You know what I love? Packing an obscene amount of items in my diaper bag. My husband always jokes that I could get lost in the woods for two weeks and be completely fine because of all the ‘supplies’ I keep with me at all times. Needless to say, while I may be toting around a great deal of gear, my diaper bag is actually very small. That’s due in large part to brilliant brands like Cossettie that offer super compact, super awesome baby products.
I recently connected with Meredith Worniak, a mom of three and one half of the brilliant duo behind Cossettie. Meredith and her sister Rebecca Cutler (also a mom) have created an award-winning line of (I’ll say it one more time) brilliant multi-use baby products that are not only extremely useful, but exceptionally compact. Obviously, I was super excited to collaborate with these fabulous ladies on a review of their products and for the opportunity to indulge my diaper bag hoarder tendencies. When the products actually arrived, I actually gasped out loud at how tiny they were. I’m getting chills just thinking about it now. Allow me to elaborate.
I received the Cossettie Compact Shopping Cart & High Chair Cover and the Cossettie On-the-Go Changing Mat for review. Now, I have two kids, so this isn’t my first high chair cover or changing mat rodeo. That being said, I thought the products that I’d previously used couldn’t have possibly been more convenient. I was wrong. Compared to Cossettie products, my old shopping cart/high chair cover and travel changing mat are downright ginormous. Cossettie products are made from an incredibly lightweight, machine-washable and water-resistant nylon and feature an itty bitty attached storage bag. The products fold up into their ultra convenient storage bags for easy packing and glorious space saving.
Truth be told, on those days when my kids want to bring fourteen stuffed animals with us while we run errands, the shopping cart cover has generally been the item I remove from the diaper bag to make room for our stuffed friends. Target and Giant provide cart wipes, so I feel semi-okay popping the kids directly in the cart. Well, cart wipes be damned! With Cossettie in my corner, I am never without a cart or high chair cover. The cover pops easily onto a high chair or shopping cart seat and secures with elastic, and also includes additional ties if you really need to secure the cover in place. So far, I’ve never needed to use them, but it’s definitely nice to know that they’re there if needed. It’s also designed to accommodate the safety belts on shopping carts and restaurant high chairs, so your kiddos is not only germ free, but super safe as well.
The diaper changing mat is a real baby gear gem. It’s truly amazing how LARGE this cover is considering how small the storage bag is. For some perspective, it’s not only large enough to cover a public restroom changing station, but it almost completely covers the trunk of my Honda Pilot. This means that BOTH of my kids can lay side by side for assembly line style diaper changing when we’re on the go. Considering the fact that most kids wear diapers well into their toddler years, its kindof silly how ridiculously small most diaper bag changing mats are. Cossettie proves that you don’t have to sacrifice function or practicality in order to make the changing mat fit in the bag. The Cossettie changing mat is also large enough to use as picnic blanket or play mat, which makes packing the diaper bag super easy. Additionally, the changing mat can also accommodate changing station safety belts and like the cart cover, conveniently folds up into its attached storage bag.
Cossettie offers a variety of other – you guessed it – BRILLIANT products like cup covers and bibs-in-a-bag. After such a successful experience with the Compact Shopping Cart & High Chair Cover and the Cossettie On-the-Go Changing Mat, I am very eager to give these other products a try!
