Which Ju-Ju-Be diaper bag is right for me?

I've been getting a whole lot of messages lately regarding Ju-Ju-Be because clearly, I am a huge fan. And the majority of the time, the question I get is, "Which Ju-Ju-Be bag should I get?"

Now that's totally a loaded question because even I change out which bag I carry on the daily. There are so many questions to be answered to determine which bag is right for you:

Are you an overpacker or do you like to pack light?
What will you be using this bag for?
Will the bag be replacing your purse?
How many babies/kids do you have?
And most importantly, which bag do you just have to have?

Okay I get it, they're all just so perfect. They're the best diaper bag for moms so the decision isn't very simple -- so many questions and so many options. 

I'm going to do my best to help you out and decide on just one....for now. Once you hold it in your hands and marvel at it's amazingness,  you're going to fall in love and will totally need another. It's safe to say that I'm officially addicted -- machine washable, durable (with a warranty), waterproof, so many pockets for organizing (and all of the right pockets) AND did I mention they have the cutest prints? Yep, everything you need in the perfect diaper bag.

So in case you need a little help deciding which Ju-Ju-Be diaper bag is right for you, here is a little guide on what I use each of my bags for.

(Oh and just so you have a size reference for each of the bags, Ava is a super tall just-turned-one year old.)

 

The BFF

The Ju-Ju-Be BFF was my first ever diaper bag and to this day, I still use it as my every day diaper bag + purse. It's a great size but not so big that it's a hassle carrying around every day. And what drew me the most to it was the backback straps. You can wear it without the backpack straps as a messenger bag but I've never actually used it that way. It's just the most convenient thing to wear it as a diaper bag backpack when I have a baby on the front or not my hip. So if you want my vote, the BFF is the way to go as your every day diaper bag.

The Be Prepared

I use my Ju-Ju-Be Be Prepared for short weekend trips, beach trips, or when I am on headed to a play date and need to bring toys and a change of clothes...and of course my camera! It's nice and roomy and I love that about it.

The Be Set

My Ju-Ju-Be Be Set has lots of different uses -- a quick on the go purse for when I am on photoshoots with Ava (it holds all of the little distraction toys, lens caps, some snacks to keep her happy, my keys, and my phone), a purse for Ava (yes, she steals them all of the time), and most importantly it is the perfect organizer for your diaper bags! I re-pack them all of the time depending on which diaper bag I am currently using and what I need to bring with me but I LOVE organization so these Be Sets are key.

The Be Classy

I use my Ju-Ju-Be Be Classy the least out of all of my bags but looks wise, I love it! Isn't it such a beauty? It's perfect for date nights, for on the go moms with older kids who don't have too much to pack and for out and about shopping trips. So don't rule it out!

The Be Right Back

The Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back is my ultimate obsession. When I first laid my hands on my Be Right Back from the Versailles collection it was love at first sight. Of course you already know that I am a big fan of the backpack straps (I promise, you need backpack straps on your diaper bag) so this is either an every day bag for me when I have some extra stuff to carry with me, when I want to bring a couple of toys with me or when I bring my camera and multiple lenses along with me. It's a little bigger than the BFF.

Oh yeah, and we use it for Disneyland and sometimes beach trips. And if I had two kids, this would probably be my every day bag for the extra space. So basically, you need a Be Right Back in your life. (P.S. My husband is getting one too and it's the only bag of mine that he will actually carry!)

The Mini Be

I'll be honest - I wasn't in love with the Ju-Ju-Be Mini Be until I saw it in person. I loved the prints and wanted to try it out to see what all of the hype was about and I really love it now. Like a lot. I have more Mini Be's than any other bag!

I use the Mini Be as our "locker bag" for Disneyland, a small bag to pack Ava's stuff in when I don't need anything of my own, and I cannot wait for Ava to use these as her school backpacks when the time comes because they're just too adorable for words. So if you are wanting a small bag and want the backpack straps, then the Mini Be is the way to go!

The Super Be

And finally, the last Ju-Ju-Be diaper bag that I own is the Ju-Ju-Be Super Be and my sole use for this one is the beach! Can you tell that we love the beach?

Ava's 1st Birthday Video | A Pi-Pie Themed 1st BIrthday Party 3.14

I am still reminiscing over this fun day celebrating with all of our closest family and friends! A huge thank you to everyone who came from near and far to celebrate little Miss Ava Sue turning the big O-N-E.

Since Ava was born on Pi Day -- 3.14 -- we styled the entire party vintage chic with hints of pi (yes, the math kind of pi) and pie (the yummy kind of pie). It was such a fun first birthday theme idea! Here's a little sneak peek video at Ava's first birthday. Stay tuned for all of the photos coming very soon!
