modern diaper bag for the modern mama

modern diaper bag for the modern mama

now that we are getting closer to our due date, and have purchased all of the "big items" i have gone ahead and made a list of what we still need before baby "h" arrives. one of those would be a diaper bag. i, of course, do not want to sacrifice on fashion for function, so i've been on the hunt to find something that meets both of my criterian.

in my search for the perfect diaper bag it was nice to see that there are designers out there thinking of us mama's; we want our bag to go with our style and we need it to function well enough to tote around all of baby's needs. 

here is what i rounded for my top 6 on the market!

1 \ fawn design diaper bag | black - i absolutely adore this bag. can you believe this stylish diaper bag has a total of 9 pockets? 4 outside, 5 inside. the straps on the bag can be doubled as either a messenger bag or a backpack. i love the idea of the backpack; get it off my hip so i can pay full attention to our little man and hold him comfortably. there are also two hooks on either side to hang off your stroller when you're cruising around. another nice feature of this bag is you can remove the inside for easy cleaning and the faux leather wipes like a dream. 

2 \ lassig green label diaper bag | sky - this bag is a modern spin on a traditional style of diaper bag; and if important to you and your family, this ecological bag is made from recycled PET bottles. how awesome! the two handles fold down, and upright, conceal four outside pockets! what a great design. this bag also comes with a bottle holder and a changing pad for when you're on the go and baby needs a diaper change.  i love the colour of this bag and could see myself wanting to wear this in the spring and summer months. 

3 \ duo special edition luxe diaper bag | french stripe - 11 pockets this bag has! i could store all our little mans things. i love this classic look that you can either use as a messenger bag or hold by the handles. the durable poly-canvas fabric wears and cleans well. this also would be a bag i would choose to carry in the spring and summer months, but it also comes in other colours to suit every season! 

4 \ honest city backpack diaper bag | grey - how amazing is this bag? spacious, fashion forward and functional. also, a bag that dad can equally adore. this bag is made from 100% vegan leather and has an easily wipeable lining for spills. more than the 5 pockets in this bag, there is also a large insulated pack for snacks on the go. included is a changing pad and a zippered pocket for wipes. what didn't honest think of when designing this diaper bag? 

5 \ fjällräven kanken backpack | light grey - so this bag is not designed as a diaper bag but would suit a quick outing just fine, and be good for both mom and dad! i love this casual look for the more casual days, and great for when baby is a little older and needs less things packed up. and, it's always a bonus to have a backpack to free up both hands. 

6 \ little unicorn rotunda diaper bag | brown -  this bag is as functional as it is elegant. there isn't a part of it that looks like a diaper bag! with 8 pockets, a strap for a messenger bag, and stroller hooks, function definitely meets style. i love the more sophisticated look, it would be nice to carry this bag for a more formal evening. 

so, with all of this information and research on the best diaper bag, i still haven't decided which one we will go with, but it is definitely a start. i'll let you all know which one i decide on. in the interim, which one is your favourite? do you own one that you want to rave about? let me know!

thanks so much for reading, xo.
