This was especially true when it came to feeding. Originally, I told myself we would breastfeed―exclusively. I had built up the idea in my mind that this was the correct way of feeding my child, and that anything else was somehow cheating. Plus, I love the connection it brought us, and so many of my favorite early memories are just my baby and me (at all hours of night), as close as two people can be as I fed her from my breast. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/16/ca/71/16ca71ef8e887fc76d7bb1cfc4370bc2.jpg
This is an enormous and stylish black vegan leather diaper bag with every pocket, compartment, and nook and cranny you need to make for a perfect journey with your baby! In our testing, this designer baby diaper bag received the most attention from other moms - every time we used it we got comments about how nice it is and questions about where we found it. And we were not surprised given just how nice this bag is. It is designed as a large tote, coming in at about 19" wide, 13" high, and 7" deep, meaning that it has nearly a full cubic foot of space inside, which is really cavernous! And it's not just inside space that makes this diaper bag amazing, it's also the two zippered outside pockets and the five additional outside pouches that are perfect for quick access to baby wipes, bottles, pacifiers, and the included changing pad (using the large back outside pocket). There is an amazing lined pocket on the front that can be used for anything wet - like a wet bathing suit or clothing, while keeping the rest of the bag and its contents dry. It also has two insulated pockets on the inside that are perfect for keeping a bottle or snack chilled during a trip, and a ton of additional space that is perfect for holding a nursing cover, blanket, change of clothes, and more. The changing pad comes with a little travel pouch that's the right size for a diaper and wipes when you want something to quickly bring with you to the changing table. It also includes a shoulder strap that you can use to carry it across your chest, and it also includes stroller straps to help you attach it to your stroller (but be careful with that!). We loved nearly everything about this black faux leather diaper bag, and thought it was an amazing addition to this year's diaper bag buying guide. The Honest Company also makes a backpack version of this bag, called the Honest Company City Backpack Diaper Bag, for about the same price, that is worth checking out if you prefer that style. Downfalls? Well if we're being really picky, the zippers were finicky sometimes, and the tote straps were a good size for holding with your hand or forearm but not quite big enough to put on your shoulder. But those are relatively minor points that are about our subjective experience. But one big challenge with this bag is the price, coming in at around $150 or so which seems expensive for a faux leather diaper bag. If you love the styling but want to save some cash, check out the Skip Hop Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Bag that has a very similar look and functionality but is a little bit smaller and only about half the price.

The Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote (ZOUT) is designed to make life easier for you. With seven exterior pockets, there isn’t much this versatile tote can’t hold. Take it with you on your trip to the beach, pool or park, or add a Fold N’ File to take your office or school work with you while keeping it all organized. Use it as a diaper bag when you’re out and about with the baby. When you’re at home, use it to organize your car, basement, closets, or laundry room. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/eb/47/47/eb474760ab6a7ff5a693e8c274753d94--thirty-one-bags-thirty-one-gifts.jpg

The Nightlight selected the B.F.F. as the best diaper bag and Lucie’s List named it one of its top picks in 2017. It comes in nearly 50 patterns and colors that range from the prim to the nautical, to the adorable (yes, the bag comes in more than one Hello Kitty pattern). In online reviews, owners (mostly moms) rave about the design of its pockets and how easy the bag is to clean. And though there are some complaints that it’s not roomy enough, others say it has plenty of space, even for cloth diapers. “We tried SO many diaper bags before finally investing in this one,” said one owner. “This bag fit all the criteria and more! I can easily fit my cloth diapers, extra outfits, everything for me, her jacket, water bottle, snacks for me, and so much more. I love that it is so easy to care for this bag and I can toss it in the wash.”
2) I'm letting go of guilt because...the right bottle will prevent any discomfort. It took us a bit of trial and error to find the right bottle that worked for my baby, but once we did, we rarely dealt with gas or discomfort―and the convenience of being able to pack along a meal for my child meant she never had to wait to eat when she was hungry. Dr. Brown's became my partner in this process, offering a wide variety of bottles and nipples designed to mimic the flow of my own milk and reduce colic and excess spitting up. When we found the right one, it changed everything.
While the Thirty One Gifts catalog shows beautiful traditional purses, they are only a small part of the impressive product catalog made available to lucky 31 Gifts party goers. From large totes that are ideal to bring along to the beach to small organizational pouches for home use, shoppers enjoy the selection of fabrics, embroidery customization options and matching accessories available for each product. With a color and pattern palette that greets each season with exciting new offerings and secret hostess-exclusive items, there’s a little something for everyone under the Thirty One Gifts umbrella. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/27/68/b9/2768b9093201ee54bb6550121f7f7575.jpg
It has plenty of interior and exterior pockets to organize all our stuff (even for all 3 kids). It has shoulder straps and a removable cross-body strap, it has clips to attach it so a stroller, it zips closed (and has a couple zippered outside pockets), it’s big enough but not TOO big, and it’s super cute! In fact, most people don’t even realize it’s a diaper bag until they see the sippy cups popping out! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/25/86/ff/2586ffcafb47b93e191c9de1aa93b6d0--swarovski-polyvore.jpg
The Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack is a common competitor to the Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F., and it offers many of the same advantages: It can be converted into a backpack, messenger, or shoulder bag, though the straps are not padded and can’t be removed like the B.F.F.’s. We liked the metal keyring, a feature that we also found in the B.F.F. but didn’t find in the other bags we reviewed. (The DadGear Backpack has a plastic key ring, but its quality was not as nice.) We especially liked the Boxy Backpack’s changing station: a cushioned changing pad folds out from the front of the backpack, revealing two elastic pockets that hold the diapers and wipes. With everything in one place, diaper changing with a squirmy, uncooperative baby was more manageable than with any of the other diaper bags we tested. Unfortunately, the Petunia Pickle Bottom has only two small open pockets, which aren’t big enough to accommodate a reusable water bottle (you can shove a disposable 16.9-ounce plastic water into the pocket, but it’s a tight fit)—and these outside pockets proved extremely useful on our other picks. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/3f/9c/32/3f9c328f9d6e585f75dcb8a789a34b59--event-planning-design-wedding-details.jpg
At the top of the bag, a discreet zippered pocket securely holds your smartphone and keys. Another, much larger zippered pocket that runs across the front of the bag can fit a book or e-reader, large wallet, and other miscellaneous items. Inside the main zippered compartment are two elastic pockets for diapers and wipes, along with two narrow, tiny pockets that could hold pens and pencils for you or an older child (but not much more).
Thirty One is already the go-to source for durable and stylish totes, backpacks, purses, home decor and now baby––and all with the ability to be personalized. The new baby line isn’t just for families with infants. Sure, there are some seriously adorable diaper bags, bottle thermals, baby caddies and even whimsical pillow designs for the nursery. But it’s also for those of us with big kids too! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/c7/2c/c7/c72cc733fbe8f93d1704aff783c570e7--blue-delphinium-delphiniums.jpg
Staying organized when you are a parent is no easy feat. This diaper backpack from Graco will make the task just a bit easier with multiple pockets that are made for bottles, burp cloths, and even a wipes dispenser. It also has smaller pockets on the inside to house keys, medical supplies, cell phones, and more. Along with all of the pockets, this diaper backpack also comes with a changing pad which makes changing diapers on-the-go easy. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/c1/cc/0b/c1cc0bc7a6db74f4b7a3cfc4281bfd06.jpg
