 Ju Ju Be- All or BFF?

I can't decide between the JuJuBe All or the BFF diaper bag. If you have either one could you weight in on what you like and/or dislike about it? Or if you know what both are like, which one is better? It will be for two kids, but only the baby will be in diapers. Will still need to carry sippy cup, snacks and change of clothes in the bag for my DD but most of it will be baby stuff.

TIA!!

I have the BFF for one child and I wish there was a bit more room so I would say with 2 kids to get the bigger bag!

Have my BeAll and it works for two kids..and my wallet. It's packed to the max but that bag is SO comfortable to carry. My favourite part of the bag? The key clips on the shoulder and bag. I ALWAYS misplace my keys and I bought a caribiner clip and have never lost them and always know where they are.

I have the BFF for 2 kids an while sometimes I wish it was a teeny bit bigger, I wouldn't be able to fit it under the stroller if it was!

I usually have packed in the middle part:
-2 CDs (1 for each DD)
-2 sposies
-pack of wipes
-wetbag
-change of clothes for YDD
-toys for YDD
-2 reusable bags (for groceries etc)
-dayplanner
-crayon wallet
-spit up blanket
-nursing cover
-Ouch Pouch
-kleenex
-bib

In the Mommy pocket I have my wallet, lipglosses, and sometimes my keys. Snacks usually go in the bottle pockets on the sides and the teeny pocket on the front.

If I used CDs *and* formula, it would be too small, but one or the other should be fine. Oh, and I have the backpack straps on and that alone made it worth the price when I'm holding ODD's hand and carrying YDD's bucket seat!

I don't know about the BeAll but I love the BFF. I CD but BF so no bottles. I usually put two covers and three inserts along with 2 sposies. I also put two outfits, toys, a water bottle and two receiving blankets.

I mostly love it for the backpack straps. I babywear a lot so it makes things so much more comfortable.

Hmmm that doesn't help me narrow it down too much, lol! Both bags sound great. I think I'll just have to go and see which one will suit my needs better. I do really love that the BFF has backpack straps, I could see that being handy with 2. I always thought I'd get the All though.

I am going to be EBFing (assuming all goes ok!) and using only disposable diapers so I think the BFF sounds like it should be ok size wise.

I bought my BFF just before DS arrived, I love it! I thought the backpack straps might be handy with two and they totally are.. I often am holding DD by one hand, the carseat in the other hand and so it's nice to have the diaper bag out of the way! I like the way it opens out so that you don't have to go digging through a deep bag, but there are gussets so all your stuff doesn't fall out either.

If you are using disposables it should definitely be big enough for everything!

Okay next question. I'm assuming that going to a botique store to buy the bag isn't the cheapest option. Did anyone buy theirs online? I could buy it from the JuJuBe website but, again, I'm guessing that's not the cheapest either.

I bought mine off Kijiji actually, it was hardly used and she still had all the tags. They pop up from time to time in the Stork Swap area here too.

I have the BeAll.

I cloth diapered and this bag was plenty big enough for CD, change of clothes, bottles etc. But at the same time it did not feel HUGE. Once out of cloth diapers we used it as our main travel bag for overnight trips etc.

We still have it 3.5 years later and it still looks brand new. I swear the thing is indestructible after the things DH and I have put it through.
