Ohhhh the diaper bag search. I wanted something that met my two never-ending requirements: both stylish and functional. I rounded up my favorites in each category here.
BEST DIY: Tote Savvy $79.99
This tote insert will turn any large bag into a diaper bag. I've been using mine in my Madewell Tote pre-baby and have loved it. It's made of nylon so it's easy to clean, it has an insulated/waterproof pocket for baby bottles or your own water bottle, lots of other pockets and storage, and a clip for keeping track of your car keys. Perfect budget option, or for when you just can't give up your own purse to carry a diaper bag you don't love as much. Use code ALLIE for 15% off.
BEST BACKPACK: Fawn Design $145.99
The backpack diaper bag has to be the best invention ever. Hands-free, for when you need to carry the car seat and the diaper bag and groceries and Everything Else all at once. I love the functionality of this one and the look (hello, minimal design and gold hardware). There's four outside pockets, 5 inside pockets, and the faux leather easily wipes clean. You can purchase these hooks to attach to your stroller as well. Such a win in the diaper bag department.
BEST SPLURGE: PacaPod Firenze $520
If you're in the market for a high-end diaper bag, this is the one for you. Carried by celebrities all over the UK, this bag is made of real leather and is top of the line. The genius PacaPod system consists of two removable, zippered, waterproof pods, one designed for feeding and one designed for diapering. It boasts a variety of other features like a separate compartment for a laptop, stroller hooks, changing pad, the red PacaPod even turns into a mini backpack for a child. See this video at the bottom of the page here of how it works. This bag is organization and style at it's best.
I've been so impressed by all three of these and am so glad that there are stylish options in this department.
