When Nellie was 6 months old we flew from Chicago to Bend, OR to visit Adam’s parents. I tried to read as much as I could about travel tips for flying with an infant before we left to ensure I did all the recommended tips and tricks, but eventually I had to just stuff a ton of stuff in a bag and hope we all lived. We survived the flights, but the biggest thing I learned was that my everyday diaper bag was simply not big enough for cross country flight travel with a baby.
A few weeks ago when we took our second cross country flight with a lap infant the main difference was this time I flew with a super diaper bag. The diaper bag option to rival all diaper bag options. A mother’s dream for travel.
The eba tote.
The biggest help is that this bag is really big. Like, probably the biggest bag I’ve ever owned. Which is exactly what you need when you’re traveling with a kid. I was able to fit everything in the entire world that Nellie needed as well as everything I needed in a single bag that was still comfortable to carry, and better yet, still zipped closed. I mean, that’s a LOT of stuff in a single bag.
Beyond being capable of holding the contents of a small army, it has a great look and feel. The material is vegan leather which is unbelievably soft, the interior is made of recycled materials, and the best part, the interior is waterproof! Divided into two sections, you can keep items you don’t want destroyed like iPads, wallets, phones, etc on one side, and put water bottles, baby bottles, dirty diapers, wipes, snacks, etc on the other and know your valuables are safe from muck.
The bag comes in five different colors and patterns, but the classic black with the surprising blue interior spoke to me the most. Easy to coordinate with anything, black to hide food, baby, and general travel mess, and matches with everything!
Another nice touch is every bag that is purchased receives a hand written thank you card from the owner (who just so happens to be my little sister) which is a reminder that purchasing items from small businesses makes a big difference in the lives of everyday people.
Basically, if you’re a mom, or soon to be mom and you are feeling like your everyday diaper bag just isn’t cutting it with the loads of crap you need to haul around, then all your problems can be solved with an eba tote. Big, beautiful, sustainable, USA made, and supports small business. What more can you ask for?
Besides someone to watch your kid on the flight so you can read your book in peace that is.
