Diaper Bag Buying Guide

A well-designed diaper bag is an essential survival tool for the tired and overworked mother. So what is the main thing to look for in a diaper bag?

Storage is King

We cannot overstate this enough. When it comes to storage space and pockets, do not economize. You will find bags with 12, 14 and even sixteen pockets. Yes, sixteen. Why? Think diapers, wipes, changing pad, bottles and binkies, toys, snacks, rash cream, spare bags for dirty diapers, change of clothes, and you get a general idea. And that is just for the babies! You also need extra space for your stuff, keys, glasses, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, snacks, the works. So the more pockets and storage space, the merrier.

Style Vs. Functional Design

Looks alone should never be the deciding factor when buying a diaper bag. That compact tote bag may look very chic, but it will drive you crazy when you are stranded without enough spare diapers for your twins. That being said, as long as there is adequate storage, and enough space for organization and order, you might prefer one style over the other.

  • Backpacks offer the best in terms of function, with extra space and leaving your hands-free. But you should never hand them from strollers.
  • Messenger bags offer wonderful comfort with padded straps, and leave one hand free to hold the baby. They also look good and work well with strollers.
  • Totes offer the best value in terms of style and may be the preferred option for ladies who need something that can do the job of a purse as well.

Other Essential Features

  • Use easy to clean bags, preferably with wipe clean linings. Organic cotton is probably the best fabric option.
  • Avoid any PVC materials that are not rated "phthalate-free."
  • Also, avoid Velcro straps as they tend to be noisy and can wake your baby. Zippers and magnetic closures are great.
  • Ensure that at least a couple of compartments are water-proof so that you can store used diapers safely.
