Babies inevitably come with a ton of stuff.
Between diapers, wipes, bottles, milk, blankets, backup outfits, hand sanitizer, burp cloths, favorite toys and pacifiers (to name a few), it’s essential to have a bag that’s big enough to hold everything and won’t get ruined at the first sign of a spill.
While your beloved leather handbag isn’t the best choice, you don’t have to completely forget your fashion sense when selecting a diaper bag. Truth be told: You'll be lugging it around nearly everywhere, so you might as well like the way it looks.
Here are a slew of practical options for every style, function and personality.
It makes sense that backpacks and gym bags can easily double as diaper bags — after all, they’re designed to be thrown over you shoulder and handle sweaty clothes, water bottles, sneakers and more. Look for one with plenty of pockets and a color or pattern that works with your stroller.

Think of these as your anti-diaper bag. We love the idea of using a sleek messenger, unassuming hobo, cheeky beach bag or even clutch as a place for baby’s belongings. They also make great gifts!
