I just had a party with Monica Nickerson in West Allis, WI. She was the nicest, quickest to respond ...and most helpful women ever! She brought so many fun things to the show and was interested in what we needed. The show was perfect getting us ready for the holidays. I received the order and everything was beautiful! I’ll definitely be hosting again with Monica, she’s delightful and the products are amazing!

Practical, modern, spacious, lightweight and comfortable, Ergobaby diaper bags combine the latest styles with purpose. With baby and parent-in-mind features like a water repellent changing pad, stroller loops, insulated bottle pockets and several other interior and exterior pockets and compartments to keep your essentials separate from your baby’s, you’ve got room to stash and stay organized on the go. You can also choose between backpack and messenger style options, or use the top handles, which is a necessity since you’ll end up carrying your diaper bag in various ways depending on the day. We personally like the backpack style because it can be used in conjunction with a front carry baby carrier.
Of course, your “diaper bag” doesn’t have to be a bag designed specifically for that purpose—something else may better match your personal style and have a use after your kids are out of diapers. Parents we know have used bags ranging from this lightweight Patagonia travel tote (a pick in our tote bags guide), to a simple cloth grocery bag, to a waxed canvas farmer’s market bag, to a Baggu drawstring backpack or shoulder bag (our top tote bag pick), to a many-pocketed canvas shoulder bag sold on Etsy, to an expensive Tom Bihn backpack that has a pocket layout that works well for baby supplies (wipes in the bottom, changing pad in the main compartment, bottles in the side pockets). “Because of the removable-laptop-sleeve design, I could use the same backpack with and without the kids,” the Tom Bihn-loving dad told us.

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/08/13/70/081370a170782a9af1d10743f2f7a01b.jpg
This top-rated bag looks almost like a large purse, and might even be mistaken as something other than a diaper bag. But don't hold your breath, that's a tall feat. This bag has a stylish thick quilted exterior with tan leather, gold hardware, and red accents, which makes it look much more expensive than it actually is. Coming in at around $55, this bag is right in the sweet spot where you will get reasonable quality and high functionality, without breaking the bank. While it doesn't convert into a backpack like some of the below models, it does have some great versatility: you can carry it as a hand-tote, use the shoulder strap, or use the included stroller straps to attach it right onto your stroller. Of course, we always suggest using caution with stroller straps, as a heavy diaper bag can cause a stroller to tip over backwards. The bag itself is big, and everything about it feels high quality and thick. The fabric is actually water resistant, and we tested it out by placing it into a shallow puddle and making sure the clothes we put inside were kept dry. They were, and we were happy to see that the diaper bag lived up to its claims. This bag has 10 different pockets, one mom pocket outside and one on the inside (for keys, phone, wallet, cash), two insulated baby bottle pouches on the sides, 2 front pockets and 1 rear pocket (all non-zippered), and a huge main compartment that is a bit more like a purse than a diaper bag in terms of how it's divided. The diaper changing pad is well-sized and can be separately washed in the machine. It's a big bag, but not too big so that it looks giant on a medium-sized mom, or sticks out too far when hanging on the stroller. Frankly, we think it's the perfect size. We found the zippers, seams, and buttons to be high quality, and we think this bag will last you for several years. Our most popular diaper bag on Pinterest, moms love the look of this bag! Only a minor gripe: we wish the large exterior pocket was zippered or buttoned, so inquiring minds couldn't look inside (and curious baby hands couldn't reach in!). Interested?

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/236x/f5/51/1a/f5511abb43ffc1488cc9bb8f27e62ecb--thirty-one-fall-thirty-one-gifts.jpg
We ultimately used the diaper bags in nearly 50 real-world settings in two states, including on airplanes, at the beach, at the mall, at Costco, at an amusement park (where birds landed on the diaper bags and pecked at them), and at the zoo, playgrounds, restaurants, a kids soccer game, museums, the doctor’s office, and the pool. Almost all the diaper bags traveled with us during a family vacation to Hawaii, where it was humid, sandy, occasionally rainy, and about 85 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit on most days. We hung the bags on our stroller—which indeed tipped over several times, though luckily not with the baby strapped inside it!—during long walks, and slung it over our shoulders or backs the rest of the time. In the majority of our outings, we changed the baby’s diaper to see how manageable it would be to set up the changing pad and reach the diapers and wipes. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/b5/94/99/b594992a96e6a59d7c4ca4437e2b7ac4.jpg

Over time, though, something started to shift. I realized I felt trapped by my daughter's feeding schedule. I felt isolated in the fact that she needed me―only me―and that I couldn't ask for help with this monumental task even if I truly needed it. While I was still so grateful that I was able to breastfeed without much difficulty, a growing part of me began fantasizing about the freedom and shared burden that would come if we bottle fed, even just on occasion. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/f5/7a/d8/f57ad8a24655fadfc35c66f2a072b680---ideas--bags-ideas.jpg
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
Does anyone else plan on using or have used a thirty one bag as their diaper bag? If so which one and how has it worked out for you? I absolutely love the idea of being able to personalize my diaper bag with the name and colors! But I'm not sure exactly what size I'll need to buy or which would be a better bag. I have a few ideas in mind though, i'm deciding between the utility tote, cindy tote or the retro metro bag. they're all too adorable and so many ways to personalize which is the best part about them! Such a tough decision, so many options Also what is the most important thing you're looking for in a diaper bag? https://i.pinimg.com/originals/bd/56/03/bd56033f5fbb2b48bf3c58a6fac8c9c0.jpg
