Layla Grayce Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag Boxy Backpack Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Winning comment is #115!


If you have not heard of Layla Grayce before, you are in for a treat. This online store offers chic, stylish, designer products for women, babies, kids and home. I have spent hours browsing the Layla Grayce site, thinking about all of the things I would love to purchase for DD and myself. I was recently the extremely lucky recipient of a Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag Boxy Backpack, thanks to Layla Grayce. Being a mom for a number of years now, I have tried many, many diaper bags in different sizes, designs, colors and brands. I must say that the only diaper bag I keep on going back to is my Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag. Now, I must admit that Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bags are not cheaper, they certainly cost more than a lot of diaper bags out on the market, but I feel that they are definitely worth the sticker price and more! When DD was an infant, I brought a Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag. Another using it for a couple of years, it was sad shape, so I was really happy to receive a replacement that was even better than the last one I had!

You see, the last Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag I had was made with a silk fabric. It got dirty quickly and required constant dry cleaning, but the new Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag I received from Layla Grayce is made with a glazed coated canvas -- so you still get that designer fabric look, but no more regular visits to the dry cleaner's for me, yay!

I can not express enough how much I love, love, love, love my diaper bag! (LOL, yes, I really do love it). If you don't already own a Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag, let me tell you why it is by far the best diaper bag I have ever tried.

*Design: There are so many cute designs and fabric choices you can selected from. check out the Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag on Layla Grayce website and I am sure you will find at least one that you will love.

*Style: I simply love the backpack style. I love that wearing the diaper bag as a backpack allows me to have free hands to carry the baby. If you have more than 1 child, this backpack is even better for you. Need both hands to care for your toddler and the baby, this is the diaper bag for you!

*Comfort: This backpack is so comfort to carry. The straps are the right width to provide comfort and not dig into your skin.

* Usage: You can easily hang the diaper bag over the stroller by picking up the Petunia Pickle Bottom Valet Clips. I love that the diaper bag can hang up high on the stroller, so you don't have it dragging down by the wheels -- which is a problem I had with other diaper bags.

*Pockets: There are 4 deep pockets for bottles and sippy cups! I LOVE this feature. I personally think that this one of the best feature that Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag offers. A lot of times, I was leaving the house with 2 bottles, 1 sippy cup and 1 water bottle for me but I could not find storage spaces for all of these things. Of course, you can just toss them into your diaper bag, but you would be risking a spill. With the Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag, you have 2 deep pockets on the outside (one on each side) and 2 more on the inside.

*Removable dirty diaper pouch: There is a small removable dirty diaper pouch on the inside. I found it to be too small for that, so instead, this is where I store my wallet and lose change. I love it because if I need to go somewhere on my own (late night run to the supermarket), I could just grab withe diaper pouch and toss it in my purse instead of transferring everything back and forth.

*Zip out changing station with detachable pad: This is seriously awesome! I love that I don't have to dig the changing pad out of a diaper bag and then have to either it roll it out or fold it out. With the Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag, you just need to pull down the two side zipper and fold it out to create an instant changing station. With this feature. I was able to change my child's diaper in the back of my car, at the park and even when we were on vacation in Taiwan -- changing stations were impossible to find during our last trip there.


I love shopping at Layla Grayce. Not simply because they offer a lot of great products, I also love the customer service. My diaper bag was beautifully packaged and it was shipped to me really quickly! It is definitely a place that I will be buying things from over and over again in the future.

To purchase the amazing diaper bag I received to review and check out other wonderful products offered by the company, please visit the Layla Grayce website.

Many thanks to Layla Grayce. The company has generously offered 1 Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag Boxy Backpack as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).

Amie said...

You're right, what a great website, I could spend hours there. We have an almost two year old daughter and are expecting twins so there is no end to the things I would love to try out. I think the PPB snuggle sets in matching or coordinating prints would be so cute on our baby twins. For a diaper bag I would be excited to have a Boxy Back Pack because twins are going to need the space that offers, I LOVE the Heirloom bag the most, it is classic, timeless, original and I don't think I would ever tire of looking at it. It's wipeable, would go with most my clothes and our stroller and would make me feel stylish and good in those crazy days I anticipate following the birth.
