Before I got pregnant with Scarlett, I knew I wanted a Barrington Gift’s St. Anne diaper bag. I’ve always been obsessed with their purses and I have 2 of their regular St. Anne totes. I use them as my everyday bags and absolutely love them. When researching diaper bags, I quickly knew theirs were exactly what I was looking for. I’ve shared several sneak peeks of Scarlett’s diaper bag on Instagram and in my registry must-haves, but after actually using it wanted to share a review.
The Barrington Gift’s St. Anne diaper bag had the features I was looking for: the option to personalize, stylish, durable, a tote, light weight, has a zipper closure, lots of pockets, and a material inside that wipes clean easily. With babies, things get dirty fast, so the material that wipes clean on the inside was a must. They also have a lot of interior pockets, which is necessary to be organized and able to quickly find things. I also love that it has a clip to attach the bag to the stroller for a hands-free option.
Customization was a must for me. I love that you get to pick the bag pattern, handle color, monogram (if you want one), and stripe (if you want one). I put my own monogram instead of Scarlett’s so that I’ll be able to use it for another baby too. I love that you get to personalize the totes by picking out exactly what you want. While we don’t get out much because COVID-19 and since Scarlett doesn’t have all of her shots, I’ve quickly learned what I need to pack.
What I pack in my Barrington Gift’s St. Anne diaper bag:
- Extra onesie: I never realized how many outfit changes babies go through until we took Scarlett home. An extra onesie or outfit is a must.
- Ziplock Bag for dirty outfits
- Nursing cover: I’m pretty modest when it comes to nursing in public and feel more comfortable with a cover. This is just a personal preference.
- 1-2 Burp cloths
- Diapers: I always bring more than I think I’ll need
- A pack of wipes: I always make sure to have plenty.
- Diaper Cream
- Gripe water and/or simethicone: Scarlett is pretty fussy so I bring her medicines with me.
- Pacifier: unfortunately Scarlett will hardly take a paci anymore, but I’m carrying one in case and keep it in her paci case so it doesn’t get dirty.
- Swaddle: even in the summer I carry a light blanket for when we go inside places like her doctor’s office.
- Portable changing pad
- Chucks pad: I don’t trust public changing tables, so these are great. I also use these on her changing table at home for easy cleanup.
- Water/snacks for me: since I’m nursing, I’m always hungry and thirsty.
- Hand sanitizer/Sanitizer wipes: I never leave home without these during COVID.
I’m sure as Scarlett gets older my packing list will expand. Make sure to sign up for their emails for a 10% off coupon. You can find my review on my regular totes here. What do you carry in your diaper bag?
