I ordered the strap that is sold separately for the hie diaper bag and attached it through the stroller loops on the diaper pod. It allows me to use just the pod as a small shoulder bag. I have 2 and 4 year old boys, only 1 is in diapers but having wipes handy is a must for both kids. I can also fit a couple of diapers and spare clothes, as well as the rescue seizure meds for my oldest son. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a smaller bag with the essentials for quicker outings or church.
I am someone who loves compact, easy to grab items. I don't really like carrying a purse and will often keep only a small wallet and keys in my pocket. I really wanted a small, handheld diaper bag but all of the ones I was finding were made for people that use disposable diapers. I like that this is compact but a little bigger. It will fit cloth sized diapers. I also like that it is big enough to fit cloth wipes, a wet bag and cream if needed. I can fit more than one cloth diaper and even a small change of clothing. I feel like the quality is great. I love the straps that will attach to a stroller and the blue color. The ONLY think I don't see myself using is the front wipe area. I may use it in the event I use disposable wipes. I will mainly be using Grovia's cloth wipes and therefore I won't be using the front pouch as it seems to be a dispenser for disposable wipes.
This is my second pod. I got my first one with version 1. And now that I have 2 children, it helps me keep both kids items separated out easily. Also great for grab and go when you don't want to take the while Hie out with you!
