Clic-It: The Smart Diaper Bag System Review

When I was pregnant with my first son, we went to the local baby stores and registered for items. I remember looking at the sea of strollers, car seats, clothing, diapers and diapers bags and not having a clue where to start. We ended up just registering for a cute diaper bag that had our son’s room theme character on it. I didn’t know much about functionality or what kind of compartments I would want or need.

Now two children later, I know that a diaper bag needs to function well. I now know that the right compartments are essential and I have become a diaper bag collector of sorts. I used to love purses, but now I know diaper bags are the way to go and can be stylish as well. I love having them in different sizes, shapes and patterns to fit different excursions and moods. Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the Clic-It Smart Diaper Bag System. This video shows how it works in detail and explains it really well:

Now isn’t that cool and versatile? A diaper bag that goes from a messenger-style bag to a tote bag to a belt bag. I love the bag I received and I love how it grows with your child and changes depending on where you’re going for the day. It doesn’t yell, “diaper bag” so it’s great for mom and dad to carry around. I also like how roomy it is and the material is easy to wipe down. I have two little boys and some days it’s packed full with their toys, pull-ups, diapers, changes of clothes and snacks, but some days I just need a sippy and some snacks for an hour out at the park. Clic-It is so many bags in one.

This is how mine is set up right now:

I wish I had this bag when the boys were younger. I must say it’s so much easier to find things. I much prefer this organized bag to digging through crushed up cereal for my car keys at the bottom of a diaper bag. Yay for Clic-It!

Amy Michelle Madison Avenue Go Tote Review

With two little toddler hands wrapped tightly around my fingers, I need a versatile diaper bag that carries enough for both of them, but isn’t bulky or hard to tote around.

Recently, I was sent the Amy Michelle Madison Avenue bag in black to try out.

The Madison Avenue bag features:
 Baby’s section:

  • Changing pad (21″ x 14″) – Remove padding to wash lining
  • 2 Internal & 2 external bottle pockets (baby or water bottles)
  • Quick release pacifier holder
  • Stroller attachments included
  • Top zipper closure
  • Adjustable shoulder strap (can convert to quick backpack)
  • 5 pockets for maximum organization
  • Compartments for diapers, wipes, and bottles
  • Slip pocket on back for changing pad

Mom’s section:

  • Zip closure outside front pocket with cell phone pocket
  • Easy to find key ring
  • Bright lining inside
  • Monogramming available on Madison Avenue collection

I love that I don’t need to carry a separate purse with this bag. I have plenty of room for keys (with attached ring), a wallet and all of the necessities the boys require. The changing pad is wonderful for babies, but easily removable when they are older. The quick release pacifier holder is genius, because you can get to that much needed Binky quickly when baby wants it. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to dig in the bottom of a diaper bag for a pacifier, while my little one gets more and more upset. I use the bottle holders for sippies and I can even put bottles of water or other drinks for myself in the inner pockets and still use the outer pockets for the boys’ drinks.

Here is a video I made showing how I use my Amy Michelle diaper bag. I mention some of my favorite features.

The Madison Avenue bag comes in the following colors:

  • Black Patent with Rich Red Lining black with apple green lining
  • Chocolate Jacquard with Champagne Lining chocolate with periwinkle lining
  • Rich Red Patent with Champagne Lining red with khaki lining
  • Eggplant Faux Patent with Champagne Lining navy with treasure map splash lining
  • Green Faux Patent with Champagne Lining charcoal with galaxy red print lining
