A lot of the gear you buy when you have children is, not surprisingly, for the children. But the diaper bag, well the diaper bag is for you, dear reader. Sure it may be filled with a half dozen diapers, a crumbled granola bar and a few broken crayons, but with that diaper bag you have the power to keep life organized, take your brood out and about, and most importantly, show off some of your style – even if you are rocking it with yoga pants. Find your perfect diaper bag with these Momtrends Must-Have award winners.
BEST OVERALL DIAPER BAG: Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack
It’s no surprise why moms love the Boxy Backpack. This Petunia classic offers new moms everything you want in a diaper bag. The versatile bag offers four different hold options – as a backpack, over your shoulder, across your body or attached to your stroller with stroller clips (sold separately) – allowing it to adapt to changes in scenery or your child’s stage. The front panel of the bag zips down to reveal a changing station complete with a detachable changing pad, pockets for diaper and wipes, and even a pacifier pocket. The practical design of the bag ensures it won’t tip over while you’re changing baby and provides easy access to everything you need. Inside the bag you’ll find a roomy compartment with three pockets, two bottle pockets and a no-digging key clip. On top of all the Boxy’s features are Petunia’s fabrics. Petunia Pickle Bottom releases new fabrics for their collection twice a year – just like a fashion designer – ensuring a wide array of colors and patterns to drool over. We love the Glazed collection for its combination of durability and style, but the Boxy Backpack is also available in soft chenille, embossed solids, or the new signature jacquard collection. Whichever you choose, you’ll find that the Boxy Backpack is the perfect blend of practical and pretty. BUY: Amazon or Nordstrom
