Well the cat is out of the bag! The Salt Project crew is growing again! We are excited to announce the addition of another crew member, bonus baby #5 for our family, due this fall! We were not planning on having more kids, so I have happily donated all of our baby gear as we finished each phase with #4. So we are starting over from scratch. The good news is that after 12 years of having babies, I know exactly what I like and what doesn't work so well.
I'm so excited to gather my favorite baby items this time around. Items that I wish I had had with my other babies.
Number one on my list is a diaper bag. I've had several, and they have all had their positives and negatives. I knew I wanted a backpack option this time around, nothing is worse than having your diaper bag slipping off your arm or pulling on your shoulders while trying to juggle and baby and holding a toddlers hand.
I've had my eye on the Coco and Kiwi bags for awhile now and I'm so excited to partner with them to review a bag for you guys! And word on the street is that we will be giving away $100 to their shop so keep an eye out.
We took the Stonewash Convertible Provence Bag for a test drive at the Scottish Festival a few weeks ago. I loved that backpack feature! But also loved that it was sturdy enough to set on the ground or table while I wasn't wearing it, and it didn't collapse into a black hole. It stood firmly so I could search the bag with ease. I could also grab the top handles and use it as a bag with easy access.
It fit my camera, water bottle, snacks, wallet, and still had plenty of room for "baby stuff", you know, for when I actually have to use it to carry diapers and stuff.
One of my favorite features that was a total bonus is the double luggage zipper. It was so easy to open at any angle with one hand. We are loving this bag already!
