TWELVELittle 3-in-1 unisex tote diaper bag review

As most of you know, I am a mom of 4 kids. They are all 6 and under. It’s safe to say I have my hands pretty full, almost all of the time. I am constantly on the look out for bags that will fit all of my needs. I need a bag that I can throw over my shoulder and most importantly, a bag that can carry a bunch of stuff. I always carry a change of clothes for my kids, snacks, water, diapers and all my diapering essentials on almost every outing. It is important that I have a bag that can accommodate my needs. When I saw the TWELVELittle 3-in-1 unisex bag I thought this could work. Here are the pros and cons of the bag.

Pros:

  • has a backpack option
  • Has a tote option
  • Has a messenger/hobo option
  • Easy to wipe clean
  • Roomy
  • Comfortable backpack straps
  • HUGE bottle pockets
  • Lots of interior pockets
  • Fits a lot(perfect for moms of multiples)
  • Can be used as a travel or work bag
  • Will last beyond your diaper bag days
  • Cloth diaper friendly
  • Insulated bottle pockets
  • Mom of multiples friendly

Cons:

  • Not machine washable
  • Doesn’t come with stroller straps

I wore this bag for a few outings to get a full use of the bag. I used it backpack style, strapped it to my stroller with the stroller straps that came with my TWELVELittle diaper caddy. I also used it in the messenger style. I attached a messenger strap from another diaper bag I own. Adding a strap makes converting from backpack to messenger style very quick, easy and convenient.

My first test was wearing this bag at a park. I packed my bag the way I normally do and this was the ultimate test. If I could run with a diaper bag on my back and not become uncomfortable, we would have a winner! After 30 minutes of chasing my kids around the park my back did not hurt. The straps did not dig into my shoulder or back. The weight was evenly distributed and this was the first time I didn’t prefer to have a diaper bag attached to my stroller. If you are a heavy packer, you can always use stroller straps if your back is strained or just for personal preference.

The second, last and most important test for me is space! Can I fit what I need in this bag?! I always, always bring a change of clothes for each child. So that is 4 changes of clothes. I always bring cloth diapers, cloth wipes, cloth wipe spray, wallet, keys, portable potty, fuel cell packed with snacks, hand sanitizer and a bottle of water and lotion. The changes of clothes alone can make many diaper bags obsolete. Once I add my snacks and cloth diapers, most diaper bags don’t have much space left. This was not the case with this bag! I was able to fit everything plus any other thing I felt like grabbing along the way. The bottle pockets are huge! I can get two bottles in each pocket which is amazing. Most diaper bags can only fit one bottle in each bottle pocket. My favorite thing about this bag is the ability to allow me to carry everything I need and then some while looking stylish 😁. What’s your favorite diaper bag? What bag would your recommend for a new mom or a mom of multiples?

Men don’t care about women

Yep. I said it. Men don’t care about women. If they did society would not be in the ridiculous state that it is in. Men are fully capable of being in a relationship with a women or women and not give a damn about the plight of being a woman. Just today I had a conversation with a man. He stated that I was ignorant. Why? Why was I ignorant? Am I ignorant because I stated that the ONLY way this oppression of women is going to change is when men change? Am I ignorant because I stated facts about how most of the offenders of domestic violence are men? His response is that women shouldn’t stay. How about people keep their hands to themselves?! Is that such a radical idea?! Clearly it is. But! That is not what I want this entire post to be about.

Men don’t care about women. Most of the organizations to stop child abuse, domestic violence and rape are started by women. It is should not be women’s job to combat crimes that we at large do not commit. Why do rape victims have to be the ones to stop men from raping?! Why do child abuse survivors have to be the ones to try and put a stop to child abuse?! Where are all the men who scream “NOT ALL MEN”?!? Where are their organizations or social movements to stop men from being the grand offenders of women, children and even other men?! I’m sure there are some but clearly not enough. Too many men are ok because ya know they aren’t at risk of getting raped for walking home alone. They aren’t at risk of their male boss threatening to fire them if they don’t go on a date with them. They don’t have to worry about why their brother in law, who seems nice is trying to get them alone. Men only care about an issue when if affects them. Take a look at viagra. If viagra said they would stop production I could guarantee that there would be nationwide protests. God forbid their penises don’t work🙄. Some men only want to care about women when it affects their child or mother. For some they never care. It shouldn’t take the birth of a female child for a man to suddenly respect women and their bodies.

The issue is that too many men don’t see women as completely human. It’s shown by the way women in general are the biggest abuse victims and men the biggest perpetrators. The way men dismiss our struggles. The way men call men who acknowledge our struggle weak. It’s all in how anytime a man of power is accused of rape, we immediately say the women are lying. You don’t have to abuse women to not care about women and men don’t realize that.
