Coco & Kiwi was founded by a mom entrepreneur with the mission of providing smart products with easy clean up. They offer beautiful diaper bags, practical toddler training pants, and waterproof seat liners, each defined by the slogan "Messy Baby, Happy Mom"! Our review moms Katie and Amy had the opportunity to review the gorgeous high-quality Sydney Diaper Bag in Jade and Amber. We are excited to share with you our findings and opinion of the Sydney Diaper Bag, as part of our Mommy Lab segment on Mommy Scene. The Sydney Diaper Bag was also a recent Green Scene Mom Award winner!
The Coco & Kiwi "Sydney" diaper bag comes in colors Amber, Jade, and Buff. These cheerful hues add an eye catching twist to an otherwise super functional diaper bag. The Sydney bag is made of durable and easy-to-clean faux leather, accented with sturdy hardware and zippers. The inside and outside of the bag is completely wipeable so this bag will probably stay looking beautiful for a long time. We love that the bags have a contrasting color lining inside! The Amber bag is lined with deep turquoise water resistant material, while the Jade and Buff bags have fuchsia lining.
Included with the bag is a folding changing pad, a waterproof mess bag that unzips from the diaper bag for easy cleaning, a long shoulder strap, and detachable stroller straps. The interior of the bag holds a lot of gear, ideal for serving as a purse and diaper bag. The Sydney Diaper Bag has seven inner pockets. The end pockets are ideal for holding powder and a bottle, and you can tuck away socks, a pacifier, and other smaller accessories in the small pockets. The one inner zipper pocket is perfect for holding your keys and phone. It can be hard for a mom on the go to carry a purse and a diaper bag, and the Sydney bag is stylish and accommodating enough to combine the two into one!
The inner "wet bag" unzips from the rest of the diaper bag for easy removal and cleaning in the washing machine. This works perfectly for soiled diapers or clothes. It's slim and takes up minimal space inside, and you won't have to remember to pack your wet bag since it's attached to the bag.
One of our favorite details on the Sydney Diaper Bag are the four metal studs on the bottom of the bag that help keep it clean. These studs allow you to put your bag on the floor without it really touching the floor. They also help to reduce wear on the bottom of the bag. The hardware on the bag is sturdy metal. The Amber bag has gold hardware and the Jade and Buff bags have silver hardware.
We have 6 kids between the two of us moms and we have used just as many (6) other diaper bags that are all top brand names. The quality of this bag definitely holds up to the others. It is not the roomiest of diaper bags when zipped closed because it tapers at the top, but it holds plenty of necessities for one baby or minimal items (extra pants, a few diapers, a pacifier, etc.) for several kids. You can also fit more if you don't zip it closed.
Zippers on diaper bags get the most wear, especially when too much gets packed into the bag, or the zipper is quickly pulled while you're trying to grab an emergency baby wipe. We've taken these bags everywhere for a few weeks now and haven't been very gentle with them and they still look brand new. The edges are stitched with durable stitching and the zippers are finished off with easy-to-grab leather tabs and reinforcing rivets. It didn't take long for the Coco & Kiwi Diaper Bag to become a favorite oversized bag for on the go.
The coordinating lining of Coco & Kiwi bags are a fun pop of color! We also really like the Coco & Kiwi Provence Bag, a navy and white nautical stripe with brown leather accents. All Coco & Kiwi products that we've used are all top quality and meet very fundamental needs.
