A couple things I looked for was insulated bottle holders, that way bottles would be ready when I needed them. I also looked for diaper bags with a zipper pocket for keeping important items, having a neoprene lining for accidental spills was a plus, and it needed to be stylish and practical. My search had begun!
Rather than finding one big bag to throw all of my baby items in, similar to Mary Poppins pulling out an endless supply of diapers, snacks, toys, creams, and other things my child would need or want to stay content, I wanted something that allowed me to be organized. When I came across the Ju-Ju-Be Be Prepared diaper bag, I knew it was the one for me. But, on my journey I came across many stylish options that offer style and practical use:
Skip Hop Chelsea Diaper Satchel – $90
This option is not only stylish, but a decent price tag for the options available. It was one of my top choices, it is practical, offers organization, and many pockets. Would fit most dark wardrobes as it comes in a sleek black.
Marc Jacobs ‘Biker’ Nylon Diaper Bag – $295
This one is a bit more expensive, but for those who put style first it is a great option. It has great reviews with a classic bag style which can convert as your child becomes older and be used for toddler stuff, or as an everyday bag.
TWELVElittle Companion Backpack – $200
This one is a bit cheaper, but still offers style in a backpack style bag. With many zipper pockets to keep your valuables, inside and out, it is also padded for comfort and water resistant.
Kate Spade Striped Stevie Bag – $398
One of the higher priced bags in the list, this simple black and white striped bag has a red lining inside and works great for carrying your baby items. It also has a changing pad inside that matches, so you’re always ready and in style.
Ickadybag Diaper Bag – $47
Of course, a more affordable, yet stylish option had to be tossed into the list. This can be considered more of an all-purpose bag, but it still provides a water resistant way to carry your baby’s needed items in an organized method. It has three areas, straps padded with fleece, bottle pockets that are easy to access, and a stroller strap.
