Kalencom Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Kalencom is one of those stores that has a lot of the baby basics. They carry Layette, Potty Training items as well as Diaper Bags. I received one of their wonderful diaper bags for this review. 

I received the Laminated Buckle Bag in Spa. 
 I love the pattern on it!
 Comes with a bottle insulated bag and another good size bag
 Insulation
 Big deep bag
 3 pockets on one side
 The top has 2 straps, they are meant to hook on stroller handles. And it has the shoulder handle as well
 They unsnap and then snap around handles
 2 side pockets
 Also has a changing pad!
Since this bag doesn't have a zippered compartment inside I was putting all our little stuff inside that zippered bag. Lotion, sanitizer, pacifier, lip balm, pen etc. It worked out nicely. It was nice because I knew everything was in that one pocket. 

I really do love this bag. I've had that zippered bag full of stuff in here as well as my wallet, cell phone when I leave, 2 diapers, a hard case of wipes (travel) and a soft container of wipes (travel), my coupon booklet (it's small), a bib, socks, burp cloth, change of clothes, the changing pad and 2 bottles. All that fit. 

This bag is sturdy. VERY sturdy. It was kind of hard to get my stuff out of. It was full and hard to dig for what I needed. And it's stiff. Doesn't have much give.

I like this bag, but I have switched back to my original bag which has more give. I think this bag will be perfect for when we don't need as much with us. 1 thing of wipes, 1 bottle, 2 diapers, snack container and change of clothes and then my stuff. Right now there's just too much that Emerson may need when we leave the house so he needs a lot currently and it fits, but it's too full. 

I LOVE the bag though and will love it when it's not so full! Right now my bag is too big for those toddler years, and this bag will be perfect. Plus it's super cute. It's very unisex. There's pink on it, but the bag is more for mom than it is the baby right? lol

I love that it's laminated too because it's super easy to just wipe clean.

Price: $80. This is very reasonable. I can tell this bag is very well built. 

Overall: **** only because it's not the best for those young baby days!
*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from  Kalencom in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Kalencom for allowing me to review this product  and for offering a giveaway
