Ju-Ju-Be Review - Be Prepared and B.F.F Diaper Bags


When I was first introduced to Ju-Ju-Be, I was working at a baby boutique and a rep came in to tell us about this new brand. I was really impressed, Ju-Ju-Be thought of everything! They put a lot of thought and effort into each bag and the styles and prints are really cute. We reviewed the Be Prepared and B.F.F. Diaper Bags. In order to test the diaper bags we put a dirty number 2 diaper in the bag over night. Let's be honest we have all left a diaper in our bags overnight. When we woke up the diaper was  disgusting, but once the diaper was taken out you couldn't smell anything in the bag. The amazing bag didn't retain any smell. I love this bag more and more with every test we do.

Our Rating: 5 out of 5 stars 







Pros:


1. I love the size! This is the perfect bag if you have multiple kids or are just an over packer like me. I love knowing that I have everything I need for any situation.

2. The Mommy Pocket is amazing! It is so organized and fits everything I need. The key clip comes on a long bungee so I always know where they are and never have to take my keys out of my bag ( I have a keyless start car). 

3.The shoulder strap is padded and is so comfortable. It is also adjustable. You can shorten it so that it fits great on your shoulder.

4. It is really cute! I got a ton of compliments!

5. All surfaces of the bag are wipeable so I can always keep it clean! And when it gets too dirty, I could just through it in the wash.

6. The insulated pockets really worked! It kept my water bottle cold all day!
 
Cons:

1. I wish the tote handles were longer then they would fit perfectly over your shoulder to make a shoulder bag. I could fit the straps over my shoulder but it was a little uncomfortable. 

2. This bag is large and is not for you if you are looking for a smaller bag. Check out the B.F.F. Diaper bag if you are looking for a smaller model.
