So I looked a little more, and discovered the Be Tween. You may (or may not, I suppose) remember that I blogged about this bag. It still has the main features that I love about the Ju-Ju-Bes, but its a seriously smaller scale. And the $100 price tag is a lot more wallet (and husband) friendly.
My only concern was its smaller size. Measurements are 12 x 9 x 6. Cloth diapers are much bigger than disposables. So I felt like I needed a bigger bag to accomodate that. While the mammoth Be Prepared was overkill, I feared the Be Tween just wasn't going to cut it. Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
I enlisted the opinion of Lisa for the experienced mom vote. She was of the same mind. I don't need a suitcase, but a purse isn't going to work either. I dragged her to the store to see them in person, and we made a decision!
I am now the proud owner of a Ju-Ju-Be Be Spicy!
Not too big, not too small. No annoying flap to flip every time I need something. I love the way the Brown/Champagne looks in person, and the little details (stars and rhinestones) are just the icing on the cake!!
Also, Lisa and I went to check out the new Buy Buy Baby, and discovered that not only will they accept 20% off coupons AND gift certificates from Bed Bath & Beyond, they also carry Ju-Ju-Be!!! So Lisa is ALSO the proud owner of a new Be Spicy! And she had a coupon! 20% off makes a big difference to $150!!!Pin It
