Finding a bag that has everything perfectly placed and has the perfect amount of compartments is almost impossible! I have several bags that I have a love/hate relationship with because I love the look, but not enough pockets or perfect amount of pockets, but don’t love the look of the bag. Go GaGa bags are by far the most well thought out bags I have ever come across.
Being a mom of two toddlers and a baby, I always have a lot to carry and always choose large bags. I find that by the end of a trip out with my girls, my shoulder aches because I carry so many things that I can’t be without. Jill Cartwright, the founder of Go GaGa sent me the Slide bag to try and I am pleasantly pleased.
The first thing I noticed about the Slide that makes Go GaGa bags unique is their strap. The strap spreads the weight of the bag across your back and shoulders. Sometimes, my shoulder and arm go numb after carrying my handbag because it’s digging into my shoulder. Also, the fabric they use to make the strap is soft and stretchy and is ideal for nursing moms because the stretch nylon won’t put pressure on their breasts, cause problems with milk supply or irritate sore or cracked nipples.
Another excellent feature of Go GaGa bags is insulated bottle pockets that will fit baby bottles, sippy cups, soda cans, water bottles and even a bottle of wine so that when mom and dad get a chance to go to a concert in the park, they can pack their Go GaGa bag with a picnic dinner and a chilled bottle of Chardonnay.
The Slide will be the only bag you will need because it is so versatile. It’s great for the mom or dad on the go because it comes with a changing mat, wipes holder, has pockets for everything from bottles to cell phones, has straps to carry a yoga mat or strap the bag to your stroller, is big enough to carry a laptop and has a sleek design for mom or dad. There is even a center divider that velcro’s into place when you need organization. This is great when you want to keep kiddy stuff separate from mommy stuff, yet need to carry it all in one bag.
The Slide is the ultimate parent friendly bag and Go GaGa has just recently added two new styles to their line that feature larger openings and more carrying capacity for parents using cloth diapers, parents of multiples or parents like me with a toddler and a baby both in diapers at the same time. Also, all of their totes are available in recycled fabric in Sea Blue and Eggplant.
I’m not going to go crazy anymore trying to stay organized…I’m going Go GaGa!
