I am the proud owner of the JM mini hip pictured, and I have to tell you that it really is great! Fits all I need for my toddler...who is turning 4 in a few days. I still carry a change of clothes for him in a large set, but am thinking that I should leave that home soon. Leaves plenty of room either way for everything else I need though! Love this size bag because:
1) I have a steel behave (and love her), but it doesn't have 2 drink holders 2) I don't have enough to fill a behave or my BFF/BRB/BP when I am not out all day 3) It's easy to navigate...everything is easy to reach. No digging around, or too many pockets to find that ONE thing you need 4) It's sooo cute! Just the right amount of print, and not too overwhelming in size when worn crossbody 5) Anna thought of everything--the zippered pockets are great, and the little snap on the front is attached with a handy loop. Easy to find and attach the flap to magnet=easy to close when crossbody! 6) I don't feel like I have a "diaper bag" when my kiddo is clearly way past the diaper stage...

Re: Mini Hip Owners - Come Post your Pics Here!
And works so well for a quick trip with a 17mth old Loving mine so much I wish the new prints came in a hip! Those soft colours as a mini, with tote straps and zipper would be STUNNING mommy-style bag!!
I have packed in mine: sippy in sippy pocket, light cp in back pocket in front pockets; 2 small pieces and a coinpurse (they have crayons, mommy needs, hairties, bandaids for DS, tavel boogiewipes inside bag; 2 dipes, wipes case, thrifty, 2 small pieces (they have DD's bandaids and hairties, lollipops and p&s camera), snacktrap, tissues, pen, envirosax, chapstick and toy bus Plus I could put in DS' hat and little notebook in the store. GREAT bag size!
I keep coming back to this thread and just staring at them! I think I might have to do this to one or both of my hips. I really like the hip, but it feels so big on....welll....my hip! I am normally a backpack loving girl and have trouble doing the messenger style on a big bag, but I think this would make the hip perfect. I love the lighter fabric of the hip too.....hmmmmm.....decisions! Plus...I'd love a smaller bag instead of so many large ones....oh gosh...I am talking myself into it for sure
