Whether you’re a soon-to-be-mom, dad or a veteran parent, you want a diaper bag that’s comfortable to carry, has plenty of pockets for quick access, is easy to clean but also doesn’t scream, “This is a diaper bag.” And because you’ll probably use it until your wee one is at least potty trained, the last requisite might be the most important one.
When my kids were babies, the choices were somewhat limited. I opted for a Juicy Couture diaper bag tote that was stylish and super cute, but bulky and difficult to carry with two kids in tow. Today, the diaper bag cup runneth over. If I even had an inkling of desire to do it all over again, a diaper bag backpack would be the way to go. But we’ve listed the best options for totes and designer bags, too, so you have a plethora of choices.
