Recently I had the chance to try out O Yikes slingback diaper bag. A a mom who is always on the go with 2 kids I am forever in search of the perfect bag that looks chic yet meets my needs as a mother. I currently have 2 diaper bags 1 black and 1 brown. Both bags are trendy, stylish, functional and big!!! These are not the bag for a walk to the park or stroll around the zoo. For a while now I have been eyeing several sling bags but none seemed big enough to meet my needs.
I have found what I am looking for in the O Yikes slingback diaper bag. The slingback style makes it easy to wear when I am on the go. When the weather is nice I walk the 1.5 miles to the library with my girls once a week and cramming bag under the seat of the stroller just wasn’t cutting it. I tried out my O Yikes bag when I took the kids to the park recently. It was able to hold diapers for 2, wipes, changing pad, sippy cups, snacks and a few things for me. Even with all of that crammed inside the bag was not bulging awkwardly. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it stored all of my stuff. The bag came with a changing pad that stores nicely in the front pocket and a bottle holder as well as an accessory bag. While I am out of the bottle stage the accessory holder was nice for a few things for me. I am a fan of the outside bottle pocket so I can easily reach a sippy cup when one is needed so I appreciated this feature on the bag. I also like the cell phone holder on the strap, this is beneficial when you are active so you don’t have to take the bag off to answer a call.
While my husband is not a fan of the color ( I chose raspberry and orange) even he said he would wear the bag if it were in a more masculine color. Overall I have to say I really like this bag, it is not an everyday bag for me, I demand much more room, but for a bag to be used while active I think it is great. My only concern with this bag is that it is not able to be worn while wearing a baby. I am a big fan of baby wearing so this is a bit of a problem for me. The solution though is to put it under my stroller. Because of the nice square shape this bag fits well in under stroller storage and since it zips completely shut there is no fear of items falling out.
