6 Stylish Diaper Bags

Parents with babies often feel forced to sacrifice style for function daily. As pretty as they are, many purses don’t hold bottles, wipes or diapers — and don’t even get us started on the stain risk you take by having your favorite bag near a baby.

Every parent knows that having an infant means toting around a lot of baby gear. Carrying everything you need for a day (or night, you lucky thing) out with your baby doesn’t mean you have to give up looking good; stylish diaper bags are available, and they mean you can look great and still be prepared for whatever blowouts come your way. Before you purchase a diaper bag, consider where you’ll be using it and how long you’ll be away from home. You can choose the best diaper bag for any situation. With all the choices in stylish diaper bags, you just might need two.

There’s no need to sacrifice style just because you need something for all that baby gear. Even when it’s filled with diapers, bottles, and wipes, a diaper bag can be just as trendy as your handbag (and sometimes maybe even more!).

Mothers don’t have to give up their style when they become a parent. While some parents are fine with the plastic and cheaper diaper bags, many mothers prefer to select one of the best designer diaper bags. I prefer a designer diaper bag because I use my diaper bag as my purse. Instead of carrying two bags, I like to have a diaper bag that I enjoy, and that represents who I am as a person.

My one rule when I became a mother 15 years ago was that my diaper bag will never even remotely resemble a diaper bag. People who know me will tell you — I don’t do ugly. I’m not carrying some heavy, frumpy diaper bag. With all the options out there, especially with the eCommerce boom of the past two decades, you don’t need to sacrifice style for functionality anymore. So, I set out on a search for a diaper bag that I could use from day to night.

The Okiedog Urban Sphinx is Shell’s diaper bag of choice. One of the benefits that he sees in this bag is that it is easy to clean. Another plus? Shell found that this bag truly pulls double-duty when it comes to carrying around more than just diapers. “I’ll admit, even though my son is now 4 years old and I no longer need a diaper bag for him, I still use my ‘daddy diaper bag’ to keep my stuff in,” he says.

2.Diaper Dude True Dude Collection

Diaper Dude is one of the veterans of the ever-expanding dad diaper bag world. The brand is continuing to create good dad-centric bags and do good in the world with their new True Dude collection.

3.Filberry Designer Diaper Bag

The Filberry Designer Diaper Bag is a messenger-style carry-all with many great features. If you want to keep the profile slim, you can, but if you need to carry lots of stuff there’s plenty of room in the main compartment for diapers, food and extra clothes. A built-in insulated compartment comes in handy if you carry milk or formula. My favorite feature is the zipper along the bag’s top. While carrying the bag over your shoulder, you can open it with one hand, remove the changing pad and supplies without having to set the bag down, keeping your other hand free. Anyone who has tried to change an unhappy infant while on the go knows how useful this is.
