Kokopax baby gear review and diaper tote giveaway

As any Mom can attest to, deciding which baby gear to use can be quite overwhelming. Especially for the first-time pregnant mom who may not even know what kind of gear she’s going to need.

I distinctly remember the complete and utter clueless feeling I had when pregnant with my daughter and trying to figure out what kind of diaper bag to get or baby carrier to use. Help! If you’re anything like me, you may have to go through a few types of products to find the one that’s right for you and your baby. But that’s all part of the process, right?

kokopax baby products

As Contributing Editor to the Mom Central Baby blog, I’m very lucky to get the chance to review cool and hip baby products. Which is why I’m thrilled to tell you about kokopax. Founded in 2007 by Sarah Spoor, a Mom of four young children (wow!), she put her own immediate needs into action when looking for a way to easily carry her youngest baby, while running after the others!

She had tried other baby carriers and knew what she wanted: something lightweight and stylish (because we all know how burdensome some of these carriers can get)! She handpicked a fantastic line of fabrics and embarked on the journey of producing her own line of baby carriers – go Sarah!

kokopax started as carriers, but now features coordinating diaper bags, totes and sun hats for baby. All pieces go back to the basics of style and comfort. And, for those of you obsessed with celeb Moms like me, Sarah-Jessica Parker, Celine Dion and Angie Harmon, are just a few A-listers toting around kokopax products!

kokopax baby sun hats

One of the items I received to review with my one-year old son was the Savannah Baby Sun Hat. The collection is made of 100% cotton canvas, with a cool worn-in look and ragged edges. (I love that look on boys – reminds me of the very worn-in baseball hats my husband wears!)

The chin strap is very easy to Velcro together (as so many are difficult to snap or tie) and the Sailor design we reviewed features muted, yet summery cool tones, to match up with any of his outfits. (Check out the picture of Gavin hanging in his new hat last night!) kokopax also features an eco-friendly sun hat, printed using a combination of earth-friendly dyes. Hats come in sizes 6-24 months with a recommended retail price of $19.99.

kokopax diaper totes

The kokopax diaper totes are personally my favorite collection. I reviewed the Samantha Diaper Tote in the Watson design. This bag looks anything but something made for toting around diapers! I love the overall look of it – as oversized totes never go out of style. I personally plan on using this for “non-baby” related outings as well!

Made from 100% cotton canvas, it also features a water-resistant lining (thank goodness!) and lots of interior pockets for storing all those bottles, snacks, lotions and toys. In addition to the Watson fabric, the Samantha tote is available in four custom designs. Totes have a recommended retail price of $99.99.

    I love the diaper bags they are so fashionable and I love the colors and designs. I would love one because it looks like a purse and I would rather carry that around then my huge black diaper bag.

  2. Carrie P. says:

    I have the city carrier and LOVE it. So easy and comfortable. I can vouch for the quality of kokopax products, and would love to have this diaper bag (especially since my other bag had a milk-spill inside… yuck!).

  3. Miranda H says:

    I love the fact the it is amazing diaper bag and also that you can be very stylish with the Kokopax Diaper Bag :)

  4. Milcah says:

    I’d love to stand out from the crowd! Looks more purse-like which would be wonderful for me.

  5. Amanda says:

    I love the looks of the kokopax diaper bag, and for this baby I would like a good quality diaper bag that will last me and my wear and tear longer than a week!

  6. Terri S. says:

    I would love to win a kokopax diaper tote because it has so many great features like the extra deep pockets, water-resistant lining, magnetic closure for one-handed closing, a zippered pocket and the bottle/beverage compartment. They look very stylish and come in lovely patterns. I like the watson pattern the best (as is pictured in your review). :)

  7. Lisa says:

    I would love a chance to win. These are really cute diaper bags.

  8. Wendy Cross says:

    I would love to win a Kokopax tote because it’s not only stylish its so convenient.

  10. N H Rector says:

    I thnk it’s very cute, yet stylish. Who wouldn’t like to have one?

  11. Crystal Jo says:

    I love this collection because they don’t look like diapers bags. My boys are at that stage where they still need a diaper bag but now we need more for big boy things, sippy cups etc. These bags would be prefect for that!

  12. Heidi says:

    This is such a great bag! I would like it because it would be such a nice looking bag to carry around and be functional at the same time!

  13. With two babies in diapers, I hate carrying around an ugly diaper bag! I love these bags because they are stylish and practical!

  14. sandra rose says:

    Having 6 kids and having 2 of them under 5, it would be awesome to just take one carry on bag with me when we go places, especially with potty training. We would love to win!!

  15. Adrianna Schnell says:

    Being a cloth diapering mama, my diaper bag is twice as bulky. I love their bags because they’re spacious, and can be carried in the shoulder, and don’t hang! My diaper bag, even on the smallest setting, hands down and hits my bum as I walk. The designs are amazing. I wood love to win one!

  16. Angela P says:

    I love the style and design of this collection! This bag would allow me to have all the supplies I need for my two boys and still carry an awesome looking bag. I love it when function is paired with fashion!

  17. Stefany T says:

    Oh my gosh… the designs on the Kokopax bags are so cute. I love them. What I love most is that they don’t fit that standard diaper bag look and are fashionable enough to carry everyday.. even without baby in tow!

    Thanks for the chance.

  18. Nikki says:

    Would love to win this!

  19. Nicole says:

    Would love to win this for my toddler! The other one we’ve been using for 2 years has had the biscuit!

  20. Amy Brock says:

    This are much more stylish bags than the one I carried around 10 years ago for my son. I love them. My brother is expecting a baby in just 6 weeks. I would love to win this for them. Or maybe I would just keep it for myself.

  21. Jill says:

    I have always liked girl thing…when choosing a diaper bag we went with something very gender neutral because we knew my husband would be using it as much as me…which he does! However, the older our little guy gets the mire I’m realizing that my world is being taken over by boy things!! Don’t get me ring I love it all but I’ve noticed myself getting girlier. I would love to have a stylish diaper bag…who knows maybe our next baby will be a girl…but if I’m blessed with another boy I will certainly need a pretty bag!!!

    Our second daughter was just born today! I know that she would love a Kokopax bag!!!

  24. Emily says:

    I would love to win this tote! It is so stylish. After having my son a month ago my husband got me a green camouflage diaper bag. Let’s just say camouflage does not go good with many
    outfits! Thanks.

  25. Tabathia B says:

    I love the bubbles print and love that the bag is so fashionable it can be used as both a handbag and diaper bag

  26. Stephanie Gimlin says:

    Oh how I love the diaper bags/totes that look like purses- I hate to carry around both! I already have enough to carry around :)

  27. Eve says:

    I’ve heard such great things about these bags and would love to have one! I’m expecting a baby girl any time now and it’d be great to have a tote like this!

  28. Sonya says:

    I would love to win this tote! I need a new one and this would be perfect! My favorite pattern is sprout.
    Thanks for the review and chance to win this great giveaway!

  29. Jeannette says:

    Actually it is my daughter in law that I would love to give this wonderful bag to. I think the waterproof feature is awesome. It looks very fashionable as well, almost like a large purse rather than a diaper bag. Thanks for the chance to win!;0)

  30. Shari Klyn says:

    I love the homespun look of the totes.

  31. kathy pease says:

    kathypease(at)gmail(dot)com

  32. Davina Chojnowski says:

    I have been carrying the same “daddy diaper bag” since my first son was born 3 years ago. No joke, its like a military ruck-sack. My second son is still in diapers and it’s time for an upgrade! I need something girly.

  33. Melody Thomas says:

    I have seen your product on Linda Rhiani webtv show Baby To Be Tv and it’s a cute product. It looks like just a regular bag and not a diaperbag. You have so many cute designs to choose from. Looks like a great product to own.

  34. Meghan says:

    That is a gorgeous bag, and I’d love a bag like that for my son due this October. Thanks!

  35. Heather P. says:

    I love the look of Kokopax products. I’ve been addicted to baby blogs recently- and these diaper bags keep popping up. I’d love to add one to my shoulder!

  36. Moya says:

    I love these bags! I am currently using a black backpack as a diaper bag and it works great but I need something pretty and stylish!! (even mom’s need nice thing right?!?)

  37. Kristen LaValley says:

    I LOVE kokopax! They have the best looking products and I would love to carry my son’s diapers in this bag! :)

  38. Staceys says:

    We’ve got a bambino coming early next month, and the one must have we’re still missing is ……A diaper bag! I want something cute- but not to babyish, these look GREAT!

  39. Amanda Bradley says:

    I love Kokopax. Their sunhats are our favorites. I’ve never used their backpacks but hear nothing but good things about them. Great company. I’d love to have one of their fashionable totes because ours is getting pretty ratty and with our new baby girl, it’d be nice to have a nice tote to take to nice occasions.

  40. Kristin says:

    This is really cute! It looks so multi-functional and not like most diaper bags which are big and awkward. I love how it looks like a purse and yet looks durable enough to last for a very long time

  41. Staci A says:

    I love that the Kokopax collection offers such fun designs for their products! I’d love to win because we’re expecting our second little one and I’d love to be able to go out and about in style!

    I would LOVE to carry that bag. Now that our daughter is almost a year, we need something a bit smaller (and waay more fashionable!).

  43. Joy says:

    What a cute bag, looks better than my purse. I would love to win because we are expecting twins in February!

  46. Shelli says:

    After having my 6th child I would like to upgrade to something stylish and since #6 is a girl this would be a great bag!!

  47. Cathy says:

    Expecting #2 in 2 months and would absolutely adore a Kokopax tote! Our first diaper tote was and continues to be uber useful but a little worn and very masculine (as it was picked out by my hubby). It would be wonderful to have something that is more me for #2!

  48. Lan says:

    We have a granddaughter on the way and I think my daughter would really appreciate this bag! I’ve read some great reviews about these bags so I know it should be great!

  62. Mary Preston says:

    The kokopax collection is practical & beautiful. Got to love that. The diaper tote IS fashionable, but it’s also a fabulous size with lots of pockets. Loving the canvas outer too. Great fabric designs to choose from.

  63. Anonymous says:

    believe my daughter would love this i do

  64. Celeste says:

    I love their sunhats! + I love how this diaper bag is roomy and has wide straps. Sometimes, bags have too thin of straps and they don’t stay on your shoulder well.

  65. Denise B. says:

    There are five patterns to choose from; and I could really use this, because I have been using the same beaten-up diaper bag for seven years now.

  66. susan varney says:

    i like the kokopak original collection with all the fine fabrics to choose from. i particularly like the sailor

  67. Deb says:

    I would love to win this diaper bag to give to my daughter in law for her new little bundle, born three weeks ago. Very stylish indeed!

  68. Jessica says:

    I love the Flutter pattern! I could totally use a new bag for the little one we are expecting in Feb- I really don’t like the one I used for my first kiddo, but it was cheap and practical. This looks practical and adorable!

  69. Anonymous says:

    I love the Watson and Bubbbles 3 but I’m going with Watson as my favorite.

  70. Erica says:

    It doesn’t look like a diaper bag which makes it nice enough to also carry other things in it.

  71. I love the Watson! So cute! I would love to win this so I can stop carrying drinks, snacks, and books in my purse. My kids are 4 & 6 so I still have “stuff ” to tote around but a big diaper bag isn’t really practical anymore…this would be perfect!

  72. ShyBabies says:

    I love the adorable kokopax hats with the velcro! It can be hard to find good sunhats for toddlers these days. If I won a new diaper bag it would be such a blessing. Although they get so much use, a nice diaper bag is one of the things I just have not had the ability to rationalize spending much money on so right now I am repurposing a school bag, but would love to have a nice large quality diaper bag.

  73. Jessica Buchanan says:

    I absolutely love the Samantha tote with the Pax material. This bag is fun and chic! My son is 4 and man oh man do I need a Mommy bag to carry around his loose odds and ends as well as snacks and drinks.

  74. Sara says:

    The Watson pattern is really neat. These are so nice because they don’t look like a diaper bag. It would also be a good bag for the mom of a toddler, which is what I am!

  75. Sam says:

    Great bag!!! Very much more fashionable than what I carry now!!! Would love to win this as it is practicle and functional all in one.

  76. Barb J says:

    great baby shower gift.

  77. So practical and so cute! I never had a good sunhat for my kiddos and I am definitely going to have one for the next. I would love to win a cute and fashionable diaper tote! Our current “diaper bag” is actually a hiking hip back. It was a compromise with my husband so he would carry it. Now that one can be his and I want one for myself! lol

  78. nan says:

    i’d love to win, their flutter and sprout designs are so modern..not babyish looking, thanks for the chance

  80. Shannon L Barlow says:

  85. Jill Myrick says:

    I love the look and style of the Kokopax Tote and all of the available storage that it offers.
    Even after my baby outgrows it it would make perfect tote or purse.
