Your baby is on the way, so you’re finally in the market to buy a baby bag–also known as a diaper or nappy bag, depending on where in the world you are! But…with so many on the market, it can be hard to even know where to start. So today, we’re sharing some of our favorite tried and tested baby bags that won’t let you down. ,
Most of us have been carrying handbags for years. We picked them based on popular styles, colors, hardware, and brand. But…what most of us may have rarely done is selected a handbag for practical reasons. When choosing a baby bag, this needs to come high on your list of requirements–but that doesn’t mean you need to check style at the door!
Frankly, there’s a lot to consider: from bottle warmers and coolers, to removable change mats, easy access pockets for diapers and wipes, and how best it attaches to your stroller…the list goes on. Never have you needed so much from a bag before! So the question is, can you get the baby bag of dreams to hit the style stakes and satisfy the practical elements?
We think you can–and we’ve identified our top picks for baby bags that are equal amounts sensible and stylish.
