My Diaper Bag- What kind and what’s in it?

A diaper bag is a VERY important item when you have a baby. It’s a crucial one! When I was picking out diaper bags I didn’t really know what kind I wanted or which one would work best for us. We were gifted 2 at my baby showers, which I’m extremely thankful for! I used them for the first 3-4 weeks, and they worked wonderfully. 

The two I had was the Eddie Bauer Backpack in grey and Ergo Baby brand diaper bag. Not sure what the name of the bag was. They are both great bags, but I wanted something a little more stylish and convenient. Like I said before, something that works for us! 

My Idea of a PERFECT diaper bag!

So I went on the hunt for the perfect diaper bag for us! When I was looking for one I made it a point to have a bucket like style because it’s so much easier to find items in it. Normally the bucket style has pockets that circle the inside, along with more pockets on the outside!  

I still wanted the backpack straps and the long strap in case my husband wanted to carry it in that form. 

Lastly, I wanted something really cute! Because let’s face it, I won’t be carrying a purse anymore. I’ll be putting my sons life and now, mine in this bag when we go out! 

My Diaper Bag

I bought two different ones. I made the mistake of not checking Amazon first, but the first buy was totally worth it! 

The first bag I bought was from Fawn Design. I LOVE their bags! I wanted to buy all of them. The bag I purchased was from the wildflower collection. The color is called bluebell and I bought the mini bag, instead of the original. The original is priced at $169.99. They are vegan leather, which is why I think they are priced so high. I bought the mini because me and E don’t go many places, so I needed just enough room for a bottle or two, diapers, wipes, and a change of clothes.

This bag has two side pockets, 1 open front pocket, 1 front zip pocket, and a large open pocket in the back. It is the bucket style backpack and also comes with a long strap! You can find the bag by clicking here.The inside has 4 open pockets, and a zip pocket! It’s completely convenient and it fits everything I need it too. The bag retails at $94.99! This was my Mother’s Day present to myself. I had a 15% coupon for signing up for the emails as a new customer, so it brought my price down to around $87. This bag was totally worth the buy. You can find this bag by clicking here!

The second bag I purchased was basically a dupe of the mini one I had purchased but it was the size of the original. It was $50.99 on Amazon. You can find it here! The only difference is it’s a honey brown color, and not vegan leather. It looks EXACTLY the same though. This one actually came with stroller straps, the long carry strap, and a changing pad! I purchased this one to have if we stay overnight somewhere or if we are going to be gone ALL day and with my husband. Cause we all know how husbands are, well mine always asks me to put all his junk in my bag. So. It now has to carry all three of our things. 

What’s in our diaper bag? 

So our daily bag consists of:

  • Pack of Wipes 
  • A few diapers, usually around 4-5
  • 2-3 Bottles (Pre-made)
  • A travel size baby powder
  • A travel size Aquaphor lotion. 
  • A reusable wet bag
  • One onesie (change of clothes Incase of a blowout)
  • Burp Cloth 

The back pocket I normally use for my iPad and I just clip my keys and hand sanitizer to the outside and my wallet fits perfectly on the inside! 

This is just my everyday items for if we are running to the store or the park or just around town! 

It’s not everyday we are packing up for out of town or overnights so my mini bag works just fine! 

I really hope other moms find this helpful, along with the review! I am still learning about all the other neat, cute items they have for moms and babies now days! Someone that isn’t even a mom can use this bag as a purse also! It could go both ways! You can find pictures of both bags below!
