Comfortable to carry. We looked for padded straps, good balance, and a low weight. We took a skeptical eye toward bags that, when empty, weigh more than 2 pounds (we did make a few exceptions). Comfort is subjective, and we wanted to find options for people who find backpacks or messenger bags more comfortable than shoulder bags. Bonus points for bags that could be carried in multiple ways. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/da/5f/f7/da5ff7c950c8294ff812bf8282dea98b.jpg
One is a laptop bag that I liked and decided to turn into a diaper bag. It's about the same width and height, but it's only about 4" deep. It could use a few more pockets since it only has the one... the laptop compartment - I use it for diapers, wipes and changing pad. Everything else is in a jumbled heap in the main compartment. Eh, it works. Slightly annoying, but it works. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/4d/cc/ec/4dccec9c95603534143b65c86425d923--group-lashes.jpg
After everything she does for you and your family, your mom deserves a great gift for her upcoming birthday. She has had her eye on something from Thirty-One Gifts ever since she attended that party last year and regrets she did not buy it then. Since you do not have time to find a Thirty-One Gifts consultant or another party on short notice, you quickly browse eBay's reliable sellers to see if the Thirty-One Gifts large utility tote your mom wants is available. You are in luck since eBay is a great place to find this trendy brand of accessories. Pair your purchase with a Thirty-One Gifts wallet for a special place for your mom to display family photos, important cards, and her license. You mom loves every color, so choosing a new or slightly used Thirty-One Gifts item is not difficult. Surprise your mom and watch for that great big smile on her face as she opens up your gift and exclaims, "How did you know?" https://i.pinimg.com/236x/cf/98/b0/cf98b0fb64c6aaa84d5e07e49a0e86e6--bridesmaid-gifts-good-morning.jpg
The DadGear Backpack used to be one of our also-great picks but it was discontinued. We liked the bag’s large size and clever storage (like a chamber dedicated to dispensing wipes.) The DadGear’s flaps zipped open all the way—more like a suitcase than a typical handbag—making dumping out crumbs and cleaning easier. If you somehow manage to get your hands on one we still think it makes a great purchase.

Personally, I’m the mom of three; my youngest is 18 months old (as of publication) and still in diapers. I’ve changed my three kids’ diapers on the dirty floor of a hole-in-the-wall restaurant, on airplanes, at Target, and in too many other public places. My journalism background includes stints at the San Francisco Chronicle and other major newspapers, and I have reported on family and parenting for publications such as Family Circle, Working Mother, and Salon. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5e/57/47/5e57473a93b84c2b2dfc3b81c6db02e1.jpg
“It is time to break the silence about children’s mental health and with the support of mission-driven partners like Thirty-One Gifts, together, we can set the foundation for helping children not just in our own backyard, but also provide critical resources to children and families around the country,” said Niki Shafer, senior vice president, Outreach, Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation.  
My favorite diaper bag was my Petunia Picklebottom boxy backpack purchased for a steal off of Craigslist. It wiped up easily, and washed up in nearly perfect condition after our years of use and I regifted it to a friend who ended up in the hospital very early in her pregnancy and didn’t have a chance to go out shopping for one. She loved it too. It’s probably still out there toting around sippy cups. The multiple strap options were amazing. It was a backpack/crossbody/shoulder bag depending on your needs in the moment and the shoulder strap had such a wide range of lengths it hung over any stroller and even standard size shopping cart handles. I wouldn’t pay for a new one, but a nice used laminated “boxy backpack” is well worth the money in my opinion. I believe they now have a larger size backpack option too. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f5/4f/6f/f54f6fa5b77231efd7c82ca9e6f0cdcc.jpg
I sell it so I'm a little biased BUT I would recommend the Organizing Utility Tote.  I used one as a diaper bag BEFORE I started selling it so I loved it before it paid to love it.  A lot of the women in my church use the Organizing Utility tote for diaper bags.  I also used the Cindy tote for awhile since I was a FTM (first time mom) that overpacked for everything. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/88/7f/f7/887ff7c42768ca8d2612a25c95d9522e.jpg

Of course, your “diaper bag” doesn’t have to be a bag designed specifically for that purpose—something else may better match your personal style and have a use after your kids are out of diapers. Parents we know have used bags ranging from this lightweight Patagonia travel tote (a pick in our tote bags guide), to a simple cloth grocery bag, to a waxed canvas farmer’s market bag, to a Baggu drawstring backpack or shoulder bag (our top tote bag pick), to a many-pocketed canvas shoulder bag sold on Etsy, to an expensive Tom Bihn backpack that has a pocket layout that works well for baby supplies (wipes in the bottom, changing pad in the main compartment, bottles in the side pockets). “Because of the removable-laptop-sleeve design, I could use the same backpack with and without the kids,” the Tom Bihn-loving dad told us. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/f0/89/28/f08928ae25088679e4a5fcefe49136be--makeup-primer-face-primer.jpg
So why buy an actual diaper bag? They’re thoughtfully designed with right-size pockets for essential baby gear, and made with tough material that’s easy to clean—inevitably, milk or juice will spill inside, and crushed crackers will find their way into crevices. Mine has been tossed around in my car, dumped on park benches and dragged across wet grass. I once accidentally left a banana peel in it for a few days. “The diaper bag is for the diapering years,” said Meg Collins, founder of Lucie’s List, a blog that recommends essential baby products for new parents. “It’s meant to keep you organized and sane. You have go-to pockets for your keys, diapers and wipes. You don’t have to think or fumble.” That just may help you escape the house a little more quickly.

We’re not the first to give the Skip Hop Duo high marks: Baby Bargains selected it as the best diaper bag of 2017, BabyList called it one of its best picks of 2017, and Meg Collins of Lucie’s List named it among her favorites. It is among the most popular diaper bags on Amazon, averaging just over 4.5 stars (out of five) across more than 1,000 reviews as of summer 2017. Although few would mistake it for some of the $200-and-up diaper bag options out there, its style is sophisticated for what it is. One Wirecutter staffer seeing it for the first time said it looked most similar to our upgrade pick, “with fewer bells and whistles”—a strong endorsement considering she didn’t yet know that this cost about a third of the price of the other bag. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/aa/61/ec/aa61ec0365d6984d55f32cb9b70143cf--makeup-foundation-younique.jpg


Organized with the right pockets. A good diaper bag needs to be roomy enough to hold multiple diapers, wipes, bottles, extra clothing, and other essentials. We found a variety of pocket-closure types—zippers, magnets, Velcro—go a long way toward making a bag intuitive and easy to access. At least one open, exterior pocket to hold a water or milk bottle was necessary; an insulated pocket for bottles was nice, but not essential.
In case you’re wondering how large this bag feels, it is a near perfect size. It’s not so small that nothing fits, but it’s also not a large cavernous tote that gets weighed down and is heavy to carry. When I sling it on my shoulder, it hits my waist. The straps are a perfect length so the bag is not shoved up under your arm pit, but not so long the bag bangs on your hip when walking. Real life photo for you! https://i.pinimg.com/345x/45/81/46/4581469c33f5788d3d6f39f78f556e4e.jpg

To figure out how big of a baby diaper bag you'll need, put some thought into how many things you'll want to be carrying around. It's not just for baby diapers and baby essentials (dont' forget nipple cream, lotions, baby sunscreen, and maybe even one of the smaller best breast pumps), but the baby bag will also be responsible for holding the contents of your purse unless you plan on carrying both the baby bag and your purse around all day (which we don't suggest!). So that means you'll want to make sure the baby diaper bag is big enough to hold all of the baby essentials along with things like your wallet, keys, lip balm, tissues, makeup, sunglasses, and anything else you carry around in your purse on a daily basis. Otherwise it's not really about finding the right diaper bags for moms, it becomes more about shoving in all the baby stuff and leaving mom's things behind!
This was especially true when it came to feeding. Originally, I told myself we would breastfeed―exclusively. I had built up the idea in my mind that this was the correct way of feeding my child, and that anything else was somehow cheating. Plus, I love the connection it brought us, and so many of my favorite early memories are just my baby and me (at all hours of night), as close as two people can be as I fed her from my breast. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/cf/8f/69/cf8f69ddac74646f5edcabee5689faa2--great-friends-hold-on.jpg
I have a regular diaper bag (eddie bauer one) and I also have a utility tote from 31, that I got personalized for the baby, I got it thinking I may not use it as a bag for when he is real little as they seem to need more stuff, but to pack stuff up when we travel, like going to the beach as an extra bag, or to grandma's, aunts etc..  I love the 31 bags, they are nice and durable. If I wouldn't have gotten my diaper bag for a shower gift, then I probably would have just used the 31 bag as my everyday diaper bag!  https://i.pinimg.com/236x/de/39/fb/de39fb3c59a85c87c89aa8b8733c909d--gift-suggestions-the-sparkle.jpg

The Skip Hop Duo Signature, at 1¾ pounds, was one of the more lightweight bags we tested, yet it felt sturdy and durable despite being shoved, tossed, and dragged around at the beach, on a 5-hour plane ride, and to the pediatrician’s office. Like the better bags we considered, it can be carried multiple ways: An adjustable, padded strap is comfortable to carry on a shoulder, and its tote handles make it easy to set down on a floor (like the best bags we saw, it stands upright). The secret to its superior accessibility is a perfect combination of open and zippered pockets—it’s the most intuitive and effortless bag we saw for stowing and retrieving water bottles and toys at a moment’s notice, it can keep valuables secure, and it’s clear what goes where in the bag. A wipeable polyester interior is straightforward to clean; within five minutes we removed all evidence of spilled milk and crushed Cheerios left in the bag for 24 hours. With a strong rating across more than 1,000 Amazon user reviews, it’s extremely popular, and at its current price of about $50 to $60, it’s one of the most affordable bags we tested—plus, it has better overall features than other competitors we tested in its price range.
Thirty One is already the go-to source for durable and stylish totes, backpacks, purses, home decor and now baby––and all with the ability to be personalized. The new baby line isn’t just for families with infants. Sure, there are some seriously adorable diaper bags, bottle thermals, baby caddies and even whimsical pillow designs for the nursery. But it’s also for those of us with big kids too! https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/bc/d5/fe/bcd5fe25868890619bebddbf7776451e.jpg

One of the standout features of the Skip Hop Duo is its combination of 10 open and zippered pockets, which make it the easiest bag for storing and quickly grabbing whatever you need, from a water bottle to tissues to sunscreen. The bag has four external pockets that are great for accessing things one-handed. Two are large front pockets that stay closed magnetically and can hold bottles of milk, other snacks, or diapers and wipes. Competitors’ bags have similar pockets, but the Skip Hop’s stand out for their simple but clever magnetic closure. Two additional elastic mesh pockets on the sides of the bag are capable of securely carrying a baby bottle, a Thermos of coffee, a large adult water bottle, or a big container of sunscreen. We found few diaper bags that have two open, external water-bottle pockets big enough to hold a reusable adult water bottle. Like most diaper bags, the Skip Hop also has an external slot on the back for its included changing pad (which is machine washable). https://i.pinimg.com/236x/5e/22/72/5e227249d25a68feeeb6446ed53d83bb.jpg

The Baby By Thirty-One City Park Diaper Bag in Whisper Grey is a part of the new Baby by Thirty-One line and is way more than a diaper bag! All the functionality of a large diaper bag, but with the modern style of an urban tote. Lots of interior and exterior pockets, including a thermal zipper pocket and hidden cell phone pocket. Carry it as a tote, or sling it over your shoulder with the adjustable crossbody strap.  https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/e0/f3/de/e0f3de94e21ef009b36992345f5cf6cb.jpg
