When Paulina and I got to designing the FirstBorn, we wanted to make sure this piece of dad gear was ON POINT! It needed to be FLY (obvi... it's in the company name ), but it needed to be CLUTCH AF! Ok, STORY TIME!!
When my daughter Sam was almost 2 y/o, I had a particularly shitty moment. I was driving back home after dropping my oldest off at a dance lesson, when Sam started blowing chunks in the back seat. Then I smelled what I already knew was a fresh batch of baby diarrhea.
I pulled over fast and jumped out of the car to help her and figure out what to do. I held her and let her continue letting go of what she needed. Then I ransacked the trunk for my wife's baby bag (the pink, white and blue Minnie Mouse one you're seeing here).
I was trying to grab the wipes to clean her up. Well... I HATE digging through bags (anything really) I need to have my stuff easily stowed and accessible so I can quickly get in and out. This Minnie Mouse diaper bag gave no F's about what I wanted... I had to dig to the bottom of that thing and pull out the wipes. In doing so I pulled out a whole bunch of other stuff I didn't need and just let it sit all over the back seat while I got to work.
In the end, Sam stopped spewing (from both ends) and I was able to clean her up enough so she'd be comfortable for the rest of the ride home. I never forgot how PISSED I was that I couldn't get the blasted wipes easily and that all this other stuff ended scattered throughout the car for me to pick up later.
This is why I LOVE the wipes compartment on the FirstBorn and why I'm sure when you get yours you will to. I want for you to never have to be roadside Manny cleaning up your kid while having a UFC match with a damn diaper bag. You deserve better!
