I am going to purchase my first Ju Ju Be bag and I just can't decide which will be best for my family. I have a 2 1/2 year old boy and a 3 month old little girl. Currently, I have a backpack that straps onto my stroller, which I love, but it is getting worn out. I love the backpack style and I am thinking the Packabe? Anybody have any opinions to help me out? Will this bag be big enough? Also I was thinking about getting a thrifty wallet and a be quick. Do people usually match everything when they buy these bags? Help! Please! Question Thanks!

I am also debating between backpack styles. I currently use a BeTween and love it! It can be worn cross body and shortened. I usually swing it to my back and it is really comfy. I have heard the Packabe is a bit less uncomfortable since the strap are unpadded. I am deciding between the BRB and Mini. The mini looks so comfy, but if you are an over packer...go with the BRB. LD&D has great YouTube videos to compare each backpack style.

BeQuicks are amazing accessories as well as the BeSet. I love the medium and large sets Very Happy

HTH!

Seriously the BRB is the most amazing JJB out there. You can fit a ton of stuff in there and it is easy to organize. It is comfy to wear. The only "con" is that if it's packed full it can be a little heavy. It's an awesome stroller bag too....everything is easily accessible when it's hanging on a stroller. It comes with the stroller clips to make it even easier too!

If I could only own ONE diaper bag it would be JJB's BRB hands down!

Hi Ladies ok Seminolemom I would recommend the packabe as its the most versatile bag, yes it could be uncomfortable with the unpadded straps but they do sell padded straps if you happen to wear it mostly backpack style or need backpack mode for one day. I personally have it usually packed and don't find it uncomfortable at all. Its our splash pad bag and I have it PACKED!!! So depending what you pack for both your kids I would say its big enough...

Now accessories all depends, some ppl match but if your like me and can't afford to have an array of prints to match then get one neutral type that matches all...

Another bag that is my fav is the be spicy now its only a messenger type bag but that is also quite roomy my hesitation for two kids is it probably won't be big enough for two kids I find the packabe bigger...when ds was potty training I had it filled or took to the spalsh pad for one kid I found it to be on the smaller side

As the previous poster posted be quicks and be sets are amazing as they organize you and make more room in your bag

HTH

I like the brb too but I find with the packabe I did wear it messenger, shoulder and backpack mode I really love the versatility of this bag...

I haven't had a BRB so I can't make a comparison (sorry), but I do love my PackaBe! I use a Quick and small/medium sets to help organize it. I also love the versatility of the straps & own the padded backpack straps to use for the long outings (zoo/fair, etc) when I know I'll be carrying it for extended periods of time.

I have 4 different jujube bags plus several accessories and find that the packabe is my FAVORITE of all. It's approx the same size as the Be all but fits way more in it for some reason. It is absolutely the most amazing bag that I've ever purchased and best of all the only one I own that my husband will carry!!! The straps are actually really comfortable to wear even though they're not padded for back pack style. Well worth it!!!!

I think the packabe will be the best choice. I had the BRB for a bit and while it is great for longer outings, it is just too tall for me to wear for anything but long trips.
