Go Go Babyz Sidekick Bliss

The Go Go Babyz Sidekick Bliss is a diaper bag combined with a baby carrier. With this unique invention you can carry your baby and diaper bag simultaneously. If you are over burdened and overwhelmed with having to carry your diaper bag, baby and purse when going out and about then you will find the Sidekick Bliss interesting.

Bag features:

  • Wear the bag over your shoulder, around your waist or across your shoulder (messenger bag style)
  • Adjustable bag allows you to carry baby on either side
  • Nylon fabric is wipe clean
  • Key clip, cell phone pocket, and many easily accessible pockets
  • Double side pockets for bottles or sippy cups
  • Removable insulated bottle/snack pouch and changing pad
  • For use by babies with good head control
  • Max baby weight – 35 lbs
  • Carrier built into top flap of bag
  • $120
  • Bag colors – yellow, gray, purple

How to use the carrier:

  • Secure the diaper bag around your waist (shoulder strap is now a waist strap)
  • Unroll and unzip carrier out of top flap
  • Put baby on hip (baby essentially sits on the bag)
  • Put strap over head
  • Adjust straps and padding for secure fit
The Sidekick also comes in a Deluxe version (additional pockets, leather bottom and trim, luxe interior fabric) and Shift version (carrier is removable from bag) .
The general consensus of the Sidekick Bliss is that the bag size is decent but not large. If you are using it solely as a diaper bag it won’t hold much more than the essentials.

The carrier is safe but not as secure as a traditional carrier. Some reviewers state that they felt the need to still have one hand around baby at all time. This gives you some sense of freedom but not 100% hands free.

I am not totally convinced that the Go Go Babyz Sidekick Bliss is an ideal bag. The concept is great but I worry about the security of the baby and the weight of the over the head strap resting on one shoulder. I do not think this is a carrier that can be worn for extended periods of time. It is perfect for airport travel, city living, errands.
