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.
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).
I loved the SkipHop when we had two kids, but it didn’t hold up well and I decided a back pack was a must. As my younger boys grew, I’d take one of their Pottery Barn backpacks to amusement parks, MLB games, the zoo, etc. They worked great for these trips but I wasn’t a fan of the robots or Spider-Man. For baby number 3, I got a Vera Bradley backpack that I love. The laptop compartment is perfect for a changing pad, diapers, and wipes. The rest of the bag has a good amount of pockets. Also because it’s not technically a diaper bag, I will continue using it as needed after we are out of the baby stage.
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/f0/61/15/f06115ad9214bf50a713a9eb33f33823--pure-romance-very-interesting.jpg
This bag is easier to clean than any other bag we tested. A major thing that sets the B.F.F. apart is that this is the only one with the manufacturer’s approval to send it through the washing machine.2 In our 24-hour-old-milk-and-crushed-Cheerios cleaning test, we gave the bag a quick, perfunctory wipedown, then (per the company’s instructions) removed the straps, turned the bag inside out, placed it in a pillowcase, and tossed it in the machine with the rest of our laundry. When we took it out of the wash, all the milk and crusted cereal crumbs were gone, and it was the only one that truly looked spotless after our cleaning tests.
Aside from features and functionality, preferences and personal style will definitely attract some people to the B.F.F. The look of this bag is simply more suited to some people than the Skip Hop. And having tested both side by side, we consider each a good value. But let’s be honest, if you are ready to pay nearly $200 for a diaper bag, you’re probably not considering this against the Skip Hop. If it were our money, we’d rather buy this than one of the other similarly priced bags out there. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b0/10/63/b010636f74d0d567f4c3c58cdd763a79--thirty-one-organizations.jpg

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.
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.
