Best Baby Diaper Bags: 6 Must-Haves for Your New Tote
Posted on 06 October 2012
1. Changing pad - The best baby diaper bags include a wipe-clean changing pad to make diaper changes anywhere easy.
2. Bottle pockets - Just like a purse, you want a diaper bag to stay organized. Bottle pockets help keep milk from leaking out (even if you lost the cover to the bottle), and often have room to keep a small ice pack. Extra pockets to sort other necessities, including your keys and cellphone, are great, so your diaper bag can double as your purse.
3. Is this a bag a new mom -- specifically, the mom you're buying it for -- will carry? - While pregnant and after having a baby, women often feel as if they've given up a lot of their identity. Maternity clothes and nursing bras don't always make women feel attractive. The best diaper bags give new moms a new way to flaunt their fashion sense and embrace their own style once again. Diaper bags don't have to be adorned with cartoon characters or cute baby animals, and they definitely don't have to be pastel. Today's best diaper bags look just like any other pocketbook a woman might carry, but with all the necessities for a baby tucked inside.
4. Versatile for a variety of outfits - While you might have half a dozen purses to go with every outfit, new moms are notoriously pressed for time. You don't want a diaper bag that you have to change every day, or once a week. Classic, faux leather styles in basic blacks or browns go with any outfit, and take you seamlessly from the park to the doctor's appointment to playdates. (Do new moms really go anywhere else?0
5. Durable and easy to clean - More so than any other purse or bag you will carry, you want a diaper bag to be easy to clean. Look for a material that wipes clean so formula, breastmilk, baby food and anything else your baby or toddler might get on the bag cleans off with a baby wipe (because you'll always have one of those handy!)
