CiPU Tote Diaper Bag
Stylish and functional, the CiPU Tote Diaper Bag is perfect for Moms on the go!
I run a lot of errands on a daily basis. It feels like I’m always in the car, going from one place to another all day long. This can be exhausting all in itself but if you have little ones under 5 who haven’t started any formal schooling, then you know running errands is ten times as exhausting with them in tow. Just getting them ready is a chore in and of itself. With my youngest I have to be prepared for anything and everything, so, my backseat is always filled to the brim with knickknacks that aim to keep her happy.
Sippy cups, stuffed animals, wipes, her favorite blanket for if she gets cold, snacks, etc. are just a few of the things I have to make sure I don’t leave home without before setting off to complete my errands list for the day. If it’s not bad enough trying to juggle all of her things that are needed to have a melt-down free day, I have to manage to pack all of my needed items as well. I’m constantly trying to fit everything I need into my pockets such as my wallet, keys, phone, etc. and am always frustrated with lack of storage as my pockets aren’t usually deep enough to hold it all. Friends and family have often joked that I need to invest in a purse or tote but it wasn’t until I was able to work with CiPU that I considered it very seriously.
Established in Taiwan, CiPU was created for moms who found themselves in a similar situation as myself. In addition to not having adequate space for your little ones items as well as your own, many parents find it hard to keep their things together and either pack a bag that is too large to lug around or end up packing multiple bags to ensure they can carry around everything they might potentially need. CiPU knew all too well that the struggle was real for parents so they came up with a diaper bag made of water-repellent material with 14 wide compartments to help keep all of your little ones things organized and easily accessible as you need them.
The Tote Diaper Bag in Heather Gray has been absolutely invaluable to me since it arrived on my doorstep. I’ve literally carried it with me everywhere from running errands to visiting our local playground on the weekends. I’ve stuffed it absolutely full of needed items for not only my 3 year old but for my 5 year old and myself as well; that’s how roomy it is inside. Even with its included accessories (portable changing pad, double pocket pouch and carrying pouch) this diaper bag is super light, weighing just 1.2lbs and making it one of the lightest diaper bags on the market.
We’ve all endured the struggle of packing all of our needed items into a diaper bag so nothing is left behind, so, CiPU has crafted a diaper bag that boasts 13 different compartments: 9 interior and 4 exterior as well as 2 elastisized mesh pockets for keeping important items handy. Storing all of your little ones baby related items like bottles, wipes, toys, etc. will never be a problem again and best of all you can keep it all organized without the added frustration of trying to remember where you put everything!
As much as I love how much room this bag has, I’m also loving the fashion side of it as well. A lot of diaper bags on the market are geared more towards functionality and as a result are often just plain boring and not even a bit stylish. The Tote Diaper Bag by CiPU is the exact opposite of most diaper bags I’ve looked at over the last few months as I was debating whether to purchase one. It’s marketed as a diaper bag, sure, but it’s also stylish enough to be used as an every day purse.
There are a few different designs to choose from, ranging from serious to fun but the heather gray option goes with just about anything and I don’t worry about pairing it with a professional outfit for work. The interior is hot pink, which contrasts nicely with the gray exterior. I’ve actually had a hard time keeping it away from my 5 year old because she loves the hot pink inside and loves to try and use it around the house for her many stuffed animals, blocks, etc.
I’ve loved the functionality and the style this diaper bags gives me. I’ve gotten several compliments from my fellow moms and my family has expressed relief that I finally got something to store all of my gear and every day necessities in. If you have a fellow mama who has been on the hunt for the ideal diaper bag, CiPU is a great brand to recommend or even give as a gift!
