! Shop Local! SHOP LOCAL! I will get into that in another post, but its phenomenal what it does for our economy to shop small business! That is another post though! But, I mean it,  either order online from a small business or go find one!}  and purchased my first Ju-Ju- Be!

I will never go back!

All contents for two under two!

I said a while back, in a previous post that I would talk about my BFF! (Literally and physically- that’s the bag’s name) This diaper bag is my bag, by toddler’s bag, AND my 4 mo old’s bag! Keep reading and you will see how!

This is our Ju-Ju-Be. The BFF – Queen Of The Nile

Lets just go over what this bag has to offer!

Front “mommy pocket” I keep MORE than I keep in my small purse in this pocket!  My contents: Notepad, pen, wallet,business cards, lipstick, sunglasses, perfume, anti- bac, tissues, vitamins (in case I forget to take them that day…it happens more times than I would like to admit), hair ties, bobby pins, and my portable phone charger.jujube

Mommy Pocket

Cell phone pocket jujube small pocket lined with super soft cotton to keep phone from getting scratched.

I always keep a cup of water for my toddler with me.

Even though my baby HATES bottles, I try to always have a pumped bottle with us, just for emergencies.

2 Exterior insulated bottle pockets– With “Thinsulate by 3M”. It keeps bottles cold for hours and warm for quite a while!

Memory foam changing pad included – Back pocket. I keep papers from the doctor, church bulletins etc. in this pocket also. It keeps them flat and unwrinkled.

It has double zippers on most pockets, which is nice for quick access, but the tinkering makes me kinda crazy sometimes. I tuck one pull inside the bag and close.

Messenger strap

Detachable and adjustable messenger strap has removable memory foam shoulder pad & can be shortened to tote strap length.

jujubeOptional shoulder strapsI only use this option! Two under two? I need all the hands I can get!

**My husband also loves that he can just throw it on his back, and doesn’t feel like he is carrying a purse.

When you open the bag, it has “Picture pockets“, but I keep small items and coupons in these pocketsjujube.jujube

Inside organization includes: 4  pockets, 3 zippered pockets & lots of  open space!jujube

Two under two requires a lot of organization period, but my diaper bag is very methodical and has some very specific items, so I thought I would share exactly what I pack in this gem, just to help you get an idea of what you might need!

I designate one back zipper pocket as another mommy pocket. I don’t want my toddler tossing tampons around the store when she decides that its time to open up and go through the diaper bag. So at least they are kind of concealed, sanitary, and away from grimy little hands! jujube jujube

In the opposite zipper pocket I keep some emergency ‘medical’ essentials. (You can purchase all of these items at Target or Babies R Us. The clippers are from babies R us, they aren’t my favorite pair, but they are pretty cool, because they have a light.)

Being a stay at home mom, we have the opportunity to visit grandparents and great grandparents a lot more than most. They typically don’t have baby essentials stocked in their medicine cabinets. So I like to have them with me just for emergencies.

I say ‘just for emergencies’ a lot, but it comes from experience! I have found I would rather have it in the bag, and not ever have to use it, rather than that one time where my toddler is losing her mind because her molars are coming in, I have tried every possible option to make her feel better, and I don’t have any Tylenol with me! jujube I haven’t used that lanolin in 3 months, but the second I take it out of the bag, I will want it the next time I’m feeding in the Target dressing room!  jujubeYou just never know when you are going to need things like this as a mommy.

jujube jujube Diapering Items- I keep some sort of diaper paste and powder in the far right open pocket for easy access. My diaper cream is dependent on how their little butts are doing. This cream is my favorite for keeping diaper rash away. (Up and up’s version of aquaphor =half the price)

jujube
I also stand up my diapers, rather than lay them flat, to make them easier to pull out.

My babies wear Up and Up diapers and wipes,  and although they are 17 months apart, they are only one size apart and their diapers look identical at quick glance. So, I separate with the wipes for easy access.jujube I recommend keeping a few diapers for each baby. Your toddler might not even need a diaper while you are out, but it is always better to be safe than sorry!

I always keep a spare outfit for both babies, two burp cloths, and a nursing cover.

jujubeI stack them on the left side with clothes on the bottom, nursing cover in the middle, and burp clothes on top.jujube

In the side left pocket, and remaining two back pockets, I keep odd and ends: Binkies, bath supplies, plastic utensils, a few hair clips, toys, and teethers. jujube

jujube
It looks a little like Tetris, but everything fits super easy!
jujube
SNACKS – ‘Nilla wafers, yogurt raisins and a fruit/veggie squeezie.

jujube jujube jujube  jujubeLast, but not least, before I leave the house I always throw some snacks in! A full toddler is a happy toddler!!!

jujubeThe bottom of the bag is structured and has luggage feet! This is super nice so your bag doesn’t get scuffed and/or ripped.

The entire bag is coated with their Teflon® fabric protector to help you wipe away any mess and prevents stains.

“Agion® treatment protects the liner by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew.”

Each corner has crumb drains, so when completely unzipped you can just shake the bag out!jujube

Annddddddd ….Drumroll please!!! It is machine Washable!!!!!! Fantastic feature all in itself, because most bags of this quality are in  a DO NOT wash category!

The only Con for this bag, is that it is pricey, and once you like it, you tend to want more. Don’t follow them on social media, or you will end up drooling and purchasing more!

Two under two is a blast! It’s a lot of work, and requires a lot of prep during nap times, but it is possible to not completely lose your mind….some days! I am 4 months in and I am learning new things every day to make life with babies a little less scary. What do you do to make life with babies easier?
