Like many other moms, before I got pregnant I had dreams of having a cute diaper bag. You know, something trendy, purse-like, and perhaps with a matching changing table pad. My diaper bag dreams ended however after my son was born and one of my husband’s coworkers gifted him a “man bag.”
Recently however, I had my dreams of cute baby gear reincarnated when I got the opportunity to try out a 2 Red Hens Studio diaper bag and nest cart.
It’s been just a couple of weeks since I’ve been using the diaper bag, and I LOVE it! It has become one of my favorite new accessories. Not only does everyone who sees my 2 Red Hens Studio diaper bag mistakenly identify it as a stylish purse (dream realized!) but is also incredibly functional as well, including many pockets and compartments that have held everything from bottles and wipes, to my glasses I’m always losing. There is even a hook to attach to your keys to keep them from getting lost in your bag.
Another great feature I love about this diaper bag is the durable plastic material it’s made out of. This makes the bag easier to clean on the outside and easier to keep clean on the inside. Even if one of my son’s bottles spilled on the inside of the bag, I wouldn’t have to worry about the liquid soaking into cloth and ruining my bag. My husband also appreciated the fact that, unlike some of my other totes and purses, my belonging are held much more secure because of this bag’s magnetic snap and button closures.
I also had a great time trying out the most stylish and handy cart nest I’ve ever seen. The 2 Red Hens Studio cart nest is attached to a plastic case which zips around it making it into a compact square for storage. Not only was the cart nest itself incredibly soft and comfortable when unzipped (think your favorite flannel blanket), but the plastic casing that surrounds it is great for repelling any dirt or liquid that may be on the cart. This nest would be especially good for those rainy days where you have to pull a wet cart from the parking lot for shopping. Not to mention, my son, who just recently learned to sit up, was so comfortable in this cart nest and had a great time trying this out!
I loved that 2 Red Hens Studio also has several eye catching patterns for their diaper bags and cart nests, which can be mixed and matched with each other. 2 Red Hens Studio, based in Colorado and founded in 2011 by designer and resident ‘Mama Hen’ Lori Holliday, also offers many other must haves for mamas including Toy Nannies and several other awesome accessories.
