  1. I have never heard of this bag either but it appears to be really nice and love all the room! versitile and usable

  2. We don’t have a bag for my husband and he hates carrying mine! I love the messenger bag for the style as well as the many pockets including the antimicrobial pocket.

  3. I like that the bags clip to your stroller, making them more accessible to you and leaving room in the bottom of the stroller for other items. They look like very well designed diaper bags!

  4. I would LOVE to win either bag because my husband would totally use this bag and not complain it is to girly for him to carry :o)

  5. I have never heard of this bag actually but it looks stylish and of great quality. I would love to own one. As a single mom i don’t have anyone to give a father’s day gift to but i think single moms deserve father’s day gifts. I have always wanted a bag like in that movie “One Fine Day” with Michelle Pfeiffer who has that Super Mom bag. This Skip Hop bag look like just the bag for the super mom that sigle moms are. Its looks like a truely awesome bag and i would love to own one.

  6. I have never heard of a skip hop diaper bag , they are probably outside my budget 🙁 As a single mom i have no one to give a gift to on fathers day. I like to think that the single moms should be honored on Father’s day as well since we do it all. Like that movie “One Fine Day” We need one of those big Michelle Pfeiffer bags that hold everything. This skip hop diaper bag looks like fabulous quality and would work perfectly for the Super moms too. I think it looks like its stylish and a great quality. I have never had one but would like one.

  7. I love it. My hubby ( new daddy) needs his own diaper bag! He would love the Benton ultimate diaper bag! He would love the shuttle clips and insulated pockets! Very cool!

  8. I love how they are great for moms & dads both to carry… not to mention the ease in cleaning it and the stroller-clipping ability 🙂 What’s not to love about the bag?!

  9. I love the shuttle clips so that it can attach to any stroller! Also, i just love the style of the bag! It’s definitely a diaper bag my husband would love to carry around 🙂

  10. I love all the features, but especially all the pockets. I hate having everything I need in one bag, but not being able to find it in the jumbled mess inside. Organizing everything in pockets is a great solution.

  11. I {heart} Skip Hop diaper bags! My favorite feature is how easily they clip to my stroller. Makes for an easy day of shopping 🙂

  12. I would be very happy to be able to win one of the diaper bags, the one I would like to win is the messenger style bag! It would be the perfect Size to carry everything, and my husband would actually love carrying it around 🙂

  13. I love all the room, the food compartments & that it clips on to strollers!

    Oh, and that either bag would be one my husband would carry with out complaint!

  14. I love the Skip Hop bags – but I’d love to win the Bento bag because of all that food storage. That is an amazing feature.

  15. The first (of many) things that made me a Skip Hop fan is the way all their bags are so user friendly and clip onto any stroller!

  16. I love that the Skip Hop bags can hold everything I need for a day trip. They are also the best quality bag I’ve owned.

  17. id totally love to win the bag bc i can really use a new diaper bag all the ones i have are from my first two kids and are falling apart

  18. I’d love to get one of these for my niece who just had her son… after two daughters, she needs something organized and not pink!

  19. I love that the bento comes with the food storage containers and cooler bag. This would be perfect for us since baby #2 is due on Sunday.

  20. The best part about the skip hop bags is how they attach to the stroller so easily, unlike other bags that have detachable stroller clips, you can’t lose these!! Love it!

  21. I absolutely love the SKIP HOP MESSENGER BAG FOR MY HUSBAND!!! He doesnt usually participate with the kids and this would be a great way to get him involved somehow! 🙂

  22. I like the bento bag best! Although the messenger is a close second. My favorite feature is that they clip on and off a stroller so easily!

  23. Wow! I love how the messenger bag has 18 pockets. I need more pockets. And the diaper bag is great with the food compartments, I love it!!!

  24. I love the insulated mealtime kit, all the pockets (I am so disorganized), and the padded straps. This would be used to the max and treated with so much love and care. Please pick us to win!

  25. The bento really IS the ultimate!! I love how it’s super functional for families on the go….like us!! With baby#3 on the way in July, this bag would be awesome!

  26. Love that all Skip Hop diaper bags look modern and clean. Also love the colors & that they’re not overly babyish.

  27. I Tweeted the giveaway! Melissa A. (@Gen251) has shared a Tweet with you:

    “Gen251: Skip hop diaper bag giveaway! #BabyGizmoGiveaway”

  28. I love Skip Hop products and definitely would love to have one of the Ultimate Diaper Bag because I’m obsessed with organization. I really like the insulated meal kit with all the matching containers.

  29. I love the built in stroller clips. My old skiphop has lasted 3 kids and 6 years. Even if I dint win I will def be buying another

  30. I LOVE LOOOVE that it has a compartment for keeping food in its own special place and containers to store snacks AND an insulated cooler bag. I’ve always had a difficult time keeping track of the food and snacks and keeping it cold. This would definitely help keep me organized and food fresh. Especially great for a toddler and a baby that’s just starting solids.

  31. What a cool diaper bag! Between the meal storage, stroller straps, and functional style, what’s not to love!

  32. I love the Bento Skip Hop features better! I like that it comes with its own food storage system so you don’t have to take up more room putting food jars and what not in pockets that can be used for toys, bottles, etc… I also like the versatility of wearing it tote style (like I do) or messenger style (like hubby does). This would be a great bag for us because it isn’t to girly, and I know my hubby would use it a lot!!

  33. I love that the Bento comes with food containers because our baby is starting solids soon, and it will be great to be able to take our homemade food on-the-go.

  34. I absolutely love the Skip Hop Messenger bag (and “Daddy” would love it too)! The shoulder strap, would be what I love the best… And he’d start carrying around the manly diaper bag with pride!

  35. The stroller straps are by far the best feature…especially because they can attach to a double stroller with ease and can be put on and taken off *almost* single-handedly. 🙂

  36. Love the cooler storage!! And love all the room and pockets in the messenger bag!! Would love this for my hubs!! 🙂

  37. My favorite feature about the Skip Hop bags are the STROLLER STRAPS! I have owned 3 skip hops and I would love another one!

  38. I like that Skip Hop offers organization! It is key to a mommy with 3 kids….and even more key when I ask dad to get something out of the diaper bag & it’s good to go! =)

  39. Both of these bags are awesome! Both look like they have tons of storage space and the stroller clips would be so much better than hanging the bag and kicking it every time we step!

  40. i would love to win this for my husband , im sure he’d appreciate not having to carry my pink flowered diaper bag around anymore haha

  41. I love the design if the Skip Hop Via Messenger Bag! It could double as a laptop bag and diaper bag for my husband without making him feel like he’s carrying a girlie diaper bag. Great products!

  42. Love the messenger bag. The hands free part of it would be perfect for my husband who is too busy playing with our little girl to keep track of a bag!

  43. Oh I have had my eye on the Bento! This is the best dipaer bag! It is very roomy and has awesome compartments! I hope I win! Either way I will be getting it for baby #2 by August! Thanks Baby Gizmo!

  44. I like the mealtime kit in the Bento! Hubby would probably like the messenger better, seems like a dad friendly design 🙂

  45. Love the messenger back andll the pockets! It would be great for my husband since he’s the one who carries everything! 😉 plus the color green is awesome

  46. Oh my gosh, I would love to win the Bento diaper bag, my husband would love it as well, then maybe he’d be willing to carry the bag rather then the cheap girly one we have now!!! I also love how it come with the snack contaniers and the most amazing part that I would most be looking forward to would be the cooler bag!!!! 🙂

  47. I like the VIA messenger bag! Love that it has 18 pockets and the antimicrobial pocket!! I have a PINK diaper bag and I have a baby boy! Definitely wouldn’t mind a new diaper bag! 🙂

  48. I love that the Messenger Bag can hang on the stroller! And it has “feet” to keep the bottom off the floor!

  49. Now that my son is eating table food, I find my diaper bag overflowing with little ziploc baggies and containers of food and snacks! I’d love the bento bag, because it would keep everything so nice and organized!

  50. These bags are great. I would love to have one for my 1 year old and 3 month old twins (34 weeks 5 days between them!!)

  51. I like the Bento bag, because of the food storage containers and freezer compartment!! I have a 9 month old, and make all his food, and that would be awesome for when we go out!! Plus it looks like there’s lots of room in it, and baby #2 is on it’s way 🙂

  52. I tweeted about it @nllmdesigns here is the tweet: #BabyGizmoGiveaway Thursday is the New Friday Giveaway features two fabulous Skip Hop Diaper Bags great for dad #BabyGizmoGiveaway!

  53. I love my SkipHop Diaper Bags’s many storage pockets! But my favorite feature on the bag, is the inside clips to attach the bag to any shopping cart or stroller! Such a space saver!!

  54. I lovvvee the bento bag!! My husband constantly complains about my girly diaper bags so this would be perfect for him!!

  55. Love the bento ultimate. Dad makes his own baby food so it would be great to have all the snack containers and cooler compartments!

  56. Awesome Skip Hop bags! Love all the pockets and organization designed into the diaper bag. Plus the clips and cool styling. I have my fingers crossed for this!!!

  57. I love the insulated dompartment of the BENTO diaper bag!! So ingenious with the clickit storage containers too!

  58. I recently shut my diaper bag in the car door and the buckle broke so we could really use a new diaper bag, and dad friendly would be a real plus! Also I love the insulated bottle pockets. They rock!

  59. I recently shut my diaper bag in the car door and the buckle broke so we could really use a new diaper bag, and dad friendly would be a real plus!

  60. I love the feature of many pockets and shuttle clip on both. I guess I might like the look of the messenger bag better

  61. I love all the pockets they have .. it really helps with keeping things organized. And love love love the shuttle clips.

  62. Would be a great bag for me to take out and about — my wife insists on super girly matchy matchy diaper bags that just look silly on me (dad)

  63. I love the fact that the bags are usfeful for us moms, but ny hubby would be totally ok with carrying it and not feeling feminine

  64. My fave feature of the super-chic skiphop bags is how it can attach to strollers with the side connector straps. It is so versatile and simply awesome!

  65. I love the meal kit that comes with the ultimate diaper bag! Also love that the colors are very neutral but awesome!

  66. Love how the BENTO includes an insulated MEALTIME KIT with CLIX containers and it snaps onto the stroller. Sounds pretty great!

  67. We have a smaller Skip Hop bag and Love all the pockets. It’s great for short trips with baby but we would love a bigger bag for longer trips or for when baby starts eating solids and we have to lug around snacks!

  68. I like that it is a great looking bag that my husband and I both can feel comfortable wearing. Not too many bags out there like that.

  69. Oh my gosh!! We were just talking about how much we would love the Bento bag! Perfect for my son who has lots of food allergies – so we have to take a lunch box AND a diaper bag. I love that the Bento is 2-in-1!!

  70. Would love to win this bag for my husband. I LOVE that it can fit everything with all the pockets. It can be organized and still be stylish for men.

  71. I love these bags!!! I absolutely love how all the straps are padded, and how it clips onto strollers which is very convenient and also that there is mealtime accessories!

  72. My husband always leaves our bright pink diaer bag in the car, he refuses to carry it, which has resulted in many messes. This would be great so my baby girl doesnt have to suffer another diaper leak because of daddys pride =P

  73. HI, love both b ags! Something my husband would use w/o stares with our 5 kids! Posted on your facebook and mine!

  74. What’s not to love? Roomy, stylish, stroller clips, food organizer system. This would definitely have to be a share gift

  75. I posted a comment and a link on MY Facebook page. Hope I win so dad can be oh so stylin at Kindermusik class this summer!

  76. This is perfect for my husband who needs a bag that is functional, but doesn’t cramp his style. The cargo pockets are just up his alley.

  77. If I were to win there’s NO WAY I’d be handing this over. I love my Skip Hop bag and can’t use it anymore because the string on the outside bottle/cup pocket broke off and if I try and put a cup in it on the floor it goes. Since I have 2 kids and am always carrying at least 3 drinks (2 water cups and a milk cup) I had to switch to my backpack and I am NOT happy about this.

  78. Love the Skip Hop bags! Favourite feature on the Skip Hop Bento Ultimate Diaper Bag is the insulated MEALTIME KIT with CLIX containers, which slide into a convenient compartment & keeping food in its own special place. And my favourite feature on the Skip Hop Via Messenger bag is 18 large pockets including seven zippered pockets and personal pocket with key fob (= lots of storage space and can be neatly organized). Thanks for this great giveaway!!

  79. I love any diaper bag that is roomy without looking cumbersome – and clipping onto a stroller is a must in my world! Skip Hop makes great products.

  80. Skip Hop products are so thoughtfully made! I am sure my DH would love the fact that they attach easily to the stroller in addition to keeping all of babies essentials handy!

  81. My favorite feature of the Skip Hop Bento Ultimate Diaper Bag is the insulated cooler bag and perfect-fit freezer pack to keep food fresh.

  82. love the shuttle clips,what a great idea! Diaper bags have come a ways since the last time I toted one was 10 yrs ago! Need a nice one for my infant son.

  83. Love that the Bento has the mealtime kit. Snacks never have a ‘good spot’ in my current diaper bag! Love this giveaway. 🙂

  84. I love how Skip Hope bags have so many compartments to keep things organized. That, and they are pretty stylish.

  85. Love these bags for dads! My hubby is in search of just the right bag and I think we found it! Love the colors, the masculine style, the stroller clips and the insulated bottle holder.

  86. I love the red messenger bag. It has the stroller hooks and matches my valco stroller perfectly! Oh, and my husband loves red, so he mught actually take a bag with him!

  87. My DH would love to have his own diaper bag so he can organize it how he wants to instead of messing up my system!

  88. Love the ultimates food system. My kids have food allergies and I have to hall a tone of food around with me. A bag that has a storage system for it already woudl rock!! Black is great so my hubby wont mind carring it.

  89. I love the insulated bottle holder, and I also love that the style is something my husband wouldn’t be embarrassed to carry around!

  90. I would love for my husband to have this. These bags are big and organized enough for my messy, absent minded husband!

  91. Woohoo – first to comment 🙂 I love Skip Hop – love the vibrant colors and roomy bags – everything a baby needs will fit in there!
