beautiful diaper bags!

When I was pregnant with Lily I was so excited to pick out a diaper bag! I got this classic one by Skip Hop because it was one of the only adult-looking bags on the market at the time. Most others were adorable for a baby, but not something I'd want to carry around with me in lieu of a purse. Why did we ever think that a bag for an adult should look like it's for a baby? Now a days though? Cute diaper bags are everywhere! Most are pretty pricey but I think you can justify the cost if you consider that these options would easily eliminate your need for a purse/handbag/carry-on luggage. I love that baby companies got wise to the fact that diaper bags are for moms, not babies.

One thing I've learned over the years is that a diaper bag (or any large bag, really) is hard to keep in your shoulders when you've bending over constantly to help kids with their shoes, changing diapers, or wearing a baby carrier. That's why there are a few backpacks on this list, too! I think backpacks really are the best thing for a diaper bag (I actually have #6)! Here are my top diaper bags slash bags-I'd-use-as-a-diaper-bag:

Starting at the top left -
  1. Kånken Original Backpack by Fjällräven
  2. Duo Signature by Skip Hop
  3. Duet 2-in-1 by Skip Hop
  4. Metro Messenger by Timi & Lesie
  5. Charlie by Timi & Lesie
  6. Double Zip Backpack by Indigo
  7. Versa by Skip Hop
  8. Brave Backpack by Matt & Nat 
  9. Studio Day-to-Night by Skip Hop
I shopped around briefly to find the links to these bags at the lowest price. Indigo came out on top this time! Amazon was $10-20 more and Well was $5-10 more in this case. I love shopping online because you can easily price check, and the major places where I buy things online (Amazon, Well, Indigo) each have their own niche for the best prices - apparently Indigo is it for bags! Enjoy, mamas!

  1. Backpack diaper bags might be one of the most versatile bags you’ll ever have. It is an item that is not pigeonholed for a single purpose, and because it has a lot of compartments, you’ll be able to stuff like a lot of things. They also look nice and some got funky designs too.

  2. Those are really gorgeous diaper bags - love them! We're having a baby shower next week and I'd love to give one of this to my friend who's due in 3 weeks! That being said, I think I'm also getting her a daypack since she and her hubby do camp a lot and with a baby in the offing, they might not have enough funds for other things like camping gears. Since I'm a great friend, might as well throw in a great bag, right? I'm looking at more affordable options for bags, and this site looks promising: http://myoutdoorslife.com/gear/traveling/best-daypack.html
