SoYoung Charlie Unisex Diaper Bag | Unisex
A bag that’s stylish enough for mom yet rugged enough for dad, designed for years of use. It’s perfect for the gym, for work, or for overnight trips — but until then, it’s designed to haul baby stuff.
Complete with all the necessities — change mat; insulated bottle pockets; an organized, roomy, and wipe-able interior — this bag goes above and beyond in convenience. There’s an entire cooler bag pocket big enough to fit a stash of snacks (or even a 13” laptop!), as well as stroller straps and a backpack conversion option for when mom or dad needs two arms. Besides all of the smart features for baby, SoYoung added extra conveniences for parents: a special sunglass pocket, a cell phone pocket, and a built-in wallet. To top it off, this bag is completely PVC- and phthalate-free.
