Petunia Pickle Bottom | Splurge
Petunia Pickle Bottom tops just about every stylish mom’s diaper bag wish list. They’re feminine, functional, and just plain pretty — no matter which style of bag you prefer.
For us, it’s a toss-up between the Boxy Backpack and the Sashay Satchel; they’re both relatively the same size and are able to convert from a shoulder bag to a backpack. The thing we love most about Petunia Pickle Bottom — and no, it’s not the highly coveted fabrics — is that you’re paying for a better diaper bag, not just a more stylish bag. When it comes to functionality, Petunia Pickle Bottom is at the top of its game, with each bag including a water-resistant lining, four bottle pockets, attached and/or removable changing pad, a wipes case, and roomy organizational pockets. The Boxy Backpack even comes with a detachable dirty diaper pouch and a pacifier pocket. The style is just an extra perk.
Another bonus? With some of the most recognizable fabrics in the baby world, a Petunia Pickle Bottom bag is sure to turn heads at the playground.
