Diaper Bag Discussion: From Drab to Designer!

There are a few things in life we just can’t live without and if you’re a parent, a diaper bag is certainly one of them. When it comes to everyday use, think of this accessory as more of a lifeline as it will come close to solving all those daily messes and tantrums we experience day in and day out. Let’s take the opportunity to discuss the key factors that are necessary in a quality and reliable diaper bag because let’s face it, if you’re going to pack your life up in one bag, you might as well make it a good one!

Style: Just as this was a factor when choosing your baby’s crib, bedding, and nursery décor, your diaper bag should exude your personality and lifestyle. The diaper bag market has truly expanded and now offers many types of bags that work with your daily activities, not against them. Think about the errands you do, the places you go, and how long your trips usually are in order to determine the right style that works best for you. Backpack and messenger diaper bag models are great for parents on the go while purse and tote diaper bags are appealing because their style is nearly identical to the designer bags we carry around on a regular basis and don’t convey the typical drab “diaper bag” look.

Storage: As parents, we’re always striving to be more organized in our lives. With that in mind, it’s a great idea to invest in reliable products such as a multi-pocketed diaper bag in order to make that goal much easier to obtain. When it comes to picking the best diaper bag for you and your baby, pockets and pouches are your best friends. Between the wipes, diapers, creams, baby bottles, toys, crib blankets, sunscreen, pacifiers, car keys and cell phone, you’re life will be a lot easier once each item is in their proper place and is arm’s length away.

Versatility: With all of your diaper bag basics aside, it’s great to look for the little things that can add a world of difference. A selection of diaper bag styles are specialized for attaching to strollers, allowing you to have extra storage space for playground visits, family vacations, or errands like doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping. An added bonus is diaper bag sets that include washable changing pads, baby bottle carriers, or separate pouches to take with you on short trips that don’t require you to lug your entire bag around everywhere you go.

    Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags and totes have been quite popular with my mommy friends the last couple years. I have the Boxy Backpack in blue/brown chenille fabric, and it is wonderful! I am lusting after the “cake” line of Petunias, especially the Cosmo Carryall in Cherry Chocolate Cake – Yummy! (see link at bottom) I also have a Betsey Johnson diaper bag that I absolutely love. The fabric is really easy to clean, it is spacious and has easy access to everything in it. I love the unique style of it! A local boutique near me offers a great selection of Petunias online with free shipping – chickybella.com

    I am always so quick to transition out of my diaper bags and back in to my own adult bags, however with ones that look this great I might never need to switch!

    I just got the same Skip Hop bag that you featured at the beginning of this post in the mail last week and LOVE it. I was having such a hard time coming up with an affordable – somewhat stylish diaper bag, and that’s what I decided on!!!
