Best Diaper Bags for New Parents

Who would've thought babies require so much gear?

Having a baby changes everything, including the amount of stuff you have to haul around on a daily basis. A purse is no longer sufficient when infants require so much gear. But if the thought of carrying a giant diaper bag makes you cringe, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up a selection of fashionable carryalls that are still practical for everyday use.

Kibou Vegan Leather Diaper Fanny Pack

Fanny packs are cool again, and this one is both stylish and convenient for new parents. The lightweight bag features a detachable changing pad to make on-the-go diaper changes a breeze, plus the waterproof pocket is perfect for storing wet wipes. The vegan leather pack is also size inclusive and comes in eight trendy colors, including blush and olive. 

Petunia Picklebottom Wander Stroller Caddy

City parents, this stroller caddy is a must-have. The bag allows you to easily transport essentials while out and about. The insulated cup holders are perfect for holding both your and baby’s drinks, and there’s a front pocket to keep your phone secure. A hidden rear fold-out pocket can hold diapers, a change of clothes or a blanket for chilly days. Even better, the caddy becomes a cute shoulder bag when not using your stroller. 

Skip Hop Iconic Duo Weekender

A bag that can do double duty for weekend trips is perfect for travel-loving moms and dads. Store diapers, clothing, shoes and more inside two packing cubes in the main compartment, while side and front pockets have plenty of room for bottles and snacks. Even better, the luggage sleeve allows you to easily transport the weekender over your roller bag.

KeaBabies Original Diaper Bag Backpack

Backpacks are a great option for parents that always seem to have their hands full. This one is roomy, water-resistant and scratch proof, meaning it will hold up to even the most hectic days. A front insulted pocket is ideal for toting bottles, while eight exterior compartments can fit everything from toys to your car keys. A large changing mat is included to make diaper changes a breeze. 

Baby Brezza Lucia Slide-Out Caddy Backpack

This affordable backpack has a pretty handy extra feature: a slide out compartment that fits diapers, wipes, creams and more for quick changes. Simply remove the caddy to double the interior storage space of the bag. Twelve pockets provide tons of additional organization, and there’s an insulated side panel so food and drinks stay fresh. The backpack’s padded straps keep your shoulders comfortable on long days, or hang the bag from your stroller with the top loop. 

Fawn Design Diaper Bag Bundle

Gone are the days where parents are forced to choose between fashion and function. This vegan leather diaper bag set is seriously hip, and includes everything you need to take your infant on-the-go. The bag itself features detachable backpack straps and an interchangeable messenger bag strap for ultimate versatility. The separate bottle and pacifier holders keep items clean and protected, while the clutch unrolls to become a changing pad. Stroller hooks are a convenient addition when your arms and shoulders are in need of a break. 

Momigo Breast Pump Backpack

This backpack is a lifesaver for nursing parents. The bag’s top layer fits a small breast pump, diapers and other items, while the insulated bottom compartment will keep bottles of milk cool for hours. There’s also a USB charging port and an anti-theft zipper pocket on the back for your cell phone and other valuables.
