I was disappointed when I opend this as it was squashed up and looked so small however after filling it with all the bits I need it packed quite well and fits into the changing bag ok however the bag is small not your typical changing bag ! ... Is a good product you can utilise it to organise the bits you need for baby in very quick delivery !
Perfect organizer for our diaper bags. Makes it easy to switch between the few bags that we have and so much easier to find things! Love all the pockets! Is a bit big for our one bag but can fold in one of the pockets and fits perfectly. A great organizer for all bags!
Love this for organizing my Large Longchamp Le Pilage tote. It fit perfectly! No more digging around for my phone and keys since they all have their own spot now. Other purse organizer inserts made for Longchamp and other brand name bags cost more than double what I paid for this and I couldn't be happier... and who knows maybe one day I will use it as for an actual diaper bag. Super satisfied!
I placed my order for one of these insert organizers with some trepidation, after reading all the bad feedback, but I really needed some way to turn my LeSportSac medium weekender bag into a diaper bag for an infant and a toddler.
The insert arrived in a sealed plastic bag. I noticed that one of the corners of the bag had been cut off at an angle -- perhaps to let the organizer outgas some of the now-infamous toxic smell? I opened the bag and, WHEWWW, yes, it smelled horrible. Like someone had dipped the bag in gasoline.
I didn't have enough time to return the insert and look for another one that would fit my needs. So I washed it twice (hot, heavy duty cycle, extra rinse). Took a whiff. The outside was fine, the inside still toxic. I soaked the insert overnight in warm water with Tide Ultra to the "1" line and washing soda, then washed it the next day with the same heavy duty cycle. The toxic scent was now faint. I gave it to my husband to smell and he pronounced it OK.
So, if you have any other options for an insert organizer and do not have the time or resources to de-stinkify, do not buy this. If you're like me (stubborn and pressed for time), order this but know that, yes, it stinks.
ETA 08/14/13: I've been using the insert organizer for a couple of weeks now. I'm able to fit what I need for two kids in the organizer. I store all the items grouped in Ziploc bags -- infant-sized disposable and cloth diapers plus wipes; toddler disposable pull-ups; extra onesies, pants, and sweater for the baby; extra t-shirt, shorts/pants, and socks for the toddler; snacks for me and the toddler; water bottle for me; a baby book and toy. Because everything is in Ziplocs I don't have to worry about items slipping through the bottom of each cubbie hole. It's a tight fit, though, but I think that has more to do with all that I have to carry for two in diapers.
The smell has dissipated mostly. I did notice the first week that clothing had a faint whiff of chemicals when I pulled them out of the Ziplocs -- it must have seeped through the plastic -- but it's pretty much gone now.
I suffered from diaper bag mayhem, I could never find what I was looking for- I have two kids worth of stuff in my bag at all times. From diapers to toys to snacks and spare clothes, I was going nuts finding my car keys in a sea of chaos! I got this insert thinking it would help control the chaos and it did even more than that! I love that I can compartmentalize everything and if I only have one kid I can remove the insert and just take the essentials with me.
I don't remember the last time I had to search long and hard for anything in my bag- it's really easy to find everything now. This simple organizer has helped me so much, I can't express enough how thankful I am to have found it!
Purchase for my MK purse that I use as a baby bag! This was a game changer. Keeps everything organized. I am able to fit wipes, diapers, bottle, extra clothes, sunglasses and wallet. Just what I needed, not scrambling around to find things anymore.
For the price this thing is great - which is why I bought it. If I had more money to spend on this kind of thing I would've gotten a better product from Etsy. At any rate, it does what it's supposed to do but it does have major downsides: The fabric feels cheap, sort of like really sturdy paper towels if that makes sense, but hey, there's a reason this thing is less than $20. And yes, it STINKS. I Febreezed it about six times because I'm wary of the thing falling apart in the wash. It seems sturdy enough, but not necessarily sturdy enough to hold up in the washing machine.
Buyer beware! There aren't 6 pockets as described... It's one large pocket with a flimsy, floating divider that doesn't go all the way to the bottom of the "organizer." If you are using this for clothes, a pack of wipes, diapers and bottles only then this "organizer" will be fine. If you want to use the smaller pockets (like I did) for fingernail clippers, medications, ointments, etc. please seek another product. There aren't any actual compartments except the sleeves on the outside that can hold your loose change.
Truly, this is the best invention ever. It helps me keep my purse/diaper bag more organized. But now I can find anything. It's also easy t o clean. The other day milk split and since the insert has a bottom to it my Dooney and Bourke purse didn't get ruined. I supplied placed the insert on the top rake of my dishwasher and ran it thru a cycle and its clean and ready to use. I did notice a small plasticky smell to it, but it went away after a couple of uses. Love it best money spent.
