First-Time Mama-To-Be Review: Pink Lining Bramley Tote Diaper Bag

Today I am exactly 14 weeks pregnant and feeling great! Now that I’m in my second trimester I *think* I’m finally getting over the hump in terms of headaches, nausea and all the other fun stuff that fellow mamas-to-be can relate to. πŸ˜‰

Last week I had an ultrasound and it was so cool to see how much Baby Govednik (Baby G, for short) has developed. He or she was wiggling all around and waving his/her little hands and feet. It was so amazing to see!

Now that I’m in my second trimester, I’m also starting to think ahead. I know the next few months are going to fly by, and I want to be as prepared as possible with all the baby gear we’ll need. So I was beyond excited when I received my very first piece of baby gear recently – this gorgeous Cream Bows on Pink Bramley Tote diaper bag from Pink Lining!

Isn’t is so chic and stylish? I love it! And as a first-time mom, I’m sure I’ll to do my fair share of over-packing (you never can be too prepared, right!?), so when the diaper bag arrived I was so happy to see that it’s big and roomy. And to help keep me sane and organized, the water-resistant lined interior of the bag comes complete with:

– A padded changing mat and zip wet bag
– A removable (with Velcro) Thermo-insulated pocket for bottles
– Two large pockets for diapers
– Pockets to hold smart phones, keys, pacifiers, etc.
– A zip pocket
– A pen loop, an extendable key/dummy fob, and a detachable mirror

Interior look at the Bramley Tote
Changing Mat and Zip Wet Bag, which come included

The exterior of the bag is 100% cotton canvas laminated with EVA coating. I noticed right away that this will make it easier to keep clean with the inevitable baby-related stains that are sure to pop up. The exterior also has a large zippered pocket on one side and a smaller zippered pocket on the other, as well as an adjustable strap.

I can’t wait to use this pretty, practical diaper bag once Baby G arrives in February. Of course, as an over-prepared first-time mama-to-be, I will have it all stocked up and ready to go well before then. Thanks, Pink Lining!

Disclosure: I received a Pink Lining diaper bag of my choice. All opinions are my own.

  1. I love this diaper bag! It IS beautiful, with room for all the baby bounty stuff you’ll need. And you look really pretty with it, too…

  2. What a great bag! I love the style, size, and functionality. Just don’t be the mom that packs ten diapers for a 3 hour outing….but forgets the wipes!

  3. SUPER cute bag! I love the bright interior! I’m trying to figure out what to put in our bag right now too…diapers wipes….small bottle of wine? LOL

  4. I always wondered where this really cute stuff was when I had my first child almost 16 years ago. (Dear Lord, it’s been that long!) A)I’m thankful baby gear has evolved tremendously. B)You definitely can never be too prepared when packing for babies, because the one thing you can always expect is the unexpected. C)You will live out of that bag, so durability is everything. D)Most importantly, enjoy this time in your life, and take Karen’s advice about packing a small bottle of wine when you can. Those unexpected moments I referred to can end up being the best ones.

  5. So pretty! I’m thinking my 2nd oldest is having a girl (March!), so I’m going to keep this in mind. I’m calling a BOY for you, Jane…I haven’t been wrong in decades. Wonder if I will be right!?
