Remember when diaper bags looked, well, diaper-y? Fortunately, gone are the days of massive, oddly colored, tip-them-just-the-right-way-and-everything-falls-out diapers bags. Now, moms and other female caregivers are preferring bags that are subtle, functional, and most notably, stylish! From backpacks made of vegan leather to totes that look as if they’ve just stepped off the runway, we’ve got the skinny on the 10 best diaper bags for stylish moms.
HaloVa Diaper Bag Multi-Function Waterproof Travel Backpack
The HaloVa Diaper Bag is proof that “style” doesn’t necessarily mean “expensive.” Weighing just over a pound, and including straps for use as either a backpack or tote, the HaloVa is easy to lug around. Inside, users will find a large main compartment, plus several smaller pockets for holding things like bottles and towels. Perhaps best of all, the HaloVa is made with high-quality and durable oxford fabric that’s easy to wipe clean.
JuJuBe Multi-Functional Structured Backpack
Stylish mamas love JuJuBe backpack-style diaper bags, and it’s easy to see why. These affordable bags are always reasonably priced, and are packed with features typically found in much more expensive products. The Multi-Functional Structured Backpack includes:
- four mesh pockets
- insulated bottle pockets
- a padded pocket in which to carry a laptop
- quick-grab pockets for mobile phones and car keys
Perhaps best of all, the backpack and its included folding changing pad are made out of machine-washable fabrics, so moms can take the bag anywhere and everywhere.
Skip Hop Duo Signature Messenger Diaper Bag
For the stylish mom who prefers messenger-style diaper bags, there’s the Duo Signature Messenger Diaper Bag from Skip Hop, another trusted brand for baby gear. This affordable bag is packed with features designed by parents, including:
- a zip-top closure
- an easy-access tech pocket
- 10 total pockets, two of which are mesh for holding bottles
The most exciting of the Duo’s features may just be the patented shuttle clips which easily convert it from a shoulder bag to a stroller bag.
JJ Cole Brookmont
We love the giant pocket conveniently located right on the front of the JJ Cole Brookmont diaper bag. This fully insulated pocket fits three large bottles, making feeding on the go a total breeze. Stylish moms are sure to appreciate the JJ Cole Brookmont’s many other features, too, which include:
- a machine-washable zip-out liner (brilliant!)
- an exterior slip pocket for a laptop or tablet
- a matching changing pad.
Petunia Picklebottom Inter-Mix Backpack
Petunia Picklebottom makes all kinds of great bags, but when it comes to both style and function, we like the Inter-Mix Backpack the best. Available in a variety of color options, the Inter-Mix has a spacious interior big enough to hold everything a mom and baby need for a day out. Uniquely, this bag also includes multiple exterior pockets, so grabbing things like bottles and car keys can be done easily, without having to unzip the entire bag.
Paperclip Jojo Bag
Paperclip makes high-quality backpack-style diaper bags with one particular quality that stylish moms love. A zippered panel on the back of the bag folds out into a changing pad with sides designed for baby’s privacy and safety. Of course, that’s not all Paperclip’s bags have to offer parents on the go. Other features include:
- large mesh pockets and cubbies
- cushioned straps for comfortable wearing
- slide-and-secure hardware for getting in and out of the bag quickly
As an added bonus, each Paperclip bag is made out of vegan leather and no fewer than 42 recycled water bottles, so moms can feel both stylish and eco-friendly.
Stokke Changing Bag
Designed to be worn as a messenger-style shoulder bag or as a backpack, the Stokke Changing Bag practically oozes style and sophistication. The bag comes with removable rings which allow it to attach to a stroller, ensuring a parent’s easy access to all Baby’s necessities. A waterproof side pocket is the perfect place to store a bottle, while other pockets are conveniently sized to hold everything from car keys to toys. A detachable changing purse and a changing mat are also included with the Stokke Changing Bag.
Fawn Design Original
Available in six gorgeous colors, the Fawn Design Original is one of the most popular diaper bags on the market. It’s also one of the most functional. This beautiful bag boasts a grand total of 12 pockets for holding everything from bottles to toys, wipes packets to extra changes of clothing. The half-round zippered top is remarkably easy to open with one hand, while the detachable backpack straps allow the bag to be worn either backpack or messenger style.
Freshly Picked Convertible Classic Diaper Bag Backpack
Another stylish diaper bag worthy of its popularity is the Freshly Picked Convertible Classic Bag Backpack. All of Freshly Picked’s products — including their adorable shoes! — are designed by mothers to ensure ultimate functionality. The bags are made of high-quality vegan leather with a wipeable nylon interior and metal feet on the bag’s bottom to ensure safety and cleanliness. Inside, 10 multi-sized pockets are perfect for storing anything and everything Baby might need.
Dagne Dover Indi Diaper Backpack
The stunning Dagne Dover Indi looks like a backpack, but it has all of the functionality of a great diaper bag. Perfect for new and busy parents on the go, the Dagne Dover Indi clips to the stroller to ensure one always has easy access to diapers, snacks, and other necessities. There’s even a luggage sleeve and laptop pocket, so that the Indi can go anywhere and everywhere your family does. Other features we really like include:
