Timi And Leslie Marilyn II Diaper Bag Review From: Timi and Leslie

Pros
This is a real classy bag that you cannot even tell is a diaper bag. Makes a great purse or laptop bag as well.

Cons
It's a little pricey but considering you can use it for a long time, that might be reasonable for some who have the budget.

Verdict
All in all, it's a real great bag that you will get a lot of versatility out of.

Why the Marilyn II Diaper Bag from Timi and Leslie is a Great Choice

As a work-from-home mom, I spend a great deal of time running errands with a new baby and small child.  I need to have a diaper bag that can hold the things the children need as well as what I need for myself particularly if I am working during appointments.  I would rather not carry around a diaper bag that screams what it is with silly pictures and baby colors.  I like the Timi & Leslie Marilyn II Diaper Bag because it has great styling and is perfect to take to either a business meeting or on any other errand that I may be running.  I could actually use this as a big purse and laptop case because it is so roomy.  It is not difficult to picture all of my kids stuff as well as mine in this great bag.

Besides being a great looking bag with a chocolate brown faux leather exterior, this bag offers so much more to the busy mom.  The small pouch is there for all the items mom needs like identification, money and any other items.  I like that because it means I do not have to take a separate purse with me and everything we all need can be carried in just one bag.

Why Any Mom Would Love This Bag

I doubt if there are very many mothers who would not love this diaper bag and who would not find the conveniences just as great as I do. My favorite aspect of this bag is the handy changing mat that comes with it so I do not have to bring a spare blanket for this task.  I hate putting my baby directly on the changing tables in public bathrooms because you never know how clean the previous mother who used it before you was. 

Sometimes you might need to change quickly in the car or somewhere else away from home, too. So bringing a blanket was my only option until I found this bag.  I also adore the insulated bottle holder which means I do not have to worry about finding a way to warm up milk when I need to feed the little one.  I can preheat it at home and then when he is ready to feed, the bottle is ready too.  It also keeps cold milk cold so it doesnt go bad in hot temperatures. One of the best features is the fact that this bag is so versatile.  It can be strapped to the stroller when we are walking around or I can hang it off my shoulder when I am not taking a stroller with me.

Price is an Issue

Now this bag is highly versatile as stated but the cost is really high for a faux leather bag and I would think for over a hundred and fifty dollars that they could have used the real thing.  Other than the faux leather and price, I really do like this diaper bag.  It does come with some pretty great accessories that do make the price higher but I still cannot understand how the company can charge this much for a bag that is not made out of real leather.  I just wish the price were more competitive and a bit lower.  But since I could easily use this as a large purse if I wanted to, then I could more use of it when the kids get older too.  The style of bag is a classic so it will never look outdated and it is something that I can pass on to one of my friends in the event that they have a baby and I no longer need it.

What Other Moms Think

Berahid says, i want a big diaper bag that can still stand up on its own when put down, and looks dressy
Wilkin states, it has a very roomy interior with multiple pockets, a padded changing pad with a front mesh pocket. I love it since I can fit so much stuff in it.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, even though the price is a little more than I would like, I would recommend this diaper bag.  It has great features and makes it convenient to run errands with my little ones.  There are so many separate components to this bag that that many will not mind the price when weighed against the classic styling. Plus, youll use it long after your baby is no longer a baby, if you choose to keep it.
