What Is The Best Diaper Bag?

Choosing the best diaper bag depends entirely on who is asking! There are loads of great pieces on the market, each offering something different to a different type of parent. Some offer space or incredible-organization. Other bags come as a handbag or cute tote bag that Dad definitely won’t want. Some bags are incredibly impractical to use for your baby but as Heidi Klum owns one, there are people queuing around the block ready to pay for one. When you choose a bag for your baby, you need to figure out what matters most to you.

The best diaper bag for easy cleaning
Although bags like Petunia Pickle Bottoms might look great; their plush, drapery-like materials do not lend themselves well to cleaning. In fact, if you aren’t careful with a Petunia Pickle Bottom, it can end up looking pretty horrible in a surprisingly short time. If you are the kind of Mom who is going to spill orange juice all over it, set it down in dirty spots without thinking or accidentally leave the lid of the baby cream loose, your expensive bag is going to be looking pretty crap in no time at all. The best diaper bag for you is one made from a study material that will age well. Ju Ju Be bags are still pretty fashionable but they use stain-resistant, germ-resistant materials that allow you to throw your bag straight into the washing machine. Vera Bradley bags and Oi Oi diaper bags are also a great choice if you want an easy-cleaned bag. Both brands’ bags are machine-washable and although Oi Oi bags are as expensive as Petunia Pickle Bottoms, they tend to age much better.

The best diaper bag for Dad
Dad probably has an idea of what kind of bag he wants already. If you are thinking about buying one for him, why not ask him first and see what he has in mind? Dad probably isn’t going to be as careful with his bag as you might be so a high-fashion bag made in plush materials with beautiful embroidery isn’t going to be a good choice. Go for either a backpack or a messenger-style bag. The messenger bag has become popular with men in the past few years thanks to Jack Bauer of 24 fame. The backpack is probably a better choice if you are remotely unsure though. It’s easier to organise, both of Dads hands will be kept free and the weight of baby’s diapers, creams and powders will be equally distributed across the back.

The best diaper bag for style
If you just want a diaper bag for style then look no further than Petunia Pickle Bottom or Ju Ju Be. These bags are really hot with celebrities and have been for some time. The bags might be a little on the pricey side, weighing in at around $150, but they are truly stylish and offer users plenty of space. Bags from Ju Ju Be are generally a little bit sturdier than Petunia Pickle Bottom bags which are made from nicer materials. That said both bags are stylish enough to replace your existing purse. Just throw your keys, money and phone into your diaper bag and nobody will know you’re secretly carrying 5 diapers, a bottle and a change of clothes for baby! Take a look at unwanted gifts or gently-used pre-owned bags on eBay to get your hands on a discounted bag or alternatively, take a look at Overstock.com and Babysteals.com

The best diaper bag for organization.
If you need a well-organized diaper bag, look for something with plenty of zipped-pockets. If you choose a bigger bag, make sure the space is actually useful and is divided into compartments and pockets that allow you to easily sort through what you are carrying and find the pacifier that you are looking for. If your bag has plenty of compartments, it’s much easier to swap it for your existing purse as it keeps your stuff separate from your baby’s. Some brands offer products that detach from your bag like built-in changing mats or smaller storage bags. Petunia Pickle Bottom backpacks have roll-out changing mats and Graco baby bags, featuring an array of pockets and a very spacious interior, offer the aforementioned detachable smaller bag which is great for food or bottles.
