Considering how big of a role this item plays in outings with tiny tots, it is important to buy a good one. While it might seem like all diaper bags are created equal, that certainly isn't the case. I learned from experience that just because it has a trendy character on it and it is expensive doesn't mean that it is a great bag!
When shopping for a diaper bag stick to these helpful tips to get one that will last for years without sacrificing style.
- Consider your needs. If you cloth diaper, you will need more room for accessories. If you have multiple children in diapers, you obviously need a bigger bag. If you only have one child to prepare for, a smaller bag will work fine. Bigger isn't always better. If you have extra and unneeded space, you will find a way to fill it with items you don't really need.
- Look for longer straps. Being able to carry a diaper bag on your shoulder is super handy. Trust me, you will need your hands to be free to guide kiddos around!
- Seek a bag with a zipper closure. Velcro is loud and will stick to other items. Zippers keep things safe and secure.
- Look for a bag with a durable base that can stand up on its own. This makes retrieving items easier!
