Out With The Old

After we first met with Tayler, we stopped at Babies 'R Us on the way home and picked up a few things, including this diaper bag.  I didn't know much about diaper bags at the time, but just wanted something simple.  We liked this one because it had an attached changing pad and bottle pockets inside.

It was all good until we started using it, and realized the functionality of the bag was not the greatest.  The attached changing pad was too small to actually use after Ellie was about a month old.  Her little head was squashed up in the bag and her bum was off.  The bottle pockets were too small to fit our Avent bottles.  And the one, giant pocket was too big and it was hard to keep things organized.

But, in spite of the challenges, it has been our diaper bag for over 6 years.  Our Avent bottles are now old and a little leaky, and I had washed the bag and cleaned up milk leaks one too many times.  Plus, Cece is old enough now that I don't carry as much stuff, so it was time to buy a purse-type bag and retire this one.

So, good-bye, diaper bag!  You represent a lot of memories.
