I’ve been using this bag for 2 wks since my return to work and it has worked well. The Spectra 2 pump fits well and I like that I can leave the pump in the bag with everything attached when I use it, it really cuts down on the time spent setting up and putting away pumping supplies which adds up when you’re pumping 4 times a day. I also have the cooler and the spectra/medela bottles fit well inside with the ice pack. I like that the cooler looks like a lunch bag so it’s not obvious to my coworkers that I’m putting my breast milk next to their salad in the work fridge.
The bag itself is constructed well and the materials look and feel great. The Berry Bloom fabric is lovely (and it matches the Spectra 2 colors perfectly if that’s your jam). It fits my laptop in the side pocket and has plenty of room for extra pumping parts and whatever I need to take to work with me. The straps are comfortable and it is comfortable to carry on my shoulder, even when full.
The one thing I took a star off for is that there is no false bottom in the bag between the main compartment and the side access compartments on the bottom of the bag. There are snaps in there like something is supposed to attach but I’m not sure what goes there. Small things get lost in the folds around the side compartments and the fact that there is no firm/flat bottom makes organizing the bag a bit sloppy since you can’t neatly stack items. It’s not a huge deal, but I do more digging in the bag than I’d like to.
Overall, it’s a great bag and I would recommend it to anyone, especially since the choices for cute pumping bags at a decent price are so slim. I can see myself using it for the next baby and even after I'm done pumping. I’ve already had 2 people ask me where I got it (one a pumping mom at work and another just thought it was a work bag).
I love the Lizzy bag and the matching pumparoo and cold gold. Berry Bloom is such a cheery pattern and I have gotten so many compliments on it.
This is my third Lizzy (don’t judge!), and I’m in love with all the pockets and the new berry print! I even threw on a pink sweater to coordinate the first day I carried it. 🙈 It’s even more beautiful in person than the pictures can convey! I’m using it as a diaper bag until I go back to work, but I know I’ll love it for a pump bag- I’m going on year three of my other Lizzy, it became my school bag when I was done pumping with my first kid. They last forever! You need this!
