I have the Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack. I’m due in January so I haven’t been able to use it yet. I like that it comes with different straps so I can either wear it as a backpack or carry it like a messenger bag. I have a lot of problems with my shoulder so the backpack option was the selling feature for me. The quality of the bag is amazing (as it should be for $189…lol). Fortunately I bought mine off of another mom for $50 and it looks brand new.

There are quite a few reviews of the PPB diaper bags on Youtube so you might want to give that a try too. I watched quite a few video reviews before deciding which bag I wanted. 🙂

@TheNewlyMrsD:  I have a five year old- and I have used PPb Boxy Backpack, PPB Shoulder Bag (they discontinued these), PPB Touring Tote, PPB Sashay Satchel + the Weekender.  Also the Cameo clutch.  I also have a wallet, 3 Powder Room Cases, a train case, and the zip-up reuable tote- all PPB.

the boxy is the best for the mom who wants to pack everything and the house- it fits a lot, and is of course awesome because it’s a stylish backpack (or shoulder/messenger).  I used the Touring Tote when he was a little older and we packed less.  I still have one of them- I use it as a handbag for myself occasionally.  

The Sashay Satchel was short lived because it came out as my son was getting older.  I still used it- and loved everything about it. I’ve bought one as a bag just for me.


And all of the other bags/items are awesome and excellent quality.  Totally worth the money, especially if you are into handbags (I am!)–

when we have another baby, I will likely get a Boxy, Weekender and a Sashay Satchel to switch between.  If I have to reccomend- I’d say Boxy since I don’t know how you like to pack, and that’s the one that’s the best “general” one.

I’m interested in this so commenting to follow. I love the new embossed design in the city carryall or the boxy. 

ETA: I too have back issues particularly between my shoulder blades and find it hard to carry a one shoulder for long periods of time

I have the backpack and love it! I would recommend the wipe able material as opposed to the fabric material. The whisper snaps on the front are a must too. I love that it has the roll out changing pad and it is plenty roomy for me.

@TheNewlyMrsD:  Hi may moma, i just saw this. What did you end up deciding? I ordered the sashay satchel online but havent decided if i am keeping it yet. It’s a gorgeous bag but i am worried it’s too narrow. Gotta shop around a bit more before i decide.  Am curious to know what you ended up deciding on!
