Life With Littles | The Problem of Only Two Hands & A Giveaway

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When One Duo reached out to me about collaborating, I emailed them back right away and said YES! It was almost as if they had read my mind; just the day before Joe and I were discussing our dissatisfaction with the diaper bags we’ve used over the past two years. I’ve only ever had a bag that rests on my shoulder and slides down when I reach to pick up a kid or the carseat. I’ve never loved the designs. They never stand upright. And there are never, ever enough pockets. My diaper bag inevitably becomes my purse, and I need pockets (and I can’t stand digging for things I NEED right away…cash, lipstick, etc.). And since having two kids, I’ve realized that only having two hands is really limiting, and having to hold a bag on my shoulder with one hand means that I only have one hand left, and I have two kids. Having my hands free to take care of my babes (push a stroller/hold a hand/carry a baby) is essential!

Enter the ONE DUO. One Duo makes the minimalist backpack diaper bag of my dreams. One Duo is owned by a husband-wife team (heart) who decided to design the bag that answered their need as new parents who couldn’t find a suitable, well-designed bag.

One Duo bags come in fantastic colors and two different sizes. The silver pearl bag featured in this post is their smaller style (and it’s plenty roomy enough for this almost-hoarder who likes to have everything on hand “just in case”). The larger grey bag (pictured on the blanket above) has more pockets, and is a bit larger all-around. It can even double as a weekender bag for the littles. The bags easily attach to a stroller with clips. And they’re so dang attractive (I’ve actually used mine as a bag when I wasn’t toting littles around). Not only does this bag free my hands, but it evenly distributes the weight so I’m not constantly switching the bag between shoulders! There are pockets for barrettes and hair ties, pockets for lipstick, pockets for gum, pockets for water bottles, pockets for diapers and wipes, etc. And an added bonus: a changing pad is included and it fits perfectly into the front pocket.

Needless to say, I’m a fan of One Duo, and I want everyone I know to have one of these backpacks, and especially all my mama friends. So, I’ve partnered with One Duo and we’re giving away a bag to two lucky readers! One person will win a small bag, and one will win a large bag, each in the winner’s color preference! AND everyone who enters the giveaway will receive a $20 gift card to spend at One Duo!
