Babymel X2 Diaper Bag: Review and Giveaway

For the last three years, diaper bags have been a staple in my home, as would be the case for most moms of young children. I have been through several different types and styles, because my needs have changed during the last year or so. I recently found a company that has designed a fantastic diaper bag, and I can't wait to tell you all about it. The Babymel X2 Diaper Bag will change the way you look at diaper bags! 


Julie, from Conception Showroom, provided with me with the Babymel X2 to review and it is my new favorite bag!




About Conception Showroom:


Julie Khoury and Dori Rhoades first met in 1999 while working as buyers for a start-up company in Los Angeles called Babystyle. As Babystyle expanded its services from online to catalog to retail stores throughout the West Coast, Dori and Julie oversaw buying for the company’s softlines department, which included maternity and baby/kids apparel, along with nursery d├ęcor.
With this experience, coupled with the fact they both were in the early stages of starting their own families, Julie and Dori dreamed of creating a unique home for hip and eclectic designers from the U.S. and abroad to showcase their collections before the buying community.
Their dream became a reality with the birth of Conception in 2004. Having experienced their own pregnancies (Dori with Oliver andHanna, and Julie with Aisley and twins QuinnSadie), the two not only bring to Conception a keen eye for fashion, maternity apparel and accessories, but also a “feel” that only a mother would know. This hands on familiarity, enables Conception to feature lines that keep mommies-to-be stylishly chic during pregnancy. 
You can see the full line of designers carried through Conception Showroom here.



About Babymel:
Babymel Ltd was established in London in 2006 by Melanie Marshall and Suzi Bergman, the co founders of Storksak. Babymel was established to offer parents an attractive and functional diaper bag at a fantastic price.

Babymel launched its first collection in Spring 2007 with the introduction of the Amanda bag - a chic and lightweight shoulder bag.

In spring 2009, Babymel launched their innovative Babymel X2 alongside their patent pending strollerstrap. They also introduced new colors and exciting prints for their popular Amanda style.

All our bags are equipped with durable wipe-clean lining. The multi-functional storage pockets makes this an ideal choice for the 'modern mom'.




About The Babymel X2 Diaper Bag:
Babymel X2- Twice the Baby... Twice the Bag!
Having twins... Second baby on the way..
Introducing a brand new concept from Babymel- The Babymel X2 is a bag for people with more than one child or twins. 
Comprising of two separate bags which can be clipped together or separated as needed.


The Babymel X2 is equipped with:
  • Two separate bags which clip together
  • Two adjustable strollerstraps
  • Two insulated zip bottle pockets
  • Two changing mats
  • Wipe clean lining
  • Internal elasticated pockets for organization
  • Dimensions: H 12in W 17.5in D 8in

My Review:

I am loving my Babymel X2 Diaper Bag. Although designed for families with twins, this bag can be used for families of all types. I use it so that each of my girls has their own bag. 


My favorite features are all the pockets, the insulated bottle pockets and that the material is so easy to clean. The material is very durable as well, and I know it will last a long time. Instead of using the insulated pockets for bottles (since neither of my children use bottles any longer), I use it for sippy cups or juice boxes. 
Another reason I love this bag is that is does not look like your typical diaper bag. It reminds me of a tote/messenger bag, and because of that, I know we will use the Babymel X2 for a long time to come.
Babymel X2 comes in three solid color combos: Black/Red, Black/Black, and Sand/Army Green  Though the price (retails for $98) seemed high to me initially, I figured I am getting two bags, and I will use the Babymel X2 for at least the next three years, so well worth the initial investment.
I highly recommend this bag and give it a huge thumbs up.

  6. I would love a new diaper bag! I really wanted a new one this time, but it was a want rather than a need, so I'm still using the old one. :) I think I would pick sand/army.

  7. I like the red/black X2 color combination. My niece just told me that she is pregnant, and I would like to win this for her. She and her husband met in the Navy, but she is still an extreme OU Fan. These colors would be perfect.
