Just because you have a new baby, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your style. For a long time, most diaper bags were unsightly loads that new moms were burdened with, but no more. The best diaper bags these days are both functional and fashionable. Not only do they feature tons of pockets, durable materials and convenient carrying options, but they’re also pretty enough to wear even when you aren’t caring for your little one. Who doesn’t love that?
What’s more is that tons of your favorite designers are now getting in on the diaper bag game. Everyone from Marc Jacobs and Tory Burch to Gucci and Prada now offer a few diaper bag options, which means finding a style you love is easier than ever.
Not sure what to look for in a diaper bag? Here are some pointers:
– The strap. Many diaper bags these days come with a long, adjustable strap that you can wear over your shoulder or crossbody style. A long adjustable strap also comes in handy when you’re pushing your stroller because you can slip the strap right over the handles so you don’t have to lug it around. Some of the trendier diaper bags these days do, however, come with shorter, tote-style straps, which are great if you’re looking for a diaper bag that can easily double as a purse. That being said, it’s important to look for stroller clips on diaper bags with shorter handles, so it will easily hook onto your carriage.
– The material. Nylon is probably the most popular material when it comes to the best diaper bags these days. It may not be super luxe, but it is wipeable and easy to clean, which is important when you’re dealing with bottles and other messy essentials. Nylon is also great because it tends to be lightweight, which is a must when you’re carrying around diapers, wipes, bottles, toys and more. On the flip side, there are some beautiful leather diaper bag options on the market. If you choose one of these, just be forewarned that it will probably take a beating and it can definitely get quite heavy when it’s fully stocked.
– The storage space. Pockets, pockets, pockets! If there’s one thing any good diaper bag needs, it’s lots of pockets. Think special pockets for bottles, pacifiers, wipes and even a hook for your keys. Because your diaper bag will be that place you toss any and everything, it’s super important that there are as many specialized pockets as necessary to help you stay organized.
– The size. The size of your diaper bag is really a matter of personal preference. As you’re narrowing down your options, think about how you’ll be using your diaper bag. If you’re planning to store all of your little one’s necessities for an entire day in the diaper bag, you’ll probably want to choose a roomier diaper bag. On the flip side, if you anticipate making multiple trips home during the day when you can refill and restock, then a smaller diaper bag may be a great option for you.
