Review: Diaper Bag Wrangler Changing Pad

There's a beautiful diapering accessory at Mami's and Papi's online store...not easily noticed, but it deserves some love!  The Diaper Bag Wrangler (DBW) has several handmade items available at Mami's and Papi's (even a few exclusive's!), and the changing pad is just one of them.

The DBW changing pad measures approximately 22" by 17" in length - a perfect size.  It has a beautiful cotton print on one side and a super-soft unbleached organic cotton as the reverse.  The first thing I noticed about it was how vibrant the colors are on the cotton print - the pictures do not do it justice!  The second thing I noticed was how nicely it was made.  The fabrics are substantial, not thin, and of course it's washable!

I would hate for this to be limited as just a changing pad. Around here it's been miserably hot and humid. At the suggestion of a friend, I folded the two sides in and lined our seat with it, and it helps wick the moisture away. As an added bonus, our carseat got a facelift! With Fall just around the corner in the Midwest, it would also be nice to have the flannel side facing out.

Here are a few more action shots of the "changing pad" in use over the last few weeks.

Replacing our folded bath towel which was functioning as our changing pad...

If you're missing your "changing pad", check to see if it's being snuggled with - it's that soft!!
Not pictured are it's use as a baby lap blanket in the infant carseat during a recent unseasonably cold weekend, and as a blanket for my 1 1/2 year old's dolly. My only problem is figuring out which way to use it - good thing it's washable!

I would love to see an option for a second generation changing pad with a layer of PUL sewn in! I would call it "not-just-a-changing pad" :)

Need one?  Find it here at Mami's and Papi's where it's available in beautiful prints that coordinate with some of the DBW's other items such as aprons, booties, and wetbags! There are even military-print yellow ribbon items from which a portion of the purchase goes to the USO.

Until next time!

I think your little one is so cute all curled up with that blanket :-) She's just beautiful. I think both of your girls are just amazing and these are such beautiful pictures.

Great review Prima,

Versatile! I like that. My first is due in January, and I think it would be smart to have a few of these on hand for random baby messes!

Very cute :) It's always nice when something is multipurpose (and using it in the car seat, GENUS!)

Very cute. A sewn in layer of PUL would be great! I'm wondering what brand the diaper bag in the background of the pic is. We may NEED that!

To kbs: looks like a Thirty-One bag! I love Thirty-One!! This changing pad is awesome! I think a layer of PUL would be even better. I know it wouldn't make it as soft for later but just enough for those times when you didn't get the diaper on fast enough! haha Thanks for sharing!
