Top Picks for Cool Diaper Bag Alternatives

Women's handbag acting as a diaper bag with items to care for the child

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am ready to ditch my diaper bag. My baby is officially a toddler, which means I don’t need to carry around massive amounts of diapers, multiple outfit changes and a slew of travel-size infant products. In fact, sometimes I can get away with throwing a diaper and a small pack of wipes in my purse. I feel so liberated!

I’m also really excited to start carrying around something that’s a little “cooler” than my totally obvious mommy diaper bag. Diaper bags have a time and a place and my trusty old diaper bag got me through some tough times, but now I’m ready to give it the boot. I’m ready to reclaim some of my Mama Style!

The trick to ditching your diaper bag is to choose a purse that is still roomy enough to carry your personal items, as well as the essentials you need for your toddler. You also want to choose a fabric that is easy to clean, wipe down, or wash. Finally, your new bag should also be easy to throw over your shoulder or in the undercarriage of your stroller.
