Though the faith-based theme and mottos are subtle, many consultants enjoy working with a home party sales company that shares their values. Thirty One Gifts supports women in their efforts to bring prosperity to their households. Through the Thirty One Gives charity branch of the organization, the company also gives back to their local Ohio community through donations, building houses for the needy, product donations and more. This commitment to improving the quality of life for those less fortunate falls in line with the sentiments expressed in proverb Thirty One, bolstering the strength and capability of a woman-owned company filled with motivated female consultants and employees. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b2/ae/eb/b2aeeb04499cb803adc2509f87acf3f4--summer-prints--bags.jpg
Additionally, many view campus childcare as a safe haven for college students. "During my 18 years working in campus childcare, I have witnessed how the student-parents can complete their courses and stay focused by having childcare on campus," says Sori Palacio, a Head Teacher at BMCC Early Childhood Center. "Parents usually express how thankful they are for having their children traveling with them to school as well as having their children nearby while they complete their degree. They concentrate in academic work without worrying about their child's wellbeing. This service helps the entire public by preparing more people to serve the community." https://i.pinimg.com/236x/69/55/9d/69559ddd19f9c2d7fd91783c8c45a0bb---party-party-set.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 Jeep Diaper Backpack was roomy, and had plenty of pockets for organization, including a zippered, insulated pocket for a bottle on the side of the bag. But it did not have an open pocket for a bottle, which meant that anytime we needed a drink, we had to remove the backpack from our shoulders and unzip one of the pockets. We ran into the same problem with the Bag Nation Diaper Backpack. Almost identical in design to the Jeep Diaper Bag, the Bag Nation Diaper Backpack also did not have any open pockets, though it did have an insulated pocket for a bottle on the side. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/02/f7/2f/02f72f05dd0dc996c89892c253c1ce9c--thirty-one-products-thirty-one-gifts.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.
This is an awesome backpack-style diaper bag that is stylish, durable, convenient, comfortable, and feature-rich. It's a medium-sized diaper bag that you can carry has a hand-tote or as a diaper bag backpack. It has a modern gender-neutral style, helped by the heather gray color, the leather accents, the asymmetrical front pocket, and its vintage style button. It's the sort of bag that both mom and dad will be willing to wear, making it one of the only unisex diaper bags on our list. And it has some great features. First, we loved the side baby bottle exterior pockets, the zippered wipe dispenser on the side, and the hidden pocket on the back (up against your back) that can hold valuables without the risk of pick-pocketing. That's great if you live in the city, or travel to urban areas where that's an issue (like on the subway!). We also liked the substantial padding against the back, to keep things comfortable for longer excursions. It also includes stroller straps on the sides, though we warn you to be careful about attaching diaper bags to strollers due to the tipping hazard. In that regard, it's definitely a good size for throwing into the stroller's bottom basket, but still big enough to hold most of your stuff. Speaking of size, the main compartment is really quite large and is divided well into a mesh pocket area, a zippered pocket, and elastic pockets for holding smaller items. We were able to fit everything necessary into the bag without any issues. It's great to have a nicely divided main compartment, to prevent things from sinking down to the bottom and remaining elusive in your desperate search for that last clean pacifier! We also want to point out that this company is very responsive to customer concerns. This is their third version of this great diaper bag, with improved stitching and reinforcements based on customer feedback (and if you have the older version with an issue, you can email them and they'll send you the newer one for free!). And the price is right too, coming in around $40. So, if you're looking for the comfort and convenience of a backpack, this is a great option! Note that we also checked out the HapTim Multifunction Large Baby Diaper Bag Backpack, which is very similar and very highly recommended. Interested?
