One is a laptop bag that I liked and decided to turn into a diaper bag. It's about the same width and height, but it's only about 4" deep. It could use a few more pockets since it only has the one... the laptop compartment - I use it for diapers, wipes and changing pad. Everything else is in a jumbled heap in the main compartment. Eh, it works. Slightly annoying, but it works. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/4d/cc/ec/4dccec9c95603534143b65c86425d923--group-lashes.jpg

When the time came to ditch the diaper bag, I jumped for joy. I never liked toting around a huge bag, but was still surprised that even though I now have a five-year-old, we still cart around a lot of stuff! Now that we are involved in school and sports, it turns out I still need a decent bag that’s both functional and stylish. Just as we signed up for the upcoming summer swim team (that requires tons of swim accessories!), one of my favorite companies released a baby line- Baby by Thirty One!
I have to start out this post with a confession…I am addicted to bags.  I really am–I love bags and I love getting new bags.  My addiction has paid off because I think I have found you all the ultimate diaper bag!   I have been a fan of the company since I first heard of them because they sell my favorite thing—bags!  They offer all different styles and sizes of bags, and I was lucky enough to work with them to review one of their hostess exclusive  items the Suite Success Tote in Big Dot.  (A hostess exclusive item is an item that only a hostess of a Thirty-One party can purchase.  This item is not available to for regular purchase.)    https://i.pinimg.com/345x/e0/e4/d5/e0e4d576db8801ae6114f851d7877571.jpg

The Skip Hop Duo Signature, at 1¾ pounds, was one of the more lightweight bags we tested, yet it felt sturdy and durable despite being shoved, tossed, and dragged around at the beach, on a 5-hour plane ride, and to the pediatrician’s office. Like the better bags we considered, it can be carried multiple ways: An adjustable, padded strap is comfortable to carry on a shoulder, and its tote handles make it easy to set down on a floor (like the best bags we saw, it stands upright). The secret to its superior accessibility is a perfect combination of open and zippered pockets—it’s the most intuitive and effortless bag we saw for stowing and retrieving water bottles and toys at a moment’s notice, it can keep valuables secure, and it’s clear what goes where in the bag. A wipeable polyester interior is straightforward to clean; within five minutes we removed all evidence of spilled milk and crushed Cheerios left in the bag for 24 hours. With a strong rating across more than 1,000 Amazon user reviews, it’s extremely popular, and at its current price of about $50 to $60, it’s one of the most affordable bags we tested—plus, it has better overall features than other competitors we tested in its price range. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/b0/de/b7/b0deb796f6dfdcb4b84134105bff6e55.jpg


Over the last 4.5 years, we have tried more diaper bags than I can count. Many were purchased online and immediately returned. Others were given to us as gifts, to review on the blog, or as hand-me-downs from friends. They were either used for a while, sold on Craigslist, or returned to the store — depending on the situation. Some were too big, many were too small, some looked too much like a purse for Dave, others didn’t have enough pockets for me, etc. etc. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/35/56/70/35567050b5cc8d6a5a3c3ceae0e3be20.jpg
Thirty One Organizing Pack in Party Punch - 3984 Has interior compartments galore, making it a great camera bag or diaper bag … just fill it with whatever you need for the day! The inside organizing compartments can be removed and rearranged so they’re just the way you need them. It even comes with a thermal-lined water bottle holder in a coordinating print! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/4f/0c/31/4f0c31bd531b08f8aab8a93fc44abb74.jpg

We did not consider cult-favorite brand Timi & Leslie because almost all of its bags are made with leather and weigh 2 pounds or more. The OiOi and JJ Cole diaper bags are also on the heavier side, according to their online specs. We were intrigued by some of the newest diaper bags available, such as the Boken Diaper Bag, a lightweight, convertible diaper bag, and the Paperclip Diaper Bag, aimed at dads, with a built-in changing station for when a changing table isn’t available in the men’s restroom. (Like the Petunia Pickle Bottom boxy backpack, the changing pad folds out from the front of the bag; the Paperclip also has a wall on both sides.). Unfortunately, enough customers complained about broken zippers with the Boken Diaper Bag that we decided to hold off on field-testing it, and at the time of our review, the Paperclip Diaper Bag cost over $200. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/f4/f5/d7/f4f5d7c98ec77306c41b447dcd43447a.jpg

I was also sent the adorable icon coin purses to review, and they are so fun!  All of my three kids got one to put on their backpacks for lunch money or chapstick.  They love that they have a special place for their important items and it really helps them to keep track of their lunch money better.  I like that you can mix and match the coin purses with the whimsical characters and bright colors.  They look great on a black bag as a pop of color or on a child’s backpack.  They are also the perfect size for a pacifier holder on your diaper bag!  


Beyond comfort, the B.F.F. earns its name thanks to its multiple mom-friendly features: Teflon-treated, stain-repelling outer fabric, an antimicrobial interior lining that reduces odor-causing bacteria and mildew (in case, you know, a bottle spills and you forget about it), and the ability to toss the whole thing in the washing machine if, despite all of the above, it needs a good cleaning.
"Our study shows that bearded men harbour significantly higher burden of microbes and more human-pathogenic strains than dogs," the authors wrote, noting that when MRI scanners are used for both dogs and humans, they're cleaned very well after veterinary use, and actually have a "lower bacterial load compared with scanners used exclusively for humans." https://i.pinimg.com/236x/6d/02/01/6d0201521fa675f41b6072ce8a42dcf2--glitter-eye-makeup-brown-eyes-makeup.jpg
Expecting twins? Skip Hop’s signature Duo diaper bag comes in a bigger model that’s perfect for parents of multiples or those with two under two. The Duo Double’s generous size—it’s 18 inches long and 13.25 inches high—and 16 pockets (including two insulated bottle pockets) make it an ideal diaper bag for parents who need to tote around two of everything. Plus, the Duo Double boasts that it’s the only diaper bag designed for specifically for side-by-side double strollers. (In fact, it’s not for use with single strollers). It also has tote straps and a removable messenger strap, as well as an included changing pad.
Working at 31 gifts I really was focused on my customers and the relationships with them. I did not work for 31 to promote or make a lot of money. I wanted to connect with people and help them in the way of customer service I hadn't previously experienced. I learned more about communication and the most rewarding part of the job was when a customer was completely satisfied and referred me as a consultant to a friend. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/63/98/67/63986718ddebadab436224a8b166f428.jpg

The Land series has a generous insulated front zippered pocket to hold three slim bottles, and an exterior wipes pocket. In the back, it has an additional large zippered pocket, a wet pocket, and a zippered tech pocket. Inside, it has several elasticized pockets and a zippered interior pocket for organizing bottles, creams and the like, and plenty of space in the cavity for clothes and diapers.
The BPA-free, phthalate-free polyester bag features 10 handy pockets—including an easy-access tech pocket for your phone—as well as a zip-top closure, tote handles and a shoulder strap with slip-on shoulder pad, and the company’s patented shuttle clips that let you attach it to your stroller. It’s big enough to hold a 15-inch laptop or tablet and comes with a cushioned changing pad. A new front panel design has added to both the storage capacity and stability of the bag. Bonus: It’s available in a wide array of gender-neutral patterns and colors. Overall, it’s a spacious, lightweight, durable, and good-looking diaper bag. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ef/dd/92/efdd92b5524517535d93725e39d893a3---ideas-laundry-detergent.jpg

Lots of transformations happen when you have a baby. Among them: You stop being someone who carries a purse or a wallet and become someone who carries a diaper bag. It doesn’t matter how much of a minimalist mama or papa you are or aspire to be; the fact is, babies and toddlers need stuff—diapers, wipes, pacifiers, extra outfits, baby food pouches, snack puffs, etc., etc.,—and when you’re out in the world with your tiny human, you’re the one responsible for hauling it all around. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/09/ef/ef/09efefe83efeccd43da40b50850f3ab2.jpg
The diaper bag is one of the most important baby essentials for a prepared parent. Once you leave the house, you will need to bring a ton of supplies like diapers, baby wipes, a changing pad, snacks, baby bottles, burping cloths, pacifiers, lotions, diaper rash creams, cloth diapers, and a change of clothes. Plus don't forget your own stuff, like our wallet, phone and keys! The good news is that there are hundreds of baby diaper bags on the market designed to make your life much easier. The bad news is that some of them aren't so great, and some of them are downright ugly! Here is our full diaper bag buying guide. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/77/45/db/7745dbf38d78d70851d2ed8bebb92844.jpg

Like a superhero, the B.F.F. bag transforms from an over-the-shoulder tote to a messenger bag to a backpack in an instant. It can take a beating too—its Teflon-coated material repels dirt and stains and is machine washable. And, parents swoon over the insulated bottle storage and memory-foam shoulder straps. But for those who need a ton of space for cloth diapers, twins or pumping equipment, this bag could run small. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/39/c7/e6/39c7e63ddfb731bf00d9fd55439e92f3.jpg
Our assortment of diaper bags features options to suit every caretaker’s preference, including totes, messenger bags, shoulder bags, and backpacks. There are totes that feature bottle coolers, changing mats, wet bags, and other organizational compartments. Whether you’re looking for a spacious baby bag that attaches to a stroller, a designer style that can double as a purse, or a more compact on-the-go version that works for quick trips in and out of the car, you’ll find tons of options for carrying baby essentials at Amazon. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/18/6a/0f/186a0f79be6aac31a396918cd7e55794.jpg
The Duo, which has been sold since 2003, has been a longtime best-seller from a company that makes almost two dozen different diaper bags. Just about every retailer we visited—chains, boutiques, and consignment stores, plus online retailers—carried this bag. Parents can pick from a dozen neutral or bold, graphic prints, and on some colors the interior is made of a light-colored fabric so that you can easily see what’s inside (not all diaper bags have gotten the memo on this).
So why buy an actual diaper bag? They’re thoughtfully designed with right-size pockets for essential baby gear, and made with tough material that’s easy to clean—inevitably, milk or juice will spill inside, and crushed crackers will find their way into crevices. Mine has been tossed around in my car, dumped on park benches and dragged across wet grass. I once accidentally left a banana peel in it for a few days. “The diaper bag is for the diapering years,” said Meg Collins, founder of Lucie’s List, a blog that recommends essential baby products for new parents. “It’s meant to keep you organized and sane. You have go-to pockets for your keys, diapers and wipes. You don’t have to think or fumble.” That just may help you escape the house a little more quickly. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/85/8c/5c/858c5c7f61f48c2e534979d026866e59--frugal-tips-girls-night-out.jpg

It has more flexibility than any of the other bags we considered—it can be worn as a backpack, across your body as a messenger bag, on your shoulder as a handbag, or carried as a tote. The heaviest of our picks at 2.3 pounds, the B.F.F. comes with multiple straps that are adjustable and quick and easy to unclip and remove (though we found that they can sometimes still get in the way). https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b1/63/4b/b1634ba7a7fab3716f2216befbe1d376--adult-party-games-laughter.jpg

No matter which style you choose, you should think about how you'll be able to put it onto one of our best strollers: down in the stroller's basket, or would you like to hang it on the stroller's handlebars? If the latter, you should go ahead and buy a diaper bag that includes stroller straps, like several of our top-rated bags. We suspect you'll use that feature a lot. Of course, always use caution when hanging the diaper bag on the handlebars of your stroller: when you take your baby out, the stroller will flip over backwards (unless the bag is super light)! So definitely make sure that the stroller you choose has a nice large basket to fit your diaper bag.
Then, you have two ways of carrying the bag. You have the padded shoulder straps, which are quite comfortable to wear when it's loaded down might I add. Then you also have the adjustable crossbody strap which clips on and off. I love this because I keep it in my bag for when I may need to give my shoulder a break and you don't have to leave it attached. Nothing worse than an attached long strap just hanging from the bag! So that is certainly not an issue. The clips the strap attaches to can also adjust as a clip ring - as in attaching keys using the Thirty-One Hang-It-Up Key Fob. This is a great way to prevent losing your keys!
When choosing the perfect baby diaper bag, there are several factors you should consider. Think about how you want to carry it. We suggest lugging around a 10-pound bag with you for an hour and see whether you find yourself wanting to throw it on your back. If so, then definitely consider one of the convertible diaper bags that can convert into a diaper bag backpack, like the Ju-Ju-Be (above). If your arms and shoulder feel fine, you might be OK with a more conventional bag. This might be a tote diaper bag that uses large handles and a shoulder strap, or a messenger style diaper bag worn across your chest. Better yet, check out the convertible diaper bags that can easily swap between a tote with shoulder straps and a diaper bag backpack. You'll be thanking us when you take it to Disney! Also, think about what happens when you need to do other things, like pull your baby in and out of the car seat. Will it flop annoyingly off your shoulder, stay on like a baby diaper backpack, or can you place it on the ground and not worry about it getting ruined by some water or tipping over and spilling its contents? The water issue is why we don't consider leather diaper bags in this article, given our less than stellar experience with liquids and leather bags (water, milk, lotions). But if you really want the stylish black leather diaper bag, check out the other faux leather diaper bags, like the Honest Company bag (above), a faux leather diaper backpack, or this faux leather Skip Hop Chelsea Diaper Bag. 
From the moment we opened the box, we fell in love with this top-rated Skip Hop diaper bag! It perfectly demonstrates the intersection between style and functionality. For moms with style, it uses a classy New York style colors and black stripe pattern, with light brown leather accents. We loved the look of this tote diaper bag style. But we were even more impressed by the functionality. This baby diaper bag gets things done. It is big, well-made, and has a ton of pockets (11 to be exact). For pockets, let's start on the outside: it has insulated side pockets that were big enough to fit even the widest baby bottles and keep stored at a nicely controlled temperature. Above those on the sides are some small pockets that were very easily accessible and perfect spot for keeping pacifiers. On the front, it has zippered pockets, which we thought were great for mom's personal stuff: car keys, a small wallet, or cell phone. The inside is vast and well-lined for durability and easy cleaning. It has a huge center space, which is perfect for diapers, wipes, changing pads (it comes with a great one!), and toys. A clever divider is put in between the outside handles and the main inside space, which provides even more storage space. These were great for more upright things that you want to slide up & out quickly like diaper cream, sunscreen, and lotion. Overall, we absolutely loved this bag, and it performed very well in our testing for durability, and we think it is very deserving of this spot on our diaper bag list! Cons? A bit pricey, usually around $75. Highly recommended! Interested? Check out the SkipHop Grand Central diaper bag here. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/04/8a/7a/048a7ad006fc8c1558c3bfbce00a92ca.jpg

We’re not the first to give the Skip Hop Duo high marks: Baby Bargains selected it as the best diaper bag of 2017, BabyList called it one of its best picks of 2017, and Meg Collins of Lucie’s List named it among her favorites. It is among the most popular diaper bags on Amazon, averaging just over 4.5 stars (out of five) across more than 1,000 reviews as of summer 2017. Although few would mistake it for some of the $200-and-up diaper bag options out there, its style is sophisticated for what it is. One Wirecutter staffer seeing it for the first time said it looked most similar to our upgrade pick, “with fewer bells and whistles”—a strong endorsement considering she didn’t yet know that this cost about a third of the price of the other bag. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/ae/00/0f/ae000ff562ff0603a2839d254b2f6111--free-gifts-september.jpg
I absolutely love Thirty-One Gifts! My consultant Jessica (from Sacramento, CA) is an amazing consultant and goes above and beyond to make her customers feel like family! I travel a lot and I am able to take my Away We Go Roller, ZipTop Utility Tote (with deluxe swap it pocket) and my Organizing Shoulder Bag for a 3-4 day trip and carry everything on the plane. I can't believe how organized I can be when traveling. I wish that the Away We Go roller was in the catalog to order as I receive so many compliments on it. My husband loves his Well Suited Garment Tote and it keeps his suit from wrinkling and fits perfectly on my Away We Go Roller for flying. Please keep up the amazing work and I look forward to doing more shopping and hosting a party with the upcoming fall catalog!!! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e3/a1/0d/e3a10def3f34c4d28d8d6818cbb3bd09--avon-representative-avon-online.jpg
Diaper bags are specifically designed to schlep all the things you need for your baby or toddler. Chances are, your little angel will surprise you with the biggest, smelliest, most disgusting blowout when you are miles away from home. Diaper bags generally come equipped with a changing pad, and have room to hold diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer and creams, a change of clothing or two, snacks, and a smartphone and a wallet, often in a series of pockets designed with specific items in mind. Some also have external, sometimes insulated, pockets for milk and/or water bottles, and designated straps to hook the bag onto your stroller. (Note: Though the JPMA and Consumer Reports advise against hanging a bag on a stroller because of the tip risk, most diaper bag makers—and parents—ignore this warning). https://i.pinimg.com/236x/3f/75/2d/3f752d3fca58dff697b6221f32749c55--partylite-fundraisers.jpg

Another thing that sets it apart is a high-end look and feel as well as some additional features that are nice but not essential—there’s a set of luggage-style feet that keep the bag up off a dirty surface (a feature no other pick has). There’s a unique velvet pocket that protects your sunglasses, a keyring so you can find your keys in a snap, and two open insulated pockets that are nice for bottles (but honestly they were not amazing insulators). Plus, with details such as gold metal hardware, we thought the B.F.F. looked the most fashion-forward out of our top picks. The construction feels really robust, although you do see some occasional complaints of things breaking that really shouldn’t.


We did not consider cult-favorite brand Timi & Leslie because almost all of its bags are made with leather and weigh 2 pounds or more. The OiOi and JJ Cole diaper bags are also on the heavier side, according to their online specs. We were intrigued by some of the newest diaper bags available, such as the Boken Diaper Bag, a lightweight, convertible diaper bag, and the Paperclip Diaper Bag, aimed at dads, with a built-in changing station for when a changing table isn’t available in the men’s restroom.

The easiest to clean of all the bags we tested, the Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F. was also the most versatile, with adjustable, removable straps that allow it to be carried as a cross-body messenger bag, backpack, shoulder bag, or tote. It was arguably the most stylish bag we picked, and definitely the most expensive. For the extra investment, the Ju-Ju-Be adds features not seen in our other picks, including some handy metal feet that elevate the bag off a dirty surface, and convenient touches like a felt-lined sunglasses pocket. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/fe/35/1e/fe351e084a63968ed9ac7bd9f1a4d896.jpg
On the inside of the bag is where "all the magic happens." You have a lot of interior side pouches so you can stash bottles, baby items, sunglasses, -- basically, keep your stuff organized! I used the side pouch to place my wallet so it doesn't get buried! There are 6 of these pouches total so lots of organization room. Then, as if that wasn't cool enough, they have a large zipper pouch. However, it's not just a zipper pouch, it's a THERMAL zipper pouch. This is perfect to carry that baby food, bottle, or even medication! It's lined so if anything spills, it can all easily be wiped down.
The Ah Goo Grab-and-Go Compact Diaper Bag is a sleek, compact bag with a flip-front messenger style and a roomy single-pocket interior for baby’s essential items. The front pouch is perfectly sized to hold a small tablet, and the velcro-enclosed side pocket fits your phone. The rest of the room is for baby, with a roomy inner pocket lined in antimicrobial material that’s a snap to wash. It can be worn as a wristlet or you can attach it to your stroller for an easy, breezy day on the town without being weighed down.
To figure out how big of a baby diaper bag you'll need, put some thought into how many things you'll want to be carrying around. It's not just for baby diapers and baby essentials (dont' forget nipple cream, lotions, baby sunscreen, and maybe even one of the smaller best breast pumps), but the baby bag will also be responsible for holding the contents of your purse unless you plan on carrying both the baby bag and your purse around all day (which we don't suggest!). So that means you'll want to make sure the baby diaper bag is big enough to hold all of the baby essentials along with things like your wallet, keys, lip balm, tissues, makeup, sunglasses, and anything else you carry around in your purse on a daily basis. Otherwise it's not really about finding the right diaper bags for moms, it becomes more about shoving in all the baby stuff and leaving mom's things behind! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3c/0d/fe/3c0dfe90297d668109d3e4340406946b.jpg
I have 4 kiddos and currently love the Harbor Side Tote (although the new satchel looks adorable too), from Vilah Bloom! I believe they are based out of Michigan and the company was very attentive when my latest shipment was late. It has a comfortable, detachable cross body option and lots of pockets inside and out. I too, have gone through a ton of diaper bags over the years as our needs have changed. I’m hoping I can use this one for a few more years, since it doesn’t really look like a diaper bag to me! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/3e/96/02/3e9602cc3a857f845f3076843545a1f8--insulated-bags-my-thirty-one.jpg
I spent entirely too much time looking for the perfect diaper bag. I narrowed it down to three and this one was 50% off so I got it! I’ve had it for 3 months with baby and I love it! Has a good amount of room that I can fit all my babe’s items (diapers, wipes, bottles, extra clothes, blanket, changing pad, a toy) along with my wallet, keys & phone. My husband likes that it’s black and doesn’t look like a diaper bag. The ONLY bad thing is I tend to pack heavy when we go on a day trip and when I ... read more Click to read full text of review titled "Perfect size for on the go". https://i.pinimg.com/236x/5e/81/0c/5e810c09cabf596eb5c1b98e9e001989--face-makeup-hair-and-makeup.jpg
When the time came to ditch the diaper bag, I jumped for joy. I never liked toting around a huge bag, but was still surprised that even though I now have a five-year-old, we still cart around a lot of stuff! Now that we are involved in school and sports, it turns out I still need a decent bag that’s both functional and stylish. Just as we signed up for the upcoming summer swim team (that requires tons of swim accessories!), one of my favorite companies released a baby line- Baby by Thirty One! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/16/25/c9/1625c967018eccde1ae6668eb748959f--thirty-one-fall-thirty-one-gifts.jpg

I just absolutely love this company and the products so much variety of choices they carry. The great opportunity that they give women to going to business for themselves. I am not a consultant or representative, but I met a wonderful couple of ladies at a friends house and purchased two items. The quality is immeasurable and I love that they even monogram. I've been anxious to get my items, but it seems to take a few weeks. I will say they don't charge your credit card until the items have been shipped. And I love my free gift, I received when I placed an order over $30. I found the price is very reasonable and will be using my tote and cute little backpack/purse for years to come! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/3d/57/c1/3d57c18da97b0116d5e7344e684d5f26.jpg
I spent entirely too much time looking for the perfect diaper bag. I narrowed it down to three and this one was 50% off so I got it! I’ve had it for 3 months with baby and I love it! Has a good amount of room that I can fit all my babe’s items (diapers, wipes, bottles, extra clothes, blanket, changing pad, a toy) along with my wallet, keys & phone. My husband likes that it’s black and doesn’t look like a diaper bag. The ONLY bad thing is I tend to pack heavy when we go on a day trip and when I ... read more Click to read full text of review titled "Perfect size for on the go". https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c6/67/3d/c6673d3dbb4f051e223753cbb480b934.jpg
From the moment we opened the box, we fell in love with this top-rated Skip Hop diaper bag! It perfectly demonstrates the intersection between style and functionality. For moms with style, it uses a classy New York style colors and black stripe pattern, with light brown leather accents. We loved the look of this tote diaper bag style. But we were even more impressed by the functionality. This baby diaper bag gets things done. It is big, well-made, and has a ton of pockets (11 to be exact). For pockets, let's start on the outside: it has insulated side pockets that were big enough to fit even the widest baby bottles and keep stored at a nicely controlled temperature. Above those on the sides are some small pockets that were very easily accessible and perfect spot for keeping pacifiers. On the front, it has zippered pockets, which we thought were great for mom's personal stuff: car keys, a small wallet, or cell phone. The inside is vast and well-lined for durability and easy cleaning. It has a huge center space, which is perfect for diapers, wipes, changing pads (it comes with a great one!), and toys. A clever divider is put in between the outside handles and the main inside space, which provides even more storage space. These were great for more upright things that you want to slide up & out quickly like diaper cream, sunscreen, and lotion. Overall, we absolutely loved this bag, and it performed very well in our testing for durability, and we think it is very deserving of this spot on our diaper bag list! Cons? A bit pricey, usually around $75. Highly recommended! Interested?

The Cool Clip Thermal Pouch makes a great addition to any tote, bag or backpack when you need a little extra space or just need to keep items separated and easy to access. Great for snacks, sunscreen, medicine, make-up, valuables, cell phones, baby food, bug spray, first-aid supplies and many other items. Features a washable and wipeable thermal lining, exterior clip, zipper closure and front pocket. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/21/9a/b3/219ab30baa12fd471fc0abf63fc25e78.jpg

With four elastic pockets inside, two side-zip pockets, and two interior elastic pen pockets, the Super Swap-It Pocket is a fabulous way to organize and carry small items. From tablet and smart phone accessories to receipts, gift cards, planners and more, this essential organizing insert can travel on its own or fit neatly inside a larger tote or bag to keep contents squared away. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/ff/74/bb/ff74bb9547af63d09392ea7b4e2781b7--kitchen-cleaners-bathroom-cleaners.jpg
My favorite diaper bag was my Petunia Picklebottom boxy backpack purchased for a steal off of Craigslist. It wiped up easily, and washed up in nearly perfect condition after our years of use and I regifted it to a friend who ended up in the hospital very early in her pregnancy and didn’t have a chance to go out shopping for one. She loved it too. It’s probably still out there toting around sippy cups. The multiple strap options were amazing. It was a backpack/crossbody/shoulder bag depending on your needs in the moment and the shoulder strap had such a wide range of lengths it hung over any stroller and even standard size shopping cart handles. I wouldn’t pay for a new one, but a nice used laminated “boxy backpack” is well worth the money in my opinion. I believe they now have a larger size backpack option too.

This is our highest-ranking convertible diaper bag, and we love the style and functionality of this versatile and relatively unisex diaper bag system. The bag converts from a regular over-the-shoulder diaper bag, to a messenger bag, and to a super comfortable backpack with soft shoulder pads. So just when your arm or shoulder is getting sore, you can untuck the backpack straps from the side pocket, and off you go, in style and comfort. But it's not just versatile. This diaper bag is also super functional. It has outside and inside pockets, 3M baby bottle insulator pockets, and clever see-through plastic pockets inside so you can see what you're looking for before you go searching. It's relatively small, but we found it big enough for one baby, and the fact that you can open the main compartment nice and wide really helps you fit all your things in (and prevents you from randomly searching for things). But it does have a few drawbacks, given its high price (like $170). For this price, we would expect a bit higher quality on the fabrics and zippers. They're good, but not quite on par with the heavier duty zippers of a SOHO bag, or the easy-clean fabrics of a SkipHop bag. So while it's on our list of best diaper bags, and we think it's worthy of inclusion, these drawbacks will keep it a bit lower in our reviews and ratings. Interested? You can check out this Ju-Ju-Be BFF diaper bag here. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/9f/6c/80/9f6c80b381b53f47c3adebd560607868--thirty-one-fall-thirty-one-gifts.jpg
Also, pick a bag that will last you both in durability and style. If the bag only looks good with certain outfits, you'll find yourself frustrated or wanting to buy multiple bags. A black or red bag, or one with relatively neutral colors/patterns can work with nearly any outfit. Of course, some of the really stylish baby diaper bags can also get really expensive; so maybe dig into some of those gift cards you might have hanging around from your baby registry, or put your favorite on a new baby registry (see our best baby registries here) if you haven't had your baby yet! Finally, it's worth considering a diaper bag that is water resistant, to protect the bag's contents from damage during rain or accidentally being set on a wet surface. The Halova Diaper Bag Multifunction Waterproof Travel Backpack is a great example. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/25/7c/00/257c009e18a66f01eb8fae3bb79cac9f--thirty-one-addiction.jpg?b

In case you’re wondering how large this bag feels, it is a near perfect size. It’s not so small that nothing fits, but it’s also not a large cavernous tote that gets weighed down and is heavy to carry. When I sling it on my shoulder, it hits my waist. The straps are a perfect length so the bag is not shoved up under your arm pit, but not so long the bag bangs on your hip when walking. Real life photo for you! https://i.pinimg.com/345x/45/81/46/4581469c33f5788d3d6f39f78f556e4e.jpg

From casual cinch sacks to smartly-designed wallets and bags, 31 Gifts (or T.O.G. as their consultants like to refer to it) has you covered wherever your day may take you. Savings-savvy office workers love the insulated totes, lunch sacks and zipper pouches that keep cold food and drinks fresh for break time, enabling them to save money by prepping their own lunches at home. Moms swear by the company’s oversized totes, stacked with plentiful pockets for diaper change necessities, coupons, favorite toys and more.

With such a wide variety of bags, it’s very easy for a consultant to match party attendees to a product that works well for their lifestyle.

We did not consider cult-favorite brand Timi & Leslie because almost all of its bags are made with leather and weigh 2 pounds or more. The OiOi and JJ Cole diaper bags are also on the heavier side, according to their online specs. We were intrigued by some of the newest diaper bags available, such as the Boken Diaper Bag, a lightweight, convertible diaper bag, and the Paperclip Diaper Bag, aimed at dads, with a built-in changing station for when a changing table isn’t available in the men’s restroom. (Like the Petunia Pickle Bottom boxy backpack, the changing pad folds out from the front of the bag; the Paperclip also has a wall on both sides.). Unfortunately, enough customers complained about broken zippers with the Boken Diaper Bag that we decided to hold off on field-testing it, and at the time of our review, the Paperclip Diaper Bag cost over $200.
I have several 31 bags. One of my faves is the organizing utility tote- I use it as my teacher work bag. I love this style for a diaper bag too. The new spring catalog is out and I want the party punch print. Because it does not close I plan on getting the zipper pouch for things lime diapers , ointments etc... and mini pouch for smaller items . Of course, they will all be personalized !
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!

No matter which style you choose, you should think about how you'll be able to put it onto one of our best strollers: down in the stroller's basket, or would you like to hang it on the stroller's handlebars? If the latter, you should go ahead and buy a diaper bag that includes stroller straps, like several of our top-rated bags. We suspect you'll use that feature a lot. Of course, always use caution when hanging the diaper bag on the handlebars of your stroller: when you take your baby out, the stroller will flip over backwards (unless the bag is super light)! So definitely make sure that the stroller you choose has a nice large basket to fit your diaper bag. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/dc/1c/e8/dc1ce83eff5645ec01292822ca5c10c6.jpg
The easiest to clean of all the bags we tested, the Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F. was also the most versatile, with adjustable, removable straps that allow it to be carried as a cross-body messenger bag, backpack, shoulder bag, or tote. It was arguably the most stylish bag we picked, and definitely the most expensive. For the extra investment, the Ju-Ju-Be adds features not seen in our other picks, including some handy metal feet that elevate the bag off a dirty surface, and convenient touches like a felt-lined sunglasses pocket. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/96/34/37/963437d57147bb65001f25ed474d259e--cat-eyes-eye-liner.jpg
The plan is a part of Cuomo's 2019 women's justice agenda, legislation that addresses the gender wage gap, as well as economic and social justice for all New York women. According to a 2017 report from the Institute for Women's Policy Research, 11% of undergraduates, or 2.1 million students, were single mothers as of 2012, which has doubled since 2000. Additionally, that same study found that 4 in 10 women at two-year colleges say that they are likely or very likely to drop out of school due to their dependent care obligations. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/2c/5d/c8/2c5dc897bbbcf0912cb09e3247e7d0e2--amazing-nature-what-to-use.jpg
I was also sent the adorable icon coin purses to review, and they are so fun!  All of my three kids got one to put on their backpacks for lunch money or chapstick.  They love that they have a special place for their important items and it really helps them to keep track of their lunch money better.  I like that you can mix and match the coin purses with the whimsical characters and bright colors.  They look great on a black bag as a pop of color or on a child’s backpack.  They are also the perfect size for a pacifier holder on your diaper bag!   https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3a/a9/7b/3aa97bd1e6bbbabf39850d8249e7a985.png
