Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Diaper Bag

I received this Petunia Pickle Bottom bag from a friend right before my daughter, Sydney, was born. I immediately thought it was a super cute bag, girly but not overwhelming. My husband even said that he wouldn’t mind carrying it around (which he has done on several occasions). I get a lot of compliments on this diaper bag from other moms, which makes me feel great!

The Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Bag is pretty thin, considering how much I can stuff in it (I usually carry 5-10 diapers, wipes, 2 outfits, snacks, sippy cup, and a few toys). It comes with extra straps to make it a backpack (comes in handy at the zoo or park). It does have the messenger strap which fits over most stroller handles. It has 3 pockets inside (one is zippered and detachable) and 2 pockets outside (great for holding cups). It has a zippered outer pocket (has 2 pockets for diapers and wipes) and a detachable changing pad. The PPB website shows the many beautiful fabric choices. It is a very thick, sturdy bag and will sit upright with no trouble (which is nice to know if you carry cups / bottles).

The only problem I have is that it can be a pretty expensive item unless you’re willing to look around and wait for a good deal. Sometimes, they can be found at TJMaxx and Ross at a discounted price, but you can also find them online at places like Ebay or


  1. Thanks for sharing this review, I live in the UK and have fallen in love with the pp bags, I am thinking of trying to get my aunt to send me one from the US as so cute, do you think the fabric on the outside will hold the test of time.

  2. I think it will! We have been using ours for 2 years now and it still looks great! Since it is all fabric (and none of the vinyl-type material some bags use) you don't have to worry about cracking. Send your aunt around to some Ross stores :) That's where my friend found mine (waaay cheaper than paying full price)!

  3. Thank you so much for your review. I love the designs and am willing to pay full price. I hadn't even thought of checking TJMaxx or Ross. Great suggestions!
